I kinda thought we might be done with this tradition.

This is from Australia, where there is effectively zero chance that either has covid, or it even so...do we really want to eat cake covered in spittle anymore?

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Mister Paul ,well done. Thinking about it, of course the site is live before the announcement - they won't make the announcement until the site is live. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to tell some friends about a site that was quiet (busy today, but quiet yesterday), which wasn't going to turn aw...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Shepherded the first in London (or at the least South West London) to the moderna vax. They were all surprised and pleased to be the unexpected recipients of the 3rd vaccine. Someone asked me if anyone had reacted to it yet. I was able to inform them that the 3 people who had completed the 15 minute...

Apparently first AZ is the worse one and second Pfizer.

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Haven't made plans. Australia is sadly far out of reach, and probably will remain so for a long time.

Meanwhile, I am imagining a shepherd's hut just north of Richmond, Surrey πŸ€”

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

PS: I was santa this evening. We had a dozen doses over and I ended up sending a few late 40s neighbours in for a last minute vaccinations.

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Got my 1st yesterday, AZ flavour. The injection didn't hurt but I don't recall someone punching me in the same spot as hard as they could, oh well, still worth it. If just your arm is sore, you got off lightly! I have met a few people afraid of the AZ injection, and it turns out they were so sick l...

A definite sign of spring. I have just sat outside in a patch of sunshine to cut my fingernails.

Re: Meanwhile...

If the police hadn't banned it, it think it would have finished by 6.15pm. A minutes silence only takes a minute. I wouldn't have got there until close to 6.30pm, so decided not to bother.

As it turns out, I would have arrived before the arrests started.

Re: Meanwhile...

I got stuck at a vaccine gig and wasn't able to get to Clapham Common. Feel I let the terrorists win. 😒

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

I have hardly seen an over 60 at various vaccine sites in the last 3 weeks. I'd estimate about 80% were born in the 60s.

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

My understanding is if you tried to register directly, you would only be allowed to book if you entitled. And obviously those in earlier groups should go through first, but standing back when there are slots going unbooked doesn't help anyone. We have never wasted any vaccine, but a few calls were m...
