In the usual company bank accounts, I would imagine. Plus some new startups. I suppose a small minority of the money will have gone where it's needed.

The batch of vaccine I had on Sunday was made in Liverpool, apparently. *shrugs*

None of this is the UKs fault. It's between the EU and AZ.

Well, no. It's pure, dumb luck, obviously.

Our politicians are cunts, but they're not exceptional.

But two weeks ago they were all saying the AZ vaccine was shit, and they'd only be giving it to people who were older than 55 but younger than 60, because it doesn't work and gives you blood clots.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/mar/25/jean-claude-juncker-criticises-eu-over-covid-vaccine-spat-with-uk

Quote
The EU has been overly cautious and budget conscious over Covid vaccines and should step back from waging a “stupid vaccine war” with Britain, the former European commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has said.

Juncker, who was replaced by Ursula von der Leyen in 2019, compared the EU’s approach to vaccination unfavourably with that of Britain where the rollout has been speedier.

He also said he was “not a fan” of the commission’s export authorisation mechanism under which officials have been empowered to prohibit shipments.

Seems to be a bunch of early evidence that the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine (at least) is considerably less effective against preventing infection and deterioration from B.1.351 (SAViD).

In lighter news, it might also be that mice can now catch it.

I've been feeling a bit more positive about the COVID situation the past few days but this news is somewhat bleak. Reminds me of the Sopranos.

Absolutely buzzing at the prospect of this getting in the rat population the day before I get the jab. OMEGA FD.

You're never more than 6ft from Covid, forever, at best.

Trying to book now. Lets me book a first slot then says that I have to book a second but there are none available (or on one occasion asked me to be from a choice of five then gave me no days to chose from). So I can't book the first one. In the meantime slots for the first jab are going quickly. What gives?

I just want my jab!

Just an endless fucking loop. Gives you a time for the first jab then says there are none for the second, fuck off. Yet the time slots for the first ones are going fast, so some cunts are getting them. Doing my nut in.

Yeah sorry. Done, at last. First jab Tuesday. Had to choose a different location for the second jab.

So that's my tip for anyone having trouble with it. And don't bang on about it on here, you egotist.

In a surprise twist this morning I got a text from my GP asking me to make an appointment at the Heath Centre at the bottom of my road, so I'm having it tomorrow evening. Like buses. Must cancel my other one.

Hurrah for the NHS

Nice one!

What’s the current eligibility criteria over there, is it just age brackets (and you wait your turn until your bracket comes around) at this point?

Yeah. Over 45s now. Was only announced Monday so quite impressive that i got the text today.
