Wonder how long it will take to catch up every other jurisdictions which just cracked on instead of having 2 weeks holidays?

UK 55% fully vaccinated, Guernsey 52% , Jersey 93% of over 55 & 82% of 50-54 

Sorry banker, uk fully vaccinated is about 40% of population, about 60% with at least one dose. We are at about 30% fully vaccinated, about 55% with at least one dose. 

When it comes to herd immunity, you have to count the whole population, not just adults.

Little wonder there are concerns about the Delta variant.

Data from Public Health England confirms there have been 42 deaths so far in England with the Delta variant. Of this number, 23 were unvaccinated, seven were more than 21 days after their first dose of vaccine, and 12 were more than 14 days after their second dose.

Put in simple percentages - 55% unvaccinated, 28% 1 jab, 17% 2 jabs.

Thinking vaccination makes you invulnerable is clearly not a good idea...

FFS. What part of vaccines are never going to protect you 100% don't you understand?

And those that have natural immunity? Where do they fit in?

I understand it perfectly well thanks. Do you?

Let me please draw your attention to the percentage distribution of the vaccinated fatalities versus the unvaccinated fatalities which stands at 45% to 55%. 

That's an awful lot lower than the vaccine efficacy rates would suggest it should be.

As you’ve been told numerous times nobody uses total population it’s all over 16s 

Are you advocating Covid  vaccinations for babies now?

So none of those people would have died if it wasn’t for COVID?

They were all perfectly healthy people who happened to contract COVID and then die?  Is that really what you think?

People die all the time for lots of reasons.  At any given time a certain percentage of people will test positive for COVID in a 28 day period.

Sometimes those two groups of people overlap. Ie someone who happens to test positive for CoVId was going to die anyway, from cancer, heart disease, embolism, old age, serious injury or even suicide.

Doesnt matter how many jabs any of the above have had.

When it comes to herd immunity don’t forget the huge numbers who have had it without realising.

So in the UK that is more than 80 percent of adults currently carrying antibodies

Is it? Is that why they are talking about vaccinations for over 12's? 

Virtually all babies are already vaccinated against other diseases. 

Children need to be counted. You would have to be a complete idiot to leave them out!

You don't need to draw my attention to anything concerning COVID stats. But you might want to read this. Take a look at Sec 4 and see where COVID is ranked (the next release of these stats is 18th June but I doubt there'll be much difference in the ranking)

Correct, but not here. We are mainly pretty vulnerable. Meanwhile, our vaccination squad had gone on holiday!

Well we identified over 1000 cases so I would say its safe to say there were at least 3 times that.

We are a lot less vulnerable than we were in December and January when it got into the community and did very little real harm.

I honestly don’t believe it will cause and issue when it gets back given where we are now.  Chances are we will know well before the 28th anyway.

Bank Holiday and the pubs are full of people fresh off the boat and plane.
