COVID-19 Vaccines: Hope is here

All Capital Senior Living communities have completed two rounds of the COVID-19 vaccine.

We are grateful to have been included in the first wave of vaccinations across the country. As residents and team members have received vaccinations, a sense of hope, energy and renewal is filling our communities.

Through our partnership with CVS Health, we have been able to administer no-cost, on-site vaccines in each of our independent living, assisted living and memory care communities. And for all new and future residents who weren’t able to participate in on-site clinics, we are happy to coordinate scheduling vaccine appointments and provide courtesy transportation.

Frequently asked questions

Will I get sick from COVID-19 by getting the vaccine?

No. Per the CDC, none of the COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States use the live virus that causes COVID-19. You will not get sick or test positive for COVID-19 by receiving the vaccine.

Are there any known side effects from the vaccine?

There may be side effects to the vaccine, such as pain, swelling and headaches up to 36 hours after being vaccinated.

How many shots of COVID-19 vaccine are needed?

At this time, Capital Senior Living is using the vaccines provided by Pfizer and/or Moderna. Each of these vaccines require 2 shots, spaced apart.

Will masks and social distancing still be necessary?

We will still need to wear masks and practice physical distancing until a large proportion of the population is vaccinated and we are sure the vaccine provides long-term protection. Initially, we will not have enough vaccines for everyone who wants one, and the virus will still be transmitted.
