Ashby Ponds, a senior living community managed by Erickson Living, today announced that it has completed its COVID-19 vaccination clinics with 98 percent of its 1,665 residents receiving both doses.
"Since the onset of the pandemic more than 12 months ago, our team has worked diligently with residents, their families and public health officials to help safeguard the well-being of everyone who calls Ashby Ponds home," said Will Nance, Executive Director of Ashby Ponds. “I'm proud of the exceptional results we have achieved by working together – and I'm thrilled that so many of our residents now have an additional level of protection against COVID-19. We could not have reached this important landmark without the professionalism of our partners at CVS, the unwavering commitment of our staff and the resilience of our residents.”
To celebrate the vaccine milestone, Ashby Ponds held a 10-minute fireworks show on March 8 conducted by Pyrotecnico™.
“The fireworks display was a special way of expressing our appreciation to the residents, employees and partners of Ashby Ponds. We held it in their honor!” stated Mr. Nance. “With the completion of our vaccine clinics, it was also a fun way to convey our confidence and optimism in the future. We have received numerous positive comments about the fireworks since Monday evening.”
