EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Health care workers at Deaconess Health System are now receiving second doses of COVID-19 vaccines.

Dr. Phillip Adams rolled up his sleeve for the second time in just three weeks. We first introduced you to Dr. Adams on Monday. He is a doctor in the COVID-19 units at Deaconess.

Dr. Adams says he is thankful to be among the first to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in the Tri-State. Officials with Deaconess tell us more than 2,000 frontline healthcare workers will receive that second, required dose this week.
