Sounds like here in South africa ,our government also dragged their feet,so far only a small percentage of health workers have received a vaccine,members of our corrupt government and not one citizen has received any vaccination whatsoever.Scumo is blaming the overseas suppliers for not supplying Australia with enough doses.
Whilst this is probably true (I know some EU countries were holding up some supply, but was resolved a week or so later), the reality is Australia dragged its heels with the vaccine roll-out. Russia started vaccinating in September, The US, UK, Canada & most of Europe in December and Turkey & the UAE in January.
The USA signed and secured their vaccines from Astrazeneca in May 2020. Australia didn't sign an agreement until September 2020, and by that time a majority of other countries got in before us.
We were supposed to begin in February, and have 4 million people vaccinated by today. We have 600K vaccinated which equates to 2.4% of our population. By comparison (either fully or partially vaccinated):
- The USA has vaccinated 45% of its population (147.6M of 328M people)
- The UK has vaccinated 46% of its population (30.9M of 66.6M people)
With the exception of providing job keeper/job seeker, Scumo and the Federal government have done fuck all during the pandemic. Absolutely fucking nothing. The Premiers did everything - some better than others.
Scott Morrision is the most incompetent PM this country has ever seen. His hopes of capitalising on the pandemic and calling an early election have been paused because he knows he has zero chance of winning if we had to vote today.
In a separate decision, the European Medicines Agency said it would list the blood clots as a “very rare” side effect of the vaccine.www.theage.com.au
Australia should follow. UK are going for the Pfizer, Moderna and potentially Johnson & Johnson alternative. I think we should look into Novavax.
Hope those symptoms wear off fast. Keep us posted as to how you are feeling.Had my 1st jab yesterday 4 pm
Very restless night
And woke up feeling like first niggling flu onset
Bones aching,, aching all over
Kept getting chills, needed heater
Feel kind of weird, spaced out zombie
But really not too bad
Next jab in 3 months, and apparently I am already developing anti bodies and less vulnerable
