Of course. Just because you've had a vaccine (assuming it does actually work) doesn't mean you can't carry and pass on the virus. It's not a panacea, but then it was never going to be. It's a shame that the government decided to put all their chips on it. People are going to end up very disappointed.Chat yesterday that even if you have had the Vax, if you come into contact with someone who tests positive you will still need to self isolate.
If that is the case then I do not see this vaccination as the great liberator. I still don't see what the overriding problem is if the virus does pass from one to another if the vulnerable as well as increasing numbers of the general pop have been vacccinated. And I know no vaccine is 100%, so there will be some risk.
Vast numbers should not get ill at once so the NHS should be able to cope with treating the significantly less numbers that do need hospital treatment.
Meanwhile the Daily Mail continues to publish articles following the lorries (allegedly carrying the vaccines) every move. Looks like they're nearly on the M25 now.
1 in 7! Well should be a bit quicker to get round people that want it.
If people don't want to take it, fine. As long as the rest of us aren't stuck in some sort of endless purgatory where we still have to 'protect the NHS' because 80% of the population don't take it
And I still haven't heard anything about whether it is necessary to Vax people who have had it.
I think it'd be more than 1 in 7, but I definitely won't be taking one for at least 6 months after I see a key politician here take one live on TV. As long as most of the vulnerable take one, then I guess we can start looking towards the light at the end of the tunnel.
