  1. On a slightly different tack. There's an interesting story about a bit of a resurgence of polio, a virus that has been all but eliminated. Apparently the oral vaccine used comes from a live virus : "Using genomic testing, scientists were able to trace each outbreak back to a "vaccine-derived poliovirus" — in other words, a strain that originated from the weakened but live virus contained in the vaccine, which was then excreted by someone into the community, where it spread." Full story here on the ABC: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-06-14/patient-zero-polio-re-emerged-children-a
  2. Exactly, they might have left weeks ago. Also there may well be people from NSW who had just returned from a stay in Victoria.
  3. I've never had a flu shot in my life and had very mild symptoms after my covid vaccination so there goes that theory.
  4. From what I have read, wearing a mask is the single most effective thing we can do to limit getting infected, something like 40% effect if my memory serves me. For mine, it's a small price to pay.
  5. Thanks, yes that is interesting. Of course, it does leave out the number of doses we actually have in Australia, which last report I saw was something like 4,000,000. This ABC page has some interesting reading too. (although Russel won't like it as it's probably too political) https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-03-02/charting-australias-covid-vaccine-rollout/13197518?nw=0
  6. yes, the latest updates from Vic Health have daily vaccs and totals.
  7. Would be nice if they could do similar for vaccinations, as Victoria is doing. I really feel the Federal Govt has been at best disorganised and at worst lackadaisical re vaccines. Surely every resident and staff in aged care should be vaccinated by now, not to mention front line staff.
  8. Exactly what I was thinking. All I know is that if it hadn't been for the unions, many of the benefits we take for granted today would not be enjoyed.
  9. My wife and I have appointments for Covid vaccs on Tuesday 30th March. We could have got in on Thursday 25th but had something on. My GP is doing clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I did ring them at 8:40am yesterday when they had just opened.
  10. There is a website https://www.australiansiloarttrail.com/ which has a map and other resources for where to find silo art. They also have a Facebook page.
