The Spires care home

Residents and workers at The Spires are among the first batch of locals to receive the COVID-19 jabs.

General manager Amy Doyle said the vaccinations had “lifted spirits” after the challenges of the coronavirus crisis.

“Last year was a year like no other and the vaccine feels like the light at the end of the tunnel.

“Our teams have been magnificent in how they have risen to every challenge during this pandemic and we are proud to play our part in this next phase to ensure the most vulnerable are protected. 

“Myself and Helen, our deputy manager, received our first dose on 13th January, while our residents received the first dose of the Oxford vaccine on the 14th January when the teams from Langton and Westgate GP practices came to our home to see our residents.

“They aim to return next week to vaccinate all our staff which is great news.”

Deputy manager Helen Lunn added:

“I am so pleased to be given the vaccine.

“It will help to keep our residents safe, and is the first step in getting things back to normal and having a buzz of visitors in the home once again.”
