Oxford Health Vax colleagues help give boosters to over 75s at home

The Oxford Health vaccination team has been busy in recent weeks helping to complete the national Spring COVID booster programme for the over-75s.

Small vaccination teams from the Trust have been travelling round the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire areas calling in on housebound people who have been unable to go to a local centre to get their jab. There are three teams working out of Aylesbury, Oxford and Reading Mass Vaccination Sites.

Since May they have vaccinated more than 420, including one person who is 107.

Gemma Laurie, Pharmacy Lead for COVID-19 Vaccination, said: “The people are housebound and many have not had visitors for a long time beyond their carers and district nurses. As well as getting vital protection against COVID-19 the patients also enjoy seeing some new faces.”

If you, or someone you know, is unable to get to their local site to get a COVID-19 vaccination please get in touch with your GP or call 119.
