I've been into Halifax today to the supermarket and it was very busy, my brother said it was similar yesterday.

I know St. John volunteers who are doing their first bit of training this week for giving out the jabs!

The big problem with that Pfizer one is the ultra cold storage temperatures required. Makes the logistics of sending it out and storing it locally much harder. I can see the Moderna vaccine being the main one they use if they can ramp up productions.
I’ve got a brand new -86C freezer they can use for a small fee, and it’s currently empty.

My daughter who had covid was asked to be a plasma donor. She volunteered but was rejected for being underweight. I heard it might take some time to get more vaccine doses. When I worked in a laboratory we had a minus 80 degree environmental chamber (fridge). I think there are a few about.

I was rejected because I'm on beta blockers for migraine prevention. It made me sad.

I was thinking about this at 3am, unable to sleep - surely most universities have a suitable freezer?

based on the fact that say 90%+ of the people that die from Covid are say 80 years old or above and we are giving them this jab first of all does that not mean that by the time end of January rolls around the death rate from this will be very very close to zero?

I think that's the idea. I was hanging onto Jonathan van Tam saying that by Easter, he fully expected that 99% of those who were likely to have complications (i.e. pretty much everyone over 50 or with an underlying condition) would have been vaccinated.

Here's hoping the government don't bugger it up. I wish the army was more closely involved. Complex logistics is what they do.
