Please don't. There's a good reason for doing in the order intended - it's how likely you are to die. More vulnerable people than you may die if you take this approach.

I am 59 and have some health issues but am quite happy to wait my turn - I am well aware they are trying to carry out a huge task and don't need dicks like me trying to elbow my way to the front of the queue

Agree totally about people who hold those views. They’re dangerous fuckers who spread lies and misinformation, and deserve to be marginalised. That said, I’ll bet a lot of them cave in and their so-called principles will go out the fucking window when they realise they can’t do the things that the rest of us will be able to do once we’ve had the jab.
However, there will be some who can’t can’t have the vaccine for genuine medical reasons and they have my sympathy. Others - as documented on here - have had family members who have suffered badly from vaccines in the past, and it’s understandable that some of those people will have issues about having the Covid vaccine. I’ll be having it for sure but tomorrow marks the 30th anniversary of my elder brother passing away. He was left permanently disabled - both mentally and physically - due to the Whooping Cough vaccine he had back in the 1960s.

100% mate, this is why I was careful to stick the comment solely on anti-vaxxers/Covid denying freaks.

There will be a myriad of people who are either unable for medical reasons or reluctant due to history, and they have all my sympathy.

All credit and respect to you that despite the trauma you've been through, you still plan on getting the jab.

My my who's 82 refused the vaccine because some of my brothers and sisters told her it would kill her, inject microchips into her and other bullshit. Luckily I talked her into getting it last week. The truth is she's paid no attention to the rules, always had multiple visitors for months and been fine. I've got a stepson with an autoimmune disease so we've stuck to the rules diligently for nearly a year

Seems to me that lads I know have been going round to each others houses every week, watching rag matches, 10 different households at a time, and suffered no negative consequences whatsoever

Guess it depends on region etc. I'm 59 and had mine today, although I have some underlying health conditions (severe hypertension and chronic pancreatis). I know its tough and emotional, but we should try and not squabble about it

Home or work, well mostly home these days.
Staggered. Been offered my 1st jab tomorrow accepted). No underlying health conditions so wasn't expecting it till at least April.
My son (31) has been offered his at the Etihad. He has mild asthma, but nothing ever serious, luckily I made him register for a doctor in Manchester (he didn't see the need until I mentioned that he might need an inhaler now and then), the drawback is that he's currently living in North Wales, as they gave up their Manchester flat recently.

I've had mine, 30's under lying hereditary medical condition, was called by local vax center and got done same day.

Felt rough for about 36 hours after, shivering's in bed etc, sign it's working I suppose.

Fine now though.

I don't know how they will police the under 65's with medical problems tbh, could be a can of worms.

This is the odd one isn't it? Two families near me, one are in their early forties with two teenage kids and a five year old. Another are in their thirties with two kids five and seven. They have friends around and both grandparents and as far as I'm aware haven't had a problem. My sister and her husband both in their early sixties did everything right, my sister was anal about masks, gloves, bacterial wipes and they both caught it. Very random.

Bury and Bolton the only two risers wk to wk and only 2 over 200.

Oldham had best week with largest fall in cases shown by Pop Score. Wigan had a good week too with some big falls to low numbers.

Trafford now down about as low as they can go so it will be harder from here on to progress. But they have made by far the biggest progress since Christmas to now own every single GM record there is. Pretty much best of - everything.
