COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Homebound Community Members
York Hospital is not directly involved with vaccinating our community members unable to leave their homes. However, York Community Service Association (YCSA) is collaborating with Southern Maine Agency on Aging (SMAA) and Northern Light Home Care and Hospice to offer this service. If you are physically unable to leave your home, please call Michelle Surdoval at YCSA at 207-363-5504 and press OPTION 5. If Michelle doesn’t answer, please leave your name, address, phone number, date of birth and a brief message indicating that you are unable to leave your home for a vaccine. Michelle will share the information with SMAA and Northern Light who will be in touch directly to arrange a home visit for a vaccine when it is possible to do so. For more information, please contact Michelle Surdoval or visit www.ycsame.org.
HOW TO SIGN UP FOR THE VACCINE IF YOU HAVE OR ARE RECOVERING FROM COVID-19
PLEASE NOTE: If you currently have or are recovering from COVID-19, you must wait to receive the vaccine until after you’ve finished your full isolation period, which the CDC defines as follows:
- 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
- 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
- Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving. NOTE: Some symptoms, including loss of sense of smell/taste, can persist for weeks. Therefore, as long as certain symptoms, including respiratory symptoms, are improving, isolation can be considered completed if all other criteria are met. Please visit the U.S. CDC website for complete details: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/end-home-isolation.html
