So today I was lucky enough to get a vaccine.

Now I am eagerly waiting for day 4 to pass uneventfully.

Also wore my lucky shirt for the win.

Before going for my AZ vac I wondered about consent when the choice is either (a) consent to the AZ vac or (b) do not consent to the AZ vac. I thought about VIPIT and my discussion with a med friend about how many people that might be.
Him: if we vax say 10m with AZ and expected rate of VIPIT is 1:500000 (Buttery) then expect 20 cases and 6 deaths (assuming mortality of 30%).

I reflected that it was a risk number I was being asked to consent to, a risk of being one of the 6 in 10m c/f no severe covid/death

Today COVID-19 vaccination has opened for all Indian citizens above the age of 45.

There are many questions and queries coming. Trying to compile and answer few of them here. Feel free to keep on adding more #MedTwitter.

Can I get infected with even after getting both doses of COVID-19 vaccine?

Vaccines are highly effective in preventing an infection. But no vaccine can give 100% protection from getting an infection.
COVID appropriate behavior should be followed even after complete vaccination
Then why should I get vaccinated?

Vaccines reduce disease incidence in a vaccinated group compared to an unvaccinated group. How much reduction, depends on efficacy of that vaccine.

Getting a vaccine may also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19

Took my 67 year old mother for her vaccination today. We live in a small village in the Munsyari block of Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand. So went online to register her and the system allocated a time today 6th March afternoon at the local PHC. 2/n
The online registration was smooth and a quick sms came to her phone confirming her appointment. But when we reached the local PHC - the person at registration desk said “sorry we can not give you vaccine today” 3/n

1/ A year ago this month, I was hospitalized with #covid19 at @nyulangone for 17 days, including 6 on a ventilator.

Today I returned to give blood for a research study I’m participating in, run out of the #Vaccine Center.

#COVID19Vaccine #Covid
2/ I was enrolled in the study back when I was hospitalized at @nyulangone. This view from the waiting room today is pretty much the same view I had from my hospital bed.

3/ This was my fifth blood draw for the research study. They didn’t ask for much blood today, maybe half the normal amount.

1/14 Morning @SophyRidgeSky, just watched the interviews w/ @DominicRaab @annelongfield @timspector & @bphillipsonMP re #schoolsreopening fully on 8th Mar.

Discussions focused on dates, primary vs secondary, catch up plans, mental health concerns, vulnerable children....

Has the MSM been banned from mentioning mitigation measures?
Are British children/teaching staff different to those across the world?
3/NO FIGURES on how many children get #COVID19?
NO MENTION of how many become seriously ill, are hospitalised or die?
Absolutely NO WORD about the 1 in 7 or 8 children who get #LongCovid!
NO ADVICE for parents of children w/ diseases like Diabetes, severe Asthma etc.

1/ Such a pleasure to meet the fantastic multi-disciplinary team at Valley Park Surgery, Croydon, today. All are deeply committed to patients and incredibly passionate about delivering the #COVIDVaccine to the local community. Image
2/ Every single member of the surgery team has been trained as a vaccinator, and medical assistants Salma, Zainab, Huma and Tasin call patients and talk them through the #COVIDVaccination details, which is a great opportunity to allay any concerns. Image
3/ Huge thanks to everyone in our fantastic primary care teams across the #NHS, and to all #OurNHSPeople who are playing such a crucial part in protecting colleagues and communities from #COVID19

1/3 On Sat 6 Feb, our @ATMedics Whitechapel Health Centre team delivered an excellent #CV19 #vaccination service @elondonmosque. Several patients said they only came for their #COVIDVaccination as it was in the local mosque, being delivered by local GPs.
2/3 A 107 yr old lady attended, her daughter told us she had been hesitant but felt more comfortable since it was being delivered in her local community centre.

Awesome to collaborate with the #Mosque. We hope this will encourage more local people to come forward when invited... Image

Last week I was fortunate to have the opportunity to volunteer as a Spanish interpreter at a #YoloCounty #COVID19 #vaccination clinic. It was truly exciting to contribute to ending the #pandemic, and I thought I'd share what it was like. Photo of drive-thru vaccination area. (1/7 photo of drive thru vaccination area. volunteers in vests on
First the volunteers arrived (~50 of us), checked in, and were given vests with colors corresponding to our roles. We swore to support and defend the Constitution! Photo of Loyalty Oath. (2/7) #HealthForAll Loyalty Oath or affirmation to the US constitution and State
It was fascinating - we were organized to each perform relatively simple tasks individually and thus collectively performed the complex task of getting people vaccinated.

1/ Last wk I asked #medtwitter how to ⬇️ barriers to #covidvaccination in elders👇🏾. Reframe the question: Who’s at risk for missing the vaccine? #geriatrics must play a ⬆️ role. Amplifying: @wassdoc @geri_doc @LouiseAronson @sharon_inouye @MLRobertsonMD
2/@judith_graham writes on aging for @KHNews & wrote an excellent piece about the barriers to the #covidvaccine in older adults for @cnn 👇🏾. Honored to offer a quote alongside @PreetiNMalani & others. 🙏🏽

@UABNews @uabmedicine @UABSOM @DrVickersUAB @DrJeanneM @DrEllenEaton
3/ Stories like this one from @arghavan_salles & others highlight how sad the complicated vaccine rollout has been for older adults. And these are elders w/ physician children who are having difficulties.

Before my next #COVIDVaccination clinic volunteer shift this week(end) I wanted to reflect on my experiences from last week. I've been thinking a lot about it and trying to figure out what to say. I'll try to keep this 🧵brief and give the highlights
I had been waiting for the day I could work a #COVIDVaccination clinic for a year. Since this #pandemic started I've been ready to help get doses into arms, whenever safety and efficacy proved enough for an EUA.
Through 3 shifts I had a smile on my face and in my heart. I was so happy to greet every person and send them to that coveted chair where a nurse would administer their vaccine.

For my team, I greeted and checked paperwork on 250 ppl (yes I'm keeping count).

1/11 🧵 Just watched @BBCPolitics in utter dismay!

Waiting/hoping for SOMEONE to mention #VENTILATION or kids wearing #MasksInClassrooms, using EXTRA spaces to create #SafeSpacesToLearn...etc
Have all commentators been forbidden to mention these options, have they been gagged?
2/ If this ⬇️ is SAGE’s own assessment in Dec20.
3/ And we think this ⬇️ regarding risk dependent on location, time, masks etc.

Apologies for inactivity on Twitter. Our #PlymouthCOVIDCollaborative has been hard at work. The task: vaccinate 80 carehomes, 1800 patients, 2700 staff, across 17 GP surgeries, in 5 #primarycarenetworks IN 10 DAYS. What follows is a brief chronology of events /1
Tues 5th Jan: I was asked to join amazing #Plymouth PCN COVID Collaborative team as #COVIDvaccination coordinator for #carehomes.
Thursday 7th Jan: 1st 400 doses of #astrazenecca arrive
Monday 11th Jan: 1st of 80 #carehomes to have AZ vaccines piloted in @PathfieldsMG PCN
Tuesday 12th Jan: 3 other #primarycarenetworks - Drake, Waterside, and Mayflower - also pilot. Our city works well together and, true to Plymouth form, our #vaccteams are a mixture of teams from #primarycare and #communityservices (courtesy of @livewellsw) -thanks Livewell 🙏 /3

@MattHancock & @nadhimzahawi as one of countless frontline HCWs working w/ patients w/ #COVID19 this is really disturbing. We are now human guinea pigs in a #vaccine trial that we didn’t sign up to. Do you think this is morally or ethically acceptable? 1/
It reminds me that in Mar19 we were “advised” by @NHSEngland that we could #WearAMask “if we wanted to”. And then due to a scandalous lack of #PPE many of us were forced to buy DIY kit or wear bin bags to protect ourselves from a potentially lethal virus. 2/
I don’t want to get #Covid19, pass it on to my family/patients or get #LongCovid. I will be asking the @TheBMA for their opinion of using an un-trialled #vaccination regime for frontline HCWs, which seems to be completely irresponsible & reckless & unsupported by @Pfizer_UK 3/
