I see the BBC have stated NI have the lowest % vaccinated in GB . could this be due the fact that Ni has a lower number of qualify persons as a % of the total population ie at the average age of the population of NI is lower than the rest of GB. some statistics are bullish-t and therefore worthless.
Now is the time to start vaccinating the social mixing morons. Ie the households of 4 or more persons over the age of 15 .

of course they have started --anyone who is vulnerable and their carers --(do toe-gags and parents qualify)
Within this carapace of skepticism there lives an optimist

On the other hand we probably have the highest percentage of vulnerable adults, if the no. DLA claimants are anything to go by. :lol:

Some of it is probably down to a rural population. Scotland is lower than England too.

The vaccination rollout has been an excellent operation thus far. All parts of the UK are on track. There are stato nerds on twitter obsessing over minimal differences. It's a non issue. Sadly the ROI are lagging behind which will be an issue for us however.

I can see real issue developing should opening up diverge significantly between North and South. Given the reports coming out today which support the extended one dose roll out pressure should mount in ROI to follow suit. I'll also expect to see calls fo the psni to turn back southern holiday makers come July from the usual suspects if things continue as is.

It would be wise to assist the Mexicans in providing some additional vaccines. There is no point hogging surplus doses (if it comes to that) whilst new variants begin to develop in other countries. Particularly our neighbours and kin downstairs.

I thought Brussels had told them that they couldn't accept it and the AZ vaccine isn't effective you know.

The EMA recommended clinical use weeks ago.
