OVER 93% OF RESIDENTS RECEIVE THE COVID-19 VACCINE – 95% IMMUNITY ON ITS WAY
With 2 vaccination dates in the books and a third taking place in the near future, The Center for Discovery is thrilled that by the end of February, over 93% of its residents and 900 people total will achieve 95% immunity from the COVID-19 virus.
Immunity for The Center for Discovery is well on its way and with it comes a renewed sense of hope as we look toward a future that resembles the past – togetherness, visits with family and friends, joyful gatherings, annual musicals, spirited classrooms, and more.
To administer the vaccines, The Center for Discovery worked in conjunction with PharmScript occurring over the course of 3 dates – spanning from December through February, 2021. The vaccine given to staff and residents was the Pfizer vaccine, which was granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA on December 11th of 2020. The entire process was in fact, seamless, and involved The Center’s incredible leadership, Nursing, and Clinical teams, along with many volunteers who all were extraordinary in their efforts to ensure the vaccinations were highly organized and enjoyable. In addition, no adverse reactions were noted.
The Center for Discovery community feels lighter, more optimistic, and is eager to move forward!
