Our Resident Care Director at Commonwealth Senior Living at Charlottesville, Yulonda, said it best when she noted that throughout the pandemic, we have all been looking for a way to make a difference. The COVID-19 vaccine is the next step in making an impact on the lives of the residents in our communities, their loved ones and each other. We are looking forward to this vaccine leading our communities back towards the environment our residents and families have grown to love – including group activities, outings, and HUGS.
Beginning on January 12, we have now completed 21 successful vaccine clinics across our community with the remainder of our communities’ scheduled in the coming weeks. With 94-95% effectiveness, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) says over 14 million individuals in the United States have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and over two million have received their final dose. We are proud to do our part in “crushing COVID” and continuing to protect our beloved residents and associates.
