LA PLATA, MD — Staff at a La Plata nursing facility celebrated the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine. Sagepoint Senior Living shared images of staff being inoculated against Coronavirus this past Tuesday at Sagepoint’s Skilled Nursing Center.
Maryland is still in Phase 1A of vaccine distribution, which includes healthcare workers, first responders, and nursing home residents.
The company said, “Tuesday marked COVID-19 vaccination day at Sagepoint’s Skilled Nursing Center! We are so relieved to receive this opportunity to help protect the health and safety of our residents and employees.”
Residents of the company’s assisted living facility will be next in line for vaccinations under Maryland’s phased in vaccination plan. However, that cannot happen until the facility gets the go-ahead from Governor Larry Hogan’s Office and the Maryland Department of Health.
The facility will notify residents and families as soon as a date is confirmed.
