Last Wednesday, the residents at Woodstone in Rice Lake got their second round of COVID-19 vaccinations. The COVID-19 vaccine seems like such a longtime coming for many. Giving the vaccinations requires long hours and administrative work for the pharmacies but they are determined to put an end to this pandemic. This pandemic has changed everything about senior living communities.
“The 2nd round of the Covid vaccine was so much more than just another shot for our residents and staff. It was a culmination of months of waiting and praying for a return to some semblance of normalcy in our lives”. – Greg Loiselle (Executive Director of Woodstone Rice Lake)
Even though the pandemic had put a roadblock to many things, this wasn’t one of them. Woodstone of Rice Lake transformed their COVID-19 vaccine clinic into a party offering cake and drinks!
In honor of their second round vaccines, they threw a “Crush COVID” party. Woodstone provided orange and grape crush pop for their residents to enjoy and a “Crushing COVID” stand that they could take their picture with. It was a festive atmosphere full of smiles and laughter! The residents are feeling grateful for the opportunity to receive their second COVID-19 vaccine. After many months of specific protocols and heightened precautions, having the second vaccine is a great relief for many.
We are not out of the woods yet, but we can see the clearing beyond the trees, and that brings us excitement and hope”. – Greg Loiselle (Executive Director of Woodstone Rice Lake)
