Well, just thank your lucky stars you don't live in France! Until very recently they had only managed a few hundred jabs, typical French over managing, so you had to have a doctor supervising a nurse or doctor administering the jab, then they said a doctor could oversee four nurses, then the press got hold of it and kicked up a right royal fuss.  I asked my doc last week when and how I could get my jab as I become eligible on 1st Feb, he said 'No idea, we've been told nothing'.  Then two friends told us that a new centre was being set up very close to us and I have now got my first jab on Saturday and the second on 18 Feb.  They have gone from utter shambles to organised in two weeks but there is an enormous amount of catching up to do.

Over 100,000 dead. Reading the first few pages of this thread there were some strong opinions being thrown around. What a difference a year makes.

Do they do autopsy for CV19 or is something they can just tell by looking ?

Or do they say something like ....CV19 related complications ?

I think the numbers they it down to CV look like an underestimate when you look at the figure for excess deaths. Its a tragedy and as Neil rightly says the first few pages crikey how green were we? Well I admit I was. Somehow it just didn't seem it would be possible for it to work out as bad as it has done. 

 

Hopefully this year will see the return to some good times and...holidays! Oh how I've missed having a bit of sun on my back!

So some Belgian MEP has accused the UK of wanting a "vaccine war" and a German MP was saying we needed to "think twice" and demanding a trade war with the UK the other day. Okay.

 

If it makes you feel better because you didn't sign an exclusive geographical manufacturing and supply deal with a manufacturer and contracted things out to the EU who spent an extra three months squabbling over the price and future liabilities. Blame the UK.

 

Definitely our fault that you've taken longer to approve vaccines too.

 

If factories in your very own country aren't efficient and can't currently grow the virus quickly enough in the required quantity and as a result are manufacturing vaccines at a slower rate (conveniently forgetting we've been through the same teething problems here and aren't getting vaccines at the rate we expected either). Sure, that's clearly the UK's fault too.

 

You should definitely demand with menaces that UK vaccine plants should be forced to give you the vaccines you need to cover up for the shortfalls in your current production, despite the UK having much bigger problems with the virus.

 

Impose export controls on EU manufactured vaccines and claim "national security" and now try to force private companies to surrender their closely guarded and highly valuable intellectual property so that you can pass it on to those pharma companies that weren't up to the job in the first place.

 

Sh!t, you could even get mutti to have a cosy chat with Putin about how you might be able to work together on vaccine production because we know how the Russians care deeply about IP.

 

Then tell the world this is an example of how non-cooperative and unhelpful a post-Brexit UK is going to be. Funny how Sweden isn't under fire too given it's and Anglo-Swedish company at the heart of it.

 

Mate, you, the EU, have parked a battleship off our virus riddled coast and have started shelling us and you accuse us of wanting a war. Prick.

 

We'll happily send you any excess doses we have from our production lines, if it helps. Though they'll obviously have to go through exactly the same national security export controls as your exports will need to. After all those exact rules are in now on our legal books after adopting EU legislation en-masse on Brexit.

EU officials clearly screwed this up by firstly delaying signing a contract and then delaying vaccine approval. Now they are having to find who can be blamed for this outside of themselves.

Why, after delaying signing a contract, have they also delayed approval. The cynic in me thinks that they were, in some warped way, secretly hoping that the AZ vaccine wouldn’t work as well because it was developed in the U.K.

In reality the delay will be down to the bureaucracy of the EU committee system, but at least â€œall 27 member states are united” or so we are told!

 

This just about sums it up, worth watching even if like me, you don’t frequent Fbook

The funny thing is if brexit hadn't happened I wonder what state we would be in now regarding the vaccine.

I think you can take an educated guess based on this.
