This will be a lengthy post. I received a text from NHS this morning for my 87 year old CEV husband to have his booster jab. I am his full time and only carer. I rang 119 and spoke to a very pleasant lady who informed me, after I asked her, that I could NOT be given the booster jab together with my husband. She advised that I speak with our Surgery. I sent them an email. The response was short and sweet: “Unfortunately this new service of the COVID booster is out of our control and we are not dealing with this I’m afraid”.IS this the truth??? How can I ascertain that my Surgery is in fact giving me the correct information?? Can anybody answer me this question please???
Copied and pasted from the Gov’t website : NOTE THE GRAMMAR HERE! “MAY” is hypothetical! “May”. Why “May”??? I qualify for all 4 points stated below.
You may be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine if any of the following apply:
you are a main carer for someone at high risk from COVID-19
your GP record shows you are a carer
you get a Carer’s Allowance or other support following an assessment by your local authority" This is the link Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine - NHS
Now. 1)If yours truly becomes ill, WHO will care for my vulnerable husband? 2) Why on earth is it so darned difficult to grasp this? 3) I come under category 4.
I was told this by my Surgery way back but made such a fuss that an appointment WAS FOUND for me! I too was double vaccinated pretty quickly.
That is my rant everyone!
I am NOT a happy bunny! The whole system is shambolic.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
