I had reminders about my 2nd COVID jab on Monday this morning , then later another email saying I had cancelled my jab and to make sure I book another, I absolutely didn’t cancel anyone else had this?
I’ve gone to book a new one and the very convenient pharmacy I had my first one with good parking isn’t even on the list. I’m just mad and venting.

well that's probably why it's been cancelled, if they're not doing them anymore.
i would re-book asap, in case supplies run out.
venue is unimportant, just get it done while it's still available.

Could be a system hiccup tanith inevitable there’ll be the odd glitch. Have you heard of shortages then wellbeck?

I'm having my 2nd Pfizer today. Husband had his 1st before me but GP has no supplies of AZ so he has to wait

Apologies for my rant I’ve made the appointment elsewhere now I was just thrown when I was blamed for cancelling when I plainly hadn’t.

nina, my GP has no AZ either and as a shielder, I must have it at the surgery. sad

tanith I appreciate you have had to rebook- is it somewhere you can trust?

Marydoll I do not know what to say except I am so sorry. You of all people need it asap.

I did wonder if they possibly didn’t have any AZ at the pharmacy I originally booked. Charleygirl it’s on the NHS list of vaccination pharmacies so I’m assuming it’s trustworthy, it’s in Greenford/Hanwell borders.

tanith if it is on a recognised list it should be legit even if it is a distance from where you live.

Sounds like a storm in a teacup to me. Just book a second jab somewhere else. You’ve got a car, so no problem.

Sorry, didn’t read thread, have done now. It did sound like a storm in a teacup, but it’s been solved now and the storm has calmed.

Marydoll you need your jab very much. Hope you get it soon. I’m getting mine, second jab, on Thursday next, but I’m Pfizer. It was mentioned that there might be some supply issues of the AZ vaccine this month, but we were assured that there would be enough. We were warned first jabs would slow a bit this month because second jabs would be a priority.

Luckily we seem to have run very smoothly in my area and all my family friends and acquaintances have had our second on time or for some of us a fortnight before

I’ve just discovered my old mum didn’t get her second dose last week as planned. They were supposed to visit her on Thursday to do it but no show. She called them up and they’ve pencilled her in for Monday but who knows if they’ll turn up.

No one at all bothered to let her blind friend know they wouldn’t be coming, the poor soul was sitting in her house all day waiting until my mum phoned her.

I hope everyone gets their second dose soon. I’ve had mine so am going to see my mum next week.
