The end in sight ?…..

Its a year now since pretty much the whole world went into ‘lock down’ and little did I know how much it would also affect my traveling and working plans. So many visits were scheduled to colleagues and to congresses all over Europe and it (pretty much) all came to nothing….or at least it turned out very differently….

Well, upon my return to the UK after over 3 months in Bavaria, I found an invitation for my SARS CoV 2 vaccination in the letterbox.

Welcome home !…….

Right after finishing my 10 days of self isolation (bearable with a lot of online consultations and with a fair amount of decorating work in the house) I was heading as so often before to Heathrow Airport, but this time not to catch a flight, but to stay on the ground to get my first jab.

Less than 200m away from the pretty empty runway, the super efficient NHS vaccination machine was in full swing.

OK, no British event without a little bit of queuing……

But within 20 minutes flat, I as well had my first dose of a British-Swedish quality product (well, time will tell……) in my arm

and I was on my way home again.

Fingers crossed that this will truly mark the end of the pandemic, because I think that there are more stories to be told and more places to be seen in 2021 and beyond…….

I am a veterinary surgeon with a German and Norwegian educational background. I have been the founder and for over 20 years I have been the senior veterinarian at the Virginia Water Veterinary Clinic in Surrey, England. When starting this blog I was also the President of FECAVA, the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations. In the summer of 2019 I left my clinic to work as an international locum and clinical advisor. I am interested in all aspects of clinical companion animal medicine, in endurance sports and in traveling and meeting people with and without their pets and especially in sharing my knowledge with colleagues in other parts of Europe and the World.
