All of Camden’s care home residents offered second vaccine dose

All residents living in Camden’s care homes and extra care services for older people have now been offered both doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

As part of Camden’s vaccination programme, all people living in care homes and extra care schemes for older adults have been given the chance to have both doses of the life-saving vaccine.

Vaccination teams have been working hard to visit care homes and extra care schemes across the borough and administer jabs to residents, who were in the top priority group and among those most at risk of becoming seriously unwell or dying from the virus.

It’s really great news that all of Camden’s older residents living in our care homes and extra care services have been offered both doses of the vaccine, giving them the best possible protection against coronavirus.  

The hard work and commitment of our frontline care staff throughout this pandemic has enabled us reach this milestone and gets us closer to protecting all our most clinically vulnerable residents in the borough from this virus. Many thanks to all of our frontline staff who have made this possible.
Councillor Pat Callaghan, Cabinet Member for a Healthy and Caring Camden
It’s a huge relief to know that the clinically vulnerable people we work with are being kept safe through the vaccinations of both the staff and residents. The past year has been extremely demanding and worrying for our staff, residents and their families, however my mind is at rest knowing that we’re all working together in partnership to make the care homes, the borough, the country and the world at large a better and safer place.
Edith Mansfield, Manager at Rathmore House Care Home
