It will be interesting in Australia to see which of the three vaccines go where in the country.

The government has all three on the books to be supplied when the authorities have done their checking.

The two American vaccines require storage at -70o C, whilst the UK one can be stored at normal refrigeration temperature.

There will not be many places outside the major cities which will be able to handle the -70o vaccines, as they do not have the basic facilities for that sort of temperature.

Rather strange map of vaccination centres on the BBC tonight.

Birmingham has joined Bristol in Wales. Population of Wales doubles at a stroke!
Manchester is a port but it's not Manchester-on-Sea, unless coastal erosion took a giant leap overnight.
There's been talk about English devolution but cities so desperate to escape central rule that they move a hundred miles is drastic.
There was a map once which removed Wales completely.

Let's hope the people administrating the vaccine are more accurate than that map, or goodness knows where the needle will be stuck!  ;D ;D

To be fair, I think the map is only supposed to denote the approximate area, the yellow dot on the left is a light not a marker.
Bell, Salter, Street - Devon, Middlesbrough.
Lickess- North Yorkshire, Middlesbrough.
Etherington - North Yorks and Durham.
Barker- North Yorks
Crooks- Durham
Forster- North Yorks/Durham
Newsam, Pattison, Proud - North Yorks.
Timothy, Griffiths, Jones - South Wales

If it's where they say it is, it's in one of the daftest places in the city -  There's hardly any parking up there and public transport means at least one bus change.
There are lots more suitable places with parking facilities and better public transport.

It's probably easier to get to Wigton ! 


Add - mayhem. They sent letters out to say when it would open and to make an appointment. Consequently, a large number just went along without an appointment and many 80-90 yr olds had to stand in a line for about an hour in the cold.

Really interesting piece in Nature. The fact that we already have vaccines of known high efficacy makes testing new vaccines very difficult as it's no longer ethical to hold randomised placebo-controlled double-blind trials. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00015-0 - this link I think will work.

2 new cases identified yesterday on IoM - one of them a primary-school pupil.

They attended School on Tuesday and Wednesday, and showed no symptoms of the virus, which was then identified in pre-admission screening ahead of a medical procedure.

Has anyone speculated as to how these cases occurred KG , as you said how strict your entry quarantine was for entrants or rentrants to the isle and you'd been doing so well keeping it out ?
