MBK Senior Living Coronavirus Update: December 8, 2020
You’ve Always Been Our Priority. We’re Glad the CDC Agrees!
At MBK Senior Living communities, our residents’ health, safety and wellbeing are our priority. Always has been. We’re incredibly grateful that the CDC has prioritized our residents too by including them in the first phase of COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
We’ve partnered with CVS and Walgreens as our preferred pharmacy provider to administer the COVID-19 vaccines, on-site in each of our communities for our residents. Making it easy and convenient for them. While there are undoubtedly many polarizing opinions on the vaccine, we trust the experts and the scientific data. Here’s what we know:
- The COVID-19 vaccine is NOT using a live virus – you cannot get the coronavirus from the shot.
- The vaccine is more effective than seasonal flu and chickenpox vaccines.
- In the trials conducted, side effects were mostly mild and short-term.
No vaccine can immediately eliminate a pandemic, but it’s another tool (like face masks, social distancing, testing, and sanitizing practices) that can help us take a big step in the right direction.
