A message from Copperfield Hill’s Founder, Darrel Farr

Anticipation for the coming vaccine

Good Day,

COVID-19 and it’s disruption to our lives, I’m 82, is coming to an end shortly. It’s called “the vaccine” and the scientific opinions are that it is safe and will be available to folks like us in congregate communities on a priority basis, possibly as early as the end of this month

I urge you to plan for this event with joy rather than trepidation or concern over the vaccine’s safety or effectiveness.

People our age all remember polio back in the 40s and 50s. Everyone was “scared to death”. Our parents worried about us daily. Then came the Salk vaccine. Unbelievable. We were vaccinated and polio disappeared. It changed our lives, just as earlier vaccines had changed the lives of our parents and grandparents, vaccines for smallpox, measles, diphtheria, tetanus and more.

This vaccine will change the world and because of residency in a high priority community we will be fortunate enough to receive the vaccine sooner than most. I expect that this will bring back normalcy to our lives.

As the founder of Copperfield Hill and the Cedars of Austin and a proud member of our generation, I will be on hand when the providers come to administer the vaccine at Copperfield Hill and be the first to be vaccinated. I will be at the Cedars of Austin to show my support of the vaccine’s safety. I have full faith and confidence in the sciences and doctors who have developed this life saving vaccine and want to demonstrate my commitment to you that it is safe and life giving for all the residents of Copperfield Hill and the Cedars of Austin. You have shown your faith in our staff and our community by choosing to let us provide for your safety, comfort, wellness and well-being.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for supporting our communities through the difficulties we all encountered in 2020.

Darrel A. Farr
