If I had to go into hospital with it, the chances are I wouldn come back out.”I have to have take care at all times because of my disabilities. I was absolutely terrified of what would happen to me if I caught the virus.”As Ms Bagworth is at extreme risk to Covid, she has been shielding at home with her 69 year old mother since the start of lockdown.As well as having severe asthma, Ms Bagworth suffers from Ehlers Danlos syndrome, a connective tissue disorder which has caused her to become wheelchair bound and has significantly impacted her immune system.Since March, she has only left the house five times four of those were for health appointments and one was to see some family members at a distance on Christmas day.However, those classed as “clinically vulnerable” to Coronavirus are only in group four of the Government vaccine priority list along with the over 70s.This puts them below over 75s, care home residents and frontline health and social care workers in the queue for a vaccination.Therefore millions received their jabs before Ms Bagworth, which she felt was unfair considering her potentially fatal susceptibility to the disease.”What really annoys me is that we have had to shield and be incredibly careful to protect ourselves and we are still not high on the Government list of priorities,” said the Brownie group leader.Vickie and her Brownies have made more than 600 toiletry bags for hospital patients dueing the pandemic”My carers were given their vaccines even though they have no health conditions, and they still posed a risk because they were coming in to care for us and could be carrying the virus without knowing.”It makes no sense to vaccinate carers if they still going to be dangerous to the people they looking after.
