Priority Access to COVID-19 Vaccines

Navion Senior Solutions has begun the successful rollout of COVID-19 vaccine clinics across each of our sixteen communities. As of January 18, 2021, we have administered the first of two vaccines to 80 percent of Navion residents and scheduled them for the essential second vaccine. We are also providing the vaccine to staff, family members, and partners as part of our commitment to the broader communities in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia.

Navion residents and employees are among the initial distribution groups outlined by the CDC. Specific vaccination delivery and allocation plans—including prioritization by care levels—are determined by each state.

Dear Navion Extended Family,

As you have undoubtedly heard, the Food and Drug Administration has granted Emergency Use Authorization for COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna. Let me assure you that we are actively preparing for our residents and associates to be among the first to receive the vaccines.

Distribution at Navion will consist of multiple vaccine clinics conducted onsite by our pharmacy partners Walgreens and CVS. Through those partnerships, we are providing immunizations to residents and employees free of charge.

While we understand that some people may be anxious about the vaccines, we encourage our residents and staff to get vaccinated—for their well-being and in the interests of everyone at Navion.

Stephen T. Morton

Chief Executive Officer

Attention North Carolina residents

With the recent announcement from North Carolina giving seniors age 65 and older priority in receiving COVID-19 vaccines, Navion is working with our partner pharmacies to offer vaccinations to non-resident seniors in our neighboring North Carolina communities.

Walgreens and CVS pharmacies will each conduct three immunization clinics at every Navion community.

Clinic 1:

Residents and employees receive the first dose.

Clinic 2:

We are working nonstop to pinpoint dates and plans for each location. Please check with your Navion community for the latest information.

Navion is providing COVID-19 vaccines free of charge through our partnerships with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies.
