JABBED

Jabbed

As promised, I’ve had my first jab, thereby giving pubs permission to open their wine gardens in 4 weeks time.#

Having booked Wakefield as it was 3 weeks quicker than Sheffield, Mrs RM was delighted to find she could combine my vaccination with a collection from Birstall IKEA. Sadly, that meant less time to explore Wakefield itself, once Mrs RM had found a comfort break and beetroot wrap and complained about the weather.

The vaccinations take place at Spectrum Health’s shiny building, just south of town on the banks of the Calder.

You get to park for free in The Hepworth Art Gallery car park, and can then wander aimlessly while you wonder where the actual jabbing gets done.

Thankfully not on the boats.

And not administered with needles like the ones in the garden.

Quite a few folk heading back to the cars looked a little queasy, but then it is Wakefield.

Having turned up half an hour ahead of the booking, Mrs RM told me off for not seeing if I could nip in early. Which I did. And I could.

I was in and out in 5 minutes, and I never felt the needle. The last time I had a jab I got a lollipop; there’s my recommendation to improve their service.

No after-effects, so I drove straight back. Mrs RM took a nice picture of me with my best frown.

You’ll be wanting a beer now !” said Mrs RM.

Beer ? Ugh. I’ll just have a glass of milk, please.

      1. I found zero arm soreness, the AZ jab was almost sensationless, but after about twelve hours I didn’t want to be anything other than slumped for a further day, with an oddly sombre malaise – “no change there” said Mrs. E…

      2. Mrs B felt a bit crap for a few hours but fine the next day. My boss, on the other hand, felt fine initially but completely poleaxed the next day.

      3. I felt the same, but the sore arm the following day, and the slight flu-like symptoms a day or so later, were a bit of a giveaway.

  1. Very glad to hear you’ve got the jab, Martin! I do have some question about the method of dispense, though. Have they been keeping that vaccine cellar-cool? πŸ˜‰

    We’re a good bit behind the UK over here, but hopefully my wife and I will get our chance soon.

  2. “Jabbed”

    Congrats!

    “Sadly, that meant less time to explore Wakefield itself, once Mrs RM had found a comfort break and beetroot wrap and complained about the weather.”

    Careful there. I believe Mrs RM was kinda hoping to get jabbed as well. πŸ˜‰

    “and can then wander aimlessly while you wonder where the actual jabbing gets done.”

    I believe it’s in the upper arm. πŸ˜‰

    “And not administered with needles like the ones in the garden.”

    They don’t look sterilised AT ALL.

    “Quite a few folk heading back to the cars looked a little queasy, but then it is Wakefield.”

    (slow golf clap)

    “I was in and out in 5 minutes, and I never felt the needle. ”

    Euphoria has that effect. πŸ™‚

    “Beer ? Ugh. I’ll just have a glass of milk, please.”

    After-effects! πŸ™‚

    Cheers

  3. Martin,
    The Astra Zenica vaccine in manufactured in Wrexham, probably in a converted mirror factory as there’s no demand for dodgy Bass mirrors with the pubs closed.
