Was your first dose delayed? 
 

We don’t have enough vaccine in hand to cover the appointments for the next two weeks for the second doses for 70+, 65+ and clinically extremely vulnerable. We’ve done everyone 20+ first dose who wanted. UK are still in the 30’s & 40’s. 

UK are accelerating 50+ by slowing delivery of dose 1 to 20+. We haven’t got that ability. They’re robbing Pete to pay Paul. In IOM Pete has already spent his dose and can’t be robbed. 

Now do you understand?

 

No delay, registered online as soon as opened and got call back 60 minutes later. You may have had your second dose but many haven’t with delay in starting not helping position.

As I say Ashford needs to provide update

They’ve got to do 45,000 second doses over the next 11 weeks. They’ve done most 70+ and most clinically extremely vulnerable.

There were issues with the notification and invitation system initially with GP’s missing people off the notification list. That happened to me. I had to chase and as a result of the delay I missed out on second dose within 3-4 weeks. Assuming each decade cohort is same number approx.  it’s 2 weeks each for 60+, 50+, 40+, 30+ and 20+.

Clearly there will be outliers. They’re doing the 65+ and any late first takers in 70+ and clinically extremely vulnerable now.

Not had my second dose. They screwed up my invite. GP forgot to forward in correct cohort.  

The start “delay” has made no difference at all. Time to let go. 

You may have received your invite at the end of your cohort, the  allocation/randomisation between the various lists was opaque.

With due respect John, I think you have got this wrong. By nature of the fact that many oldies have health conditions, there are a lot of o50's due to get second  jabs soon. However those who don't, its end of June. Not outliers, it's the majority. Believe me, I have many friends and colleagues in the same boat.

I noted HQ got his earlier than me. He must have a health condition

They’ve been running ahead of the trajectory for firsts and haven’t updated the trajectory for seconds to take that into account

No. Once you have had your first. Its 12 weeks to second. No change in trajectory is possible.

No. They managed to deliver firsts to all 20+ who wanted ahead of trajectory. By 3 weeks. That means all the aimed for trajectory dates for 2nd are accelerated. There’s still a 12 week gap.

Confusing dose interval with projection/trajectory. Over achieve with speed of delivery of firsts you automatically accelerate 2nds.

You should be a politician :D

O50's cohort not substantially complete until end of June

I am 50, replied to the letter immediately, got an appointment very quickly along with the 2nd for the end of June. All of my peers in the same age cohort are in exactly the same position. Those I know in their mid to late 40's are due their second dose in early July. Neither I or the people I refer to have any underlying health conditions.

The UK has now changed to 8weeks gap for o50's and all other vulnerable groups. Surely we will follow suit. It's got to make sense. 

Given that this cohort will be pretty much done in six weeks, I am not sure the benefit is worth the potential confusion/hassle, although I will not complain if they do.

When they first started talking about changing the second doses I was opposed. I said at the time I'd be happy if I was wrong, and I am.

Thing is, with the evidence clearly showing they were right to do what they did, why would they now go try changing it again?

If they had stuck to the manufacturers schedule instead of the 12 week cock up, all vulnerable and over 60s would be double jabbed by now and the 55+ would be in for second jab next week, 45+ for first.
