Cedar Crest, an Erickson Senior Living community in Pequannock, New Jersey, today announced that it has completed its COVID-19 vaccination clinics with 95 percent of its 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 local health officials to help safeguard the well-being of everyone who calls Cedar Crest home,” said Todd DeLaney, executive director of Cedar Crest. “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.”
Every resident who wanted a vaccine at Cedar Crest has now received both doses, and look forward to safely enjoying the abundant on-campus amenities, dining experiences, and friendships that are hallmarks of Cedar Crest's active, vibrant lifestyle. Residents, staff and visitors continue to take precautionary measures, including wearing masks, maintaining social distance and frequent hand-washing, to keep each other safe and well-protected.
Residents have expressed gratitude for the opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccination conveniently on campus.
“Cedar Crest is a caring community. Our residents do care for each other, and the staff is wonderfully supportive. So many residents have come to me to say how thankful they are to have been living here during the pandemic and how fortunate we are to receive our Covid-19 vaccinations here without the hassle reported by friends from outside as they try to sign up for shots.” said Mimi Tausner, Resident Advisory Council President and liaison to the residents' Health Services Committee. “Now that the vaccine is here, I am confident and optimistic about the future. I can't wait to travel again, to be able to resume group activities with larger groups of residents here, to watch my grandchildren play team sports, etc.”
Cedar Crest is one of 20 senior living communities managed by Erickson Senior Living. To date, more than 24,500 residents at these communities have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
