The residents of a care home in Droitwich are delighted to have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Ravenstone Care Home was among the first in Herefordshire and Worcestershire to receive the vaccine on-site. The vaccinations were administered by the Droitwich Integrated Care Team at the home in a Covid-secure environment.
Ravenstone resident Betty Powell was told by the vaccination team that she was one of the first residents to be vaccinated in their own care home in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Betty said: “I am so grateful that I have been given the vaccine. Everyone at Ravenstone has been fantastic all through the pandemic. I know how hard they have worked and appreciate that it can’t have been easy. So I’d like to say a heartfelt thanks.”
A Wonderful Day for the Ravenstone Residents
Home Manager Wendy Stokoe said: “This is a wonderful day for our residents and their families. We are truly grateful to everyone who made this possible. It has been a difficult time, and we still have some way to go, but we’ve been celebrating this wonderful milestone today because it means that at last, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank my amazing colleagues, our wonderful residents and their family and friends who have supported us throughout the pandemic. We are really looking forward to the day when once again we are able to relax the restrictions on visiting and finally the day when all restrictions can be removed – that will be the day we have a big party!”
The staff and residents at the home are now awaiting the date for their second vaccination.
