A NOTTINGHAMSHIRE care group has seen one of its care home managers become one of the first recipients of the COVID-19 vaccine in the region with a roll-out to the rest of its team now underway.
Rachel Williams is the care home manager at Church Farm Care’s Skylarks home in Nottinghamshire and received her COVID-19 vaccination on 10 December.
She said: “It’s great news that the vaccine is being introduced. We all need to do our part to protect the vulnerable in our society, so I see the vaccination as an essential part of doing this and continuing to ensure life is as fun and healthy as possible for people who live with us.”
Church Farm Care’s director Patrick Atkinson said: “It’s been an incredibly tough year for everyone working in the care sector, so the availability of the vaccine is welcome news. The wider team will be receiving the vaccination over the coming weeks – a huge step in helping to further protect our residents, colleagues and friends from the virus – and we hope it will allow us to welcome visitors back into our homes in 2021.”
