They were trying to buy hydroxycloroquine and were ready to take it when Trump was all promoting it, even though doctors were saying it was dangerous. But the vaccine? Nope. "It hasn't been tested enough." "It has to have side effects." How much testing do you need after millions and millions of people have taken it with no issues? I think some people just make up their minds and there is nothing you can say once they've decided to endorse a particular position.
    I still can't believe there's still quite a few who blather on about people not wearing seatbelts in cars before the 80s and it 'never doing anyone any harm'.

    Perhaps not if they were lucky and never had any accidents, but if they did they often weren't so lucky!

    We can't since it's a prescription only med. Our MHRA don't have it licensed for the virus so GPs would be on their own in absence of a NHS temporary guideline until licensing caught up.

    A study of health workers did see an 88% success though...but they took it anally

    I have an uncle who was a fireman in the 70s. He cut people out of cars who didn't wear belts and it wasn't pretty (so much so he banned his children from owning Minis); mind you, your average car in the 1970s wasn't a particularly safe place to be either.

    I know a few people who refuse to wear them even now.

    Yeah, my dad and many other blokes of his age group who vividly remember the 70s told me that Morris Marinas were extremely problematic and amongst the worst cars ever!

    Some Minis were allegedly notorious 'death trap' vehicles as well, especially when driven too fast by young male drivers with little willies!

    I can't believe there are still people today who refuse point blank to belt up in cars, especially those born after 1983 when surely it's all they've ever known.

    Even when I am sat in a car whilst parked up, I (most ironically) feel uncomfortable without a seatbelt on, let alone when the vehicle is in motion!

    The Marina isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be, it is very much "of its time"; but what didn't help it was that it inherited much of its running gear from the Morris Minor, a design that was by then already 25 years old. Sadly most 1970s British cars were thrown together for what was felt to be a captive audience - and then the Japanese turned up, offered you a car that had everything as standard what was an option on British cars, but also were reliable and didn't need a "short engine" after 40,000 miles!

    Well, job done: I must admit my head feels quite heavy on my shoulders, so I may go and have a lie-down for a while. This time there was no waiting for an hour, it was nice and easy - in fact, I got there early and I was out by the actual time of my appointment!

    There's already talk within the vaccination centre of planning for autumn boosters...
