I registered online on 21 March, received my vaccination dates on 8 April, had my first vaccination today, and the second will be on 14 May.
So if its c. 2 to 3 weeks in advance, we should be expecting appointments for unprioritized to be issued imminently and for the next 5 or 6 weeks, at least in AG which says the priority groups will be done in April and the unprioritized will be done in May and early June.

Given they said that the unprioritized will be done in order of registration, and I did mine within half an hour of registration opening (a day earlier than advertised on the Sunday), I really hope I get notification of my appointment in the next week or so for an appointment in early May. Especially since I put down every vaccination site in the Kanton.

The vaccination itself works much longer but leaves your body via a 5G stream.

Re: Coronavirus

I just received Pfizer at the main hospital in Malta, next dose in 3 weeks. I registered 5 days ago. My wife will get her second Moderna dose on Monday.
I think AZ is being reserved for the locals

Canton Vaud is accepting 50+ without any restrictions, so anybody residing in the canton & within that age group can sign up.

Re: Coronavirus

Got my first one today. Didn't seem to be very busy, only 2 admin windows being used and about 3 people doing the vaccinations. Maybe because it was lunchtime. Was quick though; arrived early and I had my jab 5 minutes before my appointment time.

mmmm. money?
Vaccine production is not a great money-spinner. A number of pharma companies have exited the vaccines space due to lack of profits.

Pandemics are no doubt good for business, in the same way as disasters allow insurers to increase premiums. New upstarts such a Moderna seem to be doing OK with vaccines

Drugs to treat cancer are where the money is.

A steady, reliable, never-ending stream of patients willing to pay anything...

Exactly, we kept being told this, but the jump in the Pfizer share price when the vaccine was announced told the story. $20 a shot to be put into millions/billions of people's arms on likely an annual basis. Zero liability, massive government investment for the development, accelerated approval etc. It doesn't get much better than that!

Re: Coronavirus

I got those free 5 home tests yesterday and have tried one of them today. While I was waiting for the result, my son used the red ink pen to draw an extra line on the test It looked quite real and did shock me for a second he said that that he got the idea from his friends but was not aware what they have done this for.

I learn every day. GB has borders with India.

And what does <<India is not currently on the UK's 'red list' of travel destinations.>> mean? GB forbids it's people to go places?
I mean "sorry, foreigner, you can't come in witouth a valid covid test result" is one thing but "oi, my citicen, you can't go there" sounds like DDR?

Interesting. In Zurich the registration date doesn't matter, they open appointments for all people from a certain group or multiple groups.
