Better 6 months of that than another 2 years of lockdowns and numerous uncontrollable variants arising.

Or it's just better we accept it's always going to be around. Like other viral conditions. Accept some people will die. Like they do every year.   Tailor your lifestyle accordingly.

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

Are you one of those anti-vaccine types?

Just asking.

There won't ever be a position where someone can litigate a pub or shop etc because they think the caught a virus there. I can't see how any public liability insurance issue would present itself?

But the problem might well arise with certification.  Someone might well claim that they caught Covid in a place that demanded certificates and so led led to a reasonable expectation that such a thing would not happen.

Not sure I see the relevance. The vaccine doesn't prevent you catching the virus and while there are signs that it may reduce transmission they're as yet unquantified. How would you know whether you caught it from a vaccinated person or an unvaccinated person?

Again, exactly! This virus is here to stay. Like Spanish flu, AIDS, and all the rest. We live with them. Last year's lockdowns I felt at the time were an over reaction. However, nobody really knew what we were dealing with, or how to deal with it. That situation has completely changed now. The problem is that we have to exit this situation in a well controlled, managed way.

You can look back and criticise as much as you want. Hindsight is amazing. It is 2020 vision. :-)

I'm fully behind the vaccination concept.  Just not behind the delusional paranoid brigade that think life can't go on with covid in the world.

The Times is reporting that the UK will start to offer vaccines to Ireland. Smart move politically, but more importantly from a Public Health perspective

Is that the same Ireland that just 2 weeks ago halted the roll out due to even a tiny sniff of a problem with the AZ vaccine.

Maybe they will follow Macron's lead and offer it to people over 55 but under 65!

Really? is Howard's view on anything really worth putting down in words?

I would take my dog more seriously, and she used to eat her own poop.
