COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Connecting with you as we kick off the New Year to share the latest news as it relates to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Tabitha. With vaccines underway, we are cautiously optimistic!

We’re pleased to report 95% of Tabitha Residents and 52% of staff (across all campuses) have received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. And second doses are slated for Jan. 18 at Main and Williamsburg Campuses and Jan. 20 at Crete Campus. At this time, we will also begin first doses to those Residents who’ve recently joined us and additional staff.

Tabitha is anxious to learn of changes that may be implemented as vaccination progresses. However, until we receive further guidance from governmental health agencies, all COVID-19 protocols will remain in place. It is safe to say that this next phase will take some time, and screening along with mask usage will continue throughout 2021.

Tabitha’s COVID-19 unit, located at Main Campus, has successfully supported local hospitals, assisting them with patients who are recovering from COVID-19 and stands ready to do so. With holiday gatherings complete, we do expect a surge in positive cases.

The vaccination process is a step in the right direction. We value your support and patience and will keep you posted as we receive more direction.

Inspire(d),
