    Really? The Caravan Parks were closed from March 24th. On the 22nd anyone on the Holker Site were told they had to clear off by 23rd latest.
    They didn't reopen until around June/July.

    This, I think is interesting.

    This afternoon my in-laws went for their second Covid Jab having had the first one on 16th of December. They attended at the same place, a hub set up to inoculate residents served by 10 or 12 GP's surgery's in that area.

    At the first visit they said it was very busy and everyone was given the second appointment at that time. However, today it was less than half as busy and they were told that lots of people had not been turning up which means that, as it was the Pfizer/Biontec one, many will have been wasted.

    I wonder why people haven't been turning up?
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Not interesting, just massively concerning. Why on earth would people not turn up for a booster?
    Has everyone got totally stupid all of a sudden?

    Wasn't the government proposal to prioritise people having the first dose delaying the second by up to 12 weeks despite this not being tested fully for the Pfizer vaccine. Perhaps the messaging has been less than clear.

    If you get an appointment from a doctor/hospital, you turn up unless you're specifically told it has been cancelled.

    Messages may well have been unclear, but I think pure stupidity is trumping it here...

    I was a bit shocked when I heard about this around a week ago.

    From what I have heard and read the first jab gives a person a partial immunity - say 70% and the 2nd tops it up to 90-95%.
    A decision has been made to prioritise getting as many of the top level vulnerable to 70% as quick as possible and I believe other countries are planning similar.

    It's on the basis that say having 1,000,000 at 70% is better than having 500,000 at 90% and 500,000 at 0%.

    I don't think we have anyone on here qualified to critique it - although Oracle maybe could have advised what his wife thought of the policy had he still been on the forum.
