Coronavirus Updates

December 23, 2020

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have particularly good news today and want to provide a brief update.  We have been informed of the dates for our vaccination program with Walgreen’s pharmacy to begin administering the Covid-19 vaccine.

Our first round of immunizations will begin Tuesday, January 5th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  A second round will take place on January 26th and a final round on February 16th

The plan is for Walgreens to administer the immunization to as many people as possible on January 5th, but if everyone is not able to be accommodated on January 5th, due to volume or vaccine supply, they will be vaccinated on January 26th.

As you are likely aware, the vaccine requires two separate doses.  Those receiving their first vaccination on Jan. 5th will be scheduled for the second dose on January 26th.   Those receiving their first dose on January 26th will be scheduled for their second dose on February 16th.  

Immunizations will be given by appointment only. We have been working with residents (and their responsible party when needed) to prepare for this process.  We will contact residents individually next week with their appointment time and location. Please bear in mind that we have no flexibility with dates or times of the vaccination process.  It will important for residents to be available and ready on the date/time assigned to them. 

We will provide a more detailed update on our plan next Tuesday, December 29th.  Today’s update is to inform you that our vaccination program has been scheduled for the first full week of January. 

I wish everyone a safe and merry holiday, and what appears to be a very promising and welcomed beginning to the New Year.

Take care and stay well.

James Kneen,

Executive Director
