Given that we’ve been vaccinated - largely safely - for generations, I’m not wholly clear on the explanation for the current situation, other than that the origin of Covid is a little opaque and the vaccine has been developed quickly.

I do wonder what would happen if, say, tomorrow there was an amazing breakthrough around vaccination against cancer cell growth or the like.

Excuse me. Please take your place in line behind those of us for whom it is exquisitely offensive. Many thanks.

Cancer vaccines are under investigation, FYI. Small quantities of mutated proteins known to cause cancer in cells are safe as a protein immunisation, to get your immune system primed.

I've not looked at efficacy lately but it's an active area. As are oncolytic viruses, which is part B of the relevant headfuck.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I guess the HPV vaccine is getting close, not vaccinating against cancer, but a common cause? I believe the majority of cervical cancer is caused by HPV. They started vaccinating girls in Sweden 2016, and added boys last year, so both my oldest were vaccinated when they were 11.

Another part of this, is contrarianism for the sake of contrarianism. And I hate to sound like an old man, but I’ve found millennials live down to this stereotype constantly.

Saw a Tweet on Kyrie Irving’s idiotic “stance” against vaxing that captured the essence of this mentality better than I can articulate it.

Covid, Brexit, climate change, American election race, the EU, Billionaire space race, the Premier League, the Chinese, cancel culture, Royal family, media. I could go on.

OK, so as ever I'm not the sharpest tool in the box* and am getting confused...

Because of various health issues I'm vulnerable to COVID. I'm meant to be getting a booster at some point soon. The government (Kwarteng is today's spokesperson) says that the booster scheme is behind schedule because people who are due them aren't getting them.

I go to the NHS website to book in for mine and it tells me 'NHS staff and care workers only at this time'.

So which is it? Get it booked now as HMG are saying or wait until invited as the NHS are saying?

Anyone? :scratch:



* - in my defence I have long term mental health issues and when they flare up, as they have recently, cognitive reasoning is one of the first things out of the window. Sorry.

Not sure mate, your gp will be the best advocate and have the latest news. It does seem to be a shitshow suddenly, the jab program. Best of luck, if I see anything I'll post it here.

I took my mother for her booster a few weeks back. She's on dialysis and was given a letter by the renal team to book it. Phoned, booked, sorted.
Got her there and was told that she shouldn't be there as it was only transplant patients that were eligible at that time. To be fair to them they did it anyway.

Javid doing a presser at 5 about boosters apparently.

He can explain why they're fucking it up, maybe get Kate Bingham back if the whole thing only worked when she was there. Just an idea Saj, you peeled bollock.

So he accepts cases could reach 100k a day but getting people back in masks just now isn't the right time...

No, no we'd rather wait until it's too late to slow it down like we have the last 3 times and then panic and have to go on ANOTHER FUCKING LOCKDOWN.

Seriously, what is wrong with these cunts?

indeed. the laughbale thing was the news last week that it had become official that the government mis-managed the original outbreak, so lots have people have died unnecessarily, yet the rates were over 5 times higher than the original lockdown at the time of them writing that and yet we don't need to wear masks in shops.

i know lots of people have been vaccinated and the outcomes are different, but covid is still really fucking up people with medical histories and allergies.

Thanks BW. Javid's interview did nothing to clarify the situation. I'll just wait for now and see if the NHS or my GP send me anything.

From the sound of it, if you have some vulnerability that makes it sensible, and rock up and smile at your known medics, you've a decent chance of them accidentally dropping a needle on you... don't tell anyone cunty :lol:


It is amazing as 0269 points out how they keep limboing under our lowered expectations of them. Shitshow.

It's good to know as Bozo says this is all part of the plan and expected.. Fuck off you mop haired clown! As if you have a plan that isn't bumbling around aimlessly. Or is that plan A?

Plan A - Bumble around aimlessly.

Plan B - Bumble around with an aim of sorts. Then when crisis recedes revert to plan A.

Cunts.
