As the Rhode Island Department of Health rolled out the vaccination program for nursing homes and long-term care facilities, we are pleased to report that vaccinations are underway in January and February for our residents and employees.
Our January vaccine clinic was super organized and went very smoothly, thanks to our department leaders who worked closely with the Walgreens staff … and, of course, to our residents and employees, too.
(In fact, Walgreens workers noted we were among the most prepared and organized of any facility they have visited.)
At Hattie Ide Chaffee, we are committed to doing our part to protect our residents and staff and, ultimately, to stop the spread of COVID-19 and put an end to this pandemic nightmare once and for all!
Pictured here are some of our staff members getting their first COVID vaccination. Second doses are set for February.
