Dear Residents, Families and Staff,
The positivity rate for Pennsylvania remains at 9.1% for the past week. For Philadelphia County the positivity rate has decreased from 4.5% to 3.9%. This offers cautious optimism. We currently have no cases.
We are in the process of scheduling booster clinics for the residents who received the Pfizer vaccine. We continue to monitor for when the Moderna and Johnson vaccines are approved for boosters. We will keep you informed when we have more information about COVID vaccine booster shot clinics.
I continue to ask everyone who receives this memo to try to keep encouraging those you know who have not received the vaccine to do their part! Please vaccinate, don’t procrastinate. You can obtain your vaccine through the following link: https://www.vaccines.gov/search/
Flu vaccine clinic:
Residents who use either Dr. Poulshock or Dr. Fogota will be receiving their flu shots from the physician. Residents who have another physician will need to schedule their flu shot and provide the care department with a copy of the vaccination.
I would like to make you aware that Wesley Enhanced Living has stopped accepting Cigna Medicare in our skilled health centers. Cigna is no longer offering the ISNP program starting 2022 in Pennsylvania. Open enroll for Medicare benefits begins October 15, we are encouraging our current Cigna Medicare residents in all levels to switch to another plan that we are contracted with. We will not be able to accept Cigna participants into the health center for short term rehab if the need arises.
Thank you and stay WEL!
