Default Vaccination-good news.

Im 84 yold-Got a message on my mobile frim the GP surgery telling me to book my jab. As I dont have a iPhone or similar the link wouldnt work. Any way the good news is I have an appt. for 8.40.a.m. Friday 15th January at my GP which is 5 minutes walk. Just waiting for a contact about my wife 81yold. She has COPD but they must be doing it by age, makes sense because its simple. Chris.S.

That is good news Chris.

As to the progression through the age ranks etc, I guess there will be variations throughout the country depending on how many doses are doled out to each place that's doing vaccinations and the numbers and age profiles etc that they have to deal with.

I know that Mrs SDA's best friend, who has cancer and is 55, has been put in the same vaccine category as me at age 73.

Supposed to be age and underlying conditions. I have no idea what category I'm in as there's no clue how the underlying conditions (of which I have several!) affect it.

These conditions things seem a bit hit and miss.

Mrs SDA got a shielding letter in Lockdown 1 and the only reason we could think she got it was because she had a lung problem which resolved itself 12 years before.

On the other hand, me, with just one, rather dodgy, kidney and a 'stiff' heart never heard a thing.

My wife 84 with asthma had hers last Thursday, me 87 with no problems had mine this morning.
It reminded me of the days of polio in 50/60s, when we all queued up for the jab. Don't remember any appointments we just turned up and got the jab. Don't think they even took our names.

Wouldn't be happy to be offered the Chinese vaccine. Trial in Brasil showed it to be only 50.4% effective That's not a vaccination its a lottery!
