Re: Vaccine war with EU

Most in the UK seem to happy to have any. When the website offered it to 40+ it crashed so many logged on. Our surgery is doing Moderna this week and Pfizer and AZ 2nd ones. Think it depends what the Surgery has delivered. Daughter had AZ in Paris and she said everyone seemed happy in the queue. She...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

Definitely an agenda. Germany had 20,000 new cases and 300 deaths last Thursday but they are spending time discussing Sputnik.
Now announced that Pfizer is increasing it,s price by 60%. Probably some kick backs around.
If I were AZ I would say f*kc it and withdraw.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

There is chatter on a local forum that a couple have travelled from Spain and staying with relatives as they came solely to UK get the vaccination. Probably valid as real names and locations forum.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

I don’t think they will be allowed through the border unless resident. I have been thinking seriously of changing our Malaga flight to Gibraltar in June. We stayed at the Rock hotel before for a Bar Mitzvah and it was ok. Fantastic view of the bay, ships going too and fro all the time and the Rif mo...

Australia still complaining that Brussels have blocked their orders. Now revealed that the UK has sent 700,000 doses to Australia although a UK Minister said a few weeks ago they hadn’t sent any.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

I think the under 65 group you referred to still had to be key workers. It's a small group as most people in that group have retired so no longer qualify. When I had my jab this week it was Pfizer whereas a couple of weeks before, my wife had Moderna. I was surprised how many no shows there were wh...

Re: Get your food from the UK soon.

I wonder what they were thinking opening at such a time it was always going to be a gamble. At one time it was portrayed that the Uk would be the one to suffer shortages or not be able to afford European exports due to the Euro predicted to drop below parity. We have a shortage of cat food here, esp...

France gives free testing, available at any pharmacy. Daughter has returned to UK but there is then a fee to pay the Government £175 for 2 tests after entering (plus quarantine). The first test kit arrived by post the day after she arrived and there is another one at some point. I worked out to go t...
