    o/t Getting my covid 19 jab on Thursday

    Don't get me wrong as I'm very grateful to be getting it early but I do feel they have all the priorities wrong.

    I think the idea of doing the oldies first is to hopefully relieve the threat of the N.H.S. being overwhelmed by the vulnerable going down, but my thoughts are somewhat opposite to this.

    I think it would be fairer to leave the oldies till later as the most vulnerable of these must-have surely caught it during the first phase and sadly passed on.

    I think that the youngsters, who rarely catch it but will be most likely the biggest carriers, due to them closely mixing should be given the jabs first along with teachers who most need the protection from them.

    Closely followed by all medical and nursing staff as well as carers of the elderly, essential workers coming next followed by people of working age to get the economy on a level footing.

    After this would be the time to deal with the remainder of the population.

    Following this pattern would surely slow the attack of the virus down as well as getting the country back onto a normal footing.

    You want to vaccinate those with less chance of getting ill and/or dying from covid first? Glad you’re not in charge Pat 😆.
    You’re right though the priority is to take as much strain as possible off the NHS, hence, the plan being put into action.

    I don't agree that the ones I stated have the least chance of getting ill from covid. when the dust settles and all of the analysis is done I'll wager the youngsters, who are the least vulnerable will be found to be the most dangerous carriers thus putting at risk mainly their teachers and their parents.

    Let's wait and see. That is unless you have misunderstood my reasoning.

    Call me cynical and suspicious, but I'm not convinced that this vaccine will be the silver bullet.

    Does this jab cover the new strain, and will we need to get it every year now going forward? Like the flu jab.
