Magda Smith, the Chief Medical Officer at BHRUT, which runs the hospital, said: “I am excited about this vaccine as I believe it will be a game changer.
“I have absolutely no hesitation in having it to protect myself from Covid-19 so I can continue to help my patients. When it’s your turn, please do get jabbed.
“I am delighted our vaccination hub is now open, ensuring those who need it most, like care home workers and vulnerable frontline staff, are first in line to get it.
“The vaccine is our best defence against Covid-19 and will help make 2021 a better year than 2020 has been.”
Those eligible for the vaccine at this stage will be contacted directly to book an appointment, BHRUT said.
