    We're right to be cautious about following up the long term effects, given how quickly it was developed, but this is all clearly bad science being twisted by the media to fuel the debates that fund them
    Given that most women in their 40s will have had the vaccine, and most women in their 40s start to see changes in their periods anyway as the menopause approaches - 4000 reports out of however many million women jabbed is just noise
    We should only really be concerned about looking for trending in side-effects that pose a serious health threat IMO

    These figures don’t include the respiratory high dependency units, they have also massively increased capacity.

    Couple of interesting stats
    NHS figures showed 5,176 critical care beds occupied on January 17 compared to 3,066 same time last year 
    NHS intensive care units are almost 70 per cent busier than they have been at any time over the past five years.
    A quarter of NHS hospital trusts — or 35 out of 132 — had no spare capacity in their intensive care units on January 17. Just 14 facilities were completely full on the same day last winter. 
     
    Figures showed 86 per cent of England's 5,992 intensive care beds were full at this date.
    This is similar proportion to the last four years — when units were between 83 and 87 per cent full — but there were only 3,746 ICU beds on average over the last four years.
    Note this was a few weeks ago, numbers have dropped.

    Indie Sage published the below breakdown of COVID stats by age.
    Interesting that it shows vaccinating all those over 65 would largely eradicate COVID as a deadly virus but would only reduce ICU pressure by ~40%.
    In the coming months its going to be NHS pressure that dictates level of lockdowns, even if the death rate is much much lower.

    Lets face it, we were forced to adopt the half a job vaccination programme we have due to previous shambolic decisions. It was the right thing to do, only because it was the only thing we could do, else the NHS would have fallen over. As it stands it looks like we'll just about get away with it.
    Those that are behind us now vaccine wise will soon catch up as their more highly effective jabs will start to have a greater impact on infection levels.
    Will be interesting to see what the level of infections are when lockdown/tier restrictions are no longer deemed necessary. Expecting some measures to remain in place for another year at least.

    I don't think there's really any need to pull Australia up. Fair play to them, they went down a path and it's been the right one. Comments about Australia's response, and particularly Albert's comparisons with countries that have fared worse, just sound like sour grapes and jealousy.
    We went down a different path. It appears to not be working, and we're the worst performer in Europe for spread of the infection. We need to understand the reasons why, and why other nations did better than we did. I doubt this will be the last species jumping virus we have to contend with, so let's get a really detailed understanding of best practice now, ready for the next time.
    I'd like to see all countries with a successful vaccination plan rollout, as we'll never get back to normal until there's control everywhere across the world. Bitterness about who's leading the line doesn't really achieve anything. I hope the UK and Aus both roll out their vaccines in record time. I don't mind being a close second to them, or them being a close second to us. And I certainly won't criticise any country for making sure they have adequate planning before they act. I wish the UK had done more of it.
