An elderly couple from Radford were told they have to go to Derbyshire to get the vaccine done as there were no appointments available to book in Nottingham.
Allwyne, 75, and David Spottiswoode, 80, rang to book an appointment yesterday afternoon, January 27.
Over the phone, they were told there was no local availability in Nottingham at the time, and the nearest option would be Derbyshire.
Mr and Mrs Spottiswoode were left ‘very distressed’, as they are both considered high risk.
Their youngest daughter Ruthe Sawyer, of Sherwood, 32, said: “My parents were really distressed yesterday.
“They have been wanting this vaccine for a long time as they have been isolated and scared during the pandemic.
