We had out first vaccination this morning.
We arrived at the Medical Centre at 11.10am for our 11.30am appointment. We were told we could go straight in.
Everyone was so friendly, it was a well organised system considering it covered 5 practices.
After the usual hand sanitising we were both shown into the room where a nurse asked a few questions, then I offered to have the first vac, Mr M followed suit. No problem at all, just felt a slight prick with the needle which didn't even make me wince, then it was all done. We were then given a card as proof of vaccination.
I think the secret is to relax your arm not hold it tense, then the needle goes in better.
We left the room and were handed a timer which was set for 15mins and escorted to a waiting room to await the timer to buzz.
After, we were escorted to the way out - didn't have to touch a door all through the process.
We actually left the Med Centre 1 minute before our original appointment time! That's what I call good service!
Well done to our local doctors and all the NHS staff for a harmless experience!
We were told we will receive a phone call to have the 2nd vac in 3 - 12 weeks.
Feeling fine at the moment, no aches, pains or headaches
