Dear Edenton Residents, Family members and Staff;

Last week, the CDC recommended that adults who are moderately to severely immunocompromised or over the age of 65 should be able to receive an additional updated 2023-2024 Covid-19 vaccine dose. Yesterday, we consulted with Dr. Hemen Shah, Edenton’s medical director and he supports the offering of this vaccine to any Resident eligible and interested in this booster vaccine.

The guidance for an eligible person to receive the vaccine is that it should be at least four (4) months since the last vaccine (Edenton offered it on November 3, 2023) and three (3) months since a covid-19 infection.

The next scheduled offering of the 2023-2024 Covid-19 vaccine will be offered by Whitesell Pharmacy here at Edenton on Friday April 19th.

If you are interested in receiving this next booster please speak to either Resident Services or the nurse in assisted living. A consent document will need to be completed and signed for the vaccine. Please RSVP for this vaccine by April 15th.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

 

Be Well,

RaeAnn Butler
