Care home COVID vaccine roll-out ramps up

Latest figures show that 97% of Agincare’s care home residents have now received both doses of Covid vaccination. We welcome the latest figures and are working daily with local authorities and NHS teams to ensure remaining and new care home residents are vaccinated as soon as they are able.

From 11 November 2021 only people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (or are exempt) can enter a care home. This includes our care team workers.   This does not apply to family and friends of care home residents or essential carers, people visiting residents who are at end of life, and people providing bereavement support. Others may visit in certain circumstances, such as members of the emergency services.  Any tradespeople and professionals coming into our homes will require proof of vaccination and this will be checked before they are allowed to enter; this includes district nurses, chiropodists,  painters, plumbers, electricians, hair dressers and others.

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.
