This month, our Friend of Kirkwood Partner spotlight is our pharmacy, Senior Care Pharmacy! The folks at Senior Care really do such a wonderful job caring for our community and we are thankful they have agreed to take over COVID Vaccine clinics from here on out! Below, we hear from them about the upcoming clinics at Kirkwood.
“Senior Care Pharmacy, the pharmacy provider for Kirkwood by the River, was only one of seven independent pharmacies in the country that was chosen as a Phase One vaccine provider by the CDC. Even though the CDC designated another pharmacy to hold the first few clinics at Kirkwood, Senior Care Pharmacy will be holding future vaccination clinics for new residents and staff. Since late December, Senior Care Pharmacy has vaccinated over 20,000 residents and staff, and held more than 250 clinics in skilled nursing facilities throughout the state. As a pharmacy partner specializing in senior living communities, the ability to provide a solution to its customers is very rewarding on both a personal and professional level.
Due to the decrease in Covid cases in Senior Living Communities since the vaccine has become available, many communities are now allowing visitation. Therefore, we encourage everyone to get vaccinated as they become eligible.”
Thank you Senior Care for your partnership!
