Details of local Covid vaccination plans?

It could be very helpful if forum users shared knowledge about when, how and where people are being offered the vaccine. Which GP practices have contacted their patients and which in high priority categories etc. I know surgeries understandably do not want telephone lines blocked with people asking these questions and they need people to wait to be contacted. So, sharing here could be helpful in managing expectation.

Took my 91 year old Mum to The Tessa Jowell medical centre for the 1st injection. All very efficient with lots of staff and lots of people having the jab. In total there for about 30 mins & left with appointment for 2nd injection. Mum?s with The Gardens GP & we received a text message asking if she wanted the vaccine & then a phone call for the appointment.

I know three over 85 year olds that will be receiving the vaccine tomorrow.


One will be receiving it at East Dulwich Grove tomorrow evening and is being taken by car by a neighbour.


The other couple are being taken by car by my other half tomorrow afternoon for an appointment at King's.

Two informed sources indicate that the vaccination centres are unable to achieve their quota and doses are going to waste. This is because they are being rigidly held to the over 80's group.

They are not being allowed to contact any others outside that group so that the doses can be used before being wasted.


There must be lots of over 70's who would jump at the chance if offered it and most of them could present within 30 minutes of getting an alert.


Waste not, want not.

Known personally to you? What do you mean by indicate? How long after after dilution and storage have doses been discarded, and how many? When and where has this happened? To whom has any interdiction been communicated, in what terms and context, and by whom?

Yes, known to me personally and both members of our closest circle of friends. Both are at a senior level at two separate London hospitals. As for your statistical queries, I do not have that type of granular detail and I fully appreciate your right to challenge the assertion made.

I can't see any links in their posts - can you explain where the SEO links are?

It is my understanding that any left-over vaccines are being taken by NHS staff and their families. A call goes out that there are residue vaccines that day and they queue up to get them. Considering the proximity of many NHS staff to Covid patients, I do not consider this a waste. Moreover, this enables a really quick response and take-up, rather than offering it to the next group down which would involved a lot of ringing round. I hope that once NHS staff have completed their take up, they start to offer left-overs to teachers, who are the cannon fodder of this pandemic.

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
