Hello dear families,
I hope each of you is doing well and staying safe. As a province we are generally doing well, despite the spike in numbers we have been seeing since Christmas. Its now more important than ever that we continue to practice our safety protocols to avoid exposure to this virus.
At York Care Centre we are preparing to roll-out our vaccination plan for residents. While we do not currently know the date that our residents will receive their COVID-19 vaccinations, we expect it to occur in the coming weeks, if not sooner.
Our team is ready, we have a plan in place to vaccinate our residents using our own nursing staff as soon as the vaccines are available to us. Our staff is well trained on appropriate immunization methods and how to handle any adverse reactions. Our residents will receive the 2-dose Moderna vaccine, given 4 weeks apart. Its important you are well informed on the COVID-19 vaccine. Please take some time and read the attached information sheet, supplied by the Department of Public Health.
Starting Monday, Jan 11th, care staff will be reaching out to families, and residents to obtain consent for resident vaccinations. Take some time and read the information provided in the information sheet, know the risks and benefits of the vaccine and ask any questions you feel are needed before you consent to vaccinate. During the time you receive the call for consent, our staff will also review the risks and benefits with you again so that you are well informed.
