A good breakdown of the O situation here:

I think you

Aren't you thinking of the BVD vaccine "Pregsure" that possibly caused bleeding calf syndrome (BNP) in some herds? I don't know of any problems with any of the blue tongue vaccines beyond normally expected side effects.
Sorry, you are correct. I’m not a suckler guy, just remember something about it in the SAC news letters.

Listening to Bozo this afternoon is a little like ground hog day, seems to be very similar to when the Delta strain spread like wild fire far quicker here in the UK than in the rest of Europe, the half hearted attempts Bozo proposes seems like neither one thing or another, saying they are very worried about it & wanting to restrict it's spread until they know just how dangerous it might be but in reality doing very little to effectively prevent it, let's hope it turns out to be relatively similar to what's already here or otherwise things could get a bit tricky. Europe looks on us as super spreaders of these virus strains for better or worse!

They keep saying it’s too early to tell how it’s going to unfold.
Well surely if people have been infected with it for at least a month now they have some idea how those folk are getting on. It baffles me how slowly the wheels turn.

Stay positive, they are gathering info as fast as they can. We always knew that the hardest part of '3 weeks to flatten the curve' was going to be the first 79 weeks.

Seem to know that everyone need another jab.

Some future this, every few months running to get an injection when a politician tells us.

So the virus has mutated so much that it could evade the vaccine, but getting a third jab of the presumably unmodified vaccine is the governments solution. I really can’t follow that logic at all, other than it might help a tiny little bit. They say it could take 100 days to modify the vaccine to deal with omicron by which time we could be on virus version omega.
I dare say this virus will end up like the common cold, mutating faster than a vaccine can keep up with and losing strength, hopefully.
But you can still have big gatherings at Christmas. Frankly that sounds like plain stupid advice to me and throws caution to the wind, but what do I know?

If this doesn't make a lot of people start asking questions I dont know what will. I know the media is one sided but surely something is getting through to the masses now! Delighted that booster uptake is low but it needs to stop.
When vaccinated were transmitting they said it was never meant to stop it and still overs good protection against severe disease, now its vital to get a booster to prevent transmission? Which it might for a couple of months, then what?
