Vaccinations begin at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village
After months of being on the front lines in the battle against COVID-19, Fort Scott Presbyterian Village Assisted Living staff began the process of receiving the vaccine on December 29 administered by Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas.
"There's no doubt the senior population has been hit hard by the virus, along with the health care workers who've treated them," said Ginger Nance, our executive director. "We couldn't be happier to know there's finally a bit of light at the end of such a difficult year."
Fort Scott Presbyterian Village is participating in the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program, a public-private partnership with CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens made possible in part by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. A clinic will be scheduled in the coming weeks to provide immunizations to residents and additional staff at the senior living community.
Approximately 2 weeks after residents receive their 2nd dose of the vaccine they can safely come and go from the campus. They can attend church, go to the grocery store, or go visit family and friends without having to quarantine when they return.
