Nope. Plenty under 40’s are being called now with no health conditions. It’s a bit of a postcode lottery but they are being called across the country.
I got mine last week (caring for a vulnerable relative) and I found a few places in South London with available slots. Picked the earliest one (next day) and on arrival the waiting room was mostly populated by fit (aerobically) women in jogging bottoms - didn't see anyone over 40/50. Kind of looking forwards to the second jab. I got the modified chimpanzee sniffles (Oxford) and can report no side effects for a day, then chills on second day, then loose stools on third day.

Could take-up and numbers as above be the reason why younger folks are being called sooner than they anticipated? No point in having good vaccine and good medics at the ready for empty pods.

Lack of vaccines. We have a super centre on Morrisons carpark 1/4 mile away from us, it's been shut the last 2 days. My mum had a letter this week to book for a vaccine and can't get an appointment anywhere.

I read about that for a large centre near us but it was allegedly sorted two days ago, hopefully likewise for other locations.

Off for mine today

I heard a rumour that turning up with an uninvited guest (lower down the list..) might mean they get theirs too if there are cancellations earlier in the day, is there any truth in this ?

Temporary dip in supply. Due to be up to 5m a week rate (so 750k/day) by end of next week.

I suppose you are right, of course. I suppose living in cardboard city in London was a part of my education, as was becoming a milkman getting up at 4.30am, and freezing my hands delivering milk. But I started my own business, worked at one time 80 hours a week, weekends included, I took the rough with the smooth, built it up, designed and self-built a house, and built a car that hadn't existed for 60 years. Life has just been a bowl of cherries.
It’s strange isn’t it, how much effort we have to put in, and keep putting in, to be handed everything on a plate.

I read earlier that the big numbers will start to come after March 15th and it’s a supply issue

It seems that the national website booking system is different to the local booking system.
The national one finds you places perhaps 10-20 miles away and includes the second jab in 2-3 months.
A few days later the local system might phone you up and offer places which the national system doesn't have.
The local system isnt booking second jabs yet as theyre concentrating on frst jabs

Yes my locally booked one was for the first and I would get another invite for the second whereas national booking system books both appointments.

Odd way of doing it really as one would have thought the systems would work together.

I think the fact that there are separate systems, both run by the entrepreneurial parts of the NHS (GPs and Pharmacies) is helping the high throughput as they are competing for 'customers'.

GPs are hoovering up their regular punters which is why plenty of us 40-somethings have been done before the national system picks us up.

I suppose local GPs get an allocation, uses it in accordance with the guidelines - some have more older/sicker patients than others so some get to younger patients quicker.

As regards GPs using the same systems as the NHS my GP has only just got his head around using an Abacus hehe

A friend of ours in Lincolnshire received her invitation to be vaccinated yesterday. She's 39, in perfect health and works as an accountant. She, like us, is very surprised and can't believe that everyone older than her in her village has already been jabbed.
It's possible there is an error in her records (error when records were transcribed from paper to electronic) or she had a childhood condition (e.g asthma) that has caused her to be flagged?
Nope. Plenty under 40’s are being called now with no health conditions. It’s a bit of a postcode lottery but they are being called across the country.
I think you are right its highly variable - my GP in SW London says they are currently on Group 7 (over 60s) and in spite of having had open heart surgery I'm in Group 9 (the over 50s, which is my age group).
