Covid-19 Vaccination News
At Legacy Retirement Communities, ensuring our residents and associates are safe during the COVID-19 pandemic is paramount and is part of our daily lives. Finally, a new important tool to help battle the virus is here. Just days ago, the FDA, along with the CDC, approved the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. As part of a U.S. government program, Legacy residents and associates will be among the first group to have access to the vaccine as soon as it is available.
Since the first reports of the COVID-19 virus, Legacy has been monitoring the situation and adjusting our protocols as things rapidly change—sometimes even daily. Communicating closely with our residents and families is of utmost importance to us, while continuing to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our residents, associates, and families. The CDC recommends we follow the “high risk” guidelines for those who are over the age of 65 and have pre-existing conditions.
On behalf of everyone at Legacy Retirement Communities, our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19—this includes not only those diagnosed with the virus, but also their friends and family. Many of you may also be feeling uncertain about the future and what resources may be available to assist you in this challenging time. While many restrictions continue during this pandemic, Legacy continues to be a ready resource and partner for those wanting or needing senior living services.
