So - some GPs/vaccinators are 'using up' the Pfizer jab at the end of the day on relatives who may be outside the guidelines relative to age.  ?? Better ?? than wasting any? 

What the Press haven't told the public is how many people who were booked in 4 their jabs, did not attend, therefore leaving syringes with what would be wasted.  It can be kept for 5 days after defrosting which is quite a process on it's own taking anything from 20-45 mins.

It annoys me that the public aren't told the whole story   :bang:

My friend, who is in his early seventies and still undergoing cancer treatment, was called by his surgery on Friday as someone hadn't turned up for their vaccination and he was on their "reserve" list as long as he could get there within half an hour. He's very grateful. I think each surgery must be going about things in their own way rather than waste a vaccination.

I think the vaccine is going to be a bit of a postcode lottery.  Know of someone who has got theirs booked in and is 66 and no health conditions.

That mayB due to plenty of vaccines in that area and not the dynamic that's been suggested.  If there are plenty of vaccines that have to be reconstituted and not enough of the age groups i.e. 70s/80s then the younger ones will be called in order to avoid wastage.

Some have to be on standby in case others don't turn up.  It will sort itself.

Got my first one done today  8). I was given the Pfizer at one of the hubs.

I think this hub (Epsom Downs Racecourse) is keeping the local taxi firms going, as there is no public transport there. So if you've no car....

I saw on the News earlier that Taxi drivers are ferrying the public free to and from the hubs - there is a go-funding page to cover their costs. Great idea for those taxi owners out of work.

Fine thanks, jaypo. A bit sore at the injection site but that's all. Pleased to have got started but wondering how long I'll have to wait for the next one.

Hope you are OK.

I don't think it will matter too much about the gap between jabs., it's about getting as many as possible covered to lessen the spread.

The carriers are the danger  :o

Jaypo did they investigate why you had such a bad reaction to the flu jab? They're advising those with allergies to see their doctor so they choose an appropriate vaccine.
MIL had no side effects at all, her sister had a sore arm for a couple of days.

Could it have been egg reaction?

What information were you given prior/after the vaccine?  My friend had the Pzifer jab yesterday and wasn't told to continue keeping way from others, she thought she can go out and about  :-\.  No discussion prior to the vaccine and a leaflet after which she hasn't yet read. 

No wonder people think that they are instantly protected  :-\.  With all the media hype some are finding it difficult to sort truth from fact ........

My dad had his this morn and was told by the gp he is still not covered and can still catch covid. A hard message, but probably the right one?!?!
