Above.

Perfect timing as with luck there's a couple of events coming up in March that I'd like to attend.

Anyone else got their date yet? Or have you already had the first and/or even second ones?

           I've got mine on Monday but my 2nd one isn't till the end of April

    Senior management gets hers tomorrow and the second dose on 23rd April, but the advice is that you still need to follow all the rules inc. wearing a mask and social distancing and staying at home.
     It seems very unlikely that any events will be taking place in March i'm afraid as according to todays news we could still be in full or partial lockdown until April.
    Whilst as of today 10.5 million people have had their first jab around 57 million haven't so whilst it's been a huge achievement there's a long long way to go.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Yeah I don’t expect events to be running in March either to be fair.

    Cheers, it was all pretty painless, in and out in seconds up at the Church in Crosspool.. I know it well because a long long time ago I trained up there in Karate.

    Not had mine yet 
    Did get a letter yesterday telling me I would get an appointment soon through my gp 

    What a waste of money from the NHS a 2 page letter just to say i would be contacted 

    I know nhs have and are amazing but sometimes I do question their practices and management 
  • SwatteamSwatteam Member Posts: 152 Courageous
    @janer1967 I know hat you mean about the nhs  when they have technology to send text  waste of money paperwork etc  my hospital nhs doesn't use paper they send me an email to tell me about receiving a phone call appointment. 
  • janer1967janer1967 Community champion Posts: 7,457 Disability Gamechanger
    Again it's the consistency and that's down to management of the whole nhs all hospitals   hps  etc should use same methods of communication 

    I get appointment letters, after often making the appt by phone   then get letter  then get text reminder , have to book transport which currently is like trying to get bloodout of stone despite having needing if for every appt for the last 3 years

    senior management had her first jab on fri. and will get her second same place same time on 23/4, it was all quite simple really a week ago got a text with a link to make the appt. took all of 5 minutes, when she turned up for the jab she was in and out in 5 minutes.

    @janer1967 i get emails which I can print off to let me know etc get a text reminder from the nhs, I only get paper letters when I've spoke to the consultant dealing with my op. Must be different areas use different communication methods,
