Vaccine- who will have it?

Unlike the AZ vaccine extension this is very controversial.  No one except the British government seems to think that extending the gap to twelve weeks is a good idea.  The manufacturers and the BMA have both warned against it.  Still if it allows Howie to go round bragging how many people have had a needle in their arms, who cares if it offers reduced protection?

Tend to agree with that. The evidence for extending the time to 2nd dose is more robust for the AZ vaccine. It also seems a bit unnecessary. So far around 50% of the vaccine administered here has been Pfizer, but ultimately, given the amounts the UK has ordered, it is likely that we will get a lot more AZ vaccine than Pfizer. Extending the dosage interval for the Pfizer vaccine will have relatively little effect overall on the speed of rollout, compared with extending the interval for the AZ vaccine, but may (it is only a may) impact those individuals that receive it with the extended interval.

On the other hand, great to see they did 1347 jabs yesterday!

It was quite revealing when at one of the briefings last week he spent quite a while explaining how the IOM's clinicians had debated whether to extend the period between doses, and it was a consensus

Who is talking about setting up in a cowshed?  There are plenty of nice, warm venues large enough to do this on the IOM without OTT adaptations.  

Always something to moan about.  Can’t you just be grateful that you live here and not, virtually, anywhere else in the world.  Last time I looked the UK/CI/IOM were streets ahead of the rest of the w

Based on that and people I know in the UK, they are already into phase 2 and have given a jab to everyone on the list above (in some areas, not in others)

I keep speaking to people who assume because of our small area etc we will be ahead of them.

Its embarassing when I explain we waited longer than anywhere else to start and had to build places that didn't open until late February 

How much of their population is fully protected? Around 2%.

How much of our population is fully protected? Around 15%. That includes the vast majority of our most vulnerable. 

Total number of jabs per capita here is now higher than UK.

Nothing to be embarrassed about.

Must have had a big delivery of vaccine - showing 19634 on vaccine dashboard for today.  Almost double what it was previously.  Should see an increase next week

You would certainly think so.

But currently only around 2400 booked in for 1st doses between today and Monday (15th) nothing beyond that. Hopefully we'll see lots of appointments being set up, over the weekend, and 1000 a day again, right through next week.

But in this case the approval is provisional and trials are ongoing. In multiple jurisdictions.

And no, I’m not a biochemists, but it’s lawyers who have ended up keeping developers of medicines and vaccines out of trouble by examining the protocols for trials and the grounds for approval after biochemists and regulators screwed it up.

So John, when this pandemic ends, do you think we'll hear everyone saying "Thank goodness for the lawyers getting us out of this mess" and people will come to realise that those clever scientists (who had to take risks) just got in the way?
