Well done to those of you who have successfully booked a vaccine appointment in response to our invitation text today – it really helps us avoid many hours on the phone. A lot of you have struggled however, and we understand that not everyone is comfortable and able to use on-line facilities. The link we sent requires you to have a Smartphone, (or be able to forward the link to someone with a smartphone who can do it for you).
You need to create a User Account on the Swiftqueue site and then you can book (the website will not know who you are without you telling it). Please note, you CANNOT use your login for prescriptions. Please don’t call the surgery as we cannot talk everyone through the process we are already busy, and if you don’t manage it we will be able to see who has not been able to book and get back to them in coming days.
If you’ve had a Swiftqueue link forwarded to you by a well-meaning friend, (possibly a healthcare worker), who has told you to use it to book in to get your vaccine ahead of others, (and you are NOT a frontline health or social care worker), then you should do two things:
If you have already booked an appointment but are not in the current high risk group please cancel it so it can be used. The link sent to you may well work – we do send them out to high risk groups who are due their vaccine but they can get passed on by those with poor standards or no conscience. Links will expire after a very short time so don’t save them.
Due to the bad weather yesterday we sent out a link to a close group of frontline workers last night for some free slots in the clinic today. Someone leaked it and we have had over 20 non-frontline workers, some who have driven for hours to get here, who have all been stopped at the door and turned away. We feel sorry for them. They were generally apologetic, and very upset with those who had sent the link to them.
The result however, is that 20 high risk people who could have been vaccinated have not been, and our programme (affecting EVERYONE further down the list) has been delayed.
THINK BEFORE YOU SEND THAT LINK
