Interesting the silence regarding the second jab seeing as they should be starting those in 3 weeks. It never crops up in any discussions I've heard.

 The paperwork that you get given when you have the AstraZeneca jab, from the manufacturers says the second dose should be received between 4 weeks to 12 weeks ideally.

What do you want hear? Everyone I know who has had their first jab has been given a date for the second. There are numbers available showing how many have had both jabs. The data is here.

A date means squat  the letter that came out first said all those with a second date  after Jan4  will now be 12 weeks or more.Don't  forget some of us were done last year'

I have put 12 weeks on the calendar. If I don't hear by then I will be contacting them. I expect that I will hear unless government policy changes.

When I booked on line, I was sent a confirmation giving the original appointment and a time, date and reference number for the second.
Different areas might work differently.

Just FYI I used the 119 number from my mobile to book appointments for my mother and her dependant man friend.


They took all their details and from the post code given they offered Elland Road FC (newly opened) as the place to go. By the end of the call I had received 2 text messages for each with both of their appointments 5 mins apart for the first jab and their second appointments the same on April 28th.
I was allowed to accompany them through the process and both were given the Astra and a card each with the batch number on.
I followed them up on the next day and neither had experienced any discomfort or side effects.


This was on the 8th Feb.

At 63 I have not been invited yet.


EDIT the one thing that was missed by the guy on the phone was to say that I.D. other than the reference numbers would be required at the appointment.

If you want confirmation as to what NUMBERS of people have received the Jab, look on Sky news freeview 233, in the top left hand corner, they scroll through the total number of cases vaccinated, then the number of those having a first jab, and then the percentage, followed by those having a second jab and then by the percentage.  O0

And   over half of those second doses would have been  for those jabbed up to the 14th Dec which took till Jan 4 which also begs the question why are some getting  one in the GAP period.Dec 4 The 12 week gap then came into play  which would mean the first of the 2nd jabs would be March 9 for those done on the 15th Dec.The units ie medical centres etc.,that started at the beginning Dec 8 are the ones withe  huge backlog. The Super Vac stations started with a clean slate so  easy to give second dates.My original Beef was nothing is mentioned about the second dose or when or how they are going to catch up.I am in the 80+ group with underlying conditions but  not particularly worried but  I know a lot in the group who are.

As the 2nd dose is supposed to be the same vaccine as the first (at the moment anyway) they will need to know which vaccine a centre will get on a particular day before they can book appointments. I doubt that they can confirm that for dates in and beyond March at this time. My 1st appointment came with 24hrs notice and I expect the same for the second dose.

The other problem that I can see is that from March they will have to give (under current rules) around 350,000 second doses a day. That is going to knock a big hole in the number of first doses that they can give unless the supply situation improves very quickly.

The letter that you get which tells you that they will book both appointments at the same time doesn't help. That is not what is happening here.

Personal experience is that we booked online on Friday, attended the appointment yesterday afternoon (Saturday) and, when leaving, were given a card with our next appointment already booked for exactly 12 weeks time (to the minute).

We were given the Pfizer vaccine and have, as yet, had no ill effects.

All those involved at the centre (Hereford County Hospital) could not have been more helpful and we were both struck by how well the whole process was orchestrated  :-))

Very impressed.

Well had mine last night - no physical letter, just a text message from the practice with a location and where to book it online, picked 6pm and attended, no waiting after having the Oxford AZ, card gives the date, type as AZ and batch number, more than likely in 12 weeks will receive a text to attend the same location at the same time.


Side effects were discussed and the most common is the sore arm - duh - you just stabbed me and injected 5-10 ml of liquid into muscle tissue, of course it's gonna hurt for a while.


The father inlaw and his male counterpart with his wifes sister have had no effects other than above, but the wifes mother and her sister had a dose of bad cold type symptoms, so I expect coming from that gene pool the wife will have a similar reaction (she turns 50 next week and apart from me winding her up  :} [size=78%] will probably get the jab under group 8/9).

Oh and today received a physical letter to compliment the email sent last week that I am classed as clinically venerable and have been added to the shielding list - doh, when I told the wifey last week - she said it's the clinically insane list you need to go on  >>:-( .
