COVID Vaccination update

Care home residents and staff GP-led vaccination sites worked tirelessly over the weekend to vaccinate care home residents and staff who were yet to receive a vaccine. With 172 care homes across the county, this was no mean feat. Where able, all care home residents and staff were offered a vaccination. Exceptions were only made where, for example, a resident or staff member had returned a positive COVID-19 test. Where required, return visits will be made to ensure all residents and staff have been offered a vaccination.

The vital role of volunteers More than 1,400 volunteers have come forward to support Cheshire’s COVID-19 vaccination programme so far. Fulfilling a wide range of roles, including car park marshalls, shift managers and welcome and exit team members, volunteers are playing a crucial role in the drive to protect Cheshire’s most vulnerable residents from COVID-19. Three of Cheshire’s army of volunteers have shared their experiences so far. More here.
