I see the brits are not going to administer the booster until the end of January, why are we being told to get the booster now, are we being used as guinea pigs or is Boris waiting on a better booster to be developed which will be effective against this mutation.
Its being a thing that has worried me a bit throughout this pandemic is that these vaccinations in the north have been rolled out quicker than England Scotland or Wales, usually we are last on the list.
Not anti-vax by the way.

Trust your intuition, it's amazing how good a subliminal judge it is.

Regardless of which side your on ... I reckon this is worth 30 minutes of anyones time even if its just to test their own current beliefs about this whole hashter (including how they perceive 'the other side')

Quote
Paul Kingsnorth sees the vaccine wars as symptomatic of a bigger division between two fundamentally different world views: he calls them “thesis” and “antithesis.” When it comes to Covid, “thesis” is the establishment viewpoint: that lockdowns are needed to contain the virus, masks work, vaccines are safe, and people who question them are wrongheaded or worse. When Covid-19 first struck, Kingsnorth took the “thesis” viewpoint.

But over the last few months, his perspective changed. As he  in today’s UnHerd, the crystallising moment arrived when he woke up to the news that the Austrian government had ‘interned an entire third of the population’. This move, he writes, sent a ‘chill down my spine’.

The “antithesis” view can be summed up as: lockdowns are not needed, masks do not work, the safety and efficacy of the vaccines are being oversold, vaccine passports will not only fail but further segregate society, and in the near future we can expect Giradian scapegoating of the unvaccinated. In other words, we are positioned on the precipice of a slippery slope that leads towards increasingly draconian biopolitical control measures, the grip of which is unlikely to release even once the pandemic is over.

In a conversation with Freddie Sayers on this week’s UnHerdTV, he explains this division and the bigger epistemological divides it reveals. “People are arguing about vaccines,” he says, “but they’re really under the surface arguing about what kind of person you are if you have taken these things, whether you’re a good or a bad person, or clean or unclean one”.

In Kingsnorth’s view, each of us has a line that cannot be crossed. And his has now been reached.

Thanks for posting that up. He was able to articulate his thoughts, ideas and arguments in a way i could never do.

Did you even listen to it? 
    Anyway i suppose masking up our kids in primary school will be a real success.
    I suppose those children that get vaccinated might be allowed to take them off. That would be a quare incentive.

There’s the problem right there. Eddie from down the road that hasn’t a clue what day of the week it is, should follow his intuition rather than the advise of medical experts the world over. That’s the logic your up against.

Kids in NYC have been masked since they started back in the classroom over a year ago. I was surprised to learn recently that it was only now being considered in Ireland.

My two have got their initial jabs, but I doubt if the city will remove the mask requirement once they complete the vaccinations. Its hard enough getting kids to wear them properly without having half the class allowed to go without them.

Schools are a disaster up North at the minute it's rattling through kids and teachers like wildfire and there are no subs then to cover the teachers that are off for testing or who have caught it.

I'm not a fan of a circuit breaker really but given how bad it is in our local area it mightn't be a bad idea to give the kids an extra week off to stop the spread!

The rules or the interpretation of the rules is off when it comes to this.

If there is Covid at home the kid can still come to school until such times as they test positive. How is that not going to do anything other than encourage the spread.

That's not true up North anyway . . .

Quote
Young people (aged five to 17) who are not fully vaccinated and are identified as a close contacts should self-isolate and book a PCR test as soon as possible.

If the PCR test is negative, they can end their self-isolation and should arrange to take another PCR test eight days after the last known contact.

If the young person who is a close contact develops symptoms at any time they should immediately self-isolate and book a PCR test, even if the earlier PCR tests were negative.

I know someone who's children got it, had stay at home but she could still attend work as long as her tests every few days or whatever the recommended test period is, stayed clear.

That is the rule if you're vaccinated and someone in the house has it you don't have to isolate unless you get a positive test but you still have to get tested day 2 and day 8!

I know a few couples where one got it and the other didn't. Also our one year old got it and neither me nor my wife got it from him.

Yeah the day 2 and day 8 thing is a bit mad.
