Vaccines are adding a new layer to the risk around Covid 19

Villas Strong Vaccination Event Thanks to all who helped make this event a success! The CVS Pharmacy team had nothing but the highest praise for our organization, hospitality & preparedness. Our residents & staff were seen quickly & efficiently.

Like many we all have been daydreaming for months about what life will be like once we gets the COVID-19 vaccine. Hug our children, Grandkids and get back to living life.

Except now that we have received the vaccine, we are finding out it’s not that simple. The vaccine isn’t a ‘get out of jail free card’ we still need to wear a mask, wash our hands and social distance.

Once you have received the second dose of the vaccine protection is estimated to be about 95% two weeks after the second dose.

It’s still unknown how well the vaccine will keep the virus from spreading. It is too soon to tell if a couples who has been vaccinated should be ok to share a meal together indoors. The data so far shows they probably won’t transmit much, if any, of the virus. Since covid arrived here almost a year ago, the coronavirus has been all about risk. The vaccines are adding a new layer to that, even as they offer hope that the end is near for a pandemic that has killed many.

Current guidelines recommend outdoor dining for restaurant’s with small group. If you want to go to your family’s house guidelines is family only and small group with outdoor dining and activities. Any activities with large group with increased risk of exposure may result in self isolation.

San Clemente Villas will continue to provide updates to Residents and family members as guidelines and recommendations change from the Health Department and Community Care Licensing.

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.
