We are delighted to announce that we’ve started vaccinating team members and residents at some of our communities. We’re required to follow state and local directives and coordinate with our pharmacy partner, but ultimately there will be the opportunity for all communities to take part in our vaccine program. After many months of fighting this vicious virus, it’s exciting to take such a BIG step towards protecting ourselves and our vulnerable residents and doing our part to stop this pandemic.
We know that, like anything new in medical science, you have questions and concerns. You may have had prior negative experiences with a healthcare provider, or you might have heard negative rumors about vaccines and aren’t sure if they are true or not. Rest assured that the virus has proven to be safe and efficacious in extensive clinical trials and significant independent FDA evaluation and approval. The world’s best and brightest scientists and physicians have been focused on developing and testing these vaccines and ensuring they’re safe to provide to people across the world.
Why It’s Safe
What to Expect
If you should have any questions or concerns about the vaccine, please speak with your general manager. We want to make sure we answer your questions and alleviate any concerns you might have.
On January 16th, Lorie Dancy, Solvere Living’s Chief Compliance & Wellness Officer got the vaccine at Homestead Hamilton, NJ. After 24 hours, she feels great and only had mild soreness at the injection site.
Lorie says: “I feel fortunate, I’m making a difference in helping people to stay well. I’m doing my part not only for myself but for others too. It takes a village to get through this and the risks which are minimal, outweigh any fears or myths. I stuck to the factual researched proven information when making my decision to get vaccinated. It’s important to set this example and personally I have frail older adults who are my parents that I care for, and I want them to be well so we can enjoy special times together later this year.”
