Covid-19 outbreak at care home which was first to receive vaccine

A care home which was the first to roll out the coronavirus vaccine has seen an outbreak of the virus.

Abercorn Care Home in Hamilton began vaccinating residents on December 14.

The care home providers Sanctuary Care and NHS Lanarkshire are working together to manage the outbreak, the Sunday Mail reports.

Annie Innes, 90, was the first to receive the vaccine but she is not among the new cases. A total of 51 residents were vaccinated at the home.

Experts believe the outbreak demonstrates the vaccine may not be enough to end the pandemic.
