    Not yet. I'm in the third group/phase. After first responders/health care workers they're working on 75 and older. I expect 65 and older won't be until mid February (if then)?

    Aargh, the curse of being healthy and young...

    Suzanne and I are in the last wave.

    Still, the fact that there are waves is great!

    Indeed! It's good we're doing these waves. I've got a long way to go yet...

    In the meantime I'll continue to blame Nurgle (Chaos God of plague/disease) for this plague.

    Even the warped minds at Games Workshop never came up with a plague to outdo this one Gary.

    Hopefully without complications, Sir.

    ...and don't forget the oral desinfecion with a glass of port.

    Unfortunately Germany messed up a little bit.

    Don't know when but I'm ready.

    Thank you my dear Comte. Mrs Bligh has not had hers yet although in the same age range so I'm waiting so we can get them at the same time.

    No complications here. Mrs Bligh got her notification today, and we are both getting our first dose on the 10th.

    On the strength of the Latest Covid announcement, Raffer and I will be looking into the chance of getting Doncaster up and running this year. In the meantime consider the implecations of what this may mean for you all shipmates.

    Is this one of the advantages of getting older? I had my jab last week and the next one due in May - just before my birthday.

    Rob nice picture but from the pictures of a previous Doncaster meeting that I saw on the Aerodrome site I assumed everyone already had full biological protective gear courtesy of Flying Helmet.

    There are always the new attendees to account for John, and the fact that Patient Zero's contagion was so virulent that we were instructed to destroy our suits after use.

    You may find that when you go for your first jab, they ask you if you are booked foire the booster. We were O.K. but several people in the booths got sorted as they came out and were given their cards to say they had been given the first shot. Ours just had the date for the second jab on it as a reminder. However, I would still try again on line later.

    My wife and I had our first jabs -- we are so grateful! Four weeks until the second jab. I was surprised how efficient the process was -- they moved hundreds of people through the process effortlessly:

    Novel way of doing it Bill. We just had a clock on the wall. I timed our 15 from the time the jab went in rather than the time we got to the waiting room.

    We received our second shot this afternoon. As I write, it has been a bit over 8 hours. The wife is experiencing chills and a headache already. My only complaint is my arm feels like a 24 pounder ball gave it a glancing blow.
