COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ

If a new resident has been vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine, do they still need to follow our 14-day quarantine policy for new residents?

This will depend on the resident's current vaccine schedule. If the new resident meets the following criteria, they do not need to quarantine. Our community team will verify that the new resident has completed both doses and at least 10 days have passed since the second dose.

Will the vaccine be mandated for Holiday Retirement residents and associates?

Our commitment to Holiday residents and associates is that we will provide a safe environment for both. We announced on August 24, 2021 that Holiday will require all employees who are working in and traveling to communities, and new residents, to receive their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by October 4, 2021

If a new resident is at least 10 days past their full COVID-19 vaccination schedule, do they still need to follow our 14-day quarantine policy for new residents?

No, they no longer need to quarantine if fully vaccinated.

Will I still have to wear PPE and practice social distancing if I get vaccinated?

All guests have to wear masks and we are encouraging residents to wear them as well.

Advocating for Vaccines

 

At Holiday, our goal regarding COVID-19 vaccines is to provide the most efficient access to the vaccine for all of our residents and associates. While we are excited that our Assisted Living communities were approved for prioritization in the federal pharmacy program, access for our Independent Living communities remains dependent upon the local county or state guidelines. Each individual state and county is currently making their own prioritizations when it comes to vaccine distribution. As an organization, Holiday does not have access to the vaccine on a national scale.

 

Every day, we continue to reach out to state decision makers and local county health departments, grocery store pharmacies, and any other provider we become aware of, to request that an onsite vaccine clinic be hosted at our community. Even though the vaccine is an option in many counties now and could be the right choice for a resident, we certainly recognize that it is difficult for many to attend a public vaccine clinic.

We believe that every resident should have access to safely receive the vaccine in our community without the headache of travel, long lines, and additional risk of exposure. Because of our strong belief in that access, we have secured onsite clinics for over 30% of our Independent Living communities with our local outreach efforts. We will not stop until we reach 100%. Over the coming days and weeks, we will continue to see changes in how the vaccine is accessed and distributed as the Biden Administration makes decisions and publishes executive orders.

We will continue our local outreach for each community until a federal program prioritizes Independent Living across the nation or until access to the vaccine is provided to all Holiday Retirement communities.

 

The COVID-19 vaccine is administered in two doses taken a few weeks apart.  For information on the vaccines currently in production, clinical trials, safety, and efficacy, read more here:
