Ten Million Vaccines – A Million Dreams

Brilliant news on the vaccine front.  10 MILLION!  Is anybody in the club still waiting to be done ?!  It’s also brilliant news that it seems to prevent one from spreading the virus.  That is essential if we’re to get out of this hole.

It made me thing of the song from The Greatest Showman by Pink (also sung by Susan Boyle if you’re not familiar with Pink).  The tune is good and you can end up humming it all day but the lyrics seem quite apt.

I close my eyes and I can see
The world that’s waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one’s been before
But it feels like home
They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I’ve lost my mind
I don’t care, I don’t care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design
‘Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colours fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
Oh a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make
There’s a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day 
The film, the Greatest Showman, is also a good watch!

    Dear Dawn
    Many thanks for your helpful daily updates which are much appreciated.

    In answer to your question ‘Is anybody in the club still waiting to be done ?! ‘, I expect to be waiting for some time yet for my vaccination. The government target for vaccinating everybody over 50 is ‘April’. Given that I’m 62 I hope to be vaccinated in early April rather than late April. Apparently there are c.7.3 million people aged 16-64 ‘with underlying health conditions’. I’m not sure if having had a recent heart attack puts me into this group which might qualify me for a slightly earlier vaccination. However, I really think that all front line workers should be the highest priority and hope that they are all offered vaccinations before me.
    Best Wishes to all club members.
