Pegasus Senior Living’s Latest COVID-19 Updates
Pegasus Senior Living Begins Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccination Booster Clinics
Pegasus Senior Living is committed to protecting the health of our residents and employees. We are pleased to announce that we will be holding vaccination clinics for the flu and new bivalent COVID-19 vaccines at all of our properties in mid-October.
“We are ready and willing to do all that is necessary to maintain our residents’ health and well-being, as well as the staff members on-site caring for them,” adds Daniel Leaf, Pegasus’ Senior VP of Operations. “Our teams are getting everything ready to make the vaccination clinics a success.”
The bivalent, or combination, COVID-19 vaccine aims to increase cross-protection against multiple variants. It is currently recommended for all individuals 50 years and older and is available in most U.S. pharmacies.
The FDA has issued emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines, authorizing bivalent formulations of the vaccines for use as a single booster dose at least two months following primary or booster vaccination. These “updated boosters” target the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 and omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5.
“The aim of the COVID-19 vaccine campaign is to generate the strongest and broadest immunity against all variants, including pre-omicron variants,” explains Pegasus’ Senior VP of Health and Wellness, Dr. Sandra Petersen. “Data suggests that this goal can be accomplished with initial two-dose vaccinations focused on the original COVID-19 strain and then a bivalent booster.”
