Meridian Communities to Receive First Access to Vaccine

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. “This is an extension of our ongoing commitment to keep our communities as safe as possible, while reducing the risk of concerns that arise from long intervals of isolation, both with our residents and seniors in the towns and cities in which we operate.”

“We are thrilled for our residents and employees to have access to the COVID-19 vaccine in the first tier group,” says Kevin Carlin, Principal and Chief Sales Officer of Meridian Senior Living. “We look forward to seeing the expressions of relief on the faces of the residents and staff as the vaccinations are administered.”

Meridian Senior Living communities are committed to offering older adults a daily dose of socialization along with a greater sense of security and safety. To find a community near you, visit
