COVID Vaccine CV/CEV
Hi, I’m sure lots of people have posted about this. But just wondering if anyone can relate? I was given a shielding letter in the first lockdown due to being recognised as clinically extremely vulnerable, and of course to carry on shielding through the latest lockdown to date. My partner and carer has had his appointment offer for his vaccine through a few weeks ago, as he is an “unpaid carer” to someone who is clinically vulnerable to COVID-19. However, I’ve not heard anything about mine, and as I receive high level of outside support, an organisation rang my GP for an update on mine, and on record I’m not part of the clinically vulnerable group, nor do they have any records of either letter of shielding. Basically saying “They got sent to people who didn’t even need them”. And only people of 65+ is receiving theirs, plus clinically extremely vulnerable. Going forward, I was told to wait till my age group -“30”, she said on target for June/July for the first dose. I’m confused why I’ve been completely bypassed, how the information contradicts so much. I will have no choice but to wait, but I’m just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience? Due to me not having mine, I’m the only one in my support organisation client group has hasn’t been offered a vaccination, and as a result my support has been decreased due to the higher risks. Sorry for the long article. My brain is fried.
