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

They also passed 50% of Phase One (all over 50’s plus various vulnerable and priority groups) given the first dose. It has taken around 10 weeks. 

Hopefully the next 49.95% will be done in around half that time.

They will follow the UK...and the UK see no risk...as I suspect the rest of Europe will announce today.

However, if Europe pause longer, that will possibly mean more supplies for us in the short term.

Sadly, a basic lack of understanding of risk and probabilities drives the headlines. While they compare AZ with Pfizer, the baseline to measure against is the non-vaccinated rate in the same age & health range. Add to that the bias of attention (vaccination is in the headlines) and it can quickly get blown up out of proportion. The UK average is 3,000 blood clots per month. Or 100 a day. In normal times.

Stopping protection against a 11,200 in 323,000 risk of dying from Covid for a 1 in 323,000 risk of thrombosis.

I intend to be the last on island vaccinated.

My theory is that when headlined (obviously) as the fittest, healthiest guy on island, when I then register for Tinder, it will go into meltdown.

Though knowing my luck, I'll soon discover the local STD for Ramsey isn't 81.

Can't wait for Piebaps take on having it or will he be waiting for the Manx variant.

I've already said I'm having the fifezer. Not having any of that English rubbish. It'd probably turn me into a football hooligan or start me off colonizing other countries and re-inventing modern slavery and stuff. :D

I'm due to have it tomorrow. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have concerns. I'd only just made my mind up to have the damn thing and now this. I've sent myself into news blackout for my well-being, so I've no idea what's being said other than on here.  What's the deal? In brief?

this is the last place i would come for such 'information'

This is the only place I come to for info. It’s a microcosm of society and I trust the two doctors on here as much as I’d trust any others, probably even more actually.
