Same here; phone call at 11.45." We have one spare dose after our morning vacc session, can you be here within 5 minutes?"
12.00 back home having a coffee, after having Oxford AZ jab. Like you I have an open mind, there's so many contradictory opinions from the various medical experts but hey-ho, it's done now. The Doc couldn't give a date for the follow up as that was the very last dose and he doesn't know when further stocks will be forthcoming through the chaotic Scottish supply-chain.

Have had enough of MSM comparing % of over eighties vaccinated as its very disproportionate.

Suffolk has lowest percentage rate in country and is said to be lagging behind.

Suffolk has a very high number of over 80's compared to rest of country as people retire to our outstanding coast. Cities will suffer when it comes to middle aged down to mid twenries whilst rural and coastal towns will zip through them age groups.

Give us real numbers per day instead of incomparable percentages!

Hearing from nurses in Lewisham in London a number of people are not turning up for their appointments. :mad::mad:
Same here. We've had quite a few emails at work for spare vaccines. When folk know how much it costs and logistical the effort required to prepare the vaccine. You'd think they'd be able to turn up to an appointment. Had mine yesterday. All fine apart from a really achey arm.

Ir's inevitable that when rolling out a vaccination program as large as this that there will be local variations. It's not surprising that London has the lower uptake - less elderly people, more people in groups who aren't so keen on the vaccine and more difficult travel logistics.

However, as a country we just need to crack on where we can. As long as we are not under-resourcing London then we shouldn't disrupt the bits that are working in order to put a disproportionate effort elsewhere. As usual Khan is taking every opportunity to turn this into a political matter rather than focussing on the welfare of his electorate.

The latest analysis from Israel shows the impact of the vaccine on the over 60s. Look at the difference in case numbers in the vaccine group vs the non-vaccine group. It looks like it take a little time to kick in (we know it take a while to boost immunity) but the results are dramatic. If you needed 'real world evidence' of the impact of the vaccine then this is it.
