The prime minister wants round-the-clock vaccination but adds supply is currently the limiting factor.

It's a moronic idea.

Why can you not see that it doesn't increase capacity?

It just subtracts nurses and vaccinators from the daytime capacity, and adds it to the night time.

Net gain in capacity: zero

Likelihood of the poor and elderly being able to get there: reduced, because public transport is not running.

Likelihood of unused slots: increased.

Did you not think this through?

Vaccination centre in Newcastle today, fantastic organisation, unparalleled assistance and medical staff, a credit to all involved ????
How many of the 2 million vaccinated so far have already died of something else? Wasted doses!

The priority should be health workers, teachers, police, army, shop workers etc. The people who are likely to spread it as they are working through this.

Yeah, but 24/7 is not going to make it sooner.

It's just going to force staff to work nights and patients to attend at nights. The same number of vaccines will be administered - because the staff are the limiting factor, even with plenty of vaccine.

Idiot. You'll be out for an hour or two, as you would if you were vaccinated at 10am.

Too many people like you looking for any excuse for a moan and to discredit anything. And in this case, to try and discredit what is a perfectly sensible approach, for those who can attend at that time, shift workers for example.

Or young idiots coming back from a rave maybe!! You possibly?

There's no demand for a 24 hour window from the current group, ie the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Once you get into the younger groups, and those still working, then being vaccinated at a time that works best for you, anytime that works best for you, makes perfect sense.

We were called "reckless" and "dangerous" for our strategy on deferring the second dose.

Now Denmark, Mexico and Quebec are doing the same thing. Joe Biden has proposed it for the US. Italy and Germany are currently studying whether or not they should also do it.

Sounds like we might have been right after all.

The big worry for the NHS at the moment is that once people have the vaccine they will selfishly be out and about spreading it to people who haven't had it yet. So you won't be out of lockdown until it's over for everyone.

“sooner I get jabbed the sooner I'm out of lockdown”

Blimey an optimist on a BBC forum.
As even the most optimistic of politicians say it will be autumn before the vaccine is available to everybody and many say 2 million jabs a week is all that can be supplied it will take 67 weeks to vaccinate all the population twice which take us till April 2022.
So do not expect normal life anytime soon.

You have to wait 'til we are all done and you have a second dose. So don't think the vaccine is going to mean you can go on out or on holiday.Is it too much to ask for you to stay home protect lives and the NHS which in someplace are nearly on the knees
.
"I'd go at 4 in the morning if I had to... sooner I get jabbed the sooner I'm out of lockdown"

A lot of "I" in your comment. Yet a vaccination programme is about "us". If you got vaccinated at 4am tomorrow, you can still pass the infection on to others, and the lockdown rules will apply to you, the same as they apply to someone not vaccinated.
Hopefully everyone understands this.

The big worry for the NHS at the moment is that once people have the vaccine they will selfishly be out and about spreading it to people who haven't had it yet. So you won't be out of lockdown until it's over for everyone.

That is why they need to expedite the vaccination program. They need to be achieving 6k per week at a minimum of 1250 mega centres / areas.

There was talk about those producing the vaccine etc needing early vaccines, but what about key infra workers? If there are massive security breaches as they’re off sick.....

But maybe other countries are vaccinating those really at risk, people who have to work in the community and are therefore more likely to be exposed to the virus, rather than 40 residents in a locked down care home? But of course, doing those which are easy to organise makes your figures look good - try getting 40 supermarket workers, or other high risk workers, in one place all, on the same day.

There's no demand for a 24 hour window from the current group, ie the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Once you get into the younger groups, and those still working, then being vaccinated at a time that works best for you, anytime that works best for you, makes perfect sense.

It simply provides more choice.

We seriously need to reign in our expectations of the vaccine, the government is promoting it as "freedom" "the way out" - but despite everyone, residents and staff, being vaccinated in my mum's care home, they're still in lockdown, no visits allowed as the vaccine can't guarantee safety.

You get some protection after about 3 weeks from the first dose because it takes time for antibodies to develop. You get maximum protection - not 100% - after a second dose. It's been widely reported as such.
Where we need to reign in expectations is the amount of time it'll take to vaccinate a sufficient proportion of the population to stop transmission.

After vaccination you can still catch the virus and pass it on. You're just very much less likely to become seriously ill and die. So, until the majority have been vaccinated, we still need to keep to the rules
