The Department of Social Development is committed to ensuring the safety of residents and workers in New Brunswick long-term care facilities (which includes licensed nursing homes and adult residential facilities).
We are working with all our partners to ensure that all staff in long-term care facilities receive their vaccine in order to provide a safe environment for all, most importantly for the most vulnerable seniors.
Vaccines can help reduce the spread of the virus and the severity of outbreaks.
Caring for seniors is a priority for all of us. That’s why we are encouraging long-term care facilities to take action now to improve vaccination rates.
The information below aims to allow New Brunswickers to be well informed on the status of long-term care facility vaccination rates, in our province.
