It can be argued that, if you get the vaccination program done, it doesn't really matter so much what else you screw up on... only the nutters (not you Don) doubt that vaccination is the way out of this.
I'm extremely grateful... and proud... to be a double jabbed Englishman, supreme effort from all involved, let's not forget it.
Nor forget what a bloody hash the EU made of theirs through their own ridiculous inertia, then excessive bureaucracy, compounded by jealousy, spite, and spreading of misinformation that completely backfired on their own subjects. Shame on them.
But I am shocked at how badly Oz has done.

One of the problems (amongst many) is Astra Zeneca of which there are good supplies of here. Because Oz has done really well (mostly) at keeping Covid out by putting up a wall, particularly WA, almost no-one has had Covid. I don't know anyone over here who has had it. Unfortunately this means that you are currently more likely to die from taking AZ than you are from Covid. If there's one thing Aussies do know about it's gambling odds, so no-one wants to take it.

Vaccination is one method ,as is quarantine / lockdown and mask wearing in public congested places to reduce the infection rate to a manageable level for the health service .
After all, the vaccine isn’t 100% effective for all people. We still got “double jabbed” people going into hospital with covid.
most of the vaccines have had side-effects of one sort or another, personally in my situation with an underlying blood clotting disorder I have not had the jab , I know the needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few , and can even understand the current easing of restriction in England , most of the at risk have been offered and have had both jabs and those that are left the young, are less likely to become seriously ill .
Summers here, so follow government advice and get out in the fresh air and get a few miles in on them bikes :yup:
