Legacy Village of Tifton to Begin COVID-19 Vaccinations as Early as Jan. 22

Included in Phase 1 of the CDC vaccine roll-out recommendations, all residents and staff of Legacy Village of Tifton will be offered COVID-19 vaccinations.

TIFTON, Ga. (January 22, 2021) - Legacy Village of Tifton, a premier senior living and memory care community in Tifton, Georgia, will take a major step toward ensuring a healthy, safe community by offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all residents and team members starting on January 22.

Members of the senior community have been directly affected by the COVID-19 virus, and it continues to pose a high risk due to their age and possible underlying medical conditions — something the senior living community has worked tirelessly to counteract over the past several months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the high risk for seniors, as well as the increased risk of direct or indirect exposure for healthcare personnel, the CDC has included both populations in their recommended Phase 1 roll-out of vaccine administration.

“We are truly thankful to be able to offer the vaccine to our residents and team members. The added layer of protection will give the entire Legacy family a peace of mind that we haven’t had in some time,” said Chris Beckham, Executive Director at Legacy Village of Tifton.

Legacy Village of Tifton has been diligent in their efforts to procure the vaccines, with first communications beginning in early fall of 2020.

As a result of ongoing communication with pharmacies at both the local and national levels, sufficient quantities of vaccines were secured for all residents and team members who wish to participate.

“COVID-19 has had such an impact on the day-to-day life of all of us. We are hopeful that the introduction of this vaccine will start our journey on the road to reuniting families and friends. We want the best for our residents and are so fortunate to be able to continue serving them during this time,” said Beckham.

As the CDC recommends two doses of the vaccine for optimal protection against the virus, Legacy Village of Tifton has already scheduled tentative dates for the second dose of the vaccine.

Legacy Village of Tifton will continue to follow all COVID-19 safety guidelines set forth by the CDC following the administration of vaccinations, including N95 masks worn by all team members, social distancing, and regular wellness checks for all residents and team members.
