McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Thursday, September 8, 2022

This is a McCormick Care Group update for Thursday, September 8, 2022.

On September 1, 2022, Health Canada approved the Moderna/Spikevax COVID-19 bivalent vaccine which offers more protections against the Omicron variants.  Long term care home residents, caregivers and staff are being prioritized for the booster.

We will be holding a vaccine clinic for all caregivers, families and staff on Thursday, September 29, 2022 from 9:00am to 5:00pm.  If you are eligible to receive the vaccine and want to take advantage of this opportunity to receive the booster at the Home, please advise Angela Murray or Loralee VanBeest.  Angela can be reached by email at amurray@mccormickcare.ca or by phone at 519-432-2648 ext. 2403.  Loralee can be reached by email at lvanbeest@mccormickcare.ca or by phone at extension 2463.

Please advise Angela or Loralee by Wednesday September 21, 2022 so that we can place an order for the required doses.

Thanks for all you are doing to make our home as safe as possible for our residents, families and staff.

Steve Crawford, CEO
