The reason I ask is because I'm fairly high on the list apparently due to an underlying condition. My problem is I phoned the vaccine helpline and they (unbelievably) couldn't give me an answer and gave me another helpline to phone. They gave me another number to phone and beyond belief it was the original number.

I'm getting p1ssed at this stage and they then told me to phone my GP surgery who informed me they are in the dark also. Is this a Scottish problem?


Given the subject, sensible replies welcome.

If you have an "underlying condition", quite a number of forumites think that your life is worthless, so not sure that you will get much help or empathy.

And the ENGLISH never had a drink and yet the worst nation in Europe for alcohol related crime?

Scotland should hang it's head in shame for the 1970s but it took England a decade to address the issue and they as always followed Scotland and still have the problem?

A good question GEORGE. As it stands, (if you believe the experts) three weeks after receiving the first jab you get approx. 87% protection and the second jab takes it nearer 95%. I think that's the Oxford one. But like many others I'm a wee bit sceptical about these figures.

I don't know, stewy, big pharma sayed give the second one two weeks after the first one, but then that well known vaccine expert Dr Anthony Blair comes along and says, hey guys, let's just get the first shot out there to everyone as soon as possible and then we'll worry about the second one. Then that other well known vaccine expert Dr Nigel Farage says he agrees with his old enemy. And then the government says alright then. Crazy

What I find really sad GEORGE is that although I phoned the appropriate helplines and my GP surgery it was a case of getting a mental shrug of the shoulders.

A touchy subject but I'm puzzled as to why. Given the under twenty ones are the biggest carriers does anyone think the should be offered the vaccine and receive it with parental consent only.

Granted the old are most vulnerable and rightly prioritised  but how many in hospital have died and caught it from this group?

Medical science putting a lot of faith in vaccines trialled when we had the puppy covid strain. Several more have evolved and appear to be somewhat more potent.

You'll be rolling your sleeves up again next year for a covid cocktail, and likely to the same for years to come and if it's your fancy to get them.

Much like the multi variants of 'Flu' they'll be guessing a year in advance which strains may be prevalent in 12 months time.

I think Scotland are behind England at present. Most of the over 80s and some over 70s by me have been vaccinated but the two elderly people I know in Scotland are yet to be vaccinated and one is 89 and the other 92.
Id assume they will catch up as they were talking of making sure no areas get too far in front of others and ensuring slower areas get more vaccine. (Not sure if thats only within England though).

That is what the government want you to believe to scare us even more that there are carriers with no symptoms, there is no evidence just hear say, if you have a cold you know you have a cold can we now say that the biggest carriers of the cold with no symptoms are the under twenty ones, its ridiculous and so is covid carriers with no symptoms imo

In the Asian Flu of 1957-58, They Rejected Lockdowns

https://www.aier.org/article/in-the-asian-flu-of-1957-58-they-rejected-lockdowns/

"One might assume that this was due to negligence and a lack of sophistication in understanding the need to lockdown. Surely they didn’t know 65 years ago what we know today!

Actually, this is completely false. Public health experts did in fact consider school closures, business closures, and a ban of public events but the entire ethos of the profession rejected them. There were two grounds for this rejection: lockdowns would be too disruptive, disabling the capacity of medical professionals to deal competently with the crisis, and also because such policies would be futile because the virus was already here and spreading.

Whereas lockdowns in the Covid-19 case might have contributed to a lengthening of the crisis by delaying herd immunity, the period in which the Asian flu had the most severe consequences was only three months. Newspapers barely covered it and most people did not notice it. Histories of the period hardly mention it whereas the early history of 2020 will talk primarily about the virus and the lockdowns. This is due not to the pandemic but to the brutal pandemic policy response."

The Markets crashed in 2007 due to housing bubble greed, they never recovered because they did not let the house prices crash, what we are witnessing, people in history have witnessed before, 1920s and the south sea bubble before it, this is bigger than any of those, WAR followed.
