Despite the adverse weather conditions a staggering 1170 Covid vaccines were delivered at the Pewsey clinic this weekend by the Kennet and Avon Medical Partnership (KAMP). KAMP released the following statement today, January 25.
“Huge thanks to the KAMP staff, patients and wonderful volunteers who braved the snow at the weekend to attend the Covid-19 vaccine clinics. A fantastic community effort enabled the clinics to go ahead and a staggering 1170 vaccines were delivered to the over 75s and frontline health and social care staff.
Ann Hogg, Pewsey Councillor, co-ordinated dozens of volunteers to clear a safe path for patients through the snow and to help over all three days. Carol Parsons and the Pewsey Carnival provided gazebos to shelter waiting patients and delivered floodlights borrowed from Pewsey Football Club. The Little Lunchbox in Pewsey provided coffee and sandwiches to keep the volunteers warm. Patients and staff alike brought sandwiches, biscuits, cakes and chocolates to keep the staff going!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”
