Team members and residents at a Frimley care home have been celebrating after receiving Covid-19 vaccinations for almost everyone living and working in the home.

With the support of Station Road Surgery, the vast majority of residents and team members at Care UK’s Whitebourne, on Burleigh Road, were given the first dose of the vaccination.

Covid-19 vaccinations rolled out at Frimley care homeOne of the first in the queue for the vaccination was 100-year-old Eleanor Wade, who said: “I have already had my flu jab but I am happy to have the new vaccination if it means protecting myself.”

Francis Bosompim, Home Manager at Whitebourne, 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 Station Road Surgery. 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.

Whitebourne has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides residential, respite and specialist dementia care, as well as end of life care.
