Local News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Coventry Meadows and Coventry Meadows Assisted Living, members of American Senior Communities (ASC), have begun administration of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The distribution is in partnership with CVS and their long-term care pharmacy, Omnicare, who bring their expertise in serving seniors. 

“We are thankful for all who worked to bring the vaccine safely to us.  The vaccine is being offered free of charge to all residents and staff in two doses, given 28 days apart. Our goal is to have 100% of our residents and staff vaccinated. We have aggressively provided education and counseling to ensure compliance,” the press release said.  

As part of ASC’s awareness campaign to achieve victory over COVID through vaccination, named “Gimme a V!,” ASC will launch a new series of commercials in January, the press release said. The series aims to educate the public by combatting the most common fears surrounding the vaccine.

The commercials are fronted by Quinn Buckner, NCAA & NBA Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, Civic leader, Sportscaster, the voice of the Indiana Pacers and American Senior Communities team member. To preview one of the commercials in the series, click here.

Coventry Meadows and Coventry Meadows Assisted Living said it will continue to be in close contact with local, state and federal health authorities, following their guidance, mandates and reporting requirements.

“The residents and families we serve are our highest priority, and while this vaccine brings new hope and heightened optimism in the fight against COVID-19, we will continue to provide high quality care with compassion to those entrusted to us with an overabundance of public health and infection control precautions,” the press release said.
