Family vaccine clinics to be offered by Stonerise Care Centers
CHARLESTON — Stonerise has announced COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be offered at all 17 of its care centers later this month for family and close loved ones of patients and team members.
Following West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s announcement that nursing homes and long-term care facilities can begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to family members, caregivers and regular visitors of patients and employees, Stonerise activated a plan to make vaccines available at its centers throughout West Virginia, the company said.
Stonerise operates the former Eagle Pointe in Parkersburg.
Clinics will be offered from 1-3 p.m. April 21 and May 5. Pre-scheduled appointments are necessary, and individuals must be 18 and older.
“We are proud to continue the work we started in mid-December of administering the COVID-19 vaccine to as many eligible individuals as possible,” Stonerise Chief Executive Officer Larry Pack said. “We are honored to be able to now offer the vaccine to those closest to our patients and team members to make visiting safer, with an ultimate goal of ending this pandemic.”
Interested individuals should call their local center directly to discuss scheduling a vaccine appointment. All appointments must be made no later than April 9 to receive a first-dose vaccination on April 21 or by no later than April 23 to receive a first-dose vaccination on May 5.
