Dear Families and Friends of Tabor Village:
#SleeveUp To #FightFlu
The goal is simple: 100% of Tabor Village vaccinated.
We are well underway with flu vaccines Tabor Village wide and are looking forward to seeing a 100% compliance rate Village wide for all staff and residents. It is imperative that we all do our part to protect against the flu.
As staff, we have seen firsthand the detrimental effect the flu can have in our residences and on the many loved ones we care for. There is a substantial risk that Tabor Village carries if the flu were to make its way into our homes. Add this risk to the pandemic we continue to fight against and the risk of infection is greater and more intense than ever before.
The flu vaccine being provided for residents in BC Long-Term care homes is called Fluzone. It is an extra boost of immunization that is deemed more effective than the regular Influenza vaccination. Older persons as a population are more vulnerable to respiratory viruses such as Influenza. This vaccination is our best way to prevent contracting Influenza.
We have worked incredibly hard to ensure Tabor Village remains a COVID-FREE and infection-FREE zone and we refuse to give up now, but we need your help.
It is expected that all Essential and Social Visitors will have received their flu shots before entering any Tabor Village site. Help us keep your loved ones safe.
Mask up. Lather up. Roll that sleeve up and fight flu.
It is the goal of Tabor Village Leadership and the COVID-19 Outbreak Management Committee that we have a record number of vaccinated staff this year with a goal of 100% compliance, which includes all visitors.
