What we need is proper Indians, Cliff and Joanna Lumley.

It seems quite obvious to me that some communities who are vaccine hesitant also ignored the international travel restrictions. I don't know what you can do about that.
I suspect it would work to some extent. Not everyone would behave as you suggest and if its for indoor pub drinking that doesn't work too well if you have to drive back to Bolton afterwards. Weather has improved, why not drink outside in Bolton instead? Of course there would be some spread across borders. I don't think that means it wouldn't significantly help.

When you say spike? I'm guessing we just need to avoid a spike in hospital admissions which shouldn't happen because the over 50s have had atleast 1 shot. So nothing to worry about.

Vaccine Update 🦠

Additional clinics offering the covid-19 vaccination to eligible people in Blackburn with Darwen will open up from next week! 💉

Contrary to earlier social media and news reporting, vaccines at the clinics will not be widely available to over 18s 🚫

We're being told the English variant is protecting us, over here - its dominance is keeping us safe from more deadly, alternative variants.

That was the same here when there was a high level of it in the community.

Argentinian ministers and the President did that for a while, citing their relative success to Chile. That went a bit tits up for them.

At the time the Chilean officials were asking them to work together and find cross border solutions.

The Argies love to make political capital out of anything.

It's SC and his tinker mates. They keep upping bricks and moving. Hard to track and trace, hard to work out if they have had the jabs.

A bit of a milestone here, where the CDC is saying people fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask indoors or outdoors.

The problem I see, is people who have refused the vaccination for what ever reason will also no longer wear a mask (which is not OK per the CDC) and who the hell is to know the difference?

Appreciate this will be a very small minority, but will cause aggravation here and there I'm sure. Arseholes will be arseholes, and we will have to continue to be cautious and precautious with or without masks for a time still I fear.

Was discussing the same with mates in the US. No way to enforce it.
CT jnr who works behind a bar told me he will continue to use a mask (he had his second Pfizer last week)
