Mine is next Monday.
I've told not to arrive early and to be no more than 5 minutes late, or I will miss my turn ::) In effect it means I'll have to wait outside until I'm allowed in for the jab  :D
Best get it done though as OAPs (at least) are getting a jab with adjuvant added which improves immune response generally.

Plotfather and I had to announce our arrival at the surgery through a new intercom and then wait outside for the nurse to come and get us! No waiting room in use at our surgery now.

They were fabulous at our surgery, a month ago.

We were given a time, but they had a 'rolling' admission for each hour, which meant that if you were a few minutes early, you got the jab within a minute or so! Checking in, temperature etc. was a doddle, and banter was easy as well!

Well done anyone getting the thing, our nurses are so clever, that they usually say 'sharp scratch' after the event!

Done yesterday.  Arrive no more than 5 minutes before appointment time wearing mask then in the door, temperature taken, check your name, jab your arm and out the back door.  Smooth operation.

We haven't had ours yet but since my wife is profoundly disabled and I am her full-time carer we both get done at home by the District Nursing team. It is always very smoothly done.

I had mine done a couple of weeks ago.  I had rung the docs, and wasn't convinced, so I book on-line a jab at Tesco (still NHS free).   
As it happened a few days before that date, I had to go to another surgery for blood tests, and said to the nurse could she do a flu jab, so she did.     I cancelled Tesco, although their consulting room is squeaky clean.  Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

I've never had one and don't intend to. :)

Cheers,  Tony.

The other half has just had his done.  Reckons he was in the surgery for a total on 90 seconds.  They were running a very efficient service there today.

Mum had hers done at the local pharmacy - saved a trip to the doctors  :)
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Daughter has just had to persuade the guys where she works to have theirs.  She is HR for a bin company - the prize for a flu jab is a coffee, a doughnut and a rather natty superman plaster.
