Dear Families/Substitute Decision Makers of residents of White Rock Seniors Village
I am writing with wonderful news and a request that you respond immediately.
Your resident family member will have the opportunity to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in our care home in the near future. We are waiting for Fraser Health to provide the scheduled date and time.
Please note: to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, our care home will speak with your resident family member’s doctor or our facility medical director to determine if this vaccine is right for them. Your doctor or our facility medical director will call you/your resident family member if they determine this vaccine is NOT right for your resident family member.
This vaccine is given in two doses. We will contact you when we are ready to schedule the second dose of the vaccine.
Important reminder: Provincial Health Officer orders and guidelines remain in place for everyone, even if you have received the vaccine.
For more information about the COVID-19 vaccine, please read the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Healthfile
Thank you for all you do to help us care for our resident families and communities, and for supporting us to take this important next step.
Please contact Jessica at 604-541-4663 extension 115 if you have any questions.

If the above times do not work for you, we will do our best to accommodate however we would like you to also consider that there are many other recreation programs going on throughout the day and we want to ensure that every resident is included in some form of daily social activity. Additional appointments can be booked if time slots are available.
All designated visitors will be pre-screened when they book their appointment and again before entering the building. All on-site visitors must wear a mask at all times inside our building. We will provide you a new medical grade mask at the screening door.
