Covid: Can we really jab our way out of lockdown?
05/01/2021 | news | health | 3,064
A shortage of glass vials, an overload of bureaucracy and lengthy safety checks could slow the UK down.
A nurse in Portugal just died suddenly after receiving the (Pfizer) vaccine. But it's fine, the vaccines have been properly tested and are completely safe Removed

Yes the vaccines have been properly tested and are safe. Unfortunately some people will have a negative reaction to the vaccine. Fortunately this is a very small number. This is no different to any vaccine out there at the moment.
05/01/2021 12:18:48 0 0
I think it is certain we will all die, after receiving the vaccine or not. One hopes the body will react to the vaccine. Hopefully the reaction in any population is benign enough to show a marked positive improvement in general health. Nothing foreign that enters the bloodstream can be completely safe.

Misleading stuff this - as is most of the guff peddled by the media.

You cannot defeat a virus - you have to learn to live with it. Viruses mutate quickly.

We've vaccinated against flu for decades yet each year a new variant of flu comes round.
Human Beings/Apes co-existed with (corona)viruses for millions of years; only 150 of those years with vaccines.

I, nor my family, will be taking part in Pfizer's highly experimental drug trial (that doesn't end till December 2022). No messenger RNA going into our bodies, taa. Passports, for work, school, access to healthcare/NHS, socialising, travel? Mandatory?
Looks to me like was Icke right.
05/01/2021 12:33:50 35 2
by co-existed with viruses, you mean died from viruses. Smallpox accounted for up to 13% of all deaths before vaccination
05/01/2021 12:37:03 17 0
We were also far wider spread between communities and less interconnected back then therefore a virus could wipe out a small group quickly and not spread across the globe as we are seeing now
05/01/2021 12:48:13 24 9
Of course, that's your choice. But please keep at least 2 metres away from me, work from home and avoid public places. With choice comes responsibility. Make the COMPLETE choice and don't cherry-pick the bits you like.
05/01/2021 12:56:38 16 10
Please wear a badge to indicate that you've refused the vaccine so that the more sensible/rational/informed members of the population can avoid contact with you knowing you are more likely to be infected.

News falsh.
You and your family aren't special.
There are many things of far greater public interest than you or your family. This is one of them.
Learn to live with it, as you would say.
05/01/2021 12:00:55 28 44
The need to inoculate the whole population for this virus is ridiculous.
If given to those who are currently recommend to have the flu jab, I'm sure it will save thousands of lives. But to insist everyone has it, when it's less lethal than flu to the healthy under 65's is crazy.
Make no mistake Johnson, Hancock, Whitty & Valance are Incompetent.
It's the most overhyped Bug since the Millennium.

One word
Smallpox was eradicated by clean drinking water, good sanitation and better nutrition, as indeed were all such disease of the gut. Don't believe the Big Pharma hype Removed
05/01/2021 13:00:05 1 3
05/01/2021 13:06:11 1 4
malaria can be eradicated by good sanitation too..most people in 3rd world countries have Herd Immunity
05/01/2021 13:30:00 2 2
If that were really the case, then tens of thousands of people that live in places where they have no access to any of the things you mention would still be dying from Smallpox.
05/01/2021 14:45:31 1 0
Smallpox killed 260 million people in the 20th century alone. It was eradicated by an extremely successful vaccination programme orchestrated by the WHO. Although it can be spread by poor sanitation, the primary method of spreading was prolonged face-to-face contact, but occasionally it spread via the airborne route, like the flu and covid-19. Variola major smallpox killed approximately 30%.

The negativity on this subject is absolutely astounding. I am no fan of how the Govt have managed this Pandemic, but when it comes to vaccination we are literally leading the World.......and people just moan. I'm afraid the only answer here is to have a little patience. I for one am happy to applaud all involved in the vaccine roll out - keep up the good work!!

Just to be clear. The UK alone has vaccinated 1,200,000 people so far.
This is twices as many as the whole of the EU, where France had imuunised just over 500 people and Holland ZERO.
This is a start from scratch process and Britain is leading the race.
It isn't easy with the whole world competing for every resource but no country is doing more to get the vaccine into people's arms.
I'm not sure where Slicknick has got his figures from. If he is referring to the clinical trial data a lot of people tested will have received a placebo not the vaccine and many may not have received the optimal dosage. There hasn't been time to properly study dosage or long term affects although vaccinations tend to be a black art rather than a science. Removed

The other question is whether the vaccine will work. Concerning news that the strain found in South Africa seems to be more resistant to the current vaccines. We might have vaccinated a lot of people only to find out that the vaccine no longer offers protection. Then we are back at square one.
you do realise that is the plan don't you, this is never going away now, until the goal; of the elite is achieved, UBI, mandatory annual vaccines, bio passports, freedom passes, social credits and carbon allowances to determine what you can and cannot do, this was never about a virus, covid is just the trojan horse Removed

Excellent analysis of the situation. Granny-grabber Macron and his corrupt mafia friends in the EU have hoodwinked the remoaners in to thinking they are a beacon of covid enlightenment when the facts now clearly show the EU covid rates are completely out of control.

There is a medical guideline that says a 'prescription should be taken in its entirety, don't stop just because you feel better'. The government imposes a lockdown then cancels it the minute people start to 'feel better'.

Maintain the lockdown until the disease has minimized not when it starts to feel good. Starting & stopping a lockdown has little value, it is a waste of time & money.

With 50,000 new cases a day and 1000 detahs a day this is clearly worse than the initial first wave.

Therefore covid jabs should be made mandatory and those refusing it should be named n shamed, fined and refused any NHS treatment until they play ball.

It's not about YOU, it's about protecting all of us. A vaccine is the only solution, so get it or pay the price like the social lepers you are.

The Oxford vaccine is a viral vector vaccine comprising a virus derived from a Chimp's turd which has a gene added coding for the spike protein. So it is a GMO injection which has unknown long term unintended effects. The Sputnik one uses a human vector virus even more risky! As for the mRNA one it still is unproven. Clinical trials were not designed to show they can save lives, reduce admissions.

A "Quitter" is someone who signs up for something, then gives up due to lack of dedication. You can't be a Quitter for something you never voted for.

The vast majority of leave voters were not old enough to vote in the 1975 referendum - so the insult is highly inaccurate.

As is the comparison - we're only asking you to get behind this vaccination, not to keep the government for another 40 years

What is their game?
This is not by accident
It is no coincidence that nearly every story they publish is a negative one, they hide away good news and spin stories to give a negative viewpoint

Over 60000 daily cases??? in reality I bet the true number is even way more than this as this tory regime has reach maximum of its testing capacity

I wonder if Comrade Remoaner could tells us exactly how many people in the UK have died OF Covid-19 rather than how many people have died WITH Covid-19?

There is a difference!

I bet there isn't another country in the world that counts people who 'died upto 28 days after a positive test' is 'Covid-19 related'

How many people died in hospital whilst connected to a ventilator?

Just to emphasise the size of the task to get 12 million vaccinations in 7 weeks would require 3 injections per second for 24 hours a day. Even if this is spread across 1000 centres working 10 hours a day for 42 days that is still one injection every 2 minutes. I don't want to be negative but please can we be realistic about the size of the task that faces us and the timescale we need.
