Me too.... the site crashed twice when I was booking...... but as long as you've got the booking reference number(s), we're all set I reckon.

Just got some lateral flow tests delivered. Ordered yesterday from gov.uk and delivered today. Decent service.

I’ve got a few in as well. Been using them for a few weeks for my son as requested by his school.

Can't complain about how easy they are to get hold of free of charge.
Yeah Mrs. Wisdom has some. Not sure how useful it is though when her work has made it advisory to use them. All the diligent people will use them, while the ones who don't give a fuck won't bother, and surely they're the ones who'll need checking most!

Though that was only for seniors, unless it's just down to individual school policy or suggested rather than mandated?

Not sure. They requested the other test as well when he got ill. Think it’s a school policy. They haven’t had a single case yet. He’s been back in from when it was key workers only as well.

Sounds like it will be Moderna .
Wonder Which one goes to the 30's?
I think it may be Moderna I'll be offered too.....

Given the choice, I think I'd probably opt for the AZ as its a "traditional" vaccine as opposed to the brand new RNA type like pfizer & moderna.....

...although keeping in mind that during my time, I've taken beak from a turkish street dealer in the Dam & eaten a huge batch of mushrooms from a shoe-less, bleeding, spaced out welsh lad at glastonbury......I'm not gonna be too picky.....

Jab me up baby.

Yeah, our kids are being encouraged to do one a week at Primary. Not mandatory but advised.

I can't get the link to the article but Tim Spector is in the mail today saying it is the Jab that is responsible for the drop in infections, not the lock down that BJ states.
I'm bloody sick of it now but the lack of confidence in the jab doing its job is wearing on me.

I had a sense of dread when I read that Johnson had said it is the lockdown and not the jab. Should have remembered who was saying it tbf.

Both surely? We’ve had restrictions in place for about 4 months up until recently and it’s proven before that this makes a huge impact on the rate of infection. The hope/expectation is that it won’t increase as sharply as previously due to people having been vaccinated, no?

I'm sure the vaccine must be playing a role. Just referring to this clip I caught the other day.

Yep, still haven't fully concluded all that many vaccinations (an ever increasing %age of first go of course) so it's a lockdown that's pulled the numbers down. The whole point of the vaccine is so they don't rocket up again after, of course!

Infections due to lockdown really

Hospitalisations and deaths due to vaccine

It’s both? This isn’t hard. There’s a clear lockdown effect because we see cases dropping in the unvaccinated groups. Yet there’s also a clear vaccine effect because we see cases and deaths dropping faster in the vaccinated groups.

This is like asking if it’s your heart or your lungs to thank for keeping you alive.
