  1. First dose Biontech, second dose Moderna?

    I think Jeba is correct, I can't see a doctor going off label, if there is an approved treatment available.
  2. They will have no problem with a second opinion. (Assuming we are talking about an opinion and not a second set of MRI scans or similar.) Not sure what happens when you try and get an 8th or so...
  3. Triple nationality permitted?

    I don't know - some people are trying to be helpful here by pointing out the applicable law and the correct procedure how to handle things. That's not nonsense. There are a number of threads/subforums on this forum which cater for 'banter', maybe you'd be better off on one of those <shrug>.
  4. Triple nationality permitted?

    At least you admit to getting a kick out of spouting  nonsense on the internet :-D
  5. If you are mainly worried about not catching Covid, get your first shot now and never mention it again. I know people who got vaccinated in Russia (Sputnik), didn't get it recognized and just got 2 shots of Pfizer "in the West" and no one was any the wiser. This does not constitute medical advice,  but given that e.g. the UK government recommends three shots for anyone over 50, this is what I would do *personally* (I'm 49 1/2). But then I've had Covid and two shots (in that order).
  6. 3G in Restaurants?

    LOL. Which bit about "VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur following vaccination. Healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public can submit reports to the system. While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness. The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. In large part, reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases. This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind." is it you don't understand ? Honestly you could delete all posts that use VAERS raw data as an argument against vaccination and nothing of value would be lost.  
  7. 3G in Restaurants?

    I was in Munich at the end of the of August and pretty much every where they wanted to see something -- usually just the cert and no ID,  but I reckon there are few people around carrying a QR code that isn't theirs. (I mean someone would have to give it to them in the first place, no?)
  8. 3G in Restaurants?

    Toddlers aren't frightened of people wearing a mask (source: masked interactions with way too many toddlers).
  9. 3 people refused boarding with Easyjet

    If you have two, always use the one referring to the second shot.
  10. German women and femininity

    On the other hand I have been dying my hair on and off since I was 13. Do I have to stop now that I hit 50 (two years ago it went pastel pink by accident - my teenage daughter thought it was awesome ;-) if I want to claim I am ageing naturally ? (Which incidentally I don't, but it's the principle that grates.)
  11. Dual Citizenship British/German Passport

    By dualing ?
  12. What's the issue with dual nationality?

    And the fortunes of religions do not ebb and flow over the millennia ? Pull the other one. Ask the priests of Jupiter how the get on these days ? Or the Spanish Inquisition. I mean no-one expects the Spanish Inquisition, right ? Edit:Typo
  13. a problem in my digital registration

    I would more think it was probably a problem of the file type (pdf/jpg/png etc) or the file size (i.e. unusually big).
  14. German Einschulung vs. American 1st day of school

    Book pricing for library type purchases (which schools are) is different from end user purchasing.  E-Books come with a license agreement and certainly the public hand can not be seen violating this. Unless there is a librarian on here who can offer a concrete insight I don't think you can use Amazon end user prising as an example for anything. The replacement cycle for (physical) school books often coincides with an update to the material, so e-Books (apart from the licensing) are not a one off purchase either as they need to be updated as well. Working tablets suitable for school use are more than 150 Euros and they break too. You need a reasonable size, and to submit homework, you ideally need a keyboard. Or you can resort to the "write it on paper and upload a photo" strategy my daughter's school employed to get around this, but then you need (usually paid) software for the teachers to be able to mark the work. Plus security updates etc etc. It's do-able (as the last year has shown), but non trivial. I though MM was working in the computing trade, but I might have gotten that mixed up with someone else, so I am a bit surprised at the 'electronic is easy'  statements -- I'm a (at least part time) system administrator and I can decidedly state that this is not easy.
  15. German Einschulung vs. American 1st day of school

    Just to say, my offspring's secondary school (one of the largest in the country) in the UK hit the same problems wrt internet based teaching -- they were relying on children being able to access learning materials from on site and it turns out that especially in households with more than one child, one device just wasn't enough. People worked off mobile phones, but what if mum and/or dad needed their phone for work ?  Also as a regular user of public libraries I can attest to the fact that computers providing internet access at the library seem to be used quite extensively. I  work at one of the more elite universities in the UK, and when I enquired after a student who had  dropped out from online teaching, she told me her internet connection at home wasn't good enough and she had run out of data for that month. So this is not an exclusively German problem.  Also my child has lockers at school and a lot of electronic books, but by the time she's carried all her work books (the ones for writing in) and the odd bits of paper based learning materials home her rucksack is quite heavy and we invested in a proper one (from an outdoor shop) at some point. I wish they had Schulranzen here, it takes the pressure off looking cool while ruining your back :-S
