Last week one of our CALA members communities, Elmbrook Village at Bozrah, was able to receive the COVID-19 vaccination on site. CVS employees traveled to the senior living community to administer the first dose of the vaccine to staff and residents.
Kevin Horan, Executive Director at Elmbrook Village, confirmed that CVS had eight people show up and 122 people were vaccinated in less than 2 hours. We consider their first COVID-19 vaccine clinic a resounding success. The community will receive their second dose of the vaccine two weeks time.
A heartwarming story that took place was that CVS pharmacist, Victoria Sullivan was on site to administer the Pfizer vaccine to her grandparents, Bernard and Elizabeth Getty.
At CALA, we take pride in our member value but our number one priority will always be the safety and wellbeing our member community’s staff and residents.
