HAZY said:out of interest Mike is 76 and has just been called up for his first vaccine on 28th Jan and 20th April for his 2nd jab (less than 4 miles away at a local pharmacy)
Great news, Hazel. The rollout of the vaccine seems to be going remarkably well whatever other criticisms there have been of the Government.
Even though I have been lucky enough to have had both jabs I still have to abide by the same restrictions as everyone else. I tried to go clubbing but they wouldn't let me in unless I brought my own defibrillator.

LOL Tony !! the problem with lockdown is I' don't feel anywhere near as fit with only walking very locally for about an hour (instead of many hours on the various nature reserves or coastline) ; I don't have much to do at home except take the vacuum round for the 4th time in a day so I am trying to keep occupied baking cakes and scones for Mike as freezer is already full of frozen fresh meals !! Might have to stick the radio or "Alexa" on and dance my way round the apartment to lose some weight LOL

Great news Wendy, I managed to get Ron booked in for first jab on Friday too, 15h52. Apparantly one guy doing a jab every 4 minutes. It's a 30 minute drive but that's local for us. The 2nd is booked too, just hope they don't run out of vaccine.

In reply to tony:
I'd personally prefer the Pfizer one to AZ, but would take any offered. I definitely wouldn't worry though. The biggest issue is how long the immunity/resistance lasts after the vaccination. That, and how much mutation goes on while most of the World is unvaccinated and partially vaccinated. That process is likely to be speeded up unnaturally I'd have thought.

Didn't get my jab ... my history of allergic reactions too great for them to risk it!
Oh dear, that's a shame, Wendy. You're just going to have remain extra careful as I'm sure you already are.
So sorry to hear that Wendy, which vaccine were you scheduled for as I thought the OxfordAZ was better for people with allergies rather than the Pfizer one. I know you are self isolating anyway but that was a disappointing outcome for you :( Just listening to Boris update at the moment and update on the new variant news which is concerning.
