Published on Dec 30, 2020

AMFM Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers (AMFM) have distributed 2,138 doses of the Pfizer vaccine among its 19 locations and is currently planning vaccination clinics to begin early next week. The January clinic will provide the second dose to all patients and employees who took the first dose, as well as offer the vaccine to those who did not receive the vaccine in mid-December. 

The vaccine will not reach its immunity potential until 1 week after a second dose has been administered. The second dose should be given 21 days after the initial dose.

“We are thrilled to have held vaccination clinics at all of our locations and provided the option for all patients and employees to take the vaccine,” said AMFM President Todd Jones. “Our centers were the first in the nation to begin vaccinating patients and employees, while many long-term care and assisted living centers are just now beginning in other states to hold their first dose vaccination clinics.

“Even after vaccines are administered, we will all continue to follow the CDC’s guidelines by wearing face masks, social distancing and practicing good hand hygiene.”  

Shep Campbell, licensed pharmacist and Vice President of Pharmacy Services for Lifetree Pharmacy (pharmacy provider for AMFM), took the helm of the rollout of the vaccine and has been a leader in ensuring that not only were AMFM centers vaccinated, but other long-term care and assisted living centers throughout West Virginia. Since December 15th, Lifetree Pharmacy administered more than 6,100 vaccines across 67 long-term care and assisted living centers, including the 19 AMFM centers. Lifetree Pharmacy was honored to serve and help protect our Veterans across two West Virginia locations by administering the vaccine.
