    thanks for that, nearest to me i see is Cagayan de oro, but it gives a good indication of which the likely vaccine might be here

    UK remains confident in continuing its use of ALL covid antidotes available, while South Africa pauses its Astra Zeneca roll~out.

    I had my first injection today, the Pfizer one, and have been told that I will be called for my second shot in about ten weeks time.

    This was well ahead of schedule, a few weeks earlier than I had expected.

    Nice two-mile walk there, a pleasant chat with nursie, nice two-mile walk home, then I cooked a Sirloin steak with Blue Stilton cheese and Asparagus tips.

    I open the bottle of wine at nine.

    Pleased to see that vaccine rollout is starting in the Philippines.

    Half a million doses of the Oxford Astra-Zeneca vaccine arrived in the Philippines aboard a KLM flight on Thursday evening, March 4.

    https://newsinfo.inquirer.net/140315...s-arrive-in-ph

    Interesting to see that KLM seem to have restructured their flight schedules. Rather than flying from Amsterdam to Manila via Taipei, KL803 and KL804 are now flying via Bangkok.

    They used to fly via Bangkok a long time ago, when I first flew with them.

    In fact my first trip to the Phils back in July 1990, was with KLM... in the smokers section. 700 return, so in real terms, pricier than now.

    I reckon I've had CV19, maybe more than once, but the sort with very mild fleeting symptoms.

    Anyway had my medical practice constantly badgering me by text to take the jab. At this particular juncture, I'm undecided.

    None of us have yet had it on our little island in paradise and we are all still alive also.
    May long it continue and I wish you all luck.

    Well done, lucky chap.

    I reckon 4 to five weeks before I get my second jab, as long as the EU doesn't declare a trade war and confiscate all our (UK funded) vaccine supplies.

    No jabs here...especially for us poriners.

    50 years taxes to the British government, and they still ignore us expats too.

    Just let us die.

    British embassy is only a Visa fee collection agency... They do not entertain British citizens.. Those days are long gone IMO.

    My Brother in law was put in the ground one day after he died as a suspected Covid patient..
    His kids had to sit in my car 30 meters away to witness the event..
    4 days later his so called Covid test results arrived.. Negative.
    The fee for him to be admitted in hospital at a suspected covid ward for the last two days of his life was just over 80,000 PHP.
    The perfect scam as all they administered was Oxygen.
    I personally hope that the so called "doctors" there in that hospital die a pain full death due to the condition KARMA.
    2 Families that I know in similar circumstances have paid in access of 150.000 Peso.. One case for less than a one day admission.
    Lots of cheap Covid emergency Hereditary land for sale...Roll up!

    its a disgrace, as if there isnt enough profit from the vaccine alone, any how it all should be free, seeing as how the virus was given free

    ....................... 's completely understandable ... and it says all the more for your missus's steely determination and dedication, given she was prepared to embark on a lengthy, gruelling period of retraining, in order to follow her chosen profession in the UK.

    When the Chinese-Bat-Virus struck hard last March I was in Quito, Ecuador. Most businesses closed, there was a curfew, and some kind of a ban on local travel.

    I contacted the British Embassy via their website. They provided information and support about evacuation flights and also gave me a "Salvocunducto" (official Government travel authorisation to the airport), and a cover letter, just in case anybody wanted to shoot me.

    I was able to leave on my scheduled KLM flight, it was the last one to leave the city and I even got upgraded.

    The Embassy e-mailed several days later to check that everything was OK.

    Unfortunately, nowadays the pandemic is the norm, nobody cares any more.

    That`s good to hear Dave..Sounds a bit like I remember them operating back in the day.
    I called them in Manila with just a question about Brit passports.. Some young English girl on the other end would not entertain my question or would even refer me to someone that could. Arrogant b***!!
    I swore I would never call them again.

    To be fair,the locals do have a pretty good quality of health care via government run local Municipal clinics and even hospital care.At least in Bohol.
    It`s just that the waiting times can take half a day before they are seen.. (except in an life/death emergency)

    The problem is many of the private hospitals here are run by greedy Chinoy (half Chinese) businessmen.
    Their only priority and main mission is money unfortunately.
    They are loving this Covid 19 business. Never had it so good.
    As part of our bill,they charged us 10K per day for my BIL for special dietary needs for the 2 days he was in there.. He didn`t eat anything because he was semi conscious with an Oxy mask!
    20K !!

    I told the Mrs we should refuse to pay it and spend the cash in one of the 5 star resorts here instead...Nice long weekend of posh nosh and white beaches.

    She paid the 80K because as she said,that without payment,they would not release the body for an immediate Covid burial.
