Dementia families receive COVID-19 vaccine

COVID-19 Vaccine at the LIAD Center

With the COVID-19 pandemic having affected over 30 million Americans, many pharmaceutical companies have rapidly developed vaccines to be administered to prevent the spread of the disease. Some, thankfully, already approved by the FDA for emergency use authorization.

On March 25, 2021, the LIAD Center proudly collaborated with Rite Aid Pharmacy to provide the hands-on support the community has always relied on us for. Staff, families and local community members safely gathered to receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at the facility.

“Partnering with Rite Aid Pharmacy to help vaccinate a vulnerable population has been an exciting honor,” said Lindsay Knudsen, LMSW, of the LIAD Center. “In addition to supporting our community in a safe and healthy step forward from these difficult times, it also felt incredible to reconnect with our staff and families. While the LIAD Center has continued its mission, supporting our community in person is so dearly missed and we are eager to resume in-person programming. The first step is to assure the upmost safety, and so it is our privilege to have a part in that by offering the COVID-19 vaccine at our facility.”

The LIAD Center is excited to feel a glimpse of hope during this unprecedent time. Nevertheless, we still have a long way to go, so mask up and stay safe!

Special thank you to our event sponsor, Care Connections Home Care for their support.
