Do you know anyone that has gotten the COVID jab yet?

I heard today that the UK has started to distribute the COVID jab.  [None for us here yet]

Do you know anyone that has gotten the jab yet? How did it go?
Please stay safe!  Wear a mask, and observe social distancing!

They are only giving it to the very old and vulnerable to start with.  Fortunately non of my cronies fall into that category.  I think the problem will be making sure everyone gets the second dose in the 2 week time frame.

No nobody I know, it was on the news all day, theyíve put out a numbered plan of what category you fall into & im in 7 I think, due to my age & no health issues ( good ), my hubby will be in 5 for the same reasons. So I reckon itíll probably be late summer before I get jabbed. Iím hoping Iíll get offered a flu jab this year too. I used to get a flu jab when I was at work (Nhs) but not since I took early retirement. Hubby has had a letter for one but is ignoring it, for a very intelligent man he can be very stupid at times :wub:

It only started being used yesterday, SP.

The first person to be vaccinated outside of a trial was 90 year old Margaret Keenan in Coventry.

The second person was 81 year old William Shakespeare from Warwickshire...
yes, really  -  (this is Britain)  :D

I think I saw them both on television last night.  I believe Mr. Shakespeare was 'suffering the slings and hypodermics of outrageous fortune, and extending his arm against a sea of troubles, And by opposing ending the virus'.  I think Ms. Keenan was doing the same!

Hopefully they'll be able to start inoculating people in the USA and EU soon with the Pfizer vaccine. I don't think the room temp. vaccine jabs will be far behind.  :)

According to that calculator there are about 12,000,000 ahead of me in the queue. (Your call is important to us, please hold)
I might get done by March but I'm still betting May.

The calc assumes a readily available supply for all who want a 'jab'. Without other vaccines being approved I think that will be unlikely. The assumed numbers per week (1m) are probably achievable; I think around 15m flu jabs are given in 4 mths. On a related theme I saw some numbers for the USA a day or so ago: it will likely take till around October over there to reach a level of vaccination to achieve 'herd' immunity.
PS I'm a couple of months after you so have invested in a bigger flask to see me through while I queue up.
