Just got this from the surgery... So all you lot bragging about getting a jab think of us in Norfolk !

About the only folk who even have a chance are medical staff ( quite rightly )

COVID-19 Vaccinations​

The COVID-19 vaccination is not yet available for any patients. We are unable to tell you when the vaccination will be available.
The NHS will start giving the coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is available.

Please do not contact your GP Practice to request a COVID-19 vaccine. You will be contacted when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.

The vaccine will be offered to people who are most at risk from coronavirus, before being offered more widely.

Over the coming days we expect to find out more about who the vaccine will be offered to first and how this will happen.

I had to have my 3 monthly INR blood test this morning. (System works so much better in lockdown).... Anyway, I raised the question of vaccine given how many I have been taking to central vaccination centres.

Apparently my surgery is currently dealing with groups 1 - 4 which are all the older generation and older generation with underlying health issues, and they are taking patients from other surgeries.

That accounts for over 1,000 people on their own books plus another 2,000+ from the other surgeries apparently.

So the nurse looked at the screen and told me that I am in group 6 and based on current figures, I should have my first jab towards the end of February based on current turnover..

The Mrs is probably somewhere down around group 9 or 10 and it could be March or April before she gets hers.

My local surgery hasn't yet started vaccinating anyone. The usual message is on their web site about not contacting the surgery and if you phone them, as I had to last week, there is a 4 minute message about not contacting them for anything other than emergency appointments, unless it's a medical emergency, in which case dial 999.

Our nearest Vaccination centire is smack bang in the middle of one of the worst Covid hotspots in the country

I'm still not having it.
I'm working on the principle that, it's only going to allegedly protecting others from yourself. So...if every other swinging cock womble has this bogus jab, then i'm going to be covered anyway.:icon_popcorn:

I did ask the question what DOES it do as it does not stop you getting cv nor does it stop you passing it on .. The answer from my tame md was it stops you dieing !
I said for how long as at 70 it would be nice to look forward to another 70 years..

Standard message from Practice's to stop people mithering them and to let them get on with dealing with ill folks.

Thats as maybe, but I know they have not had any delivered.. They sent the staff to the other local surgery to get jabbed

Let's keep a sense of perspective around this - as of last night 2.6m jabs had been administered into 2.3m people. Remarkable.

Seven mass jabbing centres were opened yesterday and the daily rate is accelerating rapidly.

The availability will trickle down to local non-GP venues in coming weeks. The plan is in the public domain.

It can't all happen at once and the priority is to get as many jabs into as many arms in the highest risk categories - hence the seven mass jabbing centres - as quickly as possible.

I think the latest info is everyone over 50 being jabbed by May (at least those who want one). With asthma, T2 Diabetes and a heart murmur, I may get one sooner.

I won't be turning one down when offered.

Wrong too....
Don't matter how many jabs the NHS actually do...How very American, they love statistics and fancy graphs too.
Think very long term here..an untested vaccine that's been backed by an already
feckin greedy global pharmaceutical company...millionaire investors are now
billionaires overnight, fuck knows how many other grabbing band wagon monkeys are making a profit...
Sure it works...
I ain't heard anyone guaranteeing this wonder cure...have you?
just sayin loike.

I fit into 2 of those categories and as I said in my earlier thread, they are suggesting possibly end of February.

That said, we currently have 3 or 4 major vaccine centres open (Newbury Racecourse as an example) in our area and a number of community centres and everyone I have gone to are (in relative terms) packed with people getting their jab.

This was before local surgeries started , so everyone is certainly getting geared up to administer as much as possible in my area.

You are entitled to think and believe what you want.......although to be honest I find that post quite extraordinary.

Just saying, like.
