Your post was extremely badly worded if you were looking for a healthy exchange of experiences.

It sounds like your circle/network have had a horrific time of it due to mental health issues, leading to suicides throughout the pandemic. That is truly, truly awful. Many of us understand the pain of that and you have been disproportionately affected. I think people on here have been sympathetic to that, even if they disagree with your overall viewpoint.

I think all anyone is asking is that you, or anyone, doubtful of the severity of Covid take a step back for a moment and consider, before posting, that there are plenty of people who have lost loved ones due to the virus and their loss is as equally raw and upsetting.

Similarly, lots of us know people who work in the NHS and have been worked to exhaustion throughout this and have seen some awful things due to the virus. It's all very well to say you live your life through your own eyes, but you dont need to go very far or extend your circle too much to see a bit more.

I hear all that, I'm simply wondering if there's anything different in how people are going about things.
I know a lot of people have seen a lot of covid cases near them, I find it interesting that people who have been following the rules and recommendations seem to be experiencing high volumes of cases in friends and family.
I'm just genuinely interested as to what caused this.

Not sure how many are experiencing 'high volumes' among friends and family.

More like just about everyone knowing at least some people who have been affected. My guess is that it's due to the virus being highly transmissible and it being virtually impossible to lock everyone down completely.

It still remains that the highly transmissible virus hasn't really come anywhere near me or people I know, I've literally spoken to one friend and she caught it in London.

I mean I've seen the odd person on Facebook but not in notable numbers and they are people I know but do not see a lot of in real life.

Either that or a bunch of people you know have had it and have been asymptomatic. How many have voluntarily gone for an antibodies test?

I don't have an issue with that as long as it is for the right reasons, i.e. Intensive care admissions are on a trajectory that can't be dealt with. But I am confused... Half the country, including the most vulnerable, have been vaccinated, and it looks like the vaccine is effective against the worst effects of the variants. So how come the discourse is heading the way it is? What am I missing here?

If the vaccines are working and there's a good uptake, there is absolutely no reason to take a step back.

The government can't hide from that.

Because some people are refusing the vaccine. This is the concern in areas in the North of England where there was a high number of those in vulnerable groups refusing the vaccine.

Also remember that it's only around 1 in 5 in Scotland who have had a second dose and I'm sure it takes a couple of weeks before it's effective (I may be wrong).

We also have to take into account other countries popular for holidays are far behind us. So we may be of little risk but we could be spreading it around them.

Due to work I got yeeted to a place which was already rife with it, the cat was absolutely out the bag and while lockdown was then announced, the company I then work for had people in shared accommodation which then created a mini covid paradise.

Ten people in the accommodation, 6 were vaccinated, four caught it including me.

I'm getting my vaccination tomorrow though.

If there are high numbers of people in vulnerable groups (which is more than half the population, lets face it) refusing the vaccine then we've likely got a looong way to go before we get to any sort of normality :(

Just watching the Scottish news and they are headlining case numbers, but not a single mention of hospital admissions or deaths. Presumably because it seriously undermines their headline story. Maybe the crystal ball can determine that hospitals are due to be inundated, but if so then surely the news would be trumpeting that fact?

Of the total number of deaths registered in week 18 (3 May to 9 May) there were 7 where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate. Of deaths involving COVID-19 in the latest week:
86% (6 deaths) were aged 75+, and 14% (1 death) were aged under 65.

Be interested to know whether COVID was the cause of the deaths or if they already had an underlying health condition being of the older generation, there’s no mention of that.

All the info can be found on travelling tabby website, including hospitalised, no in icu, r number, number vaccinated etc. Interestingly new addition is age range of recent cases. Most recent cases definitely on younger, on the whole, unvaccinated https://www.travellingtabby.com/scotland-coronavirus-tracker/

The problem I have with this government is that even the medical teams have an alternative to the government SAGE system. Why? Because the government are either blindly ignoring their advice on numbers or are being advised incorrectly. If my advice was not being taken I would walk away, but for some reason the professionals in direct contact with the government must be incompetent or gutless.
Singapore: a country on the Green list has a national lockdown as of last Monday. This was being prepared as many as 2 weeks ago in their infrastructure. Why is it still on the green list?
Addition to this is that my conference call to India this morning was very short with only one attendee. Everyone else has COVID or has a direct relative with COVID. Even the person in the call had COVID.

Out of interest, why would it benefit multiple world leaders to fabricate a story about COVID? Also, how would they ensure they hushed up thousands of clued up experts in this area?

I realise there's various theories about the moon landing, but that was one country and occurred before the internet existed. This would require multiple leaders and their cohorts to keep in line.

I think that`s a straw argument, Berry. By the time we reach our forties, EVERYONE has an underlying condition. That`s a fact.

I was at a conference once, where the CEO of the Lloyd`s of London insurance market said so..., and Lloyd`s would be the most qualified organisation on the planet to know that, given they have been managing risk since the 1700s.

It is just as we get older; we have less resistance to attacks on our body.

Sooo, I have cancer, part of my treatment plan is chemo which lowers my immune system. As things stand the cancer wont kill me, neither will the chemo. However if I contract covid there’s a good chance it might.

There us literally no balance in the MSM, they are behaving like project fear.
How many reports do we see of people dying within a short time if getting the vaccine?
Not many because they simply do not matter, they were expected.
And now there's a full on assault on those being cautious with the experimental vaccines, "refuseniks" the latest name being banded about.

I wonder how long before they threaten us with camps....I'll say....within 4 years.

Not aware of anyone using the term "refuseniks" but I suppose it depends on the sites you visit and the people you speak to.

The MSM can spin what they like. The data is available on the NHS Scotland open data platform and is regularly interpreted by the likes of the Travelling Tabby and Public Health research professionals.

I'd say some media go against what the data shows and portray a "we're doomed!" scenario. That's true of everything though. Simply don't read the Daily Mail, Telegraph, Sun etc.

That's good news. I heard Japan is experiencing its 4th wave - maybe coincidence but so far only 3% of its population have received their 1st dose of the vaccine.

There ye go jake89 .. Its the Daily Mail mind :-

Vaccine `refuseniks` today revealed why they were still shunning Covid jabs despite living in areas with high levels of the Indian variant, with their reasons ranging from government conspiracy theories to fears of needles and worries about blood clots.

Experts have warned that the virulence of the new strain means unvaccinated people will be particularly at risk, while Tory MPs are urging Boris Johnson not to delay unlocking on June 21 for the sake of people who have been offered a jab and refused.

Although it is technically correct to say that Japan is experiencing it`s fourth wave, I think it is stretching things a bit to call them waves.

The UK had (proportionally) more deaths in one week in January than Japan has had in total since the start of the pandemic.

Japan now has the double problem of low vaccination rates combined with very low levels of natural immunity.

Although it is technically correct to say that Japan is experiencing it`s fourth wave, I think it is stretching things a bit to call them waves.

The UK had (proportionally) more deaths in one week in January than Japan has had in total since the start of the pandemic.

Japan now has the double problem of low vaccination rates combined with very low levels of natural immunity.


It was a BBC news programme this morning which said Japan was experiencing its 4th wave. They also suggested the Olympic Games are in danger of being cancelled.

My view is that once the dust settles on this then companies that have made extraordinary profits directly off the back of the pandemic (looking at you big pharma...) should have a sizeable chunk of it clawed back and pumped straight back onto those people and parts of the economy that have suffered the most. Will that happen? Well... What do you think...

There’s now a ‘Yorkshire Variant’ on Sky News the day after the scientists say that the vaccines are unlikely to cover all variants.

Also out of the mass gatherings like the FA Cup and the Brits, 15 out of 60,000 had COVID.

There is currently a case at the High Court regarding the procurement of PPE, the figures being put about are astounding.

The Judge on the first day said there was no entitlement for the public (taxpayers) to know where and how the money was spent!🤔😡

The case continues next week, Good Law Project represents the public, but with a comment like that you know how the case is heading.

The ex Tory Councillor that "supplied " PPE and managed to buy a mansion plus 2 more houses must be quacking in his boots!

Of course BBC giving full coverage of the case!🤣🤣🤣

The first of 9 cases being challenged in Court.

I fully expect the court cases regarding the handing out of government contracts to be swept right under the carpet, everyone will have been bought and paid for.
I have seen quite a few stories recently, rioting in Wales, fire raising in Bothwell, and I wonder if now that the poor are really being squeezed if we will see a backlash from them against the rich. Some people didn't have much before this and now have nothing. Of course, it's most likely that will just be vandalism of the property of the middle and upper classes, rather than the super rich billionaires

I agree (even though I am one of them).

My problem is that everyone (government, scientists, and the general public) has an agenda. It is disingenuous to claim otherwise. Some care more about the economy, others about old people, others about the health services, others about themselves, etc. Everyone prioritises.

Following the science is a stupid expression and I don`t know who first came up with it. Science doesn`t lead you anywhere. It just provides answers to specific questions. If you ask a slightly different question you can get a very different answer.

I think all we can really hope for is that we can stack the cards in our favour with vaccines to the extent that we can all go about our daily lives not locked down, and we have an acceptable death rate, just like we accept a death rate from the likes of the flu. One thing is for certain is that this thing will mutate, but the more widespread it is in the population the more it will mutate, and the greater chance it will be problematic.

I think you can receive two different but it's by request if the individual is worried about AZ.

Pfizer is only available in one location in Dunfermline whereas AZ is in quite a few. No Moderna in Fife yet.

I had the Pfizer in Duloch and then in Templehall Community Centre in Kirkcaldy, Jake. I think they initially said they would give folk the same vaccine twice in case mixing them provided an adverse reaction. Do you know of anyone who's had two different ones? My wife got the AZ first time and was unwell for a week. She has an appt for her 2nd tomorrow evening and may well be interested in asking for an alternative. I can't see how two vaccines almost 3 months apart, could produce an adverse reaction.

From the very brief information I've seen about mixing vaccines, there is a trial ongoing just now.

Aside from promising initial results around efficacy, the only other thing I recall seeing is that people are reporting more uncomfortable symptoms following their 2nd dose. Heightened cold and flu type symptoms etc.

Cheers GG. I was told I'd be Pfizer due to age but Fife had run out last week. I'd expect AZ if the first dose was AZ but I'm sure you're allowed to ask for different, but it may involve a trip to a different centre.

Everyone is different, I had very little symptoms from my first AZ but know quite a number of people who had uncontrollable shivering.

All I'm saying is that in the trial, many more people are reporting heightened 2nd jag symptoms from mixing vaccines than people who got the same jag twice.

When I went for my 2nd jag ... first was Pfizer ... I asked Mick my jagger was it still Pfizer and he said yes we would not mix them ... the only case he knew off was from a patients GP who had AZ the first jag... but he had a history of blood clots so they requested Pfizer the 2nd jag ... I lied about his name it was Gordon :)

Yea, they're in Dunfermline. I should have read the link first, Jake. ☹

It clearly states over 30s should wait for their letter. I'm guessing they'll send letters or issue appts to those who "come forward" first, to avoid a lot of no shows.

My daughter and son in law are in their late 30s and haven't had a letter yet, so not sure how they're inviting much younger adults to apply.



Thats a bit strange as my brother and a lass he was at school with who are in same street as you had their 1st jabs 2 weeks ago tomorrow, both aged 39.

There were a few 39 year olds when I got mine in Dunfermline last week. That seemed to be the cut off. 38 and under are with the next letter dump by the sounds of it. 39 year olds were getting the Pfizer jag and 40 and over were getting the AZ jag.

Lisa Shaw, BBC Newcastle Presenter, 44yo, died after suffering severe headaches just a week after having the AstraZenica vaccine and then fell seriously ill having developed blood clots.

Had she not had the vaccine, odds are she’d be chilling with her family right now.

Taking the vaccine, a personal choice, let’s not criticise each other on the decision one takes as it is different for people at various stages of their life we should not be ashamed or bullied into taking the vaccine or opting out.

My parents think I’m selfish for not taking it but personally I couldn’t care less as I know for me it’s the right decision.

On that somber note...I’m now going to get stuck right back into the Grant manager thread!

Awful news about Lisa Shaw, and may very well have been the vaccine. But we shouldn't fixate on individual cases, we need to look at the bigger picture, the overall statistics and risks, which is still very much in favour of the vaccine. That said, it's still worrying, especially as someone in their 40's who had the vaccine last week and whose partner in their 40's had the vaccine this week...

Thing is, it is to be expected, currently around 1 person per million vaccinated. Or one in 100,000 of those in their 40's (eek). In the same way deaths from the virus are to be expected, albeit at far higher rates. And each death - whether by vaccine, virus, or indeed the affects of social isolation, is awful and catastrophic for family and friends.

Reminds me of an old work health and safety guy. Most people looked at "no incidents in X days" as being good. For him each day something NOT happening meant it was getting closer to something happening.

Sadly the same with vaccinations. It IS expected that a small number will have adverse reactions and an even smaller number may die. Putting this into context, more would die if not vaccinated. This is why they're saying not to use AZ on under 40s. The risk of clots is marginally more but they are less at risk of death from COVID so the benefit of vaccination is lower.

Rates of the virus killing people in their 40's with no underlying conditions is pretty damn low, although the telebox fear mongering would have you believe otherwise.

Approximately 1 in 10 had no underlying health conditions. I'd imagine the majority of these were in the higher age range as risk of death generally reduces with age. That doesn't mean a 15 year old in perfect health can't die from COVID, just that they're far less likely than a 90 year old with bronchitis.

Think there is a few states in America that have used this initiative as an incentive to get the jag. Seems to be working as well as uptake has trended quite significantly upwards in those states. Less people will die of covid, less people will suffer the effects of long covid, the state will save money and one lucky person will scoop a life changing sum of cash. Can`t see many downsides.

That's a fair point, though presumably the risk is still many times greater with the virus, even for fit and healthy individuals (maybe someone can chip in with the stats?). But there's more to it, as the vaccine significantly lessens the risk of passing the virus on. So by risking the vaccine you're helping to keep safer the folks that can't (or won't) take the vaccine, and lessening prevalence of the virus in society, lessening opportunity for mutations. And that leads to a society free of lockdowns, and all the negative effects of that.

They're trying to promote the vaccine simply on its benefits, of which there are many. Most people on this thread are too. But that cleary doesn't work for some people, does it?

BBC reporting that ministers are considering making vaccination compulsory for NHS and care home workers.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-57299470

While I understand the logic behind that thinking, I completely disagree with it. Taking away people`s personal choice is a slippery slope to go down and an infringement of civil rights in a democracy.

A few months back, the Italian Government had been threatening to suspend NHS staff who refused the vaccine, but I don`t think anything came of it.

Yes read that too agree with you GG Riva, I think they’ll eventually try and mandate on everyone as well in the long run if the take up isn’t as high as they want it.

It is fundamentally wrong removing ones rights. Particularly for the NHS, here is pennies of a pay increase and we’re also making it compulsory you take this new experimental vaccine that’s just come on the shelf.

Think there would be significant push back if they were to try and do that.

I don't think the data suggests having had the vaccine stops you spreading it. My understanding is you can still be a carrier.

Haven't the most vulnerable already been prioritised for immunisation?

Either way, there's always going to be risk of passing on infection when visiting a relative in hospital. That's why there's been hand sanitiser all around hospitals even before COVID. The issue then remains now - idiots who won't use it or go into hospitals when unwell themselves.

I suspect a bleak reality is dawning that we may already have lost this battle. It has always been said that the only way out of this is a vaccine,, and now that we have several effective vaccines, we have the means to beat it.

However, it is becoming clear that the initial support for the vaccine is waning and waning quite dramatically. In all likelihood, few, if any, countries will achieve the 75-80% uptake required to eradicate the virus eventually. And anyway, if their neighbours are slow on the uptake, then the global spread will just continue. Indefinitely.

Covid-19 will then move from being a pandemic to being endemic, a significant shift, as it will mean it is a permanent feature of our lives. The virus will spread amongst the unvaccinated, and as new variants arrive, as they already are doing, there is no guarantee that agewill be a defence and those of us who are vaccinated will be forced to take annual booster shots to maintain protection.

And here is the nub of this matter...

Big Pharma has significant skin in this game. The pharmaceutical giants stand to make phenomenal fortunes. They dont want Covid to go away; they want it to hang around and cash in big. Prices for the vaccines will explode and behind the scenes they are doing everything in their power to make sure that happens.

This article is by Umair Haque, a writer who I find to be essential reading these days. He draws out the realities of what is going on and frankly, it should make your eyes pop... especially if you are a skeptic.

https://eand.co/this-is-why-big-pharma-doesnt-want-covid-to-end-e3a44280015f

This is a race against the clock. Do we get vaccinated or do we let Big Pharma send us all into penury?

That's a good point, P. Are NHS and home care staff not tested regularly to ensure they're not carrying the virus, asymptomatically, whether they've been vaccinated or not? If not, they should be.

OzPar - I don`t think it is a question of winning or losing any battles. The virus is there, and it will always be there. There was never any question of eradicating it. In over two centuries of vaccines we have only eradicated one virus (smallpox) and that was a relatively easy target.

If you want to know what could happen in the future it might be a good idea to go back 130 years to the last time this (probably) happened. A pandemic killed at least a million people (equivalent to 5 million people in 2021), most of the people were older, and the symptoms were different from influenza.

It is looking more and more likely that this pandemic was due to another coronavirus (OC43). This virus is still with us today, although the original virus has been replaced by other variants that have been around since the 1950s. It is probably still responsible for deaths in older people, but at a relatively low rate since most adults will have some degree of protection from prior infection. If you (like me) have lost friends or members or your family to bronchopneumonia prior to 2020 it is very possible that a coronavirus was responsible.

The future of this virus (vaccines or no vaccines) will probably be the same. For Europe and the Americas it is just a matter of time. Vaccination and infections rates are both high enough to push the virus into the background. For many Asian countries, and Australia and New Zealand, it is a different story. Their clear success in suppressing the virus last year means that they now have a difficult choice to make. They can make vaccination compulsory, open their borders and `take the hit`, or keep heavy testing and quarantine processes in place for many months (or even years).

Your points are well made, aaaaaaaaaargh. The future of the virus may well already be determined. And behind the closed doors of those in power, there may be an acceptance that time and infection rates will dictate the outcome, and Covid-19 may eventually merge into the background as an accepted health risk in modern society.

But at what cost? Do we sit back and accept an annual bill in the trillions from the pharmaceutical giants?

You are correct in observing that there is a clear difference in where Europe and America are in respect to the virus, to where Asia for the most part and Australasia as a whole currently lie.

As we have discussed in the past, New Zealand, Australia and my state in particular, Victoria, managed to literally eradicate Covid-19 through the effective application of well-managed and well adhered to lockdown, tracking and tracing measures and strong border controls. It was a huge success achieved largely by a population that showed extraordinary discipline in challenging conditions.

But, was it the Dutch boy`s finger in the dike? Probably. For here we are sitting at home experiencing our fourth lockdown in 18 months as Victoria endures an outbreak of the Indian variant which came in through a neighbouring state.

The week-long lockdown is scheduled to end at midnight on Thursday, but there is every indication that it will be extended.

So what do we do? Do we accept a stop-start existence in perpetuity? Or do we stoically stand bolt upright, arms behind our back, and allow the enemy a free punch to the face? In other words, reopen our doors and face an uncontrolled onslaught of Covid?

You wouldn`t want to be us right now...

You are correct in observing that there is a clear difference in where Europe and America are in respect to the virus, to where Asia for the most part and Australasia as a whole currently lie.

As we have discussed in the past, New Zealand, Australia and my state in particular, Victoria, managed to literally eradicate Covid-19 through the effective application of well-managed and well adhered to lockdown, tracking and tracing measures and strong border controls. It was a huge success achieved largely by a population that showed extraordinary discipline in challenging conditions.

But, was it the Dutch boy`s finger in the dike? Probably. For here we are sitting at home experiencing our fourth lockdown in 18 months as Victoria endures an outbreak of the Indian variant which came in through a neighbouring state.

The week-long lockdown is scheduled to end at midnight on Thursday, but there is every indication that it will be extended.

So what do we do? Do we accept a stop-start existence in perpetuity? Or do we stoically stand bolt upright, arms behind our back, and allow the enemy a free punch to the face? In other words, reopen our doors and face an uncontrolled onslaught of Covid?

You wouldn`t want to be us right now...


I’ve been increasingly curious about how the countries that have best managed the virus will be able to reintegrate with the rest of the world. I was reading vaccine take up is very low in these countries - understandably so as there is less perceived threat to make it imperative. So the virus remains but how do countries open borders again without it taking hold as it would be tragic that having managed Covid effectively it just kicks the can down the road until it finds its way in. There must be a negative economic impact from keeping borders closed so must be their next big worry

"In all likelihood, few, if any, countries will achieve the 75-80% uptake required to eradicate the virus eventually."

Looks like the UK will be over 75%. Over 70% have had the first jag and we`re still on those in their 30s.

I'd imagine most developed nations will have high uptake.

The issues for most Brits wanting back to normality us that the countries they typically visit are doing poorly in terms of vaccine uptake.

They appear to have it under a bit better control. But there are still around 25k people being recorded as dying a day. Down from a high of 29k a day.

Last week the interesting point of view from the doctors was that there have no cases of regular flu in the last year and a half. What doctors are saying is that this is not normal and that when people do start to interact the flu vaccination program may have missed a generation of sequencing and we could have a flu outbreak. So we are in the 💩 either way 😩

I`m sure you meant anti-vaxxer idiots.

My mother was a bit of an idiot. She was offered an anti-morning sickness drug when she was pregnant with me but despite encouragement decided against it. I`m glad she was an idiot otherwise I might be typing this with more difficulty. The drug was called a different name then but later became known as Thalidomide.

Morning sickness drugs can`t be compared to vaccines obviously, as you suggested. I did receive in infancy the same vaccines as everyone else in the UK and am here as evidence of their effectiveness. We got some kind of booster when we started secondary school that left a big lump on our arm, and the girls got a measles vaccine (rubella?) thrown in for good measure. I am not an anti-vaxxer by any means. If I thought I needed it I would cut off my right arm, to speak like Mr. Kurtz.

Covid has been around in various forms since at least the 1950s, probably earlier. The Covid19 strain is obviously a lot more transmissible and potentially lethal to those who are vulnerable. Since I have never had `flu I can be selfish and say it won`t likely happen to me, even though my age statistically places me in the at risk category.

I understand I have a duty beyond myself and that obviously incudes my daughters and my grandchildren never mind the wider community. I visited the UK last week which required me to spend £400 on tests which told me what I knew before I took them: that I was not ill. The Moscow test charged around £40 for a swab of throat and nose. The UK ones cost around £100 for the same cotton bud in throat and nose; at least in Moscow we got two buds! I got the same for free at a Moscow airport when I returned since I assume they were nervous about the `Indian variant.` Earlier in my trip at Turnhouse I saw a woman refused her flight because her test was `only` an NHS one. Private tests are required which I will leave to Rastapari to denounce. So much for protecting the NHS: it means hiving off lucrative tests that must cost around pennies, the better to enrich pals of Johnson. The gangster class has moved into medicine, but they are wearing hospital gowns.

So no, I won`t be taking a covid vaccine I don`t need, same as it never crossed my mind to take a winter `flu vaccine. I have no idea how many elderly people died as a result of my sang froid attitude over the years but I doubt it is any more than those who will die as a result of my not being vaccinated against covid. Presumably about zero. If I feel ill I will stay away from humanity until taking a test to confirm the truth. Till then I will continue to speak to my children and hug my grandchildren. The term `asymptomatic` I will file alongside `potential terrorist threat` and `subversive.` Maybe `non complaint` is the latest term.

Mask wearing in Moscow is now around 50% in shops and the metro. A bit of a shock after leaving the UK. I have no idea how well or badly the Russian per head death toll is compared to the EU. My guess would be that it is much the same. Lockdowns and vaccination are part of the solution, no more.

To be fair, one of the big positives that will come out of this is a significant increase in hygiene standards, hand sanitisation wasn’t a regular occurrence but it now it’s part of your daily life really and now we’re all into the groove can see that continuing which is good news obviously.

Here is what Byram Bridle has to say about vaccinating children. Apparently he is a Canadian scientist and I have to say I think what he says makes sense.
He also believes that those adults not getting the vaccine are ill advised. The professor said;
"“If the risk associated with the treatment is less than the risk associated with the disease, of course you apply the treatment.”

Speaking to a mate down south this morning for first time in weeks. She’s 29 fit as a fiddle and her hobby is running marathons and tough mudder type obstacle events. She had been reticent about the vaccine too and felt under pressure to take it but came down to decide that she would.

Unfortunately while waiting it turns out she has caught long Covid and now struggles to breathe while walking and her fitness has totally faded away along with all of her training and work that she put in getting to that level of fitness.

Seems a couple star jumps and a Capri sun every day does not guarantee total immunity - who would have thunk it 🤷🏻‍♂️

This is a point I've been making - it is not black and white.

The vaccine doesn't guarantee survival from COVID. It INCREASES your chance of survival.

Being fit and healthy doesn't guarantee survival from COVID. It INCREASES your chance of survival.

Doing both will significantly increase your chances but that's not to say a healthy person who has been vaccinated won't still collapse and die from COVID.

The delta variant is just variant that was called the Indian variant. The WHO have decided to stop calling them after the regions where they first identified and rather by Greek letters.

To be fair, the Tories or whichever government have not just invented the concept of virus mutation. It is kinda what viruses do.

Every virus has variants. There's no single flu or cold virus. I've mentioned it before that your flu vaccine changes each year based on what health protection teams identify to be the strains of concern for that time.

The reason for changing the names is simply to make life easier and also to stop scape-goating areas. The place names used previously were simply where it was first discovered, not where it originated. They were also informal names as the formal names are sequential so easy to get confused.

Are you sure?

Yesterday after it appeared in the Daily Mail the World Health Organisation released a statement that there was not such a variety.

After Greg Shapps said Portugal was going to be moved from green list because of it, Public Health England stated there is no Variant of Concern originating in Nepal.

I think this is nothing more than the Tories being utterly clueless and believing a story from the Daily Mail.

Technically it is a new variant as I understand it. But the nuances are so miniscule it is something for the boffins.

Saw a stat earlier that out of the 80 odd folk who died during a recent test period after having tested positive for covid in the last 28 days, only 3 had had both their covid jabs. Good news on that side of the debate at least.

It's a variant of a variant is how I understand it.

Good news that the vaccine seems to offer good protection but very bad news.for the unvaccinated. Still low risk but not as low as previous variants.

What are the risks associated with the treatment though, that’s the problem no one really knows as there’s no understanding of the long term effects but I’m not going into all that again.

The Nepal variant I only took from Sky News as it’s one of the reasons why they changed the travel status of Portugal.

As far as I can see it’s too early to tell how significant this new variant is...or if its any different to any of the others and if it’s covered by the vaccine.

I’m truly bored of it all now though to be honest and the lockdown, fed up discussing and defending my position on the matter, not necessarily just on here but the judgement from others outside, it’s causing division which I don’t like whether intentional or not.

When we get back to normal, would fans here welcome me in a stadium if I’m unvaccinated? Would DAFC let me in? Would folk at work go on a night out with me if I’m not vaccinated? You already start to feel like you’re a walking disease and you don’t have it just because you haven’t been vaccinated and again I still think that’s the wrong reason for me to justify taking it, to alleviate those fears.

I’m not against taking it, I’m against jumping in and taking it, there’s reservations and I want them satisfied before i go for it, don’t think that’s unreasonable. Taking it so I can go abroad, to me is just wrong justification for it and that is the main reason why many of the people I know are taking it, not actually over the concern of the virus itself.

All these new variants coming out, does the vaccines cover it or not, we need to double check, we’re just approving the use of the vaccine to younger kids (not even starting on that) and yes AZ played a factor as well, for me, it’s all too early.

On that basis think my part in this thread has come to an end.

Thankfully the Euros is on shortly and the odds of me getting a season ticket this year has now significantly increased given it’s likely I’ll be able to go and some proper normality is welcome.

What I’ve truly learnt from this whole pandemic is much more of an appreciation over the concerns of people’s mental health and those that already battle these challenges pre-COVID, I’m more worried about my mental health than COVID, never had any issues or concerns ever before but even I over the last couple of weeks noticed slight changes in my mindset at times and it is rather scary, so can only imagine how difficult it is for those who have been facing those challenges prior to this and how they’re coping now.

This is never going to go away ... Also not convinced that the jag is going to help our future protection against all the variants ... Do what you think is right for you

I had my first and second vaccine at EEP. As you guys know I’m going through cancer treatment so my OH and daughter have already had their first vac too as unpaid carers.

Both have received a text today with 2nd vac details. My OH had his first at EEP but is now being asked to travel to Glenrothes. My daughter went to East Church but the 2nd is in Oakley. The appointment times are 20 mins apart making it all the more tricky.

Have any of you guys who chose to take the vac experienced this and was it easy to try to amend the appointment location/time? We’ve tried to do it online but it’s a pretty poor experience.

Fifers can rebook online as NHS Fife is on the electronic system. There's a link on your letter with a username. You go in and sign up and it'll take you into the system where it'll show your appointment and allow you to see where you can rebook to. All depends where there are spaces.

If you've not received your second dose letter yet you might see the appointment in there too as it'll appear there before the letter comes.

Reasoned post mate and I believe the choice of whether to take the vaccine or not is yours. You’ve taken an individually based risk and decided you’d rather not take the vaccine just now.

However, while you are afforded that choice, others (individuals and society) are also permitted to make choices.

I’m assuming you accept that in refusing the vaccination, you increase the likelihood of you catching/passing it on and keeping it prevalent in our wider society?

Given many who attend EEP or work beside you are either vulnerable themselves or have vulnerable people at home, you have to accept that they may not welcome you back with open arms unvaccinated - I suppose that would simply be them taking the same styled risk assessment as you have done?

I'd be interested in hearing the alternative route to normality without vaccination.

Assuming there is something wrong with the vaccine (there isn't) and we all decide not to get vaccinated, how do we then open up things like football stadiums? Do we just do it and accept the risks?

Should we do the same with all vaccinations? Accept the risk of HPV, meningitis, TB etc?

On the 6th June, 77 years ago, my father and his generation - many not yet out of their teens - were attacking the beaches and towns of Normandy to put an end to a tyranny that had engulfed Western Europe.

Unfortunately, many of those young men did not live to see the sunset that day.

In all this heightened excitement about the virus and the vaccines, it is worth drawing back a bit and putting things in some perspective; remembering that those who have come before us have had to face serious challenges too.

For what it`s worth, let`s see if Rasta is true to his principles in 12 months time when it finally dawns on him that effectively he has become a social pariah and what "freedoms" he has are severely restricted owing to his decision not to vaccinate.

Like it or not, that is where we are heading.

With regards to The NHS and potential enforced vaccines, could there be a case where an unvaccinated member of staff spreads the virus to patients and subsequently one of those patients, who was previously not infected, dies.
Is there claims potentially by the patients family against the NHS.
I am asking the question without knowing the legal situation and I understand there are many unknown situations in the text here, but is this a real potential problem for the NHS legally?

I can't imagine it is going to possible to determine with certainty who passed the virus on, what with a number of folk being asymptomatic and the vaccine being less than 100% effective.

When I picked mine up in hospital we were not allowed any visitors but they allowed a couple of folk to have one in. I certainly had my view who was most likely the cause but that was because of negligence rather than the individual actually giving it to me themselves.

Aye, I’ll be rushing to pop an experimental vaccine into my 13 & 11 year old daughters and 5 year old son then.

It shouldn’t be a case of ‘like it or not’ and will not be threatened into taking a vaccine by taking freedoms away which they should have no right to do.

Someone assure me there are no long term effects of the vaccine and I’ll go book myself in, until someone can do that or until the vaccine has cleared all trials and not just approved for emergency use, going nowhere near it.

0 deaths today in Scotland, it’s time Lockdown was lifted and everything returns to normal.

It`s because of the vaccines that deaths have been at zero. Eventually things will return to normal for everyone as those who aren`t inoculated will be under the umbrella of protection that the herd provides. Until then though some restrictions may have to remain. I think it is really only going to be cross border travel that will be linked to vaccination and even that won`t be forever.

There is no will to let us out of lockdown or have us return to normal, hence the "new normal" and "great reset" advertising campaigns....you think that's going to be forgotten about because cases are down?
There are many very wealthy and powerful people want their "great reset" and it won't be our wellbeing that stops them getting it.

Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, made a speech saying there will be no “getting back to normal” after COVID-19 and wrote a manifesto about ‘the Great Reset’.

Schwab envisioned the Great Reset as an opportunity to make the world better and more resilient, to capitalize on accelerating change to change focus on the greater good than pure profit.

His view was that “A company is more than an economic unit generating wealth. It fulfills human and societal aspirations as part of the broader social system. Performance must be measured not only on the return to shareholders, but also on how it achieves its environmental, social and good governance objectives,”.

However nutjobs and right wing conspiracy theorists (especially Americans who do not take well to anything other than pure capitalism) have taken this to mean the whole thing was planned to introduce population control, take over the global economy and will result in permanent lockdown and restrictions.

A lot of it stems from fear of government, fear of global governance/cooperation to address global problems and raised taxation that would be required to pay for it….all things that do not land well in America where the conspiracies originate.
Lands well with tories too.

Particularly appealing to the conspiracy theorist is that it’s a handy vague statement that they can latch onto and throw around with the implication of something sinister while never actually explaining what they really mean and offering no substance whatsoever.

What's odd is the rich are already getting richer. For a small few COVID will have accelerated their wealth growth but for far more rich people it will have negatively hit them.

The thing about conspiracy theories is that they are easy to believe as they're often providing simple explanations to incredibly complex topics.

On Sky News that catching COVID-19 provides at least 8 months immunity against reinfection.

Is the vaccine itself not between 6months and a year?

They should be pushing out antibody tests hard to help determine if anyone has likely to have had COVID, and if so, and if the findings are accurate, indicates that you may have similar immunity levels going without the vaccine on this basis.

Suggest that’s quite key information to determine whether you should proceed with what still is an experimental vaccine.

Since the NHS already advises people who have had covid to get the vaccine anyway I`d imagine they`d consider large scale anti body testing as a waste of resources.

Hang on a minute...isn't 8 months also between 6 months and a year? It's almost as if this vaccine is giving you the antibodies you need to protect yourself against COVID-19 but without the inconvenience of potential hospitalisation or death.

While I can indeed go out mostly when I want, where I want, go for a pint in the pub, eat out, I’ve tickets for 3 Scotland matches and a lions game but my freedumb is intrinsically linked to a full English beachfront breakfast in Benidorm and not wearing a mask because I am a whiny little millennial chimp (although i believe Rasta is bearing down on 50 and not as low risk as presented).

Being a bit harsh on Rastapari there. While he does have some funny idea and can be rather abrasive in the way he puts his point across, it is refreshing to hear a different viewpoint.
I feel a lot of the hostility towards him seems to be coming from people who are perhaps just unquestioning sheep, who do everything the government tell them without fully investigating things for themselves

It is good to hear different views and I've seen Berry put his points across about vaccine hesitancy very well.

On the other hand, Rastapari chucks out these supposed facts with nothing to back them up and when asked for links to what he's talking about either ignores the request or tells people to find it themselves.

Rasta, are you okay? You've gone from being reasonably rational to throwing insults around.

Just to be completely clear on this - no-one HAS to be vaccinated. Various people on this forum have chosen not to. That is up to them. In the case of children, the vaccine is being offered (not forced) to children who are at a higher risk due to their health.

The graph below is from the British Medical Journal. It shows death per head of population, adjusted for age, over the years in the UK. Last year the death rate was not even the highest of the 21st century. For most of my life the death rate in the UK has been higher than the 2020 figure, though I have no memory of hospitals being overloaded or morgues unable to cope.

If Lockdown policy was the reason for holding down the death rate in 2020 at a rather impressive level historically, then presumably the vaccination programme should be equally effective on its own. At the moment we have both Lockdown and a vaccination programme yet no end seems in sight.

Hi Sammer,

I've got no idea what the specific link between the virus, hospilation and death is but it would be the hospitalisation rate that was the key thing here to consider against impact on NHS, not the death rate.

Still quite a large increase in death rate considering we haven't left the house for much of the year. Wonder what it would have been without it.

I agree with your frustration about lock-out and the jabs. Hopefully we can get enough folks with full jabs and 3 weeks cover at the second jab....we must surely be close to that now.

It was though the highest in a decade, which makes sense. We're constantly making improvements in medicine so people quite frankly die less.
We have though had a pretty large jump in deaths this year, despite the fact that for the most part we were in lockdown, this may shock you sammer, but the intention of this was to stop people dying.

Hospital admissions don't relate fully to deaths, I wouldn't imagine in your life you've had a situation where there's been sudden and sharp rises in a specific type of hospitalisation either, such as what happened during the first, and second wave.

That also relates to morgues, simply put there's an capacity on them and in a situation where there's a mass influx of dead people over a short period of time that'll run out.


Now I know you're not a kid sammer, so it perplexes me as to why this needs explained to you. Do better.

The mortality rate for 2020 would strike most UK citizens as surprisingly low given the tone of government statements since last March, which have included claims that the UK is fighting its biggest battle since WW2. But putting the fear of death into people is a useful method for encouraging compliance.

I don’t think the mortality rate has ever been the real story here. After all there were voices in the Johnson cabinet, in the early days, advising him to ‘let Covid rip.’ That sits well with their social Darwinist mindset and is worth remembering the next time they tell us ‘one death is one too many.’

Rather, the government nightmare has been of the NHS being overwhelmed, of stories and pictures of people unable to receive treatment. That would be viewed as gross negligence and would amount to a breach of contract between citizen and state, hence the panic decision to erect ‘Nightingale Hospitals’ which I’m not sure were ever used. The government slogan ‘Save Lives, Save the NHS’ has from the outset been as much about saving its own skin.

You know fine well or are you so cowed you didn't realise?
We're not coming our of lockdown "laws" or emergency status until 2023, the end of the vaccine trialling, if course us plebs aren't getting anything back, you lot can snide away all you like, I said last year this would be the case and was ridiculed.
You're the shower that can't recognise the carrot and stick being used to cajole you along.
All we're going to hear is variant variant variant, heavy travel restrictions (unless you're wealthy) and much of our leisure activities gone.

You lot will continue to make excuses for them.
Pathetic.

So what's your solution? Riots? Civil unrest? Pitchforks and burning torches. You suggest nothing other than abusing the rest of the human race.

Freedom to go on holiday abroad, to go to gigs, to go clubbing, to go shopping without a bloody mask etc.

Positive to see gradual lifting though I don't think it'll make much difference to me until things are fully lifted. The only thing I'm missing is a holiday abroad.

I'm interested in the suggestion of vaccinating children. My understanding is they are incredibly low risk so the suggestion is to only vaccinate those with underlying health conditions, if their parents consent to them receiving it. Have I missed a recommendation to give all children the vaccine?

I think the MHRA has given the green light for the Pfizer vaccine to be used for all 12-15yr olds but the JCVI hasn't updated it's strategy to include them all at this stage.

They would just advise it's safe for use rather than that it is to be rolled out. My understanding is it would be aimed at children with health conditions where not being vaccinated would pose a risk to their health.

Got my first injection of the AZ vaccine today.

Was very easy and straightforward, to be honest. There was a definite tingling feeling as the vaccine went into my bloodstream, and I was glad to follow the recommendation to sit down for 15 minutes afterwards. Briefly, I experienced a slight dizziness.

That was seven hours ago now, and apart from a general feeling of lethargy and a slight nausea, it has been okay so far.

The nurses told me these feelings might last for a couple of days.

What has been your experience with the vaccine?

Was the same for me on the first injection as you. But second injection was no bother. No after effects at all. So all good.
Well, except for some guy following me, recording my phone calls watching my movements. 😂

On another note I dropped my daughter off for her injection at the weekend and I was really pleased to see so many young people going for their injections. I asked her why this may be and she said people generally want to live life again and the young people want to do their bit.

Everything you post is not readily available on at least 3 occasions I have scoured the Internet looking for info on a claim you have made to find nothing.

I`ve had my first vaccine and will get the 2nd one. However, I understand if you`re in your 20s why you might be reticent to do so.

Having known someone who has died of Covid, someone younger than me that was touch and go and an extended family member that runs the main Covid ward in a major UK city, I am broadly in support of what the government has done re lockdown. It could have been an absolute catastrophe otherwise. Elderly and infirm people would have been dying in the corridors of hospitals, with little or no access to treatment. Things could obviously been done better though and people have obviously died that absolutely should still be with us.

I don`t vote Tory. Never have and never will. I have no doubt many friends of this government have benefitted financially from all of this. However, I don`t see how that translates into the government not wanting to end restrictions.

When restrictions end, there will be even more money and business for them to throw in the directions of undeserving friends of the government - and that`s absolutely what will happen. I`m under no illusion that those in charge at Westminster care about anyone but themselves and their own and the sooner they are out (or we are out) the better.

I am therefore confused. I am no idea if I am a mug or have my eyes wide open. One thing I do know is that we need to be better than hurling insults about when there are a load of us that know people who have died of this virus. It shows a total lack of compassion.

If lockdown hadn’t happened, our hospitals would have been over run with covid patients meaning those that needed out health service in a normal world would not have benefited. At some point in our lives we’ll all need help from our health service. If that’s not during a pandemic then you are incredibly lucky.
I’ve had to go through major surgery, post treatment and various appointments, scans and check ups over the last few months alone.
If that helped save lives and take the pressure off the NHS I’d do it again in a heart beat.

The NHS Louisa Jordan (SECC) was definitely used. I think what people didn't appreciate was that many of these "hospitals" were set up to free up space in the proper hospitals rather than to be used for COVID. There was also concern about flu (as there is every year) but it was fortunately very minor due to everyone being at home!

So correct me if I’m wrong Berry, but what your saying is you want all the benefits of society, going to fitba and sitting next to other people but you are not willing to take any risks or precautions that society deems important to enable that.
If it’s your choice not to take the vaccine (which you’re free to do so) then it’s everyone else’s choice to say they don’t want to sit next to someone who has refused the vaccine and therefore is more likely to pass it on

Yes, pretty much. I was thinking how best to respond to this but it’s as straightforward as you put it. Am I really to be penalised because I’m reserved about taking what is an expiremental vaccine that they very much are still studying and checking it covers each variant that comes out as well as any long term effects. They’ve only just approved it for use of kids, that’s nice of them.

Should I not be able to go food shopping, take the boy to the park and go watch my local team and support them?

I shouldn’t have to feel like I’m a walking disease but this is seriously a stage it’s going to take us to if we’re not already there.

What about kids that are too young to get the vaccine, I’d argue a lot of parents who have taken the decision to have one will decide not to vaccinate kids, are they going to suffer, would you pull them from school and hang them out to dry, keep them away from EEP?

What about those people that are medically advised not to take the vaccine due to underlying conditions, are we going to banish them from EEP as well?

Where does it stop and how does one have a right to make that call?

They call it ‘Freedom Day’ when the irony is they took our supposed freedom away in the first place which indicates that we never really had freedoms in the first place.

The vaccine has proven its worth, absolutely, and it’s been a key factor in reducing hospital admissions, those that really need the vaccine have had it and have that degree of protection, fantastic, it really is.

It doesn’t stop transmission, it doesn’t stop you catching it, it will no doubt lower the odds and make the symptoms less severe and less likely for a hospital admission. There was a cruise not long ago (I can look it up if you want) and all had to be vaccinated as a condition...two of them caught Covid whilst on board. There’s no escaping this unfortunately.

For me and my family after a detailed chat we agreed we’d put more trust in our immune system and when the vaccine is fully authorised we’d re-examine. I’m might even revisit earlier if there is much more confidence provided, mentioned a few times the Valneva one is a vaccine I’m reviewing.

As bad as this sounds, I hope it’s taken as intended but I don’t live for other people, other than my family and kids. When those are in need I’m more than happy to help but taking a vaccine where there is still uncertainty is a step too far.

I’m happy to wear a face mask, happy to take a COVID test pre every game, put me in an unvaccinated section of the stand I wouldn’t be bothered.
If they decide I’m not wanted then I’d be gutted but it is what it is, I’d respect it.

Like Berry I'm not willing to risk severe health issues for anyone other than my family, take that any way you want.
There's not a lot known about what is down the road with these experiments and that's a fact, no matter what the glossy ads tell you.
Good luck.
Fact is I told you last year this would be where we're at and that's how it's gonna be, if you think those leaders doing their freaky rituals on the beach are all meeting up to discuss our betterment you are the crazy ones.

Except covid does carry a risk of severe health issues. Not guaranteed, probably unlikely, but it still carries a risk. And we don`t know what long term health effects of covid are.
As always though when in doubt; If the risk associated with the treatment is less than the risk associated with the disease, of course you apply the treatment.

The risk is still there, again like Berry I choose to trust my relatively good health and immune system over corporations that have repeat customers in mind...because you will be repeat customers.
If I had seen any will by those in charge to let us get back to normal I would reconsider but all we are going to get is carrots on sticks, you'll see in time.

Yes I am worried about waiting 4 weeks in fear of getting blood clots, then there's the heart issues now seeping into the mainstream media....and given a childhood friend, same age, vaccinated, fit as a butchers dog dropped dead this week of a massive heart attack, out of nowhere....I reserve my right to caution....if things go a certain way the vaccine will be made readily available to me...if there is issues with the experimental treatments....we'll, you can put the vaccine in at any point...once in though l, you can't get it out.

Animosity won't change my mind.

Listen to yourself!
Prepared to take risks, a properly developed vaccine won't come with the risks or so many possibly related deaths...so no....to be clear I rate my health...to me...more important than yours, yeah?
Play the virtue thing all you like, I am happy in the knowledge of what isn't in my body, if it was going to eattle you this much perhaps you should have waited instead of trying to mob handedly bully people into an experiment, maybe in 2023 when the trials are over you'll feel a bit more settled and not need to attack those exercising their own will over their bodies.
Bitter little man.....and while you're at it....list what I owe you over the safety of my family?

Sorry for your loss but you can't categorically blame the vaccine.
42 million Brits have had at least one vaccine dose & the amount of serious side effects are miniscule compared to the effects of deaths/infections from Covid


I'm not blaming it but I am aware that heart issues are now being reported as a thing, the CDC are reviewing it closely....and it's not like heart issues in supposedly healthy young men hasn't been in the news recently.
Like I said...I know what issues I won't face and I'm good with that.

Again… People are free to take or not take the vaccine depending on what they perceive to be the greater health risk

All I’m saying is that those same people have to accept when I (our society as a whole) chooses to do the same and decide they don’t want to sit next to people who have taken no precautions and thereby increase the risk to those vulnerable in their own family (our friends or work colleagues or society in general)

Insult me all you like, Rasta, but so much of what you post on here is just incoherent nonsense. How is it possible to just protect he health of your family and not bother about anyone else`s in modern society? You`d have to isolate yourselves on a remote island somewhere. Isn`t that a form of lockdown?

You`re now telling us you don`t want to be near anyone who`s had the vaccine! How does that work? When you visit a shop or go on public transport do you ask everyone if they`ve been vaccinated? What do you do if someone says `yes`?

You`ve never explained why the vast majority of political leaders have decided to trash their economies just to control the population. To what end?

So what's nonsense?

Vaccines are in testing phase...they are...until 2023, you're an experiment, not my problem you can't accept it.
There are blood clots linked to the vaccination....confirmed.
CDC looking into heart related issues....true.
The vaccinations will not win your rights back...ongoing...not looking likely.
So yeah why don't you and your smart erchie look past your beak and have a look at other countries, actual data, not from Hilary Jones instead of coming on here trying to be smart.

Prepared to take risks, a properly developed vaccine won't come with the risks ?


I take it you wouldn't take an iburopfen then? Or if you had a female companion wanting to take the pill you'd warm them off?

I take it you never step out the house with the risks that are associated with it?

Bizarelly I've seen you post about smoking the green stuff before, no risks involved with that, no?

Because Ibuprofen is linked to quite serious issues, as is the contraceptive pill. Both are popped on a daily basis with no thought at all despite being a higher risk of complications than the AZ vaccine.

For those in the AZ age range, you do realise you can request another vaccine if you're concerned?

Can someone please explain how exactly the Pfizer and az vaccines are 'experimental'?

I recall reading the phase 3 trials were completed and had been significantly sped up by funding for analysis and the number of people willing to be part of the studies but I'm lost as to how it can still be deemed 'experimental'.

I generally write it off as a pretty lazy statement by those not wanting to be vaccinated (further compounded by the numbers now vaccinated) but interested to see a clear definition.

They're not "experimental". They're in "test" until 2023. The vaccine is well tested and approved for emergency use. Believe it or not, governments don't just approve things willy-nilly.

You realise all vaccines are monitored? You also realise these vaccines are monitored more than any vaccine ever has been? Worth having a read of the Public Health Scotland vaccine surveillance strategy.

Bless look at you all now talking about the test phases...I was savaged for piping up you were being tested on, rubbished.

They are only allowed to distribute the vaccine under emergency conditions, so they have to keep the emergency going, so 2023 before any normality and even then it requires a will from the clowns in charge to relinquish control.

And surprise surprise, young people, the latest vaccine targets are being blamed for the covid "epidemic" .

Whether you like it or not, all drugs are tested on humans. It's just been found today that there's a link to a well used blood pressure pill and cancer. There's a risk associated with everything you put into your body. The question is the level of risk of not having something Vs having something. So in this case you may die from cancer, but if you don't have the pill you may have a heart attack.

Exactly the same with COVID. If you have the jab you may die from a blood clot, if you don't have the jab you may die from COVID. All about balancing the risks and no-one is a coward or a sheep for taking either route.

Key thing should be ensuring factual information is shared rather than throwing insults around.

I think it's worth repeating that the decision as to whether an individual should be vaccinated or not must remain his/her personal choice. That is paramount. If it's an informed choice, all the better.

I chose to be vaccinated but it's never entered my head to try and send the likes of Berry and Rasta on a guilt trip because they have reservations about these relatively new vaccines, for which we cannot know about any long term effects they may cause.

I would add the rider that I have far less sympathy for any smoker who refuses these vaccines on health grounds, even if it is still a personal choice.

Missed a lot of this as been enjoy a terrific time at the Euros, pubs and meals out and I am now on the train to Wembley which is absolutely bouncing.

God I long for freedom.

A quick scan through shows a bit of a Rasta abuse (which sounds like a magic night on the weed) but a point does resonate

“Should I not be able to go food shopping, take the boy to the park and go watch my local team and support them? “

No evidence to support that ever happening

So tomorrow I’m going to the game you can show you have been vaccinated or just show you have taken a lateral flow test. Question; yes object to vaccine, does anyone object to making sure they are ok? (When it’s free)

My tickets for the lions at Murrayfield “recommended to take a test” no demand.

My lad had a cough at nursery last week so was sent home until tested. Seems proportionate to me albeit massively inconvenient.

So where exactly have we lost our freedom?

Little bit surprised at the complete lack of any distancing or mask usage in the venue I was in for the game tonight. Took me back to begin with after a year of avoiding people! It was mostly younger folks to be fair, who are mostly bullet proof. It took me back to the old days. Not surprised at the surge in cases, probably more so after tonight, but as long as hospital admissions / ICU / deaths numbers continue to flatline then we're getting out of this mess for sure.
