awaiting to see if i get knocked around by it.

Got tomorrow off work anyways so not going to be the end of the world if it does
Friend who had it said they had some bouts of fatigue for a few days after the first jab. Then went away. Did you have that?

I'm phase 2A so will be able to get mine in the next couple of weeks. I had my flu jab a week ago in prep.
You better be all jabbed up before my Buck's Weekend!
I plan on turning up coughing and spluttering everywhere.
You should meet us when our bus gets in... you won't be the only one.

CSL producing 1 million AZ doses per week.

We're going to end up with a massive stockpile of this crap

I wouldn't be worried about a massive AZ stockpile. If the government can't get Australians to take it, there's plenty of other counties that will jump at the chance to buy it from us or receive it as a humanitarian gift.

It's a risk decision at the end of the day. COVID effectively doesn't exist in Australia, so it's hard to get Australians to roll the dice with blood clots. We're in the fortunate position that the AZ vaccine is a bigger risk than dying from COVID is.

If you look at a country like India, on the other hand... tell me they wouldn't jump at the chance to get their hands on millions of AZ vaccines. It's an entirely different risk proposition; if there's thousands of people dying per day from COVID you'd sure as hell roll the dice on AstraZenica to prevent yourself from being cremated in the street.

We should be looking at developing mRNA facilities. They'll have future purpose for other vaccines, such as influenza or future pandemics. And there is an evolving role in cancer treatment.

I'm not sure what's happening with the Novovax vaccine. I thought that the Phase 3 trial was done months ago, but they haven't published. They've said in a media release about 2 months ago that it has efficacy above 90%. It's a traditional style vaccine, which makes me think that CSL should be able to produce it.

I think that the AZ is done in this country. There have been two deaths linked to it. Two too many. There are safer and more effective vaccines, and we have the luxury of time. We should be sending what we can to India who clearly need it more than us.

Can someone shed some light for me? I’m confused by the whole international travel thing at the moment.

On the one hand, you have a guy who can fly to and from India for a wedding. Adam Hills has been back and forth between the UK and Aus. I’m seeing some social media influencers are posting about coming and going from the country.

On the other hand, there are people who have been saying they’re stuck overseas, are unable to get home and requesting Government help.

Why are some people seemingly able to hop planes with relative ease, while others are struggling? Are the strugglers waiting for free travel or something? I feel I’m missing something.

I can see the confusion.

Very basically, Coronavirus was designed to completely ruin my life. Everything else just flows from that.

I hope that helps.

The government doesn't want to charter flights to get people home, which in my opinion is perfectly fair.

This has been going on for 16 months now, they had plenty of time to sort something out.

Adam Hills pays his own way, so can do what he pleases. Also it is deemed work for him, as he hosts TV in the UK and is here on tour atm.

This is what I was wondering. Is it people paying their own way vs people waiting for a chartered flight?

If that’s the case, I think it’s fair also, and it doesn’t sound like they’re legit “Stuck overseas”

My mate works in the middle east. Used to do 6 weeks stints. Now does 3-4 month stints because of quarantine of return. Has longer breaks in Aus before heading back. Company pays for travel and quarantine.

Are there any actual restrictions of movement associated with the Sydney COVID thing at the moment?

As far as I saw earlier, anybody can go anywhere, but there's just a whole lot of ancillary rules to do with masks, maximum gathering sizes, and the like.
