There’s been much anticipation, and many questions circulating, since news that New Jersey is ready to begin distributing the FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine. The CDC and the New Jersey Department of Health has set forth a vaccination plan that includes various phases of distribution.
We are pleased to announce that the first round (CDC Phase 1A) of vaccinations at The Villa will take place on Monday, January 11th. Prioritization of distribution has been determined by the state, as per its vaccination plan. For The Villa, this includes all staff members and our most vulnerable population of residents in our skilled nursing level of care.
Vaccinations will be distributed through our partnership with CVS Pharmacy and administered by a licensed professional at The Villa. All designated individuals will receive the vaccination free of charge. For those who receive this first dose on January 11th, the second dose date is scheduled for Monday, February 1st.
The health and safety of our residents and staff is, and will continue to be, our highest priority. As we implement this next layer of prevention and protection, we will not let our guard down. We will continue to follow the same strict protocols and procedures we have already established to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
If you or your family have concerns regarding the vaccination, it’s important to refer to a credible internet source for reliable, up-to-date information. Educating yourself about the COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to understand its benefits and prepare for vaccination. By taking time to review important facts, you’ll be better prepared to make an informed decision, when the time comes.
We are hopeful the vaccination will be a step towards eradicating this devastating disease. As we receive additional information regarding the next phase of vaccinations and the individuals included in that phase, we will provide updates on this page.
In the meantime, if you have any specific questions regarding vaccination distribution at The Villa, please reach out to Dominic D’Ambrosio, Administrator, at (973) 867-1500.
