Typical widnes experience

September 18, 2021
I've not bothered with vaccine but thought I should prorect my family and go for a jab ?? I guess there working from home like HBC are because this place is CLOSED!!

Extremely well organised and safe.

As a trained nurse I know they should not have already drawn up my vaccination before I got to the station. Apart from that it was ok, but strange how I was consented but as I was there guess that was ok. But people vaccinating should follow the rules.

good quick service

Excellent service, so well organised

I had an appointment booked, walked into the stadium, no queue, went forwarded for vaccination by a very pleasant nurse. Painless and easy. Waited the 15 minutes and then home. Given an appointment for 11 weeks later and had the same experience. Well done to all working there for giving their time and expertise to get this done

Wrongly recorded as having had Pfizer vaccine

May 13, 2021
I attended Widnes Stadium for second covid vaccine following call from GP surgery. Due to masks I nearly missed the word 'Pfizer' from the person checking my details, so came very close to having the wrong vaccine. I was advised to return at 10.30am next day which I did. Whilst waiting outside a woman stopped her car and asked if I was there for the vaccine then told me they didn't open until 12 noon. I told her I had been the previous day and been advised to return at 10.30am that day, she said she had been told the same. I returned at 12 but given the size of the queue I left.
I then went to Appleton Vaccine Centre where they told me I wasn't due for my second vaccine for another 2 weeks, which begs the question "Why did I get the call for an appointment from my GP surgery?"
Just one error after another which would have been very stressful if I had mobility issues.

Not as good as first jab

Staff looked tired and frazzled.
Had to wait in a queue and felt other people not far enough away from me
Thankful for being vaccinated but worried about the staff and how tired they clearly are.
