Seniors concerns about the Covid Vaccine

Director of Clinical Services Cara Deiro, LVN ext. 103

Seniors in nursing homes and assisted living centers will be among the first Americans vaccinated, following recommendations by a federal advisory panel. Older adults living at home will need to wait a while longer.

A recent survey shows that seniors are willing to get the vaccine but they're worried about availability and cost. "95 plus Americans who are 65 or older have Medicare. And Medicare part B, according to the CARES Act, will cover all the cost for the COVID vaccine.

Doctors said all seniors should get the vaccine but they should reach out to their primary doctor or nurse practitioner to discuss the best options for them.

"The side effects are very likely to be the same side effects that the person had from the flu vaccine. May be aches, mild fever ... may last a day or two. That does not mean they will get COVID from the vaccine.”

Lower your risk:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • If you are 60 or over and have an underlying health condition such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes or respiratory illnesses like asthma or COPD, the World Health Organization advises you to try to avoid crowds or places where you might interact with people who are sick.

San Clemente Villas will be offering the Covid Vaccine for our residents and staff. As soon as we get more information when the vaccine will be available we will notify residents and family members the times and dates of the in house clinic that will be provided by Omnicare pharmacy.
