Another autistic needlephobe here. I was really impressed with how they handled things at the place I went to.Aged 44 and booked mine this morning
I have n**dle phobia, autism and anxiety disorder plus the closest vaccine centre is 40 miles away so should be an interesting appointment on Friday but I'm not letting any of that put me off!
They let my flatmate come in with me for support, gave me an experienced nurse and the quietest corner to have my jab in and let me use my various pain coping strategies (chewing sweets, listening to loud music) with no pressure to be speedy! Then they let me rest and managed to get me talking about my animals (always calms me down) for a while until I was calm enough to walk out comfortably. ^^'
I'm not anxious about appointment 2 (late May) any more!
