It's more than age. I don't think many could get a Dr's letter no matter what their age. Are you volunteering? and could you get the Dr's letter?  

 

We, I mean I, signed up first day. 

I'm game. My doctor would sign anything.😉

 

FWIW, we both get tested once a week. Did one this morning

Curious why you'd get tested once a week? It will be interesting to see/hear what kind of medical clearance will be required. And saying your Dr would sign anything........wow!

But I have yet to hear of anyone receiving an invitation.

 

I volunteered.  And I volunteered (and was accepted) into the Pfizer vaccine test.

 Thank you for volunteering for the Pfizer vaccine tests.  Appreciate it very much.  Hopefully we, older couple, will be able to receive the vaccine VERY soon!!  Thanks to your help and all the other volunteers.

I know someone who got an invite. She is not Pinnacle and didn’t volunteer. Nor did she accept.

I am 68, and my wife will turn 70 next month.  It's been an interesting experience.  And, if we got the real vaccine (this is a double-blind test, so you never know), our experience is that we didn't even have much soreness at the vaccination site.  Pfizer has told us that when they unblind the test (which they will do when the vaccine is approved) that if we got the placebo, they will have us come in and get the real vaccine and transfer us to the safety-followup protocol.  The good news is they pay us $119 each every time we have to go to the testing site, and $5 every time we use their app to report our health for the last week. 

 

A funny thing:  Pfizer says the control group took longer than they expected to reach the 150 or so infections they needed to judge efficacy.  Apparently those of us who volunteered did not assume we were immune and continued with good health practices.  Remember, there were 45,000 people in the test, half of whom they gave a placebo.

 

They are still recruiting young people 12-17.
