My covid Jab is booked for 10th June. I had my flu jab early May and when I saw my GP just under 2 weeks ago (The day before we left for Broken Hill) he told me to have it when I got back rather than risk symptoms while I was away.
I was nearly going to make a booking at the local hospital but there was only 24 hours between the availability of the 2. Most of the jabs are being kept for Melbourne, Sydney and the bigger population centres so our clinics are restricted to around 10 a day each (or 30 a day total). At that rate it's going to take a while to get through the 30,000 people in the Echuca/ Moama catchment.

We were not one of the 'flee due to lockdown' brigade. We left home on 21st May (the day before the Cohuna Football match) and entered NSW on 23rd May on a holiday we booked in March. Without us asking the caravan park we stayed at in Broken Hill were hoping they got a cancellation for a cabin before we left to come home on Sunday so they could offer to lengthen our stay as they didn't want us going home to Victoria due to Covid lockdowns and they thought we might be vulnerable. We only found out as we checked out and they apologised for not being able to provide accomodation, nor find any other appropriate accomodation in town as this time of year is their peak season. It was nice to think that they cared
Having lived through a pandemic I now understand all the painting of fat people on couches!

Heard today that the W.H.O. (world health organisation) wantg to or have now stopped giving the different covid strains names from countries, they are now using the Greek alphabet. This is to stop the stigma of giving certain countries a bad name and so they dont feel bad about it all.

Cobbadog,That is the same W.H.O that spent the first twelve months denying that there was a pandemic.
As the younger generation says "Go figure" which I think is an Americanism for "You try to make sense of it."
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

WHO’s first NON-doctor Director-General ‘following intense lobbying from Beijing’
Tedros Ghebreyesus is Director-General of the WHO and leading global response to coronavirus pandemic
He studied in the UK before serving at the top of Ethiopia’s government and was part of hard-left TPLF party
During that time, contributions by China to Ethiopia via various UN programmes increased dramatically
In 2017 he was elected to lead the WHO, amid allegations of heavy lobbying by Chinese diplomats
His response to the pandemic has been heavily criticised, particularly his praise for China’s government

That's fine if they don't want it but unless they do they should be out of a job. Millions around the world are dying. This is not about choice it is about saving lives and arresting the destruction of the economy.

Who are they to tell me I must keep left of the white line or even submit to a licence test before I can drive. There are thousands of regulations that force us to do or not do things for the greater good of the community (in fact ALL laws are predicated on this theory, not always successfully). Even if they made murder a $200 fine offence the results would come nowhere near the damage covid is causing.

Once they have everybody vaccinated hopefully by year's end I am a supporter of the proposal that anyone who consciously refuses to be vaccinated should be subject to numerous community contact restrictions ie no air travel, work in age care or hospitals etc. I bet a lot of the anti-vaxxers are union members who fully support closed shop worksites with only pay and working conditions the issue while refusing to join the community "health union" where life and death and the entire economy are the issues.

I’m not too sure what to believe. Most people have strong opinions one way or another.
