Which one did you get though?

He got the one that's administered anally by large dildo. At least that's what the strange man in the closet told him was happening.

Today's award for utter shite patter goes to...........🙄

I had a very interesting/worrying discussion with a Polish guy in my work during the week.

He had been in hospital just before Christmas with a mild asthma attack and, after being stabilised, was offered the Covid vaccine.

A very firm "no"....................I asked him why..................."Very bad, you don't know what it will do to you"

I said bit Covid could kill you, he wasn't convinced Covid was real.

Him, and his family, were not going to have the vaccine. 

With Europe talking about further waves I wonder how much of the spread is down to people not being willing to have the vaccine?

People are more scared of what it might do to them rather than what it could do for them by listening to perhaps the wrong people and hype.

I only had a bit of a bad head and arm a little sore for a couple of days but if it means we all get back to sort of normal so be it. Anti vac people should be given a big bell to walk about with imo, shows how much you think about others😡

As for EU, if AstraZeneca vaccine had been EU wholly developed then it would have been best thing since sliced bread  just another childish political battle over brexit I'm afraid and will cost them in lives and in an economic sense, thank god we got out. And I at time of vote was a remainer.

31st of March for me.

Having spoken to a few mates across Scotland, we're at the mid-fifties just now. My brother who is a couple of years younger gets his mid-April. So looks like Fifty year olds should be by end of April, If supplies hold up.

My parents, both in late 70's , had no side effects whatsoever.

Hoping the non-wimpy genes haven't skipped a generation.:)

Never had a problem with getting inoculations or getting blood taken.

I know a couple of people, with underlying medical conditions, in their early 30's who have had it, with no side effects whatsoever.

My wife , who is younger than me, has had both doses, and again had no side effects.

In fact, the only person I know who has been badly affected was my 78 year old father in-law , who became so weak, he couldn't get out of his bed for 24 hours.

I'm crossing my fingers that your genome wins in the end.🧬

The sore arm has nothing to do with the vaccine, it's because it's an intramuscular injection - the quickest way to get the vaccine into the bloodstream.  Most vaccines are given as an intramuscular injection.  The sleepiness is the vaccine.  Most folk I know who have had the jab have a period about 1 or 2 days after the jab when they just feel as if somebody has found their off switch.

Any pain is a combination of muscular injury and an immune response to the type of vaccine administered.

One of my mates told me that if you are an unpaid carer you can register for the vaccine. I have just registered (I care for my son) and await a response, thought I’d share because I bet many buds will currently qualify under that rule if they don’t already have the vaccine

I tried to do that and was informed I already had an appointment. Waited a week and still no blue envelope. Phoned up on Saturday and they told me my date. My work colleague registered and got his vaccine within four days. However, I have to wait two weeks longer, with the risk of passing on infection, because I already have an appointment. My brother has to wait a month! Another system that doesn't work properly.

Cheers for the feedback, looks to me that it might just come down to pot luck!!

A year since lockdown.

It's worth taking a step back for a moment.

We've managed to vaccinate half the country and almost all of our vulnerable people from a standing start in just a few months.

There's a lot to grumble about regarding our handling of the pandemic.

The vaccination program certainly isn't one of them.

A few petulant, idiotic teachers and policemen disgracefully wittering on about how they should have been allowed to jump the queue shouldn't detract from the largest and most successful vaccination rollout in living memory.
