oh, I don't know...I'm not sure it's about anti vaxers or mollycoddling...I think it's the fact we have an infectious variant and not everyone fully vaccinated yet.

But the US has opened vaccinations to 18+ so do we replicate their approach when we reach that stage? Or not?

Yep of course … get them in the arms of those who want them … as long as it doesn’t slow the rollout or reduce uptake in those that remain and then take the final steps

Is that thumbnail real? Did Johnson literally just steal Biden’s campaign slogan?

Check out Neuralink that Elon Musk is developing. I’m genuinely interested in seeing what it can do. 

This is a good overview - albeit from a few years back: https://waitbutwhy.com/2017/04/neuralink.html 

Very cool stuff.

Although I’ve never been too keen on the concept since reading an SF story - William Gibson I think? - where some poor guy gets a virus in his neural implant that displays adverts 24/7. Shoots himself shortly after…

It maybe cool...but at same time I think it's a fuckin terrible idea.

Now if there was a variant which only affected midges... 

We wouldn’t be able to go outside for weeks if all the midges started dropping out of the sky. Loch Lomond would burst its banks.

For the average person there’s probably not much need for it but as someone who has got a dodgy brain I’d be interested in if it could sort me out.

The difference with America is they get their second doses a lot quicker. Even if we had the supply to open up to over 18’s tomorrow and get them all in arms as quick as possible, it’s still another 3 months until they get the second dose. It was a lot easier to them to relax things for fully vaccinated people than it will be for us. We either have to wait longer or we take a different approach.

You're basing that on old information that's changed and likely to change again.

The current recommended gap between doses has already been reduced to 8 weeks, with centres currently having permission to deliver second doses as soon as 6 weeks after the first on AZ walk-ins and 4 weeks on Pfizer/Moderna.

When we get in to the end game, with few or no first doses left to deliver and all the outstanding second doses being Pfizer/Moderna (we've not been delivering AZ first doses for a few weeks now), it's near certain that the recommendation will drop again to ~4 weeks as in many other countries.

Mine is still 11 weeks.

When was it booked?

Try again now, you might find you can move it up. Actually, having seen it done first hand, it wouldn't shock me if you get a phone call at some point offering you the chance to move it up.

It’s not booked I had it at the doctors. If I go on the national booking site I still can’t book a second dose until 11 weeks after the first.
