My mum got hers but had to travel a small distance as her local surgery didn't have the kit to store the Pfizer jabs.  A local cab company were doing a deal - £20 all in and they wait for you to come out and take you straight home again.

It is worth checking if anyone local to you is doing the same if you can't drive yourself  :)

Locally, we have a voluntary 'taxi' service, available to the elderly/infirm for hospital/physio appointments that charge a token fee - they have extended the service to cover vaccinations.
So yes, well worth doing a search locally to see if there's something similar near you  :)

Saturday's number of vaccinations given was fantastic - they're really getting this one right. Looking forward to getting our jabs in due course, probably March.
My 77 year old neighbour had his on Saturday :)
My pal in France will be getting his in 2023/24 at the present rate - but he's got a lot of wine to drown his sorrows whilst he waits.

Mrs Growster and I had the call last week, and were invited to Headcorn Aerodrome on Sunday morning!

It was almost a carnival affair, with smiling faces everywhere!

It's so good to see the 'normal' (as opposed to the 'idiot') press and even the BBC, ringing the praises for the way UK Inc. has got its act together! Contrary to their usual negativity, there's not much to moan about now so maybe we'll get even more good news in the next few weeks...

Not all the vaccines have the 15 min wait time- only the ones that have a risk of an allergic reaction.
People react differently and feeling unwell for a few days is within the normal range.

I hope he's feeling better now.

Worzel and I had our first jabs today. 

Very efficient.  15 min socially distanced sit down afterwards just in case we had a funny reaction (no idea how theyíd tell with Worzel  :wacko:)

i had my first one today at my surgery.  Really well organised, straight in and didn't feel a thing. Fifteen minutes' waiting and back home again.  Hopefully my husband will have his soon, but when I checked with his surgery to make sure his details were correct, we found that they had de-registered him because he hadn't been for such a long time (42 years).  Re-registered this morning, and should hear soon about an appointment.

You were right to be suspicious jezza.  If they have to ask you for details, it is dodgy.  If it was the surgery calling, they would know exactly what your history was as it can affect the type of vaccine they offer you.

There's a lot of crooks out there and there's no depth they won't sink too. Good save, jezza
