Are You Going To Be Booooosted?
Canada is one of countries that deploy the 3rd, i. e. booster Covid-19 vaccine dose. Gladly the local health Unit and Retirement Home Regulatory Authority made this vaccination available to our residents in late October 2021, and more than 90% of our residents have had their 3rd dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and their flu shot!
Thanks to our fully Vaccinated staff has worked hard throughout the Pandemic to keep all of the residents safe, there have been NO Covid -19 positive case in our residents! We would like to congratulate the residents and their families for doing their part to stay safe and healthily with Chateau Glengarry!
There are different opinions about this dose. Some support; some other scientists consider that at this point, the situation of COVID-19 vaccine booster is still weak. For most people, they may not be necessary and may divert the dose urgently needed by others in less developed countries. On August 4, the World Health Organization called for a moratorium on the use of boosters at least until the end of September, our Health Unit in Ontario weighed the pros and cons and decided the implementation for seniors, which received very high penetration rate in Chateau Glengarry. One senior lady told me that, she has refused flu shots for several decades, however, for Covid vaccine, she has taken all three because she disliked this pandemic, would play her role to increase the overall Great Wall of Immunity' against coronavirus, how brave our residents are!
Two weeks passed, we carefully monitor the side effect experienced from the COVID-19 vaccine and the good news is nobody had the Symptoms within 48 Hours of COVID-19 Immunization and so far.
Boost or not boost? With the proliferation of delta variant in many countries, health authorities may not have time to wait for a clear answer.
As individual, when it is possible, if no medical reasons, it is recommended by our senior residents who are 90-year-old or 103-year-old, JUST DO IT!
