Sure we will have to live with it as we did the rest having annual inoculations.
But guaranteed those holiday makers will have hell of a time getting their deposits back!
They should really consider Margate or Mevagissey even Midsomer Norton, the death rate there will
probably be lower than Marbella.imho... 8)
I do feel a little sorry for the typical family holidaymakers. They have been mucked about for well over a year and, while I doubt they‘ll actually lose any money, missing their annual dose of sun, sea and sand for another year must be very frustrating. I’m afraid the (at least) three PCR tests, plus 10 days quarantine will make a foreign holiday too expensive for many...even if permitted.

For me....all I need is the ability to fly :lol: I couldn’t care less that I may have to quarantine on return.

And, having been vaccinated, I’ll happily take my chances with the virus.

Chances are, by the time I do consider returning to UK - for Christmas - it’ll all be over.

I think he was joking, which Xmas is he talking about.
It's getting here or there that is the problem, as they say "it's not the journey ahead that wears you out,
It's the grain of sand in your shoe".

In this case it's mixing with people on trains, planes and automobiles, going anywhere... 8)

Will you still be terrified of being in a confined place with others, once you’ve been vaccinated?

Vaccinated or not I don't like being in any crowded place unless, I'm in control.
Terrified never entered in to it, one could say I'm not 'keen on the hoi polloi...... 8)

That’s the problem when you use Google translate rather than doing Latin at school :lol:

As far as I am aware, having the vaccine will not prevent you from contracting or spreading covid. Therefore I see no reason why it would be necessary for anyone to have the vaccine in order to travel. At best the vaccine will prevent YOU from becoming seriously ill if you contract it.

I don't know of any country where certain vaccines are necessary in order to travel to said countries. Though it's probably wise to have certain vaccines to travel to some countries.

I'm all for vaccines. They have irradicated many disease from this country. The last major one being polio which was a horrible disease to have. Why are we not insisting that visitors to this country have the polio vaccine for example. ?

There is too much speculation going on at the moment.

I doubt many people will be holidaying this year, there's so many people already booking holidays and trying to jump the gun, more fool them.

I see lots of people who have tried to jump the gun complain that thier holidays have been cancelled as far ahead as June now.

As I have said before. There's more to covid than meets the eye. In Time the bigger picture will emerge. Things are not going to be the same again, but that does not mean it's going to be bad. People are always wary of change.
look where we would be now if the luddites had had thier way... Stay positive and keep safe.

@John Landon

You’re right in that there’s no country currently is requiring Covid-19 vaccination for entrants....but it’s being discussed and some airlines seem quite serious about it. Qantas intend to introduce it when flights resume....as does Saga for its cruises. The latter seems sensible....can’t have old codgers falling ill in the middle of the Pacific. Most inconvenient :lol:

Yellow Fever vaccination is required to enter some countries...can’t remember which.....West Africa I recall.

Saga put all the silly old people on floating sardine cans, then they can bury them at sea... 8)
Ps: They all get balconies...Oh! plus we lower our population without affecting the NoS covid death figures.

But are SAGA customers sufficiently compos mentis to give informed consent to a jab?

By and large....probably not.
