Public Announcement COVID-19
December 22, 2020
Fairhaven residents and team members are among the first to take advantage of the federal plan prioritizing long-term care residents and staff. Fairhaven, includes memory care, assisted living and staff in every one of our communities — at no cost to them. Long-term care residents will also be in one of the first waves of vaccination recipients as directed by state guidelines.
The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, are being administered within Fairhaven through our distribution partner, Omnicare, a CVS Health subsidiary. Residents and team members in 9 of our Fairhaven community will receive COVID-19 vaccinations starting December 30th through January.
“Our residents and frontline caregivers are among the most vulnerable to this pandemic,” says Tessa Wilson, Director of Operations. “We are making every effort to bring the COVID-19 vaccine to our team members and residents as soon as our distribution partner, CVS, is ready.”
The vaccine requires two doses as this is a booster vaccine given three weeks apart. Tessa Wilson has scheduled vaccine clinics and CVS will have pharmacist administering the required two doses to each resident and staff that elect to accept the vaccine.
Fairhaven is confident the COVID-19 vaccine will transform the healthcare industry and continue to provide a safe place for our residents and future residents to call home. Our teams will continue maintaining all the safety protocols currently in place to help protect our residents, staff and families, including the appropriate use of personal protective equipment, ongoing community testing, social distancing and specialized cleaning. It is our ongoing goal to keep our residents, staff, and families healthy, happy and safe.
Fairhaven is confident that our daily health and wellness protocols along with being one of the first recipients in long-term care facilities to receive vaccines makes our communities one of the safest places for seniors. COVID-19 has not stopped families from needing support for all other chronic health conditions they face and understand the stress from trying to provide care at home or needing a safe place.
