    There is a lot of knowledge amongst us, I exclude myself.

    The COVID 19 is dominating the news:

    How worried should we be?

    Will this be Spanish flu proportions or just another contained outbreak as SARS and MERS were?

    Oh – and when will we start to see ‘Just in time’ manufacturing suffer?

    Well I had my second jab yesterday morning. Same venue as before and same Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.

    My arm was throbbing and sore as hell through the night. Still sore this morning. I feel pleased that I have now had my second jab.

    Still shielding  though for a little while longer.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Like you Joss I have had my 2nd Jab and I shall continue shielding not least because my wife has another 3 weeks or so before her 2nd Jab.  I usually read the papers on the BBC website but I am going to stop. It’s a bit like politics.  One story and widely differing opinions and predictions. As I mentioned earlier in this thread I will adopt a 4,5 or 6 stage plan, of gradual re-integration whilst regularly keeping up yo date with the latest news from “reliable sources. For the millions who have shielded and indeed those who have followed something akin to this it will not be a matter of just flicking a switch. One of the newspapers predicts a return to normality as soon as June but this is the same newspaper which has predicted heatwaves and left the public dissapointed 9 times out of 10.</p>

    I was going to book manorca for a holiday in October, as a relative left me a little bit of money , enough to cover the holiday anyway, but with the having to pay for tests, and the danger of testing positive and being stuck out there for another ten days, we just cannot afford it, or to be honest the risk of catching any vaccine dodging variants , so instead we’re going to spoil our kids with clothes shopping, spoil my wife, and maybe myself a little

    I am looking forward to a proper meal out, mains and desserts with coffee at our favourite american  restaurant, wont say its name but has a big yellow sign, an upside down W. In all seriousness, anyone booking a holiday is taking a huge risk with the prospect of quarantine, testing positive on arrival departure etc. We will certainly be sticking to the UK again this year.

    Same as me @fwippers , I’m going to go camping in August hopefully, we do ha e cancellation cover, I have a nice new airbeam tent, (saves so many arguments with my wife from putting up frame tents) and easy as anything to put up for her. With the boot on either the qashqui or hopefully the grandland add our massive roof box and we’re all set! We are going with 7 of us , 5 in the car and my older two are catching the train down, I was brought up camping and honestly prefer it over abroad . Just hoping lockdown does ease and we can go

    Hello again, I had both jabs, phizer weeks back, Mrs ajn had her 1st waiting on the 2nd..

    Been shielding right through as advised..

    However we had a week away, West Wales travelled around mainly driving and avoiding crowds, short strolls along wide beeches, lots of through the window scenery..

    Must admit the vaccine has given a bit more confidence for us..

    just had the call for my 2nd jab on the 8th of may.

    still not been anywhere anyway and wont be taking any chances even after the 8th.

    some neighbours near me are setting up gazeboes for a family party when restrictions end.

    shes got a voice like a foghorn so the other day when out gardening i got all the gory details as to which gazebo is to go where and whos coming and whos a pain and who they have to keep away from who.

    i think it was her poor neighbour who was being ordered about putting up these gazeboes. i reckon shes going to be dispointed if we get a windy day between now and then lol.

    So does this mean that you are no longer scared of little pricks then.💉

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>A cautious approach is the best way forward. Over 30 years ago we purchased a couple of smoke detectors to the astonishment of friends and family. A few months later a faulty fridge freezer started a fire which caused tens of thousands pounds of damage but the detectors woke me up and saved all our lives. I adopt a similar ” belt and braces” approach to  Covid.</p>

    Just stumbled across this global vaccine tracker. India have issued 147 million vaccines. Thank goodness.

    Big decision coming up on overseas travel. Around 90%+ of the comments and articles suggest current restrictions should continue to negate the risk of importing a new variant/s. As someone who doesn’t travel overseas and therefore no vested interest I am with the 90%+, albeit the beaches here will be busier.
