  1. Here in the Ribble Valley we got off to a flyer. Over 80s mostly done and the rest scheduled for this week. Care homes all done by GPs getting out and doing it. Then we ran out of vaccine. No more till Thursday
  2. Im extremely concerned at the speed with which this vaccine has been rolled out and have said so before on this forum. Does that mean I won't have it? Almost certainly it doesn't. I'll be watching my health like a hawk afterwards and anxious about any side effects but in the end it comes down to the lesser of 2 evils. When my eldest daughter was small there were a lot of studies linking whooping cough vaccine to possible autism risks. I discussed these with my GP .

  8. Its still pretty quiet here in the Ribble Valley, even on busy walking routes
  9. I dont know but I havent seen much evidence of it in the last 10 years at least.
  10. Clitheroe was like a ghost town today. I know it was raining but all the high street was dark. There were fewer than a dozen people in the supermarket. Perhaps we're just well behaved here but if so, why are our cases still rising?
  11. Mainly NI but shortages reported everywhere as are substitutions in deliveries.
  12. To be fair, I've just done a shop at Sainsburys and they have pretty much everything. There were gaps but they were refilling shelves as I went round.
