The MMA wishes, again, to thank Lisa Letourneau, MD MPH, and her colleagues in the Governor’s office for her tireless efforts as a liaison for Maine’s physicians and clinical colleagues during the pandemic.  Please contact her at lisa.letourneau@maine.gov for questions about the upcoming seminars.

COVID-19 vaccine ordering is now available to all COVID-19 enrolled provider sites. Smaller independent physician offices are excited they can now offer patients shots at their offices.

The Maine Medical Association applauds the efforts of Maine public health officials after their announcement they will be offering more doses to community physician practices in the coming weeks.

As the demand for COVID-19 vaccinations seems to be waning in some areas many states have started to shift focus from large-scale mass throughput sites to smaller locations such as independent community physician offices.

For detailed information on the ordering process, please review the Maine COVID-19 Vaccine Request Process document.

Important reminders:

Practices that have not been approved as a COVID-19 Vaccine Provider but wish to can visit Maine’s COVID-19 Vaccine Providers Portal webpage to begin enrollment.
