Margie is right. I keep popping in to see how you all are. Thankyou all so much for your posts.   I'm afraid we are not very well the pair of us. This must be the 'Long Covid' that we hear a

Can I take it then that you are not planning to vote for the Cons or any political institution again?

I find it incredible that so many, so called, government ministers and those with influence are so stupid and lack any initiative and common sense for their given role.

 

Not really a subject for this thread but.  Even if I were a conservative.. which I'm not.. I would not vote for this lot again because Johnson sacked or alienated anything resembing talent in his party..over Brexit...which is why the likes of Williamson are tolerated, Patel 'rehabilitated' and Gove kept at a safe distance.

Sad to hear the death of Larry King. Apparently had Covid and cancer plus other complcations. I didn't follow him but still sad to see him go in that way.

Just had our vaccinations this afternoon.  No Waiting, very well organised and a competent person doing it.  Honestly never felt a thing - the needles are so fine these days....   We have had the AZ Oxford vaccine and I am now visualising it flowing through my system taunting my immune system to respond!

It will be at least Thursday, I read,  before the Notts vacine debacle is sorted. 'Lumpy' supply problems are blamed apparently. I also read in today's Times that almost half the people in high ethnic minority areas are refusing to be vaccinated because they are scared.

I am so envious of you (in a good way) having the vaccine. Don’t know when I will get mine, I am in the 4th tier, over 70’s. Nottingham doesn’t seem to be doing well in the jab stakes, supply problems or not.

Just been on internet to book master in for jab in nottinghamshire. I have booked him to-morrow at the forest recration ground,  if you look there are vacancies for the over 75 now. Just warning daughter in law who works pa doctors had her jab friday and has had a very bad reaction to it. Me my letter should arrive next week hope this info helps.

I think my husband did really well getting his jab at the Forest yesterday, seeing as the local news today said that vaccine centre was opening TODAY!  All this talk of them only dealing with over 80s for the next week is rubbish too, I looked on the website this morning and it said they are vaccinating over 75s. It seems I’ll still have a couple of weeks to wait for mine but I will be patient ...... glad I’m not over 75 anyway!

Oh dear, what did she do to need a tetanus jab?  I haven’t needed one for about 30 years when a rose bush attacked me.  
If she changes her mind about the Covid jab you perhaps need to struggle in with a Zimmer frame!

Yep.  I've spent part of my day trying to persuade people to get it.  A young black lady from the south east was posting on facebook trying to get other black people to get vaccinated.. but the opposition was frightening. The level of misunderstanding among some was appalling. And I should add that I think there are probably as many whites who think the same way.

I was reading one quote that 33 people have died in Norway 'from the treatment'. No source. no verification but these people believe this stuff.

I feel a bit cheated because a 'Cock up on the IT Front'.. to paraphrase Reginald Perrin.., means I'm left waiting until 7th Feb... when I should have been jabbed almost a week earlier.

 

However.. although that puts me behind all of my similarly aged neighbours.. it puts me ahead of many in other parts of the country... so I'll take that.

We were told vaccinations were being done by local gp's and chemists. I haven't heard of anyone that has already been vaccinated but now we hear that vaccine is being delayed and is in short supply by a few companies. It may go into a legal action against them.

There are rumblings that there will be a shortage of the Pfizer vaccine. Will we get a second jab at all? It would be helpful if there were some factual evidence about the effectiveness of a single jab. Just hoping that Politics is not supressing the science.

The Pfizer shortage is only a short term issue while they reconfigured the plant in Belgium to output at a higher rate.

It'll be back to previous rates of production and then far higher very soon, apparently.

 

The commitment is for 2 jabs so presumably as people are getting the second appointment they'll hold back on new first jabs and prioritise if there is another shortage.

I booked for an over 75 friend last night, first jab next Sunday second jab 11 weeks laer in April.

I think that one of the problems is that the EEC are threatening to impose controls on exports of the vaccine. They’re not our friends now you know. I trust we'll treat Oxford vaccine exports to them similarly.

I would say it appears the government made the right choice (for a change) In not joining in with the EU procurement of vaccines, at the time they were castigated for not doing so. Due to the present situation in Europe over the vaccines (or lack of) it seems it was a wise choice to “go it alone” as it were. Perhaps if they had been quicker in passing the vaccines they wouldn’t be in this position, they did insinuate that we were too quick and hadn’t done the necessary checks and they were going to do it “properly” at the time.
Chickens and roost comes to mind along with toys and pram. Just hope when it is my turn to get the jab it is the AZ one!
