Rather than SA a better comparison is Denmark which so far looks very promising low levels of hospitalisations and more importantly deaths.

Let the mathematicians keep scaring the population with talks of 2M infections a day though.

Test results came back this morning as negative! Has anyone been to get their booster at Alder Hey? If so, do they know how long the queues are after five? Might chance it after work.
excellent news that mate, can't help with Alder Hey sorry

True. It's the best I could do but that's granting the premise halfway, in that it's a serious crime to book times you don't intend to use. In Sweden it's the equivalent of a £35 administrative fine if you don't show up to a time booked so raising that fine is the best deterrence to that mischief.

There is no penalty for such time wasting in the UK.

Anyone indulging in such childish behaviour should simply be identified.

You can’t cancel Covid jabs on the day in the England. Even if you phone the helpline. My son had his jab booked, because the date he was due to be jabbed in school  was within 30 days of having Covid. The in school team postponed, and when they got around to his school, it was on the day we had booked (after 30 days). They gave him the vacc at school, so we then had an extra appointment that was impossible to cancel - and I really tried.

That makes it hard to hold people liable, as there is no safe path for any on the day issue preventing taking up the appointment.

Whilst I am totally with you in pointing out the potentially fatal consequences of their actions, you can't pin the 170K fatalties on them. 17 would be a push. Still enough in my mind to have them locked in a cell already.

--edit-- there must be a law we can use to take out the 'people' responsible for block booking vaccinations to prevent other people from taking them. Maybe even counter-terrorism?

The amount of examples we have seen in the last 18 months of people listening to Joe Fucking Rogan, honking a shit ton of whatever he's selling - taking it - and ending up ill or worse is too numerous.

That's not to excuse certain RW governments from blame, because they're very much at fault - the media giving equal airtime to some absolute pondlife hasn't helped matters neither.

True. It's the best I could do but that's granting the premise halfway, in that it's a serious crime to book times you don't intend to use. In Sweden it's the equivalent of a £35 administrative fine if you don't show up to a time booked so raising that fine is the best deterrence to that mischief.

They're doing it deliberately.

The end outcomes are the same, they kill people.

Someone I work with who have refused the vaccine since Day 1 as they don't trust what's in it, says it's going to give her heart problems etc. (also is very skeptical of 5G, etc.) announced they have tested positive this morning. Feel awful. Can't work. Going back to bed blah blah.

Anyone indulging in such childish behaviour should simply be identified.

Clearly comparing people group booking vaccination slots to ISIS is taking it too far, a better comparison would probably be the waste of oxygen campaigners intentionally blocking ambulances on the roads.

What surprises me is that someone would look at a comment like that and, rather than agree with the sentiment that people who are group booking vaccination slots are c*nts and probably contributing to more people dying (as those most at risk from COVID will on, average, be older and less likely to persist with internet bookings) they instead criticise the, admittedly, OTT analogy.

There is also a world of difference between someone who makes a booking and doesn’t cancel it (assuming that they had the option to cancel it) and someone who blocks books vaccination slots to prevent others from accessing potentially life saving treatment (ironically under the guise of being pro-freedom) - one is being a selfish twat, the other is contributing to a higher rate of serious illness and harm, either by being of malicious mind, being a fucking idiot blindly following someone of malicious mind and, probably rarely (and these are the ones I have sympathy for) being picked out to be vulnerable/easily persuaded by those of malicious mind and being essentially groomed as part of the group.

It’s absolute shithouse behaviour in its purest form and it needs calling out, rather than criticising the manner of how it’s being called out.

Firstly, the comment was directed at people with "anti-vax" thinking. It had nothing to do with block booking vaccine appointments. The analogy is absolutely abhorrent and dangerous. He was demonising and dehumanising a group of people who for whatever reason have made the personal choice not to get a medical treatment, by comparing them to ISIS. You do this by comparing them to cold blooded barbarians who behead people. It's a disgusting comparison and trivialises the actions of ISIS and all their victims.

To be clear although I don’t agree with it I don’t think it’s that shocking considering the blind anger it makes most people feel when they find out it’s been going on.

My view on it is that (amongst a few other things that have become ‘fair game’ for whackos during this pandemic) should be made to be their own specific criminal offences with strong punishments.

Mate, vaccinated people are spreading this all over the place as well. The science proves this. If anything, it was brought to the West by the vaccinated who are able to travel freely. The variant developed in a part of the world where vaccine supplies are low because wealthy countries hoard vaccine supplies and not because of "anti vax thinking" as you put it.

I'm very uncomfortable with some thoughts I've had of late in combating such individuals - I know it's making me out to being an reactionary - but with the power of the Internet, it's inevitable that such poison is getting to vulnerable people.

I think those advocating Anti-vax thinking and especially those who are actively taking direct action to such as filling spaces to get jabbed only to not do are no better than ISIS.

That’s the quote ‘especially those who are actively taking direct action….’

You can ignore the second bit of the sentence and focus on the first of you want to but clearly it does have something to do with those people block booking vaccination slots as it directly references it.

I don’t think anyone is (intentionally) trivialising the actions of terror factions or their victims, people have just had enough of moronic, factless bullshit under the guise of ‘pro-choice’, it reeks of the anti-abortion stuff which we’ve seen in the past and the reality is those who campaign the most vehemently for pro-choice are the ones who really want the population to have as little choice as possible.

That's a poor analogy though. No unvaccinated person purposely spreads the virus. The thing is that this variant highly transmissible and developed in parts of the world where the people are unvaccinated not by choice, but rather because vaccine supplies are low.

The anti-abortion cranks comparison is admittedly a better comparison - but still the ultimate result is that people will die because of such selfish actions.

They dont no. What they do is either completely ignore the experts saying 'you need to be vaccinated to limit the spread and protect people' or they see experts saying 'you need to be vaccinated to limit the spread and protect people' and think they know better. Either way is thick, selfish and particularly dangerous.

So you think there is nothing wrong with Piers Corbyn telling his rabble to go out and burn the offices of MPs to the ground then.

I guess you were also OK with Trump inciting a riot at the Capitol in January. What about the hook handed preacher now in jail in the US, Abul Hamza isn't he.

Both inciting crowds to do their bidding, they are scum each and every one of them and their followers are as bad

Where did I say that. Inciting to violence is obviously a crime and unacceptable. Something definitely also needs to be done about the people deliberately block booking to prevent people who want to get vaccinated.

I don’t want to speak on behalf of anyone here but the idea of comparing some of the stuff that we’ve seen over a this pandemic with the actions of terror groups isn’t anything particularly new and isn’t as baseless as it might seem.

Off the top of my head:

- People block booking vaccinations
- Piers Corbin arrested for inciting arson
- Kate Shemerani comparing NHS staff to Nazis

There’s tonnes more but I’m making my point I think, it’s not a million miles away is it when you’re delivering that message either via Twitter to millions or standing on a stage doing it with a mass of people watching. Of course it’s nothing like the same as the absolute worst we’ve seen from terror factions across the world but the ethos is similar (albeit in this case they’re inciting it rather than delivering it).

Swerve it hijacking this thread with these useless discussions that almost always end up with no resolution. Sure there’s another thread where having or not having the vaccine can be discussed.

You are right. Apologies. Not going to engage in it anymore. Will save this energy for recovering from COVID.

Are you saying that the vaccinated can't spread the virus as well?

Honestly, what the fuck is the point you think you're making?

https://www.newscientist.com/article/2294250-how-much-less-likely-are-you-to-spread-covid-19-if-youre-vaccinated/

Quote
A recent study found that vaccinated people infected with the delta variant are 63 per cent less likely to infect people who are unvaccinated.

This is only slightly lower than with the alpha variant, says Brechje de Gier at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands, who led the study. Her team had previously found that vaccinated people infected with alpha were 73 per cent less likely to infect unvaccinated people.

.....


De Gier says they cannot calculate the full reduction in transmission due to vaccination, because they don’t know exactly how much vaccination reduces the risk of infection. But even assuming vaccination only halves the risk of infection, this would still imply that vaccines reduce transmission by more than 80 per cent overall.

Yes. Very good, vaccinated people can spread it too. In far, far lower numbers and at far lower risk to themselves and others who have been vaccinated. Its not rocket science, its not brain surgery. If 100% of the global population were fully vaccinated we'd be nowhere near the numbers we're seeing everywhere at the moment in terms of cases, deaths, hospitalisations, whatever. Trivialising the conversation with such uneducated nonsense is pretty scary.

So why haven't you had it? Do you wear masks?

If you read Wabaloobah's post you'll get a rundown on why I'm not vaccinated against covid and why I don't wear masks. He summed it up well to be honest although in a hilarious hyperbolic way ;D I take as much steps as possible to not get covid, period, until there's a really harmless variant going around. Hopefully that is just around the corner. Even so, even during peak waves it's unlikely more than 0.3 % of people have it in the country at once so unless you deliberately seek out social gatherings or go on public transport you have a great chance at not catching it.

I support everyone who wants the vaccine to take it though and I definitely disagree with any attempts at stopping the vaccination program. My body and my choice go both ways for me unlike the stereotype that you were talking about.

I've just had a close contact  notification from last Friday the 17th which is telling me I don't need to isolate but to book a PCR test?

I've got no symptoms, done two LFTs and a PCR since then and all were negative but I've also had both granddaughters and my sister staying since weekend.

Wtf am I meant to do as it'll be Xmas Eve before I can get one as I'm driving back to Yorkshire tomorrow to take one granddaughter home and got a client booked in whilst I'm there 😔🙄

I have felt really rough the last few days. Today marks a week since our booster. and the last time I have left the house. Slept like a log all day yesterday, My issue is where the hell is all this green mucus cough/runny mucus from the nose coming from? My sides hurt a bit from all the mucus coughing.  Its like a lake. At least today I have managed to get up and am sitting at the computer. My pharmacist said to take paracetamol and lay low for a few more days. Cannot get though to my GP as he is hiding is his covid bunker. They just refer you to 119 and don't seem willing to help at all my GP I mean. I feel a little btter overall I guess.

if you've taken a PCR after the date when you came into contact, I would assume that covers you

Are you saying that the vaccinated can't spread the virus as well?

No, I responded ‘nonsense’ to the post, referring to most of the content.

To be fair the 1 point in that post I’d agree with is reference to ‘vaccine hoarding’.

That's a poor analogy though. No unvaccinated person purposely spreads the virus.

They are purposefully making themselves more likely to spread it.
