Yes, Mrs Hughie's 2nd dose is in 12 weeks. I should get my first one around the 17th.

In Germany it depends on the vaccine. BioNTech/Pfitzer 4-6 weeks, Astra Zeneca 3 months. The delivery times are the reason for the difference.

Thats, correct Netta

Boney, Actually surprised the doctor seen you... its almost impossible to get an appointment with a doctor in England. For example i phoned the surgery as i expected i had Arthur- Itus last month. Doctor phoned me back and said what do you want physio or pain relief (ie ) ibuprofen. It would be easier to break into a bank than to gain access to a surgery.
Brian, we find it quite easy to see our GPs here. We can book an appointment online or by telephone.
I usually do an online booking then phone when they open to see if I can get an earlier app.
Because Bob has a autoimmune condition his GP will usually fit him in if I ask.
We’re the same here in Ayr Netta - we can usually get a face to face with a doctor within 2 days, phone appointment within 4 hours.

Just discovered the reason for the different times between the first and second vaccinations. Astrazeneca -78 days. Pfizer- 21 days. Moderna -28 days. Glad I had one of the faster ones!

Asked when I was waiting for Bob at the doctors today and apparently 2nd dose of AstraZenaca can be given sooner than 12 weeks but the powers that be have decided you get a better result at 12 weeks.
So guess we will wait the twelve weeks

My misses recieved a text today to book an appointment for her second jab. As with the first one she has to attend the same venue...which is quite far from home- No choice.

When i go for my second jab later this month i just need to nip down the road.
Maybe its because I'm Scottish :P
