Capecare Accountant Leanda van Zyl with 777 Pharmacist Scott Braddock

Capecare residents and staff boosted by Pharmacy 777 visit

More than 30 staff and residents of Capecare in Busselton took advantage of a visit by Pharmacy 777 Busselton last week to have their COVID-19 booster shots.

The pharmacy is providing vaccine shots to a number of local aged care facilities and Pharmacist Scott Braddock who administered the vaccines said providing the vaccines on site to residents made it less stressful for them and easier to obtain and it took pressure off the pharmacy as well.

“Last year was the first year pharmacists were allowed to vaccinate outside of the pharmacy and this is the first time we’ve provided vaccinations on other premises. I’ve brought a portable fridge along to Capecare to make it easy and hopefully we can do more of it,” he said.

Capecare CEO Joanne Penman said the free service provided by Pharmacy 777 Busselton was greatly appreciated. “Staff and residents were keen to utilise this service as it provided convenience for staff and it was more comfortable for residents to not have to travel outside of our property to attend an appointment. It shows great community spirit and we are very thankful for this kind offer,” she said.
