I was just wondering what people’s thoughts are on the government’s interim advice on priority groups for the Covid-19 vaccines (see link).
Whilst priorities 1 and 2 do make complete sense, I am somewhat surprised that it appears those people who have been classified as clinically extremely vulnerable will now be re-classified as high risk and moderate risk and ranked 6th and 7th respectively in the priority list. However if you are over 65 that will move up the pecking order, dependent on which age bracket you fit into. This seems a major change of policy for the clinically extremely vulnerable who received letters in both March and now November telling them they are at risk and need to shield. It now appears from the ranking that they are lower priority than a healthy 65-year-old. Have I got this completely wrong or am I missing something?
