Over 60 residents will receive the Covid-19 vaccine at Brunelcare’s Deerhurst Care Homeon Christmas Eve.
Staff were amongst the first in the world to receive the vaccine when launched earlier this month, allowing the Bristol care home to be selected for England’s first resident vaccinations.
Oona Goldsworthy, CEO, said: “ This is a milestone day for our residents and for Brunelcare.
Just two weeks after our staff received the vaccine, we can start to see some hope to end the year.”
Care Home Manager, Lesley Hobbs, said: ” I just feel really relieved that we can now protect the residents further – all the families have been really supportive & pleased that we have been able to make this happen .”
Oona ends “ It’s been an extremely difficult year for everyone and we are enormously grateful to our GP Dr Kerfoot & Kingswood Health Centre for coming into Deerhurst to deliver the vaccine.”
