    Round here we got summoned for our flu jabs by text, no idea what happens with people who haven't got a mobile phone. Like my mum.
    My mother has to wait in the surgery for 15 minutes after the jab - I suppose this is to make sure there aren't any immediate adverse reactions such as anaphylaxis. I imagine that this will slow things down. Apparently we have inoculated 138,000 people in the first week. According to my [appalling] maths, at this rate it will take nine years to do everyone.

    A few weeks back I got summoned by text to have a flu jab, so now I'm officially elderly. Made an appointment for five days later and a day before, got a text saying my surgery had run out of jabs. I don't understand why they can't make appointments according to the number of shots they have - no sign of a repeat invitation either.

    I suspect the jab is saline, in which case no concern. Since no-one sensible should accept something injected to them without knowing ingredients (heroin users feel free to interject here). Which hasn't been tested, has been indemnified on those pumping the shite into your arm, go ahead,

    Gosh, you really have swallowed all that fake news, haven't you! Back here in the real world, the Pfizer vaccine has been reported as having been tested on 43,000 volunteers, a process that was followed closely by the UK's regulatory body before it was approved.

    Watch the outtakes during the end credits of Episode 6: 'My bowl awaits!' then realises the import of what she's just said.

    There are already reports of harm from the "vaccine". Easy to find away from the fake news alphabet broadcasters.

    It's everyones own personal choice whether they take the jab or not, I don't need anti's or pro's trying to sway me either way. Personally as it stands I'll be straight in for it, if theres a chance of normality coming back quicker I'm happy with any (if any) risk factor , I've had enough of things as they are and I'm only in tier 2.

    Surely cheaper to just buy the vaccine and inject it in their arms?
