STATEMENT FROM THE MASSACHUSETTS SENIOR CARE ASSOCIATION REGARDING THE BAKER ADMINISTRATION'S PLAN FOR COVID-19 VACCINE PHASED ROLLOUT
The Massachusetts Senior Care Association together with our residents, their families and caregivers are extremely grateful to state and federal public health officials for continuing to prioritize the protection of residents and staff in nursing homes, assisted living, and rest home residents, by ensuring they are in the first cohort of COVID-19 vaccine recipients.
The Baker Administration's planned rollout is great news and supports our collective hard work to further protect our vulnerable residents and their dedicated caregivers.
Long-term care administrators will continue to work in partnership with the state, community organizations, public health officials and others to educate our frontline staff, residents and their families on the efficacy and safety of the vaccine.
