    This seems to be a reasonable plan going forward: 5 steps.jpg
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Remember, this is supposed to be data-led, not the timetabled approach that you appear to be imposing on the country. Though doubtless you will be incredibly popular when you leak this version to your favourite newspapers.

    Got mine for Tuesday,the same day as Mrs W,who is in a younger cohort.Apparently the Surgery struck me off because they rang three times without leaving a message, and got the hump when I (obviously) didn't ring back. Not all pensioners are retired!

    I would take that calculator with a pinch of salt, just entered my details in and I should expect my first dose from the 5th April, I had it last Thursday.

    Try booking anyway. I'm 62 and it's offering me appointments tomorrow all over the Midlands. As I've got to take my vulnerable partner for her GP scheduled jab on Saturday I'm sitting tight as they may well do me on the two birds one stone principle.

    The jab is technically in Clinical Trial until January 2023, so it might be worth checking terms and conditions of your health, travel and life insurance policies as many could be invalidated. Many don't cover when Clinical Trial has been participated.

    Do you have a reliable source for this (because I can't find any supporting evidence from a quick Google search)?

    And, while you are providing a reliable source, which of the approved vaccines are you talking about?

    That the (never specified) vaccine is still in a clinical trial is a common anti-vaccer theme. And participating in a clinical trial (a study to validate some property of the substance in question) is different from receiving something that is involved in a clinical trial.

    There are always clinical trials going on involving all kinds of stuff, even aspirin: an example being the fairly recent study the showed a small daily dose of aspirin is preventative for stroke. Would your insurance be invalid for taking aspirin?

    Perhaps you could provide the clauses in your health and travel insurance, and life assurance, that you refer to.

    And even if you are right on all counts, do you really imagine that the insurance industry would invalidate the cover of what will be by May some 80% of its customers?
