100% of Scotland’s care home residents have been fully vaccinated for some time now. NHS Lanarkshire completed the task in March 2021.
97.6% of staff have had the first vaccination and 94.4% have had the second dose.
Two doses do not of course confer full immunity so it is important that staff are also 100% vaccinated.
In England, the situation is less reassuring, despite the PM’s claims of a ‘world-beating’ rollout.
98.5% of residents have had both jags in English care homes for the elderly but only 78.4% of staff are fully vaccinated. This is a very disturbing figure.
