Yes, it's under that umbrella :) My great nephew in his early 20s also works in Specsavers and got his vaccination in late January. His official invitation text quoted the category as "Health and Social Care worker" and he had to take proof of employment with him. He was the first one in my entire extended family to be jabbed!


So he in theory was the young "Guinea pig" (meant nicely):)

As we're all part of this big experiment that's got to be a good thing in my book.

Hopefully brings us all a little closer to some freedom, even if it's cautious and still restrictive to start with🤞👍


Marie I still think we have a long way to go sadly.Do you think this too?

Funny. There is a vac centre 3 miles down the road from me but Ive been offered a jab 20 miles away!
Think I will leave it a couple of weeks and see if things change

I agree with Steve... get it done! In that 2 weeks, your protection will have kicked in nicely :)
Plus I'd love such a great excuse to go for a day out somewhere 20 miles away 😊

Daughter got her text today....she's only 37 without any underlying conditions. The only thing I can think that has triggered the call is that she had gestational diabetes. Wonder if key words are being used as a trigger, Her husband, 3 years older with blood pressure and working for Royal mail hasn't heard anything.
Having had the virus, we arn't having any jaba till june/July on the advice of David's oncologist. He also said that although we would get 2 jabs we only really need one as a booster.

If one doesn't rush to book at Hub will the local centre run by local Gp contact me?
Not if your local doc surgery isn't signed up to do jabs.
I had to travel 65 miles one way for my first jab but was told that more centres are opening all the time and I should call back after my first to see if there was a closer one opening . I did call and got an appointment 15 miles away for my second jab.

Down to Cohort 9 in my local area already so jabbing 50 and over , a lot quicker than anyone expected almost makes you think did they have a shed load in stock ready from the first orders that went in some prior to approval and are releasing them slowly to look like we are accepting deliveries rather than just collecting from the stores :) :0 Just saying

Thats me 1st jab done then. In and out at the Richardson in Barnard Castle in five minutes. Im not happy though. The bloke that gave me my jab looked familiar. He said "Ah haaa! We have been expecting you Mr Dobson, Mwhahahahahaaaa". :(

First jab done on Friday.... Astra Zeneca
Very efficient and painless (didn't even notice he'd done it)
Felt fine Friday night...
Sat morning started with a sniffle and by late afternoon felt rotten like a bad cold, shivery and achey....

Sunday morning felt as right as rain Barring a arm that felt like someone had thumped me.

Roll on the next one.
