    Default Covid 19 vaccination

    I have previously said that I did not want to be one of the first to receive the Covid 19 jab, so when, at five o'clock, I got a phone call offering me the vaccination, I had to make a quick decision. I said, "Yes". It will be done a week tomorrow with the follow-up jab early in January.

    I'm still slightly wary about being one of the early adopters but, on balance, I think I made the right choice. Heck, at my age (82) I've not got much to lose!

    I think the choice is a good one. The high rate of effectiveness combined with the "minor" side effects almost makes it a no brainer. It is the best hope for a return to some semblance of normalcy.

    "Wow, what makes you a member of this privileged elite?"

    All I know is, they started a national program of vaccination this morning, (Tuesday, 8th Dec) and the elderly are being prioritized. I got a phone call from my local medical practice at about 5pm asking if I would like to receive the jab. It took me about five seconds to decide!

    Good for you. Anyone over 80 should be high priority, as they've been the highest casualty group.

    Many thanks, All, for the good wishes. I feel like a pioneer.

    I've lost two family members to Covid and a third beat it (my sweet, great aunt at age 98).

    I am so happy for you to receive this jab and wish you the best of luck.
