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.  

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

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

You get prescribed a medication from the doctor, say an antidepressant, take it for a month, get a repeat but the chemist says we haven't got that one, here's a different one instead, it's still an antidepressant, is this an acceptable thing? Is it fuck. 

What happens in NICE signs off a biosimilar medication, then management comes along and moves all patients by default to new generic option, and see what happens.

That can’t, and doesn’t, happen. The pharmacist has to dispense what the Dr prescribes. Drs don’t usually prescribe named proprietary brands. They prescribe according to the BNP generically.

That extends to strength, size etc. Substituting one generic with another is clearly acceptable. I’ve never had an issue being switched. But from experience, GP prescribes 75mg tablets, two, twice per day, so that’s 150mg twice per day, but my pharmacist won’t dispense 3 x 50mg. There’s been supply difficulty this last couple of years. I’ve ended up running from pharmacy to pharmacy, or having to go back to GP on several occasions.

Taking your example, by extension, if the GP prescribed a vaccine to be administered by the pharmacist, it’ll be vaccine for XYZ, and not by specific manufacturer.

What’s the British National Party got to do with it?;)

Quote from a CNN news article-

Mixing Covid-19 vaccines is not recommended, Public Health England’s Head of Immunisations Dr. Mary Ramsay said Saturday, after government guidance was updated this week to say the interchangeability of Covid-19 vaccines was a "reasonable" option.

“We do not recommend mixing the Covid-19 vaccines – if your first dose is the Pfizer vaccine you should not be given the AstraZeneca vaccine for your second dose and vice versa,” Ramsay said in a statement.


“There may be extremely rare occasions where the same vaccine is not available, or where it is not known what vaccine the patient received. Every effort should be made to give them the same vaccine, but where this is not possible it is better to give a second dose of another vaccine than not at all,” she added.

Now, BBC news reporting that the information about mixing vaccinations is wrong and the BMJ want the American press to retract.

Confusing.

Anyone had a false / spam vaccination email?

I’ve had a pretty valid looking one from 111@gov.im ‘confirming’ 2 vaccination dates in jan and feb. There’s only one typo in it and it uses my name rather than ‘dear patient’ so it seems mainly kosher except that:

I haven’t lived in the Island for 20 years now and am not elderly or a health care worker or any vulnerable group  

There are no links to click on or anything dodgy. It tells me to ring 111 if I can’t make the dates

Very odd type of spam unless they’re trying to overwhelm the 111 number 😕

Take a screenshot and post. Edit to redact your address/name

have you double clicked on the senders address to see what it actually is, not what it pretends to be.

Theyre posting, not e-mailing, I think.
