The roll-out of the wonderful Covid-19 vaccine is turning into a fiasco as vaccination hubs suffer from a catalog of failures with:-
The IT program where everything is recorded crashed due to an “infrastructure issue” due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’”. Other issues highlighted by vaccine hubs included lack of training in the software. Some vaccine hubs have no barcode scanners to enter who’s had the first dose on the system.
UK Gov and computerized anything?
A well known embarrassment is that one.
Some surgeries reported they have not yet received the fridges to preserve the jab. A GP reported “We were also told the vaccine would last for five days outside the ultra-low temperatures, and now we’re told it lasts three-and-a-half days. And commented “To be honest, nothing seems ready, and we’re seriously talking about taking the information with pen and paper.”
UK Gov and logistics, supply, and other promises?
Yet another well known embarrassment.
A doctor at Oxford University Hospital denounced that “hundreds of people” who were not on the priority list have managed to secure an appointment. How? Someone leaked the access code to make appointments.
Computer security issues or leaking of ‘sensitive information’.
That’s this government’s, and other official bodies, stock-in-trade, if not trademark.
Questions are being raised about its effectiveness when faced with new variants of the virus. The Funny thing about it, apart from the usual B.S. about that being false news, the Health Minister isn’t saying a thing about it, scores of health ex-spurts and, “we’ll agree with anything” sycophant MP’s, are also keeping their collective heads down. Probably because of danger of being associated with the Health Secretary, Muppet (promise everything, deliver little) Matt Hancock.
It’s known that the mink variant is different from the other umpteen different strains. Fears are that it is more virulent than the patient one version, and scuttlebutt on social media and others alternative media sites has it that NONE of the current vaccines can counter it.
Are they right? Who really knows, until it happens.
Having said that, if Muppet man Hancock said that wasn’t true, or even said ‘good morning’ to me, I’d check my watch AND look up into the sky to check it wasn’t raining! That’s before I clobbered him for being a loathsome slug.
The National Audit Office (NAO) said the Government would spend up to £11.7 billion on purchasing and manufacturing Covid-19 jabs for the UK, deploying them in England and helping global efforts to find a vaccine.
We give money away to help global efforts to find a vaccine?
Why aren’t we using every (£) pound we have to sort out our country first?
And, there is something else to note.
Each vaccine contract contains a form of indemnity protection for the pharmaceutical companies in case there’s any legal action from adverse effects after people have the jab.
Sounds to me like, “If you turn into a zombie, it’s not our fault!”
A spokesperson for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said: “As the report rightly notes, we have worked at a pace and scale never been done before to ensure the British public receive a vaccine that meets strict safety standards as quickly as possible”.
Mm. Maybe he forgot to add, ‘Unless you turn into a zombie, which won’t be our fault’, probably yours, for rushing into getting a vaccine we said was safe”.
Right now, with the common knowledge going around our little town that the ONLY doctors surgery will not be distributing the vaccine, and people we talk to (and that’s a hell of a lot of 2 m separation chats) aren’t so much worried, but resigned to one possible fate, catching Covid-19.
Personally, being in Tranch 5 (or maybe 6), we’ve got time to prepare for any zombie action.
Why am I going on about zombies the whole time?
- The drug was hailed as being 95% efficient. It’s not.
- They aren’t even sure how long it will protect you!
- Or even sure about what effects it’ll have in the long term.
- New mutations of the virus are occurring all the time, and it’s looking like the vaccine may not be good enough to counter them.
- The roll-out is a shambles. (Funny enough, the UK Gov is organizing it).
- I read that the initial testing didn’t include large numbers of the first group (over 85 yrs young). So there isn’t a lot of evidence of what it would do to them.
- The ‘get out of paying for monumental failure of the vaccine’ clauses by the makers are EXTREMELY worrying.
- Have I mentioned in the past that ANYTHING the UKGov arranges regarding health issues always gets paid for with someone’s life?
So what next? I’m glad you asked.
I wrote to our MP to ask what the score was about getting vaccinated seeing as though our doctors surgery wasn’t going to do it. What I got back was from one of <HER> weenies quoting the official line including that our local doctors WAS GOING TO dole out the vaccine.
I reckon it goes like this.
Ask 99 politicians a question and, in most circumstances, you’ll get 101 different answers. Ask local people what they know, and you’ll get rumor, speculation, ‘someone said’ aka hearsay, but intermingled in all that will be people who know the truth. Guess what. Almost everyone is singing the same tune, and its common knowledge in many that our only doctors’ will not be taking part in the role out.
So I reckon the official weenie either:
- Doesn’t know what the hell is going on,
- Is being fed false information on the fly,
- Toeing some sort of official party line,
- Or is just lying.
Personally I think option three is the most likely reason.
What next? We sit and wait.
How long for?
Yeah, that’s the question we all want answered.
