  1. Why dont people just get a signed letter given to them at the time of the vaccination? Surely its easier than any other method retrospectively ? Not everyone will have online aceess to Patient Access and requests to GP's to provide confirmation will only cause delay as soon as everyone want to begin travelling (probably all at the same time)
  2. 60m Novavax on the way... EDIT to add: If approved, the vaccine would start to be rolled out in the second half of 2021. The UK has already ordered 60 million doses, which are going to be manufactured in Stockton-on-Tees.
  3. Imagine a grassed area with matting with a bunch of pensioners on it / turning into a mud bath...great idea in Feb, March, April
  4. Scotland to start publishing 'expected supply of vaccine' data from next week - despite UK government ordering it not to These figure were published - and then swiftly deleted - a few weeks ago but Ms Sturgeon says they have separately been released through "spin" to the media (presumably she means by the UK government). "I have told my officials, regardless of what they (UK government) say, we'll go back to publishing the supply figures from next week." Her own MSPs applaud when she says this. Why should we care? Well, the figures tell us when everyone in the UK might expe
  5. if you have an appointment, why queue outside ?
  6. In some places, planning have caused the problem by approving estates with insufficient parking spaces (example - no driveway or driveways only for one car when people have two) I'm not saying that it's right to park on pavements - but the government have partly created the problem The pavements are bad enough for pushing prams due to being in a poor state of repair without having to deal with parked vehicles
  7. 2nd day running where i can applaud the openess and transparency. Big thanks and well done to those involved. Very positive
  8. this must be the singularly most transparent thing they have ever done well done to those involved https://covid19.gov.im/general-information/covid-19-vaccination-statistics/
  9. He is repeating the next review date as stated by Ashford
  10. I wonder if Tesco will issue a permanent ban for people who don't wear the masks they deem compliant with stores policy ?

  12. 20 in 100,000 were the stated numbers
  13. Not sure why religion is being mentioned here, but just to demonstrate that there's arseholes in all faiths and cultures 150 at a Roman Catholic Church funeral https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-55772495
  14. To be fair, I can understand why they would use the airport. Toilets, parking, first aid room, cafe, air con, heating, etc all already on site. Not to mention, almost no passengers But you just know this 'conversion' wasn't done on the cheap (which it should be due to being temporary)
  15. The Ramsey Vaccination Hub will be in the new Ramsey Marina. The newly developed mixed use hotel, residential and office will temporarily be used as a vaccination hub for the North of the island. Opening in 4 weeks time. Cost £100m Access will be via the new electric tram. Also opening in 4 weeks time. Cost £900m
  16. depends how much ale they've drank that's past the use by date
  17. How will IOM people prove they've been vaccinated?
  18. https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-analysis-shows-one-vaccine-dose-leaves-uks-over-60s-seriously-vulnerable-12192949 Quote: Two doses look spectacularly effective. That's been shown in the clinical trials. But the evidence that the second dose can be delayed for three months looks shaky. Not even the manufacturers recommend it.
  19. Ashford said a week ago in a press briefing that there was no need to change from the 12 week interval becuse the island was in a very different situation to the UK Clearly there are concerns from Israel. Quote: Answering questions from Sky News viewers, Sir Patrick was asked about an analysis from Israel, where the Pfizer jab has been rolled out the fastest. That study suggested the effectiveness of the vaccine after a single dose was as low as 33% - rather than the 89% that had initially been thought. The 89% figure - pointing to high short-term prot
  20. Hopefully the IOM sticks to the manufacturer recommended follow up timescale for the 2nd doses https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/19/single-covid-vaccine-dose-in-israel-less-effective-than-we-hoped?__twitter_impression=true
