Doubtful, as most of the vaccines would then be either left on the doorstep or delivered to a neighbour :o

Some EU countries wanted to get on with it, but the EU forbade them from doing so. The EU haven't a fast process, nor have they bought enough vaccine, or equipment or people to administer it to the levels needed. On this front the UK, out of the EU is able to move forward at great pace.

Germany has however, incurred the wrath of Brussels by following the UK's model and procuring the vaccine outside the formal EU process. There are some bitter arguments going on in the EU about it. The poorer EU countries are having to wait, it's far from solidarity.

It won't be long before the UK has 3M vaccinations completed; which is more than all the EU countries put together by a substantial margin.

Agree Lewi about the EU being somewhat chaotic with this, though we are only so far ahead in vaccinations because we took the 'risk', call it a calculated gamble if you like, that our shortened approval process would not compromise the evaluation of the vaccine's efficacy. Similarly the decision to delay the 2nd jab in order to vaccinate a greater number of people is also a risk in that the there is no evidence from any of the vaccine producers that says there will no loss of protection from delaying it. However, there is no counter evidence either, there's just no evidence full stop. Our gamble is paying off in terms of the number vaccinated, whether that has any unwanted consequences I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Rather a second-nose than dead....................plus I have some faith in scientists and the regulatory approval-process.

Will you be side-stepping any vaccination because you know better ??

I'll be queueing up with the rest of them GM. A limited protection is better than none. Pity our PM doesn't have the same faith in his scientists as you and I do, he's been ignoring/stalling on their advice for the last 6 months much to the demise of thousands.
