Covid-19 vaccinations rolled out at Shinfield care home

Home news

Team members and residents at a Shinfield 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.

Covid-19 vaccinations rolled out at Shinfield care homeWith the support of Shinfield Medical Centre, the vast majority of residents and team members at Care UK’s Parsons Grange, on Westall Street, were given the first dose of the vaccination.

One of the first in the queue for the vaccination was 75 year old Phyllis, who said: ‘’Well I feel just great and didn’t feel a thing! This is an exciting time for everyone and moment to remember’’. 

Shelby Ratcliffe, Customer Relations Manager at Parsons 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 Shinfield Medical Centre. They were incredibly efficient, friendly, and made sure everything went smoothly, which was much appreciatedCovid-19 vaccinations rolled out at Shinfield care home.  

“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.

Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, Parsons Grange care home incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities. The layout of the building has been configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help encourage the creation of close-knit communities.
