Oaklands is pleased to be fully vaccinated

Posted on 14 April 2021

We are delighted to announce that both the residents and team at Oaklands have now had their 2nd COVID-19 vaccine.

This is a time in history to be celebrated as we continue on our road back to normality.

When the vaccine was first offered, we were expecting some hesitation as it was new to the market, and little was known of the side effects. However, we were overwhelmed by the take-up and that everyone was on board.

One member of the team said: “If it will help protect my health, the health of our residents, colleagues, loved ones and relatives, then there is no question about having the jab.”

With these core values, attitudes, and commitment, we have moved forward with our new visiting changes which now permit indoor visits.

Current provisions such as PPE, infection control and testing protocols will remain, however, we are raring to move forward and enjoy the company of our visitors, guest performers and the sunshine (when it arrives).

We would like to thank the staff at our local vaccination centres and Forestside Medical Practice for their help working with us to achieve this milestone.
