McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Wednesday March 9, 2021

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Tuesday, March 9, 2021.

There are no probable or suspected cases of COVID-19 among our residents or staff at this time.

For our new admissions arriving to McCormick Home- we extend our warm welcome and gratitude for selecting us.  Many have been inquiring about how their loved one can receive his/her COVID-19 vaccination.  At this time, there is no plan in place through the Middlesex-London Health Unit, and we continue to advocate for access and a solution.  The Pfizer vaccine is not a vaccine that can be stored on-site, which makes its administration more challenging.  Alternatively, if you are able to take your loved one off-site, you can book an appointment at the Agriplex.  If this is an option you would like to explore, please contact Tanya Pol, Administrator, at tpol@mccormickcare.ca or call 519-432-2648, ext. 2321, and we can discuss the process through which you can schedule an external appointment for your loved one.

As a reminder to our approved essential caregivers, if you have scheduled your COVID-19 vaccination appointment and have not advised me, please do so as soon as possible, as our statistics must be submitted to the Ministry of Long-Term Care every week.

Enjoy this week’s spring-like weather!

Tanya Pol,
Administrator
