    No. What you do when it comes to being vaccinated DOES have an impact on others. If you can't see that then you do not understand the sciencs.

    Dunning-Kruger comes to mind.

    I 100% don't believe insurers require masks.

    We can agree to disagree on this point.

    I just enjoyed a holiday in Greece. In order to do this, without a mass of hassle, I had to prove I was jabbed, and wear a mask.

    No hardship, I felt.

    You do talk some rubbish occasionally.

    Lots of problems that are not related to obesity are dealt with by the NHS.
    You could of course look up the information.

    Health matters: obesity and the food environment - GOV.UK (

    "The costs of obesity
    Failing to address the challenge posed by the obesity epidemic will place an even greater burden on NHS resources. It is estimated that the NHS spent £6.1 billion on overweight and obesity-related ill-health in 2014 to 2015.

    Annual spend on the treatment of obesity and diabetes is greater than the amount spent on the police, the fire service and the judicial system combined."

    NHS Funding and Expenditure (

    £130.3 billion in the 2018/19

    I dont know why the vaccine has been hailed as a protector of people around you when it does nothing at preventing infection or transmission.
    It only helps the person who becomes infected to be less seriously ill or help to stop them becoming overwhelmed and dying.
    Our home based business has been stuck in shielding since the pandemic start because immunosuppressed are still very much at risk from serious illness or death even after 3 jabs (it offers very little or no protection) but still people don't get it that been in a room with double or tripled jabbed people offers no further protection than the beginning of the pandemic so we have to stay away.

    The only way to sure fire way to protect each other are masks, hand washing, plenty of free moving air indoors and distance. Making sure staff are double jabbed will help the person from getting very ill (as long as not CEV) and stop the length of time they are off sick but don't think it is doing a good deed protecting visitors as the main reason.
