One of our trustees administered the jabs as a volunteer vaccinator
We’re delighted to report that all our residents have now had their second Coronavirus jabs. Twelve weeks after the first dose, Fairfield residents were given a second dose of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine on 31 March.
The second vaccinations were administered at Fairfield by our local GP, Dr John Monach, assisted by one of our trustees! Sally Hope is a retired GP who sits on the board of trustees for Fairfield and we were all pleased that Sally was one of the volunteer vaccinators.
Sally was a regular visitor to Fairfield prior to Covid-19, and the residents were immediately put at ease to have a familiar person giving them their second jab.
Sally said, “It was a wonderful experience to be able to give the residents their vaccinations. There was an air of mutual support and celebration in the room. The Oxford vaccine will help protect them against the virus. All the residents are keen for everything to return to normal, especially being able to see more of their friends and families as lockdown eases. It was a real joy for me to be back in Fairfield to see everyone. I think the residents and staff have coped magnificently over the last year. There was such a feeling of energy and cheer there today.”
Staff at Fairfield continue to follow Government guidelines for the roadmap out of lockdown, their first priority being the health and safety of the residents.
