The coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford is highly effective at stopping people developing Covid-19 symptoms, a large trial shows.

Interim data suggests 70% protection, but the researchers say the figure may be as high as 90% by tweaking the dose.

The results will be seen as a triumph, but come after Pfizer and Moderna vaccines showed 95% protection.

However, the Oxford jab is far cheaper, and is easier to store and get to every corner of the world than the other two.

Let’s assume that pretty soon we have three licenced vaccines. Surely we don’t need to vaccinate everyone, or a great majority of the population, before we can end the three-week-lockdown-to-protect-the-NHS? (I dunno about you, but March 2020 is beginning to drag a bit for me.)

Bang a shot into the vulnerable, the elderly, care home and health care workers and we’re good to open up everything. We can target and selectively protect those that need it first. There is no need to cover everyone before unlocking, right? Or am I missing something?

  1. I can agree with this. If we are rolling out the vaccines in large enough numbers to at least cover the most vulnerable and elderly we shouldn’t need another shutdown ( it isn’t a lockdown) again.

  2. Pete – it’s all about a conspiracy theory termed The Great Reset which, although it doesn’t exist, has appeared on Time magazine’s front cover and is described in something called Agenda 2030 which people like us would own nothing and be delighted about it. The bit about vaccines which we all must have or not be allowed to travel or have jobs is described in the link…..

    Are they’re doing it 10 years early! Go team!!

  4. Dave – by 2030, if you’re still alive, you’ll be micro-chipped and sterilised. Possibly not a bad thing from the perspective of a eugenicist.

    Here’s the vaccine that you must have


    Here is an interesting article about the COVID-19 vaccine trials written by William A. Haseltine, who was a professor at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health, and who founded two academic research departments, the Division of Biochemical Pharmacology and the Division of Human Retrovirology.

    Here are the two most important points he makes, which summarizes what he says in his article, are:

    “These [vaccine] protocols do not emphasize the most important ramifications of COVID-19 that people are most interested in preventing: overall infection, hospitalization, and death.”

    [The COVID-19 vaccine trials are only looking to see if these vaccines reduce symptoms that may be as mild as cough and headache. They are NOT requiring that the vaccines reduce the risk of infection, hospitalization or death.]

    “It boggles the mind and defies common sense that the National Institute of Health, the Center for Disease Control, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, and the rest would consider the approval of a vaccine that would be distributed to hundreds of millions on such slender threads of success.”

    As for coercion…….

    Here is one headline, discussing the ideas being talked about in Australia ‘No overseas travel, and no welfare payments: The way the government will force people to get a COVID-19 jab – even as the PM insists the vaccine will NOT be compulsory.’

    Australians could face being banned from travelling overseas for refusing jab
    Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt said he would ‘not rule out’ strict measures
    Echoed prime minister saying he’d make vaccine ‘as mandatory as possible’
    Scott Morrison said later on Wednesday he had no power to enforce a vaccine
    Mr Hunt said government was not considering making inoculation compulsory
    But said authorities would have option of enforcing policies like ‘no jab, no pay’5

    As mandatory as possible? Sorry, but mandatory is binary. It is, or it isn’t. As for the concept of compulsory vaccination. According to the Australian Prime Minister compulsory vaccination would mean pinning people to the floor and vaccinating them. However, telling people that they cannot travel, or work, or receive welfare payments, is tantamount to compulsion.

  5. Dave – by 2030, if you’re still alive, you’ll be micro-chipped and sterilised.

    Well that’s where you’re wrong Allan, because I’m already microchipped and fitted with Bluetooth via my pacemaker. Once again beating the 2030 deadline. Who says the new world order can’t get things done! We should put them in charge.

  6. Dave Alton,

    “Are they’re doing it 10 years early! Go team!!”

    Yes, isn’t it interesting. I for one did not expect that the same crowd that cannot deliver pretty much anything else they promise, cannot even fiddle their expenses without somebody noticing, can’t even get an app out on time, suddenly executes flawlessly.

    It seems we have been talking down something fierce to these politicians all this time.

  7. theres 4 vaccines if you include the Russians and theres whispers of the chinese having one too everything should be coming up roses by this time next year

  8. Or if it all goes wrong we’ll be pushing up daisies 😀

  9. A few days ago I volunteered for a Covid-19 vaccine trial. I thought It’s important that we all do our part to beat this virus.

    The vaccine is the one that’s developed in Russia. I received my first dose this morning at 6:20 am and I wanted to let you know that it’s completely safe, with иo side effects whatsoeveя, and that I feelshκι я чувю себя немного стрно и я думю, что вытл осные уши. чувству себя немго страо.

  10. Oh no, ATW can expect an avalanche of Pro Putin comments from Noel in the coming months….until he gets the Chinese vaccine and then becomes a Jinping fanboy 😀

  11. Noel took the (bat) soup.
