Covid 19 Vaccine
« on: December 09, 2020, 13:26 »
This is surely a wonderful way forward now in the fight against this pandemic.

However, IMO, it would be a good idea to give it promptly to GP's  then perhaps we could get a Doctors appointment other than by phone in 4 weeks time !!!!   Mrs Bouquet

I'm sure they will be one of the front-line people to have this so don't worry.

   71 year old overweight diabetic with osteoarthritis,  Why haven't I been called?   

But then the side effects are still not fully understood.  I don't want to stand up in three weeks time and my bum falls off!

Cheers,  Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

You will only be called when the distribution and call up systems are worked out, Tony.  If you were on the shielding list for the first lockdown you would be one of the first called.

Hi Tony
Can't help with your vaccine but I strongly recommend The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet by Dr Michael Mosely
It's tough but not too tough and you can reverse Type 2 diabetes, lose weight and feel loads better. Might even help your osteoarthritis symptoms too. My blood sugars went from "Have you made a will, here's a pen" to the normal range very quickly with the help of this book.
Best of luck
John

I'm not t the forefront of getting the vaccine as I'm still in tier 4 till 21st of this month. However having no health risks I'll just settle for the 2nd knee replacement I've been offered on December 23rd.

Good luck!

Getting vaccines into people is going to be a huge task - we're hoping to get it by April but there are about 5 million in the queue before us. And rightly so  ;)

Even when vaccinated if it's 95% effective it will be best to be mindful of the risk.

It will take time for vaccines to be made and the 2 American ones are very expensive compared to the British one. All have to be approved, with 2 doses per vaccine. 6 variants of Sars and how much will other countries buy and how much will people have to pay to get it in some countries.
We are going to remain vulnerable for some time yet.

Countries have already put aside money for 3rd world countries to provide the vaccines for them

I think that comes under 'enlightened self-interest' - lest the developed world becomes an island of health in a sea of illness. Great as it is to have a vaccine, the ultra-cold requirements present a huge challenge especially to countries that have problems with power infrastructure etc.
I expect we'll see the less demanding vaccines being approved soon now which will make it much easier to inoculate people in volume.

@Kleftiwallah; -
You wont be getting called until well into spring. 70-80 year olds and "shielding" people are in the second group. The first is the over 80s, those in care homes and workers at care homes. There are more people in that first group than can be done with all the Pfizer vaccines ordered so you'll be waiting for the Oxford one to be rolled out most likely.

I may have missed it? But, is anybody aware of the group vaccination scheduling? Currently, people of Group 1 conditions are being vaccinated. When does the vaccination of people with Group 2 conditions begin? After all Group 1 people have had their 2nd vaccination? And then dates for people within the remaining groups? I have a generic text from my local surgery "don't contact us, we will contact you". Fair enough. But, surely there is a vaccination scheduling somewhere? Thanks.
