Before heading home after our night in town, The Boy and I swung by St. Thomas’ Hospital on Westminster Bridge Road to see if the Vaccination Centre was accepting teenage walk-ins.
The staff were utterly brilliant. Once they knew about The Boy’s autism, they went above and beyond to ensure that he was rapidly moved to the front of the queue (which I estimated at 60-90 minutes wait). Action which helped The Boy to avoid heightened anxiety and/or a sensory overload.
This #autismmum is so very grateful to the wonderful humans who staff our beloved NHS.
Receiving the vaccine is the best Christmas gift you can give yourself and those you love.
