Robert Brown on missing vaccine appointments

Commenting on reports that pensioners had missed vital vaccinations, Rutherglen South Liberal Democrat Councillor Robert Brown said

"It is highly regrettable when people are missed off for the vaccine appointment - and very worrying, particularly for older people with a health condition. 


On the whole the vaccination programme seems to have gone well considering the very large numbers of people involved - certainly much better than the autumn flu vaccine.
It is though disappointing when people have to go round in circles like this. Whilst there will inevitably be occasional mistakes and oversights due to human error and circumstance, it is vital there is a clear route to check and sort things out. I have written to the Health Board asking them to make sure that all points of contact for people are properly advised of the arrangements and how to sort out appointment problems."
