I'm 76 and wouldn't mind being first in the queue, well after Father Christmas of course. My daughter thinks it's all a hoax, the Missus thinks they'll inject us with an implant so they can keep an eye on what we do and my son thinks it'll result in health damage. As long as I don't have to go to Porton Down for the jab, I'm okay. :cool:

At 70, I was wondering if they could combine the Covid vaccine, with Viagra, not for sex, its to stop me rolling out of bed....I know...I'll get me coat ...TAXI!

Well after surviving all the Crap they pumped into us before Gulf 1 (none of it on my med docs) i dont think another dose of Anti whatever is gonna kill me (famous last words)
Any covid in our bodies is probably getting beaten up by the Gulf War drugs.

My sleeve is already rolled up.

I'm sad and ashamed of us as a society that people are ignorant enough to think that such as that is wise, or in any way to be taken seriously. More to the point, the 'believers' are smug in their certainty of being so much cleverer than the rest of us.

They're not. They're just knobs.

I blame Granby and GWS for my current BMI!

Me too, I spent it in the Falklands and drank my own bodyweight in beer every two days. It's been a struggle ever since to shake off

I will get it when I am offered it but I am a fair way down the list (50 years old, no health conditions and non front line worker). The missus will get it before me so she can be the lab rat for me. I think its great that the anti-vaxxers don't want it as after I have had it and they have died I will have more than enough room to dance on all their graves. Plus I can also wind up the lefty conspiracy theorists about my speshul implant from Uncle Bill gates.
 
What worries me is that the gov passed a bill exempting the manufacturers suppliers and their agents from any legal action.
Why do that if you didn't have doubts?
So if it does go tits up you cannot take anyone to court.

It doesn't do that.

Extent of the protection​

Regulation 345 does not provide complete immunity from civil liability. As Directive 2001/83 requires, regulation 345(4) preserves the application of section 2 of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 (CPA). This means that if a product does not meet the standards set by the Part 1 of the CPA, manufacturers and marketing authorisation holders are not protected from legal action. A product is defective, for the purposes of the CPA, “…if the safety of the product is not such as persons generally are entitled to expect…”, taking all the circumstances into account.

I'll have a glass of whisky for every anti-vaxer that dies or else gets long Covid.

Crank up a distillery for me chaps.

Like me, you're probably insulin resistant. This is like pre-pre diabetes and means we don't handle our carbs as well as we used to.

I take it after a meal you're sleepy and tired?

Most people who're overweight probably are. If you're interested this lass explains it quite well:

 
Yep, no bother. 2 jabs 21 days apart, and I'll be ready to pull the ears off a Gundark. (After 20 pints in the pub, obv.)

"How might you reassure those of us who are concerned?"

Jonas Salk. That is all...
I’m not against it and will have it when it becomes available for my age group with no underlying conditions (so pretty much last). However using the example of a vaccine which took 7 years to develop and test including 3 years of human tests before it was approved as safe, to reassure people about the speed with which this vaccine has been developed and licensed may not work out as well as you expect. Even if it was 70 years ago and technology has advanced hugely.

i expect a 2 meter long syringe to allow for anti-social distancing
 
My wife and I have already had a strain of COVID recently this year, so having acquired a degree of natural immunity I would be reluctant to take it. However, should the penalties (no international travel, domestic travel exemptions etc) out weigh the infinitesimal risk of taking a vaccine then I'd probably just get a jab.

I'm lead to believe that a lot of research has been done on a SARS vaccine the past 15-20 years from previous outbreaks, so it's not been as hashed out as I initially understood.
 
Similar to glasgow_jock I had Covid, back in September and will ride whatever immunity I gained from that and the summer, to see how the side effects go for others...... Next winter, maybe yes. But I am always suspicious of Big Pharma.
