COVID-19 Vaccine Update
By Karen Lee
We are thrilled to announce that the people SEEC supports are part of the 1b group to become vaccinated in Maryland. We are considered a long-term care provider and as such we are partnering with CVS Omnicare for our vaccine clinics here in Maryland. Our plan for now is to have the SEEC office be the physical site for the vaccine clinics. The goal is to have all the people we support be able to access whatever vaccine is made available to us.
Just last week we learned that our SEEC staff were part of group 1a and as such have started getting vaccinated through the county and in Washington, D.C! It’s incredibly exciting news. We know some people we support and staff might be getting the vaccine through other places, either with a residential facility or through a second job, so we will be working to capture that information as well. Our goal is to be able to offer the vaccine to everyone we support and staff who want it.
We will be given dates for when the vaccines will be administered. We will have a plan in place for how to get as many people vaccinated as possible both safely and efficiently. We are looking at the logistics and making plans.
SEEC is in the process of educating and informing SEEC staff and the people we support about the safety and effectiveness of both the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines. There is a FAQ page of the website where people can learn more about vaccine rollout and about the vaccine itself. Staff are being briefed in weekly staff calls and family updated through weekly Wednesday family calls. We want everyone to have all the information they need to make a well-educated decision. It’s important to know that both vaccines are 94% or more effective and serious side effects are minimal. We will continue to keep you updated as we know more. It’s an exciting time and a light at the end of the tunnel.
