I must be the youngest on here, as I seem to be the only one not to have got a date for my vaccination. emoji25.png

Its a conspiracy so I don't get a holiday I was so looking forward to from June LAST F'IN YEAR. emoji35.png

I got mine for work reasons and not for my age 🤗

Yeah, you got your jag a week early for that reason. emoji14.png

I don’t have any underlying conditions that would see me get the jab early 

Had I not got it thru work I would have to have waited until April

To be fair I wasn't expecting to get mine until April but the demographic for my GP's surgery must be heavily weighted towards the older age group.

Wonder if there's an element of an post code lottery.  My friend and his wife were at same venue, exact same time as myself, along with someone else from our street.  Like yourself, we weren't expecting jab until April..

It’s looking good, our team are now getting tested twice weekly. Fairly optimistic that I might get to Austria in September for the Scotland game 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Are you confident you'll be able to travel to see Saints play in Kazhakstan in the European Conference qualifiers in July?

My wife received her vaccination on Wednesday, slight sore arm on Thursday/Friday, that apart, no other side effects.  :thumbs2

My wife, due to her profession, received her second vaccination on Monday. No side effects at all.

However, it seems that the second vaccination has been having greater side effects than the first on care home residents. The fall risk of residents and other side effects seems to be markedly increased.

I'm in the 55-60 category, so I'm not due for the vaccine for a while yet. Looks like April

Anybody who has in the past claimed to be  50 years old and has no underlying illnesses is going to wait even longer.

A doctor currently on BBC saying that theirs nothing to back up the 2nd dose has any increased side effects, in response to a question from a viewer, in fact probably less as the body will deal with it faster.

He didn't mention care home residents, I'm assuming he meant the general public.

Yeah. Just saw that.

Just going on what the care home managers in some my wife's companies homes have observed.

I'm staying away from care home issues, left a very bad taste I'm afraid. :(

ETA, aye, this sums it up for me........................

That said, the responses to the COVID-19 vaccines are highly variable. Some people don't experience any symptoms, while others have mild-to-moderate side effects, and some get more severe symptoms, experts say.

Just got my date with the syringe though I would have been happy enough to wait if the respective governments had decided teachers etc. were to take priority. I do hope the UK government are serious about giving the excess vaccines, which will be numerous, to less wealthy countries, and in tandem with giving us the protection, as this is a global issue. If the pandemic is as real a threat as the likes of WHO say then us getting the jag means diddly squat if it's still circulating and mutating.

Why?

It's absolutely right for the NHS that those most likely to get seriously ill and require months of expensive treatment because of underlying health conditions are vaccinated first.

There's absolutely no justification for putting teachers (or the police for that matter) ahead of anyone else. Those working in supermarkets have a much stronger case for needing protection.

All this is a distraction anyway. Everyone will have had their first dose within the next few months or so.

As a country we'll need to keep a reasonable amount of supplies back for booster jabs. Once we've looked after ourselves we should certainly look to help poorer countries.

I agree that it could delay everyone getting vaccinated if they had to try and find out everyone's job then categorise them accordingly. There was justification for priorities and by and large for what I can see, they got it correct.

PS, No I haven't been vaccinated yet, apparently I'm too young and healthy unlike the auld fat codgers that have been.

Discrimination that's what it is

I've to go to the Louisa Jordan on Tuesday. Anyone else had to travel outwith the town for their jag?
Rub it in why don't you.

PS if it's inconvenient and you stay for instance just round the corner from let's say the lagoon. You can ask for it to be done there, might add a week or 2 on getting done though.

Not at all, it's 10 minutes along the motorway and expressway, I just wondered how the locations are allocated.

I think one poster on here got an appointment at the LJ and phoned up and got their appointment changed to the Lagoon.
