Covid Vaccination


How long will it take to Vaccinate everyone ?

66 million people need to be Vaccinated Twice, 21 days apart.


Old people first 80+ Then Staggered decreasing age ranges


Won't be safe until Young people get done who are more likely to go out and socialize.


12 - 18 months ?? Who really knows ?


Cannot understand why Pubs can only sell alcohol with a substantial meal

but Restaurants who DO sell substantial meals can only do take away or deliveries.

It depends on your definition of the word 'catch' in this context.

Some infections (such as HPV) can increase the risk of cancer.

If you are unfortunate to be radiated with a single dose of around 70 rads you will have radiation sickness that will lead to cancer in the human body. The severity of this (similarly with Covid) is dependent on age, pre-existing conditions etc.

My gut feeling is that it will probably take around a year before the majority of us (including young-ish, healthy-ish adults) have been vaccinated. Maybe even longer than that for school age children.


But I'm not sure I agree that it "won't be safe until young people get done". Safe/unsafe... it's not a binary switch. I am hopeful that an early vaccination program concentrating on health workers and elderly, combined with widespread testing and a degree of naturally developed immunity in the population will mean that the February third wave is much milder than the Oct/Nov second wave. And that by Easter, we will be seeing very low daily deaths.


As much as I want to be able to go to the pub, take my daughter to see family, go on holiday, get the economy moving, save businesses, etc... keeping the deaths and ICU cases down is still the most important thing IMO.

Let's hope so! I do think it's more likely that the Oxford vaccine will be the one rolled out to the masses, as it's so much cheaper and easier.

I?m genuinely and deeply sorry to hear that Ted


But a) I wasn?t to know and b) not sure it has relevance on a thread about global pandemic and upcoming vaccines


But I too have had family also diagnosed with cancer and know the pain.


When this pandemic is over maybe people like you and me can share a pint/juice and console each other

Also sorry to hear about your loss Teddyboy. Cancer is an absolute bastard and a terrible way to go, for far too may of our loved ones.


But... Covid is a bastard too. 60K deaths so far just in the UK. Many of whom would have been alone in a hospital, unable to say goodbye to friends or family. Unable to breathe, and/or suffering from multiple organ failure. Many anaesthetised and on life support. So let's hope that we can get these vaccines rolled out quickly, and that most of the vaccine sceptics come round. And in the meantime, people start taking social distancing and other precautions a bit more seriously.

I?m asthmatic, but spent much of my time be the least asthmatic I could during this COVID 19, so much so I moved out of London and managed to get off of the steroid inhalers etc, so I wasn?t as ?at risk? as I could have been.


But now I find myself ?fantasising? how I might be asthmatic enough to move faster up the line towards being vaccinated.


I mean don?t get me wrong, I?m glad I?m well and all that, better than ever actually. But am I wrong hoping to be in line earlier than most.


It?s a dilemma, I?m challenging my own selfishness here, which I don?t like. But I?m quite keen to take advantage to stay as alive as possible for as long as possible. Or is this just the quandary of being human.


Does anyone else feel like this?

It's human nature to want to stay alive Seabag. And who wouldn't try and get as high up the queue as they can for a limited supply of a potentially life saving vaccine? It is going to take some time though, even to get the first phase rollout completed, so some patience is going to be needed. If things go well, that is to say, several vaccines come online and they all work well, then it should speed up that first phase rollout. Otherwise it could take most of next year to complete phase one. The UK's biggest hopes are pinned on the Qxford vaccine ultimately.

If you are deemed asthmatic and you get your flu jab yearly you ought to be on the No 6 group in the list, so take it and make sure you have the second jab! The over 65s have priority over asthmatics (unless your condition is particularly bad, as I understand) so you won't be taking a jab from anyone, I think.

Asthma is a lung issue and covid is a pulmonary harming disease so it could take a harder hold and strain your lungs and other organs. It may not make you more likely to be infected but if you are you could well be worse off than non-asthma sufferers.

    • Another recommendation for Sebastian at Bastek. He completely redid our family bathroom and transformed it into such a beautiful space. He is methodical in his work, really pays attention to detail and gives clear, considered advice.  As well as fitting the new bathroom suite so carefully, he did a fabulous job with the tiling, painting and finishes. An added bonus was the great communication and tidiness! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and hope to involve him in future projects. He's on 07947 751333 and is really responsive on WhatsApp. 
    • thanks! i was thinking how to create the spiked things myself as have seen some online but expensive once you calculate how much you need!
    • Suggest you get come Correx eg from an old estate agents sign and cut it into 50mm wide strips. Then get some carpet tacks (15mm long)  Push the carpet tacks into and through the Correx at 25mm intervals so that the sharp ends stick upwards. Then attach the strip to the top of your fence where it is lowest. It  doesnt injure them. It just makes it uncomfortable for them and they soon learn.
    • At sue , do you think the people of southwark or even the UK on their own can solve all of the environmental problems in the world on our own ? And putting garden waste into a brown bin is going to solve the environmental  problems of the world ? I do my bit for the environment by doing my recycling and driving a electric van , southwark council are causing more pollution by having LTNs and causing the traffic jams and vehicles to idle, believe me iam all for the environment but I'm afraid what happens to the earth in 200 , 500 or one thousand years from now is not my concern , I need to makesure that I can keep myself and my family alive now the same as many other people who are finding it difficult to pay for food and pay their Bills,  so I'm afraid I will be putting my garden waste into MY green bin which I pay for via my council tax and save my £80 which would help pay for my electric of gas or food ..  Also heard that council may only be collecting green and blue bins once a month,  not confirmed but just hear say at the moment ...
