It is rather confusing...What the Germans are implying



The EU should consider legal means and even block exports if it does not receive the vaccine doses promised by drug companies including AstraZeneca, the president of the European Council has said.

George and I both got our vaccine at the citadel in Ayr on Saturday. In and out in 20 mins including the 15 min sit down afterwards. We got the Pfizer jag - seemingly the weapon of choice if you’re in one of the big vax centres. Anyone else been yet?

I got the Pfizer vaccine last Thursday in a local Sports Centre. Arrived at the appointed time, taken right away, advised to sit for 15 minutes thereafter, and away. No ill effects.
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

We won’t know our details until tomorrow Brian - Johnson was talking about England only. I think the other 3 devolved nations will caw a bit more canny - hopefully.

Started vaccinations in Australia yesterday. We should get ours in the next six weeks - no infections near us. For some time now overseas arrivals have to go into hotel quarantine for 14 days. It's leaked from there a couple of times but seemingly has been quickly brought under control.

Scotland is trying to achieve this, but all that’s happening is people are flying into English airports then travelling north. We are fighting a virus and a government - :(

Going to Superdrug Tuesday afternoon for the wee jab.
