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?
to be safe, I would go for a Facebook live stream.

I consider anything less than 100-200% higher to be approximately the same.

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

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
mmmm. money?

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.
So if its c. 2 to 3 weeks in advance, we should be expecting appointments for unprioritized to be issued imminently and for the next 5 or 6 weeks, at least in AG which says the priority groups will be done in April and the unprioritized will be done in May and early June.

Given they said that the unprioritized will be done in order of registration, and I did mine within half an hour of registration opening (a day earlier than advertised on the Sunday), I really hope I get notification of my appointment in the next week or so for an appointment in early May. Especially since I put down every vaccination site in the Kanton.

The vaccination itself works much longer but leaves your body via a 5G stream.

Re: Coronavirus

I just received Pfizer at the main hospital in Malta, next dose in 3 weeks. I registered 5 days ago. My wife will get her second Moderna dose on Monday.
I think AZ is being reserved for the locals

Canton Vaud is accepting 50+ without any restrictions, so anybody residing in the canton & within that age group can sign up.

Re: Coronavirus

Got my first one today. Didn't seem to be very busy, only 2 admin windows being used and about 3 people doing the vaccinations. Maybe because it was lunchtime. Was quick though; arrived early and I had my jab 5 minutes before my appointment time.
