BETHESDA, Md., Dec. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- National operator Meridian Senior Living has partnered with CVS, Walgreens, and local pharmacies to distribute and administer the COVID-19 vaccine to residents and employees. As part of the U.S. Government's Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program, residents and staff members at Meridian Senior Living communities will have access to the vaccine over the upcoming weeks in the first phase of distribution. Access to the COVID-19 vaccine will add one more preventative measure to Meridian Senior Living's commitment to the safety and well-being of its residents and employees.

Meridian Senior Living operates more than 70 communities across the country and co-manages 24 communities in China. Their U.S. communities remain open and are safer than ever for seniors who need or want their services.

"Our partnership with CVS, Walgreens and key pharmacies is a crucial preventative tool to include in our infection control protocols," says Kacy Kang, President and Chief Operating Officer of Meridian Senior Living.
