Vaccination invitation text message

Just had one come through to my phone inviting me to book as I have an underlying condition. The only underlying condition I think i have is that I’m 52. Anyone else get this message? Makes me wonder what the dr isn’t telling me!
...it is legitimate
"Dear Mr 666,
You have been invited for your first dose of the vaccine, if you have had the vaccine already please ignore this invite. If you have had any vaccine in the last 7 days, we will advise you to wait a week. If you have had a positive COVID test, please wait for the next available appointment 4 weeks from the test result. If you are on warfarin please make sure you bring your INR result with you. Please come at your allotted time, not early.

It wasn't my own surgery as they'd nominated one that worked out of a smallish local hospital to cover several surgeries as they had better facilities.
If you're not sure, give them a call.
Like I said, give them a call if you're not sure.
I'd heard i might be able to book, so I tried on the website and got an appointment. I felt a bit wrong doing it, but I didn't lie about anything, just followed the prompts. The next day my letter arrived telling me to book an appointment!
Mrs Slog is a bit younger, we booked hers a few days later, and the same thing happened on that one too, the letter was here the morning after.
The older I get, the better I was.
Like you I have no idea what my underlying condition is - I am on antibiotics for what my Dr has said is a non serious infection - I've no history of asthma, obesity etc.
Although to be fair, as an ancient cancer survivor, I don't think he needs any more help up the list.
