Have you had your COVID injection yet? Mine is on 4th Feb. and the next one in April. Be glad to get it over with! Phew. Maybe things are looking up at last. I’m 76 years old.

Great news as you are yhe earliest age I have read or heard about so far.
My older brother is having his today but he is 79 while I expect I will have to wait a while yet as there must be so many of your age, the baby boomer age, while I am the tail end of that age, just passed 70 plus.

I'm 74 and ECV. I had a phone call yesterday inviting me to go on Saturday. My husband is younger than me but looks after me and they said he can go too.

No, over 70 and haven't heard a squeak. Can’t wait to get it done as we live in our county’s highest rate area both covid and the new variant.

I'm 73 and had mine last week.

72 here but I’ve heard nothing.

We are in a Norfolk town. I am 66, OH 63, both having ours this week.

silverlining48 Thu 28-Jan-21 14:46:24

I know so many people who have had theirs, some under 70 with no health issues. Our neighbours had theirs at our surgery. ...must remain calm. envy

My mum is in her mid-90’s. She hasn’t heard a squeak about having the vaccine here in Scotland. sad

I'm 73 and having mine tomorrow.

Whitewavemark2 Thu 28-Jan-21 18:35:25

I’m 75 on Monday, and having mine on Sunday. It’s the Pfizer one.

Jane10 Thu 28-Jan-21 20:23:29

I'm really fed up. I was supposed to be getting mine end of February but now it's not till end of April beginning of May with second jab (or jag as they used to be called up here) in July/August. Why can't Scotland just be as organised as England?!

Daisymae Thu 28-Jan-21 20:30:44

No, still doing over 80s here. DH is over 70 and ECV so hoping it won't be long.

I have had mine this morning. I’m 70 years old. My husband aged 75 had his last Thursday. They are really getting through them in Staffordshire.

SueDonim Thu 28-Jan-21 21:23:39

That’s shocking, Jane10! Maybe Holyrood wants to kill off all the oldies. sad

Kate1949 Thu 28-Jan-21 21:34:28

No news yet (I'm 71) but my husband had his appointments come through today (he's 74) so I'm sure mine won't be long.

Esspee Thu 28-Jan-21 22:34:42

We are in Scotland and the over 70s are currently being vaccinated.

Jane10 Thu 28-Jan-21 22:39:45

Not here they aren't Esspee!!

paddyanne Thu 28-Jan-21 22:45:13

They are in renfrewshire and our area starts 1st February ,my sister is 72 she's getting hers in the local community centre Tuesday morning

muse Thu 28-Jan-21 22:47:55

We're 71 and 72. Still waiting - Cornwall

Urmstongran Thu 28-Jan-21 22:56:31

I’m enjoying reading the ages of everyone!!
😊

Jane43 Thu 28-Jan-21 23:07:20

We are having ours on February 8th - we are both 77. I am watching News Night and there is a feature on how people feel about being vaccinated; the number of people, young and old, who say they won’t be vaccinated is staggering, we can’t wait get ours.

52bright Thu 28-Jan-21 23:14:42

Mum, aged 89 had her first jab early January. She had an appointment for the 2nd jab 3 weeks later but this was cancelled. Friends aged 75 getting their first this Saturday. Dh and I are both 68. No sign yet. Not really expecting our jabs before March. Any earlier would be a bonus.

paddyanne Thu 28-Jan-21 23:47:07

SD has your mother moved home recently an dforgotten to give the change of address? You should contact her health board and she why she has been missed off their list ,it could be something quite simple as her not being registered to vote in that area .My MIL had hers 2 weeks ago but her cousin who is nearly 90 hasn't had hers,seems she had been staying with her daughterover christmas/New year and didn't let them know she was back home now they know they can get her jagged .

Hellogirl1 Thu 28-Jan-21 23:55:57

I`m having mine on Monday, Feb 1st, the second one in April. I`m 77.
