Yes I think so, I think he meant as a general principle that the interval wasn't that critical.

Have just been for our second Pfizer vaccination. The medical centre where we had the first done are giving the second dose as they feel it is the correct thing to do. Pfizer have said it should be given 21 days after the first.We feel we are very lucky as so many haven’t had their first yet.

Does anyone know what the situation is if you’ve had an allergic reaction to penicillin in the past but don’t carry an epi pen? I assume you would just have to make sure you have it at a doctors or hospital rather than one of the large centres that will be doing vaccinations.

I assume they will check known allergies before you are injected and if you are allergic to the vaccine constituents they may not give it.
When I immunised children I always had adrenaline with me in case of anaphylaxis. I’m assuming this will be part of the protocol wherever you have the vaccine.
