Flu vaccine | NHS test-and-trace app | Boris Johnson | Priti Patel | Broliday | Fake news
What a surprise that Boris Johnson’s promise that the flu vaccine would be available to everyone over 50 has led to unprecedented demand (GPs in England left waiting up to a month for flu vaccine supplies, 4 October). I phoned my GP to make an appointment and was told: “Ring again mid-November.” I’m 61. Let’s hope the flu virus knows to hold off until late November.
• On Tuesday, straight from the horse’s mouth, an NHS nurse told me that they had been told to turn off the NHS test-and-trace app while in the hospital (GSK tells UK staff: turn off Covid test-and-trace app while at work, 6 October). I’m staying with Prof Tim Spector’s Covid-19 app. How valid is the NHS app?
