Residents and staff of The Lakes at Litchfield, the premier retirement community on the Hammock Coast, will receive their first COVID-19 vaccinations on, Monday, December 28th.
“We are extremely excited and blessed to offer the COVID-19 vaccine to our Residents and Staff. The Pandemic is far from over outside of The Lakes at Litchfield; but for our Residents and Staff, the end is finally near.” Said Tim Layton, The Lakes at Litchfield’s Executive Director.
The Lakes at Litchfield partnered with CVS Health to administer the vaccine and will be able to complete more than 250 vaccinations at the first vaccine clinic today.
A second clinic will be taking place on Monday, January 25th to administer an initial dose to any New Residents and Staff or any that chose not to receive it during the first clinic. Also, the second dose will be given to the residents and staff who received an initial dose at the first clinic. A third clinic will be held at a later date for the residents and staff who received the initial dose at the second clinic.
Tim Layton, The Lakes at Litchfield’s Executive Director said, “We are committed to ensuring the safety of our residents, their families, and our team members. Throughout these unprecedented times our residents have continued to live a Weller Life and this vaccine clinic is a critical step to ensuring our residents can further do so. Make no mistake, our resident’s lives have been disrupted; just as everyone else’s, however not near to the extent. At The Lakes at Litchfield our residents have continued to live and have fun in a safe, private, gated community with socialization, dining, wellness, housekeeping, maintenance, on-site health center and other amenities available to them. We firmly believe that people have been safer and better off living in our community than they have been on their own.”
