    UK data, which can be broken down to nation level, here:

    https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/deta...ort_date_daily

    Data for Cardiff and the Vale here:

    https://cavuhb.nhs.wales/covid-19/ca...ion-programme/

    1443 vaccinations yesterday. Interesting to note how few vaccinations have been given to the high risk over-80s group - 265 since the vaccination programme began on 8th December (average 7 per day). Contrast this with England where over 40% of over-80s have been vaccinated. Evidently Wales has prioritised frontline health and social care workers ahead of the over-80s.

    I think frontline workers, those in healthcare, teachers, undertakers should get first shout. Any reduction in those numbers has knock on effects elsewhere. Then get vunerable workers vaccinated. Then do the elderly. Without being unkind, they can keep isolating and getting shopping delivered etc.

    The elderly are much more likely to be severely ill and require treatment in hospital. We won't have a functioning NHS until most of them are vaccinated (or dead).

    I think you could argue it both ways, immunise those at a far higher risk of death or immunise those who care for them but who are at a far lower risk of death.

    Either way I do think the communications in Wales about the vaccination strategy have been extremely poor. Expectations have been high since the first vaccinations were delivered in early December but it is evident from these figures that, in Cardiff and the Vale at least, there was never any intention to mass vaccinate the over-80s to date.

    I mentioned elsewhere that my 80 yo brother in Cheshire has already had both jabs and today his 73 yo sister in law had hers. Neither have medical conditions and they seem to be steaming through them up there.

    This is a page of a letter that came through the post today (dated 11/01/21) and is the priority list from Cardiff Council and Cardiff & Vale University Health Board. On this page it also lists the groups who represent about 99% of preventable deaths from Covid.

    As a side issue I just wanted to highlight that for those of us who are shielding and extremely vulnerable (I'm in list 4) Covid isn't the only problem we've faced for nearly a year e.g. no face-to-face consultations with Neurologists, which means no examinations, which means no treatments. MRIs being missed (brain and spine which take up to 90 minutes) and Radiologists and specialist nurses being seconded to Covid wards, ICUs or off sick.

    Some vital and specialist blood tests (which have to be sent to France - oh the irony) for central nervous system viruses have been missed (which means no chance of survival, they're that lethal). Neurologists and other specialist staff relocating back to mainland Europe because of Brexit which means patient loads are being shared with the remaining over-worked team members.

    We've created a perfect storm. Years of austerity i.e. underfunding, Brexit and ignoring/not preparing for an inevitable Pandemic. I date this one back to 2010 and the Con/LD coalition slashing vital medical and social services as well creating problems with recruiting specialist staff (it won't matter if you have all the Private Health insurance you could want if there isn't a specialist consultant to be referred to - and the training is over 10 years).

    Sorry, hard to be cool about this stuff.

    Anyway, I hope the attached clears things up and helps.

    Look like a very sensible approach by Cardiff and Vale, keeping mass vaccination centres for front line workers, and GPs for elderly, plus a mobile unit for care homes
