This whole program is an utter farce.
Got my first AZ jab on 5th June when my GP was running a clinic, was told at the time that they would run another clinic 8 weeks later which would be this Saturday. After receiving no communication about it I went in today and they said there now won't be a second clinic but I could go into the town centre today where a mobile vaccination centre has been set up for both AZ and Pfizer vaccines and I could have it a couple of days early.
Went down the town and queued up for the vaccination only to be told they aren't doing AZ at all and the only way would be to go back to booking online at another centre. Tried that and just as before i'm being offered locations upwards of 30 miles away and all appointments are midweek which I couldn't attend anyway, never mind the fact I ain't travelling that far for it.
They couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.
Just had my second one done. Because Redcar has effectively washed their hands of anyone needing AZ I was in Middlesbrough today and managed to get off early to go to the walk-in at North Ormesby.
As seen in recent posts above my GP stated clearly that they had effectively washed their hands of organising second vaccines and left people like me to fend for themselves and find a second dose of AZ. As above I did so earlier this week then lo and behold today a letter arrives from the GP inviting me to a second vaccine appointment in their surgery.
What a mess.
