Well what a morning I have had. I got my letter Monday telling me to contact my GP or Consultant. I am due my Rituximab in 4 weeks so at the limit for vaccine. GP surgery said contact 119. I did but they said can’t book it now because the 6 months since your last jab isn’t up until Thursday. Rang this morning to find out “Sorry we only arrange boosters not 3rd jabs) rang Doctors, “we don’t have any clinics available yet” ring 119 tell them you want a booster! It’s exactly the same. I said you want me to lie? Yes! Wasn’t comfortable but rang back 119, they took details to tell me “sorry! Your not eligible because your CEV, the system cannot book appointments for CEV who want 3rd jab, it’s different to the booster, call your GP back. Called GP back, they said “sorry can’t help” try walk in centre” none available until Saturday. In total desperation rang Consultant who I see tomorrow (answer phone) didn’t ring back. Further desperation rang local pharmacy, they suggested everything I had already done.
The Pharmacist out of the kindness of her heart said “have you a letter? Yes! “Can you prove the date of your last vaccine? Yes! 21st April. So she has agreed to see me in her walk in vaccination centre tomorrow which is 65 miles from the Hospital I am seeing my consultant at.
What a Bloody nightmare! This is not right!
