Friend of mine got their first dose of the AZ vaccine in City Hall today. No delays in, jabbed, 15 mins waiting period, and out. Said all booths were up and running and lots of people about.

Is AZ the only one given out in both City Hall and PUC?

I don’t know.
On the vaccination cards now they have QR Codes and the initials AZ as opposed to hand written batch numbers and manufactures name that were on them previously and AFAIK people can’t choose which one they get. So on that front, and I’m only guessing here, it’s whatever one is available at that moment to the vaccinator and not for the person getting the jab to decide

I have a family member with a text from a mobile number about city hall vaccine appointment. No idea who it's from asking for a yes or no. Is this how it is being rolled out? You'd think they could spread that news on radio / TV ads make sure people know a text will come.... If it doesn't turn out to be real they will be so disappointed..

The ones I've saw require the person to text back Y or N

My mother got a text first from CUH, then a text from a mobile number for to attend at City Hall for the vaccine but she was nervous and sick so could not attend which was texted back and then she was telephoned back

What is the communication method if a person doesn't have a mobile phone? Where does this database of numbers sit? Is it with the GP?

This is only an assumption but once the registration portal opens next week it will fall on the person looking to get the vaccine to register their own details and then that should help to eliminate double bookings. I’d guess somewhere on it they’ll insert a warning box saying tick method of contact, phone,text,email

I genuinely can't deal with the vaccine threat in the covid forum. So I'm gonna ask in here, is there a website where one can register to get the vaccine? I have looked around and I know there is one for health care workers, but that's all I'm seeing

Not yet. Plan is to have something before April 19th. At the moment, everything's being done through GPs so you'd need to be registered with one to be contacted.

In fairness it's pretty slick in City Hall, I got a call asking me if I could come in earlier than my appointment as they had capacity. Really trying to get people through as fast as they can

Great news. it's like an old locomotive where it takes a while to get the wheels moving but once it does it'll be smoooooth with the odd bump along the way.
