Today, the first COVID-19 Moderna vaccines were administered to long-term care home residents in the Rainy River district. Noreen Robertson, a 88-year-old resident of Rainycrest Long Term Care Home in Fort Frances, was the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the West Wing, and 94-year-old, Delsie Cumming, was the first recipient to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the East Wing. As part of Phase One of Ontario’s three-phase vaccine implementation plan Riverside’s LTC residents at Rainycrest who have completed consents began receiving vaccines this morning. Residents at Emo Health Centre and Rainy River Health Centre will be receiving vaccines tomorrow, Thursday, January 28, 2021. Riverside received a limited number of vaccines, meaning that not all residents will receive their vaccine at this time. We anticipate the next vaccine shipment for residents will arrive next week. We look forward to initiating vaccination of our long-term care staff shortly after.
