Some 80 year olds in the village are going to Taunton for theirs today at Blackbrook. :wink:

Does anyone know the latest figure for those in this first tranche refusing the jab? It looks to me like 100% uptake which should please those hoping for rapid herd immunity.

Rupert Murdoch had his today.

TTBOMK:
1 There are no official data on this.
2 And there aren't even any on the number of people who have been vaccinated.

But the ONS did include a question on this in a very recent survey, see section 5 "Attitudes to COVID-19 vaccination"

I imagine it could be difficult to establish a "refuse". e.g. I got a letter inviting me to phone and book a flu jab (which I did) but a some might not get round to calling (took me a couple of days), others might not be able to make that day so they'll just wait for another invite, some invites might go astray in the post (happens round me), etc. none of which are "refusers". I doubt many of those "refusing" would call their GP to say "I'm a 'refuser'" - they'll just not bother to make an appointment so we'll never know.

I think you're right (and thanks Jonathan for the charts). However, with the flu jab they really did want me to confirm one way or the other which I did (I didn't have any objection to doing that). But that still doesn't give the BBC much to go on and they would be really scraping around if Jonathan's chart is anything to go by: just 2% or so in that age group say they would refuse. The question though is would the BBC run it if they could? "And here we have 94 year old Major Stalwart in his medals standing firm against the vaccine!". No, I don't think so either.

The question is Who's had the vaccine?

I posed the question to leave the discussions about things like who was willing to be vaccinated on the existing threads. Alternatively, the threads might as well be merged

Apologies thirdcrank. We're just making polite conversation with a little bit of "joshing" while waiting for the results to come in - you know, like they do on election night. As someone mentioned up thread, the first tranche is for the over-eighties and given that it is being run by Nadhim Zahawi, it's going to be slow going (and that's not the over-eighties' fault :D ).

My son, a student nurse currently working in ICU, had his first jab yesterday. He was at work in ICU and wasn't expecting it, but was suddenly offered it by the people administering it as they had a small number of doses left over and didn't want to waste any.

The important element for the role out of the vaccine is, whilst stock is in low supply, it planning for the second dose.

My health board is operating as follows. The receive X0,000 does so book X0,000/2 appointments saving the second half for dose two 28 days later.
