I am guessing this topic has come up and I did find something in November, but we are further along now.
My 90 yo mother lives in an independent living facility which is attached to an assisted living and memory care. She got her first COVID vaccine does yesterday, I think her IL facility got in on an early wave as it was part of the assisted living, I don't know. Nonetheless, I was happy as I had been calling her doctor and it seem parents of my friends who live on their own are not getting information on when they as octogerians can get it.
Anyway, my mom, a religious person herself said other religious residents are choosing not to get the vaccine. I in part respect their reasons, but would think when you enter a facility like that, you know you are giving up many of your rights and it should be required. I live in an HOA and there are many rules imposed on me that I would otherwise not like.
If you don't like it, you can find other living arrangements or maybe there are other senior facilities who cater to people like that.
As is, there is a very sweet lady living right across the hall from my mom who is very good to my mom, but she is deciding not get vaccine. I guess I am a bit concerned, as even though my mom got it, I think the more the better, especially in senior living.
If there is a thread on this you can refer me to it, otherwise, are vaccines required at many such facilities? I am for freedom of the individual, but if a private facility makes such requirements, you as a private individual are free not to live there.
