I smoked something that was sold to me instead. Much healthier, less unknowns about impact on my body etc.

I don't think I know anyone who has turned down the offer. However, that's their business. I don't go around asking who's had it and who hasn't 😂

A bit confrontational, me thinks. Kozma trying to start dotnet's own civil war? 🤔

As EEP says, it's down to everyone's personal choice and none of anybody else's business. The more you try and coerce folk, the more they're likely to become entrenched.....

It`s plenty other people`s business.

It`s their business if they have a condition that means that they can`t be vaccinated so the folk who refuse to have it without medical reason are a danger to them.

It`s the business of folk who don`t want to catch the mutated strains that are allowed to develop because the virus is still spreading among folk who refuse to be vaccinated without medical reason.

It is the business of folk who are the parents of children who are too young to be vaccinated and who don`t want them to get sick because the virus is spreading amongst folk who refuse to be vaccinated without good reason.

Vaccination is more than a personal choice - vaccines create herd immunity that protects those who can`t be vaccinated and they stop the spread, and therefore mutation opportunities, of disease.

Andrew Wakefield deserves to rot in prison for the lies he`s told, and the lives he`s knowingly destroyed, in an effort to enrich himself.

I've not had it, I may get it at some stage, still weighing up the options. I've been working from home, and have been barely being going out to socialise, visit pubs and restaurants etc. When I have been out I've been very careful with masks, social distancing and sanitising. Yesterday was the first time I have been in close contact with many people at a funeral, and I do admit it was a slight worry hugging people again. Just passed the Dell Farquharson Centre and the queue is round the block so it is obviously rife round here.
The main reasons I have not taken the jab are because I am suspicious of the whole narrative behind the virus and how some governments around the world allowed it to spread so freely. The levels of ineptitude especially by the UK Government were unbelievable, it almost seemed they wanted it to spread. I am also concerned about putting a vaccine into my body which is really just at trial stage, I would much rather wait and see what the long term effect on the test subjects is. It also doesn't make you 100% safe and it appears the is only effective for between 6 to 12 months anyway, so for the time being I haven't accepted the offer

The topic was not meant to be confrontational, just a simple question. You can get the jabs but still carry it and pass it on.

I myself haven`t had it. 2 reasons, I don`t like needles and I don`t fancy the idea of nasty side effects. I know that not everybody gets side effects but I know that I would.

Beliefs are entrenched now so nobody is going to be persuaded either way but I`ll keep quoting `if the risks of the treatment are less than that of the disease of course you apply the treatment`.
Only problem with that is I was paraphrasing Professor Byram Bridle whose anti covid vaccine ramblings have been debunked.

I don't disagree with any of your post, Wotsit. I meant that it's nobody else's business in the sense that those who prefer not to be vaccinated shouldn't have to justify their stance to others. It would be far better if they could be persuaded by a compelling argument than being backed into a corner....

I have had my two jags.It is a free protection against,basically,dying.

I have been quite lucky as I have never even had flu but my wife has had umpteen serious things which she has always got through so I`d rather cut my chances of getting something to infect her so she gets yet another visit to ICU.

Horrible virus but I`d rather get through it with my wife so we can enjoy our retirement,and the few years left,as we planned.

Apologies, Kozma. I completely misinterpreted your OP. I thought you were having a wee pop at folk who have decided against being vaccinated so far.

With respect, I`d suggest not liking needles is a pretty feeble reason for refusing the vaccine. I wonder if anyone does. I just looked away when I got them and hardly felt a thing. We may or may not get side effects. They might even turn out to be quite serious, but thankfully, probably quite rare.

Smoking tobacco can produce some very serious side effects and little or nothing in the way of health benefits. It doesn`t stop approx 1 in 5 of the population from doing it. Just saying...

A friend who is a similar age to me and much, much fitter has had her life completely ruined by long covid for the foreseeable. Over a year now and no improvements whatsoever. Absolutely no doubt in my mind at all to take the vaccine. Chance of meaningful side effects are tiny and I'd much rather put something in my body that was designed by people who have dedicated their collective lives to science than listen to any politician (or basically anyone else with their own biased views) in the world. Don't mean that to sound confrontational at all, it's just the way I feel.

Don't judge anyone for choosing not to but like someone else in the thread said, we'd be a bit scunnered if everyone took that route.

Compelling arguments and reasons are all that is ever offered to those who are vaccine hesitant. These are arguments backed up by scientific data and facts. Now I`m not a medical scientist (not any kind of scientist) so I do not have the knowledge to analyse the raw data and decipher all results and tests. For that I have to place my trust in the doctors.

It is technically an individual choice to not punch random strangers in the street, however we understand that sometimes social safety is more important than individual freedom.

Although the risk to others from refusing to get vaccinated is probably much higher than it is from refusing to not punch people.

Apparently, 450,000 people aged 16-50 have not taken up the offer of vaccination, so I would argue that they have not been convinced so far, so the evidence offered so far has not been compelling enough.....

I think it's highly likely that the 20% of smokers are addicted, even if they don't like to admit it. I wonder if there's much if any overlap with the 20% who haven't been vaccinated? I very much doubt it. Surely if you're concerned about the potential dangers of a vaccine, you'd be absolutely terrified of the proven dangers of smoking?

I've not had it.

I take warfarin and each time I was scheduled for the jab my INR was not on target. My INR for anyone who doesn't know is basically a blood thickness reading. Each time it has been too thick so to speak. As that is now 4 apps I've been unable to get it due to this I wasn't given anymore apps, instead ive been told when my blood is fine I've to go to a drop in as soon as possible after my app with the warfarin clinic. My concern is if I have to get the 2nd jab within a certain time frame I can't guarantee my blood will be at target.

I do plan any getting but my main reason is I think I'll need it to do certain things and especially for my planned trip abroad next summer.

I`ve tried to stop smoking every patch and tablet known to man, I even paid a ridiculous amount of money a few years back for hypnotherapy but as soon as I was out the charlatans door I was craving the demon known as nicotine. If only I could travel back in time to tell myself not to be a pr1c£.

I`ve tried various vapes but have found them harsher on my throat than any roll up/ciggies.

As for catching Covid anybody who knows me from the mental health forum will understand why I don`t care about catching it. A bit heavy to be discussing on this thread though.


Surprised to hear you found vaping harder on your throat than smoking.
I smoked for about 25 years before becoming tired of coughing my lungs up every morning on the way to work so decided to switch to vaping after many years of trying and failing to stop smoking.
I found the transition easy and definitely not as harsh on my throat.
And now I can walk without coughing and wheezing when I couldn't walk the length of myself before without doing so.
The benefits health wise to me have been great.
Of course.... Who's to say vaping is any better for you than smoking... But i certainly feel better for switching.
I'm now on 0.6 nicotine which is very low so my next step is to come off the vape completely. Fingers crossed.
If anything... At least I've saved a fortune since coming off the fags.
A pack of 20 were about £9 when I stopped and I was probably on about 30 a day. So roughly £13.50 a day to feed my habit.
Now I spend £15 a month on vape juice and £3.50 for a coil (after the initial investment of £45 for my vape thingy of course ).
I do t think I could afford to smoke ciggies now... I hear a pack of 20 is around £10 these days. That's about £450 a month at 30 a day by my reckoning.
Scary min.
£450 vs £18.50... No contest 🤣

I’m pro-choice on the matter of vaccination and respect both sides. As some on here will know, as an unvaccinated man I was diagnosed with Covid just over a month ago. I remain unvaccinated since I now have a QR code that tells me I am ‘safe’ for the next six months. In future, to access public life, I presumably have the option of being vaccinated or have to do my damnest to catch Covid again. It seems like the world is closing in a bit.

Did I actually have Covid? I’m not sure. These days any bad illness is automatically labelled Covid so I don’t think the cotton bud thrust down my tonsils was ever really tested much in a laboratory. I had a throat infection obviously and felt unwell for a week but was labelled ‘Covid.’ I felt bad and stayed indoors out of respect for others, but would never have asked for play parks or schools or public spaces or EEP to be closed in my name. Nor would I demand that young people be vaccinated to spare me from what was just a week feeling bad. Maybe I was lucky.

How did I catch Covid? Again, I am not sure. My Russian lady Natasha, like me, has hardly ever been to a doctor in her life, but she was required to be vaccinated as she works in a call centre. She was not happy about this but complied, then two weeks later she was out on her feet and taken to hospital. I was ill but not so bad and interestingly, the Russian doctor asked me if I smoked. I said yes and he told me that had probably protected the virus getting deeper into my lungs, as it had clearly done with Natasha who has never smoked in her life. She was on a ventilator in hospital while I was smoking my 20 a day on shaky legs on the apartment balcony. She is convinced the vaccination triggered the Covid reaction which laid her low and was passed on to me. We don’t know, but neither do the doctors.

After four days in hospital Natasha was back and energetic as ever, although she says her sense of smell is like being pregnant again. (No jokes please.) She can now smell very acutely whereas my sense of smell and taste are around 40% of what they were. Everyone is different so we should remember that.
I am not anti-vaccination and may well decide that vaccination is the best route. I’ve had the usual jags that we all have in Scotland plus a few in China when I worked there which I think were to combat Hepatitis. I can’t remember, I just stuck my arm out and that was that.

But if you look back at the posts one year ago there were many on this site claiming they would get their two jabs and get life back to normal again. Well, we are not back to normal and I don’t think that can be laid at the door of the unvaccinated like myself. Science cannot deliver mathematical certainty, especially in terms of forecasting. And politicians love a crisis. I would say that Berry, Rastapari and myself have conceded less ground in terms of the lockdown/vaccination argument over the last 18 months than most. But no doubt we could be wrong n

Not being vaccinated is more like smoking whilst pregnant or in a car with children than it is just smoking normally.

Not being vaccinated makes you a danger to others. A danger to society actually, given the extra capacity for virus mutation that you are facilitating.

I think recent research is casting doubt on the extent to which the vaccine reduces transmission, at least as far as the delta variant is concerned. That said, I would still advocate vaccination as it could save your life, keep you out of hospital (and thereby keeping it free for other stuff), and reduce the chances of long covid. This is significant as, let's face it, every one of us will get this virus at some point.

This is my signature

I don’t believe being vaccinated does reduce transmission not at a significant level anyway, it was a line peddled to encourage folk to take it.

Will see what happens at the OF matches over 10k where you have to be vaccinated and see what comes of it.

Reduces the potential seriousness catching Covid, probably for some but that’s then their choice isn’t it. I choose to just put trust in my immune system that’s never let me down so far. Those that are double vaxxed, nothing to worry about then, leave us be.

As for your sons view, reasonable to me, catching and surviving covid legitimately is more beneficial than having it popped through a needle surely, but I’d never try sway his decision regardless and certainly not look down on him for it like many would.

Also to add the 12-15 year olds, ministers are circling as expected, potentially putting the JCVI recommendation to one side and yes, start hunting down our kids, shocked one is not. It’ll just start softer with ‘written parents permission’ I’m sure.

Wouldn’t put it past a mandatory vaccine before they can get their hands on their school dinner or get on the bus if they aren’t hitting their quota.

It's not being offered to non-vulnerable 12-15s. If it was, it would still be up to the parent or carer to consent to their child receiving it. Yet to see evidence of "hunting" 🤦‍♂️

According to RT the Israelis claimed that catching Covid was 12 times more effective in preventing a recurrence than a vaccination. This is from a country which has vaccinated more than most. So I don’t know where jake89 gets his information from. Jake89 has been a very strong proponent of mass vaccination so I think it is fair to ask if he has a vested interest in this activity.

We were promised that vaccination would liberate society. It has failed to do this. The Johnny Two Jabs Brigade have gone very quiet of late, maybe they will find their voice after the third (or booster) jag, or it may take the 6 month booster in perpetuity before they find their voice again. Vaccination did not slay the monster as was promised a year ago. We are required to come back again and again, at great profit to the pharmaceutical companies who have found riches beyond their dreams. The politicians and experts will fall in behind the money and scream perpetual vaccination for all.

As for selfishness, I am just an amateur. I paid into the NHS all my life and never needed it, but I had no complaint. I understood it was for those in need and I was lucky. Money well invested I thought, for the greater good. But now I am being told that my contract with the NHS was not absolute but conditional: that they could only treat me when things were quiet. That was never said when they took my taxes all my working life. I understood the NHS was there to protect me: now I am told it is my duty to protect the NHS! What a turnaround. And Labour politicians are joining in the chorus. What nonsense. It’s like being told not to draw money from your bank because there is a run on the pound. It`s my duty to protect the bank!

Covid vaccinations have been a failure in how they were presented to the public; they have not achieved the breakthrough as was seen with polio for example, So anyone who remains sceptical is totally justified in doing so.

BTW there was no measles jab when I was a boy so I caught measles and then chickenpox when I was seven. Half my school did the same and nobody died. And no one ever suggested we needed a vaccination thereafter. Big pharma wasn’t quite so big back then.

Some more details about the RT report Sammer alludes to but with added context. In summary initial research seems to show greater protection is given to those who have been infected than those who have had the vaccine. However even longer and stronger protection is possessed by those who have been infected and then vaccinated afterwards.
So if you you`ve recovered form having covid it appears getting a shot of the AZ, Pfizer, Sputnik vaccine or indeed any of the other big pharm inoculations is the best way to go.

I`d be interested to know where folk are finding the evidence that the vaccine doesn`t help to prevent spread, when the current advice on the US CDC website says:

COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from COVID-19, especially severe illness and death. COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of people spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did before the pandemic. Learn more about what you can do when you have been fully vaccinated.

Whilst this article in nature suggests that the vaccine reduces chance of infection (fewer infections = reduced transmission) by 81% and direct transmission by 78%. That`s a significant reduction in mutation opportunities which helps to keep other people`s vaccines effective.

The fact that the Delta variant may (it`s not clear yet) be less protected against is only helping with proving the point that we have to get the spread and mutation opportunities under control, because mutated strains might well render the vaccine less effective.

By the way Sammer, measles killed over 200,000 people last year. That`s a lot of people. However, here`s a graph of annual measles deaths, I`m sure that you will agree that it`s easy to spot when the vaccine was discovered?

Genuine question but do some folk genuinely not get it or do they just wilfully ignore that the vaccine has led to;
- fewer hospitalisations
- fewer deaths
- the return of football/pubs/socialisation

To suggest that there has been no progression in the return of liberty since the vaccine is disingenuous at best.

Where do you guys think we would be without the vaccine as it’s very easy to assume we would still all be locked down - and we are not now.

I don’t really care all that much that people still get Covid when the hope was the disease would be crushed, I care that the most devastating impacts of the disease have been massively reduced.

It is a simple fact that people who are not fully vaccinated are getting seriously ill and dying at much higher rates than the vaccinated population. Why anyone argues the toss against that information is beyond me.

Wotsit, that was the article I was referring to. To be clear, the jury is out only on the delta variant, not the variants before that. But regardless of transmission reduction, vaccines are what have given our current freedom. Thank goodness it's 80% of folks prepared to give them a go and not 20%,, or we'd be in a perpetual lockdown cycle to prevent our hospitals being overwhelmed. I'm not quite sure what Sammer means when he says the vaccine has failed to liberate society when it is abundantly clear that it has done just that.

Am I right in thinking that no vaccine for infants and young children is compulsory in the UK? In Italy almost all of them are.

My nephew's toddler almost died from rotavirus, a common virus among infants which causes vomiting and diarrhoea. The little boy became badly dehydrated and had to be put on a drip as he was too weak to drink by himself. I asked the kid's dad why he hadn't had him vaccinated and he told me it's the only one which isn't compulsory.

As I understand it the vaccines haven't been approved by the JCVI for kids between 12 and 15 where they don't have underlying health conditions.

However, that was only announced last week and there may be a politically based overruling of that this week by the government.

Some doctors have raised some concerns that the JCVI analysis was badly inaccurate.

Most other countries appear to be pushing for 12 to 15 year olds to be vaccinated. But this might be because they want to push for herd immunity rather than for their own immediate protection.

As I understand it at least anyway.....

The JCVI is just advisory. Their logic is there's far less benefit given the low risk posed to 12-15 year olds.

The vaccine is already approved for 12-15s and my view is it should be up to the individual if they are to get it. The original plan in Scotland was to vaccinate (assuming consent) at the same time as the flu jab, which is being offered free to teenagers for the first time. Sounds like that'll be out the window.

Only advisory yes, but you would expect them to get it right given they are the experts.

One of their input assumptions did sound like it was very dodgy (that two in every million would be admitted to hospital; in the last 6 months, over 260 had been admitted).

I suspect that their advice may change or they will get ignored next week.

The JCVI`s 2-in-a-million was for children without underlying conditions in intensive care due to Covid.

Although myocarditis doesn`t always require hospitalisation, it isn`t a particularly nice thing to subject kids to without a clear health benefit.

I couldn`t find anything relating to pfizer in profits related to myocarditis treatments. Now I`d assume Pfizer, as a public traded company will release earning reports and that may even be broken down into profits and losses related to drug types but I`d be surprised if they have released data that on that which covers the past six months.
What makes me think though that you have been taken in by a dodgy story Rasta is there is no one single treatment for myocarditis that I can find. Rather any medicinal treatment involved blood pressure and blood thinning medication being taken.

"Meanwhile in Australia the police are booting people up and down the street… that country has gone mental with lockdowns."



Picture this. Your government has adopted a strict lockdown policy. To a very large extent, the population has complied with the rules and it has worked brilliantly. There have been just over 1,000 deaths from Covid since it arrived in the country early last year. How many in the UK?

After beating two waves of the virus off and opening our shops, pubs and restaurants up again, the Delta variant entered Australia from India a few months ago and, like a lot of countries, we have been experiencing a large surge of cases.

We were slow off the mark with vaccinations, but plentiful supplies have arrived and we are now close to 70% with the expectation that 80% will be reached by November. So we have a firm target to aim for, for that will signal a return to a relatively high degree of normality.

Here in Victoria, where the state government has been strictest, we are in our sixth lockdown in 18 months. In total, we have spent about 230 days in lockdown, an utterly demoralising experience, but we recognise its necessity now that the finishing line is so close.

Against this backdrop, in recent weeks there has been growing noise from a very small sector of the population who are protesting the lockdowns and vaccinations.

This weeks bovver has come about because the government has got tough on construction sites where there have been large outbreaks of Covid, largely down to slack management of mask usage rules, distancing, etc. Several sites were ordered to close down.

The construction workers union went to the streets this week to protest this action. They have been joined by a number of anarchists and, as you can see, violence has erupted on the streets of Melbourne. The police have responded appropriately.

Let me make it very clear, the vast majority of Victorians support the police in their action. There is a deep - DEEP - resentment in the population towards the anti- maskers and anti-vaccers. They are seen as actively delaying our escape from lockdown.

I was in the queue at the supermarket yesterday and all the talk was about what was going on in the city centre. Suffice to say, every single person who expressed a view (maybe a dozen) supported the police force`s tough action.

As a footnote: Just to rub salt in our wounds, all Victorians experienced a right good shaking at 9.15 this morning with an earthquake 5.9 in the Richter scale. Someone doesn`t like us...

So a sparky I know on site hasn’t had any jabs and his son caught covid… so now he has to self isolate(although tested negative) because he is non vaccinated…. but his wife who has the 2 jabs and tested negative can carry on as normal?
That makes no sense whatsoever… 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

Post Edited (Wed 22 Sep 19:47)


Are you referring to lateral flow or PCR when talking about negative tests?

My understanding is they are spinning that the lateral flow tests are not reliable now (ironic considering we’ve relied on them pretty heavily before) and therefore whilst both tested negative ‘safer’ to let the double jabbed out and for the non jabbed to isolate. I struggle with it to be honest, just another attempt of coercion if you ask me.

I was called out by saying they’ll start hunting down our kids for vaccinations. Maybe it’s the term I used but I don’t think I’ve been wrong.

Kids between 12-15 were to have parents consent, that’s what they said then they changed their mind and said if the kid disagrees and is sane enough to make that call then the parent is over-ruled, good precedent in life to set that, also a good way to try force up the number.

You have Whitty announcing that it is a near certainty every kid will catch COVID, factual…or scaremongering?

Kids are least likely to suffer any significant issues if they catch Covid so it’s now being positioned as you’d lose more days of education without taking the vaccine, might be acceptable for parents that to be honest than taking an unproven vaccine. It’s likely there are a lot of kids that will have already had COVID and built some natural immunity so is it worth it…not for me.

I also said god forbid they try go younger than the 12-15, well low and behold Pfizer have come out saying the vaccine is safe for 5-11 year olds.

Vaccine Passports in England, can we now just agree that it was one big hoax to up the number of vaccinations, it was as expected, an attempt at coercion, threatening something that they had no plans to do. They must have hit their quota for now, but still keeping in back pocket to threaten again…carrot and stick was it Rasta said?

Left Nicola in a bit of a pickle who was being shielded by Boris, be interesting to see if she follows through.

This isn’t just about ‘anti-vaxxers’, or necessarily being about ‘anti covid vaccine’. It’s the whole way the Governments are handling this, in my view there are holes in their whole approach and quite frankly I have no confidence nor trust in them.

"What finishing line? The double vaccination was heralded as the finishing line but failed to deliver. It was fools` gold. You`ve been imprisoned on a promise that never materialised nor ever will. - sammer"



We shall see, sammer. By finishing line, clearly I mean the end of lockdown, not the end of Covid-19. And I see nothing to suggest that this will not be possible once the 80% threshold has been achieved. I have had the two vaccinations and in my district, the compliance level is already past 80%.

Presumaby, natural attrition will see to the remaining 20%.

So, what will this mean? No more lockdowns. All shops, pubs, restaurants and gyms are open. I will be able to return to my pre-breakfast laps at my local public swimming pool. And my stepdaughter and I will be able to fly to Thailand to reunite with my partner and stepdaughter number two, who we haven`t seen in the flesh since we flew out of Bangkok airport on January 28 last year.

There are thousands and thousands of families who have forcibly been separated through Covid. For each and every one of them it has been a very stressful time.

Sammer may call all this a "fools gold". I would more comfortably associate "fools gold" with those who have spent the past 18 months conjouring up ways to actively prevent those fighting the virus.

Whether it was Trump with his ego-driven objection to masks, the evil swine screaming abuse at nurses and doctors coming through hospital gates, or the conspiracy crazies who claimed that we were all lab rats in the great experiment of some shady organisation with dark plans for the world.

Central to all this of course was evil Big Pharma.

"We must stop the vaccinations!!! Big Pharma must not win..." the crazies shouted and screamed.

Yep. Great plan that was...

Vital time was lost and before we knew it, Covid-19 was no longer an epidemic... it was endemic, a permanent fixture. Whether we like it or not, we are going to have to learn to live with it for the rest of our lives.

In the end, Big Pharma has won, thanks in no small measure to the Rastas of this world.

So, were we lab rats? Or were the army of little mouthpieces like Rasta who were sent hither and thither through social media armed with fresh snippets of misinformation every week, the real lab rats, the control group?

Make no mistake, this was organised. Rasta was no Nostradamus. Most of us here will be on other message boards. In my case, my interests range from politics through to growing plants in my greenhouse and every one has a message board that I regularly visit.

With almost clockwork regularity, my favourite message boards had Rasta, and Linda, and Postman Pete and Golden Sage all parroting the latest conspiracies, almost word for word.

So forgive me if I don`t share some folks` enthusiasm for his return to dotnet.

Whether it was Trump with his ego-driven objection to masks, the evil swine screaming abuse at nurses and doctors coming through hospital gates, or the conspiracy crazies who claimed that we were all lab rats in the great experiment of some shady organisation with dark plans for the world.

Central to all this of course was evil Big Pharma.

"We must stop the vaccinations!!! Big Pharma must not win..." the crazies shouted and screamed.

Yep. Great plan that was...

Vital time was lost and before we knew it, Covid-19 was no longer an epidemic... it was endemic, a permanent fixture. Whether we like it or not, we are going to have to learn to live with it for the rest of our lives.

In the end, Big Pharma has won, thanks in no small measure to the Rastas of this world.

So, were we lab rats? Or were the army of little mouthpieces like Rasta who were sent hither and thither through social media armed with fresh snippets of misinformation every week, the real lab rats, the control group?

Make no mistake, this was organised. Rasta was no Nostradamus. Most of us here will be on other message boards. In my case, my interests range from politics through to growing plants in my greenhouse and every one has a message board that I regularly visit.

With almost clockwork regularity, my favourite message boards had Rasta, and Linda, and Postman Pete and Golden Sage all parroting the latest conspiracies, almost word for word.

So forgive me if I don`t share some folks` enthusiasm for his return to dotnet.


I'm not a member of any message boards so don't use my name in conjun

No, what I am saying is that, like many others, you have been manipulated.

Who by? I have no idea. Those nice Qanon folk perhaps, Steve Bannon and his cronies on Facebook or Reddit sites. It doesn`t really matter. But if you were to dig far enough, you would probably discover that Big Pharma was lurking in there somewhere.

Now wouldn`t that be ironic?

Ozpar.....I have watched through my own eyes and I'm doing so now...
I am not seeing ANY unvaccinated friends get ill, not one.....and yet in the vaccinated....well...not going so well.
I guess my buddy didn't drop dead of a massive heart attack just after the second jab, I guess it's ok though because you lot subscribe to "it's to be expected".....not to his wife and kids it wasn't.
I guess my friends daughter's (21) periods didn't immediately mess up and she hasn't been diagnosed with early menopause.
I guess all my double jabbed friends coming down with covid are just dodgy tests....just a cold right?

Rasta, That's a good point mate, I wasn't. So yeah fair do's with that. But why would the scientists, be wanting to do you harm?

Onto your point above, about not having any unvaccinated friends get ill with it, I have two mates at work who were both admitted to ICU. One of them had refused to take the vaccine, due to him being mixed race and after reading sh1te on the Internet that people of mix race would die if they got vaccinated. This was in May and he was ill as F and he's still off work. Really struggling to breathe and his quality of life is awful now. Really feel for him. He's since had the jag, but too little too late.

My other mate has recovered better, but he showed me pics of his scan and the damage to his lungs is incredible.

That's a personal experience though, Rasta.

I can tell you of an unvaccinated pal who had a recent hospital stay and was incredibly unwell. I can compare this with a double vaccinated colleague who had it rough but only required a check-up for a concern he had about his breathing, which turned out to be caused by anxiety of having COVID!

That's just my experience and won't be true to many people.

The only thing to review is the data.

I must say from my perspective as well, all unvaccinated people I know have been absolutely fine, those vaccinated, my parents and aunts for example, catching it and feeling awful.

What I’m finding is folk I know that are vaccinated are more worried about COVID than they were unvaccinated which I was surprised with, you’d think having had the jab they’d feel safer but not getting a sense of that.

Personal experience though, not speaking on behalf of the masses.

You do understand that the vaccination is for Covid? It’s not a vaccine for heart attacks or act to prevent the menopause. You seem to imply that people should expect to never be ill ever again once vaccinated or if they are then that that illness whatever it may be is definitely and entirely the fault of the vaccine.

Are you also suggesting your unvaccinated friends are now immune from illness?

I really hope you didn’t spout any of your the vaccine done it p!sh to the bereaved family

Is this not the problem though, examples above of massive heart attacks and bringing on early menopause you’re implying that the vaccination didn’t cause it because it’s administered to prevent Covid.

Yet you could have a heart attack tomorrow and if you happen to have Covid you’re logged as a Covid death, implying Covid caused the heart attack or twisting it that it was the final nail which is equally not true.

What Rasta is saying is a fact though, if punters are being advised to bring evidence of exemption then punters are within their rights to report it as they are legally not allowed to challenge you.

It is a massive loophole for the unvaccinated to be fair, do what you want and then if questioned play the exempt card.

I actually just looked on Amazon and if you search for exemption lanyard there’s loads, they should’ve been distributed only from doctors/NHS and any other appropriate association and anyone else should be hammered for selling them.

Edit to add its equally a big loophole for the vaccinated that don’t want to wear face masks.

Post Edited (Thu 23 Sep 18:33)


I think we agree to an extent - in both examples the heart attack is not due to vaccine and death by heart attack is not by Covid.

However my understanding is that death certificates have multiple conditions contained within whether cause of death or not so it would still be death by heart attack and in that example Covid would not be recorded as the cause of death - the final sentence below backs that up;

World Health Organisation guidelines state that “COVID-19 should be recorded on the medical certificate of cause of death for ALL decedents where the disease, or is assumed to have caused, or contributed to death, i.e. COVID-19 is the underlying cause of death”. Such an example would be someone who has developed pneumonia as a result of COVID-19, dies from acute respiratory distress. Alternatively, COVID-19 may be present on the death certificate as a significant condition contributing to death but not the underlying cause. These guidelines are clear that in such cases these deaths “are not deaths due to COVID-19 and should not be certified as such”:

From the Scottish government website regarding exemptions from the vaccine passport scheme.
https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-mandatory-vaccine-certification/
I`ll quote the relevant passage;

"Medical exemptions.
We are developing an exemptions approval process for medical exemptions. This will be finalised and published ahead of implementation.

It is estimated that fewer than 1 in 1,000 people (0.1%) of the population cannot be vaccinated for medical reason (distinct from those exempt due to age or participation in a clinical trial). Reasons may include medical contraindications such as severe allergic reaction to vaccine and those receiving end of life care.

Work is ongoing with vaccination experts, clinicians, Public Health Scotland, GP representative bodies, Data privacy and NHS Boards to finalise the process that will enable those who need an exemption to receive it as quickly as possible while minimising the additional workload for already stretched NHS services including GPs, and in a way that is compatible with the human rights of those who may be entitled to exemption."

Working out if you are menopausal takes months and months and months, believe me. You have to not have had a period for at least 12 months before they even consider you are peri-menopausal.

None of my female friends have suggested any missed periods following their vaccine. Not one.
So to even suggest that covid vaccine has caused this cannot be accurate, sorry.

Again though, completely opposite here, in the family too, like I said, you live life through your experience of it, leave me to do the same.
On the influence of the vaccine, the family and their doctor are looking into it.
As for months and months and months....a tad dramatic when a blood test can highlight the markers of menopause at an early stage.

Well, I know the family personally, I know what they pursuing and to an extent their doctor's views.

There's no mocking of anyone going through the menopause but it's correct that it takes a long time to conclude. Also, it would be difficult to necessarily link it to the vaccine as you'd need to evidence it was a result of the vaccine and not something that would have happened anyway. That's not me suggesting it isn't linked, just that it is presumably hard to draw that conclusion with great certainty.

That`s purely down to how you interpret posts, though, Rasta.


As for the subject of menopause - not overly dramatic at all re blood tests to confirm the early signs. It took my specialist (plus GP) at Ninewells 7 years for my diagnosis with countless blood tests in that time, never mind the invasive and often very painful procedures of investigation. Having finally discovered why babies were never going to be on the agenda - from the age of 27 - I wished it HAD only taken an instant to be diagnosed with early menopause, at that time.



I truly hope your friend gets the help she needs, after a devastating diagnosis.

Quite impressive a load of men discussing the menopause but my wife has been getting investigated for a very long time on this now and as hormones fluctuate it takes an awful lot for the blood test to be conclusive. I. Her case it has indeed been months and months and months and still continues without conclusion.


🤣🤣totally! I’m having a hot flash just reading the comments 🤣

I suppose I’m lucky I know I’m peri menopausal due to the drugs I take, all the symptoms are there.

I hope your wife is coping as well as she can do with it all P (and you too)

She does really well and I try to educate myself but I imagine if she thought some idiot with a phd in stuff they believe from YouTube said it was because she took a covid vaccine she would get a little bit agitated


Have you read the thread or just having a pop?

So I've had a lot of "do your civic duty" thrown at me....I look at the petrol hoarding behaviour and think yeah, I really should do my upmost for those stupid creatures, really should.
The greater good eh...

Some would argue you are delivering a civic duty by not receiving the vaccine as you provide a comparable test case. However, I'd never suggest receiving or not receiving has anything to do with civic duty.

The petrol shortages is just hilarious. We don't seem as bad as down south but you've got to question what these people are doing. Where are they putting all these cans of petrol? Genuinely surprised we've not had a story of someone blowing themselves up by putting a few cans in the boot and then lighting a fag on the way home.

That would make sense as the government experts are telling us there is and will not be any fuel shortages.

The number of people I see in shops and supermarkets without masks on is a concern

I'm amazed at how many adults with respiratory problems meaning they can't wear a mask have managed to give birth to children who also have the same conditions.

Well out here in sunny Tenerife things are basically back to normal, in fact it's getting busier by the day, masks only to be worn indoors, some do some don't!

Sad seeing some of the businesses that didn't survive but those that did are chocablock!

Here, in my part of Oz, I have just returned from a very busy supermarket. The number of people not wearing a mask? Zero. The likelihood of someone being pulled up if they were not wearing one? 100%.

In Victoria, people must wear face masks everywhere except in their homes. This includes indoor places and outdoor areas unless they have a medical exemption. And need I say it? The number of medical exemptions is tiny.

Here`s the advice that is being given from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners to GPs with respect to medical exemptions...

===

While most patients are now open to wearing masks following the latest Government announcements, some patients find them ‘suffocating’ and difficult to wear for long periods of time.
 
Some GPs report that patients have requested medical exemptions from wearing a mask. Are there any scenarios in which this may be appropriate?

GPs should not advise against wearing masks, as we must consider the vulnerable groups at high risk of catching COVID.
 
But it’s also important that we reassure patients asking for an exemption that it is vital now for everyone in the community to be dynamic and make short-term sacrifices for long-term community health gain.
 
Medico-legally, if the patient catches COVID and we’ve given them an exemption, we may be at risk of providing incorrect advice against health authority guidelines. However, we must also understand the patient and try to explore what works for them.
 
There may be other reasons why a patient might feel they can’t wear a mask, but whatever it might be, it’s important that GPs try to work with the patient to modify the protective clothing or mask for their benefit and the community as a whole.
 
Of course, we empathise with the members of our community who may experience anxiety and/or claustrophobia from wearing a mask.
 
However, it’s also imperative to consider the anxiety experienced by people in our community when we see people who aren’t wearing a mask. It’s a very stressful time for frontline healthcare providers and immunocompromised people particularly.
 
We need an attitude shift towards mask-wearing. Wearing a mask should not be connotative of ‘fear’ and ‘COVID-19 conspiracy’, but a symbol of compassion and union to keep our communities protected and healthy.

My 13yo step-daughter received her vaccine appointment today that is being offered to her.

I had naively thought it would be addressed to the parent. Anyway the vaccine wouldn’t be taking place at the doctors, or at the school (I had assumed it would be the school but are they distancing from it now?) but at…the DW Sports unit at the Kingsgate……ffs.

I have a he leaflet in front of me. 11 pages. Of those 11 pages, the only part selling the benefits is a line that reads "The COVID-19 vaccination will reduce the change of young people catching the COVID-19 disease."

It's also clear that young people should discuss the leaflet with a parent or carer.

Tell a lie - there are three bullet points on a second leaflet for older young people which highlight:

Reduce risk of getting ill
Reduce rates of serious illness
A random statement about spreading COVID.

It then goes onto info on who should NOT receive it and side effects.

Berry, with it being the Pfizer vaccine that is being offered, which I think still has to be stored a sub zero temperatures then it probably isn`t practical to have those sort of facilities at every high school.
I don`t think high schools mind being associated with vaccines. My boy got his flu vaccine yesterday and will be getting several other vaccines for TB, etc, as his schooling progresses.
I did notice on the slip he brought home that one of the options that could have been ticked of he didn`t get the flu inoculation was `Parent consented but pupil refused`. With that in mind I suppose it makes sense to address the covid vaccine leaflets to the teenager rather than the parent.

I think his message suggests that he does. Unless he purchased a boy on the local slave market.

And at a very reasonable price. He`s great for doing all the odd jobs that I just can`t be bothered doing which reminds me I`ll have to get him to clamber up onto the roof to clear out the gutters before the autumn leaves clog then up.
