Residents at Jewish Care homes receive the Covid-19 vaccine18 Jan 2021
More than 83% of Jewish Care residents have now been given their initial dose of the Pfizer vaccine as part of the national vaccination programme. The vaccines were delivered by external teams of trained healthcare professionals.
On receiving the vaccine, Evelyn White, 85, resident at Jewish Care’s Anita Dorfman House at Sandringham, said:
“The treatment and the care were perfect, and the vaccine is a right step in a right direction.”
Daniel Carmel-Brown, Chief Executive, Jewish Care, said:
“We are delighted to share that all of our care home residents and staff have now been offered the vaccine with 83% of residents across all homes having received their first dose, and more to follow in the coming days. As the vaccine begins to be rolled out in the wider community, we hope that our members, many of whom are also vulnerable, are able to be vaccinated soon too. This is a significant moment for us all in starting to find a way out of the pandemic.”
