My husband got a text last week inviting him to make an appointment.
When he logged on to make the appointment he was told that the 'offer' had been cancelled.
I haven't received anything yet, but as I am immunocompromised I decided that I'd rather take the bull by the horns and book rather than wait for an invite, and my husband has done the same.
Consett here we come  :-X

We're both 78/9 and no letters/texts so far. It seems very disorganised this time. I think the admin structure seems to have closed down and is reopening slowly. It was excellent when it was administered locally  :(

Flu jabs with GP on 30th - earliest that they're offering.

I called back on 119 and waited 25 minutes before getting through.  Unfortunately, the agent was then unable to access my details on a database because of the high level of usage of the system, he thought.  So no progress made on the appointment ...

I had that message so rang 119. I had to wait about 15 mins and managed to get consecutive appointments for Saturday. It was a very noisy call centre.

It appears that there are few places giving the vaccine near us. We have to drive all of 3 - 4 miles!

I got that message until I tried putting my NHS number in without the spaces after the first set of three digits and the second set of three digits.  Without those spaces it worked and I could see available vaccination sessions in my area.

My husband got a text message from the gp surgery on Saturday, earliest they could do was mid October. I didnít receive  a message.
 This morning I went into the NHS app on my phone and booked mine for tomorrow morning, cancelled my husbands gp one and booked him in with with me at a local Pharmacy. Flu jabs on the 29th with Boots.

I should add we donít like to have them at the same time because of my husbands cancer drugs, last year the pharmacist agreed with me that it was wiser to have them separately but our gps  don agree.
