The community nurse has given me flu jabs for years. As with taking blood they have to go on a training course but it's been common practice for years that the nurses and Pharmacist can administer flu vaccines. I think this government are way out of touch!
Anything to make it look like they are doing something, with associated publicity, as all politicians do. They treat all of as imbeciles. My GP’s practice nurse has done all of my flu jabs as well, although the Pneumococcal vaccine had to be given by my GP.
I imagine hes talking about hca,not nurses
It is rather small to read. On zooming in, this is what the tweet said:
Mr Hancok told BBC Breakfast the Government was expanding it's flu vaccination programme this year because "we don't want a flu outbreak at the same time as dealing with coronavirus."
" We have bought more flu vaccine than ever before" he said
"We have changed the law so that more people can administer the jab. We want pharmasists, nurses and GPs to be able to administer the jab."
Have only ever had injections from a nurse at my practice?
Never from a doctor.
Just debating on whether to get one this year? Spent most of it sheilding and will likely spend the rest of it shielding, so wondering if anyone else on here is thinking the same? Obviously they only guess the strain, we all know that, or should do! & it would serve zero benefit to the covid...who else is up for debate on this year? Yes indeed, Hancock and his merry band are after all only front men in politics, they are blinded by real health issues or ones we face so doubt he even read the handbook, my concerns is being lead into failure now we hit the Tsumani, as we got the tail end of it March..April..and the fallout was appalling to not just the people who died, but to the crashing of the NHS and all our health care ..and the excess deaths behind it..sinister stuff. I don't put faith in politicans, antics or otherwise and glad I never did..never believe the unbelievable with agenda's..its a faith I live by ..
Likewise, I've been shielding since last November due to illness, and I do not plan on my first and only outing being to get a flu jab. It always makes me ill for the winter, and I've always wondered whether to stop having them, but was too worried in case I was wrong. But I feel too at risk to visit any health care professionals in order to get the vaccine this year with Covid still very much uncontrolled in the community so I will remain shielded and keep my fingers crossed I've made the correct decision.
Matt Hancock proves they have no idea what they are talking about regarding the NHS and vaccines. All the pharmacies and Nurses have been doing the flu shots for years.... Trust me I'm a 15 year long patient in receipt of nurse driven flu vaccine lol.
A nurse has done my flu vaccine too 🤔
Who does he think have been doing it for years!? 🤦♀️
You couldn't make him up could you?! His surname would be more fitting if a "d" was inserted in the middle (if you get me! !!). I for one will definitely be getting the flu jab! Any protection against as much as possible please! xx
Or maybe just change his first name to Tony.
Mmmmm ‘cept TH was clever and witty! 😂😂 xx
That he was. I still have all 6 series and the specials of his old radio shows. We used to listen to them on board the yacht during holidays on the Broads, moored up in the evenings.
Lol..What change in law? As a nurse I gave flu jabs, set up and gave IVs etc. My daughter works in a chemist they have been giving jabs for years.
Yet another lie. Day after day, lie after lie.
We had ours done at Tesco Pharmacy last year!
No, you really couldn't make it up! It doesn't give me much faith in the man.
News to me too, my surgery usually has flu clinics starting in September mainly manned by nurses. I have had mine done by on site nurses at work in dementia services, practice nurses ,and GPs. This year I am told I may have to wait till October although an at risk patient. Matt Hancocks Quote only adds to the confusion, I need the flu jab for health reasons to prevent extra pressure on the NHS not merely because this year is different. My last jab was done September 2019 so is due in the next two weeks along with many other patients who have it every year . So far I have had no appointment message although Boots Chemist is doing jabs already as are other surgerys in my area. I need warning as I need to arrange transport to get to the surgery and back. So much for the comments patients are not attending hospital or GPs for routine services. Normal services have not resumed in most NHS routine departments as the customers reports verify, it is still only running an emergency service which is understandable due to distancing and isolation needs by key workers.Sorry for this long one but I like many others is getting fed up of my medical needs being overlooked while others suggest all is normal. This is not fair to patients or staff who are employed to meet their needs.
No it's not fair is it when you feel you're getting pushed to the back of the queue ad infinitum by the health service!
The way the health service is run is inefficient even when times are good but no it's not fair though when the chronically ill keep getting their appointments postponed to some unknown date in the future and feel forgotten about.
Your so right my appointments from March to see the Hospital consultants continuously keep being cancelled .I've no chance of getting a face to face appointment with my Doctor so I too am frustrated by such comments
Its not fair is it when you have psyched yourself up for an appointment only to be told at the last minute its cancelled!
A lady I know has just had her physio re routed from phone to face to face later this month but it could still get cancelled like yours no doubt. Next thing we will be told its delayed due to winter illness/flu/noravirus. However if you can afford private or have health insurance you can be seen very quickly, maybe even by the same consultant as the NHS appointment would be.
Well well, my pharmacist has broken the law now all these years!
I have problems hearing anything he has to say, MH, I begin to doubt myself😁😂😂
Hi Gingerapple, I’m now considering contacting a lawyer to sue Lloyd’s Pharmacy and my GP practice nurse for illegally vaccinating me for the last five year’s😂, you really couldn’t make this up could you?!
I await the next government announcement with baited breath, maybe Transport Secretary Grant Shapps will announce he has invented the wheel and is going to patent it!😅😅
😁🤣🤣Yes, you never know what's coming next, it's like the Muppets Show😆😂but not as funny😄I'm keeping an eye out for the next MH-Blunder🤣🤣
Matt Hancock talks a load of crud!
Remember back in March when he caused a lot of upset claiming all over 70s supposedly were to stay at home for 4 months due to covid and it wasn't true!
Last year five nurses at our surgery were giving the flue vaccine and I and two others were controlling the traffic. This year I have booked at Boots as I think it might be a long wait at the surgery.
Take what Matt Hancock says with a grain of salt as he talks a load of crud!
I thought that's why the surgeries employ nurses to give injections and things.
Yes I've had mine done by pharmacist and practice nurse too 😄
What a complete Cock Hancock is I couldn't believe what I was reading indeed I had to get my wife to verify to me who actually was giving me my flu jabs all these years " Nurse" she shouted "is your memory going as well as everything else "...
I think he's a stupid bastard myself!
They always have 🤔
