The trident the Devil used to pierce Sir Captain Colonel Tom's soul just happens to be on the flag of Barbados. Pure poetry.

GP staff would be underutilised? 

7 days a week is fine if we are rotating staff.

With GP practices doing their normal work during the week, there is a real,danger of burn out if you expect them to work every weekend as well.

Luckily, as we move down the age bracket, they will be less needed (although will have to do the same again for the second jags)

Still no word re the first jag. Pretty sure the guarantee was we'd hear by the weekend. Tick tock NS

Id heard rumours but as you know they tend to "shut up shop" Do you know if all the companies are still sticking to the 3 days in a hotel with a negative test afore you fly?I know we do 


Total policy is 48 hours in the hotel. Shell aren’t bothering a f**k, my mate gets a temperature check at CHC and that’s it.

Yes as you say decent falls in hospital numbers.
ICU 128 from 142 yesterday.
Total hospital numbers 1871 (down by 63 according to BBC.

Mind that getting better isn't the only way of leaving ICU 😉

...and that's a legitimate question for the SG to answer.   There's a higher level of deaths in Scottish hospitals than you'd expect given case numbers and hospitalisations.

Norfolk Breakfast show host you say?

"Tommyknockers. New BBC game show where contestants perform taxidermy on Captain Tom's body by adding on lady parts."

Do you know what the story with administering the AZ vaccine is? Is it the same as Pfizer etc. where you talk folk through it, give them the shot then monitor them for anaphylaxis, or is it a bit quicker than that?

I've only been administrating the Pfizer thus far but last I heard there was no 15 minute monitoring required for Oxford vaccine.

I've had a couple of colleagues receive the Oxford so I will ask them if they had to sit and be monitored.

More curious than anything tbh. Being able to get through more vaccines per hour would obviously be good

To give you an example of what we are dealing with here.

My wife has a job with the NHS involved with data around about vaccination. 

They made 2 posts. One works Mon-Fri. The other Wed-Sun so that there is a 7 day service.

The other woman wants AL so my wife gets asked to cover her shifts. When my wife asks who is covering her shifts this doesnt seem to have occurred to anyone and she is basically being asked to do 14 days in a row. Nobody seemed to have considered this situation might arise.

Being an #NHSAngle the wife agrees to do the 14 days until HR point out she isn't allowed to work 14 days.

Anyway I'm sure it will all be fine

Well anecdotally, i got mine last night, and my auld faither (who's 81 and nearly died with the virus last summer after refusing to take up a ventilator space in hospital) was done a fortnight ago.

If you take out my two young kids that's a decent percentage of my family... Anecdotally.

The Kings Cross centre in Dundee was pretty busy last night, and they were rattling through folk at a good rate. Most folk didn't look like they were in their 80s either. It was good to see.
Wrong end of the stick totally. Wasn't referring to vaccines.

Let's take a few hundred people from all across the UK, assume none have Covid because they passed a temperature test at check-in (walking in from the cold no doubt), stick them in a steel box out at sea for a few weeks and keep sending chopper loads of new personnel in every few days.  What could possibly go wrong?

My Parents got the AZ jag last week and were both in and out the surgery in under 10 mins.

Correct no official monitoring needed for AZ.
However I understand when I get called for my vaccine. I will answer yes to possible anaphylaxis (been hospitalised in past). If it is AZ or Pfizer then in that circumstance they will monitor me.
I believe I am allergic quite badly for some reason in last few years to ibuprofen. Not taken one to test the theory for a few years. 99.99% sure that makes me eligible for any of the vaccines.
