Learn how you may be able to participate in a vaccine clinic.*
We are guided by our evidence-based Infection Control and Prevention program, based on CDC and WHO guidance for long-term care communities, to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
Experts at the CDC and FDA have prioritized healthcare workers and long-term care residents in the U.S. to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as it becomes available. Our communities are in the process of scheduling vaccine clinics* with CVS Health for our residents and team members. With each vaccine administered, the risk of infection within our communities is incrementally reduced. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Contact your local community for specific information on how to participate in a vaccine clinic.
Who are we testing?
Residents are given a COVID-19 test before moving into the community and as needed. All new team members are tested before starting, and current team members are part of our surveillance testing program.
What types of testing are we doing?
Surveillance testing of a sample of team members to identify if they have the virus and prevalence testing of all residents and team members after there is a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result.
When are tests performed?
We are performing weekly surveillance testing. Prevalence testing is conducted after the receipt of a positive COVID-19 test within the community.
What are our next steps?
We will remain nimble—adapting our approach based on the evolution of the pandemic, local area positivity rates, and guidance from health authorities.

*Clinic dates, times, and availability vary by community and are managed by CVS Health. To be considered for participation in a vaccine clinic, a resident must be moved in to a participating U.S. community 10 days in advance of the scheduled clinic date. No respite or short-term stays will be eligible to participate; all contractual obligations must be satisfied upon move-in, including payment of a move-in fee to the extent permitted by applicable laws. Note that the COVID-19 vaccine is given in two rounds and the second round will be scheduled accordingly.
