"The Government has responded to the petition you signed – “Prevent any restrictions on those who refuse a Covid-19 vaccination”.

Government responded:

There are currently no plans to place restrictions on those who refuse to have any potential Covid-19 vaccine.

After clean water, vaccination is the most effective and crucial public health intervention, and a cornerstone of public health that we must not take for granted. It is vital that a significant proportion of people who are offered take up a Covid-19 vaccine in order to protect themselves as well as other vulnerable individuals. Averting a second wave is a key priority for the government and high take up of a vaccine when available will greatly contribute to that.

Immunisations save thousands of lives every year by preventing outbreaks of serious infectious diseases and, in cases such as smallpox and polio, eliminating diseases in the UK altogether. Since the introduction of the measles vaccine in 1968, it is estimated that 20 million cases and 4,500 deaths have been averted in the UK. From 1970 to 2017, it is estimated that rubella vaccination has averted 1,300 babies being born with congenital rubella syndrome and 25,000 terminations. With further innovation and the development of new vaccines, even more lives could be saved.

We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to do the right thing for their own health, and for the benefit of the wider community. There are currently no plans to introduce a Covid-19 vaccine in a way that penalises those who do not take up the vaccine. However, the Government will carefully consider all options to improve vaccination rates, should that be necessary.

The UK has a world class national immunisation programme which is constantly reviewed and updated to reflect the changing nature of infectious diseases and provide the best protection for the public. All vaccines used in the UK are thoroughly tested, meet strict safety criteria and are carefully monitored after they are introduced into the national programme. Our evidence-based immunisation programmes are informed by the advice of our work leading expert committee – the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which reviews a wide range of scientific and other evidence, keeping the vaccine schedule safe and relevant.

Immunisation offers everyone a chance at a healthy life from the earliest beginnings and into old age. It saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognised as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions. High uptake of a Covid-19 vaccine is the best way we have, to protect our health, our jobs, and our economy at large.

I know moobs has been quoting Hitchens a lot and I agree with most of what he says. This commentator however, I'm inclined to believe almost EVERYTHING that he says: -

That's very good, the UK, well mainly London is easily the most corrupt place going, when you start to read in to it and connect the dots it all makes sense.

I must be having a whoosh moment but I don't even understand this sentence. Can anyone explain? It may be inexplicable right enough but my imagination certainly doesn't stretch this far.

If they ask why I'm refusing the vaccine I will say because I don't trust the government and big pharma. Hopefully that won't attract the heavies and a compulsory vaccination thereafter.

I read that in the Guardian. Very good article and pretty fucking scary. 

I haven't bought a newspaper for a very long time but I donate to the Guardian every month. I don't even know the price of a paper these days but they seem to have a wide range of contributors and are not afraid to challenge the establishment view, which was what I naively thought was the whole point of a free press.

As predicted no fans anywhere in Scotland because there are cases in Glasgow. The complete opposite of what she did when Aberdeen had an outbreak. Not political though 🤣

Good post. I wonder how many Aberdeen and Ross County fans, matchday staff, backroom staff, players, management and media are showing symptoms, yet alone tested positive for this "ghastly" virus, after being in attendance at Pittodrie and Victoria Park respectively on Saturday.

Has the test data been published yet? I take it, of course, this is how the Scottish Gocernment arrived at its objective, non-political decision. I don't expect anything less🙄.

Good article. I admire folk like that with the huge courage to expose wrong and sacrifice their lives for what is right.

 

On another matter minijc, who are the "cool" guys in here? And who are the sultans? No PM please - I don't believe in that shit - let's keep it open. I'm seeing a couple of cliques already and I'm on a mission.

The Sultans (RIP) were Poodler, Boof Ebbe and their associates.  The cools guys on here, I don't know, that comment was aimed at Cavey and his constant sniffing of people that are popular on here, I don't think anyone that posts on here is cool, there are plenty that are sound people that I get on with away from here IRL.

Ok thanks. It's good to know that the cliques aren't organised. I don't know who the "popular on here" are either nor does it matter. Business as usual. Challenge stupid posts. The stupid take it personally. It was ever thus and always will be. Cheers.

Sorry but why the fuck are we putting up with this complete ineptitude and lack of leadership? Somethings got to give surely, that’s a government not fit for purpose. Same as those cunts in Westminster, just making things up as they go. I’ve never been as convinced as I am now just to ignore everything they say and live my life as freely as possible, flouting every single restriction imposed upon us by these charlatans. Fight it don’t.

Even Sky News reporting today that while case numbers are up, deaths are still near zero.

 

A casedemic just as Paddy reported.

 

The pandemic is over, but governments need to maintain their grip.
