Residents at The Rowans care home in Macclesfield are delighted to have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
The vaccinations were administered by Dr Charlotte Vohra and Dr Imran Ahmed from High Street Surgery at the home in a Covid-secure environment.
Home Manager Katherine Turner said: “This is a wonderful day for our residents and their families, and we are truly grateful to everyone who made this possible.
“It has been a difficult time, and we still have some way to go, but we’ve been celebrating this wonderful milestone today because it means that at last, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank my amazing colleagues, our wonderful residents and their family and friends who have supported us throughout the pandemic. We are really looking forward to the day when once again we are able to relax the restrictions on visiting and finally the day when all restrictions can be removed – that will be the day we have a big party!
Mrs Eva Lindars, a resident at The Rowans, said: “I am so grateful that I have been given the vaccine. Everyone at The Rowans has been fantastic all through the pandemic. I know how hard they have worked and appreciate that it can’t have been easy, so I’d like to say a heartfelt thanks.”
Dr Charlotte Vohra said: “I was thrilled to finally be able to administer the first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to both residents and staff at The Rowans Care Centre. We’ve all got a long road ahead of us but the vaccine roll out is definitely a step in the right direction.”
