Highland Springs, a senior living community managed by Erickson Living in Dallas, Texas, today announced that based on its completion of onsite COVID-19 vaccination clinics, along with residents who have received vaccine shots in the local community, 96 percent of those who reside on campus have received 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 Highland Springs home,” said Matt Neville, executive director of Highland Springs. “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 Highland Springs has now received both doses, and look forward to safely enjoying the abundant on-campus amenities, dining experiences, and friendships that are hallmarks of Highland Springs'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.
“The clinics were extremely well-organized, and there were staff from every department helping out,” said resident Joy Beatty. “My husband Bill offered to help, too. The community gives to us, and we in turn give back to our community. We've always lived that way.”
Highland Springs is one of 20 senior living communities managed by Erickson Living. To date, more than 24,500 residents at these communities have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
