Yeah, I have plenty of time. Just a bit annoying.

I think there was a push to get it’s introduction delayed until after they’d worked through the bulk of the vaccinations but it was thrown out.

With a bit of luck I’ll get one locally, but they all seem to only be doing AZ at the moment.

Cancelled it, I’ll keep my eye out for something closer over the next couple of weeks. Currently nearest is Walsall (15 miles away).

The introduction of the clean air zone in Birmingham means that I’ll either have to change my second jab booking away from Millennium point or pay £8 to go in, and then out of the city a few minutes later.

Its a bit shit. I wonder if it will affect some uptake?

Can you park at somewhere like Hall Green and get a train into Moor Street?

Maybe, just a bit of a faff.

Its annoying there’s nowhere within 15 miles of Tamworth doing Pfizer yet it seems.

Meanwhile, it’s still only safe to watch football indoors in the clubhouse.

It’s frustrating, and probably what I miss the most from «normal life» now.

My club are allowed fans back again on Sunday. 50 of them. In a 17 000 all seater stadium with four separate stands. Because 50 is the maximum allowed number of participants for any «event» in Oslo currently. As if all «events» are the same and it’s limpossible to make sensible exceptions from rules and guidelines. 

Meanwhile, the number of registered covid related deaths in Norway the past seven days is one. 1. Uno. Ein.

You can apply for an exemption voucher to get your vaccine here: https://www.brumbreathes.co.uk/info/29/exemptions-3/21/apply-exemption/7

You could read the post immediately before yours and save yourself the bother? :P

Don't forget that not everyone is subject to the charges.  My 11 year Aygo gets away with it for instance.  You can check your vehicle here:

UK Gov Clean Air Zone Vehicle Check

I checked mine, 2.0L Diesel Ford Kuga and it’s £8.

I’ve rebooked for the Sadler Centre in Walsall, about half a mile further but won’t need to faff with applying for an exemption. Can have a little wander around the shopping centre whilst I’m there.

The Times is reporting that the Govt knew the "Indian" variant was in the country two weeks before they told us. I don't suppose anyone is shocked

They tell people -> it’s scare mongering

They wait a bit -> they’re hiding important information

SA Variant. closed the border in 2 days

Indian variant waited 2 weeks to tell us and 8 days further wait to close the border

Indian variant had been declared a variant of concern in March

Yep, I’m not fussed about being told as long as they aren’t ignoring it (which in the India case they possibly were).

Ignoring is very generous

My 14 year old petrol car is free to enter the CAZ. 

Which is nice (not that I ever drive into Brum anymore)

From what I can gather hardly anything fails.
