Grace Senior Living of Douglasville to Begin COVID-19 Vaccinations as Early as Jan. 14

Included in Phase 1 of the CDC vaccine roll-out recommendations, all residents and staff at Grace Senior Living of Douglasville will be offered COVID-19 vaccinations.

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (January 14, 2021) - Grace Senior Living of Douglasville, a premier senior living community in Douglasville, Georgia, will take a major step toward ensuring a healthy, safe community by offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all residents and team members starting on January 14.

Members of the senior community have been hard hit by the COVID-19 virus, and it continues to pose a high risk due to their age and possible underlying medical conditions — something the senior living community has worked tirelessly to counteract over the past several months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the high risk for seniors, as well as the increased risk of direct or indirect exposure for healthcare personnel, the CDC has included both populations in their recommended Phase 1 roll-out of vaccine administration.

“To say we’re celebrating the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine would be an immense understatement. This vaccine will help us ensure our residents and team members are safe and protected from the virus, which gives us great hope for the future,” said Jason Gibon, Vice President of Operations at Legacy Senior Living, the parent company of Grace Senior Living of Douglasville.

Grace Senior Living of Douglasville has been diligent in their efforts to procure the vaccines, with first communications beginning in early fall of 2020.

As a result of ongoing communication with pharmacies at both the local and national levels, sufficient quantities of vaccines were secured for all residents and team members who wish to participate.

“The vaccine is the first step toward reuniting our residents and their families, and for that we are thankful beyond measure,” said Gibson.

As the CDC recommends two doses of the vaccine for optimal protection against the virus, Grace Senior Living of Douglasville has already scheduled tentative dates for the second dose of the vaccine.

Grace Senior Living of Douglasville will continue to follow all COVID-19 safety guidelines set forth by the CDC following the administration of vaccinations, including N95 masks worn by all team members, social distancing, and regular wellness checks for all residents and team members.
