My son is autistic and although invited to have flu jab every year, he has never ever had it due to his fear of needles.
To give some back ground to his fear, a dental procedure where a needle was needed resulted in months of trying, passing him from one dentist to another, to a specialist surgery, then finally to hospital to be sedated
Similarly an ingrowing toe nail took over a year to be finally referred to hospital for sedation following numerous attempts at doctors surgery to give him a needle.
As Flu is seasonal, we never ever get past the point of a number of failed visits to surgery, spread over a few months, before we are heading out of flu season and jab no longer necessary.
With the Covid Vaccine clearly being of far more importance, I feel I am sleep walking into a scenario where he is going to be forgotten about as arrangements for hospital sedation should have clearly been booked by now as they seem to take months to come about.
Does anyone know what plans, if any, are in place to accommodate him with his vaccine?
