In recent days, several middle-aged citizens have written indignantly about the published vaccine plans, which some even believe that Mette Frederiksen herself has been sitting and making a dark and stormy night. These writers will happily step into the back of the vaccination queue and let the young and hardworking come first.
But this is hardly an expression of sacrificial community spirit. Vaccination plans have been prepared, which Søren Brostrøm has proudly mentioned, and one can agree or disagree with the prioritization, but now they have been made, and it does not help to shout that they should be changed. It takes time and will cause confusion. So if there are some fresh old people who want to make room for the young and productive, then they can just make room. When it’s scheduled to be their turn, they just have to announce that they’m waiting half a year. Nobody really wants that. On the contrary!
This is simply a pseudo-problem, but there is another problem which is certainly not a pseudo-problem. If covid-19 is to be fought, it requires ‘herd immunity’, and then it can do no good that 20–30 per cent of the population are vaccine deniers. They will be a latent contagion bomb at all times, and with their reactionary attitude and lack of understanding of the seriousness of the situation, they keep the disease alive.
It is a problem all over the world that this trumpetist attitude is destroying the fight against covid-19. Here we are facing a tremendous problem, and here the well-meaning middle-aged citizens could show their great sense of community by encouraging everyone in writing and speech to be vaccinated.
Keep in mind that smallpox and polio have been eradicated because in the past people trusted science and were naturally vaccinated. Vaccine deniers are a threat to all of us.

Vaccine passports are the way forward
The community must be reopened as soon as possible, so that it will be possible to go to sports and music events as well as visit exhibitions and frequent local restaurants and cafes.
A vaccine passport opens up the possibility for all fully vaccinated citizens to gather at various events and at the same time secure financial support for the business community and associations.
It is not a question of granting privileges to fully vaccinated citizens, but a question of showing community spirit so that we do not risk so-called super-contagion spreads around society. The queue to get the vaccine is long, however, it sounds like all adult Danes can be vaccinated at the end of June. And then the wait is not so long before most people can meet again at different gatherings.

Joe Biden must show format
Apparently, the Democrats’ focus is more on accusations against Donald Trump than on Joe Biden being able to take office as president in good order.
A future president should be expected to call for restraint among his own.
Then Joe Biden’s vengeful party colleagues can concentrate on Trump later, and perhaps without Joe Biden, who gets plenty of other things to do as president.
Now hope Joe Biden can show format.

In Berlingske January 12, I read a post from a teacher to a 9th grader. She is very concerned that the students at the long-term home tuition due to corona will have an academic backlog. She mentions as an example that her 9th grade has had an extra need to practice spelling, which the teacher believes is essential to keep track of before the young people are sent on to the youth educations. The teacher goes on to say that “it is not enough that they sit with spelling tasks at home and train themselves”.
I have to say I’m shaken: 9th grade spelling! By the time I went to school – probably in the rather insulting “black school” – I had finished spelling in 5th grade, and spelling mistakes were then severely judged. The students had the subject ‘dictation’, where their spelling skills were constantly tested and challenged, and in the first classes letters and spellings were tossed many times, but we learned it.
Today, no one is allowed to tease, and the students usually never have homework for home. Here we see one of the results.
