Earlier in the week, when we were waiting for our jabs at the medical centre, a man wandered in to the reception to make an appointment for a vaccination. I'd expected that the staff would give him a date a month or six weeks in the future. Instead he was given an appointment the following day. Now, according to this mornings radio, it's official. You can either turn up at the surgery in the evening to see if there's any vaccine left over or you can book up, whatever your age, and try for an appointment in the next 24 hours if there's a slot available.
Does this mean that the system is working to perfection ? Or, does it mean that take up of the vaccine(s) isn't what had been hoped for ?
