UPDATE: In the original version of this story, the BCCDC that said there were nine Logan Manor residents, and seven received their COVID-19 vaccine. Fraser Health has since responded to the Observer to clarify that information.
There are 37 long-term care beds at Glenwood Seniors Community and 32 assisted living beds at Logan Manor, which shares a building with Glenwood. Of those assisted living beds, 10 are subsidized and 22 are private.
The Feb. 15 report from the BCCDC showed that 55 people across Glenwood and Logan Manor had received their first vaccine dose. As of March 3, 36 people in those two facilities have received their second vaccination. Fraser Health is following up with those people who did not receive their second dose during this clinic.
More than 90 per cent of Agassiz’s seniors living in long-term care have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
According to the most recent statistics from the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), 92 per cent of all seniors living in long-term care in the Fraser Health region have received the first dose as of Feb. 15.
In Agassiz Seniors Community, 58 of the 63 residents have been inoculated, or 92 per cent. In both Glenwood Seniors Community and Logan Manor, a long-term care home and assisted living facility that share a building, 55 of the 59 residents received their first COVID-19 shot, or 93 per cent.
In mid-January, Fraser Health that all of its long-term care homes would have received the vaccine by Jan. 15. At that point, Agassiz Seniors Community had weathered two outbreaks of COVID-19 and saw six residents infected with the virus.
Following that first vaccination clinic, Glenwood Seniors Community faced its own outbreak, but had no residents test positive for COVID-19.
The percentage of vaccinated seniors in assisted living is much higher — 97 per cent in the Fraser Health region.
The total number of residents provided by the BCCDC data for both long-term care and assisted living excludes those who recently had COVID-19 or are symptomatic.
Residents may not have received their first dose of the vaccine because they declined the shot, they were not on site during the facility’s vaccination clinic, or they were unable to get the vaccine for medical reasons.
