COVID-19 Vaccine at 46 & Ten
Along with thousands of other long-term care facilities, we are participating in a program with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to help us most efficiently distribute these vaccines to our residents free of charge once they are available. Assisted Living facilities are prioritized to receive the vaccination after administration to Nursing Homes. Our staff will also have the opportunity to be vaccinated through this program.
While we await logistical information, we have embarked on a campaign to educate our residents and staff, see the attached. You may refer to the CDC website for more information at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/vaccines. We will keep you informed of this process as we move forward.
VillageCare at 46 & Ten is scheduled to be receiving the vaccine on Saturday, January 30, 2021, for residents and staff. VillageCare is partnering with CVS, one of the approved pharmacies to administer the vaccine. This process requires two doses be administered. Below is are the scheduled vaccination sessions:
- The 1st dose is scheduled to be administered on-site, at 46 & Ten, on Saturday 1/30/2021.
