Excuse yourself but I have no creatures living in my inch deep dust :lol:
There's living creatures almost everywhere.
Miles down in icy caves in the North Pole and even in scalding hot vents on volcanos.
The house dust mite is just one of them things that we live with and it has to have a pooh.
Amazing how we all coexist with them all..

I think there's a half a dozen vaccines in the pipeline and I am beginning to think that the sooner we get everyone vaccinated the better. If we don't this life will be a drag for a long time to come.

There's false info being spread about vaccines in general, if there's not enough uptake then we won't get this herd immunity.

I don't think it's as black and white you know.
In my case I certainly will not have a coronavirus vaccine because I just don't want things inserted in my body regardless of what they are.
I also listen to phone-in radio when I am working and you don't get all that weird stuff like microchips and such - people just don't trust it or don't want it!
As a matter of fact, most people (95% at least) are level-headed on the subject.
Just where the idiots are spouting their ideas I have no idea but I think most people should be able to make up their own mind once they weigh things up themselves.

I'm all for a vaccine if people want it, at least we can get back to some normality if it works.
My choice is not to take it under any circumstances.
I don't want the virus and always stick by the rules so it's like me already immune to it.
We will eventually break it and unless it mutates etc., we will win.

I've heard that vaccinations can start in December :o

It will still take about 6 months to vaccinate everyone in the country.
However, I think you need two vaccinations one month apart so you can double that.

It's good to know and I can't wait because this has been a horrible year all round.
