Covid Vaccine

UPDATED February 10, 2021

Vaccine Information

We are aware that the vaccine is rolling out. The priorities are elders in long term care and front-line medical providers. Dr Dhanak and Dr Landsverk are scheduled to have the vaccine in early January. We have not been given information about when other elders will be able to be vaccinated. Please check with your county dept of health who should be coordinating the vaccination plans. We will share any information we get in the coming months. Here is to a better 2021.
