Through the dedication and partnership of our community teams, our support center, and local clinic providers we are proud to share that 100% of our communities have a confirmed vaccine provider. We are grateful to the fire departments, local pharmacies, grocery stores, and health departments along with many others that worked with us to provide vaccine access for our residents and associates. Along with achieving 100% confirmed clinics we remain committed to a sustainable vaccine accessibility program for our individual communities.

Vaccine Clinics at Holiday Retirement

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?

Not at this time. We believe that taking the vaccine is a personal choice. Our commitment to Holiday residents and associates is that we will provide both access to educational materials as well as the earliest and most convenient access to the vaccine.  We know that the vaccine is the next step in beating COVID-19, and we also know that when our Holiday family can make informed choices, we are staying true to our mission.

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?

No. Our residents and guests that are fully vaccinated do not have to wear masks in accordance with current CDC guidance. Currently, in an abundance of caution we are still requiring all associates wear masks and appropriate PPE until further notice.

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:
