The yellow card stats are not that great re adverse affects so i will take my chances with Covid19 until the trials finish in 2023 and its been improved.

I haven't heard much comments about 'vaccine passport' these days.

I can only presume that it's dying a death and there will be no more on it cause it was a farce and ridiculous to try and even implement it.

Talked about it on the news this morning on BBC2 , showed Denmark rolling out a basic one for certain things with a more detailed one being worked on.

Israel have one in place but I think very few places are using it. As infection rates remain low there, I doubt there will be much change from that. 

The test for them might come if virus prevalence rises and they want to keep everything open while still stopping spread.

I am 42 min. Originally it was the first week of April, now it is the second week of May (for the first jab). The second one is now due by the second week of August having originally been scheduled for the start of July🤬.

Both governments have been perennially patting themselves on the back for the alleged successful rollout of the vaccination program and it really boils my shite to continually hear this when it is fucking propaganda🤬

The predictor said I would get my second Jab in May, I got my second Pfizer yesterday, 3 weeks early.

The side effects of the vaccine are pretty brutal, I had major muscle and joint pain. Lesser man would have struggled but I walked it off, just a warning for any pansies out there.

I said no to the Pfizer jab, British all the way for me. I'm no putting that shite in my veins.

The vaccine doesn't stop you catching or spreading it though I don't think?  Just stops you becoming ill?

Not sure. I think that was the initial belief. Not sure if they've done more research on it or not. 

Ive stopped listening/reading to every bit of Covid news these days, so it's entirely possible I've missed things.

My daughters granny caught it at the same time she did, the old girl had already been given the 2 jabs, barely registered as a mild cold, daughter was worse but still not so bad. The granny puts it down to the protection from the vaccine, given her age could well have been a life saver. Could be coincidence I guess.

Hopefully that positive outcome is an accurate reflection on the effectiveness of the vaccine on a bigger scale.

Spot on you received your second jab min👍.

I know the predictor is designed to just provide an estimate, however, it seems to be dragging on now. Patience is not one of my strong points though,😄.

They've opened an 'asymptomatic testing centre' along the road from me. Watch the figures go up so we can go back into level 4. Fucking complete nonsense.

Good advice. We’re clearly in a decent place but they keep rolling out the most pessimistic, negative, doom and gloomers they can find with predictions of third waves and mutant variants hiding in the shadows. Some ‘expert’ on today mentioning a possible summer wave which although not improbable doesn’t really square with how things went last year or give much credence to the effectiveness of the vaccine which a heathy majority should have received by then, at least in part.

I’ve said it before that the government need to show some faith in their own vaccine programme and that it will accomplish what it needs to do. There has to be a collective acceptance that it’ll be around for years to come and we’ll just have to get on with living with it. People aren’t going to keep accepting having these measures imposed on them ad nauseum.

Totally agree with your general point but I'm not so sure about the bit in bold.......

Agreed. We've had plenty to time now to get an effective track and trace system so there's no excuse that that, combined with the excellent vaccine progress shouldn't allow us to get back to something close to normal by the summer. 

Id be all but banning foreign travel too for the time being too, in order to protect our progress.

The levels system is just an inexorable path to lockdown. As long as we keep it going we'll end up in lockdown. No idea why anyone thinks otherwise.

Level 0 sums it up.

We're down to 4 new cases, 5 yesterday. Just about wiped it out in time for the travel ban to end. Queue minks from glasgow and the central belt arriving to infect us again. Should never be a nationwide thing, each area on merit is clearly the way to go.

I might be wrong but I can't see how we move down levels. As you open things up the virus spreads more so I can't see how you go down, only up. Add in asymptomatic testing and what do you get? Lockdown.

10 to 12 weeks you're supposed to get the second dose, didn't you have your first one 10 weeks ago ?

I've got another 3 weeks for my second.

I'm going to make a prediction. Come autumn Sturgeon will decide we need a 'short sharp lockdown' because of rising numbers. Boris will refuse to fund furlough and there will be lots of squabbling and chat about how we don't have control of all the levers etc.

Bookmarked

Nae sure where you're getting that from . It was always over 50'S by mid April , which they achieved . Then it's 45 to 50'S next so I'd say mid May for you is bang on
