    There was a really promising study released from Scotland this morning showing the reduction in hospitalisations among people who had the vaccine at least 3-4 weeks ago.

    LIKE, but it's such a short test period.

    The full picture won't be known for years, even decades.

    I absolutely respect the reasoning of people who want to wait for full vaccination/more safety/zero transmission before going anywhere public. And I won't put pressure on them to do anything different.

    But I've already set up my tent outside the local pub. See you in April!

    I mean, I definitely make a distinction between sitting outside the pub and sitting inside or going to a crowded club or music venue.

    Easy enough to socialise mainly outdoors during the summer anyway.

    At a basic level, the really bad strain was so deadly that it was outcompeted by less lethal versions which could spread more easily and died out.

    See also Israel, who are now easing restrictions because of the success of the Pfizer vaccine.

    So glad the tiers are dead at least.

    I honestly cannot wait to be inside a packed pub or club again... and gigs! Fingers crossed 12 June is a go.

    Too much to read through. I've got Butlins booked for May, how's it looking?

    That looks good - 'staycations' allowed from April probably.

    it really irritates me they call them 'staycations'. That word is supposed to be for staying at home, not holidaying in the UK.

    This was by far the most exciting thing for me... and I'm 38 :D What the fuck? I'm DESPERATE to go to a sweaty, packed night club oddly.

    But the first few weeks is very slow progress, then it ramps up considerably quite quickly... i think those changes will feel quite fast - but I also think the figures will drop extremely fast around May time as well (which is what they must be projecting). They dropped fast last year and stayed low all summer, and that was even without a vaccine.

    My entire newsfeed on facebook is like a bunch of 16 year olds being let out for the first time, its amazing.

    If Boris fucks this up, he will get torn to shreds.

    A lovely threshold reached today - West Devon became the first British region in months to fall below the >10 positive rate. They have a rate of 7 and have turned a lovely shade of silver on the BBC’s map

    After going from red to orange last week, Liverpool regions have already gone yellow. The last 2 weeks have seen a heck of a change

    it’s still curious though that 10k people per day are testing positive. The rate of decline is slowing.

    Yes but 3000 of those are asymptomatic completely; a further 6500 or so of them are not hospitalised, experience mild flu-like symptoms. 500 new hospitalisations is too many still, but the majority of the people who would have been hospitalised before have now been partially vaccinated at least, so that number should theoretically be a lot lower going forward too.

    The rate of decline is slowing because we've not changed anything in the last 6 weeks - there's nothing to slow it down further unless they just locked everyone in their homes for a few weeks.

    Congrats British girls. I don't know when France will come out of its semi-coma. I guess in summer because God forbid French people are not allowed to go on holiday.

    Miss Macron said we’ll all be vaccinated by the end of August. I can’t see that happening with the current rollout rate. The whole EU vaccination strategy has been quite the fiasco so far.

    Babes, at the current rate the whole population will be vaccinated in 2024. I know this country makes an art of taking its sweet ass time, but really... no... next. As soon as I can jump on the next train back to the UK, I'm going to be very Silicone, saline, AstroZeneca... inject me

    And that's surely going to be our biggest hurdle to a holiday in Europe later this year

    Broadly, but either without dates or with more cautious dates. I think it is also confirmed that we will have tiers for a bit as well.

    Maybe I'm being pessimistic but the rate of UK vaccinations seems to have declined across the last few days, and it's not being offset by a dramatic increase in second doses. Sunday had the lowest number of vaccinations since their dashboards started on 11 January; I hope this is just a blip rather than an indication of any supply problems.

    Yeah i'd noticed that as well.

    I do wonder if it's "vaccine fatigue" with GPs/etc slowing down their urgency to get people done. Certainly batch-jobs such as carehomes will have all been done now too.

    We're going to see a massive slow down of first doses in March though, for obvious reasons.

    I was reading about the geopolitics of vaccinations, Serbia flexing that it is playing the west off against the east to get doses. Fair play.

    Could it be that there’s a higher rate of people refusing a vaccine in certain age groups?

    Are that many people refusing it? I know a handful of nutjobs but most people are happy to be stabbed. I'd happily accept a microchip from Bill himself just to have my life back at this stage.

    I keep seeing regional news reports about low uptakes on the vaccine in some areas, but I don’t know if they’re just interviewing select surgeries and blowing it out of proportion.

    Supply issues according to Matt Hancock, this is bullocks according to the manufacturers.

    Scotland to aim for reopening most of the economy (and return to a levels system) by the end of April.
