I'm sure BBC Breakfast mentioned it's still over 55's in France and over 60's in Germany. Macron is now condemning this though and apparently still thousands of doses are being rejected.I didn't realise this, is it rolling out for all ages now then? I'm pleased for you if so!

The absolute risk is still tiny. It's the relative risk that they're concerned about, and under 30s they've judged it not worth it when there are alternative vaccines that will be available to them that don't have that risk.Um
Can someone sensible tell me that this Astra hysteria is just hyperbole? Ugh Twitter!
Thank you my angel, all this exhausts me so much I stop being able to see clearly.The absolute risk is still tiny.

I thought Canada's was doing well with their vaccination programme? Clearly I was wrong..
They’re now claiming that they’re ahead of many countries (mostly Europe) but only because they’re delaying the second dose to 4 months which is not what the manufacturers recommend.
This gif shows how disorganized the vaccine administration is
It’s almost the inverse
I was vaguely clinging onto the hope of visiting Canada this summer (having rebooked it in September when things were looking a little more rosy) but having read a bit more about the vaccine rollout, and the biggest outbreak of the Brazil variant outside of South America in BC, i think i'll be getting my travel voucher for the next attempt instead.
The flapping over this when people are prescribed the contraceptive pill without blinking despite a ONE IN ONE THOUSAND risk of blood clots says all I need to know about the overall regard for reproductive health in the UK and globally.While this whole thing stresses me out I have to remind myself that 1 in 10 people get stomach upsets and/or headaches from antibiotics and paracetamol. About 1 in 100 can have ‘serious’ reactions such as dizziness, anxiety, glandular swelling and rashes. Antihistamines can cause palpitations, drowsiness, constipation and a host of other things.
blood clots are, potentially but not proven, caused in 1 in 5 million people who take the vaccine.
it’s important to study the impact but it’s one of those “perspective required” type of things.
Are EU countries still not doing the 12 weeks trick?
Still annoyed that you cannot mix indoors. Mr Dad called yesterday to invite me round at the weekend as he was clearing out the attic and found some of my stuff. I had to remind him that we still couldn't meet apart from in the garden.
So I can go to a supermarket and non essential shops with a mask on amongst complete strangers, some of whom are not wearing masks and the ones who are, are mostly not wearing them correctly, but can't meet one person in my family whom I know has been vaccinated and hasn't even left the house in weeks.
