I've just had a look at the schedule for vaccinations  https://covid19.gov.im/vaccination/vaccination-schedule-priority-groups/  which doesnt seem to be a schedule at all but more a timeline of what theyve done. Does anyone know what priority group they are currently vaccinating (1-10) and the projected dates when each will start ? If theres a link I'm just not finding please point me to it/

It's chaos! I'm 74 with serious lung probs. and have got my first jab on Monday, (hopefully).

My sis-in-law who is 65 with no probs. has hers the day after ??

My friend who is 65 too but with diabetes  has already had his first jab last week ?? ( He has also, yesterday, received a letter telling him to phone 111 to make his first appointment) ??

These are just a couple of instances that I know about.

My appointments were made when I first phoned, their appointments were received later.

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

My sister living in UK is 30, no underlying health. She had a call the other day from local vax centre asking if she could come down that afternoon due to excess capacity. That's how and why the UK is going to race ahead in this.

Seems to me that supermarket staff are some of the main frontline workers at this point.

People touting for a certificate to go on holiday have got their priorities muddled up.

Check you facts - It said DOI workers not transport workers in the quote

Check your reading ability, it clearly says transport crew. Still waiting to hear how you know it is ‘fake news’?

It’s quite complex but my understanding is individual GP surgeries are contacted as to when to send out the letters for set ranges, of course some surgeries might have more clinically vulnerable patients than over 70s and vice versa, so this leads to GP surgeries processing letters quicker than others and effectively overlapping groups with one another, it’s like the kid with the slowest handwriting trying to copy off the kid with the fastest handwriting.

Your case isn’t the first I’ve heard, I’ve only just had my letter through for priority group 4, but I know of others that have already had theirs a few weeks previous and now had their first vaccine, I’m somewhat grateful because from all accounts they got stared at by a group pensioners as they appear otherwise healthy (as do I to be fair).

The priorities are decided by JCVI although Ashie changed this for Steam Packet, as I posted earlier Guernsey are proposing moving  Police & teachers up priority list so suppose we could to but today on radio I’ve heard calls for taxi drivers, bus drivers, police, teachers and now you with supermarket workers

I would love to know when this is over how many of the people who are currently "cases" have any noticeable symptoms and how many were just positive results from track and trace.

Presumably all of the unexplained ones had symptoms. If they had been identified by Track and Trace they wouldn't be unexplained

I am assuming Guernsey are only looking to push the police up the list after they lost something like 40% of their workforce. Unfortunately it will take something like that over here for any group to be pushed up rather than be pro active and try and stop it happening in the first place.

Research by the Office for National Statistics suggests a number of occupations have higher-than-average death rates, including restaurant workers, taxi drivers, metal workers and shop assistants - so which group would be prioritised first and how would they be identified?

The conclusion is that a fast, efficient rollout to all adults, by age group, is the best way to achieve the target of giving all adults a first dose by the end of July.

It's all kicking off in Peel

Nice to still see some humour in these current times, Simpsons is to Peel, what Feltons is to Ramsey and Ken Quines is to Port Erin,  marvellous little shops.

Metal workers? What's all that about?
