At Leisure Care, we’ve always prioritized the health and well-being of our residents. It’s part of our commitment to ‘doing the right thing.’ It’s how we have operated for nearly 50 years, how we have navigated the past few months, and how we will manage the upcoming distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.
We are excited to announce that Leisure Care communities have partnered with CVS pharmacies to administer the COVID-19 vaccine on-site in each of our communities for every resident, making the vaccine easy and convenient for those who need it most. CVS pharmacies are well equipped to provide appropriate temperature-controlled storage of the vaccine, meeting the manufacturer’s required temperature range.
We know that people have strong feelings about this vaccine, and we want our residents and their families to have peace of mind, knowing that our team is trusting medical professionals and scientific data.
What to know about the COVID-19 vaccine
- The COVID-19 vaccine will not cause COVID-19. The vaccine does not use a live virus.
- The vaccine is more effective than the seasonal flu vaccine and the chickenpox vaccine.
- Based on trials, approximately 10% of participants experienced side effects. Known side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine are short-term and mostly mild.
- The vaccine will not immediately eliminate the pandemic, but it is a powerful tool for better health.
It’s not too late to be included in the first phase of vaccine distribution. When you move into a Leisure Care community, you’re not only getting safety protocols that exceed CDC’s guidelines, and you’ll be among the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Your safety is our top priority.
Contact a Leisure Care community today to learn how you can have priority access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
