In the Herald today:
Covid travel misery for fully-vaccinated patients missing from Scots jag database:
AN ITALIAN national living in Glasgow says she feels “trapped in a crazy bureaucratic nightmare” over failed attempts to obtain her Covid vaccination certificate.
Paola Rizzato, 48, received both of her jags in Glasgow after moving from England to Scotland with her English husband in February, but there is no record of her in the NHS Inform website which links patients to their certificates.
Paolo is not new to this Herald ‘PREMIUM’ world. On May 26th:
A woman who moved to Scotland from England says she was left “at her wit’s end” trying to chase a missing vaccine appointment through the national Covid helpline. Paola Rizzato, 48, was overlooked for her first vaccination despite registering with a GP surgery immediately after arriving in Glasgow with her husband, a healthcare worker, in March.
Here’s a thought or two:
Why didn’t she contact her GP again? Or her MSP or MP office? Why straight to the Herald?
Was it the GP’s failure rather than the helpline per se? Is the GP an in-law of Anas Sarwar or Monica Lennon’s cousin?
What percentage out of the thousands vaccinated every day are ‘overlooked?’ Less than 0.1%?
What kind of reporting is the above?
Is Paolo the Lib Dem activist who nominated a candidate in the East Sussex County Council elections in 2017? https://www.eastsussex.gov.uk/media/8235/nop-lewes.pdf
