Pulborough care home pays tribute to ‘wonderful’ medical staff as residents are vaccinated

A Pulborough care home has said it is grateful to a ‘wonderful’ medical team after residents and staff were vaccinated against coronavirus.

The Anchorage care home in Pulborough said it had been ‘extremely fortunate’ to be one of the first care homes in West Sussex to be given the Covid Virus Pfizer vaccine.

A spokesman said: “Initially this vaccine was not suitable to be transferred between sites and was supplied to the Pulborough Medical Group in a 975-dose pack, which could not be administered outside the medical practice.

“However, Pfizer developed a 75-dose pack specifically for use in care and nursing homes which can be transferred safely.”

Carol Galpin, manager of The Anchorage care home, added: “We are all grateful to the wonderful medical team at the Pulborough Medical Group who look after us tirelessly from the Doctors and Practice nurses to the administration team.”
