Larry Leedy arrived at Carter Nursing & Rehabilitation Center with a new amputation of his right leg. He was independent prior to coming to Carter.

He has worked very hard with therapy to regain his independence. He has overcome so many multiple medical complications prior to admission at carter.

After he recovered, he was able to regain his strength by sitting up on the edge of the bed without support.

Our therapy team worked with Larry to build on that success. Now after working with therapy he is:

  • Walking with a walker
  • Gaining more endurance, strength every day
  • Preparing to soon return home with supportive services

We admire his perseverance and are grateful to be part of his journey!

COVID-19 Vaccine Q & A: Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?

January 30, 2021

No. None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines or COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.

There are several different types of vaccines in development. All of them teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms, such as fever. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19. Learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work.

It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity (protection against the virus that causes COVID-19) after vaccination. That means it’s possible a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and still get sick. This is because the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection.
