It was my turn today for the Covid 19 Vaccination, I had previously been sent a text and had requested my slot by filling in an online form.
The vaccination was at Bishop’s Stortford Football Club, a place I am getting to know well after having my flu jab here and also bringing my mum for her vaccination.
There was a queue to get in and someone checked our details. Then in the door and we were asked to clean our hands and of course we were wearing masks 😷.
Another short queue and I was sent to booth number 3 and once again my details were checked along with more detailed questions and one around had I ever had a reaction to medication?
I answered that I had a reaction to chemotherapy and so a doctor was called, he was briefed and told me to wait for 15 mins after the injection to see if there was a reaction.
And then I was told that I would be having the AstraZeneca jab and I was asked which arm I would like it in.
I opted for my left arm and then the injection was done, quick and painlessly.
I made my way to the waiting area and watch as people moved in and out. Overall it looked like a pretty slick operation.
My 15 minutes were up and I headed out, there were less people waiting to go in, I guess they close for a lunch break?
They certainly deserve it.
Well done all.
