Residents, Staff of Goddard House Receive COVID-19 Vaccine

Goddard House, an assisted living facility in Brookline, held its first COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Saturday, January 16, where 121 residents and staff were vaccinated, according to Candace Cramer, Goddard House president and CEO. Two more clinics are scheduled for February through the CVS Health/Omnicare program.

“With this vaccine, seniors and their families can rest more easily knowing our community offers a safe place to live for the foreseeable future,” Goddard House said in a recent email newsletter. “We will continue to follow all public health directives concerning social distancing and mask wearing, as well as our own robust safety protocols, including screening, testing, deep cleaning and sanitizing to keep everyone safe (residents, staff and visitors).

Throughout this pandemic, we have focused not just on safety but on maintaining the vibrancy of communal life for our residents with opportunities for meaningful social engagement, exercise and a full dining program.”
