Like many on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19, we're celebrating the arrival of the life-saving vaccine, which our Chair Melanie Weatherley MBE is describing as the “beginning of the end” for the pandemic. 

However, we're also urging the social care sector to remember that the battle isn’t over just yet, and that care providers and their staff need to keep up with the amazing work they’ve been doing to ensure those they care for are safe. 

Melanie explained: “The vaccine is the light at the end of the tunnel, and we are delighted that some of Lincolnshire’s care home staff will be receiving their vaccination today. But for now, the virus is still a threat. 

“Whether in a care home or out in the community, the best way to keep your service users safe is to wear PPE, social distance and keep washing your hands.”
