Bosses at a Framlingham care home have said they are "so pleased" after their residents received the coronavirus vaccine.

With the support of Framlingham Medical Practice, the majority of residents at Mills Meadow care home, managed by Care UK, received their first dose of the jab last week.

One of the first residents in the queue for the vaccination was Jean Scriven, who said: “I was pleased to have the vaccine, as I now feel safer."

Rebecca Calver, Mills Meadows' home manager, said: “We are so pleased that residents in our home have had the vaccination.

"I would like to offer my thanks to the NHS team at Framlingham Medical Practice. They were incredibly efficient, friendly, and made sure everything went smoothly, which was much appreciated.
