The Stay Safe Board / Re: Covid Vaccination
« on: Today at 17:55 »
I am torn, more people getting some immunity or fewer getting full immunity .
I do wonder if the vaccine might be wasted on some people,not because they should not have it, but that with one dose they are not fully immune so will still be vulnerable .
Better brains than mine will have to sort that .

Is simple really, the most urgent need is to stop the hospitals being filled with virus patients, then they can start to treat the million people with distressing painful and debilitating illnesses.

Matt and Boris have decided the best way to do that is to vaccinate as many as possible as soon as possible,  if it works then they can plan a way ahead.

One dose of vaccine may not give total protection but it seems that it will greatly reduce the risk of hospitalisation, if we can get enough doses to to treat those at greatest risk.

I believe it will work so hang in there and keep yourself safe.

I feel I have to add this

Joe Biden said in his speech...     when we are no longer here will our children say “ we did our best for them”

They are who matter most to us

On Radio today ,Doctors concerned the advice from the vaccine manufacturers is being ignored in the attempt to give as many as possible some immunity ,they urge the Gov to arrange for second vaccine dose to be given in the specified time ie about three weeks after the first.
Oh dear, what a problem,.

You are just the person to go in there and bang their heads together and tell ‘em to sort it out :) :) :)

I think it’s maybe a bit early to worry too much about today’s news, we are now seeing more hospitalisation from the wider community where people are all different, some dash off to the doctor at the first snuffle while others won’t go near until they are breathing their last,
which may be skewing the figures a bit

What do you mean Mike? No one would be admitted to hospital with a ‘snuffle’.


Perhaps I was simplifying, some people may wait a lot longer than others, possibly until it is too late, before they dial 111 and are advised to go to hospital.

Listened to the local radio today and quite a few people were calling in concerned that they were in their 80s and 90s and hadn't yet been contacted. They were worried that they would be missed as they didn't have access to internet or mobile phones.

I was contacted by our GP surgery by landline as we have no mobile signal so there is a system in place.  Our doctor is going thro  the list alphabetically so that may be why,

Technical Help / Re: Rea View Mirror Needs re fixing

A set of instructions online says stick one side to the windscreen then heat the black side with a hairdryer for a minute,  then stick the mirror on, also says remove ariginal adhesive and clean both surfaces.

Armed Forces / Re: Just after WW1; army or ambulance staff uniform ??
« on: Wednesday 20 January 21 21:51 GMT (UK)  »
This same photo appears as an Alamey stock photo on a Google search for “British ww1 ambulance”

It is captioned as a Red Cross ambulance but who wrote the caption I do not know.

Not much help but paging thro lots of pictures of ww1 ambulances suggests that in wartime use they did not carry registration plates.

Think we need Max on this one  :) ;)

The Oxford vaccine should be relatively easy to tweak, once they have some inactive components to add to the mix.
The Pfizer one I don’t know, if they have to develop a new highly complex protein that may take a while.

Pretty much the same here yesterday, although the 15 minute wait fell apart a bit as some folks waited a bit longer to see if the rain eased off a bit, and one or two pulled the chairs closer together so they could chat whilst they waited.  :) :) :)

No side effects so far
