Second Doses Administered Today!
The second dose of the Moderna vaccine was administered at Forest Manor today, representing a big step forward in protecting our community from the coronavirus. The initial dose was given on January 8th. The vaccine offers important protection to the many patients in our facility who are at high risk of complications should they contract the virus.

Forest Manor continues to enforce its strict policies to minimize the spread of COVID-19. The rate of community spread has slowly decreased in St. Tammany Parish and we are witnessing similar decreases in the number of positive cases at Forest Manor.
We must all do our part to stop the spread! In addition to receiving the vaccine when it becomes available to the larger community, please also wear a face mask, wash your hands regularly and practice social distancing.
