Shoreham Residential Program Receives Vaccine

Feeling the love at Shoreham! On Thursday, Citizens’ Shoreham team made important health outcomes happen – 30 people supported and 21 staff received the Covid-19 vaccination. People with disabilities are disproportionately more vulnerable to the virus. “Getting the vaccine is so important,” shared Jean Marie Smith, Director of Nursing at Shoreham. It also can pose a unique set of challenges.  “Getting ready and travelling with the people we support requires a professional team, and even so it was an all-day affair,” shared Program Director, Mary Gilleran. The Citizens team came prepared. Senior Director Karen Tanzillo was at the vaccination site to ensure that any issue that might prevent a person from receiving the shot could be immediately addressed.  “Every person who had an appointment today, was here on time and was able to receive their shot. I am so proud of this team.”
