Could the increase in people having blood clots be because some people have been sitting around too much in lockdown?  Just a thought, but if that is put forward as a possible reason at some point, just remember you read it here first!  
i don’t suppose that would ever be put forward as a possible reason, though, because people always prefer to blame something like a vaccine rather than their over sedentary lifestyle (just as they prefer to blame lack of money for their obesity instead of other contributory factors.  Some people seem to think that eating fatty,sugary snacks & drinks and sitting around is OK, instead of eating smaller healthier meals and getting a bit more exercise).  
Sorry, I don’t know where that came from... it’s not my usual style!

I thought exactly the same today Margie.  
Our ‘difficult’ daughter-in-law sent me a WhatsApp message last night, just as I was going to bed, a news article stating that Marvin Hagler had passed away the other day as a result of the Covid vaccine.  I didn’t respond but I couldn’t get to sleep because I wanted to find something to prove her wrong.  So I googled Marvin Hagler and the first item that came up was an article stating that his wife was denying such an allegation and found it upsetting that people were saying the vaccine was to blame for his death.  I then googled the source of the message d-in-l had sent me and sure enough it came from Renegade Tribune, an American site promoting conspiracy theories, you know ..... 9/11, flat Earth, Covid, anti-vax, etc etc.

I find this business of the European countries stopping the AZ being administered a bit suspicious? There must be a motive, unless the WHO and most experts are wrong. Money and Politics - even envy?

Our Federal government have announced that vaccinations for the over 70's will begin next week for anyone with a pre -existing medical condition. Apparently a liking for single malt scotch is not an allowable reason.

One slight problem is that instead of setting up special clinics they have decided to do it through GP surgeries. A great idea but you cannot get an appointment at many surgeries for any non urgent illness in under 4-5 weeks. Another example of politicians being totally divorced from reality.

PP they are doing it to investigate . The investigation apparently ends tomorrow. Virologists  are saying that the vaccine is safe. So really it just a caution they havent definitely stopped it. You probably get an exaggerated version than us.

I agree, there's a hidden Covid agenda here. The success of the UK's vaccine inoculation programme compared with the EU's abysmal progress and the EU's continuing post Brexit spitefulness campaign.

Weve just adhered to the vaccination list online. Ive printed out 15 pages (for me, so have to print 15 for my husband too)

Twelve pages is the module for consent and the other 3 are scheda anamnestieca. I thought it would be a simple letter, email, telephone call or message to make an appointment but it seems to be more complicated. The local chemist was doing the preliminaries but all computers were blocked. What I want to know is how does it work in UK. I know in Italy theres a lot of beaurocracy(sp) especially with signatures etc. Thanks in advance for any info.

In a FB group I look at, someone mentioned that during the last year they’ve had almost nothing in the way of a cold or sniffle or sore throat…..and several other people since added similar comments.

 

For the last few weeks I’d been wondering if I was the only person who’d noticed that, so it’s nice to know I’m not alone. 

 

Because we’re wearing masks, and not mixing closely with other people so much, we’ve all become cold-free.

There seems to be a couple of systems but for me it was a letter from my GP giving me details and phone number.

Rank and was offered a choice of four slots four a few days hence. Warned not to arrive to early i turned fifteen minutes early, answered a few questions and because they running a little in front went straight in.

 

Others can tell you of the Swiftqueue  system, I have no experience of it. Hope you soon get sorted...

I had mine via Swiftqueue. It was ultra-simple.

 

I received a text message inviting me to go to the website. I logged in, found my nearest centre, looked at the available dates & times, picked one, and booked it (the next day).

I booked through Swiftqueue as others very simple, no downloading of any paperwork, no Ts & Cs to read.

 

I don't remember signing anything, only having a quick chat with a Doctor immediately prior to the jab.

I've never signed anything in relation to a Flu jab and I've had 5 of those over the years.

 

The situation here may be different as it's the NHS that are in control of all vaccinations.

In Italy I'd guess there are multiple companies / organisations involved.

 

My Son and Daughter in Law should be getting thiers soon in the U.S, it'll be interesting to see what they have to do.

Although I dislike mask wearing in shops it’s only for a short time and if it does prevent the spread of cold type infections it may well become a common practice in future. I’ve certainly not had any cold symptoms this winter nor do I know anyone who has. I believe the wearing of masks is prevalent in Japan even before the current pandemic.

I was the same as Cliff Ton really easy to book in and second appointment was also made at same time. At centre the girl at the desk I was sent to took some details, then a nurse came and spoke to me, both asked if I still wanted to go ahead with the jab, then the person giving the jab came and it was done. Pfizer so had to go to another room and sit for 10/15 minutes to make sure I was okay and then home. 
The person giving the jab looked like a nurse but I must say it was quite painful think she needed more practice. No particular side effects except for an aching arm. 
It was all very efficient and quick. Great respect for all those volunteers making it so.

Friend of friend is on Security at the Lenton Vaccination centre.

She's only in her 30's and got an end of the day leftover jab some weeks ago, as did quite a few others.

They weren't previously on any priority list.

 

And re flu, it's been reported in a few Countries round the World that flu is down.

 

I have the flu jab and have never previously had proper flu but have always had an annoying 2 or 3 day blocked nose thing.

Not this year tho'

If your switched on & want the jab it's not hard, most of the younger ones @ work have used the "I'm a career" route on https://www.swiftqueue.co.uk/nottinghamc19v-clinv.php no questions asked & beat all the over 40s & 50s waiting for a doctors note to it, I get the impression they would prefer everyone jabbed & are turning no one away?

RR we don't have anything like swift queue. We are now on the list and await a call of some kind. 

BTW AstraZenica vaccine, there was only ONE lot that has been stopped, the other lots are being continued. So it isn't as bad as it sounds.

Apparently,  there has been no cases of flu this year !

That’s because none of us are mixing to pick it up anywhere.  Still plenty of Covid cases though, which doesn’t make sense does it?
