Nearly all residents of The Cambridge Assisted Living and Cottages have received their first round of COVID-19 vaccinations.
About 90% of the residents received the first shot on Jan. 29, said Linzi Michel, Executive Director of The Cambridge Assisted Living and Cottages. The vaccination event was arranged with SageView Clinic and Quincy Valley Medical Center. The second dose will also be administered by SageView, Michel said, adding, “They were wonderful.”
Before partnering with SageView, The Cambridge looked into getting the vaccine administered through CVS, but the process was taking too long, Michel said.
While almost all residents have received the vaccine, the remaining 10% or so have chosen not to be vaccinated, Michel said. Some of these residents are in hospice care and their families chose not to vaccinate.
A large portion of the employees at The Cambridge are also yet to be vaccinated, Michel said. Most of the employees have chosen not to be vaccinated at this time, not because of a lack of availability, she added.
