The residents at the Parc at Harbor View are witnessing history firsthand. Last Thursday, 68 residents, between the ages of 74 and 98, received the first round of the COVID-19 vaccine. The senior living community partnered with CVS Pharmacy and Pfizer to coordinate and administer the vaccine.
Marketing Director, Amy Ordway, was grateful for the partnership and impressed with the effortless execution of the vaccine distribution.
“The whole team pulled together in what was an effortless routine and process. It was fast and painless and the residents were left feeling happy and safe after they had been so eager to receive the vaccine.”
Residents reported to the activities room between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. for their first dose of the shot.
“I thought it was very well set up,” said resident, Millicent Aronson. “The people were there to check your questionnaires and they were very nice and polite. They gave a great shot. After the shot, we had a little rest and got a bottle of water with a pretty blue ribbon tied around it. I didn’t have any problems or soreness immediately after receiving the shot or even the following day.”
The staff at the Parc at Harbor View planned to monitor residents for any side effects. The second round of the shot is scheduled to be administered on February 4.
“I thought it was very well organized and everyone seemed very happy with it,” said resident, Ellen Leary. “We were all so grateful that we were able to get the vaccine.”
