    I'll bet you "they" haven't been tweaking and testing vaccines for new variants. Do you have any idea the time and cost associated with testing?

    I've certainly got no idea, but as you clearly have, could you tell us? Then we won't make such silly statements again. How much does it cost, and what is the breakdown of the cost? I'd love to know.

    I think we're on safe ground there.

    they can tweak it though I said above I saw a interview with one of Pfizers people ( chief scientist I think ) he said that they could tweak the vaccine as needed and it would be on the production line within hours ( this was early this year though, things could have changed )

    "Tweaking" mRNA vaccines is "simple" and quick. However, testing them is not.

    Omicron symptoms mild so far, says South African doctor who spotted it https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-59450988

    Let’s hope this is right, spreads easily but very mild symptoms

    Football related evidence that the Omicron variant seems very contagious.

    On BBC news tonight Cardiff Rugby say that the squad was tested again and reported that still only the two players with Covid, one of whom has the Omicron variant. So maybe not so contagious??

    Taken from the Guardian’s rolling coverage.

    Early figures from South Africa show that fewer than a third (31%) admitted to hospital with Omicron related Covid are suffering what qualifies as severe symptoms. This compares with two thirds suffering severe symptoms in the country’s first two waves.

    Sounds encouraging.

    Had my booster today. My first 2 were AZ, this was Moderna. Wiped me out, light headed, fell asleep, nausea, just coming out of it 6 hours later. Unusual, I’m normally robust to injections

    Had my booster yesterday.

    First 2 were also AZ, but the booster was Pfizer. Arm a bit more sore than for the first two, but otherwise OK. Is there some value to the mix and match approach to the booster, or doesn't it matter?

    For the first two jabs the NHS were insistent on using the same vaccine. For the booster from what I have read there may be a benefit in changing it?

    Hoping that Omicron is the beginning of the end of Covid (As a big issue anyway).
    Very transmisable and so far very mild.

    I was rough 12-36 hours after my Booster.
    Felt worse than the second I think.
    Arm hurt for probably 4 days.

    Had flu like symptoms after my first AZ jab, felt fine after my second one and then it was a pleasant surprise when I didn't have any side effects from my Moderna booster a fortnight ago - I was certainly expecting some after hearing one or two horror stories from people who'd had the same combination as me, but nothing at all.

    If it’s not mild we will all be in lockdown again for January at least…..

    People have been advised against attending Christmas parties to ease "increasing pressures" on the NHS.

    Drakeford announces that it would be desirable if we all carry out a lateral flow test before we go shopping or visiting other people. Wow, are there enough test kits in Wales for everyone to be able to do that on a regular basis? I got our first test kit this week from our local pharmacy as my wife has cold-like symptoms and we wanted to check it out (negative thankfully). It was ironic to read that the kit was made in China - a nice little earner there. Start a pandemic and then supply the test kits!
