ISL president, CEO share a message about the importance of getting COVID-19 vaccine

For this month’s blog, we want to put an emphasis on the importance of getting vaccinated against COVID-19. Check out this video of Sue Farrow, Integral Senior Living’s founder and owner, and Collette Gray, ISL’s president and CEO, talking about their vaccination experience. Or simply read through the transcript below!


Sue: Hi, I’m Sue Farrow, and I’m the founder and owner of Integral Senior Living and Solstice Senior Living. 

Collette: And I’m Collette Gray. I’m the president and CEO of Integral Senior Living and Solstice Senior Living. 

Sue: This coronavirus has so drastically changed the way we work, the way we communicate and the way we engage with each other. 

Collette: We’re so thankful that you have been a part of this journey with us and have remained positive advocates for change during this entire pandemic. 

Sue: We are so excited to see the light at the end of this very long, very dark tunnel. And we’re here today in Marin to, well, we already have, we’ve gotten our first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Collette: So along with the WindChime of Marin family, we’re here today to tell you a little bit about our stories. I am 50 years old, I have a compromised immune system as I have multiple sclerosis, and I chose to get vaccinated after speaking with my neurologist and understanding that it is much better to be vaccinated than to get COVID. 

Sue: And because of my advanced age, I’m also in a high-risk category. And so, we really, today, wanted to relay to you how incredibly safe and easy it is to get this vaccination. 

Collette: We ask all of you to take the opportunity to get vaccinated at the first available opportunity you have in your community. 

Sue: And again, we are so thankful and eternally grateful to all of you who have been working tirelessly to get us to this point, and we humbly ask you to join us in this next, very important step, so that we can continue to keep our residents and fellow associates safe. Thank you.
