The KFL&A region is celebrating a major milestone, as it has achieved a vaccination rate of more than 90 per cent for residents of long-term care and retirement homes within the district.
This comes after Public Health challenged staff and residents in long-term care homes with the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington to get vaccinated during the month of April.
“With the support of community stakeholders, partners, staff, and residents, we congratulate nine long-term care and retirement homes that achieved this milestone,” Dr. Kieran Moore, Medical Officer of Health at KFL&A Public Health said. “We are so pleased as this brings us one step closer towards preventing COVID-19 from spreading amongst our most vulnerable population.”
“Sending a very special thank you to all of the staff at these Homes for everything they do to keep residents and co-workers safe and healthy,” Dr. Moore added.
