And who actually said Flu had disappeared completely?
Those figures I posted up earlier only went up to 2019.

I think there is perhaps some evidence somewhere that deaths from flu have vanished during 2020/21, but who knows?

Can't be bothered to look it up it's too early in the morning.
I dunno about anyone else, but I'm starting to get a bit fed up with this virus that's hanging around.
Anybody else noticed it...? ;) 😜 😁

The link I posted goes up to week 45 2020.
Shows people here prefer a picture to actual data ;) 😂

What about others you know who have had it, although i know it's hard not to focus on death of a friend.
To be honest I dont know that many people who have had it. One of Michelles friends, her husband and their daughter had it and were all fine. they were not exactly fit either but in their 50s. Another friend of mine who again is older and not in the best of health had it and only just pulled through.

Im in the worst shape Ive been for years. I started a diet in January but Ive failed miserably. You would think all this would spur you on to get in shape but its had the opposite effect on me. I just eat and drink more and hardly get any exercise mainly due to dodgy knees. Bit of a catch 22. I used to swim a lot but thats knackered now for the foreseeable.

We seem to be racing ahead up here in the North East. (y)

And that's in spite having some of our vaccines 'redistributed' to other areas of the country where they needed more supplies.

Pity we couldn't get some shipped up to Scotland for 2cv etc. :(

Seems strange, northerners getting priority for something. Call me a sceptic but I'm just saying..... 🤔
I know! It's pretty amazing really!! 😂

Probably because we're used to pulling together when times are tough.
(We've had plenty of those in the past)
Oh, and we are good at talking to each other a fair bit.
Well, a lot actually.... 😵🥴🤣🤣

But it does help to get the wheels oiled and moving overall (y);)

Some might say too much. I always thought that if you stood next to someone from Shields in a queue they would know your life story within five minutes 😉

Ok you giving them YOUR life story but would you have the patience and respect to listen to their life story. Too many out their who want you to listen to them BUT are not interested in what you have to say in return reply sadly.

Parochials often want to know who you are, where you're from and what you're doing in their neck of the woods.

Not always for the right reasons, either :oops:
At least in Shields I would say it's because they're genuinely being friendly ;)

Did it say you needed to be "64 and over" or 65+? A friend told me he just went to website and booked appointment (no letter) and he's 64, which puts him in cohort 7 and according to .gov cohorts 5 & 6 are being done at moment.
