Vaccines Information

Our Recommendation on Getting the Vaccine

While the vaccine is not mandatory, Senior Leadership encourages staff members to accept the vaccine when it is offered to protect themselves, their families and loved ones, their co-workers, and our residents.


Guidelines after Vaccination

It is important to remember that until an individual receives both doses of the vaccine they are not considered immunized.

Current measures and Orders remain in place:

  • Continuous masking and wearing appropriate PPE is required regardless of whether or not staff have received the vaccine
  • Physical distancing guidelines remain in place
  • Hand hygiene is still important and should be practiced at all times (regardless of COVID-19)

Questions

Alberta Health Services has an excellent Vaccine - COVID-19 site that provides more information regarding the vaccines and the schedule/phases. Below we have included the rollout schedule for our sites so far and will update as we get more information.

Resident Vaccine Updates

While vaccinations for COVID-19 are offered to residents, it is voluntary. The percentages below are an indication of how many residents (or their guardian/decision maker) opted to have the vaccine. We hope to have more choose to be vaccinated with more education and information about the vaccines and their efficacy.

It is important to note that resident vaccinations are still a priority for the Government of Alberta. A few locations were delayed by a few days but still received the vaccine within the recommended timeframe.

*Differences in percentages of residents who received the vaccination from the first to second dose is due to moves, placements, deaths, and opting out of the second dose in a few cases.
