I have come back from donating plasma, so they can use my antibodies to save others. I don't want a medal. Doing good is its own reward. They told me not to drink alcohol for 12 hours, but I am going to ignore that.
 
I got my "Corona Vaccination Priority Certificate" today.

Apparently, because I'm not working in a medical or care institution, I'm group "§ 3 CoronaImpfV" not "Highest" Priority for an vaccination (that's the "§ 2 CoronaImpfV" apparently, but I am "High" priority because my workplace comes under the snappily named category of "§ 3 Abs. 1 Nr. 4 1. Alt CoronaImpfV".

Because this is Germany it took them two sheets of tightly spaced A4 Paper to say that, bless them.

Now I can try and make an appointment with the vaccination centre for our county. Apparently this is in an Aldi two villages north of here; should I worry?

Well I checked and got this -

Based on your profile, you are in priority Group 9, and there are between 818,287 and 963,321 people in front of you in the queue for a first dose of COVID vaccine across Scotland.
📅 Given a vaccination rate of 168,176 a week and an uptake of 74%, you should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 21/05/2021 and 02/06/2021.

You should then get your second dose by between 13/08/2021 and 25/08/2021.

:biggrin:

We had to check to see if my daughter and son-in-law could visit at the weekend. 4 links later, and several pages of officialise German you need a doctorate to understand we eventually found they can't. One too many people.

Check the sell-by date of the vaccine ...

I read that and thought' 'complete and utter rubbish'. Pleased to see your subsequent post 👍.
With a UK rate of 4M a week (pop=67M) the Scottish (pop=5.5M) share of the increased supply is 8% = 320k per week.
In Scotland there are 393k 55-59s and 401k 50-54s (some will already have been jabbed as they're in JCVI Gps 2, 4 or 6). The uptake is well over 90% (why is the site using such out of date data?).
PS The privileged David Davies speaks more truth than the site you found.

A slight temperature and a runny nose do not seem to meet the symptom criteria which the UK's NHS offer. Just saying. Is there a similar list in Germany?
Must be frustrating to miss work on such an exaggerated over precaution.

Our daughter had an orthodontist appointment moved because of those symptoms a couple of months ago. At least some settings in the UK seem to be as (over) cautious.

For (very literally) face-to-face interactions like dentist etc, I would not call that over-cautious.

I work with vulnerable adults in a workshop so they are being very careful to avoid an outbreak: if they have to close for two weeks a couple of the clients would collapse psychologically.

The fact the workshop would also lose money on the contracts it is fulfilling would, I'm sure, not come into the managements consideration.

Agree but this is a parent 'isolating' because child has runny nose and a slight temperature. I called that an 'over precaution'.
But Andy has explained his special work circumstance so I entirely recognise the approach his place of work takes.
