Vaccine and Testing Update

Resident Vaccination

On January 5, 2021 Thrifty White pharmacy staff partnered with Charter House Health Services to administer the first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to the residents living within our Short Term Rehabilitation Center, Assisted Living and Supportive Living. The second dose of the vaccine will be scheduled for the first week of February 2021.

We have confirmed the date of January 19, 2021 with Thrifty White pharmacy to partner with Charter House Health Services to administer the first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to our residents living within Independent Living.

Staff Vaccination

Charter House staff have been offered and many have received the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine through the Mayo Clinic employee COVID-19 vaccine process.

After the Vaccine

Even after receiving the vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) state we will need to continue to wear masks, maintain physical distance, avoid being with others who are ill and hand sanitize frequently. Loosening restrictions will be based on guidelines from CDC and MDH as well as the positivity rate we see in our community, county and state.

Testing

All Charter House staff continue to get tested for COVID-19 twice weekly, and have since October 2020. We continue to test residents living within our care venues weekly for COVID-19.
