I just had a call from the chairman of the bridge club I used to go to pre-Covid (when will we ever be able to play face-to-face again? ). He tells me that all the over-80s in the club (of which there are a fair number) have had their first shots, and all are doing well. So that's good news.
Meanwhile, we're a little bit concerned about our next-door neighbour, who hasn't been offered the jab. She'll be turning 105 next week. She's in good health and jolly sprightly for her age - my wife had a chat (at social distance) the other day - although fed up with being virtually housebound. I wonder if, for people of that age, the jab is considered too risky? If anyone can explain, I'd appreciate it.
Not sure what they are using as the platform for sending out invites - probably medical registrations. Whatever it is, perhaps a call to her GP is in order. Although if she isn't registered anywhare that might explain it.
