16th March 2021 - Connected Care's European Clinical Manager has been working as a Community First Responder (CFR) in her community during Covid-19, and has been helping the vaccination efforts. Follow Alex on her journey through Covid-19 as a Community First Responder in Northamptonshire.
A small exerpt from the story:
"We were all given hope and a glimpse of light at the end of tunnel in December: the vaccine was there. The first one here in the UK was the Pfizer BioNTech and everyone was obviously very excited. Our CFR scheme was asked to be part of the rollout across Northamptonshire, along with a number of other Northamptonshire schemes. We were the only CFRs in the country to be asked to be involved, everyone was watching to see how this would work. I leapt at the chance to be involved with the rollout as it meant I could not only use my nursing skills, albeit rusty, but it meant that I could really feel like I was playing my part in not only getting our local communities vaccinated but also getting the country going again."
