what do you think Zizu?


Mmmm .. I really have no idea ..

My appointment letter came from a major hospital ... maybe they do things differently from surgeries or pharmacies etc ??

The carer thing..have mentioned it to Gavin and he says *maybe* it went on wh has claimed carers in the past, because his son does not get it now but did during the first lockdown as his college hours were none existant at that stage. I mean he still does the same amount of helping her, yet when his college was off, he could get some help to do so which seems silly to me. His course is only 3 days a week yet classed as fulltime so...
i simply got a letter from the NHS and thats because my age band is eligible for vaccination.

What should be of concern is that they are giving next to no doses of the vaccine to GP's now and directing 99% of the supply to vaccination centres, which is a real bummer for those that can't travel easily to one of these centres

my GP was getting 600+ doses a week, and now they get less than 100. With that supply its just not feasible to do much from GP's

weird my son got his text and he had a choice to go to the GP (not ours) or a vaccination centre, he got called about 3 weeks ago

I think there are also pop up vaccinations going on

I actually don't know anyone who has been vaccinated in the same place at this stage

I think you will receive your 2nd vac in the same place you got your first one maybe?

also they are ramping up as 2nd does are coming on stream more and more now so plan to double vaccinations by end of March to accommodate 2nd doses

I don't think there ARE any of the centres here...like, I live in the middle of a lot of fields and space with bugger all besides the one 'strip' of a couple of shops/takeaways, and the doctors. When we first moved here, the doctors didn't exist either, was really just this little tiny village in the middle of nowhere

I heard they were scaling back GPs doing 1st dose vaccines so they could concentrate on 2nd doses as the people getting close to 2nd doses are all older and so prefer to visit their GP. Most people now.eligible are more able to travel to the big vacc centres

I really think they should be forgetting the 'all adults in the UK plan' for NOW. And focussing more on the more vulnerable again with their second doses. Then focus on other groups.

Of course 50% of all UK adults vaccinated!!! makes a better headline than '20% of the most vulnerable in the country vaccinated fully' though.

my closest centre is 24 miles away, which is pretty impractical for those without a car or not on public transport routes

The problem with that comes though if they start wanting to implement vaccine passports type things. If they want to start opening the economy they need as many people with some protection.

The vaccine passport thing...I don't believe would ever happen for..visiting shops and stuff really. I am convinced thats media scaremongering. I can see it for foreign travel though..and would support it for that reason. I would not support this idea some have of being refused entry to the supermarket unless you can prove vaccinated status tbh...we don't do that with anything else..and like with the 'more dangerous' illnesses we vaccinate against, aslong as a certain number are willing to have it, a small percentage refusing doesn't make too much difference. Its only 'an issue' if large amounts refuse, and according to the last data I saw, like 94% of uk adults were willing to have it(mind, that was on the daily star or something, so not sure on accuracy!)

Also, as I see it, making it complulsary for most areas of everyday life...is basically forcing people to get it. And going down the road of removing consent for medical procedures (even something as generally harmless as a vaccine) is a very slippery slope.

Bloody hell..we are maybe 10 miles from newcastle so that would be the closest here. Awkward as **** to get to though for many. Older people especially and I swear our village is mainly like..OAPs. So very much hoping our gp manages to keep up with the vaccines, instead of sending people elsewhere.

Mind, from what I have heard, a LOT of people in gateshead/newcastle had appointmens which are being cancelled very quickly now too.

I had an appointment cancelled and it was rather distressing .. Iíd rather not have one than be offered one to see it cancelled.

Itís presumably unavoidable but ..

..I think that also it depends what your GP surgery facilities are in terms of storage etc...and also deliveries to individual practices/centres and areas...there have been delivery delays to my county, but not for every Gp surgery...

....(...actually Iíve not read back so maybe Iím talking about something entirely different...I often do.....)....

Agree with that, the first dose give the most protection, there is a very small bump of protection with the second dose, and I think it also keeps people at home while waiting for it, while if they had their second dose they might think oh vey I am off!

I wonder how much protection Iíve got at the moment !

I had my first Pfizer jab 8 days ago ( Tues evening- 23/2/21 ) and Iím due to return to full time work this Friday !!

I donít think thereís any real cover until day 21 and on Friday I will have 10 days cover

Our surgery is classed as a local hub, they are giving jabs to vulnerable and older patients from other surgeries in the surrounding villages and towns.
Whilst doing this they have obviously had to cut back on other services.
My docs rang me up to make an appointment to go for my jab, before I received the actual letter, I cheekily asked if they could do hubby at the same time as he is my carer.
Fantastic service from start to finish, cones were removed so hubby could park next to the door, then I was asked if I would like to sit in the car for the 15 minutes they like you to stay after the jab, rather than in the marquee.
Nurse at the door kept an eye on us as she was checking off people from her list letting them in for jabs.
The NHS are doing an amazing job.
