Itís vaccine time babyÖ Part 2



So, the vaccination saga continued in a very cold SAÖ

I finally got the jab! so let the Zombie Apocalypse begin!

It didnít go by uneventfully though, I was in the queue for 2 hours and this youngish guy just sauntered up to the front of the queue and cut into the queue.

Well, he didnít expect that thereíd be a little spitfire behind him.
I told him politely yet firmly that heís inconsiderate and rude. He had the audacity to say his time is precious

The only people Iíd allow in front of me are the elderly or disabled/pregnant but this was not appropriate.

Does this happen overseas at all or is it just SA

Dunno Minx. Round my neck of the woods there doesn't appear to be any queuing of the order of magnitude that you had.

Minx, You had to queue for two hours? I was in and out. The only waiting was after the vaccination where we had to sit for 15 minutes in the event you suffered a reaction to the vaccine.

It was organised to perfection.

Both my vaccinations were by appointment and I was seen on time, at the second one the I had hardly filled in the form when the nurse collected me.

As I recall at the first one the 15 minute wait afterwards was longer then the wait before and I arrived early because I knew there was a form that had to be filled out.

It was all very efficient (which is more than can be said about the vaccine roll out as a whole)

Actually Artangel- I was in the queue at 07:50am and finished at 11:30am - and, they ran out of vaccines AGAIN!

What £&@: planning is that!

Thatís the problem Bruce- awful planning since they take walk-inís as well then you get those inconsiderate individuals who cut the queue!

But then again, this is AfricaÖ

We, Son, Daughter & I, went to our surgery after being sent an appointment here & were vaccinated straight away.
We do have call in places & queues, but as I didn't have to do that & it was for the younger people, under 40's, I have no idea how long they have to wait.

I understand that all the"important" people have been vaccinated
first Minxy??
Over here it was the reverse, the "important" people were/are being
done last?? I suppose on the grounds that if the peasants fall
down dead with vaccine poisening, then the "important" people
will still be here to save the nation ??

Donkeyman! 🤔🤔

I think you're just a tad wrong there Donks. If memory serves, most of our "important" people were getting their jabs as and when they were being given their appointments. There was no hanging around waiting to make sure none of the peasants dropped down dead with vaccine poisoning.
