My son has cerebral palsy - very high care needs 24/7 full care. We are normally seen together at the gp surgery for our flu jabs in one appointment the first week of Oct - my son, myself and my husband. We have now been given just one appointment for My son only. After trying for 2 days constantly pressing redial to get to the flu line helper, I’ve been told we don’t qualify. We are my son’s only carers - if we get ill he is at extreme risk. I’ve tried to get an appointment privately and they are all full for months. This flu vaccination is a yearly thing - you have had all year to sort this out. I don’t have the physical time to sit pressing redial for a cancellation on all the private chemists as I’m caring for my son. He is at the upper end of risk of the flu, so why aren’t families like mine helped first like a normal year?
