Mine was done directly opposite the zoo. As far as I'm aware they don't have bats, pangolins or mink.

If they do, let's hope they're not in the same cages.

Probably best to avoid the café.

Just in case.

Phoned up pharmacy where I've booked second jab.

They say they DO have wheelchair access, which is not what's on the NHS website about the pharmacy and partner says it would be awkward. Will go aheadand RANT if there are problems...

and if you can, complain in writing.

A friend PAs for a wheelchair user, the vacc centre had gravel and a step in, wheelchair user managed but if the weather was wet it wouldn't be possible. This needs to be something that centres GET RIGHT in terms of info provision.

Indeed!

I have completed the anonymous feedback survey on the gov.uk website to express my disgruntlement but I'm going to trust pharmacy employee's word, watch events and moan if things don't work. I feel I've done my bit by checking the right boxes, looking at the pharmacy's website and phoning them up. I'm robust and have an able-bodied partner, who can help/lug me out of most trouble. We'll see; things MIGHT be fine...

We were asked, as a Parish Council, if we would offer the village hall as a testing/vaccination centre.  Unfortunately, they wanted it at a time when we had works booked that meant the accessible entrance would be out of action, and we had to say 'yes but...'.   They chose not to use it...  but then I got told off by locals who said we "weren't doing our bit" and that we should have cancelled the (long planned) works.

My daughter is self testing  using kits provided by the school.  Filling in the form saying negative takes ages, and you have to provide all the information every time (and it won't let me copy/paste emails/phone numbers in my phone), but today it allowed me to get to the end of the process and then just said it failed and I should try again later! It says that the website is Alpha, so I understand that it's not necessarily finished, but this is kinda important.

Well, you should complain to the coder. It was Matt Hancock's next-door-neighbour.
Bach without a doubt.

I would say it's his neigbour's 13 year old kid - but they'd have probably done a better job.

When you consider the number of people having to enter this, that's an awful lot of wasted hours (must be approaching millions if it takes an extra minute or two every time you do the test) due to someone not spending an extra few hours on coding/testing.

When we got jabbed they were also asking for NHS numbers. If they want that info at the time then bloody well put it on the confirmation email / text.  Not joined up.

Leaving the encoding of the microchip that close to injection is yet another illustration of poor organisation and it beggars belief that they became our overlords in the first place.

I got jabbed at the GP on Saturday afternoon.  It was the most efficient system ever. They had multiple jabbers, who just sat in their rooms and did the injecting, multiple nurses in the waiting room doing the box ticking, and multiple helpers to guide people around and make sure they were holding the right bit of paperwork. Plus a 1-way system that took you in the front door and spat you out the back. I was through in about 2 minutes flat!

Still got a sore arm, but otherwise I think I got away quite lightly on the side effect front.

Off for a PCR test tomorrow. Felt really rough today, headache, shivery. Cancelled work tomorrow. Lateral flow test is negative but need to be safe. I suspect it is just exhaustion.
