For us, they intend to use the local large hall and free parking for those being vaccinated.  Volunteers to  be recruited to serve as stewards/marshalls.  Just announced on local town facebook page.

That sounds ideal.

The neighbour of a friend of mine was contacted by phone last week offering her an appointment with only one hour's notice. The problem was that it was at a large hospital 40 miles from where she lives. She doesn't drive and even if she did the journey would take just over an hour, without counting time needed for parking. She had to decline the appointment as there was no way she could get there in time.

Will she now be recorded as refusing the vaccination? Or will she be offered another (and more realistically achievable) appointment?

Was that a genuine call Lizzie?

This is from our local site and seems to indicate that there would be room to negotiate a time:

Youíll be called by a staff member from a number starting ****
The caller will identify themselves and say they are calling on behalf of your GP and they are getting in touch about booking an appointment for a Coronavirus vaccine.
The caller will then offer dates and times for them to attend clinic. They will also give the location of the site where you will receive it. This may not be your usual health surgery.
Youíll also be given the time, date and location for the second dose of the vaccination if you are receiving the Pfizer vaccination. It is vital, you return and keep your second appointment 21 days later.
The callers booking vaccinations will not ask for any other personal details other than asking you to confirm your name. They certainly will not ask for any money (we have already been alerted to possible phone scams with callers asking for payment for access to vaccinations).

My friend thought it was genuine, and certainly no money was asked for.

Your friendís own medical practice would hopefully give the best advice. It seems most unreasonable to expect a response with such a limited appointment.

Iím going to answer my own question. 

Their surgery decided to announce via Facebook late on Friday that they would start taking bookings for appointments from Monday.  My parents donít Ďdoí Facebook like many of their generation.

Fortunately I spotted it, they get their 1st shot on Thursday.

That's appalling, relying on facebook for communication - many of us don't have an account for a plethora or reasons.
