One jab down, one to go.
Both Mick and I received texts last week advising us that we were able to book coronavirus vaccinations. We went to our local surgery yesterday for the first of two jabs, the second one is in eleven weeks time.
It was so well organised, volunteers were taking us in through one door, showing us into the doctor and then afterwards, other volunteers showed us into a room where we had to wait for fifteen minutes as Mick was driving. It was all clearly marked and socially distanced, and as each person left the waiting room, a volunteer would sanitise the chair which had just been vacated. We left through a different door so it was all one way traffic.
We both went to bed feeling fine, though Mick felt a bit unwell during the night so he got up and took some paracetamol. This morning we both feel a little heavy headed and my arm aches a bit, but no other nasty side effects.
I'm very surprised at how quickly they're getting everyone vaccinated. We weren't expecting to have our jabs until the end of April so they're definitely ahead of schedule.
Let's hope there's light at the end of the tunnel now.
