Delivering exceptional healthcare to the community
Our entire team has worked tirelessly since receiving our first limited supply of Astra Zeneca on 23rd March to begin vaccinating the community against COVID-19. We introduced Pfizer clinics on 15th September when the Pfizer vaccine program was rolled out to GP clinics. In this time, we have administered over 5300 COVID-19 vaccines. On top of this we have seen an additional 46,640 patients between our 2 clinic locations, nursing homes and urgent care.
This is an incredible achievement and we thank the whole team for their dedication and can-do attitudes that have made it possible to play our part in keeping the community safe.
