    Sadly it seems like the tale wagging the dog, many anti-vaxers congregate around school gates advising kids of their rights and also advising not to take.
    Their should be a no go around schools.
    In Germany, no jab, get covid no pay, something we should adopt in the UK.

    Seems, Britain's Omicron outbreak grows by more than 50% in a day: 86 new cases take total to 246 as scientist warns its 'too late' to halt spread and overall Covid cases rise by 16% in week to 43,992.

    It really is more than something akin to flue as some said plus it would be over in weeks two years ago.

    Take care all.

    Here in Oz we are going quite well with a bout 91% fully vaccinated and in some parts as much as 95%.

    From January all children from age 5 will be vaccinated, no jab no school.
    WE have a bout 100 cases of the new variant but so far no deaths or any one in hospital from it, may not bee so bad but is certainly more transmisable.
    But I must say I am a bit miffed when I saw the figures for EU, average only about 62% little wonder they are now mandating in some regions.

    But this will not go away until enough of the worlds population is fully vaccinated.

    The Dame who was responsible for the Oxford AZ has stated that we need all vaccinated as we do not know when or what the next virus may be.

    The next pandemic could be more deadly than COVID-19, according to one of the scientists behind the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
    Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert said: "This will not be the last time a virus threatens our lives and our livelihoods.
    "The truth is the next one could be worse. It could be more contagious, or more lethal, or both."
    She said: "We cannot allow a situation where we have gone through all we have gone through, and then find that the enormous economic losses we have sustained mean that there is still no funding for pandemic preparedness.
    She said: "The spike protein of this variant contains mutations already known to increase transmissibility of the virus.
    "But there are additional changes that may mean antibodies induced by the vaccines, or by infection with other variants, may be less effective at preventing infection with Omicron.
    "Until we know more, we should be cautious, and take steps to slow down the spread of this new variant.
    "But as we have seen before, reduced protection against infection and mild disease does not necessarily mean reduced protection against severe disease and death."
