That's still short of 400k a week, so still some way to go, but it's great to see them finally speeding up a bit.

Daily numbers not great, back upto over 1,000 although positivity rate below 5%.   Must be targeting areas, and the effects of wanting people without symptoms to get tested.

If we vaccinate at the rate of 45k per day (inc Sundays), we'll be through all adults by end of April (in Scotland).   Using the 12 week window as a guide, second jags will start around mid-April, so only a few weeks crossover at the end of the first jag process.  Come May, everyone will be in the second jag process which should conclude by around July.
That tallies with reports yesterday that the UK govt internally believes everyone will be done by August, which they won't admit to publicly yet.
Amazing if it works out like that.

Cases always seem to rise towards the end of the week. Seems to coincide with more tests. 

I wouldn't worry too much unless there are several days of increases or there's a notable increase from. The previous week.

channel 4 news seem to be on a lone mission to dig into the stats that the UKg are pumping out.

Wtf has it taken so long to basically debunk everything they have said this far.

Counting people offered and only doing types of care homes is no way to get us out this mess. We need to know exactly who has been done and make sure the most at risk are done first that's how we lower hospitalisations and deaths, which is the priority at the moment.

I wrote that before seeing todays numbers, we're now bang on target with the likliehood of 45k a day increasing to 60k by the end of Feb.

I looks like they have built a properly scalable model which is good, but it has a few rungs to climb before we are at a peak, I hope anyway.

Maybe the UK Gov actually means that everyone will be "offered" a jag by then,  Incidentally, how many weeks do residents of Care Homes in England have to wait for their second "offering"?.....and when does their first jag actually happen?

Is there not 2 or 3 mass vaccination centres coming online today and tomorrow which should increase capacity even more?

Interesting hint there from NS that she suspects the international travel rules will be standardised uk wide shortly. Might well explain the delay in announcing it by both SG and UKG.

But, as we now know, the vaccines considerably cut transmission of the virus. So having a larger number of vaccinations given to a larger number of vulnerable people, is more beneficial to having slightly more done in one group and considerably less given out overall.

Of course, if the Scottish Government hits its target, this will largely be a moot point...

I just have visions of union flegs everywhere, people walking about in uniforms, saluting the queen before dinner and the odd re-enactment. Everyone trying to out story the next one with their tales of what they did in Nam and them all being so walter mitty that even though they all know each other is lying they just go along with it anyway??
You've been there, haven't you? A horrendous institution.
