Booster vaccines for Covid-19

Our care homes and housing schemes are getting ready to receive booster vaccines for Covid-19

Those aged over 50 and frontline care workers are now eligible for booster vaccines under plans set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

As the roll-out begins, our homes and schemes are getting ready by ensuring consent forms are signed. Some of our homes and schemes have already had their boosters while others are still waiting.

Some of our staff are going independently to their GP or local pharmacy while others are having their injection at the home when they are visited.

Vic Stone, Operations Manager and Coronavirus Lead, said, “We welcome the booster vaccines across our homes and schemes and are putting everything in place to ensure every ‘family member’ who wants a booster receives it as quickly as possible.”
