Today Ruth and I helped out on the very long morning shift at the Blackbird Leys Health Centre. Today 50 million doses were provided in England!
The day started with a briefing where staff were informed of the new blood clot rates in the 30-39 year old age range for the AZ vaccine. A change from 4 in a million to 1 in 100,000! For people taking their second dose of the AZ vaccine, there are only 7 cases of clots in the millions and millions of doses that have been given out already - this made me feel better as I was to have my second dose that day!
I ran around making the teas and coffees and handing out biscuits. Along with gifts of Mr Kipling and kit kats from patients. Ruth spent the shift doing admin in one of the vaccination rooms.
