    Got my latest one last week. Tends to make my arm sore, but that's much easier than actually having pneumonia!

    Hospital consultant recommended I have the vaccination. Unfortunately my gp surgery   keep telling me there’s a national shortage! Been waiting since the end of August!

    Seeing that CrimsonCrow has recently had it, i will be contacting the surgery first thing this morning

      The shot is very important plus flu shot.     Are you in the states.    Because we don’t have a shortage.        Our pharmacy also give shots       Please get them

      Am in the UK, where I’ve been told by both surgery and hospital there’s a national shortage. 

      I had a drs appointment yesterday for an unrelated problem. Dr wanted to know why I’d not bothered having the vaccine!

      Yes there is a national shortage for routine shots, but for a patient with bx they can request and order it. Unfortunately the person who does the ordering is on holiday for two weeks and no one else, drs included can order it!!
