Any questions?

This afternoon.

…said NPHET had a ‘substantial concern” about the number of ICU beds being taken up by Covid-19 patients because he said the knock-on effect is that those beds would normally by ordinary people who cannot get access to surgeries or interventions

Dr Holohan warned fully-vaccinated people that there are still risks involved with getting Covid-19 “even if those risks are substantially reduced”.

Just because everything is open doesn’t mean we all have to do them or that we all have to do them at the same time,” he said.

The Chief Medical Officer said it would “be sensible” for people who were in nightclubs at the weekend to stay away from vulnerable people in the following days.

When we get vaccinated we are protecting ourselves, but we are also protecting the vulnerable around us, slowing transmission of disease and driving it out of the population.

Vaccination is all about solidarity.

…A large amount of the blame for the growth of “anti-vaxx” and dangerous anti-scientific beliefs about Covid-19 rests with the phamra giants and the Capitalist system.

…But, we must defend science and its immense liberatory, life-saving potential. Vaccines are safe and save lives.

…Vaccinate as an act of solidarity with others. Fight for science and medicine for the many!

Well, since you put it that way.

Vaccines are one of our best tools to prevent dangerous diseases, but they come with side effects. So would it be safer not to vaccinate?
