Staff and residents at a Suffolk care home have told of their delight at receiving the Covid vaccine.
The reality of being given the vaccine has lifted staff and residents' spirits after a year that has proved challenging.
Alice Grange Care Home at Kesgrave is run by Barchester Healthcare and is one of the first homes to receive the vaccine.
General manager Andrea Crowley said: "My team have been magnificent in how they have risen to every challenge during this pandemic and we are proud to play our part in this next essential phase to ensure the most vulnerable are protected.”
One resident, Margaret, 81, said: “It was organised very well and I am glad to see everyone getting it at once.”
