Team members and residents at a Cringleford 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 the Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group, the vast majority of residents and team members at Care UK’s Cavell Court, on Dragonfly Lane, were given the first dose of the vaccination.
One of the first in the queue for the vaccination was 92-year-old Sheila Coleman, who said: “I was thrilled when I found out we were getting the first vaccination. It’s one step closer to keeping us all safe.”
Karen Curle, Home Manager at Cavell Court, said: “We are so pleased that residents in our home have had the vaccination. I would like to offer my thanks to the NHS team at Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group. 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 have 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.
Cavell Court is a modern care home which provides full-time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short-term respite care. Designed to enable residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has its very own cinema and hairdressers, and there is plenty of space both indoors and out for relaxation and recreation.
