Good News for Care Home Residents
We have received our first small batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine. This will allow our roving team to start vaccinating our patients in care homes.
Our frailty team, together with community colleagues from Dorset Healthcare NHS Trust will be planning the roll out. Alongside this, we expect to receive a weekly delivery of the Pfizer vaccine.
With the AstraZeneca vaccine being easier to administer than the Pfizer vaccine and as the vaccine supply becomes regular we look forward to ramping up the delivery to our patients, both in care homes and in the community.
We are pleased to report last Wednesday’s (6th January) 12 hour vaccination clinic went really well, with no queues. Whilst we cannot promise there will not be challenging times ahead, we really will try our best to minimise issues and where we can, to learn as we go to keep improving.
