We are pleased to share that across our four Hudson Healthcare homes, more than 85% of all residents and staff have had at least their first dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine.
However, we recently held a vaccination information session and Q&A led by an independent medical expert, Dr Ellie Cannon, via video call to support the small number of staff who have expressed concerns or had questions about getting vaccinated.
Dr Ellie Cannon is the resident GP for the Mail on Sunday and Mail Online, acts as a medical commentator on Sky News and BBC Breakfast, and works as an NHS GP in north London. She has a particular interest in family health and was a volunteer in the Oxford vaccine trial in 2020, which led to the successful development of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. We would like to express our personal thanks to Dr Ellie Cannon for taking the time to speak to staff and enable those who have not yet taken the vaccine to make an informed decision about what is best for them.
