I believe they were trying to clarify some earlier confusion. Essentially you were "valid" if you were a particular age or were hitting that age in the current year. Does it help? It might have but there are so many ifs, ands, and buts everybody is probably confused. Age, hot spots, profession, doctor's recommendations, pharmacy vs clinic .......Why do you suppose they felt it was necessary to spell this out?
Appointment booking for COVID-19 vaccine clinics is currently open to adults 62 years-of-age and older (i.e., born in 1959 or earlier).
Maybe I need to chill out a bit but are they saying people are too dumb to know what year they were born?
If you were born any time after April in 1959, you're not 62 yet.
I was born in December of 1960 and guess what? I'm not 61 yet...
It would be more clear if they left that ie section out completely in my opinion.
All I know is that I'm booked for tomorrow but today I have been reading about a lot of cancellations due to shortages.
