Every day choices of people around us might and do impact our lives -- this is the norm of living in any society. I don't think "might impact my life" is a good argument against the relaxation of the restrictions. Maybe the decision should be based on the risk vs benefit assessment, and not your personal risk and benefit but the community as a whole.

Of course. But even based on population-level considerations, I think they're shooting themselves in the foot (opening up ~three months before everyone who wants it is projected to have the first dose of the vaccine, openings being relatively modest from the "helping economy" perspective, risking many in the working population being affected by long covid --> not good for the community as a whole, nor for business). The end of June/beginning of July seem a much better time for these openings.

The vaccination itself works much longer but leaves your body via a 5G stream. Research has proved though that this doesn't happen if you wrap tin foil around your head. The pharma industry just doesn't want you to know this.
Tin foil around your face is not recommended though and the use of the face mask is required as the scientifically proofed equivalent.

Even I think that is too long - they should open things up once the at-risk population has a chance to be vaccinated.

Can you keep this leak in check by using a 5G handy? And if so, do you need to chat to someone all day or is it enough to just have it in your pocket?

Tin foil is okay but do refrain from clingfilm.

BE PREPARED FOR A BOOSTER DOSE in 12 months (The Big Pharma has it all
set up with co-operation from Dr. Fauci !)

Pfizer CEO says third Covid vaccine dose likely needed within 12 months
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said people will "likely" need a booster dose of a Covid-19 vaccine within 12 months of getting fully vaccinated.
www.msn.com"
Well, I was able to format an MS Word table much more quickly than usual this morning, so it's already working. Thank you, Bill Gates. Hopefully, the booster shot will allow me to have Outlook meeting requests appear in the dreams of those who have failed to respond after 24 hours. My phone reception is also much better, the 5G chip is doing its thing.

Do try this line of argument next time a policeman stops you for speeding.

You want CHF 9,000 for your second-hand motorbike. I offer you CHF 3,000. You accept with alacrity, as my offer is approximately the same as your asking price.

Let me know when your Ducati is on the market, please.

Re: Coronavirus

I'm sitting in the "recovery area" of the vaccination centre in Lausen, BL—a huge sport hall converted to supply eight check-in desks (of which only six were staffed) and 29 vaccination booths (five not in use). Surreally, a large TV is showing a Laurel and Hardy movie in glorious black & white.

I can't see anyone who appears to be a doctor; just admin people and a nurse (?) in each booth to deliver the shots, plus some slightly stern-looking women in fluorescent yellow shirts overseeing the recovery area.

Interestingly, my vaccine was Moderna. This centre uses only the Moderna vaccine.

The whole process was very quick and efficient. My second jab will be in four weeks.

Re: Coronavirus

My 55 year old French neighbour went to her GP yesterday to get vaccinated. Her GP, who was at school with me when we were kids (and therefore should be retired by now!) said 'you know I don't agree with the vaccine' - neighbour was shocked, and told him she was not interested in his views- and to get her 'done'.

Re: Coronavirus

Lessons from Germany, the big jump in daily vaccinations from ~300K to 700+K was because they started distributing vaccines through GPs, family docs, local clinics. Over 3 million vaccines on the 5-12 April week.



The mass vaccination centers are not a failure but booking problems, and the lack of data on who to vaccine (yaaaay, privacy!) slow does the mass vax centers. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-h...-idUSKBN2BV1US

I registered online on 21 March, received my vaccination dates on 8 April, had my first vaccination today, and the second will be on 14 May.

My husband had positive impression from the organization of the process in Zurich Messe. He said that one medical person vaccinated someone every 2-3 minutes and there were many vaccination boxes like that.

Booking was also very easy. Would be better of course to be able to have a general overview of the available appointments through all the centers instead of clicking each center individually to find out the earliest slot, but that is really a minor remark. When he booked his appointment the available slots in different centers were in 2-4 weeks.

I thought it was well known that neither vaccination nor coronavirus infection would give you the lifelong immunity, so the repeated vaccinations might be necessary. What does this have to do with the evil Big Pharma
