COVID-19: who’s going full doomsday prep on this?

Nice of the English to test the efficacy of the vaccine

Am I mistaken in my understanding that the vaccine doesn’t guarantee you won’t catch Covid, but it almost guarantees you won’t suffer any chronic effects requiring hospitalization?
Fully aware I may be misguided on this.

No guarantees, AFAIK, only greatly reduced chance of - getting ill, passing covid to others, suffering acute/chronic symptoms requiring hospitalization.

I turn 40 in a bit over a month, figured i'd get the ball rolling now since i'll be finally eligable for some vaccination goodness (despite having to work this entire time, havn't been deemed frontline enough)

What a shitshow that booking system is though! jeezuz, i can handle the extensive details and all the questions about my eligability, but when it comes time to book there's nothing available and the way it makes you check is fucking abysmal. pick a location, then pick a month long date range, then submit. no good? pick another month long date range and hit submit. no good? pick another location and date range and hit submit.

holy shitballs, its not vaccine hesitancy thats stopping us, its this piss poor excuse for a rollout. at this rate I reckon i should be good to get my jab by the time i'm 60. cos stuff sitting here all night trying different locations and timeframes.

Same here, I think they prioritise people so most likely going to be dependant with the area, but saying that a mate of mine was playing soccer and a vaccination clinic bus turned up and done the whole team without even a booking.

Thats what I used, found a clinic 1.5km away for the next day... easy.

The hard bit was jab 2, only had 3 dates and I was working all 3. Booked for the day before a course, going to cancel in case I feel shitty.

Ask the other sister. She's frontline (path lab handling Covid swabs) and yet she had to fight management at the hospital she works at to get AZ in the second round (should have been Pfizer in first round). Then her second immunisation booking got booted, despite being told, in writing, it was ok and to ignore the cancellation. Nope, she had to book in again.
