Anyone here managed to get the jab so far? Hope some of you have managed to get it already, as it'll be a huge relief for you!

Not yet but trying to get an appointment. Currently, there are supply issues and more on the way. Hopefully, soon, fingers crossed.

Nope!

I'm only 'tear 4' in line, despite getting letters from the government telling me I'm at high risk and should 'shield' myself. :rolleyes:

My brother's missus is a healthcare worker, had hers earlier this week, right when we had all the snow! Luckily my brother has a 4x4!

Dad had his letter today as it happens, he's tier 3 and mums tier 4. They wanted to get done together as they are both shielding and don't want one to go out and get it without the other, not sure how that works.... they haven't left the house since march! :eek:

We've not had it yet, and as a pair of healthy 40 year olds, won't be yet!

No, not had a jab. We seem to be in similar circumstances to @V_R's parents.

We've been shielding for almost a year now (I don't want to bring home any gremlin-nasties to my husband, who has various health issues which render him vulnerable.)

Went out four times last year - to get veterinary treatment for our cat. There was no contact with others though, because they don't allow owners into the building, only the pet, so very safe.

I've told him he must go. I think if you had to go anywhere a vaccine centre will be safer than most, in terms of cleanliness anyway.

Its a tough choice, I can see why he's nervous but its got to be done.

They have actually left the house, they go out for a drive every now and again, but they've not left the car.

Fingers crossed mum won't have to wait too much longer, and nor will any of you guys too. :)

I had mine Jan 7th. I did a post on it,

https://www.pcreview.co.uk/threads/vacinations.4076031/

As part of WAST I now have to do a self test every four days with a kit provided by WAST. Done two so far both turned out negative. We are limited to one patient in the car at a time and for me that means that I have three patients a week as I only do afternoon runs. I very rarely go into a hospital, generally drop the patient of at the front door. If they are frail and need a hand I do escort them to their clinic which is a rare event.
Some hospitals will not let you into the building and you have to ring, and then they send a porter with wheelchair to pick up the patient at the door, then bring them back later on.
Some hospitals will let you escort a patient ot the clinic door but will only let the patient through the door.
So apart from the three patients who have all had a laboratory test done very recently the only other folk I see are people on my weekly shopping trip. I normally do the shop late on in the evening as their are way less folk around at nine o'clock.

If you have some loot stashed and want a shot of the vaccine quickly why not try these good folk at Knightsbridge Circle. They will organise a couple of shots of the vaccine and a top notch holiday too. The will organise getting to and flying from a UK airport too so travelling won't be too much of a pain. :rolleyes:

This Is How the Super Rich Are Beating You to the Vaccine

"As health workers wait to be vaccinated, the wealthy are jumping the queue to get jabs on "vaccine holidays" in places like Dubai and Goa.
This week, a wealthy couple will fly from London to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. They’ll be picked up at the airport in a Bentley or a Range Rover, and taken to a luxury villa.
The following day, the same car will take them to a private health clinic, where they will be given the first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine of their choice, with offerings from Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Sinopharm on the table. Three weeks later, they will return to the clinic from their villa and have the second shot."

"Millionaires jetting off on vaccine holidays is outrageous – our larger problem is the monopoly system that means vaccines are in shorter supply than they need be so some NHS workers have yet to be vaccinated, and millions around the world might never get the shot they need."
McNeill and Knightsbridge Circle are carrying on with their plans.

“I have to weigh up the balance between making lots of money and being able to sleep at night,” McNeill says. “I’m not going to get a vaccine for a 35-year old who wants to go to the gym.”


Priti_Patel_Govt_Official_Web.jpg


New measures at the UK’s borders to restrict the spread of coronavirus and new variants through imported cases are set to be announced in the coming days, home secretary Priti Patel has confirmed.

Gosh I did not even know we had border controls. Well done that lass for thinking that restricting folks movements across borders is a good thing. :bow:

Good timing @nivrip :D. Which one are you getting today - the Oxford one?

Went out four times last year - to get veterinary treatment for our cat. There was no contact with others though, because they don't allow owners into the building, only the pet, so very safe.
Oh gosh, does that include no trips to shops etc...? I really hope you can get it soon @Taffycat (and your parents @V_R), what a relief it will be for you both, and opens the door to being able to do things again once it's under control more widely.

Had it about an hour ago. It was the Pfizer jab. Hope the damn' EU don't block the future doses coming from there. They seem so childish about it that they just might.

All done very efficiently - in and out in 20 minutes and that included sitting for 15 mins after the jab to make sure there was no anaphylactic reaction.

The one I went to was immaculate inside. Staff constantly cleaning. Sadly outside wasn't that good. Despite staff outside there was no social distancing

No jab for me yet, haven't heard a thing from my GP or any vaccine centre.

I thought considering my recent medical history I'd be high risk but apparently not.

I go to the supermarket a few times a week and have been for a few local walks and bicycle rides but that's about it.

On other medical issues I had an eye cataract removal last November and a few days ago received my new set of spectacles to suit my revamped mince pie. Really quite amazing the difference it's made.

I also haven't carried out any work since late November, Lockdown seems to have put the kibosh on earning a few bob :(

I was finally able to register as a high-risk patient for the Vaccine today. The email confirmation stated as soon as they have the vaccine they will inform me about the next availability for the appointment. They are only catering to 65+ and high-risk folks at the moment.
