It's a good local solution to the rigidity of the national booking system now that second doses have become more urgent.

I caught a post on Nextdoor this morning saying that the church place were doing walk ins today too so we stopped just now on the way back from my Mum's and bingo!

Yes, do. I barely had to queue, and it's such a relief not to have to think about it any more (getting it done rather than covid itself IYSWIM).

Good work though!

Hurrah Rebs! Mr C is now double jabbed too. He was in and out in less than 5 mins, very impressive.

I got a text yesterday cancelling my second jab. So I logged on to re-book and got a date two weeks earlier!

I'm glad you got one sooner, but why on earth did they cancel it?

Bringing up the rear :flirt: I am now first-jabbed :perky:

Things have clearly moved on from people being incorrectly turned away for being pregnant, or told they need a letter from their doctor etc - I am very visibly pregnant now (29 weeks) and it just meant I got some extra leaflets and questions. They also mentioned it’s now around 8 weeks for the next appointment to come through, so that’s filtering through too.

That's great news, Leap!

PSA for my fellow 40-49 year olds!

I was just chatting on Nextdoor complimenting the walk in service and the chap who is involved with it said he thought the national guidelines changed AGAIN yesterday and now over 40s who had AZ are allowed to bring their second appointments forward to 8 weeks.

He agreed that it would be better to phone 119 to check before zapping your booked appointment though. Also not sure how it applied to Pfizer and Moderna, as we were explicitly talking about AZ.

Some of my (young) team members in India are starting to get their vaccines now. I'm glad to hear other countries are getting there too.

My BIL in Spain has just had his first jab.

Has anyone heard of Moderna recipients having their second jab brought forward? I’ve gone past 8 weeks and am thinking of phoning up next week as I don’t want to cancel my 12 week appointment.

It's very good news about other countries - your BIL and india too.
