Long-term care facility glad that COVID-19 vaccine enroute

A Sturgeon Bay long-term care center is hoping for a happy and healthier 2021 after COVID-19 vaccines are administered to staff and clients.  Anna's Healthcare on S. 18th Avenue has been notified it will begin receiving the vaccine by month's end.  Surveys by the AARP Public Policy Institute and the Scripps Gerontology Center show Wisconsin had the sixth-highest rate of COVID nursing home deaths.  So, Tama Begley, the Administrator of the Anna's Healthcare facility, says getting the vaccine to staff and clients who want it is a necessity.

Begley says her long-term care center had a close call with COVID about two weeks ago when someone at the facility tested positive.  Isolation protocols,  masking, and social distancing procedures has paid off.  Tests that were taken this week came back negative.
