Covid vaccine starts to roll out to Radfield’s care workforce

Covid vaccine starts to roll out to Radfield’s care workforce

Radfield Home Care Wakefield and Dewsbury’s director, Jackie Gillen, was pleased to have her booking confirmed to receive a Covid-19 vaccination on Saturday 23rd January at Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield. As the UK’s national Covid immunisation programme continues to roll out, care professionals are beginning to receive their Covid jabs, providing great relief amongst those working within the health and social care sector.

For those professions that require close contact between people and the provision of care to the vulnerable, this is a truly momentous occasion, as they have often been the most exposed during the Covid crisis. New guidance issued by the UK Government’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has declared that the initial provision of the vaccine would also be offered to front line health and social care workers, including those who work in sectors such as domiciliary care and care homes.

Jackie describes what this means to Radfield and the wider health and adult social care sector:

“We are delighted that our front line care workforce and our clients are being invited to have the vaccine. We have a number of staff and care professionals who have received the vaccine or have appointments booked to receive it shortly. This is a huge step towards beating the coronavirus and hopefully for life to return to some kind of normality in the coming months.”

Whilst the covid vaccines are recognised as a massive step forward, it must be complemented by existing health and safety practices, all of which Radfield rigorously upholds. Staying up to date with the latest Covid-19 guidance provided by the Government and leading industry bodies Radfield Home Care remains strongly committed to the safety of its clients and care professionals and the provision of exceptional care.
