How is she now? 

 

Had my booster a few weeks ago and like the previous two had no side effects at all bar a soreish arm for a day or two. My booster was the Pfizer and my first 2 were the AZ. Strange the effects it has on different people.  

She’s a bit better today but fuck be it had an effect. The microchip must be bigger in this dose.

I was hoping they might be a bit more creative, go with Nolan sisters or something.

Or follow Billy Connolly's suggestion, everybody could go down with a bad attack of the Bamber Gascoigne's!

Gibraltar is a strange one. The official vaccine data seems to indicate that the amount of two dosed vaccinated people (just shy of 40k) exceeds the actual population of Gibraltar (just shy of 34k).

 

I'm no expert and might be missing something (if so, I'd genuinely like to know what?) but these figures would suggest that literally their whole population has been fully vaccinated. But, over the past 3 days, there have been 83 new infections recorded in Gibraltar. These are figures for Gibraltan residents. Of those 83 infections, 41 were unvaccinated. The infection figures are all available on the link below. And, for a greater date range than just the past 3 days, the daily figures are showing a more than negligible proportion of the new infections being unvaccinated people. In some of the daily classes data, the unvaccinated new infections exceed those who were vaccinated. 

 

It seems strange that there is such a high amount of unvaccinated people showing up in the daily infection figures if we've been led to believe for a few weeks now that literally everyone in Gibraltar was vaccinated? 

 

Dodgy figures? I'm/others misinterpreting them? Lots of Gibraltan residents showing up in the vaccine figures who were actually unvaccinated when contracting the virus?

They just change the definition of unvaccinated to include people who've had two jabs but not the booster.

 

The same sleight of hand is used here to give the impression that most people in hospital are unvaccinated.

Okay. No source then. 

 

Deductive logic - it's the only thing that would account for such a large discrepancy in the figures.  Unless you can think of something else. 

 

You can see it reflected in policy, too, e.g. only those who have received their booster will be considered "fully vaccinated" for the purposes of international travel.

The figures for vaccinations also include Spanish commuters who've had the vaccine administered in Gibraltar, I'm pretty sure there will be unvaccinated adult residents too. Also, the figures reported for new cases seem to be predominantly in the younger age groups who aren't eligible for the vaccine yet- e.g.

What’s your opinion on the deaths to transmission rate dropping dramatically since the introduction of the vaccines ?

Mrs HL has just had her booster, Pfizer after two jabs of Astra Zenica. No sign of any reaction or side effect as yet, she's still the same narky cow as always.

Sneer at her and call her a sheeple, tell her she’s affecting your freedoms and all that absolute fucking rubbish the thick selfish twats come out with. See if she’s still narky

She's still narky mate. Anybody would think I enjoyed having bad guts and stinking the place out.

Farting in the car, a lot, probably didn't help mind.

Yeah, I saw his video. There was a bit of "oh fuck is he a loon now?" in the comments. 

 

I don't think he was really "pushing" any one theory, although I could be wrong. 

I don't think he made any claims. Just stated some facts and outlined some anomalies which we cannot currently explain. It's very odd.

 

This new variant sounds like it could be a godsend. I hope we really do have an incredibly contagious but very mild version of the virus. Fingers crossed!

Yeah, that would ace. It either fucks off or just becomes another common cold.

Im over in the UK again on the 10th, dont do anything stupid now. 

You'll need a PCR test now. Before (think you can get it same day if you want to) day two, then isolation until you get your negative result.

I think the vaccines have saved lives, especially for people 65+ and those in at risk categories.  If I was ten/twenty years older, I'd definitely have it.

 

For younger people, I don't think the risk/benefit ratio is clear because the risks haven't been properly quantified.

I swear I read somewhere a few months ago that by April 2022’ it’ll be no more deadly than a common cold.  Here’s hoping

It would be more honest to call them "ineligible" rather than unvaccinated. Same sort of sleight of hand as I was on about.

 

Interesting that out of the remainder, almost all are vaccinated. I thought the vaccine was supposed to help prevent transmission.

No, it reduces transmission. Given that the vast majority of people are vaccinated there, then you're going to see more cases in vaccinated people than unvaccinated.

 

There's been 1 Covid-related death in Gibraltar in the last 3 months. The vaccines work.
