Thanks for your continued support as we continue to navigate through all of the challenges that the pandemic has brought to all of us.
We are excited to announce we have been recently notified by the IL Department of Public Health that your loved ones and our staff will receive the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine in the very near future. We will continue taking steps to protect your loved ones and our staff from the virus and will share updates about the vaccination process as they become available.
The vaccine will be administered, at no charge, to your loved one and staff through CVS pharmacy. We are strongly encouraging all of our staff and individuals to accept the vaccine.
Currently the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine has been selected by Illinois for distribution and administration. Studies conducted on this vaccine have shown a 95% efficacy in preventing COVID-19 infection in person’s age 16 and older. The vaccine is indicated appropriate by the CDC for all persons except those that have a history of severe allergic reaction to an injectable vaccine.
The vaccine is administered as a 2-dose series, 3 weeks apart. Your loved one and staff will be screened to ensure the vaccine is appropriate before administration.
Despite vaccination, all safety precautions and guidelines currently followed will remain in place, until we are otherwise notified by IDPH that those precautions are safe to cease. We again thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to do all we can to safeguard your loved ones and our staff.
