Eating rubbish doesn't cause excess deaths, really.  The rate remains at one per person.  People who eat healthily and take exercise still die, they just die of something else - and whatever it is we die of, it's usually something that needs expensive treatment first.  The idea that we can all live healthy lifestyles with no cost to the NHS until we die in bed aged 102 - not realistic.

What have I just read. Anyone saying obesity isn’t a factor here is wrong.

I haven't been offered the vaccine yet.  My eldest works in a care home so he's Group 1 for the vaccine and he got his nine days ago, no side effects.  Clinically extremely vulnerable people are in Group 4 so I'm expecting to get a call sometime early next month.  Looks like your area is ahead of some others.

Yeah I think we're lucky down here that the rollout is progressing quite quickly. I'm Group 4 too and feel fortunate to get my first jab yesterday.

 

I feel fvckin horrendous today though. Woke at 2am shivering and couldn't breathe with a tight chest. Up all night with the worst headache and fever ever. Feel totally zapped and no appetite/energy. Hopefully these side effects wear off soon :unsure:

Why don't the government use their scare mongering propaganda skills to put people off McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, processed foods and the list goes on and on.

Why don't the government use their scare mongering propaganda skills to put people off Tofu, cos that is proper shit.

My missus had it yesterday (NHS) and she's feeling extremely peaky today. I have the flu vaccine every year and I've never had any side effects from that, although loads of people claim they do

Did you get given a leaflet on side effects?

If you feel that they are severe then there should be a way to report them.

Don't know if its been posted before, but those in Leicestershire who are over 70 and/or clinically extremely vulnerable can now book their own vaccine without waiting to be contacted

They have all gone, 1000 a day for 7 days, just tried to get my dad one but it was to late.

Wouldn't it be in everyone's interests just to set up vaccine production plants all over the world 

I guess it is not an overnight job, expansion of existing plants and people is likely to be much quicker.  I am sure there will be some new ones popping up though.  Fortunately the AstraZeneca vaccines is made in the UK, as I don't like where this EU storyline is going, wouldn't surprise me if they co-opted all production from Belgium which is providing our Pfizer doses.

My immune system is fvcked mate (hence being in the vulnerable group). I stopped having the flu jab years ago as it made me feel rank for days after so no surprise I feel shit after the Covid one too.

Look after yourselves people. Life is nothing without your health. 

Feeling rank is probably better than dying from flu. I would get your jab if you are vulnerable.

Another 150-odd cluster cases (about 1/3 of the daily total) from another missionary training school over here.

 

I'm not sure "virus" was the Word that the Man Upstairs wanted spreading, guys.

You're absolutely right of course. I'm just a big pussy and really should get back in the habit of a yearly flu jab.

At least you know that your immune system is doing something. Vaccine side-effects wont seriously harm you but covid could. Fortunately, give it a week or two, you're protected at the very least from a serious case of covid, and probably covid completely.

So I keep seeing articles about the government being confident they'll have enough supplies to hit their target...am I going mad or were there not articles a few weeks ago where the government said that we already had enough stock to vaccinate the top 4 vulnerable groups?

That's rubbish to hear...did you say that some of these groups seemed to be purposefully spreading the virus?

The Government are stepping up the guilt-tripping by showing people needing oxygen and "telling them you don't bend the rules".

 

I mean, only a few months ago quite prominent people were prepared to shake their hand. Times really have changed.

You probably ought to. Flu is another coronavirus and the smart scientific talk is that the flu jabs for the autumn of 2021 will include a top up to combat the latest mutations of Covid-19. This is so that we don't run the risk of a further wave of infections and tens of thousands of deaths in the winter of 2021-22. Meanwhile I was at my GP surgery yesterday and I was told that although I am not over 65 I have been put in Tier 6 for vaccination. Considering that vaccination of all the over 80s in my town was completed over three weeks ago and they started over 70s last week my turn is not that far away.
