Care home staff and residents received their first round covid-19 vaccine just after Christmas.
Wilsmere House residents were treated with a “Christmas gift” of Covid vaccines after the visit from Enderley Road Medical Centre in Harrow Weald on 29th December 2020.
Dr. Kunal Bhayani who led the vaccinations said he believed Wilsmere House was one of the first care home in Harrow Weald to have vaccinated residents.
“After such an awful year we are glad to help bring some hope for a brighter 2021” said Dr. Bhayani.
The team from the surgery were treated with small gifts from the General Manager Lili Cocue to show their appreciation.
The second round of vaccination will be issued at a later date.
