Covid-19 vaccinations rolled out at Witney care home

Home news

Team members and residents at a Witney care home have been celebrating after they became one of the first homes in the area to receive Covid-19 vaccinations for almost everyone living and working in the home.

With the support of Windrush Medical Practice, the vast majority of residents and team members at Care UK’s Millers Grange, on Curbridge Road, were given the first dose of the vaccination. The home also provided additional space for the practice’s team to receive theirs as well.

Covid-19 vaccinations rolled out at Witney care homeOne of the first in the queue for the vaccination was 88-year-old Mavis Martin, who said the vaccine didn’t hurt at all.

Alison Parry, Home Manager at Millers Grange, said: “We were so pleased that residents in our home have had the vaccination. I would like to offer my thanks to the NHS team at Windrush Medical Practice. They were incredibly efficient, friendly, and made sure everything went smoothly, which was much appreciated.  

“This is the first step towards getting back to normal, and we couldn’t asked for a better way to kick off the year. We’re looking forward to receiving our second dose of the vaccine as soon as we’re able.”

Care UK is keen to stress that the vaccine doesn’t provide full protection against the virus so its teams will continue to follow their stringent infection control measures including regular deep cleaning, regular testing, the use of masks and other PPE, social distancing, air purifiers and temperature checks to keep everyone safe.

Millers Grange has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full-time residential dementia and respite care.
