Earlier this morning, the 5,000th person received their first vaccine injection since opening the doors to our Covid-19 vaccination hub. Sunny Choudhary, a Radiology Support Worker at Queen’s Hospital, has worked for us for more than four years and was “excited” to receive his first jab…and a complimentary box of Cadbury’s Heroes for being the 5,000th person!
Speaking about the vaccine, Sunny said: “I feel very happy and excited to receive my first jab. I want to keep people around me safe and I also want to get back on a plane ASAP, so it was great to receive the vaccine. I would encourage others to book their slot if possible as it has made me feel a lot safer, however it is important to respect personal choice. I was surprised and proud to be the 5,000th person to receive the vaccine at our hub and I am also going to enjoy my chocolates, which I will be sharing with the Radiology team.”
Over recent weeks, we’ve been delighted to vaccinate not just BHRUT staff but also local authority and NELFT colleagues working in care homes.
