COVID 19 - Second Wave

Recommended Posts

Still no occupational prioritisation for the vaccine; the rest of the rollout will just continue to cascade down age groups.

 

Teachers are back in schools in just over a month and only those 55 and over are likely to have been offered the vaccine by that point.

i got my vaccine first dose yesterday evening and the lass checking me in said there had been close to 150 from my street alone in there over the course of the day, young and old so it seems to have a ring of 'postcode' about the selection process.

 

Another point is that half the staff were doing nothing, I am not sure if it was because folk had not turned up but it did seem strange considering just last week they could not cope with the numbers waiting in line.

Was that a GP-run clinic or a mass vaccination clinic ?

I went to one of the latter, and it did seem to me that the helpers greatly outnumbered the patients.  I know that our GP clinic (which I didn't go to) had more volunteers than they knew what to do with.

It was a mass clinic, I would rather have gone to the GP run clinic but I was restricted by my postcode.

 

At the GP clinic you go in one door and exit from another, at the Hall, there is line markings on the floor and keep left signs everywhere BUT there is a flight of stairs to go up and down and it is less than 2m wide and sod's law states that is where you are going to meet people, I know I did.

My GP clinic (i.e. the one of which the practice I am registered with is a part) is a PCN of nine practices.  It doesn't work on postcodes.

If you're registered with any of those 9 practices, you will (eventually) get an invitation to make an appointment.  Regardless of your postcode.

Since they finished the first 4 groups, they have not been getting much vaccine though.  It's going to take them weeks to get through Group 6 at this rate, so going to a mass vaccination clinic was a no-brainer for me.   Both are at large well-known sporting venues ;) so plenty of space, and neither is particularly close to where I live, so none of that made any difference to my decision.

Get Nicola on the Bat phone and tell her to hurry the fuck up.

Yes.

It's been fascinating watching the Salmond v Wee Jimmy war.

I have no time for Alex but, christ, he has much to say and they are doing everything possible to stop him from doing it.

Not really all that bothered.  I'll just sit and wait for my letter.  

As for Nicola V Alex, I'm not too bothered about them. They've shit in their own political nests, they can sleep in them.  

People like me don't really care or give a shit about them not being too interested in politics.  The only times I put anything political on Facebook is to wind someone up. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Or she could take a leaf out of the Westminster Government's playbook and be filmed hacking Alex Salmond's head off on the steps of Holyrood and still not think it is a resigning matter.

The next demographic being offered the vaccine are ‘cunts’.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is very much rising to the occasion.
