Covid-19 vaccinations are continuing at Henhayes Centre with groups of volunteers, co-ordinated by Crewkerne District Rotary, ready to meet and greet those arriving for their vaccination appointment. A spokesperson for Crewkerne District Rotary said: “Our first group of volunteers received a briefing at the start of yesterday’s vaccinations at the Henhayes Centre. We are proud to support the NHS in this mammoth task. All praise to Crewkerne Health Centre, NHS and the support team from SSDC.”
Councillor Mike Best confirmed at Monday’s town council meeting that Henhayes Centre has been officially designated as the vaccination hub in Crewkerne and leased for six months, to enable the continued roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccinations. Henhayes car park will remain closed to the general public, while the community centre is being utilised as a vaccination hub.
Crewkerne Health Centre are aware that some older members of the community, particularly those who are 80 years and over, may have been experiencing anxiety on when they will receive their vaccination appointment. They are keen to allay any fears and in a recent statement said: “We have been sending out text messages to patients aged 75 and over, inviting them to book their Covid vaccination. If you are unable to use the link in the message, please do not ring or come to the Health Centre or Henhayes Centre, we have a list of patients and will be ringing you.”
