Care home COVID vaccine roll-out ramps up

Latest figures show that 98% of Agincare’s care home residents have now received both doses of Covid vaccination, with the majority also vaccinated with a Covid booster and Flu jab.  We welcome the latest figures and are working daily with local authorities and NHS teams to ensure any remaining and new care home residents are vaccinated as soon as they are able.

Evidence clearly shows that the vaccination roll-out is effective, and has had a positive impact of reducing cases, outbreaks and risks in our care homes.

All our care home workers were double vaccinated at 11 November 2021 (or were exempt) as required by legislation at that time.  We continue to work in line with latest changes to government legislation and guidance; and still strongly encourage, recommend and support vaccination and boosters amongst our teams and new applicants.

When did care workers start receiving the COVID vaccine?

COVID vaccinations started in December 2020 with some of our care home teams being the first in Dorset to receive the vaccine.
