Anybody who, truly, cannot have the vaccinations must be very vulnerable to all sorts of bugs. They will have to either accept the risks and get out there or choose to live a pretty enclosed and limited life. My question to them (and others) would be, what have they done until now? Worn masks in flu season? Avoided contact with children? Kept out of crowded places?

 

I just ask for the freedom to continue life without being penalised for being medically unable to be vaccinated. I accept the risk and want to carry on life, but Government won't seem to let me.

I would imagine the time will come when a certain % has been vaccinated that it won't matter if a minority can't be vaccinated so then everyone will be able to do as they please. I believe New York opened completely after 70% of their adults were vaccinated.

Anyone pregnant. No vaccine yet.

NHS are still actually pushing vaccination if you're pregnant.  However, whilst being pro-vax, I'd be reticent about my wife having it if pregnant.  Not enough time has elapsed for any meaningful results and it's quite the risk...

I can't help but think that it would be better if IOMGov stopped putting out stupid press releases all because 1 person somewhere caught COVID. I get their 'communications' team will be wanting to justify their over the top salaries but it just adds to hysteria.

Cases always gonna happen. What does it matter? Just carry on as normal and keep updating the dashboard.

Any figures available wrighty?

I’ve had a look, and nothing definitive that I can find. Get @Roger Mexicoon the case.

Incidence of anaphylaxis to mRNA vaccines is between 2.5 and 11.1 per million doses apparently. That’s pretty low.

It is clear however that general vaccine hesitancy, for whatever reason, whether reasonable or tin-foil-hat, is a much bigger problem in achieving herd immunity than the very few who genuinely can’t have a vaccine or in whom it won’t work.  And they are exactly the people that need there to be herd immunity…

Your definition of bed wetting is anyone not dressed as a red indian chanting some half wit slogan. Maybe you need to re-calibrate?

No - you are head of the line.  You need to open your stinking eyes, Enigma.

How many will develop long covid, putting serious strain on our health service in the decades to come? 

.............................and how many won't?  By being a CV Health service it has put itself under strain that will take a decade to relieve - aside form the fact that the NHS has exposed a myriad of failings.

How many will be afflicted with cancer, heart disease, kidney failure, diabetes: the list is endless that CV has just added itself to it.  Any sense of proportion has been shattered by the relentless messaging that CV is the doomsday bug and so many on this forum have become infected.

As many of us here have been saying seemingly for ever - this is here, we have to accept and get on with life.  If you don't want to, then take appropriate precautions as you would against contracting, or mitigating against, any other disease or illness.

Hear, hear!

Let's see the 'no hospitalisation, no ICU, no deaths' data of yesterday's waste of bandwidth put alongside yesterday's 'admissions for kidney failure, deaths from cancer, number of heart attacks, sectioned under the mental health act, current waiting lists for hip replacement, fitting of stents, cataract operations and so it goes on - then you'll see that CV is over and we've far more important and pressing medical problems to worry about.

Another easing of travel restrictions. Only need that digital QR code certificate on the NHS App to get into some EU countries.

From Tuesday 29 June, anyone arriving in England from an amber list country and transiting through to the Isle of Man, will no longer be required to book private COVID-19 tests in England.

The change follows engagement on the issue between the Manx and UK governments.

To qualify for this new transit exemption, passengers must remain in their port of entry before onward travel to the Isle of Man or, if leaving their port of entry, they must be entering England for the sole purposes of continuing their journey to the Isle of Man.

Passengers will need to do the following before travelling to England from an amber list country:

On the passenger locator form, carry out the follow steps:

  • Select ‘Stay in the UK’ under the ‘Your travel plans’ section
  • Reply ‘I will be travelling for an exempt reason’ to the question about whether you are required to self-isolate on arrival
  • Select the exemption options, and then select ‘Transit Exemption’

Passengers should be prepared to provide evidence at the border of their onward journey to the Isle of Man.

Full details are available on the gov.uk website.

There are different rules for passengers arriving from an amber list country in ScotlandWales and Northern Ireland.

Isle of Man residents arriving on the island who have travelled to any country outside of the Common Travel Area (Guernsey, Ireland, Jersey, and the United Kingdom) in the previous 10 days are required to isolate on arrival, either for 21 days or for 7 days if they agree to have a test on arrival and again on day 6, at a cost of £30.

Details of the Day 7 Pathway are available here.
