Residents & Staff Prioritized for Covid-19 Vaccine

|

Each day since Mid-March our teams have worked diligently to protect our residents and each other from Covid-19. This virus that has shut down countries and brought the world to a standstill has been on all our minds--we are sure yours as well-- nearly constantly for most of 2020. Finally, we breathe a sigh of relief and see a clear pathway to health, safety, and a return to having friends and family joining us in our community.

Long Term Care communities and healthcare staff were given top priority to receive the Covid-19 vaccine by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each individual state working with pharmacy partners are working at this moment on distribution plans.

ย 

Many of you have questions regarding the vaccine and its distribution. We have put together a Fact Sheet to help answer some of those questions and will be rolling out an informational campaign to continue our commitment to transparency and communication.
