I’m 66 have RA and take methotrexate. Anyone know when I should get covid jab? Thank you
Good morning @Kerina a warm welcome to the Versus Arthritis Online Community.
You have Rheumatoid Arthritis and take Methotrexate and are wondering when you will get called for your COVID vaccination.
If you look at this : COVID-19 vaccination first phase priority groups - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) it might answer your question.
I don't know whether this information might be of interest to you: Vaccines for COVID-19 – your questions answered (versusarthritis.org)
I hope it isn't too long before you get called. Please do take a look around the site and join in anywhere you wish. Our members are very supportive.

Hi @Kerina I'm in same boat as you - 64, RA, methotrexate. I had jab at GP last Friday & letter inviting me to book appointment at a mass centre arrived same day.
Can I ask if you've been shielding? That was why I was called in. I was classed as clinically extremely vulnerable. Both NHS centrally & GPs locally have lists of those shielding. If you're on it you should be hearing anytime now.
Sorry @Kerina forgot to add this. Letter I got was dated January 29th. You can try to book an appointment here if you're on shielding list https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
Provided a letter has been sent out you'll be able to book before you actually receive it.
