CHATHAM, NJ - “It was quite simple,” said Phyllis Campbell age 95. “The girls (Juniper Village associates) set up everything. We just had to answer a few questions, that we felt well today to get the shot, and then went into the room where we got the shot. And the at was it!”
On Monday, January 11, all the residents and staff at Juniper Village at Chatham received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, administered through CVS. According to Frank Pascale, the Executive Director, they had a 100% participation rate with the exception of perhaps one or two individuals due to medical issues. “The residents were very excited and happy to get the vaccine, the associates as well, and we look forward to the second clinic when we will get full immunity.”
“This is a superb, wonderful day. You can tell by the environment and everybody’s exuberance that we have been waiting 10 long months to get to this point where we can see the light at the end of the tunnel when we’ll be together with family and friends and do the things we love to do.
Everybody has worked so to get us to this point to keep people healthy, prevent illness where possible, and be a family,” said Lynne Katzmann, CEO and Founder of Juniper Communities. The Bloomfield, NJ based seniors housing company owns/operates 22 communities in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Colorado.
Juniper Village at Chatham is located at 500 Southern Boulevard, Chatham, NJ. (973) 966-5483.
