Avery Begins Covid-19 Vaccine Rollout for Staff and Residents

Avery Healthcare has begun it’s Covid-19 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine rollout this week, with many more expected to be vaccinated within the coming weeks. The rollout of the vaccine nationally will take many months to achieve, but staff in social care and our residents are at the forefront for being invited to have the COVID -19 vaccine locally.

There are undoubtedly exciting times ahead, with the development of other vaccines too. Our staff and residents are already being invited to take part in the vaccination programme. It may be a few months to see the total impact of the vaccine uptake, but everyone is excited and looking forward to returning to a life where social interaction and hugging our loved ones can become normal to us all again.

Julie Spencer, Avery’s Care and Quality Director, said, “This news is very welcome, and we sincerely hope that this is the first step to us all returning to a normal way of living. 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, and we, like many others, are delighted with the news that following trials and MHRA approval, a COVID-19 vaccine has been made available.”

Kayfa Abdullahi, a care worker at Milton Court Care Home, in Milton Keynes, is the first member of staff at the home to receive the vaccine. Kayfa attended Milton Keynes University Hospital to receive the treatment. She said it went well and was just a “simple scratch”. Kayfa was the first of 80 staff members in total at Milton Court to be vaccinated within the next four days.
