But, the speed with which vaccinations can be gone and is being fine at present is limited by supply, .
And that is the nub of the problem Dave.

Do you remember the great announcements?

In May, the UK government said AstraZeneca would make up to 30 million doses available by September for people in the UK.

https://www.channel4.com/news/factch...ine-do-we-have

Perhaps I missed the equally big announcement when the Government admitted that this was an intention, or an aspiration, but they "now" (July? Sep? Dec?) realised that it was Fake News? Could you highlight it for me please?

Presumably you saw/heard the Home Secretary this morning?

Priti Patel: There will be 'inconsistencies' in vaccine rollout as demand is 'beyond comprehensioní

I'm not a statistician but I would guess that demand worldwide would be approx 5 billion (omitting U18s) and around 50 million in the UK.
The Government seem able to comprehend that keeping the extra £20 per week on UC will cost £6 billion so big numbers are within their frame of understanding.

Please consider my earlier quote:
I heard World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said "We need to close the gap between intent and implementation at the country and individual level,"

Thanks - Gordon

[I'll be generous and admit that ONE might be construed as "up to 30M" ]

Problems do not just exist in the U.K......

Our appointments for the two injections have both been cancelled - the Centres do not have the Pfizer vaccine.....

The Pfizer factory is working at VERY reduced capacity as they have just started rebuilding it - as was announced a couple of weeks ago

They gave virtually no notice of the impact - at least an 18% reduction but in theory, much more available from March onwards

I have been trying to call for an appointment since early am monday. Finally get through to a person who informs me there is no availability for even a rendezvous and to try calling again in Feb.

Sounds like the same problem as around here, they don't know when, or even "if" they will get any, that makes planning impossible for them and us..... 😢

Not good news from Israel.

I wonder what this means for the Tory gamble to spread the vaccine doses apart three months against the instructions of the vaccine producers

I expect they will just maintain that it's fine and carry on with the 12 week policy. It was a political decision and a gamble. It may yet work.

It would have been safest to stick to the manufacturers advice.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I had my first vaccine on Tuesday

Wednesday a sore heavy arm, not feeling so well a bit flu...y

Albert the same although he had a headache on waking

Today a bit better but joints have been particularly sore today

The symptoms are common, at least the sore arm, headache flu type feelings

I wonder if the flare up in my joints is due to antibodies I already have, and added antibodies introduced

I need to be well by Sat , my teeth implants have failed so now I will have implants secured into my cheek bones

Complications with health mean I need a consultant anaesthetist, not a dental anaesthetist to administer a particular sedative , I canít tolerate Adrenaline, which reduces bleeding and I take anticoagulants because of an irregular heart beat and replacement tissue aortic valve, adrenaline sends my heart into overdrive

The guy putting in the implants is one of few who can use this method, he does reconstruction surgery following cancer or accidents

I havenít met him but we have talked on the phone

If it goes well I will have teeth permanently secured in my mouth

A greater advantage in the young

As he said I can guarantee they will last a minimum of 10 years, well that will make me 87 I said, beyond that itís unlikely to matter

Donít say that he said , £ for £ not a great bargain for me

Itís the kids inheritance and they all say go for it mum

So I am, fingers crossed for sat

I am a bit anxious

why, how good?

This is a pandemic, as you so frequently point out thousands have died, Moslems , non Muslims, old people,
nHS workers , and normal people

So a Moslem centre has opened for vaccines

Sorry not before time

No one has excluded Moslems from the vaccination programme in our towns and cities

So now we need to celebrate a mosque has opened to provide vaccines ?

Why would that be needed?

We are all in this together, religion not withstanding, all BRITiSH people treated exactly the same

You can have the vaccine regardless of faith, no discrimination

But
