I’ve plenty of experience do you think they’ll want me?
Used to do around 4000 vaccines a year. 300/ hr for sheep and around 50/ hour for cattle.
Can’t understand why they don’t get everyone to stand socially distanced along a road with sleeve rolled up and some one walks down and jags them.
Flu vaccine this year was a socially distanced game of musical chairs moving through the system. Because the vaccinator is stationary so much time is lost shepherding people. I’d guess the system was no faster than 30-40 people/ hr.
And taking 3 full time people to achieve it. :(

I see the UK is now allowing mixing vaccines! 1st and 2nd shorts from different manufacturers; or maybe they mean mixing vials and injecting the mixture (sound even more questionable to me).

Not been told which one. I'll take either.


I got the Pfizer jab. At the Louisa Jordan temp hosp in Glasgow today . Very efficient. Plenty stewards sending people round the one way system. Names checked against a list on the way in. The nurse doing the jab brought my details up on a tablet. Only around 5 minutes in a queue. I arrived a bit early due to train times and was back out the door before my appt time.

It looks like the government has at last seen sense. They are using the NHS, pharmacists, local public health and the military. They don't appear to have recruited one of their mates to set up a business to do it this time.

Jab?

In Glasgow, is it the norm?

I know what people mean when they say jab but until just now never known a Scotsman use it. ( I’ve always assumed you were born in Glasgow but perhaps I’m wrong on that)
Every farmer, vet, nurse, doctor I know will say jag. ( jag I believe is Scots for prick)

today's interesting factoid: vets can practice on humans, but doctors can't practice as a vetinary - confirm, anyone?
today's balmy factoid: some folks are turning down the Pfizer, in favour of waiting for the home-grown jobbie - me, I'll take whatever's offered thanks, on the basis that "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"...

True. Vets I believe do more studying than doctors.

Having said that I was 1400 foot up a hillside with a vet, a colleague, and a prolapsed cow. While working with the cow the colleague was badly trampled by the cow. No phone signal and three miles from the nearest house. The vet wasn’t too keen to be left with the injured man while I went to get help. I reminded him he was more qualified than I was. :lol:

I’d wait and see what this "new National booking system" actually is before getting too excited.

It might just depend on what you mean by "practice", but basically "No".

Do you mean length of initial training up to qualification or something else?

I thought their university courses were longer to qualify.

Edit: Google I think this clears it up A spokeswoman for the British Veterinary Association pointed out that animals could not give their permission to have someone other than a vet treating them, whereas vets could treat humans, if the patients agreed.
