When we get to the booster stage next year, then people will need to know whether their vaccination is current. And if they let it lapse without the booster, then their vaccination won’t be authenticated.”

– Two and you’re through, they said. Scott Morrison now says the freedom elixirs wear off like Passion Pop. Oddly, I’ve never met a person whose polio vaccine wore off.

    Whooping cough vaccine wears off.
    I know because I got it again in late 2019.
    And had a booster shortly before my grandchildren were born mid 2020.

  2. calli says:

    Rosie, did the government mandate that you couldn’t see or touch your grandchildren unless you had the booster?

    Of course they didn’t. They didn’t do it to me either, and I had it of my own accord to protect my unprotected grandchild.

    And there is no choice in which booster you wish to take, so it becomes even simpler and morally straightforward.

    And great image! Exactly how I see it.

    Except the snake oil salesman didn’t pen up his prospective customers until they had a dose of what they had already bought.

    So he had that level of decency at least.

    I was just making the point that needing a ‘booster’ which is probably a misnomer isn’t unprecedented.
    Covid is a mutating virus, which like the flu, the vaccine for which also wanes in effectiveness in periods of less than six months, needs to be refreshed.
    That doesn’t bother me.

    Government restrictions and mandates do, of course.
    I am waiting for the day when some fresh new woe takes over.
    Which it surely will.

    I read an abc article from July admittedly that said GPs can give people over 60 pfizer according to the fed health department.
    They’ve also made concessions on ethical grounds for ATSI people.
    Why not write and ask for a pzifer shot via your GP/minister/MP?
    Worth a shot.

    That’s interesting, rosie. And thanks for that information – I will make enquiries.

    It means, therefore, that the PM’s threat contradicted his own health department, which is unsurprising.

    In his words, people over 60 who refuse AZ will “go to the back of the queue”. This was only last week.

    If your doctor and specialist say it’s contraindicated you can.
    And gps are now administering vaccines directly.
    If it’s an ethical issue the precedent has also been set.

    There is this document –
    that claims to show the pre-planned release dates of the variants. Naturally all the “fact-checking” sites debunk it. Which makes you think there’s something in it. One to watch.
    CL, why didn’t you tell us about this excellent stock pick?

  9. Franx says:

    Incorrect to call it a booster. The covid booster-so called is more of the same.
    A booster such as the one for pertussis is is said to have reduced antigens.
    Lizzie might know.

  10. Entropy says:

    Is it a booster if it targets different strains?
    You get the flu shot every year, you don’t call that a booster.
