New restrictions for arrivals by air into the UK from Monday
Booking system crashed yesterday within minuets of going live

only airports you can arrive at from a red list country London Heathrow(expected) Gatwick or City , Birmingham(dont see why these 3 are listed as virtually no flights from anywhere) and Farnborough (also expected)

very few exemptions of people who do not have to go into hotel quarantine mainly politicians, military personnel(on duty) and medics , sports people are not exempt from this one

have looked at the process best I can cannot tell if you can choose you hotel (I know you cannot choose the room)

£1750 per person £650 for a second adult or child over 12 and £325 per child under 12

and the rules seem very strict , it was said you would be able to leave the room for exercise under supervision but it seems this is at the discretion of the hotel management security staff and only if they have the time

Your mum should have had her vaccination - the news is saying Wales have completed Cohorts 1-4

Don't want to teach you to suck eggs but I would call your GP today.

Filled in my Vaccination consent form - I assume you take it with you although the text implies to drop it off at your GP but that can't be right as the vaccine you received is added to the form

Have you enquired through your mums GP.
Had the same with my dad, 78 and with part of 1 lung missing.
Was seeing people in the 60 years + getting it and was thinking things are not right.

My sister went on line with is national insurance number and nhs number and got him booked in for next Monday.

Poor old oh fudge was threatened with a lump hammer and then head butted by some youths 2 days ago while walking is dog.

My self have been shielding all week due to a work colleague going positive and track and traced me. So have to stay in for a week and only get ssp pay,

Not a very good week.

I didn't have any forms to fill in. Just turned up at surgery, was quickly checked in and jabbed immediately. I just have a small card confirming date of jab and type of Astro Zeneca with slot for second jab. Simples says Sergei :thumb:

As I said no such bureaucracy required with me going direct to my GP surgery for jab. Did not collect £200 or Go To Jail. May be different if you are going to a vaccination hub rather than your own GP surgery.

4 people checking you in and Gerwyn Price doing the jabs; they certainly were not hanging around as the next person was ready to be jabbed as I was putting my top back in line. Remember to wear something you can easily slip your chosen arm and shoulder out of as the jab is given very high up on your arm.

Take it with you, go through the front doors of JC Centre and there is a person just inside the doors that take it from you. They will point you in the right direction once in.

Sure Boris had said that although Cohorts 4 and 5 were priority, Cohorts 6 and 7 were also being invited to book their appointments. This is also the case up here, but no figures are being released to say what the numbers are.

While Wales may have vaccinated the numbers required, it is apparent from how the numbers are reported up here that vaccines delivered in some cohorts are exceeding the estimates.

If relatives or friends are slipping through the net here, people have to be getting in contact with GPs, NHS/vaccination help lines, and if you are in Scotland, the FM herself as a last resort.

Good to see some spectators at the cricket in Chennai. Hopefully the Indian authorities have got it right.

Feel a little bit lethargic this morning after jab yesterday otherwise no problems. :thumbs:

I also feel lethargic - and I had my COVID vaccine jab 4 weeks ago. But maybe I'm always like that !!!!

I was just about to post something similar

I think they said the ground is at 15% capacity or was it 50%? Either way it is good to see.

India population 1.4 Billion and reported Covid deaths 157000 according to Google. I realize I am repeating myself but I still don't understand why the death rate per head is relatively low in India. I guess there are a few plausible explanations such as a different less efficient mutation , bad reporting of deaths , less obese and fitter population etc but to a layman like me it is a mystery.

The average age in India is 27 years ( according to Google) which is remarkable in its self but it still means there is probably 500 million people older than 40 in India.

Edit : the cricket commentator might have answer when he said India is just coming out of the winter months when temperatures were 26c! 10 months of summer.

Lethargy is an entitlement or malady of the retired!

No lethargy is one of the possible consequences of a jab. Would you like to spell the name of the Indian commentator, not just LS! :thumb: :ninja:
