    My understanding is that the Pfizer vaccine is more artificial or synthetic than the Moderna one, so people who might not tolerate it (I have an allergy to latex rubber and wonder if I might be one) might be fine with the other(s). I do trust Pfizer, am on a medication they make for years now and have no complaints.

    We watched the 20:00 news on France 2 tonight.
    One very interesting fact to emerge was that, to prevent serious illness after contracting the predominant Covid infection, the Pfizer vaccine is, by some margin, the least effective, with only a 78% efficacity,
    Astra-Zeneca is some 10% better, but the Moderna vaccine, at 96% effectiveness is apparently the pick of the bunch.
    This news must be somewhat embarrassing for President Macron, who was rubbishing the AZ vaccine not so long ago!
    I'm glad we had the AZ one!

    The hot weather doesn't help to be honest - Freedom Day seems to be well-timed for some people, but as I have seen on the news, lots of people are already putting their eggs in one basket when it comes to being in public. As I shop online with Tesco, I have received the circulated email message from the CEO saying that they will still insist on customers wearing masks in store - better to be safe than sorry.

    And Boris Johnson taking part in the Press Briefing at Chequers - I suppose that it had to happen eventually.

    I am just trying to think that the virus is something that has always been with us so that it doesn't sound to me as something recent.
