Two For Tawse And Tawse For Two

Coronavirus Belgium

Just a quick update on the situation here in Belgium. I have to say that I am cautiously hopeful that we are on the road to recovery here but I am keeping a weather eye on the Indian strain that has yet to appear in large numbers, at this time in Belgium. All the bad numbers have been on a steady decline for some weeks now and we have reached the national government set target of less than 500 people in Intensive Care Unit beds, with COVID-19. This should allow some relaxation of regulations to go ahead in June. The last Rt rate, that I saw, stood at 0.82 and deaths are down to an average of 17 per day. The vaccination program has picked up pace and is steaming ahead nicely now. If you want to see all the latest figures, click the link below. Remember these numbers are for a country with a population of a little over eleven million people


Three ways to legally get the vaccine in Belgium

There are three ways that people can get vaccinated in Belgium and I thought that I would list them for your information

1/ Wait for a letter from the national government, that contains a personal code for you. Then make an appointment, via the internet or telephone to visit your local vaccination centre. This is how most people (including myself) are getting their vaccination

2/ Put your name down on the reserve list for your local vaccination centre, via the internet. If there are missed appointments on any particular day then vaccination will be offered to those on the reserve list. This is a good option for anyone in a situation where they can just drop everything and go at short notice to get a jab

3/ Hang around your local vaccination centre at the end of their operational day. Rather than throw vaccine away, if there is supply left after those with an appointment and those on the reserve list have been seen, vaccination is being offered to any passers-by who have not been vaccinated already. I am presuming that there are reasons that the vaccine (mostly Pfizer in Belgium) cannot be re frozen and it would be a shame to waste it

    Nice pic Prefectdt. Glad to hear Belgium is heading in the right direction. Sending positive thoughts that it continues.


  2. It is not vaccine, its a gen therapie!
    The side effects are extream in compare to all available vacciens, check EMA or Vears reportings to base your decision on real information and not only the propaganda done for it.

    • mRNA vaccines are protein ‘teachers’ not gene therapy. The material in an mRNA vaccine do not in any way interact with nuclear DNA. VAERS lists only reactions in the population vaccinated. All substances introduced into a body have the potential for a myriad of side effects in different individuals. Vaccines are no different.

      The reality is that people use many things with potential side effects, but seem to be obsessed with the dangers of Covid vaccines. It’s like a donut-eating smoker complaining that his arm hurt after a vaccination for something potentially deadly.

    • Thanks Andreas, and I thought that it was just a tracker chip implant from Microsoft


  3. I’m glad to see the numbers are coming down in your corner of the world too 🙂 When are you scheduled to get your shot?? I can book my second shot as of June 14th – they are ahead of schedule I think and are moving up the dates for 2nd doses.. YAY!! though I also think there is a bit of concern over the India variant – apparently one shot only gives you 33% immunity against it.

    (on another note – for some reason I cannot post to your blog from my phone )

    • I had my first shot of Pfizer in May morningstar and I am booked in for my second shot two days after you get yours. Because of my blood condition I was put on the priority list and lucky enough to get the vaccine ahead of the rest of my age group.

      Although I look at blogs on my phone, from time to time, I have never tried to comment on one from the phone. So sorry, I have no idea why you can’t comment on my blog from a phone


  4. nice picture. Glad you have had the first shot, and hopefully you have the second shot soon.
    bottoms up
