A Covid outbreak at a Connecticut nursing home has killed 8 fully vaccinated residents and infected 89 others. Among the 89 people infected at Geer Village Senior Community in Canaan, 87 were fully vaccinated.
Now what I find amazing is that these folks weathered the storm before we had the vaccine. So they get vaccinated and what happens?
Now, eight residents have died, and 67 residents and 22 staff members caught COVID-19 sometime in the past month and a half. Nursing home officials said 48 residents and 21 staff members have recovered from the virus.
So what does the State Department of Health suggest?
“Family members of residents in long-term care facilities should also encourage their loved ones being cared for in these facilities to get a booster vaccine,” a spokesperson for the DPH said.
