What to expect after your COVID-19 vaccination - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

 

Can you go back to normal activities after having your vaccine?

You should be able to resume activities that are normal for you as long as you feel well. If your arm is particularly sore, you may find heavy lifting difficult. If you feel unwell or very tired you should rest and avoid operating machinery or driving.

You should avoid getting pregnant for 2 months after vaccination.

Interesting, kind of gives weight to a theory I've had for a while that masking might stay mandatory only for people who haven't had it. As in scan your Covi-pass app at the door to go in maskless, otherwise get your face nappy on. Slightly less direct than banning activities altogether but just as sinister, making sure all the "anti-vaxxers" are pariahs and all the virtuous model citezens can spit on them/kick them/whatever. Just like the yellow stars in Nazi Germany.

So I’ve just seen the headlines about “worrying rise” in the south

 

and mass testing

 

whats the narrative to testing all the secondary school kids

 

i presume it’s voluntary?

 

Doubt it's voluntary. Just a simple way of massively beefing up the casedemic for a demographic who have more chance of dying of old age than the 'deadly virus'. Pathetic.

The British Medical Journal is one of the oldest general medical journals, dating back to

1840.

 

For them to publish this article is extraordinary, but welcomed.

 

Conflicts of interest among the UK government’s covid-19 advisers

 

Excerpts

 

Disclosure denied

The BMJ asked the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), which announced the Vaccine Taskforce, to confirm that Bell had reported his “long list” of financial interests. We also asked to see any forms Bell had filled in as evidence. Contradicting its own press release which listed Bell as a taskforce member, a BEIS spokesperson told The BMJ, “Sir John Bell is a member of the expert advisory group to the Vaccine Taskforce, rather than a member of the taskforce itself.”

 

The spokesperson added that the expert advisory group is not involved in commercial decision making, and that those involved must declare their conflicts of interest. The spokesperson did not respond to The BMJ’s request for copies of Bell’s declarations.

 

The BMJ also approached Oxford University, Bell’s employer, to ask for documents that confirm he had disclosed his “long list” of financial interests. Stephen Rouse, Oxford University’s head of communications, responded, “Professor Sir John Bell has always declared his financial interests and board membership at Roche, in accordance with the university’s conflict of interest policy for all staff.”

 

Oxford did not respond to The BMJ’s repeated request to see evidence of this disclosure. The BMJ is now seeking the financial disclosure form of John Bell through a freedom of information request to Oxford.

It's incredibly scary isn't it. In the shopping centre where I live, there are benches that are taped off to prevent people sitting down. It really is pathetic, and people just go along with it as if this is what normal life will be like now. It feels like we're living in some strange dystopian world. I really do feel as though I am in a film set in the year 3000.  

 

That's exactly what it's like: as though we're in some dystopian story that's playing out. The upshot is that in dystopian drama the audience invariably roots for the rebels. I guess that makes us the heroes of this story :)

Guys a wanker. ✊✊ Never had the courage of his convictions and his "common sense man of the people pint on his head saga" has always been blatantly obvious to anyone with any self awareness. Still he toned down his act a bit to be accepted in the mainstream only to get sacked by GlOBAL owned LBC. 

 

As for hancock pretending to cry yesterday if it was up to me i would give that slimey contenptable little scummy cowardly pychopath something to cry about. Horrible little man just like the majority of faces that are pumped out at us through the public sphere. Cowardly spineless retards. That goes for most of the public too.

BREAKING: Pupils in worst-hit areas of London, Essex and Kent to get COVID tests

I urge people to take their children out of school NOW, rather than be tested. Bastards.

 

"May I congratulate Mr Hancock on getting through this news conference without crying."

Big decisions around COVID-19 and children have been heavy on politics and short on science. New large-scale studies are changing that.

 

PUBLISHED December 10, 2020

 

"National Geographic was given exclusive access to the results from an Icelandic study that provides definitive evidence of how much children contribute to coronavirus spread. Researchers with the nation’s Directorate of Health and deCODE genetics, a human-genomic company in Reykjavik, monitored every adult and child in the country who was quarantined after potentially being exposed this spring, using contact tracing and genetic sequencing to trace links between various outbreak clusters. This 40,000-person study found that children under 15 were about half as likely as adults to be infected, and only half as likely as adults to transmit the virus to others. Almost all the coronavirus transmissions to children came from adults."

Klodian Rasha was killed early on Tuesday in what Albanian police described as an excessive use of force by an officer during an overnight curfew introduced to control the spread of Covid-19 cases. Chanting 'We want justice!', protesters set fire to a Christmas tree outside the interior ministry and tried to force their way into the ministry and the government complex.
