The main thing that's helping is that the majority of Europe double jabbed people with both jabs close together. We decided to build immunity between jabs by having longer between the two jabs. Now, their immunity is dropping, ours will drop after 5/6 months but that's where the boosters come in. They've been very effective at widening the gap in the risk of hospitalisation between those vaccinated and unvaccinated. 

This is a very good point and seems to be often overlooked. The UK went against the grain in allowing such a gap between jabs and whether through luck or judgement could conceivably be a reason that we are on, in general, a better course than the rest of Europe seems to be. We also started jabbing earlier if I recall and surely this helped to contribute to us being in a position where cases arenít alarmingly high going into the winter months.

By a trusting approach that relied on the population being sensible &  following the advice & doing the right thing to avoid lockdowns.
That approach would never have worked over here or in any of the more populous countries in Europe.

Like the German health minister today.

I had to wait 15 mins after both my first 2 jabs, have my 3rd next week, standard procedure I thought?

The 15 mins is only Pfizer I think.

Has my third dose of Pfizer last Wednesday and had a flu jab in the other arm, felt a bit shitty Thursday but main issue was sleeping with both arms bruised!

I had 2 doses of Astra Zeneca so it can't be.

I had AZ for the first jabs, no wait. Pfizer for the booster, 15 min wait. I think it's just for the Pfizer. Are you a special case JJ?  Smiley

Exactly this for me, don't drive or do anything for 15 mins in case there was a reaction.
