I got my invitation letter last Friday and responded online, had a call at 6 this evening and booked in Wednesday afternoon. 

And this morning I noticed that the second dose is 10 weeks later.

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

They are good round here. I do find it odd that the query process seems to be a Facebook group they’ve set up. 

It’s a voluntary and unofficial  page. Hermes even made them change the name. The couriers try and help but they seem to be the object of people’s ire, messages all day and night and a total lack of support from management plus ultra crap systems.

It's a good idea - when I am looking for parcels from them, they can be 'Due for delivery today'...but their system says they are sat in Bolton. From experience, that usually means the parcel will be here today or tomorrow.

My guess is that they are going by someone last scanning a container before it heads to Heysham and not scanning it here.

They shifted AZ interval, to 10 weeks, 3 weeks ago, pfizer last week.

The paperwork says “up to 10 weeks” but they’re rigid in a “computer it says no way”. There is no discretion. 111 bookers can’t over ride. The computer sets the dates.

No doubt, in around 5 to 10 days,  we will be finding out just how many plonkers visited mother on Mothering Sunday.

My daughter and gs stopped by in the car to drop off my card.They live a stone's throw away from me, but came in the car to make sure my gs stayed socially distanced. He's a very affectionate, huggy little boy so it was the prudent thing to do. 

They stayed in the car with the windows open while I stood 2M away, aside from when she handed me the card. I wore a mask.

Whole visit only lasted five minutes, but it was the highlight of my week.

Mother's day I guess.

The post office seemed in disarray too. I got messages that two packages sent from the UK on Wednesday - 48 hour delivery - were in Douglas at 8:40 on Friday. Delivered here 10 o'clock Monday.

I think they’re quarantining some mail - seriously, I suspect they’re leaving it sat there for 48 hours incase early delivery spreads corona. They might start doing that at the other end now.

As far as forbidden socialising goes I suspect that's the least of the problem.

As the couriers keep saying, the “local depot” is Bolton. Recent boat disruptions can’t have helped with deliveries.

I knew something was wrong. My Viz only got delivered yesterday but it was in the newsagents on Thursday. That'll be the CWU at their best!

I think you're right. I got it just before Xmas, they were busy.

But even now I've got Special Delivery items that are supposedly guaranteed next day that are still taking 3 days. Problem with this is that it leads to refund guaranteeds from Royal Mail / Post Office. They must be losing a lot of cash.

If I were an ecommerce firm, Id be sending everything via Special Delivery right now. You'll probably end up getting refunds on 95% of it.

Unemployment down in February which is no surprise as we were out of lockdown, will rocket in March to a very high level.

Theres going to be more unrest between those struggling on the low support payments & the vast army of public sector workers on full pay whether working or not

Why can't you just give it a rest about government workers, teachers and all those you've developed a grudge against? FFS...

WTF are you on about you idiot, if you don’t realize there’s a lot of people struggling on the island with the pathetic support schemes whilst others are doing very well you are more stupid than you appear

After the all round criticism of his exit strategy, except from Pongo, Howie is moving the following 

Chief Minister to move –
That Tynwald:
Receives the report Exit Framework: Long Term Approach to COVID-19 March
2021 dated March 2021 [GD No 2021/0017] and welcomes continuing consideration of it and work on it; and;
1. is of the opinion that Council of Ministers should:
a. seek further external input;
b. publish all the evidence relating to the Exit Framework journey being used
to inform the Council's decision-making;
c. publish information on the health, social and economic impact of the
transition from elimination to mitigation;
d. provide details of incremental mitigation strategies to include but not be
limited to household bubbles, incremental opening of lower risk
environments, and surveillance testing.
e. identify dates or pre-conditions (indicators) that should be considered to
enable changes to occur;
f. develop a communications plan to incorporate awareness around residual
risk post vaccination and behaviours to assist with reduced risk of transmission; and
2. Notes that Council of Ministers will report back to Tynwald at the April 2021 sitting of Tynwald for approval of a simplified version of the Exit Framework strategy document and a corresponding delivery plan.
