Methodist Village Senior Living (MVSL) Begins COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics
 
 
FORT SMITH, AR (December 29, 2020) – MVSL has partnered with Walgreens to begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine to residents and staff across their campus. Their first vaccine clinic December 30, 2020; the second clinic will be 28 days later, January 27, 2021 and the third clinic will be February 24, 2021. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found a COVID- 19 vaccine to be safe and effective. “We know our residents are at a high-risk for getting very sick, being hospitalized, or dying from COVID-19. We believe early vaccination of both residents and those caring for them is critical to help protect this population,” said Melissa Curry, CEO of MVSL.
MVSL employs 225 health care staff that are on campus for 24-hour care of close to 200 elders, the most vulnerable to COVID-19.  MVSL has worked diligently to provide education and counseling to ensure compliance. “Our goal is to have 100% of our residents and staff vaccinated. We are hopeful this vaccine will be a lifesaver for residents and staff, and also expedite the reopening of our facilities to family members and loved ones.” said Bryant Dooly, COO.
