Trezevant’s Allen Morgan Health and Rehabilitation Center First Nursing Facility in West Tennessee to Get COVID-19 Vaccine
Trezevant’s Allen Morgan Health and Rehabilitation Center was the first nursing facility in Memphis and in all of West Tennessee to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. On Monday, December 28, the senior living facility administered vaccines to frontline staff, healthcare workers and nursing home residents. In all, approximately 160 vaccines were administered to residents and staff.
The first person to receive a vaccine at Allen Morgan Health and Rehabilitation Center at Trezevant was Mr. Spencer Wooten who has been a resident at Trezevant since 2012. Mr. Wooten has been socially distanced from his family since March and is hopeful that the vaccine may be a first step back to visiting with them in the coming months.
Trezevant’s Director of Health Operations, Paul Martin, is also relieved at the vaccine’s arrival.
"We are thrilled to begin giving the vaccine to our residents and staff," says Martin, who is also a member of Tennessee Governor Bill Lee’s Long-Term Care COVID-19 Task Force. “We will continue to remain vigilant and take all safety precautions to help mitigate the spread of the virus. The health and well-being of our residents and staff is our top priority.”

Throughout the current coronavirus pandemic, Trezevant has worked in cooperation and compliance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the Memphis & Shelby County Health Department, all in an effort to help keep residents and employees healthy and safe.
