It's unfortunately quite normal for people in their age group to be vaccinated right now. Unfortunately, in continental Europe many people over the age of 80 (priority group!) have still not been vaccinated since enough vaccines, though ordered, have not been delivered yet. Whose fault that is exactly is a cause for contentious debate, but it's definitely not unusual.
I applaud them for not taking advantage of their position to get vaccinated earlier and for waiting in line with regular people at the vaccination centre.
