Got to be some.

As for why, well two things spring to mind, one they are thick, two they are happy to die sooner than could have been.

I would think it is a very low number of refusals at the moment because the people who are being offered the vaccine are from a generation that understand the importance.

I was taken for the polio vaccination in 1957. Doubt if there were many that refused to have their child vaccinated. And where is polio now? Non existent in this country.

Everyone should still have the vaccine, as everyone can still pass on covid to others.

However studies from Israel seem to be suggesting that once you have had the vaccine the chances of you passing on covid are diminished.

Yet another area where it's maybe best to distinguish England, Wales and Scotland from the UK as a whole.

Of course, SNP have all their answers to stuff like this, and I can't be bothered looking into the detail.

But I wouldn't trust them to organise whelk stalls [-(

The UK has now given a first vaccine dose to 10% of its population, the first ‘big’ nation to get anywhere near this milestone. Next in line would be the US at around 6%, with Italy the top EU country currently hovering above 2%. France, well, let’s not mention France...

Also interesting is that it took us around a month to get to 5%, but only two weeks to reach 10% from there. We’re absolutely motoring now, and getting faster it seems by the day.

There are still only the 2 that are available at the moment. The others are not available for quite a while.

Think the Johnson and Johnson one dose vaccine could be available in March.
