Looks like I got lucky!!
Good stuff. Given that carers like ourselves look after the most vulnerable in society, it's a good thing.

Half the population is classed as vulnerable.

Pretty much ALL of us are either in that category or are living with someone in that category or have someone in that category in our immediate family. For many of us, we fall into both caring and vulnerable categories but by and large you don't hear any of us constantly going on about it the way you do.

The absolute priority is to focus solely on getting the vulnerable themselves vaccinated and both governments have done an excellent job of doing just that. Nothing should distract from that right now.

Quit blowing smoke up your own arse and quit whining about the vaccination process. You are not uniquely affected by this so STFU and show a bit more dignity.

The media seizing on vaccination passports for pubs.

Really?

To start with Scotland, for some reason, has decided NOT to provide evidence of vaccination.

Secondly there is no way this could be policed by the majority of pubs, an non story IMO.

Pretty clear why no evidence is issued.  It's  very resource-intensive to build up a data base that people can use, which would probably be best done by a something like the DVLA licence check-code system.  Any paper certs are vulnerable to forgery and other abuse, apart from providing a reminder to the recipient serve no real purpose.

 

At some point, we will probably have a check-code system in place for travel, etc, but resources are concentrated on reducing current and future infections just now

The airport have just opened a testing centre at the security hall. No test, no way through security. £55 a test.

We received a card after the first jab - on which was written the drug that had been injected and its batch number.  This was repeated yesterday.

That seems a practical thing to do - so you can know that when its announced that a specific batch makes you grow horns and cloven hooves, you'll be able to relax knowing that it wasn't all down to you having been a very naughty boy.

 

It might get us served in pubs quicker...  :whistle

... having proved ourselves old enough to get jabbed early - thus old enough to be served alcohol.

I got my 2nd Pfizer jab from work today. The nurse told me that there have been a few people reporting swollen glands in the neck, groin and oxter (lymph system) unfortunately some women have went to there GP with this and been referred for mammograms. It appears the GPs are not up to date with potential side effects and how your lymph system works.

My wife has been administering all the vaccines and has been doing the childhood vaccination schedule for many years, recording the dose, batch and medicine name is done online in Scotland as a standard practice.  Scotland's system is apparently better than England's as they were approached by an existing IT provider who had an off-the-shelf package that was in trial almost a year ago and rolled out easily in November.

Anyhoo, what aspect of your wife's wellbeing, or lack thereof, can be attributed to "her" being a "very naughty boy"?

More talk about vaccinating children, not sure that's required. 

apparently cases are on the rise in 12-15 year olds.  Maybe variants are to blame for that.

Even if it is seen as less necessary, the balance in the risk equation is that the Pfizer jab is declared 100% effective in that age range in preventing disease so it's taking out a lot of potential carriers before they become infectious

For the Past couple of weeks, Indie Sage has predicted case rises in the school age cohorts.

Cooping kids up together in enclosed, poorly ventilated spaces gives opportunity to virus.

Agree but there is only so much schools can do. My middle lad is at high school and they test twice a week. When they started it was at school itself but now they send testing kits home. So Thursdays and Sundays are testing days in our house with me, son and mrs cs doing one. The school he goes to insist that they all register their results with school and anyone not doing that is classed as positive case and not allowed in school.

Schools can't be held accountable groups of kids gathering out of school hours, that's parents not being strict enough at this moment.
