What I find quite interesting is how if covid and flu vaccines are to be mandated it is going to be policed.
The NHS has the highest vacancy levels ever or near abouts.
Care homes run on skeleton staff most of the time, with very low pay rates.

Imagine the situation where staff decide not to be vacconated and they are then disciplined or suspended or not let into clinical areas.

Well that's gonna work :lol:

Again, that's just projection from you. I'm very relaxed about the situation and not in the least fearful. There's thousands of places you can visit on the net - why should I be interested in one, from a biased source, just because you happened to have posted it, especially with your record of posting links to garbage opinions. I'm perfectly happy with the reputable sources that I refer to. Unlike you I'm not getting worked up into a frenzy by frequenting sources that are the equivalent of what someone heard from a bloke down the pub. If you want to keep hunting for the oddball sources that align with your own misguided and paranoid views, that's fine - just don't expect me to follow you down the rabbit holes.

Did you guys see that this was for a treatment, not a vaccine
Covid-19 vaccine maker AstraZeneca on Tuesday revealed it had hit a setback in trials of a treatment for the Covid-19.

The drug, made from a combination of two antibodies, failed its main goal to treat Covid-19 symptoms in exposed patients, AstraZeneca said in a statement.

I think the data is pretty unanimous in the UK. Vaccines work for Covid.

After 2 doses it appears both AZ and Pfizer are 90% effective against Covid for hospital admissions (ie serious bouts of the disease) including the concerning Delta strain.

Most hospitalisations in the UK are now from the unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated.

I might have expected you to have at least taken a look at the article. It is only about the data that Whitty presented, and the way it was presented.

This is not about vaccines. It is about the possibility that we are being manipulated.

Perhaps the article itself is flawed. Perhaps you could tell us why.

It certainly makes a mockery of the official presentation though doesn’t it......


Whitty caught out again like the 4,000 deaths a day crap from last year.

Watched BBC Breakfast today and they went a whole 8 minutes without mentioning Covid. They then went on to interview Professor whatever who stated we should stay locked down as U18's aren't vaccinated.

Shambolic.

The industry has spent 10’s millions installing Perspex screens on the advice of the Government.

Ministers are now being briefed that they did more harm than good, as it prevented airflow.

I’ll file that with the 10pm curfew rule/clueless.

It’s irrational fear in terms of out right risk. But let’s stop pretending the vaccine is completely safe.

Like fear of covid for everyone healthy under the age of 40.

Indeed, but managing the irrational fears rather than ridiculing it might be a healthier approach.

Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines 'highly effective' at preventing hospitalisations from Delta variant, study suggests
A new study conducted in the UK suggests that the COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and AstraZeneca are highly effective at preventing hospitalisation after two doses for those infected with the Delta variant. According to Public Health England, the Pfizer vaccine is 96% effective against hospitalization after two doses, while the AstraZeneca jab is 92% effective.
Last week they were saying the vaccines were not effective enough.

So which is it?

Inactivated vaccines also protect against hospitalisation ...so if that is what is trying to be stopped then they really need to open up and shut up
