LTC staffers should take a lesson from the residents they care for
Recent statistics show that roughly, 95% of long-term care and assisted living facility residents will take the Covid 19 vaccine as soon as possible but only 40% of staffers will do the same.
Many of the residents in these facilities have survived frightening times before, events like the Great Depression, WWII, Korean and Vietnam wars; some are even old enough to have lived through the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. They do not fear the vaccine; they welcome it. The older generation understands that this vaccine is not optional — it is mandatory.
Take a lesson from the people you serve
A vaccine is only effective if people take it. The fears about it being brought to market so quickly are valid but the only way to eradicate this disease is through vaccination. Staffers working in these facilities need to heed the wisdom of the people they are taking care of and get vaccinated as soon as possible.
SpecialtyRx has already rolled out their Covid 19 vaccination plan and everything is going smoothly. As always, we are here for you every step of the way.
