Well I hear your exultation Hoddom as you jab away down at the leisure centre. However perhaps you could have been more gainfully employed had you instead addressed the fact that many of the people you jabbed probably didn't need it and may well have had other diagnosed or probably undiagnosed serious life threatening condition that they cannot at the moment get treatment for from the NHS. Hundreds of thousands are being denied treatment due to the mad race to vaccinate everything that moves. Perhaps you might wipe your brow and pause to reflect on people with that dilemma. No one should be denied treatmet esoecially if it's life threatening. For many especially in younger age groups are not are they.771,500 vaccinated yesterday.
manic down the leisure centre again
To date not a single reactor in the 15 min waiting zone in 2.5 months.
The ‘shortage’ means we will be doing only around 300’000 a day for a couple of weeks
How many of the moaning minnies on here would have scoffed at the idea we could deliver 300,000 a day let alone +750k? Now they snipe at the ‘shortage’.
This nationalism re who gets and doesn’t get the jab is dangerous. Until take up is global and the proportion inoculated high the U.K. citizens remain at risk. It’s senseless to argue the EU, or anywhere else should wait or shouldn’t get it. The higher the prevelance the virus. This higher the mutation rate and the higher the chance of a mutation that is much more dangerous, more infectious and against which the vaccine fails.
As of yesterday, for an example of the problem, only 80,000 had been vaccinated in South Africa in total. 23 countries in Africa have no vaccine at all. Many African nations are pledged small numbers of vaccine- in the hundreds of thousands- from COVAX and from China.
A globally coordinated 10 year vaccination programme targeted at the places of most need would be the best way forward for us all. Sharing.
The alternative is that we lock the doors, pull up the shutters and isolate the U.K. no travel. extreme measures on import/export shut the ports, termini, airspace etc and watch.
I note too that there were demonstrations around the world against the ridiculously extreme measure we are having to endure with 80,000 of so demonstrating in London. Even the BBC reported it. Seem some are beginning to wake up at last.
