It is interesting that you say "If you are of a certain age". That implies you have to be older to know what Woodgate was really like. It also implies you think a man is beyond redemption from past habits. Once a ***, always a ***, that kind of thing.
I wouldn't for a second condone any of the acts he's been accused of but if what you're referring to is long since past and those that knew of him much more recently have nothing akin to that to speak of, who's to say he's not put that past behind him and moved on from it? Or is it just that he's never really dealt with it publicly that rubs you up the wrong way?
When I mentioned that there were those that did feel it was personal, you did come to mind and I don't know if I've ever really approached you on it in this way before. Still, I don't think Woodgate would be right to say you were even close to being part of the majority voice surrounding his appointment, which is what he suggests in that Carragher interview.
Temperature does make it more complex, but I can’t see why it’s insurmountable. As said above it is ok at fridge terms for 5 days. The vaccine containers are tiny, so size and weight isn’t an issue. A chap in a refrigerated van could drive 2 hours from a deep freeze centre and still have plenty of time to drop off at say 15 doctors surgeries in a town enough vaccine for the next three days of vaccinations. It’s only a bit more demanding ( in the sense of not dropping it off at the front door or throwing it up the garden path) logistics delivery like all the courier firms do daily. A drop off twice a week would be enough to ensure any location authorized to give the vaccinations doesn’t run out. This would also work for medical practices going out to care homes etc. vials could be dropped off at the surgery ready to be taken out the next day.
I think actually organizing enough staff to do the jabs and record them and make sure people are given a second appointment at right interval is more of an issue. Also, I read somewhere you had to stay for around 10 minute afterwards to ensure you had no side effects. If that is the case, then fitting everyone in is more of an issue. I think they will commandeer some large sports halls etc where they can have a lot of people in at once but still isolating from each other.
