Unfortunately, getting the NHS invite to have the 'flu jab just qualifies you for the "vulnerable" list, not the "extremely vulnerable" list.
The govt asked for 250,000 people to volunteer as NHS volunteers, those volunteers are the people who will be delivering food and meds to the "extremely vulnerable" list.
Media are saying that 400,000 people have already volunteered, 150,000 more than were asked for, so perhaps those extra 150,000 could be delivering to the most needy on the "vulnerable" list too. A massive task to organise though.
(I don't know why the EDF moved this thread to the Lounge, as people need that gov.uk link. The media aren't getting clear info on these lists out there, even the BBC was being misleading about it today. Go figure, as they say.)
