What next?

What delivery company are they using?

Who are the drivers?

When did they pass their driving test?

HAVE they passed their test?

Are ciminal checks being done?

I suspect I am a bit like you in that respect. I don't care how they do it, just that they do. I will leave it to the experts. I won't waste their precious time asking unnecessary questions.

This is carried out as standard by any reputable haulage company, and should be checked before the vehicle leaves the site. Even more so with refrigerated products or dangerous or biological goods.

We live in Caerphilly South wales . Has anyone in this area heard of anyone having received the new vaccine.Also what are your views on PO restarting cruises now that there is another lockdown in place?

Have recently read one of the news feeds on my phone stating that cruising out of the US will now be delayed until September 2021 at the earliest. Those companies involved in the statement include Carnival. I have tried to go back and retrieve the link but can't find it. Will post it hopefully later today if I can dig it out. The statement purported to come from the CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) - so far I can't see anything on the "Press Room" area of their website but I will keep checking.

If that statement is true then it may have a knock-on effect on P&O's decision making relating to resumption of sailing from the UK.

Tesco have volunteered to deliver using their refrigerated vehicles. I'm sure the drivers do their checks every morning and their vehicle examiners check a random selection of the vehicles. If caught the operators licence is at risk. All standard stuff for any large organisation. Manuals, procedures, checks, audits, reviews. But if a volunteer says I have given jabs before, don't bother checking. Just give them a few needles and off they can go.

We can only guess as to what will happen, P&O don't do too many cruises visiting the US anyway. The logical start up would likely be cruises around the UK to get things started, we have no idea what/when ports in other countries will be available. Hopefully once the vaccines have demonstrated their efficacy things will become clearer.

Good to hear from you Vampiress. Sounds like you are having a tough time, but things will get better for us all. We just need to hang in there and take each day at a time.

Well maybe you should have said that rather than trying to start an argument with someone else.

I was just wondering why he feels it neccessary to know about delivery dates of the vaccine,it was a valid enquiry,and not directed at you.Nobody is starting an argument,so just calm down and stop causing issues with your agressive unnecessary tactics.

Of course vets can do it.  Totally qualified.  Animals have adverse reactions as well.  So can all pharmacists.  Surprised we haven't brought in the forces.  They have hundreds of medics and paramedics.  

Yeah,and most of their customers are barking mad.

Reference to my post#1652 above I have found the link to the statement released by the CLIA regarding cruises out of the US being delayed until 15th September

 

https://www.cruisetradenews.com/clia-extends-us-sailing-suspension-until-15-september/

 

Whether it will impact on P&O remains to be seen but certainly Carnival will be affected as well as their US based cruise subsidiaries

Watching that makes you realise just how fast they've worked to get this covid vaccine ready in so short a time. People should be grateful, not critical.

Avril

In Feb last year WHO were quoting an expected 18 months before a vaccine would be available to the public, fantastic achievement.

Anyone on here who's had young children in the past can only imagine what it's like for parents at the moment; must be a nightmare, especially when trying to work and all the other things that go with parenthood.

 

Remember the breathing exercises from when you were pregnant? I worked out long ago that they were useless for the birth, but just the job for life thereafter. Deep breaths, Vamps.

 

Good luck and take care.🙂

Seem to recall some of the experts said a vaccine for a coronavirus was impossible. A remarkable achievement.

The article is referencing September 15th 2020.

Some hinted at this, but it may have been based on the fact that the world pretty much stopped looking for a vaccine for the common cold many years ago which is the same type of virus, science is moving at a great rate and even the mRNA version of the vaccine is newish technology.

Absolutely. Hats off to all those very clever and dedicated professionals who have achieved this. Hats off to all those who have been jabbing away. A measure of their success is that the UK is way above the whole of the EU. End is in sight due to the untiring efforts of the experts.

Hi Arlowood is that a new report as in the actual wording it says September 2020 

Apologies guys - geriatric foul up. Copied the link without reading it fully. However I'm sure what I read earlier on the news feed did refer to 2021. I'll keep searching but hold off posting until I double check the facts
