NCH&C vaccinates housebound patients in Norfolk

NCH&C nurse being filmed

One of NCH&C’s Community Nurses, Laura Button, was accompanied by a film crew yesterday as she provide COVID-19 booster vaccinations to housebound patients in Norfolk.

NHS Norfolk & Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group is working with community nurses from Norfolk Community Health & Care to deliver the booster vaccination in vulnerable patients’ homes.

Receiving three doses of the COVID-19 vaccination is the best form of protection against all strains of the virus, including Omicron variant. Ensuring that vulnerable and housebound patients boost their immunity with a third dose of vaccine is a high priority for Norfolk and Waveney CCG.

Laura’s interview about the housebound vaccination service will be on both BBC Look East and ITV Anglia today (23 December 2021). Give it a watch to find out what it’s like working as a community nurse in Norfolk!
