First doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus jab are to be given as the UK accelerates its vaccine programme to tackle a surge in cases.

More than half a million doses of the vaccine are ready for use on Monday.

The health secretary described it as a "pivotal moment" in the UK's fight against the virus, as vaccines will help curb infections and ultimately allow restrictions to be lifted.

But the PM has warned tougher virus rules may be needed in the short-term.

Boris Johnson said regional restrictions in England are "probably about to get tougher" as the UK struggles to control a new, fast-spreading variant of the virus.

On Sunday more than 50,000 new confirmed Covid cases were recorded in the UK for the sixth day running, prompting Labour to call for a third national lockdown in England.

Northern Ireland and Wales currently have their own lockdowns in place, while Scottish cabinet ministers will meet later to consider further measures.

The original question was "are teachers essential workers?" My answer to that is are peoples lifes in danger if teachers don't go to work? The answer is no! The repercutions of teachers not going to work are in no way due to them being essential works or is their personal responsibility. They are there to teach period. At this time it is not safe for them to do so. Any labour law should acknowledge such conditions!

After a patient recovers from Corona they have already developed antibodies (T cells). A vaccination is essentially weakened Carona virus or the spike protein of the virus or similar influenza virus. When injected, the immune system responds by creating antibodies and killing the invaders.
A person who already has antibodies need not take the vaccine. Why would a person who already has antibodies need a vaccine?
Vaccines should be given to those who do not show antibodies in an antibody test. The object of vaccinations is to create antibodies!
Why is the government compelling people to take vaccinations without any test?

Why Astra Zeneca suddenly wanted to open their huge new laboratory in Cambridge just before 2019? Any ideas? The only reason why it wasn't opened on time is because of unplanned construction mistake.
As the scripture says: Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. Luke 17:33 KJV
Many will take covid-19 vaccine thinking they are saving themselves but the truth is they will be doomed forever. WAIT AND SEE!!!, LET HE WHO HAS EARS HEAR FROM THE LORD!!!

I don't expect Greece or France were looking out for curfew either, but it certainly wasn't ruled out!
Please Mr Announcer; WHO told you this?.... Perhaps if everyone would just stop asking so many questions and blindly accept a jab, we might avoid curfew!!!... Oh and BTW if curfews are the way to go, can I assume that the virus is now mutating into a nocturnal virus and will only spread at night, because in the daytime it will be sleeping?

- Lockdowns don't work = more lockdowns
- Lockdowns DO work = more lockdowns

Heads I win, tails you lose.

- Cases are up = the masses have disobeyed, they must be punished = more lockdowns
- Very few people are dying from the virus = many people are dying from the virus
- Only old people or those with co-morbidities have died = young people are also dying, here's a handful of isolated cases without context or detail

Do not think, simply obey.

- Vaccines don't stop people transmitting the virus = you must take our vaccine
- You have a statistically insignificant chance of contracting or becoming seriously ill from the virus = you must take our vaccine

You have no choice.

- You are a healthy adult who wants to makes your own decisions about your health and safety = you must take our vaccine
- You want to take our vaccine = you are highly intelligent, well-informed and may continue to access basic public services

We know what is best for you.

- I don't believe a small group of strangers whose authority I never consented to should have the power to confine people to their own homes indefinitely or have the power to coerce people into being injected with a foreign substance against their will = you are uneducated, likely a member of the working class, are now on a secret government list and...we care for you deeply; your safety is our primary concern

Give up, it is easier this way.

- You would like to discuss the matter with your friends, family or meet with other concerned citizens = YOU MUST NEVER GATHER WITH OTHER CITIZENS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. IT IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.
- When will this end = when we are absolutely certain that all citizens are once again safe, happy and protected.

Science be praised; we're all in this together.

If you were United in Your KINGDOM why did you not ask the cooperation of all in the Kingdom.
People will always cooperate as their loved ones are at risk .

Salute you Sir Keir Starmer , I am 100% agreeing with your words. What is the point in having different tiers in other areas if the virus is going to spread fast and out of control. Just do another full national lockdown for 4 weeks to slowly calm the virus down. That's include schools as well. Every lives matters, and really I don't want another year full of uncertainty with the PM

End of the world. A 'ONE world kingdom' which will allow the Antichrist to prosper is on its way. The coronavirus pandemic will lead to a one world kingdom as it will force many people to rely on the government. The passage Daniel 7:23-25 reads: "The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.
"The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings.

Vaccine issue. Let's say that I don't have their rushed vaccines. How, if the vulnerable have all been vaccinated, would I pose a risk to them? I'm young, fit & strong, so I really don't want rushed vaccines that could potentially weaken my immunity. This disease is mild when compared to serious diseases such as smallpox or polio. Many have had it & not really noticed anything. Also, why if this virus is so devastating to health, do I need a test to see if I'm ill or not! Furthermore, what happens if we don't build a natural tolerance to covid19? How would our immunities be able to tackle covid21?

by no means Pfizer’s first offence. In 2007, Pfizer subsidiary Pharmacia & Upjohn paid $34 million and pleaded guilty to paying kickbacks for formulary placement of its drugs and entered into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement for off label distribution of Genotropin, its brand for the human growth hormone somatropin. In 2004  Pfizer subsidiary Warner–Lambert pleaded guilty and paid more than $430 million to resolve criminal charges and civil liability arising from its fraudulent marketing practices with respect to Neurontin, its brand for the drug gabapentin. Originally developed for the treatment of epilepsy, Neurontin was illegally promoted off-label for the treatment of various forms of neurological pain, and in particular for migraine.

I see that there are many who, although not in favor of the vaccine by conviction, are nevertheless willing to accept it in the hope that, once vaccinated, everything will go back to the way it was before. For the benefit of all, but especially of these people, I would like to highlight a passage from a conversation, which I translated, which recently took place between some scientists and the FDA expert on the efficacy of the vaccine and the evolution of the virus, which can be read in original on the official website of FDA.

"DR. ERIC TOPOL: I'm really glad you mentioned it, John, because I wanted to ask Steve and Peter. Because we have this so called B117 variant in the UK and other countries, but mostly in the UK. It has 23 mutations. There are a couple of them in spike protein that are particularly incriminating. And it is also one of those mutations shared by a South African variant, this so-called N501Y
But what I wanted to ask Steve and Peter was, OK, we'll probably see further drift and evolution of this virus. We are already starting to see it beyond the pandemic dominant 614, the D614G. So at some point there will be a need for booster shots, whether it's a year or every time ”.

No wonder, given the AIFA statements some time ago, contained in faq no. 31:

"Faq n. 31 - Question: Does vaccination allow you to go back to life as before?
Answer: Even if the effectiveness of the COVID-19 mRNA BNT162b2 vaccine is very high (over 90%) there will always be a portion of vaccinated who will not develop the immune defense, moreover, we still do not know definitively if vaccination only prevents the manifestation of the disease or even the transmission of the infection. This is why being vaccinated does not confer a "certificate of freedom" but it is necessary to continue to adopt correct behaviors and measures to contain the risk of infection "

In my opinion, apart from the considerable risks of a vaccine with many unknowns, our freedom will remain even more constrained than it is already now, having to submit to a continuous and constant mass vaccination whose consequences are currently unfathomable. .
