Release from AMFM Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — This week was V-Day 2 as employees and patients at AMFM Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers (N&RC) received the 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. With the help of their partner Lifetree Pharmacy, all 19 AMFM centers were the first of West Virginia’s long-term care centers to complete the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and likely the first in the United States.
More than 2,600 employees and patients at AMFM Centers received the COVID-19 vaccine and out of this number, more than 200 AMFM employees and patients received their first dose. Most patients and employees who receive the second dose should be up to 95% protected from COVID-19 about seven days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine.
AMFM used their partner pharmacy, Lifetree Pharmacy, to administer all vaccines. Since December 15th, Lifetree Pharmacy oversaw the rollout of more than 11,000 vaccines across 67 long-term care, assisted living centers and other organizations in Phase 1a. In addition, the pharmacy was honored to serve and help protect our Veterans across two West Virginia Veteran locations by administering the vaccine.
“I am so thankful and proud of our employees, patients and families for coming together to protect each other by making the choice to become vaccinated. We signed up to care for our patients and each other and chose a profession that cares, and we do not take that responsibility lightly. Make no mistake, we will continue to wear face masks, social distance, practice good hand hygiene and follow CDC guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19,” shared John Elliot, Owner of AMFM.
During the first vaccination clinic in December, 2,138 patients and employees received their first dose of the vaccine. Below are the number of vaccines that will be completed during this week’s clinics.
