I haven't. I'm not in a priority group. I'm in the "to be thrown under the bus on 21 June" group under the current plans.Has anyone on this thread not had the vaccine or been booked in for later this week except the people who cannot have it? I think there are 1 or 2 on here who haven't.
Yes - I noticed that - it will really act as a big buffer to the lower ages.Don't know anyone in their 50s without conditions who has yet heard. There are a lot of people in group 6
A buffer to slow the rate of vaccination down, or a buffer to stop death/hospitalisation/transmission?Yes - I noticed that - it will really act as a big buffer to the lower ages.
I was somewhat shocked by the way by the number of folk in that "with conditions" group.
Don't know if that's a bigger percentage of the population in the UK than other places.
Except (in the under the bus metaphor) you will have have a he1met on, young person, which will save you from serious injury - the bus will be travelling at less than 8mph. So its BSEN1078 standard should be relevant.I'm not in a priority group. I'm in the "to be thrown under the bus on 21 June" group
If the step 4 stuff comes along at the earliest possible date (and step 3 stuff), someone can choose not to attend those higher risk events. I won't be going in a nightclub on 21st June even on a date. That's fine to me. Many others may work in these sectors or work in other workplaces with masses of unvaccinated people and poor ventillation. There are way too many people a year on that bang on about cleaning venues and not enough focus on ventillation, length of time exposed, face coverings and actually staying 2 metres apart. It's understandable as so many diseases in human history are related to hygiene and handwashing and large parts of the population are wired in to worry about this, but it also means the public message isn't getting in a year in.You will still have the option not to go anywhere.
I didn't mean it in a critical way.A buffer to slow the rate of vaccination down, or a buffer to stop death/hospitalisation/transmission?
I didn't think you meant it negatively at all. People in groups 8 and 9 may think the jab's hurtling towards them faster than it would otherwise, however outside of this board I've heard of quite a number of people in their 50s without UHC who've been offered jabs. It's more the mixed messaging/hints off politicians where the 'offered' has swung in a short space of time between end of March, End of April, back to mid-April and then for a while (which has stopped now) very bullish talk of offering all over 18s the vaccination by May/June. Group 6 was estimated to be 7.3 million people and with last week's UHCs it may be something like 9 million. Time has passed, so I think people are a bit more aware of how long this'll take. I think people appreciate that for many in group 6 a vaccination is a massive uplift in quality of life.I didn't mean it in a critical way.
Or that it will slow the number of folks getting the vaccine.
Simply that there are an awful lot in that group (one of the largest I think), so a lot will need doing before folks further down the age range will get it. They may have thought that the jab was hurtling towards them faster than it will.
