Morning All My wife and myself had our jabs yesterday. As stated by others it was well organised, spotlessly clean and everyone was welcoming and helpful. My only criticism is that my wife is registered as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) and is still very ill and in a wheelchair, yet this seemed to be completely disregarded when you go for the jab. We had to queue alongside everyone else and sit and wait our turn. It does not make much sense to me to tell CEV people that they must shield, or isolate themselves, for nearly 12 months but when it comes to the vaccination you are treated the same as the fully fit community. Surely CEV people should be identified and fast tracked through the process to ensure that they are with and around other people for the minimum amount of time thus reducing the probability of catching any infection.
The good news is we had the AstraZeneca jab and had no immediate adverse reactions. Although my wife did have a sleepless night and her aches and pains were somewhat worse than normal. Hopefully this will improve in a couple of days.
It is a considerable relief to know that we are on the road to being protected though - which we are very grateful for.
