Vaccine Information

The Latest on COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

ProMedica Senior Care, in support of its ManorCare, Heartland and Arden Courts centers, has partnered with CVS Health for the CDC’s Pharmacy Partnership for Long Term Care Program. CVS will be administering COVID-19 vaccine to our patients, residents and employees who have not previously received the vaccine (See below for additional FAQs from CVS).

ProMedica Senior Care is pleased that those caring for the country’s most vulnerable during the pandemic in our centers as well as our centers’ patients and residents will be among the first to receive the vaccine. We realize you may have questions so we have assembled information from reliable industry resources such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pfizer, Moderna, and CVS Health to help address some frequently asked questions. Our center teams will also be available to help address logistical questions and discuss next steps and consents for vaccination.

For more information on the vaccine, please review the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine fact sheets for recipients and caregivers.
