    Much of the vaccination delays seem to be due to ridiculous red tape within the civil service and NHS.
    ****ing ridiculous.
    It seems that the medical profession and scientists are split on this 2nd jab delay.

    Who to believe?

    Perhaps I’m just a gullible mainstream media sheep but that whole site just comes across as slightly, for want of a better word, mental.

    I didn’t pay it any attention to be honest, just clicked the video. Not sure it matters really though, unless the video is fake.

    **** knows mate. I’m happy to see the army getting involved in logistics. And almost everywhere except Israel seems to be encountering big problems in getting people jabbed, we aren’t doing too bad comparatively (though I know we aren’t meant to compare). Many ups and downs to go yet. But in a couple of weeks I move from priority group 8 to group 7 simply through getting older! Yay!

    From what I’m hearing from my mates and colleagues in the US, not just about the fiasco in Washington, they have no idea what will hit them if the fast spreading variant takes hold there. The vaccination plan is essentially non existent.

    I can’t argue with that.

    Apparently we've vaccinated more people than the whole of Europe, so I suppose we're doing ok.
    Let's hope the ramping up goes well.
    I won't hold my breath!

    It does seem that we're doing better than many others in getting vaccinations done, but there seems to be a lot of frustration regarding the patchiness of the roll-out. I've heard nothing yet on where I fit into the programme, I would have thought that I might move up the priority ladder due to my upcoming hospital procedures.

    I see the Thursday clapping is to be resumed, this time to include support for other people providing vital services. As one who is providing home-schooling services for my 7 year-old grandson, this includes me, so get out there and clap!

    I doubt you’ll be shifting up mate, if you haven’t been told to shield. You are not immuno compromised, which is the big risk.

    I’ll give you a clap, in an ironic, post modern way. Risk of frostbite for anyone clapping gloveless round my way tonight.

    Yeah, I wasn't so much thinking about moving up the list due to any additional threat to myself, more making me less likely to endanger others when I go to hospital.

    Let’s hope that the current hospitalisations plateau and decline quickly. Apparently big increase in excess deaths for late December, over and above the COVID attributed ones, indicates that those with other conditions are either not going to the docs or not getting treated.

    Heard that the MHRA has approved two other drugs for use in the seriously ill today, both suppress the immune response to damp down the cytokine storm that Beth explained. Both designed for other things and one has failed in a trial for COVID treatment, they must have new evidence (trying to be generous on this). Still don’t understand why we haven’t approved the drugs available in the US which effectively keep the vulnerable from being hospitalised if they get the virus. These should be in every care home in the country.

    Not neccessarily pal - as I'm led to believe from the missus, the Pfizer one may cause issues with those patients whose immune system has been comprimised in some form, whilst the AZ will not (feel free to shoot me down @sb_73 ). She's been advised to take the Oxford/AZ vaccine when it is available (roll-out starts locally next week).

    Is that what they said Steel...to seek the modified virus(Oxford) rather than the mRNA one Pfizer?

    I thought none of these vaccinations approved to date reduce the transmission of the virus from one person to another, but reduce the severity of the illness?
