This is a new low, even for Mick.

Comment by: Dostaf on 8th March 2021 at 00:56

Healthcare professional performing an injection bare-handed? Odd!

Yes history being made by this Astrazeneca vaccine jab, it was the 10,000,000 jab to be done in the UK, and on the morning of the jab  they also announced on the news some very positive new results for Astrazeneca vaccine.
Well done to all our very clever scientist in developing this vaccine so quickly and to our marvelous NHS service and government in setting the vaccinating centers.

Not a 'shot' you really want to see on a wet Monday in March...

Comment by: Maureen on 8th March 2021 at 09:03

Mick,I've something to tell you...we've all had it done. lol.

Comment by: Dave (Oy) on 8th March 2021 at 09:47

Pity you didn't get a proper pic with the whole the two of you in, I did. That could be anyone at anytime.

Dostaf: The nurse who gave me my jab wasn't wearing gloves either. I reckon it's easier and safer to just keep sanitising them.

Comment by: Irene Roberts on 8th March 2021 at 10:02

It was a vaccinating "centre" in Golborne where I had mine done, Mick, not a "center"....WHY do we have to copy Americans?! I'm amazed you didn't say it was a "defense" against covid! Speak English for Heaven's sake!

Comment by: Arthur on 8th March 2021 at 10:14

Been done some weeks now, but why is the nurse not wearing disposable gloves?

Comment by: janet on 8th March 2021 at 10:16

you need help mick bad photo

Comment by: Mick on 8th March 2021 at 10:29

Teasey what is it with you being so obsessive with the use of hapostrophes.

Comment by: DTease on 8th March 2021 at 10:55

YOUR apostrophe matters
Because if you leave it out
No one will know
What YOU'RE talking about.

Comment by: Veronica on 8th March 2021 at 11:20

Dtease it's Mick's trademark - it's a result of all that ear bashing at school from the nuns - so he says.
Mick I'm sure you have better photos than this one in your 'archives'. I'm sick to death of seeing folk having jabs. It's everywhere you look..

Comment by: Julie on 8th March 2021 at 11:31

So what!

Comment by: Tommy T on 8th March 2021 at 11:46

I agree, our English language is being diluted into a mixture of American/Asian rubbish.
I saw a van a few months ago advertising a DIY CENTER on Wallgate.
So I thought if you can't be bothered to spell it properly I won't be spending money in your shop.

Comment by: Mick on 8th March 2021 at 11:53

Oy I dont have the luxury of a flip screen camera, so I did it by just pointing my camera blindly and hoping for the best.

Just remembered theirs a video to accompany this photo

Corvid Jab Video https://youtu.be/eo-01Ox4guE just copy and paste the link to be amazed

Comment by: Mick on 8th March 2021 at 11:56

Tommy T, CENTER to me is the rite way to spell it.

Comment by: PeterP on 8th March 2021 at 12:03

Opposite with CIDER now CIDRE

Comment by: Wiganer on 8th March 2021 at 12:17

Doesn't mean that's right not wearing gloves

Comment by: Veronica on 8th March 2021 at 12:32

You might well say " So what!" Julie . Which is a question incidentally.
The answer is so that what is written will be understood basically . There would then be no need to decipher what is being said, which is tedious work for whoever is receiving the written word. It's what we all learned at primary school no less. Just shows 'sloppiness' and couldn't care less attitude. So what?
That's my opinion which is as valid as yours.

Comment by: Alan on 8th March 2021 at 12:48

Mick we don't need to watch a video, seen it done many times on TV.

Comment by: Helen of Troy on 8th March 2021 at 13:00

I've had a good laugh at all this banter but really Mick you have to get things right. In English CENTRE is not spelt CENTER which ever way you want to look at it....& weren't you a brave boy taking a pic while having your jab !

Comment by: Nick on 8th March 2021 at 13:02

Maureen I have something too tell you we have not all had it done some of us are still waiting.

Comment by: Irene Roberts on 8th March 2021 at 13:08

Peter P. The firm that makes Cidre is French which is why they use the French spelling...thankfully it's still good old cider in Britain! Mick does a lot of bad grammar and spelling just to wind us up....he enjoys it!

Comment by: Russ on 8th March 2021 at 13:24

I think the 10,000,000 figure is a notional thing.
My sister in law was told the same thing when she had her vaccination in Chorley on Saturday.

Comment by: Veronica on 8th March 2021 at 13:44

He probably spent his schooldays 'waggin' it around Shevvy.

Comment by: DTease on 8th March 2021 at 14:03

Now he wags it all over Wigan and District.

Comment by: Dave (Oy) on 8th March 2021 at 15:41

Mick - I just used my phone and asked one of the doctors to take it once I'd got it in the right place etc.

Comment by: Mick on 8th March 2021 at 18:47

Dave I think the Doctors have enough to do other that taking photos of me having my jab.
I know its not the best but its good enough for Wiganworlds Photo a Day

Comment by: Malc on 8th March 2021 at 20:34

Why should anyone want a photo of a covid jab ??

Comment by: Dostaf on 8th March 2021 at 20:38

Thanks Dave (Oy) . I suppose it would be more straightforward to sanitize thoroughly. It just seemed something of an alien (certainly in these times) concept.
