I donít think dates have been fixed.  It all depends on supply and cold chain arrangements.

This priority list is as follows:

1  residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
2  all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
3  all those 75 years of age and over
4  all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals[footnote 1]
5  all those 65 years of age and over
6  all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
7  all those 60 years of age and over
8  all those 55 years of age and over
9  all those 50 years of age and over
It is estimated that taken together, these groups represent around 99% of preventable mortality from COVID-19.

Thanks for that Mum.    I won't rush for my coat just yet then.  But I think it sounds about right.  Mrs B

It is also a 2 dose vaccine, between 3 and 4 weeks apart.
Only the American vaccines need ultra cold, so England have bought less of these.

I'm not at 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
Good luck with that Christine i've had both mine done and haven't looked back, what a day to do it before Christmas have a good one.  :)
Thanks MrsPea - as not up for vaccine a new knee will do just fine. It'll keep me at home and out of harm's way for a bit.

I know they've a general plan - frontline staff, oldest, carehome residents etc. but a lot is going to depend on which vaccine(s) are approved and production rates. Fridge stored Oxford vaccine will be a lot easier than super-cold Pfizer vaccine. If it's approved, if they can make enough etc. Too many variables to plan, so it's all guesswork.

800,000 doses arrived = 400,000 vaccinations which is about 0.6% of the priority group (6.7million?)

We're both 65 to 70 group and don't expect to get called until April. if we're lucky.Hang tough.. the cavalry isn't here yet :)

Countries have already Ďput asideí 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.

Itís nothing new, richer countries have always paid for the majority of the  vaccinations in 3rd world countries

Thatís the truth of it.  I hope the majority of people continue to follow ĎCovid safeí guidelines until vaccination brings the risk factors down.  We may never be free of it but with vaccination we may live with it.

They've set up a vaccination hub about 3 miles away from us.  Our neighbours, who have health reasons, have an appointment for next week.  Things are looking up  :)

It will be a slow process, because as the first group have all had their first vaccine, it will be time for their second one.  After that they can start on group 2, and then they will be done, but due their second one.  I think, as many have said already,  due care and caution still has to be observed, maybe thats even after an innoculation.     I have never been able to understand all this air-kissing anyway.  :unsure:  Mrs B

We have just been told by our gov body that we will be phase1, a tad nervous as I was hoping for phase 8 based on age.
