Well there certainly was at The Fells, Chester-le-Street, today!
Thanks to Dr Philip Le Dune, of Annfield Plain Surgery, & Rachel Berry, County Durham CCG pharmacist, over 25 residents were given their first COVID-19 vaccination.
After having their vaccination one resident remarked: “I was apprehensive at first, but given the support from the Fells staff I felt at ease and the doctors were great”.
Another added, “I feel so happy now and safe”.
“You could sense the relief and change in atmosphere after the vaccinations,” said one.
“The residents deserve great praise for how they have conducted themselves during lockdown and it was lovely to see the hope that these vaccinations bring.
“Dr Le Dune and Rachel were so supportive and explained the process to all of our residents. They took the time to make everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. We are very lucky and grateful, thank you.”
Staff and residents also praised Marion Rucker, housing manager, and Durham County Council for their support.
