It’s been a hopeful week at the three long-term care facilities operated by the MICs Health Care Group.  CEO Paul Chatelain says something that happened is like a light at the end of the long COVID-19 tunnel.

“Rosedale residents in Matheson received the first vaccination on Tuesday,” he explains, “and then on Wednesday residents of South Centennial Manor and Villa Minto were vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine.”

“This is what we’ve been waiting for,” Chatelain adds. “Actually, I think it came about a week ahead of schedule but we’ve been in a lot of preparations on an hourly basis what to expect when it does arrive, what to do.”

Porcupine Health Unit staff administered the shots and will be back for the booster shot within 28 days.
