I think on a music festival message board it’s a legitimate question to ask. It doesn’t suggest the OP doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Of course there are much bigger things to be worrie

I can’t get the following thought out of my head and it’s making the old bottom lip wobble: Wednesday evening at the 2021 festival, the sun has been out all day but temperature not stifling, perf

Howdy folks...sorry I'm late to the party! Was in a meeting and could see notifications coming up! So, looks very promising indeed. The vaccinated group not only didn't develop severe disease, bu

Vaccine approval is just weeks away, keep the faith 💪🏻💪🏻

Time to drag out the resale spreadsheet again ..... that might be the next mission .... although id be so happy on everyone else's behalf that a festival might take place ... me being there might be the cherry on the top of the 3 tiered cake

Good to see some positivity coming through on this thread today not just from me ..... like I said lets hope the vaccine makes some kind of difference very soon and we limit the damage of this virus to life  , livelihoods and mental health above everything else .... Might be time for another  poll once the vaccine arrives and we start to learn how effective it might be and more definite timescales for rollout .... Gigs around march time I think will happen with testing and followed by festivals in June when we are near the point of vaccination rollout completion ...

Out of upvotes but you'd be getting one if I wasn't :)

I hope although there are some differing / conflicting views on the covid situation that we can all share a beer / cider together come June 2021 or whenever the next festival may be.

Do we think there might be some kind of situation after the initial rollout where you can pay to get the vaccine if not in a priority group? Is that how the flu vaccine works?

I'd be happy to pay quite a bit for it, just as I have in the past with various travel vaccines. Rabies costs an arm and a leg for example.

absolutely ... we all want the same thing ultimately ... just we all have different thoughts on the way it should be achieved ... I dont think actually my thoughts on it are necessarily right .... we actually dont really know whats right and it might be sometime long away that we get some idea .... would love a cider with all of you in June :)

Maybe...one day...but they are going to need to distribute these vaccines on a massive scale, and people may need to take the vaccine once or twice a year...so depends on how much of it is available. To be honest I hope it is properly distributed globally before individuals can just buy it.

If there was some kind of vaccine passport that would buy you an exemption from the restrictions then I’d pay a fortune to get it. Possibly would be willing to pay a grand or more. But then I’m not sure as a society that we want to be going down a route where the haves can pay for a vaccine and free themselves from restrictions whereas the have nots have to stay in lockdown. It’s a tough call really.

I wouldn't want to be part of a society where only the wealthy can get a vaccine...which is probably why it will happen.

Hopefully the covid vaccines are properly tested otherwise they might LITERALLY cost everyone an arm and a leg 😳

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/522718-biden-stretches-lead-over-trump-in-mich-wis-and-penn-poll

 

A new poll finds Joe Biden stretching his lead over President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania as late-breaking undecided voters say they intend to back the Democratic presidential nominee. 

The latest survey of likely voters in the three former “blue wall” states from the Elections Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison finds Biden nearly doubling his lead in each state compared to last month.

Crucially, Biden is above the 50 percent mark in all three states, while Trump remains mired in the low to mid-40s.

In Michigan, Biden leads by 10 points, 52 to 42. Five percent of voters remain undecided. The same poll from September found Biden with a 6-point advantage. 

The poll from Wisconsin finds Biden leading 53 to 44, with 3 percent undecided. Biden’s 9-point advantage is up from 4 points in September.

The closest state is Pennsylvania, where Biden leads 52 to 44, with 3 percent undecided. Biden has grown his lead from 4 points in September to 8 points now.

Even without a vaccine Glastonbury will be going ahead next summer. As I’ve stated before a larger testing system will enable the festival to go ahead. So whilst a vaccine would be very welcome it’s not the deciding factor. I guess what I’m saying is even if all vaccines stall then festivals will go ahead next summer.

Yeah agreed, was thinking longer term.

To be clear, I'm not at all suggesting there should just be access for everyone who could afford it. I want to see vulnerable people and heath workers get it ahead of everyone else. But as with other optional vaccines just wondering if you might be able to get it even if it's not deemed essential for you to do so, if you see what I mean, a way down the line.

For a minute then I thought you were turning Tory on us 😉

Isn't that what Michael Eavis said recently?

Maybe. problem is we don't know how long these vaccines last, people may need top ups once or twice a year...so that will be a massive demand. But..maybe, if the price is right. I think if you're under 50...and most of the vulnerable are getting vaccinated...then probably no need...although long covid can be a problem.

Ha no. I'd like everyone to get it for free that needs it. But just thinking that as someone who could afford it I would be happy to pay for it.

I agree with that. I’d be happy to pay for it if I really needed it or I was coming into contact with someone that could be vulnerable.
