That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Talk of vaccinating all over 50s by the end of March

I heard that, and it's great news, perhaps we will have a summer after all.

If it's true that we're now doing around 300K per day and still increasing, then hopefully we will hit that Government target of 13M(ish) by 15th February. I must admit I didn't think they'd have a hope of getting near to it, due to supply issues and us potentially not being able to organise a piss up in a brewery with regards to the logistics, but it looks like I was wrong, which I'm very glad about.

Beer Gardens in Summer.....here we come 😀

Supply issues....still bothers me

Said it a while, its the only thing that should stop us

If we fail for any other reason, it would be a scandal

 

Anyway, all over 50s by end of march?

Presumably that will be first jab only, but still, end of march plus 3 weeks, takes us til end april

No reason why something very close to a life cant be back on by then

 

I do foresee a modification to some of the priorities coming soon, though. I cant see them not prioritising teachers sometime soon

Battening down the hatches at RBH (and in the community Blondie) :)

A quick comment on the RBH. Lad's mate over the road came off his bike Wednesday evening. Wrist like a balloon.

Didn't want to go to hospital initially, but did eventually. X rayed and break confirmed.

Thursday morning, operated (pins etc), plastered and home mid afternoon. 

All whilst this shit goes on.

Great effort 👏

Mis read.

Still think we'll have restrictions: still a lot of 40+ about.

Won't be 3 weeks. 12 remember. 

Sorry, what i meant was im sure its 3 weeks after the jab for it to give protection

So, worst  case and by then maybe theres more doses available anyway, 3 weeks after first jab, 50 plussers should be much less likely to suffer

You're right, supply will possibly be what makes all this fall over, or stall for a little while. Everytime they interview that bloke from AZ, he seems to be a little more vague with regards to delivery. Still, it is looking like we might be back to some sort of normality for the summer, which is a nice thought.

I realised the other day that 2020 is probably the first year, in at least 30 years, that I've fully spent in the UK, every single day, not even a day trip to France.........I don't want to have to do that again!

I think anywhere north of 10million done by 15th Feb would be ok.

13million would be splendid.

If they've only done 10M by 15th February and not the 13M they keep promising, then whilst still a great effort, questions will need to be asked, and they should be fairly easy to answer.

As of this morning they're still saying the 13M is still on, so I don't see why we would fall massively short, unless they utterly balls it up

This Government seem to do this. Aim for a extremely high target and take the flack if and when it doesn't get there.

There's a school of thought that that's actually more effective than aiming for a more modest target and then missing out on that one. 

Gotta think big!

Supply of the actual vaccine seems to be touch and go based on what I’ve read.

Cant argue with the amount of resource available to get jabs in arms.

Just desperately hoping they nail this

Something in that. Aim for 13 and achieve 12, or aim for 10 and achieve 11?

Obviously, if youre looking to make an impact, you do the easy ones first, perfectly hatural, no criticism from me

But what we are finding now is theres a good number who 'cant get there' and theres still uncertainty of supply

So, as you cant book a clinic until you have vax in hand, its a logistical nightmare as we say  :)

im thinking the superhubs are probably  getting more regular volumes which makes sense for sheer numbers

Aim for 13 all day long. Why should 11 be seen as more of a success than 12 using your example. 
 

if they did 20 certain folk would still complain anyway

Exactly - some of the senior managers in the NHS use exactly the same idea. On record as well.

Not sure it's the right approach day today, but under circumstances like this, maybe?

Same thing happened with testing - and now I think we're around about number 1 in the world per 1000? 

Expect to take some flak early on but get more done in the long run.

I'd agree day to day could be risky.

But nowt wrong with ambition.

I reckon that's what's keeping me relatively enthused about Evatt. Something just says he'll come good.

Over reach I think they call it. 

There's a time and a place for it - but that time and place is probably now!

Plenty of positive news this morning. It sounds like we’re doing 300,000 a day with the resources already in place to do significantly more. If we can get hold of more vaccine then you sense we could be doing 400,000 or even 500,000 a day. Plenty of new vaccination centres joining all the time and we haven’t moved to 24/7. It’s going to be all about supply.
