On January 22, 2021 there were 101 residents, health care staff and partners of The Springs of Simpsonville who were vaccinated by CVS. Peggy Masterson stated it is the first time we have been on the offensive in this fight against COVID-19. Staff and residents celebrated as they received the vaccine that starts them on a process of achieving herd immunity and then slowly reuniting with families and friends. Many staff and residents gave testimonials of how the vaccine is vitally important to changing the way we live and to stop people from getting ill.
Several staff members who contracted and recovered from COVID-19 received the vaccine and wanted to share with others that this vaccine gives greater immunity than the virus itself, and that was the reason they wanted to be vaccinated. Their wish is that no one ever contract it that, those they love or assist in care and they urged others to take the vaccine to keep all protected.
While we know this will take some time, we are encouraging as many who are able to take the vaccine so we can stop the spread of the Pandemic. It is important to share information on this vaccine to increase acceptance. #Vaccination Saves Lives.
