Booked ours for a week Saturday as Mrs P currently is testing positive for Covid. She is laid up in bed after passing out and headbutting the patio this morning. Head still bleeding and a nice egg sized lump on her forehead to boot.
Mrs P will have to wait a bit longer for hers:

Sorry to hear that, it’s what happened to me last summer and I ended up in hospital for a week. Hope she feels better soon.

Got a text from my Drs yesterday- appointment booked for today at 6:30pm Shelley Road Surgery Worthing- 4th jab and flu jab done 💪
Looked like everyone was told 6:30 so a bit of queue, but went down quickly 👍

Had our covid booster and flu jabs in Shoreham today, no queuing straight in 15 minutes before our appointments.

Similar experience for my Covid and flu jabs - like a well oiled machine for both, more or less in and out in minutes, helped by a well organised system and a number of public spirited volunteers helping with admin ,queue organising and parking.

I went there earlier this week.

It's quite a little vaccine factory they've got going up there - must be quite lucrative. Also quite strange that Worthing doesn't seem to have any locations.

Was advised to book my age related booster in the last week and found no available options in Worthing! Nearest was a little pharmacy in Shoreham town centre...odd.

Had mine a couple of lunchtimes ago. Had a small interrogation over why i was there - you're under 50, explain yourself - but quiveringly pulled the brain damage tale from under my hat, and got jabbed. I feel a bit eurgh, but not too bad.

Booked at the racecourse and giving it a week (almost) from my flu jab. Missus is giving a larger gap and said if you suffer you won't get any sympathy from me! :lolol:
Had my flu jab about five minutes after my Cocid jab. No problems at all.

How did you book yours? Did you say you were vulnerable, and if so did they not ask for proof?
There is a 'I'm vulnerable' bit on the booking website you are instructed to use in the invitation email, I think you just need to show the email that invites you to book as proof if you're under 50 - I'm being pestered to book a jab myself though I'm still not entirely sure why I was flagged tbh, just assume that rather like @Meade's Ball it is due to my hospital visit a few years back...

Very sleepy after mine this morning so not as engaged in the game as I might be. Which is nice, given how it is going.

The US has rolled this out early September for all ages because people willing to get a booster is low, went and got ours early September, lots of my friends who haven't caught covid throughout the pandemic are now falling ill with it and are not getting the booster mostly due to apathy. Don't f*** around people, go get it.

On holiday in Florida and have caught covid. Not only has it impacted my very long awaited holiday but now I’ll have to wait longer for my booster.
