My mum got the jag on Tuesday. She's 75.

My dad is 74 and was shielding all last lockdown as he was told. He got his blue envelope today and his appointment is this Tuesday.

I`m in the 70-75 group and I`m going for mine tomorrow at 1.10 pm. I got my appointment letter the day after they announced they were starting to send them out. Everyone I`ve spoken to who is eligible has had their jag or has an appointment.

Latest reports are that about 3 in 1000 experience side effects which is fairly typical of other vaccines and these effects are mild and similar to other vaccines such as the flu vaccine.

Correct me if I`m wrong here, but I`m not seeing widespread reports of people dropping in the streets after being vaccinated.
Have I missed them?
Moreover, I seem to be seeing the vast majority of people jumping at the chance of getting "the jab" when offered......uptake is high.

Even if the uptake in lower age groups is slightly slower, there is still lots to be optimistic about. The most important thing was always going to be reducing the risk to the elderly and other medically vulnerable groups. The progress so far, and in the coming weeks, should go a long way to achieving that.

Got my blue envelope this morning. 19th Feb at the imaginatively titled East Church in Tescoland.

Eta. There's nothing to advise what you should do if you don't want to receive the vaccine. Would it not make sense to do so? If I decided not to go, I could let them know and they could give my time slot to someone else.

I saw info for can't make it and rearrange it, but not for declining it. I'm getting it in any case, so doesn't apply to me. I didn't see anything asking me to confirm that I will be attending, so I take it there's no need?

My mum got her envelope last week inviting her for her first jag on the 11th February but she got hers done the first week in January. Phoned the number on the letter, the girl who answered was very pleasant however she didn’t know how to cancel an appointment and kept asking my mum if she was sure she’d already had her first dose! Mum’s 85 this year so comes under the pre 5th February deadline (which was met). A mix up somewhere and she’s probably not the only one, concerning if that’s a raft of appointments allocated to folk who won’t turn up as they’ve already had their first jag.

Or more concerning is that someone may turn up thinking it is for second jab and actually receive it.
They may get a different vaccine way before 12 week gap.
There may be serious implications for this especially if that person is fragile anyway.

Might be an idea to alert someone more senior than you have so they can get to the bottom of it and prevent this potential risk.

Yes, I’d agree it’s a bit concerning. Although to be fair it was clear on the letter the appointment was for a first dose. My mum already has her appointment for the second jag as this was given at the time of the first.

It isn’t just Fife either as I’ve read of the same thing happening in other health board areas.

Plenty of reports of nursing home outbreaks after the jab.

I'm getting it printed on a t-shirt right now...😂

My understanding is there will be no mixing of vaccines unless it's unavoidable. So if you got Pfizer first time then you get Pfizer second time.

My further understanding is that the calls are handled by the equivalent of MGT (if that still exists) so they probably only have limited records rather than access to the full patient record.

I was just saying that in the scenario where there was a mix up and letter sent for first jab to someone who already have it then there is the potential they gey a different vaccine at an earlier time than they should be getting second jab.

It certainly isn't what should be happening but there does seem to be some error in someone getting a letter who has already been vaccinated.

I don't know how it's working but the person administering it will be updating your record based on your CHI number. I'd assume it would show up if someone had already had a dose.

If we could all just get to grips with using the internet it would be a hell of a lot easier!

Can anyone who's had the jag tell me how much time they spent in the vaccination centre altogether? There's no indication given in the letter.

I fondly imagined I'd arrive a maximum of 5 mins before my appointment and be on my way 5 mins after it. A friend of mine told me he spent a total of 40 mins at the East Church in Tescoland, last night as the snow came down and he was slightly concerned about driving home in it.

NHS Fife have advised that anyone unable to attend for vaccination due to adverse weather do not need to take any action. Another appointment will be automatically generated.

I believe that just like the flu' jag you are asked to wait for 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine before you leave; to make sure you are not drowsy/ have an immediate reaction.

The 15 minutes is to monitor for an allergic reaction. I think the recommendation is to extend it to 30 minutes for anyone who has a history of allergic reactions to vaccines or medicine.

It is probably a bit annoying and boring to sit around waiting for 15 minutes, but if you are one of the (very) unlucky people that have a reaction then the vaccination centre is the best place to be when it happens.

Probably a daft question but we keep getting headlines about all adults in the UK will be getting the vaccine by 31st July (most recent instance) & over 50’s by 15th April according to the PM’s plan but Nicola Sturgeon tells us this week the programme is slowing down owing to supply.

So for Scotland which is it? Surely they would be included in an all UK adults statement but I’ve not seen anything about how lost momentum would be regained

the Scottish supply only slowing down for last week and this week more than likely then its due to ramp rite back up to more than what it was, which they have explained in the last 10 days or so since it was 1st announced it would lower numbers for a week or 2
