Just read that one should refrain from drinking alcohol for 2 days prior and 2 weeks after the Covid vax.  Well that’s me shot then ...... they should have told me a month ago before my trip to the Forest! 

Well I'm pickled now and my jab is tomorrow afternoon. Does this mean that the jab won't work or will something happen to me?

Blame Mick2Me... I did and I think I got away with it.... :)

 

As for booze and the jab.  I've already commented here that if it was a real issue, I reckon the NHS would be shouting about it. but they aren't.

Saw (again) on the midlands news that in Leicester takeup of the vaccine amongst the asian and black communities is considerably lower than amongst the white population.


Explains why they are continually around the top of the “league” table of cases and not coming down much.

Take up in Nottingham must be good.  Yesterday, of the ten local venues, none were showing any future appointments available. Today only Forest is showing a few; computer still says no for the rest.  Anyone desperate can go to Derby or Mansfield though.

I got my sticker!

 

I applied online, put my postcode in when asked, the only Nottinghamshire centre available to me was Pinxton. Everything else was in Derbyshire, even as far away as Derby City Centre. I went to Horsley Woodhouse. Although NG16 postcode does go into derbyshire, I wonder if this is being done to make the figures look better for Derbyshire

When I had mine a couple of weeks ago I booked through Swiftqueue and had a choice of times within about 24 hours. If I'd gone via the NHS system I would've had to go to Horsely Woodhouse, but with a couple of days notice.

 

It looks as though the current block of candidates (under 65) are taking it up in a big way.

Had a bit of amusement to myself while sitting in the queue for the jab. Had a look around at everyone else in the waiting area and queuing outside and suddenly realised that everyone was 64

Talking with my brother the other day  who lives in Germany, he actually gave GB praise, and coming from him that means we have a gold star. You see his mother in law is 82 and she as yet to have her first viruis jab, while here in the UK we are now giving jabs to 50 ---60 years old (might have changed now ) When I do speak to my borther conversation goe's well in Germany, and I don't know if you do this/that in the UK.  Well I got a little cross one day and just told him, GB is not a 3rd world County you know. but It was like talking to a wall. Hello Wall.   He has lived in Germany since being 30ish but he forgets his roots.

I have heard (from a reliable source) that locally they thought it would be okay to go to 40+ but totally underestimated response so they revised to 50+ within a matter of a few hours. As of now, only four of the ten local sites are showing appointments available.  They are going to honour appointments made for the young ones this morning.

It remains to be seen whether there is a rise in those declining the jab due to the unfounded scaremongering about AZ and blood clots.
