I was interested to read the ‘In Brief’ article written by Stroud MP Siobhan Baillie in the SNJ on 30/9/2020 urging us to get a flu jab this Winter and saying the need for vaccination against flu this year is now acute as people with flu and COVID 19 are more than twice as likely to die.

I have tried to get an appointment with 2 major pharmacies who advertise the service and also the GP but have been told that the system is overwhelmed and there is not enough vaccine (I am 58) So please Siobhan, where can we go to get it ?

Or is this another NHS/ Government cock up waiting to unfold?
