I am terrified something will go wrong when I get my coronavirus vaccine

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN the text arrived giving me an appointment for the coronavirus vaccine, I was delighted.

I am a lady of 72 and have minor health issues. I’ve been living in fear of everything for several months.

But now I am worried a volunteer might administer the vaccine to me.

What happens if there is an oxygen bubble in the needle and they inject me with it?

Will it cause a heart attack? I am just terrified.

On TV programmes, medics always squirt a little liquid out to ensure there are no air bubbles but what if the ­volunteers don’t?

DEIDRE SAYS: That is great news you will receive the vaccine soon.

The volunteers are being recruited to help on an organisational level – administration, queuing control and car-park stewards.

The only volunteers who will be approved to give vaccines will be qualified, such as retired doctors and nurses.

There are strict instructions on administering this vaccine so they will ensure that every nurse and medical professional has been fully trained – and that includes taking any air out.

I imagine the most you will experience is a sore arm, which I hope won’t last too long.
