Charlestown, a senior living community managed by Erickson Senior Living in Catonsville, Md., has announced that it has completed its COVID-19 vaccination clinics with 97% 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 Charlestown home," said Clara Parker, executive director of Charlestown. “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.”
