From what I have been told by the main Dr on my covid trial. Pfizer and Oxford vaccine use code from covid to produce vaccine in a lab, this is then injected into you. The Novovax trial I am on uses old technology where you are are injected with the code and antibodies are then produced in the body. None of these vaccines inject you with any live virus. After my second jab I felt rough for 24 hours (didn't feel anything after 1st jab), other than that I have had no side effects.

Another question. Excuse my ignorance.
If you were to get the vaccination..flu or covid. Then catch either the flu virus or covid virus which could still happen after being vaccinated. How long are you going to be asymptomatic before the virus is gone from your body. That is if you are going to be asymptomatic, which I assume you will be until the virus has been dealt with by your bodies immune system?

Good question JLK

I presume it would still be the same as it is now, however the difference being (I presume) is that you won't have the symptoms as such, shouldn't have the need to self isolate, and could in theory if you passed it on only the (assumed) 5% that the vaccine hasn't work on, and those that chose not to have the vaccine would have any issues from it.

As others have said, if having the jab means I can travel then bring it on. I wonder if it will be an annual jab, or permanent like yellow fever

Nearly 70 million people by June would be impressive, I would think that having all vaccinated by next xmas would be more realistic

Let’s just get on with it. No moaning,just let them in charge do it their way.
Don’t want to hear that certain people should get it before others.
Don’t want to hear some in care home can’t get it because they can’t get to a facility or the facility can’t get to them with the minus 70 problems?
Just let them in charge do it their way and hopefully all them in the top 3/4 groups are sorted ASAP.
Then other vaccine be around that dont need the -70 so can be given to all that missed out.
The future is looking brighter. Stop the negativity
Or stop watching MSM

One thing that worries me is the fact that the government has indemnified big pharma against legal action from people who have been adversely affected by the vaccine. To me, that says a) adverse effects are a real possibility. and b) big pharma are very scared of another 'Thalidomide' type disaster blowing up in their faces.
People forget Thalidomide was 60 years ago ,i think they have learnt a lot since then . I will have the covid injection when offered ,when ever that is . I hope and pray they have got it right , il take my chance . Im thinking positive ,my glass is half full

I had a FFS moment the other night when all this good news was being rolled out and the ITV news team interviewed a person they'd obviously found whilst they had nothing else to do who's life would be impacted dramatically and lead to all sorts of whoas and disasters because they weren't first in line for the vaccine that they should have had the day before it was announced - expect more of the same to follow :(

Phizer vaccine be not much good in 3rd world countries with the -70 and a lot harder? to transport and keep.
In fact Phizer other main product doesn’t seem to be needed in them countries as well.

Images from Public Health England (PHE), taken at a secure location, show specialist Covid-19 vaccine freezers lined up.
A picture taken of the interior of one of the freezers shows stacks of trays which will hold the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine doses.
PHE said it has secured 58 specialised Twin Guard ultra-low temperature freezers which provide sufficient storage for approximately five million doses of potential Covid-19 vaccines which require ultra-low temperature storage.
The fridges, which are not portable, each hold around 86,000 doses.



The distribution of vaccine across the UK is being undertaken by Public Health England and the NHS in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland through systems specially adapted from those used for the national immunisation programmes.
NHS England said NHS staff were working through the weekend to prepare for the launch of the programme.
There are 50 hubs in the first wave in England, with more hospitals starting to vaccinate over the coming weeks and months as the programme ramps up.
