Yes that does seem a bit pathetic, imagine if everybody was going to die within three days without a jab of something or other, you could line everybody up and get it done very quickly, some people are doers and others find any excuse or reason not just to get on with it.I was discussing this with friends today. Jabs 1 and 2 were handled extremely efficiently; both one of our friends and I are classed as vulnerable so had letters and texts from the NHS plus follow-up texts from our local GP Practice. The jabs were centralised in the GP Practice of a larger village and again very efficient. However it seems that the process for arranging boosters has changed, and not for the better as it all seems to fall on GP practices now. Ours is short staffed and incredibly busy for a rural practice so my wife had to ask them if she could book as I was 6 months and one week since my 2nd jab. The receptionist said yes but the earliest appointment was the 24th November i.e. 4 weeks after I am due for the jab! The reason given was they don't have the staff to cope which given the success of jabs 1 and 2 just doesn't make sense. I'm very suspicious that it's an admin problem in that they can't deal with the checking and booking overhead but I intend to contact the practice manager to find out.
