    :grinning: I think they're just gambling that schools and the police will hold up. If not, they can easily justify a week of priority vaccination and the results will be seen several weeks after that. I'm not saying it is the best strategy, but it is the simplest and hardest to argue against.

    This debate is the reason they're going with age. It is very hard to rank people or professions. Given we know that economic downturns cause deaths, we should really be protecting the bankers first.

    I do agree with lots of this but it does sound chippy to say "scientists decided ... it wasn't even worth thinking about them until March". It's just prioritisation, that doesn't equal no thought. The opposite, in fact. On another topic, the brexit agitators wanting full reopening ASAP are...

    The "good days" of vaccination rates that high have been few and far between but should start to come back (and be surpassed) in the next few weeks. There are two points being discussed here: greater risk in some groups, and prioritisation. I don't think it is fair to say that scientists and...

    Not sure how to read your reply in the context of my post which highlights scientists presenting the serology data showing 12% seropositivity in key workers (teachers and police), contrasting with 8% in the rest. That's 50% higher, and likely down to the working conditions you describe. That...

    Interesting thread about key workers exposure and whether the UK vaccination strategy is correct. Of school/nursery staff, 12% were positive compared to non-key workers (8%). The confidence intervals (uncertainty around estimates) did not overlap suggesting these differences are statistically...

    Interesting development.. Original tweet /link from the Times says she REFUSES the vaccine but if you click on it you find that they have subsequently changed the title! It now it says, "Angela Merkel won’t get AstraZeneca Covid vaccine as 1.4m doses left unused" How peculiar! They could of...

    If anyone wants to pm me a decent link I'll... call the police, of course.

    But you do agree that calling the 20% reduction in tax to HMRC a brexit benefit is utterly meaningless brexit-wash if they retain taxation that they could have removed at any time?

    Ha. See you in the pub so we can have a chat about teachers? And I mean in the pub. The kids will have to sit outside.

    It is a multifaceted problem that needs to be solved urgently. You are saying it's all Merkel's fault, which is a tedious joke. Is she being anti-British by saying it is reliable, safe and effective? You are saying that her not taking it is a political move. You are simply wrong.

    I can't be arsed with this anymore. You are attributing blame unnecessarily because you want to dig at one of the EU's leaders, as you have so often, who knows why. She was asked if he would take it and she stated the bare fact that she isn't in the group for which it has been recommended so...

    “AstraZeneca is a reliable vaccine, effective and safe, approved by the European Medicines Agency and recommended in Germany up to the age of 65 years,” said Ms Merkel. “All the authorities tell us that this vaccine can be trusted. As long as vaccines are as scarce as they are now, you cannot...

    Has she not recommended it for those 64 year olds?

    Maybe by Macron and I have been critical of that, but you still haven't shown me anything about Merkel. As I understand it, she cannot take it.

    Feco and Paz have told you their personal issues. I've told you that my institution / researchers are having to pay a lot more for their visas as a result of Brexit (in one case despite coming from Japan). Many of us have paid more for goods shipped from the EU and/or not been able to order...
