in the UK where the vaccinations are progressing at a record rate t
And in Ireland, it's expected that by mid-June, 80% of adults will have had at least their first vaccine dose BUT virologists etc there are saying that although there will be some improvement, mask-wearing etc will have to continue. The general outlook in countries where the vaccine is being rolled out fairly quickly (and sadly Poland isn't one of those), is as follows:
Continuing restrictions on international travel.
Continued mask -wearing.
Re-occurring lockdowns (of shorter duration but stricter).
Increased freedom of movement and socializing within national boundaries.
By the end of 2021 a return to cultural activities and larger gatherings.
However, I see a worrying trend emerging; in Israel, where they plan to re-open cinemas, allow more events, concerts, etc. attendance at such things will require you to be vaccinated. That I don't like, because while I don't object to vaccines in principle, I'm not too sure about this one, having been produced so quickly and without enough information available about possible long-term dangers/side-effects. I wouldn't like to have it myself unless I were in the vulnerable category when I might consider it, and I would very strongly object to the next possible step of making it mandatory.
