  1. My former French teacher at the JNI was was W Steel Brownlie who landed as a tank commander on the Normandy beaches and advanced through northern France into Belgium and Holland. He was later the CO of the Ayrshire Yeomanry TA Depot in George Street. I remember him taking my class of 30+ boys on an afternoon visit to the depot and letting us crawl all over and inside the tanks. If I remember rightly he had been awarded the Military Cross.
  2. It appears that the truth is that all of the hospital's intensive care beds are full. No mention of total number of Covid cases in the hospital. https://www.itv.com/news/2020-10-12/covid-inside-blackpool-victoria-hospital-where-intensive-care-unit-is-at-full-capacity
  3. Covid 19 is a serious illness which is likely to tip the balance in people with underlying conditions.
  4. But would they have died at this time? probably not.
  5. Would they all have died of something else if they had not developed Covid?
  6. Who is eligible and how you can get an appointment Child aged 6 months to 2 years with an eligible pre-existing health condition Children in this group will be identified and the local Pre-School Immunisation Team, will contact the parent/guardian with an allocated appointment for their child. Child aged 2 to 5 (and not yet at school)* child must be aged 2 on 1st Sept 2020 All parents/carers of 2-5 year olds will receive a letter with an allocated appointment in the next 8-10 weeks. Primary school aged children When schools returned in August all primary school aged children should have received a consent pack to take home and parents / guardians were asked to complete and return completed consent forms to school within seven days. Flu immunisation sessions will be delivered in school from the beginning of October until mid-December. If a child misses their flu immunisation at school, for whatever reason, a flyer will be sent home with information about how the parent / guardian can arrange an appointment for their immunisation. For all children in the above three groups, we are asking parents/guardians to make every effort to attend their allocated appointment so that we can do everything possible to help maintain physical distancing at clinics and ensure that all children can be vaccinated ahead of this year’s flu season. Please be aware that GP practices will not be able to arrange appointments for your child, so if an appointment needs to be rearranged, the parent / guardian should call 0141 201 4190 from 23rd September onwards. 12 to 17 years old with an eligible health condition If a child / young person in this age range has an eligible health condition they should telephone 0141 532 8768 from 23rd September onwards to make an appointment for their flu vaccination. 18 - 64 year old with an eligible health condition Individuals in this group will be contacted by your GP practice or the Health Board with appointment information. If you have not been contacted by the end of October with details of an appointment for your flu vaccination, you should contact your GP practice. Pregnant women All pregnant women will be offered flu from maternity services. If you are pregnant, please speak to your midwife for more information about getting a flu vaccination. Aged 65 years or over Housebound If your GP practice has identified that you are permanently housebound and are aged 65 years or over, you do not need to attend your allocated appointment. It would be very helpful if you or your support worker / carer telephone 0141 201 4180 from the 23rd September onwards and advise that you will not be attending you appointment so that the slot can be released. 55 - 64 year old (not yet otherwise eligible) If you are in this group, you will receive a letter with an allocated appointment within the next 8-10 weeks. Please make every effort to attend your allocated appointment so that we can do everything possible to help maintain physical distancing at clinics and ensure that we can vaccinate all eligible individuals in a timely and safe way. There will be no drop-in clinics as we need to manage the number of people at each clinic to ensure physical distancing. Please do not contact your GP practice, as they will not be in a position to give you an appointment. Unpaid adult and young carers If you are aged 18-64, you can get your free flu vaccine from one of the participating Community Pharmacies. Look up the list of participating pharmacies, choose a pharmacy and call them to make an appointment. If you are aged 12-17, you (or your parent/guardian) should telephone 0141 532 8768 to make an appointment for your flu vaccination. Household members of someone who is shielding If you are aged 18-64 and live in the same house as someone who is shielding, you can get your free flu vaccine from one of the participating Community Pharmacies.

If you are aged 12-17 years old and live in the same house as someone who is shielding, telephone 0141 532 8768 to make an appointment.

  7. Community Vaccination Centres – where will I get my vaccination? If you are to have your vaccine at a community vaccination centre, you will be assigned a venue within your Local Authority area.

  8. And there's a huge gap between August 26 and Sept 15. Do you suggest they sopped counting during this time.
  9. The statistics for the last week in Sweden suggest something different.
  10. If you had looked at the figures on the gov.scot website you would have seen that the number of positive tests in the 7 days leading up to Sept 8 was 1087 out of a total of 67290 first tests; in the 7 days to Sept 14, 1206 positives out of 48165 tests; in the 7 days to Sept 21, 1877 positives out of 41850 tests - a marked increase in both the number and the percentage of positive tests. https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-trends-in-daily-data/
  11. The logic is that people in essential services such as shop workers, delivery drivers, police and emergency services are exposed to frequent contact with many members of the public and, if unvaccinated, are much more liable to spread the virus.
