She survived the Sheffield Blitz and at 101 years old she became Broomgrove Nursing Home’s first resident to get the Corona vaccine.
Joyce Green, who had her first jab last Friday (January 8th), said she was immensely proud to be number one and was extra proud “as I even had it before the Queen”!
30 care home residents and 50 staff have now received their first jabs at Dore Medical Surgery.
Broomgrove Manager Donna Pierpoint said it was a fantastic feeling to finally start to see some light at the end of the tunnel.
“Though it’s early days and we’ve all got to have a second jab in a few weeks time, it felt like a weight had been lifted from us. The jab was totally painless and the whole operation was incredibly well managed by NHS staff.
“We all felt well after and I would absolutely encourage anyone and everyone to have the vaccine.”
Queen Elizabeth had her jab the day after Joyce Green – on Saturday, January 9th.
