Re: Who's had the vaccine?

I see the iom have had this issue tied down from the start https://www.gov.im/news/2021/jan/08/over-80s-invited-to-register-for-covid-vaccination/ Because it's an isolated island community able to make it's own laws and for the most part a fast acting well organised government, it gives fast outcome...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

Following on from Why can't they put out an open request to anybody in the next priority group to give their phone number if they can attend at very short notice (i.e. build a list of short notice priority people) - that would of course require some sort of organisation (e.g. Austria can do it, plan...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

Unfortunately there is as yet no clear evidence that having been vaccinated makes someone a lot less likely to transmit the virus, so it is just possible that transmission will continue at a high rate even when most people are vaccinated. The vaccines seem to protect most people from becoming ill f...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

I wont get my second jab until 17th April but in the meantime someone vulnerable will get my second jab as their first earlier than they would have done and thereby get some earlier protection. Its possible that overall I wont get as much protection from both jabs as I would have from the treatment...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

We're probably crying over spilled milk now anyway cos there won't be enough vaccine to give the shorter period jab. Anyway the government was forced into making that decision after making fatal decisions in August. They as much as admitted that literally on tv at the last briefing.

If someone like me can why can't most people? Why do people follow these idiots like sheep?

If you could show me the steps in your “deduction” it might help me to stop being sheep-like.

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

... I'll be honest I originally thought the government was right but the more I've thought about it the less sure I am. I'm now of the opinion that if the vaccine was tested with a 3 week gap then that's how it should be given, if nothing else we *know* that works. Whilst this is underway we could ...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

Not the only country. Delivery of vaccine to Canada has been interrupted due to expansion/construction at the Pfizer plant in Belgium; as a result many provinces here are delaying the second dose in order to get more first doses into more arms. So they got it wrong too -- the iom held back half the...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

Heard on the radio 4 news tonight that the uk is the only country in the world going against the manufacturers instructions to administer the second dose after 3 weeks. Not the only country. Delivery of vaccine to Canada has been interrupted due to expansion/construction at the Pfizer plant in Belg...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

I think people are often overlooking the effectiveness data for the Oxford vaccine - low 60%. which means if those care home residents were vaccinated with the Oxford vaccine high-30% will still be able to catch the disease (though apparently are unlikely to have such severe disease which does not ...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

.... There was a guy on the tv the other morning who ran several nursing homes. He said that despite being vaccinated they were still seeing the virus running through his homes and people were dying. I haven't done any research on this but if it's true then it's pretty worrying. I think people are ...
