Concordia Retirement Center to Begin COVID-19 Vaccinations as Early as Jan. 29

Included in Phase 1 of the CDC vaccine roll-out recommendations, all residents and staff of Concordia Retirement Center will be offered COVID-19 vaccinations.

BELLA VISTA, Ark. (January 22, 2021) - Concordia Retirement Center, a premier senior living community in Bella Vista, Arkansas, 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 29.

Members of the senior community have been directly affected 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.

“Knowing that our residents and team members will have this extra layer of protection gives us a peace of mind that we haven’t had in quite some time. We’re both thrilled and relieved to be starting down this path,” said Angela Clark, Executive Director at Concordia Retirement Center.

Concordia Retirement Center 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.

“We’re hopeful that the vaccine will bring us one step closer to reuniting our residents and their families after a year of distancing,” said Clark.

As the CDC recommends two doses of the vaccine for optimal protection against the virus, Concordia Retirement Center has already scheduled tentative dates for the second dose of the vaccine.

Concordia Retirement Center 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.
