    I haven't chosen not to, but I am in touch with my GP surgery to get information - I believe that there are people who are of higher priority than myself, but that doesn't mean to say that it isn't a priority. My lifestyle has changed so much in the past 18 months or so which means that I don't go out as often as I used to - travelling to a covid vaccine site wherever it is can be an experience. I hope that I can have it done at my GP surgery as if feels familiar to myself.
    I've everything I need to keep me satisfied

      As early as 1980 it was mentioned in the Times archive.

            Your mask isn't intended to protect you from them, it's to protect others from you, although there's scant evidence they do especially if they're non medical masks.

              • The motorist is being hammered with fuel hikes government getting taxes back because of the virus.

                The over 50s will be getting their 3rd vaccine in the autumn a phizer one

                • Had a call from my GP surgery yesterday - they supplied me with a link to a website that can help book appointments for the vaccine, so provided that I know where and when, I will try and book one.

                    16-17 year olds will be able to have a vaccine soon

                      Nothing to do with fuel duty - that hasn't changed.
                      It's the 8-year high in oil price being passed onto the motorist

                          What happened to containment and confinement ffs !!


                          Apparently every plane / coach / hotel / hospital theyve been in contact with will be contaminated through their air conditioning units ..so it will spread like crazy ..

                          • I'm not sure if we're in a fourth or fifth wave now. I have thought all along that vaccines should be mandatory like masks. I'm not going to hate people who think otherwise but the numbers say they are simply wrong. At some point they will be not a part of the solution but a part of the problem as they say.

                            I saw on U.S. news a story about a fully vaccinated mother and her 15 year old who wasn't (but was two days away from a first shot administered) when they both go covid... the mother was not severely impacted but the 15 year old was in a coma on a ventilator for eleven days, big difference.

                              • Got a testing kit a couple of weeks ago and and it came up negative on the lateral flow test - I have to say that it saved my birthday this year!

                                (It felt ticklish twisting the stick in my nostrils five or six times).
