I rather suspect people will be suffering from the postcode lottery again on this one. Where I live both surgeries in the group will be vaccinating, where my daughter lives (near her 80+ year old grandparents) not one of a group of 5 practises is vaccinating?????

My Dad has just received his letter today and we've booked his appointment online for next week. All very efficient, but not local unfortunately - a 40 mile drive to the mass-vax centre at Newcastle, but the sooner he has the jab the better.
So the big centres are up and running and we can expect local centres to follow on over the following weeks and months.
I'm a young stripping so I don't expect mine till summer at best.

The main thing is to get the vulnerable vaccinated to release the current pressure on the NHS.
There is a degree of self interest in this. Should I decide to lob the bike down the road later in the year* I want a nice safe hospital bed and a full squad of nubile nurses to take care of me!

* Don't worry, this isn't on my 'to do' list.

My elderly aunt (90) got a phone call in the first week of vaccines ready, asking her to go to Drs carpark for vaccination. As she was talking to them they spotted she is housebound on her records n then said that she would have to wait for home vaccination and they would call her .... two calls later to ask what's happening ... she is still waiting for a response.

Meanwhile most of her friends (some many years younger) have had both vaccines.

I suppose it is what it is but the local medical centre is lacking somewhat in its organisation imo.

My dad had his jab yesterday and one thing they haven't been telling people is that you have to fill a form out before they give you the vaccine, Lucky for him he did have his reading glasses with him and he always carriers his own pen.
So be prepared when you're lucky enough to go for yours.

Its the H&S / litigation culture Ragnar, but good point. I'll make me Dad takes his reading glasses.
It's the little things like this that can really colour someone's impression of a service, and unfortunately it's not something the NHS is particularly good at.

Bleeping nora, apparently my age group, and with medical issues, aren't getting the vaccine until the AUTUMN. Just in time for pigging winter.

I think you need to change your info sources Sandi. Look up the covid vaccine calculator OMNI.

They said, all adults will be vaccinated by September, that is the aim. Roll out has started for the over 70s and health care workers. I received my invite this morning and booked in this afternoon

I'll second that sentiment Ragnar. I'm in group 6 so might be getting my first jab in April. We'll have to wait and see.....

Guess it might-be the site Sandi, but I suspect it's more down to previous "Confusion" caused by this government.

What I THINK is the situation:- Broadly speaking, if you've been advised to shield, you're classified as clinically vulnerable.

I thought I had underlying health conditions until recently, BUT I was advised to shield.
Makes a LARGE difference!
