  1. I have a lot of time and respect for the bloke, but I really do wish he'd stop talking about things that he's not qualified so to do. If he does insist, he at least needs to qualify it with 'it is my understanding, but would need to be confirmed by a clinician..' The pseudo doctor trait has become more apparent recently.
  2. Correct. And actually entered in good order!
  3. You will authorise it to link to the immunisations section of your NHS record. From the IATA Travel Pass FAQs: 'You as a traveler you always remain in control of your data privacy. The IATA Travel Pass does not store any data centrally. It simply links entities that need verification with the test or vaccination data when travelers permit. No verification will go to an airline or a government without your authorization'.
  4. There are some clever people working to make it easy - and on your NHS App, you can choose what you want to share. I think they are looking to use this: https://www.iata.org/en/youandiata/travelers/iata-travel-pass-for-travelers/
  5. I do know there is more information 'buried' in your medical records than is visible using the app.
  6. Your vaccination status will appear in your medical history which you can show using the NHS app or any of the third party apps which link to it. I believe the UK are going to make this the system that is used to generate the required proof. That's why it's important the fact that you've been vaccinated is entered into your health records without delay.
  7. That's the exact point - just as your Visa or ESTA is checked before you are allowed to travel to the USA, your vaccination or testing status will be checked by the airline before a boarding pass is issued if they are a condition of entry to enter a particular country. Greece and Spain are making such demands for British tourists I believe. If the airline bring an inadmissible person to a country, they are responsible for their repatriation. That can be costly and inconvenient, so the airlines will be strictly complying with and entry conditions.
  8. All the major cruise lines (P&O, Royal, Celebrity, Princess) that are doing the UK cruises this summer - with the exception of MSC.
  9. Thanks. Me & the Mrs were jabbed a couple of weeks ago and there is nothing on the NHS app or patient access (which gets it's feed from the NHS info anyway I believe), hence the question. We are with Hailwood surgery. Some companies are stipulating you must show you are two weeks post second jab before they will let you travel with them. The fact that it's taking this long to appear in our records has the potential to cause problems. Edited to say that if you've been vaccinated by the NHS, it will of course be with only an approved vaccine. The travel companies are using the phra
  10. Does anybody know how how long it is taking to have the fact that you've been vaccinated entered into your medical records? Also, is it the staff at the vaccination centre who do it, or someone else?
  11. Would you prefer 'with the passing of time'?
  12. I think that it won't be as simplistic as that. I would have thought that if we start from zero cases on a certain date, that efforts will still be made to control the spread of the virus by testing, contact tracing and isolating. I think that there would be no immediate introduction of societal restrictions at the outset of an outbreak. I would have thought that a very keen eye will be kept on how any outbreak progresses, and how it manifests itself in terms of hospitalisations. Provided the hospital is coping, restrictions will remain light if any at all. If the data suggests
  13. If its during the transition phase, I would expect contact tracing and isolation to happen as before, but, depending on the severity of the outbreak, no or only minimal restrictions for the rest of us.
  14. Perhaps they are looking to start the transition with a clean sheet? If cases crop up they will know they are fresh imports. That would be useful head start for contact tracing which is going to be with us for some time yet. The further down the line we get with greater community protection through vaccines, the less important it will be to track trace and isolate.
  15. A bit perspective about the risk of blood clots. On the IOM the annual murder rate has averaged about 2 per 100,00 people over last ten years. The apparent risk of dying from a blood clot after the AZ jab is 2 per 500,000 people. You are therefore 5 times more likely to be murdered on the IOM in any one year than you are to die from an AZ jab. I think I'll take my chances!
  16. It made the national press too. https://mol.im/a/9432747
  17. Whilst it's not possible to use the NHS Covid App without inputting a UK postcode area, you can sign up for the NHS App itself. I've just done it, it took about five minutes and you need to prove your ID by scanning a passport or driving licence. Anyway, it's all set up and I can see my health records on there now, which is where the link to the covid vaccination status will appear. It's very similar to the Patient Access app layout and function.
  18. This whole thing smacks of a toxic power culture that should have been put to bed years ago. It has to change.
  19. To point you in the right direction...Lettergate starts @93:40 onwards @95:20 RG says 'IF somebody did write a letter...'
  20. It may well be that they want some measures to continue in place as we start the transition phase...time will tell.
  21. For me, the main takeaway from today's briefing was a change in tone regarding a complete cessation of restrictions imposed with this lockdown. HQ has gone from saying the 'circuit break' will end once there have been 21 days without community cases, he is now saying the relaxation will be 'broadened' no earlier than 21 days after the last community case (29th March plus 21 days = 19th April). He even mentioned that social distancing and masks could be a requirement in some circumstances after that time. Dr E then spent a while explaining how other things that need to be considered before
  22. Good Stuff this Fifezer, including against the SA variant apparently. Thursday, April 01, 2021 - 06:45am Analysis of 927 confirmed symptomatic cases of COVID-19 demonstrates BNT162b2 is highly effective with 91.3% vaccine efficacy observed against COVID-19, measured seven days through up to six months after the second dose Vaccine was 100% effective in preventing severe disease as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and 95.3% effective in preventing severe disease as defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
