I attended Kirkwalls Vaccination center for my 1st Covid vaccination.
I had hardly got the keys out of the ignition before I was met by a helpful Red Cross lady.
I explained I was a peedie bit early, “no problem” she said and directed me to the registration window. I was directed to the “social distanced” waiting room which was the old Skerryvore practices one—- never seen it looking like that!
A nurse came in and asked who had sat down first, there was 4 of us by that time and in I went.
The jab does na hurt a wee prick is all.
I was given an information sheet after being asked if I had any questions.
Then I had to wait 15 Mins, just like giving blood. All in all very professional and efficient.
I would encourage any folk who are offered the vaccination to absolutely take it.
There are different arrangements for other age groups. You can find more information on the NHS Orkney Facebook page.
