I finally managed to book online for Pfizer vaccine. The only one I could get is approx 150km from us. So that’s two four hour journeys. The only one in the entire Haute Garonne for over 60’s with Pfizer. We were originally trying to book slots for both of us but in the middle of the process we lost the slot for the OH. He said as it was more urgent for me it was better to keep the slots I had.

What was bizarre was that there was no trouble getting the first appointment but it was impossible to get the second one. It’s a five step process so if you can’t get the second appointment then the process stops and won’t let you progress. I don’t understand what’s going on.
I'll bet that was Doctolib. When the last batch of RDVs was announced I jumped in straight away but by the time I had tried to get a confirmation code they had all gone. A matter of maybe half an hour. :roll:

Repeating the question that I asked on another thread:

If you manage to make a booking via Doctolib do you know what vaccine is being proposed or do you have a choice?

When we did ours it told us that it would be the Pfizer one.

I had a look outside our dept and have now managed to get the Pfizer vaccine appointment much closer to home. Once I received the confirmation I cancelled the appointments that were two hours away. Phew, relief.

I used the “Vite ma dose” website which was much easier to use than the Sante.fr site.

In Selby I received a text, "please go to here", "website address" picked the time slot I liked and bingo all done. Same all over Yorkshire.

Got an SMS from the Passport Service saying that my new passport has been sent, 2 days after they received the old one.

Had a good look at hens undercarriage after her op. The wound is nice and clean and is healing well. Last night we let her bestest friend sleep with her. She has to sleep in a small walk-in hen house as the vet wasn’t keen on her having to go up into the main hen house. Given the size of the operation last Friday she’s doing really well. Mind you she must be the most expensive chicken around here!
