COVID Vaccinations for Oaks Residents
Our pharmacy partner, Kinney Drugs, will be administering COVID-19 vaccines at two on-site vaccination clinics.   The vaccines will be administered by trained, licensed professionals (including pharmacists) from Kinney Drugs. Following administration, all recipients will be closely monitored for the recommended 15 minutes as well as throughout the day.

Doses are administered  21 days apart.

Everyone receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is required by law to have, on file, signed (or documented verbally) evidence of informed-consent being provided.  This consent must be obtained before a vaccine can be administered.
