Both DH and I are boostered up yet must still take a day 2 PCR.
This being the case, I donít see too many people being sold on the idea if they were hesitant already
Fast forward 6 months, the booster isnt enough, you need a 4th

I disagree, other countries (France) will be requiring it. So in the long run, itís going to be needed I think.

I think I would rather take my chance with a 99.7% survival rate.

We'll be offered regular boosters like flu shots - the question is how long the spacing will be. I think somewhere between 7 and 12 months. Unless it proves that boosters give even longer protection - we can but hope 🤞

I am not on my own either...
My heart goes out to you!

Many are in this situation - myself and close family members such as my 22 year old DD are included to be honest - but I genuinely donít think these new restrictions will make the already bad situation worse. Rather, it could help make a return to normal Ďquickerí.

I do know this and am pro vaccine for the vulnerable, I am just being devilís advocate as there are many people now (just look at social media) believing that we have been sold a pup with the vaccines.
They were supposed to be a way back to normality. If they are not, then why will they not just be honest about it?

YES - I do know that they reduce severity and hospitalisations and deaths BUT this thing gives you a 99.5% chance of survival even if you get it.

It depends how you look at it, if you just got it for travel then no there is no advantage to having it, I didnít get it just for that reason.

We are all in the same boat, we all have to take a 2 day PCR.
I have had my jabs SOLELY to be able to travel.
It is not hard for me to get a PCR (Iím only 11 miles from Manchester airport and can do a walk or drive in) so I will have no difficulty in complying.
I have always been prepared to take my chances against a 99.5% survival rate.

I just question the promotion of jabs and boosters when there is no perceivable benefit of having them (apart from supposed self protection)

Sue. The whole thing is a dogs dinner. Do what I intend to do, comply with the travel rules albeit through gritted teeth and wait for things to become normal again. None of this is going to influence how I go about my life. One would have thought the Bubonic Plague was running rampant due to the reporting of this hiccup we currently know little about.

Me and DH were supposed to be running the Valencia Marathon next Sunday and taking our 3 teenagers for a weekend in Spain. Whole lot now cancelled but hey, travel is a luxury and I've been very lucky to get everything back in refunds or vouchers. Just no marathon medals!

Just wanted to say that the company we booked our kids' pre-travel PCR tests with, offered us a full refund! In case this helps anyone in the same boat who may also have thought they were non-refundable?

Less likely to catch it = less likely to pass it on. I see that as a perceived benefit.

IFR increases with age, ie at my age itís 0.75%. At over 80 itís over 2%. My chances of dying in a road accident are much less than dying of COVID if I catch it, I wear a seat belt to keep that risk low.

The more people have it and require hospital care, the less other people who might need a hospital bed will have available to them.

Iím not having a go or anything, just giving you my reasons why I think there are perceived benefits to vaccines.

Entirely up to you what you do of course.
