VACCINE INFORMATION

Get The Facts

Serving the most vulnerable in our society during a global pandemic is very important and challenging work. Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS) has announced we are moving towards mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for all continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) and ERS support services staff effective, September 25th, 2021. Staff working in the Affordable Living by ERS communities will need to be vaccinated by the beginning of 2022.  You can read the announcement to staff by clicking here.

The following page offers information about the vaccine, resources to learn more about COVID-19 and its spread, common myths, and testimonials from our own staff on why they chose to get vaccinated.
