We've had both the letter and pinged by E mail. Got Shot 3 done last Friday and the flu shot Saturday Morning. We felt a bit rough yesterday. We had all 3 done in the same place, opposite the old Market Tavern. They wont let you have it done until 6 months has expired so November looks likely. They will get in touch Peter.

This website looks to be the best to check for local vaccination information, PeterP:

Just a heads up from personal experience, try to get your flu jab at a different time to Cov3. We had the shot on Friday and the flu jab on Saturday Morning. Saturday night/ Sunday, rough as. Previously, Cov1, stiff joints and a temperature for about 12 hours, Cov2 nothing at all, both Astra Zenica. Cov3 was the Pfizer strain. Aches, pains, muzzy head and a fever, all seems to be clearing up now though.

I had me floo jab last week, and I felt bit off for about three days, on day two I felt a bit warm, so I presume that was having a temperature.

I had my flu jab on the 16th Sept,at my doctors and the booster on the 29th Sept at St Peters, I had a text message from the doctors for the booster, if you don't get word from your doctor you can't have the booster at St. Peters even though you had both other jabs at St. Peters.

Hows about this,, for me first Covid shot, I had a text message from me GP, telling me to book the jab with them, I left it a day from the text message, and when I rang up they basically said tough luck, yoo missed it, because all our appointments have been taken, and then the week after I got a text message from the Wigan Borough CCG, telling me to follow a link and book the first Covid jab at Robin Park, which I did, Robin Park is being used by the Wigan Borough CCG (Wigan Gp's) as a Vaccination Hub, and whilst waiting for that appointment, I received a letter from the NHS to book a jab, which would have been at the Wicked Stadium in St Helens, or that place in Mesnes Street.

I had a text from nhs, had it done today. Already had flu jab, but they would have done it if I hadn't of had it. Very efficient, in my opinion.

Hi Fossil, it would have been off the NHS because I had to ring a number and I asked if the missus could come and she asked a couple of questions and she said yes.

Had nothing yet although have a flu jab appointment 29th Oct. Enquired several times about booster but always told to wait. This is even though others had their second jab after me and are also younger.

Covid mass-vaccination program for the UK began on 8th December, 2020. On that day, the total number of covid cases in the UK was 12,000.

One month later, the total cases in the UK hit almost 60,000.

The mass-vaccination programme continued.

Over the next 5 months, cases dropped to around 2,000.
Backs were patted. Titles were dished out and bonuses were paid.

The mass-vaccination programme continued.

Then, cases started to rise, reaching over 50,000 last week. Although over 87% of the population have been vaccinated against it?

And you are bothering about "a booster"?

Doyou believe in Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy and Coronation Street?

Glad to see so many of us are having all the jabs. Makes perfect sense to me.

Less than 70% of the population have been at least double vaccinated so far and around 15% of those aged 12 and over have not been vaccinated at all.

I wonder if Tonker has had the jab, not because he believes it to be effective, but just to suit his purposes

Wonder ye not!

No. I've not had a vaccination against covid.
I considered having one whilst over in Spain last month, when I had the chance of the Jansen one.. It would serve a purpose, ie: I wouldn't have to have a test to go over on an aeroplane.

I have to have a pcr test if I'm flying it over there.
I have to have a free antigen test if I'm driving it through France.
I have to have 2 free tests when I return to the UK (day 2 and day 8).
I have to fill in an online "passenger locator form - QR Code" either way, but so does everybody else, vaccinated or not.

Several people were turned away fromthe airport, in Spain, yesterday, for not having filled the online form in correctly. One of them was a lad, from Wakefield, travelling with us.

There are no covid cases in Spain at the moment.

We're not joining in this mass experiment of population subjugation either. How many more "boosters" will be "advised"? How many more people need to die of cancer, heart disease, etc on the God of covid.
The vaccine came for Covid, not the other way round, follow the money.
I am not an anti-vaccer, just each to his own.
How did Dettol get their products out , "also kills covid" so quickly?
