I don't think I would have. I am more than fine with being vaccinated but when there are other vaccines around that are less problematic, and have higher success rates, I would rather have one of those. Having said that I am coming at this from the lense of someone who is lucky that for the most part I don't have to leave the house that often and live in a covid free state. If I was living in America or the uk, or was in a job where I was frontline and mixing with people a lot, I may feel very differently. So yes Affables meh perception is pretty accurate for me too!This makes sense though, the over 60 thing is only out of an abundance of caution. There are people under the age willing to take the risk. I would have, and not to virtue signal. I think while they’ve got supplies and willing people, this was the smart move.
One of the weirder restrictions I have heard. South Australians have been banned from singing in public this week. Maybe someone heard me singing and thought it best for everyone's health to ban that!
We also have that rule in Sydney, along with 'No Vertical Drinking' which means drinking while standing up HAHA!
I don't get the logic involved with the vertical drinking thing can someone explain it to me please? Also when you're seated it's not horizontal drinking you're still vertical in essence so why use such a silly term? Just say no drinking unless seated.yes we have that too - you have to sit down at the pub, even if that means on a bar stool at the bar lol

It’s certainly upped the profile of some politicians who should not be there. Some of them are very poor communicators which is something I thought was a needed skill.I wanna say this whole thing has given exposure to some amazing health professionals that are really calm and great at communicating with media regularly. Often far better to listen to than the politicians!

The Queensland Premier has raised some very valid points in regards to International Arrivals into Australia that warrant a response from the Federal Government.
“ABS data, the Federal Government’s own data, confirms that thousands of people are being allowed to travel here who are not stranded Aussies. These are not Australian citizens or permanent residents. But every week 600 UK citizens arrive in Australia. 500 Chinese citizens. More than 300 Indonesians. More than 250 people from the United States. More than 200 people from the Philippines. 115 people from South Africa.”
If those numbers are correct, then someone has some explaining to do.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and the state’s Health Minister Steven Miles have unleashed a scathing attack on the Morrison government over Australia’s bungled international border policy.www.news.com.au
But even I'm starting to think that maybe locking down when you get one or two cases is maybe a bit too much. Surely there must be a better way than this?
