Groups 1 to 7 inclusive are those who can book online at the moment:

and most seem to have been sent out letters.  Presumably it will be gradually opened up to others over the weeks.

It seems unlikely that now the time between vaccination has been reduced from 6 to 3 months, IOMG despite stating they are going to do the same, I doubt they will. I’m due my booster 25 December, but obviously that’s not going to happen, but the way they are shaping up it’s unlikely to happen in January either, unless they get their act in gear.

What is this obsession with the obtuse level of bureaucracy? Letters, phone lines... 

Just make a website so people can book their times. Have a phone line for anyone who really struggles with online. Simple.

The people doing the jabbing could keep up with it. It's just the bureaucrats smothering the system as usual.

Why pointlessly over-complicate it like this? Your solution is vastly more difficult to do than you imply - as you would know if you have any experience at all of trying to implement booking systems.

Why not just give people a time to turn up?

ETA:  you'd be whining about the cost of your solution when the bill came in.

I’m in my mid 50s, so if as expected and likely based upon current performance, it’s going to be almost or more than 7 months since my second vaccination, which defeats the object of rule change by the JCVI. Also it’s rather telling the amount of people so far missing booster vaccination appointments. Perhaps they should be done last? I’m sure those who refuse to be vaccinated due to ‘principles’, and then wish to be vaccinated, will be accommodated very easily within the system, over those, who comply and obey the rules.

That has gone a bit “viral” and is a national embarrassment to be honest.

A contact in Canada had seen it last week on a local group and was pissing himself.

Is that genuine? It would have been even greater comedy gold if they had used one of Quayles press conferences.

The letter I got had a date and time to attend. No calling up.

Yes mine too , was supposed to have been last Thursday but rang them as going to be away and they rescheduled for Monday. Also on another matter had my PCR test at 9 this morning and despite them saying in correspondents it would be 24 to 48 hours results came through by 6 today. Really impressed tbh . So free to go about my business .

It’s an IOM thing to over complicate things. It’s obvious now they scrapped the airport hub that they can’t managed, especially now the rules and vaccination length of time between vaccination have changed. The age groups have changed, No doubt IOMG will be finding another piece of its portfolio to spend tens of thousands of pounds, So it’s clinically acceptable. It’s a shame they can’t use local village halls as vaccination hubs,

Does anyone know if there is anywhere I can check the serial number of a lateral flow test to see where it was issued and the status of any result?

I have staff sending a photo of a positive test, but refusing to give any more info and I think they might have just found an image online.

Google lens can’t help.

 

thanks

You tried reverse image search ? Or is that the same as google lense ?
