Royal Star & Garter

Residents at Royal Star & Garter in Solihull received their COVID-19 booster jabs last month.

All 58 residents were given the Pfizer injection by healthcare professionals at the Tudor Coppice Home on Wednesday 29 September. They also received their flu vaccine jabs at the same time.

Forty-five members of staff also qualified to have their booster jab six months on from the last dose, with this figure expected to rise in the near future.

Home Manager Cheryl Harbourne said: “The residents are keen to protect themselves, and they were all pleased to have the booster jab. I’m delighted they’ve had it, and I’m proud so many staff received their boosters too. It’s another step forward in our fight against COVID.”

The Royal Star & Garter provides care to veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia.
