THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER…

Earth is such a gem it has been the scene of armed clashes between ET races warring for its proprietorship

Our planet, Earth,  is 4.6 billion years old. The Solar System as a whole is 5 billion years old, calculated from the time the Sun, known as Sol in astronomy, came into being. Both these ages, that of Earth and the Solar System, are a drop in the ocean compared to that of this Internet-like universe itself. According to the Andromedans, the kindly Aliens from the Andromedan star system who have been communicating with Alex Collier (a human incarnate from that region of the universe), the universe is 21 trillion years old.

If the universe is 21 trillion years old, it means there is a lot that has happened over the ages we do not know. But wise King Solomon did provide us a cue. He says, “There is nothing new under the Sun. What has been will be again, and what has been done  will be done gain.” – ECCLESIASTES 1:9. In other words, events are cyclical: they keep repeating themselves,  not in exactly the same fashion but in one way or the other. Thus,  what is happening today or what has happened in relatively recent times does provide a reasonable glimpse into  what may have happened, say, millions or even billions of years ago. As such, we will always have an idea of what transpired ages before us even if we may not have hard facts.  

Our generation is also fortunate in that ancient records, such as the Sumerian tablets, have surfaced and provide invaluable insights into what happened on our planet not only 6000 years or so ago but well beyond – from half a million years ago when the Anunnaki came to Earth and created mankind to 4 billion years ago when the Celestial Battle took place.

Now, when we say the Anunnaki, the Aliens from the Orion and Sirius star systems via planet Nibiru, “created” mankind, we use the term conventionally, that is, in its loosest sense. The Anunnaki did not create us as such: they fashioned us. They gave rise to Homo sapiens using genetic engineering – the fusion of their own genes with that of an ape-like being known as Homo erectus, a subject we will dwell upon in detail very soon.  Put differently, we were the first humanoids indigenous to Earth, not the first humanoids to inhabit the planet. Before us, there were other beings on our planet.

HOW LIFE IS SEEDED

The seeding of a planet with life forms is known as panspermia. Throughout the universe, this seeding has taken place in two forms.

First, there is the seeding by beings who have come to be known as the Founders. Most pundits of the origins of life mistake these Founders with the Paal Taal, the first beings God, the First Source, created. This is unfortunate. This universe was not founded by the Paal Taal: it was founded by Lucifer and his host of angels, what Christianity refer to as demons. It is not a real universe: it is a counterfeit universe, a make-believe universe much like the cyberspace of the Internet. Lucifer and his angels constitute what we call the Dark Forces. The Dark Forces are the original creators of physical life in the universe. It is they who seeded it.   This seeding by Dark Forces is what can aptly be called Direct Panspermia. In the case of Earth, Direct Panspermia occurred 4 billion years ago when the planet Nibiru smashed into the planet Tiamat and split it into our Earth and the Asteroid Belt. When Nibiru caused this Celestial Battle, it was already crawling with life forms in their earliest stages and these life forms were imparted to Earth. The life Nibiru transferred to Earth had been seeded on it by Dark Forces through scientific means. As we once pointed out, science is the art not of God but of Lucifer and his angels.

Direct Panspermia can also be done by Aliens who are scientifically and technologically advanced. Examples are the Siriuns (from the Sirius star system), the Aryans (from the Orion star system) and the Drakons (from the Draco star system). These Alien civilisations are capable of using meteors, asteroids, and other such small heavenly   bodies to sow life on newly formed or discovered planetary bodies.  They pack the meteors with seeds of organic life of all forms then direct those meteors at the planet. When the meteors crash into the planet, life is seeded there and then and over millions of years this life evolves into sophisticated creatures such as dinosaurs, apes and finally mankind.

The other way in which life is seeded, which has now become much more commonplace, involves transferring fully developed life forms from one planet or several other planets to another. For example, the Martians, supposing they evolved much earlier than us, would relocate several species of animals to Earth and leave them here for thousands of years, after which they would return to assess the stage of development of these animals. In this case therefore, it was not the seeds of life that were planted: it were full-fledged animals.    

Now, you will be aware by now that there is no animal species that stays an animal forever. Every animal ultimately evolves into a humanoid (a being resembling humans but not exactly like us anatomically and physiologically) over millions of years. Dogs, cats, insects, birds, lizards, snakes, fishes, dolphins, bears, rats, rabbits, etc – they all ultimately assume forms that look like we are – with head,  thorax, abdomen, two arms, two legs, upright gait. Facially, they may not look exactly like we are but they will be close. The evolutional blueprint of this universe as designed by Lucifer and his angels is that all creatures should at long last transform into humanoids.

Why must we evolve? Why can’t we just start as humanoids straightaway?  It is part of Lucifer’s strategy to maximally benefit from his manipulation of us. Advanced beings, such as humans, treat animals with varying degrees of cruelty. We even feed on some animals and animals not only feed on each other but some of them can also feed on us.  It is all part of Lucifer’ scheme to create polarity and mutual antagonism amongst creatures for this state of affairs serves to generate an endless amount of negative emotional energy on which he and his angels thrive.

Most of the human population are not aware that when we kill animals, they die with resentment. Animals have a primitive conscience and when they are cruelly killed – like the way we kill cows – they generate a protest hormone in their bloodstream and when we feed on their meat, we ingest that hormone too, with very deleterious effects on our physical wellbeing.  These days, the multifarious diseases that have come to afflict mankind are sometimes attributed to the intrigues of the Illuminati but the greater degree of ailments come from the meat we eat. It is the “ill-will” of the animal that dies a most cruel death that gives rise to certain complex and incurable ailments.  When Jesus said do unto others as you have them to do unto you, he knew what he was talking about. If we don’t treat animals the way we would want them to treat us, our wellbeing will always be shambolic, trust me folks.

A LIVING GENETIC LIBRARY

Planet Earth has two key attributes that make it unique. The first is that it is the most treasured planet in the Milky Way Galaxy. If it were a mineral, it would be called gold, the most prized of all commodities. Earthlings do not know just how special their planet is but Aliens do. There is simply no other planet like Earth in the Milky Way Galaxy: that’s the long and short of it. Second, Earth has been the scene of more wars than any other planet in our galaxy.  Advanced Alien civilisations have fought pitched wars against each other for hegemony over this planet. No wonder it is so jinxed with wars: there is never a single moment when a war is not raging in some part of the planet.   

What makes planet Earth so unique? Well, the collective of civilisations in the Milky Way Galaxy long designated the planet as the galaxy’s Living Genetic Library.  The familiar concept of a library is that of a place where you find all sorts of books on all sorts of topics authored by all sorts of authors. In the case of a genetic library, it is a place where you find all sorts of life forms fashioned by all sorts of civilisations from all sorts of places in the broader universe.

In 2011, scientists postulated that there were 8.7 million species of life on our planet and this was just an estimate. 86 percent of these species have not even been described. And what is more, new species are being discovered each year. In 2015, for instance, new discoveries included the world’s tiniest snail (smaller than the head of a match); toothed frogs; musical spiders (they produce mating songs); and the Ninja Lanternshark (a shark with the face of a Japanese Ninja!). Animal species are just as varied as plant life on our planet.

A little-known fact to the wider global citizenry is that most of Earth’s fauna (animal kingdom) is not indigenous to Earth. Many were brought from other planets in the vast expanse of the Milky Galaxy in their fully developed form and deposited into the Living Library that is our planet to propagate themselves. Both benevolent and malevolent Aliens deposited a life form here, with some of these life forms “authored” right here on Earth through genetic tinkering or hybridisation. That’s why we have poisonous plants as well as well as medicinal or edible plants. That’s why we have wild animals and domesticated animals. That’s why we have fierce and harmless animals.

Earth is what it is not by accident but by deliberate design. It was meant to be a Living Genetic Library. And just as we borrow books from a library and return them at the due time, various civilisations from various parts of the universe come to Earth to harvest life forms, take them to their planets, and have them reproduce either naturally or by way of cloning. However, when Aliens take from our planet, they rarely return what they took. It seems they are not under obligation to return what they borrowed since they are reaping what they sowed.  

Earth was also meant to be a huge pharmacopoeia; a natural drug store replete with herbal cures to every and any ailment. Our own ancestors of several generations back were aware of what a treasure trove Earth was in this respect. They were able to cure every conceivable disease using only herbal medicine: whether it was cancer, heart attack, or a stroke, our ancestors had very potent and efficacious cures for all these maladies. My late paternal grandmother used to tell us that there were only three ways Africans died in the not-too-distant past: through violence, witchcraft, or old age. Otherwise, every natural disease was curable. Even in the case of witchcraft, some herbalists knew how to concoct countervailing medicine that could reverse a disease caused by witchcraft or perform rituals that would neutralise the dark forces behind the disease. Demons which tormented and afflicted some people were driven away not through prayer but through a ritual dance, the performance of certain rites, and the utterance of certain invocative words.

It is tear-jerking that we have now been so taken in by imported faiths that every practice wrought by our ancestors is dismissed as demonic, primitive, or benighted. All traditional medicines they dug up and used are demonic and   all ceremonies they used to perform are demonic. We have painted everything they did with the same brush thanks to inveterate indoctrination by our Western brothers who came with a Bible in one hand and a gun in the other. This Earth, My Brother …

REPTILIANS, HUMANOIDS VIE FOR CONTROL OF EARTH

Aliens who have fought for the control of Earth are in three categories basically. These are Reptilians, Serpentines, and Humanoids.

The Reptilians have mostly been the Drakons from the Draco star system. Serpentines have mainly been Aryans, the beings from the Orion star system. Humanoids have primarily been those from the Sirius star system, Procyon, and Aldebaran.     Galactic wars are seldom fought between planets: typically, they are fought between species. Reptilians have always engaged in war against humanoids, either directly or indirectly, a tone that was set with the first galactic war in the Lyraen star system when Reptilians invaded that region of the galaxy, conquered it, destroyed several planets in a high-tech war, and had the humanoids who peopled that star system scatter all over the universe – a theme we have already discussed.  

Our planet Earth is today dominated by humans, but that has not always been the case. Once, Earth was dominated by Reptilians, who were the first to evolve on the planet from dinosaurs.  Reptilians are in two major categories. There are foreign Reptilians, who are usurpers from other regions of space, notably the Draco star system. Then there are indigenous Reptilians, the strain that evolved from dinosaurs right here on Earth and who are   genetic cousins of the Drakons.   Indigenous Reptilians live under the Earth, in a world inconceivably more sophisticated than the one we have on the surface.

Reptilians have always claimed Earth belongs to them because they were the first to evolve on the planet. But when you are firstborn, it does not necessarily follow that you have sole entitlement to a bequest. True, our primate ancestors, the apes, came much later than dinosaurs but we have as much a claim to ownership of Earth as Reptilians. Reptilians contend that we are not pure Earthlings because our genetics are a mixture of several Alien species whereas theirs are pure. In a way they are right, but it is not our fault that our genetics are a hybrid. We did not ask to be hybridised. We were the victims of hybridisation. If we had been left alone as Homo erectus, we would one day have evolved into pure humans. In any case, Reptilians themselves have hybridised themselves with humans in a bid to reclaim rulership of Earth. The people in position of political, economic, military, and religious power today in much of the influential world are all Reptilian/human hybrids.

Every time there have been high-tech wars between Reptilians and humanoids on our planet, it has been either they have decimated each other or one species has triumphed over the other. In the war that wiped off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, Drakons used a particle beam weapon that triggered a 200-year-long winter on the planet just to wrestle control of the planet from humanoids. On average, however, humanoids have won most of the wars and that’s why we’re a dominant    race on the planet today populationwise. The reason Reptilians live underground is because they were driven there in the aftermath of a war with humanoids (who were not indigenous to Earth but came from Procyon).

Following the destruction that was wrought on the planet by Alien Reptilians, the Aryans of Orion at some stage came to the planet to restore it to its pristine condition, a competence in which they are very well-versed. Since then, Earth (and the Solar System as a whole) has been claimed by Arians as their property. Earth is therefore part of the Orion Empire, with the Aryans being the appointed Guardians of this Living Genetic Library. The Aryans (who evolved from the snake species) are allied with the Siriuns (who evolved from a   Wolfen-Leonine creature) though their alliance keeps blowing hot and cold. However, Reptilians still have hijacked control, either directly or indirectly, of some parts of the Solar System. The planet Saturn and the Moon, for example, are directly controlled by Reptilians.

Appendicitis: Recognising the Signs

29th March 2022

Many a times I get clients casually walking into my room and requesting to be checked for “appendix”.  Few questions down the line, it is clear they are unaware of where the appendix is or what to expect when one does have it (appendicitis). Jokingly (or maybe not) I would tell them they would possibly not be having appendicitis and laughing as hard as they are doing. On the other hand, I would be impressed that at least they know and acknowledge that appendicitis is a serious thing that they should be worried about.

So, what is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix; a thin, finger-like pouch attached to the large intestine on the lower right side of the abdomen. Often the inflammation can be as a result of blockage either by the faecal matter, a foreign body, infection, trauma or a tumour. Appendicitis is generally acute, with symptoms coming on over the course of a day and becoming severe rapidly. Chronic appendicitis can also occur, though rarely. In chronic cases, symptoms are less severe and can last for days, weeks, or even months. 

Acute appendicitis is a medical emergency that almost always ends up in the operating theatre. Though the appendix is locally referred to as “lela la sukiri”, no one knows its exact role and it definitely does not have anything to do with sugar metabolism. Appendicitis can strike at any age, but it is mostly common from the teen years to the 30s.

Signs to look out for

If you have any of the following symptoms, go and see a Doctor immediately! Timely diagnosis and treatment are vital in acute appendicitis;

Sudden pain that starts around the navel and shifts to the lower right abdomen within hours

The pain becomes constant and increases in severity (or comes back despite painkillers)

The pain worsens on coughing, sneezing, laughing, walking or deep breaths

Loss of appetite

Nausea and vomiting

Fever

Constipation or diarrhoea

Abdominal bloating/fullness

Diagnosis

The doctor often asks questions regarding the symptoms and the patient’s medical history. This will be followed up by a physical examination in which the Doctor presses on the abdomen to check for any tenderness, and the location of the pain. With acute appendicitis, pressing on and letting go of the right lower abdomen usually elicits an excruciatingly unbearable pain. Several tests may be ordered to determine especially the severity of the illness and to rule out other causes of abdominal pain. The tests may conditions include: blood tests, a pregnancy test, urinalysis, abdominal  “How do ultrasound scans work?” ultrasound (scan), CT scan or MRI Scan.

Treatment

The gold standard treatment of acute appendicitis is surgical removal of the appendix known as appendectomy. Luckily, a person can live just fine without an appendix! Surgical options include laparoscopy or open surgery and the type will be decided on by the Surgeon after assessing the patient’s condition. Painkillers and antibiotics are also given intravenously usually before, during and after the surgery.

Complications

Appendicitis can cause serious complications such as;

Appendicular mass/abscessIf the appendix is inflamed or bursts, one may develop a pocket of pus around it known as an abscess. In most cases, the abscess will be treated with antibiotics and drained first by placing a tube through one’s abdominal wall into the abscess. The tube may be left in place for a few hours or days while the infection is clearing up but ultimately one would still have surgery to remove the appendix.

Peritonitis – without treatment, the appendix can rupture/burst. The risk of this rises 48–72 hours after symptoms start. A ruptured appendix spreads the infection throughout the abdomen (peritonitis). This is life threatening and requires immediate surgery to remove the appendix and clean the abdominal cavity.

Death – The complications of appendicitis (and appendectomy) can be life threatening, only if the diagnosis has been missed and no proper treatment has been given on time. This is rare though with the evolved medical care.

A degree of common sense

7th February 2022

Here’s a news item from last month you may have missed. In December 2021 the University of Staffordshire announced it would be offered a degree course in pantomime! Yes, that’s right, a degree in popular festive entertainment, the Christmas panto.

We used to have one here, put on by the Capitol Players, though it seems to have fallen away in recent times, but the spectacle is still alive and well in the UK, both in local ad-dram (amateur dramatic ) societies and on the London stage and most of the major cities, these latter productions usually featuring at least one big-draw name from the world of show business with ticket prices commensurate with the star’s salary.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the pantomime format, it consists of a raucous mixture of songs and comedy all based around a well-known fairy or folk tale. Aladdin and His Magic Lamp, Cinderella, Jack & The Beanstalk & Dick Whittington are perennial favourites but any well-known tall tale goes. There is no set script, unlike a play, and storyline is just a peg to hang a coat of contemporary, often bawdy, gags on, in what should be a rollicking production of cross dressing – there has to be at least one pantomime dame, played by a man and always a figure of fun, and a Principal Boy, ostensibly the male lead, yet played by an attractive young woman.

As an art form it can trace its roots back to 16th century Italy and the Commedia Del’Arte which used a mélange of music, dance, acrobatics along with a cast of comic stock characters so it has a long and proud theatrical tradition but you have to wonder, does that really qualify it as a suitable subject for a university? Further, what use might any degree be that can be acquired in a single year? And last but not least, how much standing does any degree have which comes from a jumped-up polytechnic, granted university status along with many of its ilk back in 1992, for reasons best known to the government of the time? Even more worrying are the stated aims of the course.

Staffordshire University claims it is a world first and the masters course is aimed at people working inside as well as outside the industry. Students on the course, due to start in September 2022, will get practical training in the art form as well as research the discipline.

“We want to see how far we can take this,” Associate Professor of Acting and Directing Robert Marsden said. The role of pantomime in the 21st Century was also going to be examined, he said, “particularly post Me Too and Black Lives Matter”. Questions including “how do we address the gender issues, how do we tell the story of Aladdin in 2021, how do we get that balance of male/female roles?” will be asked, Prof Marsden added.

Eek! Sounds like Prof. Marsden wants to rob it of both its history and its comedic aspects – well, good luck with that! Of course that isn’t the only bizarre, obscure and frankly time and money-wasting degree course available. Staying with the performing arts there’s Contemporary Circus and Physical Performance at Bath Spa University. Sounds like fun but why on earth would a circus performer need a university degree?

Or how about a Surf Science and Technology degree at Cornwall College (part of the University of Plymouth). Where the one thing you don’t learn is….how to surf!

Then there is a  degree in Floral Design at University Centre Myerscough. No, I hadn’t heard of it either – turns out it’s a college of further education in Preston, a town that in my experience fits the old joke of ‘I went there once…..It was closed’ to a ‘T’!

Another handy (pun intended) art is that of Hand Embroidery BA (Hons), offered at the University for the Creative Arts. Or you could waste away sorry, while away, your time on a course in Animal Behaviour and Psychology. This degree at the University of Chester teaches you about the way animals think and feel. Cockroaches have personalities according to the subject specs– you couldn’t make it up.

Happily all these educational institutes may have to look to their laurels and try to justify their very existence in the near future. In plans announced this week, universities could face fines of up to £500,000 (P750m), be stripped of their right to take student loans or effectively shut down if they cannot get 60 per cent of students into a professional job under a crackdown on ‘Mickey Mouse’ courses. Further, at least 80 per cent of students should not drop out after the first year, and 75 per cent should graduate.

The rules, published by the Office for Students (OfS), aim to eliminate ‘low-quality’ courses by setting new standards & requiring courses to improve their rating in the TEF, the official universities ratings system. Universities not meeting the new standards will not be able to charge full annual fees of £9,250. Unconventional courses that could fall victim to the new rules could include the University of Sunderland’s BA in Fashion Journalism, where students learn essential’ skills such as catwalk reporting and the history of Chanel.  They have only a 40 per cent chance of entering highly skilled work 15 months after leaving.

At University College Birmingham, BSC Bakery and Patisserie Technology students – who learn how to ‘make artisan bread’ – have a 15 per cent chance of a professional job within 15 months. Universities minister Michelle Donelan welcomed the move, saying ‘When students go to university, they do so in the pursuit of a life-changing education, one which helps pave their path towards a highly skilled career. Any university that fails to match this ambition must be held to account.’

OfS found that at 25 universities, fewer than half of students find professional work within 15 months.  Business and management courses at the University of Bedfordshire (14.8 per cent) were among the least likely to lead to graduate-level jobs.  Asked to comment, the University of Sunderland said it always looked ‘to find ways to improve outcomes’; University College Birmingham said data on graduates and definition of ‘professional work’ was limited. I’ll bet it is! As the saying goes, ’what the eye doesn’t see, the heart doesn’t grieve over’. What a pantomime!

Why regular health checks are important!

7th February 2022

With the world still reeling from the negative impact of the Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19), and the latest Omicron variant (which is responsible for the ongoing global forth wave) on everyone’s lips, we should not forget and neglect other aspects of our health.

While anyone can get infected with corona virus and become seriously ill or die at any age, studies continue to show that people aged 60 years and above, and those with underlying medical conditions like hypertension, heart and lung problems, diabetes, obesity, cancers, or mental illness are at a higher risk of developing serious illness or dying from covid-19.

It is a good habit to visit a doctor regularly, even if you feel healthy. Regular health checks can help identify any early signs of health issues or assess your risk of future illness hence prompting one to take charge and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and other non-communicable diseases (even communicable) can often be picked up in their early stages, when chances for effective treatment are high.

During a health check, your doctor will take a thorough history from you regarding your medical history, your family’s history of disease, your social life and habits, including your diet, physical activity, alcohol use, smoking and drug intake. S/he will examine you including measuring your weight, blood pressure, feeling your body organs and listening to your heart and lungs amongst the rest. Depending on the assessment, your doctor will notify you how often you need to have a health check. If you have a high risk of a particular health condition, your doctor may recommend more frequent health checks from an early age.

Diet – a healthy diet improves one’s general health and wellbeing. It is recommended that we have at least two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables daily. Physical activity – regular physical activity has significant health benefits on one’s body, mind & soul. It contributes to preventing and managing non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers and diabetes, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, enhances thinking, learning, and judgment skills and improves overall well-being. According to the world health organisation (WHO), people who are insufficiently active have a 20% to 30% increased risk of death compared to people who are sufficiently active. Aim for 30 minutes to an hour of moderate physical activity at least four days in a week. Examples of moderate physical activity include brisk walking, gentle swimming and social tennis.

Weight – maintaining a healthy weight range helps in preventing long-term complications like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and arthritis. It is also vital for one’s mental wellbeing and keeping up with normal activities of daily living. Ask your doctor to check your body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference annually. If you are at a higher risk, you should have your weight checked more frequently and a stern management plan in place.

Alcohol – as per WHO reports, alcohol consumption contributes to 3 million deaths each year globally as well as to the disabilities and poor health of millions of people. Healthy drinking entails taking no more than two standard drinks per drinking day with at least two alcohol-free days in a week.

Smoking –Nicotine contained in tobacco is highly addictive and tobacco use is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, many different types of cancer, and many other debilitating health conditions. Every year, at least a whopping 8 million people succumb from tobacco use worldwide. Tobacco can also be deadly for non-smokers through second-hand smoke exposure. It is not ‘fashionable’ if it is going to cost you and your loved ones lives! If you are currently smoking, talk to your doctor and get help in quitting as soon as possible to reduce the harm.

Blood pressure: Hypertension is a serious medical condition and can increase the risk of heart, brain, kidney and other diseases. It is a major cause of premature death worldwide, with upwards of 1 in 4 men and 1 in 5 women – over a billion people – having the condition. Have your blood pressure checked annually if it is normal, you are aged under 40 and there is no family history of hypertension. You might need to have it checked more frequently if you are over 40, your blood pressure is on the high side, or you have a personal or family history of high blood pressure, stroke or heart attack. Your doctor will be there to guide you.

Dental care – eating a low-sugar diet and cleaning and flossing the teeth regularly can reduce one’s risk of tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. Visit a dentist every six months for a dental examination and professional cleaning, or more frequently as per your dentist’s advice.
Blood tests – annual to five-yearly blood tests may be done to further assess or confirm risk of disease. These may include blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, kidney function, liver function, tumour markers, among other things. They may be done frequently if there is already an existing medical condition.

Cancer screening – various screening techniques can be done to detect different cancers in their early or pre-cancer stages. These include; skin inspections for any suspicious moles/spots, two-yearly mammograms for those at risk of developing breast cancer, Pap smear or the new Cervical Screening Test (CST) every five years, stool tests and colonoscopy (every five years) for those at most risk of bowel cancer, prostate cancer screening for those at risk (over 45 years of age, family history of cancers etc.). Discuss appropriate tests with your doctor.

Vaccinations – You should discuss with your doctor about the necessary routine immunisation, in particular; the Covid-19 vaccines, an annual flu shot, a five-yearly pneumococcal vaccine if you have never had one or you are immunocompromised and any other boosters that you might need.
