    Thanks for the info guy's. At least I know what to expect.
    Regarding having the vaccine; I agree that it may not be necessary from a health point of view; but if I want to travel to the UKicon to see my mum, it should make it easier to travel. I've not seen her since Sept 2019!
    She's 88 and had a stroke recently; so the sooner I can travel without having to confine for a week on arrival, the better .

    Go, don’t waste time. As soon as the travel ban between regions was lifted a few weeks ago, I took my little daughter and drove to my parents.
    Dad is 86, and I don’t want to not see him and mum for too long.
    Loved ones are just too important to risk having regrets.

    My wife and I both had the Johnson & Johnson. No effects for either of us.

    People slowly coming to the conclusion the worst is over now. Fewer masks everywhere. I haven't worn one for two weeks. Stores it is mostly the employees that are still wearing them and a few customers. Numbers have plummeted in all categories. I haven't even heard of anyone I know getting it in the last two months.



    The left is still screaming we are all going to die because the a-hole right wingers just don't care about peoples lives. It's always fun, mostly the media.

    Their 'reason' for wanting you to wear a mask is to protect them. Ask them if they are wearing a gun to protect you and other people. They will probably go into a rabid frame of mind after that. What it comes down to is your right to choose. Nobody should be forced to do anything they do not want to.

    I have had both Pfizer vax shots with no more than what felt like a bruised shoulder for a couple days. Other than being seventy one years old, I have no co-morbitity issues. My wife is an ICU specific Respiratory Therapist at a local hospital and they currently have eleven vented covid positive patients. The bulk of these very sick people have what they call the "trifecta" which is obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart problems. The critical patients seem to be getting younger and one of the current critically ill people is a middle thirties mother of two. She is otherwise healthy, slender, non-smoker, no diabetes or heart problems. She did not however get the vaccine for reasons unknown. As of today she is still alive but despite every ones continuing best efforts it doesn't look good. Just get the vax; it's safe, and cheap (free) insurance against a potentially deadly virus. Here is a list of some of the problems that many survivors of the Covid virus have been dealing with after surviving the initial infection. Respiratory system: persistent cough, shortness of breath, and low oxygen levels in the blood.
    Nervous system: stroke, headaches, memory problems, and problems with senses of taste and smell.
    Mental health: anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and substance abuse.
    Metabolism: new onset of diabetes, obesity, and high cholesterol.
    Cardiovascular system: acute coronary disease, heart failure, heart palpitations, and irregular heart rhythms.
    Gastrointestinal system: constipation, diarrhea, and acid reflux.
    Kidney: acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease that can, in severe cases, require dialysis.
    Coagulation regulation: blood clots in the legs and lungs.
    Skin: rash and hair loss.
    Musculoskeletal system: joint pain and muscle weakness.
    General health: malaise, fatigue, and anemia.

    The Astra Zeneca here has been responsible for around 8 blood clot cases one lady from near where I live went into intensive care in Perth at one stage they were talking about removing her spleen have not heard much more but the pics of her bruised/clotted arms made it look like a baseball team had flogged the guts out of her with their bats.
    I am going to push my GP for either the Pfizer or the Modena one but that wont be online till August. I'll use my MI that occurred in Sept last year as a lever as I certainly do not want clots when A) There has been some damage to the engine in my chest B) Being on blood thinners a clot is the last thing I need.

    Victoria has locked down as they have the Indian strain there with the potential of 4000 close contacts from a football spectator this is very worrying as a lady who works with my wife was rung by the police to go into 14 days isolation having just got back from Victoria.
    Those that think this is all B/S around the world really need to pull the head from their nether regions and take on board what the Govt's of the day are trying to do to help us I feel for India and see the abject sorrow that is befalling that country of other isolated places like P.N.G and South Africa we do not hear so much about them now.

    Ovidio you are correct get as much quality time with your parents as you can it is precious for peace of mind myself being a tear away and selfish never went back home just stayed in the country with a rare visit home every now and then like for 5 years I never contacted any of my family they never knew where I was.
    Now the things I could have said and done are to late by far and being on the end of a phone being told by your brother dad's gone is about as hollow a feeling as it can get so take the time as in all of the world we are only ever given one set of parents who raised you as best they could with what they had.
    I know sometimes at home when we were all there 4 kids that food was a scarce commodity as dad was TPI our shop really never was a good source of income even though it was open 363 days of the year 7 till 7 with mum also working as a cleaner at nights just so we had something, I learned like we all did to appreciate what you were given when you received it.

    Stay safe people.

    My 2 cents worth on covid and getting the shots, social distancing, masks, etc. People should be allowed to make their own choices and live or die with the good or bad from that. All the things imposed on people broke more than it fixed for something that was/is not even close to as deadly as predicted (wild guessing).
    I see more people not wearing masks even though you can get arrested and the government is threatening to raise the lockdown level. People have had enough.

    I agree. I don't like the way Democracy has been raped everywhere.
    I'm a disciplined person, so I just need to get information and polite requests about what is considered necessary, and I will comply as long as I don't get served crap.
    Most people are not like this, it is said, so some rules are necessary. As long as they are sensible, I can force myself to go along, but when the authorities in charge of the emergency say that the curfew, the prohibition to go out and other things don't bring anything against Covid, they are only for deterrence against people feeling too free or to give the clear impression that the situation is dire (this one was the sports minister in one big region here), well... I really go crazy.
    I see the need for vaccines for those who work with people at risk, fragile and sick or old people, but now they are talking about the forced vaccine also to teenagers.
    People who have exactly 0,000000000% risk of having trouble if they have no other, serious condition.
    That goes too far even for me.
    I keep following the rules I declared one year ago I would be following, and it is perfectly ok like this.
    Mask only in closed places and if other people are there, I keep socialising and seeing friends, just keep a bit of distance, which is also an absolutely normal thing for civilised people, no panic at all.
    From Monday, we'll be in a "White" area here in Friuli, so no more restrictions...allegedly. But I don't despair, cretins are working against our freedom for sure. We'll hear from them on Sunday evening.
    And I'll keep doing as I feel is right. And respectful of the others. That's it.

    The Astra Zeneca seems to have more issues than the other's; or at least more publicity!
    my Mum's stroke was a few weeks after her Astra jab. But I don't think it is being counted as due to the vaccine! I wonder how many more there are like that?
    She was very sick after the jab too; vomitting for 2 days. It really knocked her for six.
    That is the main reason I went for the Pfizer.

    In Franceicon they've opened up the cafe and restaurant terraces last week. We'll see if the figures rise again in Paris. I expect we will see an increase.

    Anyone who has watched the international news and seen whats happening in India should realise how lucky we are to have good health care.
