Barmeyoldbat, thank goodness your surgery is on the ball! I may move there. ?
The practice manager in my surgery, when I asked for help, told me that she didn't know what I was talking about and couldn't help me. I got the same brush off from the vaccination helpline.
The recommendation that the third Primary Vaccination should be given eight weeks after the second, doesn't seems to have filtered through to those, who should be in the know. Mine was only five months and two weeks late!
So Saetana, they may be the same vaccine, but they are used in a totally different way.
Fanny, surprisingly, my BP is lower than it has been in years, despite the inaccuracies, being posted on this thread, the conspiracy theories and the lack of compassion from some posters! ?
I certainly do not claim to be an expert, but I have tried to the best of my ability to be accurate. If this thread helps only one person, it will be worth it.
However, that's Gransnet for you. Everyone is allowed to post their opinion, that's the way it should be.
PS. Saetana, you say your husband is ECV, surely you want to keep yourself safe, for his sake?
My DH and children are all double vaccinated and my daughter and SIL, who are my main carers, will be eligible for a booster, because of me and will accept the invitation.
We are all testingand reporting twice a week, as well.
We have got this far, the last thing they want is to bring infection into the house.
Like Missedout, I too want my life back. I am becoming a recluse and miss my friends, but I cannot take that risk. What is even more painful, a couple think I am making a fuss about nothing, they just don't get it!
My health has deteriorated, due to cancelled hospital appointments, delayed treatment and lack of monitoring my conditions. I had a second heart attack in January, because no-one was monitoring me. HDU, in the middle of a pandemic, that was scary!
Half the people who have come on this thread, haven't read it properly. That's what happens when a thread becomes long. It's understandable, but does muddy the waters a bit.
Please read the whole thread, especially the title.
