Anyone remember seeing the early Covid footage of people falling over & dying in the streets of China?

That was in the days when we thought it would never get over here, who’d have thought?

Margie is right. I keep popping in to see how you all are. Thankyou all so much for your posts.   I'm afraid we are not very well the pair of us. This must be the 'Long Covid' that we hear a

This week is the first anniversary of our daughter arriving home from Cape Town via Heathrow, where she acquired the virus and passed it on to us.

 

Since then, I’ve acquired Raynaud's Syndrome in some fingers, which makes going out in cold weather painful, not had a full night’s sleep, and joint aches - all of which have appeared in the last year.

 

On the positive side, done over 1600 hours as an NHS Volunteer Responder  and completed nearly a thousand tasks for the scheme, helped two clinical trials on antibodies, nearly donated plasma (no suitable vein), and saved a shed load of money on not going out!

I sometimes get that in my feet if the weather is cold. It usually only last 10-15 minutes, then goes away. I don't think I'd say it's painful - just annoying while it's there.

My mum sometimes displayed the symptoms of Raynauld's. Supposedly down to poor circulation. I don't have it but I do get pains in my fingers, caused by a dodgy thyroid, even though I'm on medication. It comes and goes but has been particularly annoying these last few days.

I see my multiple post from last night (which of course was not caused by me.. but by some sort of system error  :rolleyes:).. has been tidied up.  I'm guessing it was Kev who did it, but whoever it was, many thanks.

Interesting about the 60+ being vaccinated soon. I thought they'd already been vaccinated as there are lots of apparently 60+ on here.  If you've been done how did you do it without being called? Just wondered as we have just started 80's and seems we are next 65-80. We will or should have Pfizer as the under 65's have Astra Zeneca. Hope we all get covered no matter what . We are once again in orange zone after being in yellow for a month. Awaiting today for new Dpcm further restrictions. It takes some keeping up with what we can and can't do.

There is a well known Swiftqueue loophole for those that want the vaccine, all my mates had the jab weeks ago they are all under 60, some under 50.

Want the link PM me

Are you brave enough for the jab Jill?
A friend of mine has had the Swiftqueue link open permanently on her computer for several days in anticipation and the age range changed to 60+ at 9am this morning.  She’s off to the Forest at 6.20 this evening.

Nonna B

When they say 60+ they mean 60 to 65

 

They've been doing 5 year blocks so anyone 65 to 70 like me got letters 2 weeks ago.

 

Some people had been using a website link for Healthworkers of any age to book a jab when they weren't Health workers and the centres doing the jab weren't asking for I.D as they should have.

 

   
1 Residents in a care home for older adults and staff working in care homes for older adults
2 All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
3 All those 75 years of age and over
4 All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (not including pregnant women and those under 16 years of age)
5 All those 65 years of age and over
6 Adults aged 16 to 65 years in an at-risk group (see clinical conditions below) [footnote 1]
7 All those 60 years of age and over
8 All those 55 years of age and over
9 All those 50 years of age and over
10  Rest of the population (to be determined)

Just read that one should refrain from drinking alcohol for 2 days prior and 2 weeks after the Covid vax.  Well that’s me shot then ...... they should have told me a month ago before my trip to the Forest!

I have a drink most nights to celebrate still being here. A piece of useless information if you ask me!

I think it’s one of the many silly rumours put around by halfwits about the Covid vaccine. I’m sure if it was relevant it would have been made clear at the time of the vaccination.

I think that where I live, we must be well ahead in the vaccine ‘race’. as I know several people aged 55 - 60 with NO underlying health conditions who have already had their first jab.

Saw (again) on the midlands news that in Leicester takeup of the vaccine amongst the asian and black communities is considerably lower than amongst the white population. Wonder how long it will be before somebody tells me it’s my fault.

Stuart C our list is similar to that and we are after the over 80's (78) I don't know if I'll be classed as vulnerable or not. Don't know if being in followup counts but I don't care as long as I get vaccinated. We have a cousin who has a petrol station and she thinks it's a con from the govt. won't wear a mask although she's been reported by customers.
