Wear masks a bit more?

They have a natural circuit breaker happening over half term, poor kids.

It would be nice if we could actually get boosters and vaccines for our kids as promised.

Where did you hear that?

PurpleDaisies Wed 20-Oct-21 12:24:11

It’s sajid javid not boris.

Dontgetyerknicksinatwist Wed 20-Oct-21 12:24:54

Hopefully to say he’s resigning. Sadly I don’t think it will be that…

Quartz2208 Wed 20-Oct-21 12:25:27

In that case if it is Sajid that wont be Plan B that would definitely be Boris Johnson

I suspect it will be pushing Boosters - how to get them and the 12-15 vaccinations. They know we are behind now and need to get ahead

Wear a mask but it’s voluntary and I won’t make is compulsory.

It will probably just be about the rollout of the boosters and 12-15vaccines.

IndigoC Wed 20-Oct-21 12:29:19

Suspect it’s to reassure the masses that no there won’t be another lockdown. Should be announcing minor measures (masks etc) to avoid said lockdown but of course not.

My heart still actually sinks at the words "5pm press conference with Boris" 🤣

It's all fiiiiiine. Get out there and spend money. He will not say anything negative yet. He wants half term spending. It will all be fine, don't worry, it's all in the plan yada, yadda.

We are probably 3-4 weeks from alas.

Just sore ear in faith advice about masks boosters kids vaccine etc.

But I predict in a fortnight it will all be law again and vaccine passports rolled out.

PicsInRed Wed 20-Oct-21 12:32:37

Maybe vaccination of ages 5-11? Approval's pending (and expected imminently) on Pfizer for that age group in the US, Canada and Europe. Maybe us too?

They said something on radio about “work from home if you can” but only few weeks ago doing the”isn’t it great get back to the office”. Can’t see it being more than rates going up and “take care” with no clear guidance on how to do that but they have ticked the “done something” box.

Its Javid, apparently its to 'reinforce the winter messaging' Get a booster, vaccinates over 12's, wear a mask in crowded places etc.

Plan B will come in a few weeks and will be announced by Johnson, when it's too late, again.

It’s when it’s a 7pm with Boris that you have to worry the 5pm ones are dribble.

TheFairyCaravan Wed 20-Oct-21 12:38:10

Stop calling him Boris. He’s not your mate. You wouldn’t have said “there’s a press conference with Dave” or “there’s a press conference with Theresa” would you?

That will need the JCVI to look at it. Given they took so long to recommend it for over 12s and only one dose, I cannot see how this could possibly happen here.

Yeah this. Boris is well aware most people aren't around at 5pm to watch but by 7 they're all at home, primed and ready.

Frazzled2207 Wed 20-Oct-21 12:41:35

The government is basically ignoring covid.
They will probably say something about vaccine boosters and teenagers and may encourage us to wear masks more (but not actually make it mandatory so what a waste)

AutumnLeafy Wed 20-Oct-21 12:42:18

Do we always get one on a Wednesday or is this an extra bonus one? Hopefully apologising for the massive mess up in testing in the southwest and explaining what they are going to do to bring numbers back down.
