“I was eager to get the COVID vaccine and help protect myself, my
family, my friends and all those around me. I appreciate how Christian
Health extended this vaccine opportunity to staff families. The process
was simple and smooth, and everyone was so helpful and kind. I feel better
knowing I'm vaccinated. Thank you Christian Health!” --Joe K., Ridgewood, NJ
Christian Health is dedicated to protecting residents, patients, staff, and families through COVID-19 vaccinations. Since January 2021, Christian Health has successfully hosted 21 onsite COVID vaccine clinics on its campuses in Wyckoff and Wayne in close partnership with Walgreens, CVS, and Pharmscript. Nearly 100% of all residents at Christian Health have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Close to 80% of staff have been vaccinated. We are committed in our ongoing efforts to help vaccinate as many people as possible at Christian Health and in our community.
Christian Health’s medical staff have carefully evaluated all recommendations related to vaccination against COVID-19. Our physician leaders are confident in the COVID-19 vaccines currently available and encourage all those who are able to receive it to help keep our community safe and healthy. We encourage and support this vaccine as a critical step towards health and protection against COVID-19.
We are excited to have the COVID-19 vaccine in our tool kit, but we remain steadfast in our commitment to safety by wearing masks and social distancing, and our already established infection control and prevention measures to help ensure the health and protection of everyone in our community.

Christian Health continues to support our acute-care partners to meet the community’s health-care needs. Heritage Manor is accepting limited admissions from local acute-care hospitals. These new patients come to us for care in order to complete their recovery following hospitalization. They are tested before admission, upon arrival, and move into an established unit used to cohort new admissions.
Among the hundreds of employees across our long-term/post-acute care, and assisted living communities, there are currently no Christian Health team members who are COVID-19 positive.
We are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of infection and safeguard everyone on our campuses. Christian Health continues to be in full compliance with state-mandated regular testing of employees. We value transparency and will continue to update this page, communicate directly to family members, and make ourselves available to answer questions.
