You’re very fortunate.  My parents who are in their mid 80s both with certain health issues have not had theirs yet nor been given any indication at all of when they are likely to get it.

A phonecall on Saturday offering an appointment on Monday. That struck me as having slots to fill. I expect different areas are working to different timescales too. I seem to be attending a designated centre which has been created. Also healthcare in our area is very well organised and doesn't seem to be under great pressure. I've attended two hospital appointments recently which weren't vitally urgent.

Despite being in my mid-seventies with no health problems I am getting my first Covid injection on Monday. I'm happy to take it so that I don't end up occupying a hospital bed.

Good for you G. 8((()*/

I'm refusing the vaccine.

I'm not going to risk being stuck in the arm with a host of chemicals which could potentially kill me.

See you later all, just off out to get some more smack.

I'm not really a fan of vacines, but this one's different. My area is taking patients from a nearby big city to ease the pressure there, so if I ended up in hospital too I'd just be adding to the problem. If I can avoid doing that I feel like I should.

Moi?  Sarcastic?  Heaven Forfend!  What is it about vaccines you are not a fan of, out of interest?  Is it the fact that they prevent vast numbers of people from getting seriously ill that you object to?

I'm not keen on putting things inside me without a good reason. It began with the thalidomide affair. I was pregnant at the time and constantly sick, but I didn't go to the doctor about it. Maybe I and my daughter had a lucky escape. Then there's addiction to prescription drugs. It began with Valium and now prescribed opioids are a problem. I don't see any reason to place my trust in drug companies.  As to prevention, a couple of years ago all the flu jabs were useless because the illnesses that winter were caused by a strain which no-one had been vaccinated against.

Thalidomide was not a vaccine, neither is valium.  Flu jabs are an effective at reducing serious cases of flu and deaths on a yearly basis, vaccines save an estimated 5 million lives a year. As you don’t trust drug companies and aren’t a fan of vaccines I assume you did not have your children vaccinated?  And as someone who doesn’t trust vaccines to deliver perhaps you could explain why you think having the Covid jab will prevent youmfrom occupying a hospital bed that you’d rather someone else have?  Why not simply refuse to go to hospital where they would only pump you full of more drugs you wouldn’t approve of?

They were produced by drug companies. My children were vaccinated as there was no alarm about them in the 1960's. In fact the success of the polio vaccination was encouraging. I'm willing to risk this jab to do my bit. I've had it now and will be protected in a week to ten days. If I do get it it should be mild, I've been told.

I think that's a bit of thick persons response to pharmacology... Just ignore all the saved lives and improvements in health.. Lol

Isn’t it odd that someone who is “not keen on putting things inside me without good reason” is quite happy to inhale a toxic cocktail of chemicals numerous times a day known to cause all manner of health problems?

Anyone who sees drug producing companies as working hard to help humanity rather than turn a profit is pretty naive imo. GP's, encouraged by these companies, tend to prescribe drugs which don't always help and sometimes actually hurt their patients.

I've recently been found to have very high blood pressure and the surprise from healthcare professionals was noticeable when they asked what medicines I was taking and the answer was 'none'. It's quite unusual apparently for someone over 70 to be taking nothing at all.
