JANET STREET-PORTER: I’m not depressed and can’t afford to fly to Dubai, so how can I get a jab?

JANET STREET-PORTER: I will drop everything and crawl anywhere. So far, no.

If you are packed or homeless, you are more likely to get a jab in the coming weeks than most pensioners (including me).

Travel agencies offer private jet trips to Dubai for £ 40,000 per pop.

And in Oldham, the council decided to provide the vaccine to all homeless people, regardless of age. So far, 3,700 people have accepted the offer. Is there really so many homeless people in Oldham? How do they check?

Theoretically, there are strict guidelines on who should be vaccinated first, but in reality, general practitioners and municipalities interpret the rules differently, at the expense of the lives of unvaccinated people. Effectively make decisions that may be made.

Waiting for a jab has already caused great pain and resentment, and Boris’ goal of 200,000 people a day has only reached yesterday, the day the virus finally killed more than 100,000 people.

At the age of 74, I’m in Tier 4. Millions of more valuable citizens are in line. My phone is fully charged 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and an alarm sounds every morning in case I receive a slot-providing text from the NHS. I will drop everything and crawl anywhere. So far, no. In my area, 27% of people over the age of 80 (about 1 in 4) are vaccinated, so there will be even more disturbing days for me and millions of other people. ..

So can Britain’s largest bluff fulfill his promise that jabs will be offered to 13.9 million vulnerable people and everyone over the age of 70 by February 16th?

I couldn’t be more excited that the Queen, Prince Phillip, Captain Tom, and Joan Bakewell all had jabs, but if the past form goes by, February 16th could come and go. .. It couldn’t be achieved for any kind of unlikely reason. This time, you’ll run out of clipboards for the inevitable shapes that each jab needs.

Currently, the UK has 21 million doses of the three major vaccines, more than enough to meet the mid-February deadline, but the deployment has proven to be sporadic and heterogeneous. .. Some regions have completed and are moving ahead in the first top category of vulnerable and very elderly people. Some GPs have complained that they will not be able to move beyond the 1970s due to the withholding of further vaccine supplies.

In London, the mayor complains that the program is progressing at a slower pace than Yorkshire and the northeast.

Boris, who made a big fuss about bringing in the army, finally acted wisely and asked major pharmacies to help manage the jab. Why didn’t he think of this early?

Most of us use local pharmacists for flu jabs, but this is not an easy task. So far, only six pharmacies can provide vaccines. All big branches of boots and super drug chains. However, there are also 11,500 high-street pharmacies in the UK, many of which can easily comply with the rules of social distance if Boris and Hancock carry out deployments through all bureaucratic formalism. Instead, delays and dithering cause anxiety and distress.

Whitty and Co continue to warn that vaccination does not mean returning to normal life by hugging, partying or snorting on the street. But it will allow us to visit lonely relatives we haven’t seen for nearly a year. It marks the beginning of hope and the light at the end of a very long tunnel.

It will regain my confidence in traveling by public transport, eating out, shopping, and visiting friends-all of which I miss very much.

But before I get a jab, the very vulnerable, 80+ and 75+ are prioritized. In addition, “key worker”, what does that mean?

Stuart McNeill, the founder of the Knightsbridge Circle (pictured), does not completely repent, claiming he is a “pioneer” in promoting new forms of luxury travel. His supply of Pfizer and Sinofarm vaccines comes from India and the United Arab Emirates, and he is considering adding another destination, Marrakech, Morocco.

Like most of Boris’s rules-for example, about “staying local” for exercise-it’s intriguingly ambiguous. What exactly is the “important” job? There is no doubt that the bends in your life rules are widespread.

Does it include all hospital staff, including staff who fry chips and collect bottles in the cafeteria? Pen pusher and bean counter? Does that mean our privately owned care facility and its relatives’ high-paying bosses? There is talk of some care facility executives receiving jabs in front of workers. Why does the NHS Trust or NHS Cuango boss need to receive a jab in front of all nurses and doctors? Are Parliamentarians a major worker?

Like everything in life, the combination of rarity and anxiety leads to cue jumps by those who are connected to the rich.

London’s Private Travel Club (£ 25,000 a year) offers members private jet flights to Dubai, where they receive vaccines, stay in luxury condominiums for 21 days, then receive booster jabs and return home. I will.

The cost is said to be around £ 40,000. Stuart McNeill, the founder of the Knightsbridge Circle, does not completely repent, claiming he is a “pioneer” in promoting new forms of luxury travel. His supply of Pfizer and Sinofarm vaccines comes from India and the United Arab Emirates, and he is considering adding another destination, Marrakech, Morocco.

What is the morality of taking the vaccine that people really need and selling it to the highest bidders? McNeil has no worries about not booking anyone under the age of 65 on his trip.

On Harley Street, there is no doubt that malicious private doctors are already secretly offering jabs to wealthy patients for thousands of pounds.

In Oldham, on the other hand, no one commented on how pensioners and other physically and mentally vulnerable people would line up by providing vaccines to homeless people.

Boris has never really planned how to deal with a virus that continues to mutate. He works in fire mode with big promises and hollow Churchill rhetoric.

Since the Prime Minister is also a rule vendor (biking last weekend, for beginners), it’s no wonder that ideas are infecting the rest of us.

Don’t be surprised to discover that getting a Covid Jab can depend on who you know and what you earn.

There is social unrest and endless criticism unless someone takes control to ensure that these urgently needed doses of vaccine are distributed fairly, evenly and efficiently.

Who are we because we can’t trust politicians?
