I recently came across some important information and I had to let you know, just in case you were not aware. I will keep it light and brief. I’d love to have found a clever way to link music and COVID-19 in this post but I can’t think at the mo…I tell you what, I will leave one of my light hearted videos at the bottom to put a smile on your face afterwards 🙂
First the serious bit.
In the UK, there may well be something similar where you are, we can have our say about the distribution and treatment of the COVID-19 vaccine by Friday 18 September 2020. I’ve taken a quick look. In my opinion, this opportunity is something we should not take lightly but respond to as a matter of great importance.
The UK consultation covers the following points:
- authorising temporary supply of an unlicensed product
- civil liability and immunity
- expanding the workforce eligible to administer vaccinations
- promoting vaccines
- making provisions for wholesale dealing of vaccines
Finding a solution for controlling the virus and getting back to ‘normal’ is paramount for all of us but in the midst of this we must ensure that we think through and agree or disagree with suggested changes and controls which are to be implemented. We should consider not just for the short term but also the long term impact of changes to our Law.
For me there are some concerning items in this proposal. I feel a fully-tested-released-in-the-right-way COVID-19 vaccine will boost more confidences rather than circumventing or changing steps to rapidly put something out there. Over the decades some drugs have caused birth defects and other have had nasty side effects. We really don’t know what will be the case with the COVID-19 vaccine. I really want the Government, Scientists, Pharmaceuticals, etc to get it right in this uncharted territory but please read the documents on the link below for yourself and have your say. The documents are long, don’t be put off. Read, percolate, respond.
The consultation closes at 11:59pm on Friday 18 September 2020 in the UK. Comments can be emailed after that date but, for me, who knows at what stage the Government will be at and whether late comments will have any impact – just my opinion.
The two documents and the link to respond online is on the UK Government website here:
Sorry that this post has a concerning tone, but it is too important to leave unmentioned.
Here’s my light hearted video as promised. Enjoy!
Speak to you soon.
Bye for now.
