In good news - my wife got her appointment through today for her 2nd Pfizer dose and will be fully-vaxxed at the start of April . I won't get a sniff at a FIRST dose for months yet . Maybe if I do my make-up really nicely and wear a wig... I can sneak in with her ID and steal her 2nd dose??

Default Light at the end of the tunnel - Covid [vaccine news]

Well Iím back from the hospital.. had my first Pfizer jab about three hours ago and no ill effects as yet ... initial stinging in my arm for a short while as I sat in the 15 minute waiting area .

Iíve got a bit of a dull headache but that could be down to tension.

Iíve had a stressful day then got increasingly anxious as the vaccine appointment got closer ... got stuck in a flaming traffic jam going there .. then the petrol warning light came on on the motorway.... they even queried why I had been offered it being healthy and under 65 so my wife had to explain the situation

Scary moment though as I thought they were gonna refuse me .. ( remember it had already been cancelled last week ) !

Oh well I should be fairly well protected in three weeks ... sadly the pupils ALL return in 12 days ...

Iím gonna immerse myself into researching just how soon the Pfizer vaccine actually kicks in .. the main nurse who was giving out all the key information and answering everyoneís questions said to be really careful for the next two to three weeks then I should be 70% protected ( I thought it was nearer to 85% but never mind) .

So If sheís suggesting 70% after TWO to three weeks I should hopefully have at least SOME cover by the 8th March ( in 12 days ) when 1300 pupils return to school

I have been considering something along those lines ... the headmaster suggested I sign on the sick when we returned in January but I didnít want to let anyone down ...

No apparently there is limited protection until at least day 14 but 21 in older adults, so act like you havenít had it, and even after 3 weeks you should continue to follow social distancing guidelines

and forget this % effectiveness nonsense. All the data is showing that you would be extremely unlikely to get seriously ill from covid and any of its current variants in the UK after that 3 week period. It doesn't get much better than that.

On a macro scale this is misleading; it does get a LOT better than that. If the vaccines only provide individual protection from severe illness, and do not trigger herd immunity/reduced transmission, then the virus will continue to rapidly mutate until, further down the line, vaccine protection is completely circumvented and we need to redevelop and redeploy all over again.

It's good that it stops severe illness and should offer a lot of peace of mind to vaccinated people in the short term, but longer term, if the vaccines only stop severe illness it's frankly a disaster.

So I'm not saying that current signs aren't good, I'm just saying that it's a mistake to think that this aspect "isn't important"

If you have to have the vaccine to do things, such as travel and attend venues, does that mean the immune system stuff is all bollox and they need to stop with the keeping fit and healthy propaganda and start advertising things like cigs again?
