Very.

Although the anti-vax clowns are going to get very frothy today.

I’m 4th down the list for getting it under the clinically vulnerable, see how long it takes them to get down to that part of the list.

To be fair I’m still out and about and gyms back open today, life goes on!

I do wonder how this is going to work long term.

Take Glastonbury for example; If you’re vaccinating the vulnerable and elderly first, that group won’t have much cross-over with a festival. So does that go ahead still because the most at risk are taken care of? Do they think by June that a large % that need it, will have had it? So everyone else can carry on as they were?

I hope it won’t come to a “we’ve taken care of the vulnerable, the rest of you do whatever you want” situation

Sadly I think that’s the attitude that a lot are going to have.

Until they give it to their Nan who hasn’t got the jab yet because she didn’t meet all of the criteria.

Will all those In the higher risk categories get a letter from the NHS suggesting a vaccine?

Or who falls into the 5%

Or the hospitals start filling up with younger people/they drop out of work for weeks with Covid symptoms

I can’t think of any good argument for such massive restrictions on normal life once everyone who is at high risk has been vaccinated.

Frustratingly I’m starting self isolation today as my partner has tested positive. Don’t know if that means I’ll be eligible for a vaccine if I end up testing positive too.

Great news for everyone else though - there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel!

At the moment, I think every adult is eligible. This might change further down the line.

I don’t know if I should get a test. I feel a bit crap and had the shivers for a day or so. But no cough, change in sense of smell or taste and my ancient thermometer isn’t showing anything.

I am frankly terrified of tests though – what if I actually get infected from a contaminated swab!?

I know work are saying you can’t have the COVID vaccine within 28 of having the flu vaccine.

As for if you’ve recently had COVID :man_shrugging:

My bf is feeling generally run down with a slight sore throat. None of the main 3 symptoms.

What makes you think you’ll get a contaminated swab? :confused:
They’re individually sealed and opened when you drive up. I’ve had 6 tests so far so I have some experience!

Anxiety, I guess! And horror stories from the early days of national testing programmes where I’m sure there was an article about huge batches of tests arriving contaminated from China
