Care Assistants At Bluebird Care Bristol Receive COVID-19 Vaccine
Care Assistants at Bluebird Care Bristol have begun to receive their COVID-19 vaccines as the specialist live-in care provider continues to prioritise the safety of their customers and team members.
18 team members have now been vaccinated against the virus, with the remaining employees set to receive their jabs in the coming days.
Bluebird Care Bristol say they have never been more focused on protecting customers from COVID-19 and are actively encouraging and promoting the uptake of the vaccine amongst all of their team members.
Caroline, a Bluebird Care Bristol care worker has described her experience of receiving the vaccine:
“I've already had my first dose of the jab, and I'm now booked in for my second dose next month. I caught COVID-19 with my previous job last May and suffered almost every symptom, some of which I am still suffering with now. To anyone like me who hated needles, the staff are so reassuring, and it was quick and painless.”
Speaking of the successful uptake of the vaccine, Tim Rowland-Jones, Managing Director of Bluebird Care Bristol, said:
“It’s important that we offer our complete support to everyone within our wonderful care team and this support extends to when they receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Our job is to protect our customers physical and mental wellbeing and we’re now doing the same for our staff too. The majority of our team have now had their first vaccinations and we’re immensely proud of them.”
The home care provider is also actively recruiting new team members and are encouraging all those who are interested in a career in care to find out more information at www.bluebirdcarecareers.co.uk/locations/bristol/current-vacancies or by calling 0117 463 0189.
