|Worried about 2nd vaccines for my parents|
at 18:19 19 Apr 2021
I am extremely upset and livid about my parents' doctors surgeries. My Dad has not been asked to go to his 2nd jab yet - and his 12 weeks is up tomorrow. My Mum is due the week after.
They have tried to phone, but the queues are ridiculously long. Is there a vaccine shortage here? I thought April was mainly about 2nd doses being done?
My brother in law (aged 46) has got to go to Cambridge for his on Thursday, which seems an excessively long and pricey journey on a train, but his 2nd jab is booked for Duke Street Chemist in Ipswich.
I feel so panicky about my parents though - WHY when the first jabs were given, they were not given a 2nd date? And then of course, Doctors' phonelines are chock full of worried people wondering when they will be seen, and afraid of falling through the cracks.
Any advice, good people of TWTD?

Got a text to book my vaccine at 1145 - took it up and given the choices of today, tomorrow or Sunday. I am crap at doing things with no planning, but have booked in tomorrow at Trinity Park 1045 am.
I called my doctors to check if I am ok to get my Dad to take me, even though he lives separately and it is fine to.
I am shocked at scraping in this quickly, but also relieved as having to wait until May like I thought the other day after the news on the delayed supplies, made me go on a downward spiral.
I have had palpitations,, clammy and so scared - just hope I can sleep later on!
