First COVID vaccinations for some of the Medplus Team
March 7, 2021
On Friday 5th March our practice manager got an unexpected call to say there were some vaccines not required by MIQ staff and would some of our nurses and doctors like to attend the Crown Plaza Hotel to get their first COVID vaccination.
At short notice, we managed to get 12 staff there, and they received their first of 2 doses of the Pfizer vaccine.
This was a fantastic opportunity for us, and we were delighted that some of our team have been given some protection ahead of the wider roll-out to primary care staff at the end of the month.
Other than the standard achy arm our team have had no ill effects and are looking forward to their second dose.
It will give us great reassurance to get the whole team vaccinated so that we can feel safe when dealing with our ill patients, and that we are also hopefully protecting our own families and friends.
