Eldest resident receives first Peninsula vaccination

The Peninsula's oldest resident Ms Biddy Abrahams, 104, was its first to receive the Covid-19 vaccine last week.

After having been told they would receive the vaccination in the previous week, residents of Peninsula Village in Umina were the first on the Peninsula to have their injections last Tuesday and Wednesday, March 2 and 3, in the Phase 1 rollout to aged care residents.

Residents of Blue Wave Living aged care home in Woy Woy, who had also been expecting their vaccinations the previous week, are still waiting.

They have not been given a date, but their vaccinations may happen this week.

Peninsula Village chief executive Mr Shane Neave said: "The eldest of our residents, the 104-year-old dynamo Biddy, ensured she was the first one to sit in the nurse's chair.

"She walked away afterwards with a smile from ear-to-ear."

Mr Neaves said: "We are so proud of our staff who were patient, caring and reassuring during a period of disruption that had the potential to cause anxiety, confusion and distress for residents.

"Our biggest praise goes to our wonderful residents who were understanding, helpful and cooperative during the entire process."
