  1. So I got offered the coronavirus vaccine because my former employer, an individual who is totally deaf and blind, was successful in his efforts to be recognised as a priority case. I turned it down because I don't think it's fair for me to "jump the queue" when I rarely work for this guy anymore (it's been over a year). But how fucking awful is it that he had to fight so hard to be recognised?

    It's worth having a read of this article about him. And if not that, then let me summarise; he is totally 100% deaf and blind. He runs a bicycle repair shop from his home, where it's just him and one support worker. The support worker is required to to sign on his hands to communicate. For almost a year, the government would not recognise him and others like him as high-risk of being affected by the pandemic.  He had to fight hard to be recognised and offered when the vaccine when it became available.

      Yep. Our country really doesn't think people like him exist.
