COVID-19 Vaccinations

 
Benchmark believes the COVID-19 vaccination is the best opportunity for our residents and associates to protect themselves, their families, and each other from COVID-19. 

Benchmark is collaborating with CVS Health on vaccination clinics in all of our communities. Clinics started in December and the majority of our communities have received clinic dates for the first phase of vaccinations for skilled nursing and assisted living residents. We appreciate the understanding and assistance of our residents, families and associates as we work together to make this a successful initiative and, ultimately, stop the spread of COVID-19.
