COVID-19 Prevention

The top priority at Optalis Healthcare is the health and well-being of our patients, residents, and employees. Therefore, we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure our centers remain guarded against spreading viral infections. We are in close communication with state and federal officials to ensure we are taking appropriate actions.

We understand that we care for our country’s most vulnerable population and are committed to ensuring their health, safety, and comfort. Every member of our center’s teams is dedicated to this mission, diligently operating with our residents’ best interests at heart.

COVID-19 Vaccine + Boosters

The COVID-19 vaccine requires one or two shots depending on which brand is administered and cannot cause COVID disease. Common side effects may include a sore arm at the injection site, chills, muscle pains, headache, and a low-grade fever. All have only lasted for a brief time. For an individual to be considered fully vaccinated, one must complete the one- or two-shot process and be two weeks passed their final shot.

Booster shots are available for each vaccine provider.

We encourage you to learn more about the vaccine from your state health department or through the CDC’s website.
