Well, she is 66, so if their policy is Pfizer for the over 65's it makes sense (even if the policy doesn't).
Meanwhile in Germany...Just flicked France24 on and GPs in France can now give the vaccine. They had a GP on who went to the chemist to collect his one vial of the Oxford vaccine to give to people in the age range of 50 - 64 with health conditions. He is allowed one vial a week!
I wanted to bang my head against the wall after watching that video.
I so glad that the anti-vax movement here in the uk seems to be slowly dying off.
Not only are more and more people willing to get it but as we move down the age groups people seem even MORE eager. Possibly from FOMO (fear of missing out), when your GP calls and you have to decide then and there apparently it's pushing more people to just say yes!
Very strange of her
I honestly don't understand what's going on here. She's far from stupid. She has a doctorate in quantum chemistry!
Surely she must understand, even better than Macron, that this will just undermine Germany's vaccination efforts.
At every step of the way the uk government has stated that the vaccines are safe and effective. We're just getting on with the job of vaccinating as many people as we can as quickly as we can with whatever vaccine we have that has been certified safe and effective.
We now have around 86% of our population willing to get vaccinated!!
Even the over 20s are willing to have it at a rate of over 80%!!
More than three quarters of people in the UK now say they are ’very likely’ to have the vaccine – up from 50% among the same group of survey respondents five months ago –according to a two-wave Oxford University survey published today.www.ox.ac.uk
It doesn't appear that's what she actually said. Try this:Very strange of her
Bang on. I‘m still trying to figure out why different vaccines that introduce similar antigens into anyone’s immune system would be differently effective because of age.I see that they're still not using it on those over 75 though. They can't admit they're wrong. If they're concerned about data for the over 55s in the original trial, then there's no real data for those 65-75 either. And the more recent data shows it's effective for all age groups, not just those under 75.
They're unnecessarily complicating their roll out. Any vaccine, for any age over 18 followed up by a second dose of the same vaccine. None of this letting people choose their vaccine nonsense.
There aren't many areas where people should be looking at the UK's virus response and say 'let's follow them'. But the vaccine roll out is one of them.
