Vaccinate or not

I was a little shocked at Alan Joyce (CEO Qantas) announcement that international travelers will be required to have a covid 19 vaccination in order to travel on Qantas flights . The government wanted to have mandatory vaccination but after the bumbling of its release ( it was painful to watch the delivery of that announcement ) they withdrew the mandatory part but it seems Qantas and other business may demand a vaccination in order to use their services. I’m not anti vaccine by any means I just don’t trust this government or a vaccine that has been rushed through. A jab followed by another jab followed by yearly jabs doesn’t sit well with me as I have never had a flu shot or the flu for more than 20 years. Plus I don’t want to give this shot to my healthy 4 year old daughter. She is up to date with all her vaccinations but this covid vaccine is new and not being around for decades like the others. Tuberculosis remains the number one as far diseases go and you don’t need proof of vaccination to travel so what is going on ?

How good is Scomo's Half Price Qld Holidays..Cough! Sneeze...Oops! Sorry 'bout yer Wall.

Battleaxe Chix make up & muscle a massive State Of Origin Vax Pile for the 2nd half.

tbb / swellnet Qldurrz present an World (First) Exclusive!

Qld Police State (Official) Mandatory Covid Vaccine for Health Frontline. (tbb: Where else but Qld!)

April 5 - May 21 UK is mandating Covid Vaccine for Aged Care -Home Workers in June (Summer)
Israel have been trying to mandate vaccine ...( UK / WA also are keen.)
US military are pushing for Mandatory Vax (66%) ....Note low take up is set for US/UK Mandatory
Space programs ( Mandate is in-house!)

Media / AMA / Local Pollies broadcast Fake News that Qld Nurse ranks high on Oz Rollout
World / PM / Health Oz Rollout ranks Qld Frontline Covid Nurses at #28
How is it our Media fail to see that Qld ranks 3rd in our region
PM even ranks Med Staff / Olympians / Quarantine / Border / security higher than Nurses.

Qld /Oz Test/Vaccine Phase 1a (OZ PM Emergency Priority Group Rank 1) PM : Our Home Our Family
1 PNG - Priority Import over Australia of 1m AZ doses > 2 PNG - Priority Oz Made AZ >
3 PNG - PNG PM receives #1 Australian Made AZ Vaccine Shot > 4 PNG - Govt / Health Ministers >
5 PNG - Olympians > 6 PNG - Quarantine > 7 PNG - Border Workers >
8 PNG - Frontline Health / Defence Workers

Qld Vaccine Phase 1a (OZ PM Emergency Priority Group Rank 2)
Regional Council welcomed prioritisation of Torres Strait (21 Islands) Rollout 15th March-24th April
9 Torres Strait Islands Health Council > 10 Torres Strait Olympian's > 11 Torres Strait Quarantine >
12 Torres Strait Border > 13 Torres Strait Frontline Health & Defence Crews '

(Breaky News)
NP Dep D. Littleproud : 'States sit on their hands, do 3/5ths of bugger all... gotta pull their finger out!'
This idiot is a Qldurr...yet he can't respect Qld Humanitarian Units Frontline Rollout.

Qld Vaccine Rollout Phase 1a (Qld Lockdown Priority Group Rank 3)
14 Qld Health VIP's > 15 Qld Quarantine / Security Workers > 16 Qld Border Workers

All neighbouring States 1a Borders / Quarantine / Security would equally rank priority here.

Phase 1a VIP immediately after "Top Priority"
17 National Significance (IOC - Official Olympic Queue jump > finish by start of June)

Phase 1a PNG Sub Group 1.
18 ICU >19 Labs > 20 Ambos > 21 Fever > 22 Tests

Phase 1a Torres Strait Sub Group 2
23 1CU > 24 Labs > 25 Ambos 26 > Fever > 27 Tests

Phase 1a Qld Sub Group 3 (Frontline Medical) - [ *Qld 89% / UK 80% / Israel 80% / US 48% ]
[ US Military 66% / US Prison Guards 70% ]
28 ICU (* Unvaxed Qld Nurse/s) > 29 Labs > 30 Ambos > Fever > 31 Tests
Note *Qld raced well past WR Vaxers for Health worker uptake! Shh! Please don't tell TV land!

Phase 1b Pfizer (Aged Care Patients) [ UK 90% / Israel 90% / Oz 80% (Uptake) / US 78%]
32 >33 PNG / 34 > 35 Torres Strait / 36 > 37 Qld
Patients can't escape / Family Permission is dodgy / If patients are vaxed then staff can dodge vax
Phase 1b AstraZeneca (Age Care Workers) [ UK 45% / US 37.5% / OZ (Low 30-40%) ]
(Israel n/a - only contrived vaccinated patients stats) Think they're hiding security compliance!
Flu Vax Mandatory (vs) Covid Vax Voluntary

#1 Aged Care Covid Deaths
#1 Lock Down - Prisons / Aged care
#1 Proof of Vax - Aged Care Staff
#1 Restricted Entry - Prisons / Aged Care
#1 Poll ( Vax Aged Care) re: Rollout Phase 1
Lowest World Wide Vaccinated = Aged Care Workers?

Aged Care workers get told / tell most lies to vaccinate then nurse untold reactions.
Most are underclass Migrants / underpaid & would never be offered a vaccine until later.
Many don't want one either as they spend all day mopping up reactions.
eg : Patients have Pfizer doses & left over doses are too good for migrant Staff's AZ ranking.
It goes to Management or must be tossed, over 50% Vax is tossed out in Australia
Qld : "Has ready access to a Pool of standby vaccine recipients." > (Exclusive access Age Care pool?)
tbb is not making that up & all said here is widely reported.
Exactly why UK is mandating Aged Care first...( Massive upheaval in aged care logistics & cost.)

Double dose of Good Vax news...thanks for sharing san Guine...frontline [+] response is truly rare!
san Guine earns his timely Pfizer (2nd Dose update) May contain some helpful info...maybe!

Pfizer shots are 2x more infectious than non vaxed up to 11 days!

Israel: Prescribe post 8 days (Immunity)
UK /Australia #1 TGA : Prescribe post 7 days (World's least Vax immunity + least doses 5 / 7 per vial)
These were based on the Original ( Small Pfizer sample Trials).

Israel Rollout (Warning!) Vaxerz were 2x infectious up to 8 days from 1st Dose...ramping Covid cases.
Doctors cases & Aged Care Outbreaks began spiking 12 days also after 2nd Pfizer doses!

Studies showed that Pfizer Vaxers were 2x infectious & must isolate up to Day 14 on both doses.
Recent studies amplify beyond doubt dose 14 days is a highly infectious period... (see below)

13 Mar' CDC responded by extending Pfizer 10 days > 14 days before reaching protective Immunity.
23rd March FDA : Pfizer full immunity is at least 35 days > Day1 > Day 21 + 14 days after 2nd Dose.

[ Factcheck ] Irrespective of Vax (1st / 2nd dose) takes your body 2 weeks to build immunity.
TGA : Wait 14 days between Flu / Covid shots (General). Concern on live vax interactions.
TGA: " 2 week window helps build response"...

World #1 TGA dangerously breaches 14 day minimum by 100% > prescribing 7day Vax immunity.
(Anti Vax Science) = Clear case of Dangerous Political Misinformation results in spreading Covid.

1 April (Update) MHO : "Israel 8 day Pfizer [ Green Pass ] is way too Green!"
Calls for Govt [ Green Pass ] to reflect Rollout immunity Data not outdated Trials.

Pfizer study : 102,150 (Up to 35 Days after 2nd Doses) > 457 Fully Vaxed contracted Covid
82% of all Fully vaxed Covid infections were in the first 14 days after 2nd Pfizer Dose.
Graph clearly shows up to 14 days are not immune...Day 15 is when acceptable immunity kicks in.

Note: 2nd dose Israel review times with record lowering cases.( Study measures dwindling cases)
During an outbreak, these Pfizer cases would clearly ramp fourfold...(That needs attention!)
One can foresee how pfizer Vax can spark a Covid Wave by complacency. (Strange fact, but True)

So how come this ain't Front Page News for Pfizer Rollout Nations? (Sure tbb! Australia! Zzz!)

Oz closes eyes...lifting carpet for broom & putting head in sand.
Oz Phase 1a / 100,000 Frontline Health ( approx 350 Fully Vaxed Oz frontline will contract Covid)
Ok! Frontline can contain & or spread Pfizer vaxed Covid.
tbb has suggested Qld Health roster staff to minimise Frontline Pfizer Vax Outbreak risk.

Israel / Australia will not discuss nor Isolate 2x infectious Pfizer vaxers on frontline settings.
Prof's reported Pfizer's ripe 1st / 2nd dose vaxerz spiked both Israel & UK waves.
Nor will we ever discuss or adopt monumental real life Vax stats into Rollouts...never ever never!
World Rollouts forever pedal backwards to redundant innocuous 2020 Show trial sample bags.
When will Govt's wake up & adopt real time science to counter real time pandemic. (Stop laughing!)

Pandemic Mantra : "Act as though we haven't been vaccinated even if we have!" (Is that a sick joke!)

27000 people in Australia have had Covid. Are you really trying to say that over 8000 of them may have long Covid ( 30 percent of 27000 infected) ? Not sure where these incorrect numbers are coming from but it’s time to put an end to perpetuating them.

It’d be easy enough to put up the facts to reinforce these spurious claims if you felt the need to defend them. Show me the 8000 people in Australia with long Covid or stop peddling myths.

UK Deputy Health : Vaccinated can still pass the Virus on...
Israel Study clearly shows the world that 18% of 457(100k)post vax Cases were viral after 14 days
Clearly these well vaxed folk can contract the virus & are cause for concern for [ Green Pass ]
tbb agrees that more frontline data needs to come thru for a 'low' base rate (Likely less than 1%)
However! The economy has no place for a 1 ticking time bomb in each venue!
Exact figure will be vital in an Airport Police scheme!

Israel Waves 1/2/3 > Shows Pfizer Vax not only fuels Outbreaks but stalls Recovery.
tbb is not arguing one way or another...this is a straight rip & it gets a straight wrap!
3 waves were included as represent daily cases / deaths {RIP} over 1 year.

1st Wave - No Masks
Outbreak- 8th March -22 cases > 5th April - 763 cases = 741 (28d)= Outbreak 26.46 cases/day
Recovery- 5th April 736 cases > 24th May - 30 cases = 706 (49d)= Recovery 14.4 cases day
Low (Lowest Death Rate - 0.57) ( Total Deaths 49 )

2nd Wave -( Masks )
Outbreak -24th May - 30 cases > 27th Sept -1,677 cases = 1,647 (126d) = Outbreak 13.07 cases/day
Recovery - 27th Sept - 1,677 cases > 8th Nov 383 cases = 1,297 (42d) = Recovery 30.88 cases/day
Mid (Lowest Death Rate 6.86 ) (Total Deaths 1,187)

3rd Wave ( The Miracle Vax )
Outbreak - 20 Dec - 956 cases > 17th Jan - 1,993 cases = 1,037 (28d) Outbreak 37.03 cases / day
Recovery - 17th Jan- 1,993 > 21st March - 604 = 1,389 (63d) Recovery 22.05 cases / day
High (Lowest Death Rate- 7.86 ) (Total Deaths- 2,993)
Further on this 100% Benchmark (Vaxed) Peak was higher than world average deaths (No Vax)

Pfizer 1st dose is clearly 2x more infectious as Professors Warn - spiking a massive 37,03 cases day.
Pfizer ramps Covid effect by at least 30-60% any season
Pfizer First Dose is spreading covid as fast as Variants. (Strong Case for isolating 1st dose Vaxerz)

Non Vax (SD) Recovery is clearly 30% faster & way more affordable than with latest best Vaccines.

Vaccine has also clearly increased Covid death Rate...( Bullet Proof has been explained )
Vaxers have slower recovery...( This needs explaining! ) Long Covid / immune Link?
People will wanna know if other illness has a slowed recovery also?

These stats won't surprise many of the crew.
Vaccine Rollout is World's largest ever pilgrimage to most overcrowded viral Hot Spots in History
Less about the careless Vax rollout but more about inviting everyone to vaccinate in covid arenas.
The Rollout will be judged as largest global orchestrated killings in History...not an exaggeration!
tbb Salutes the 1,000's that are dying from Covid vaccinations...lest we forget! {RIP}

PS: Vax is 2x more ineffective, 3x more deadly, slower healing and shit as a miracle cure...Wow!
Just reminding that Pfizer Vax has a higher kill rate than Rolling Average non vaxed covid deaths!
The experts are happy that the vax is killing less now because nobody is game enough to have one.
Israel Vax rate dropped from 1.5% pop/day > 0.2% pop/day.

Record 1,993 cases a day under Vax rollout + WR deaths have yet to lower to pre vax waves 1 & 2.
Pfizer ramped more cases then couldn't restore them to pre vax lows (That's all that's happened here!)
Surely no one is buying this worst in show dodgy miracle elixir.
tbb will be fist to shout out any vax that comes good...not here & not today!... Look Away!

Respectfully, you’ve all gone to a lot of trouble to pen your thoughts here. All views welcome and I clicked on about 100 links today to go back a few pages. A few thoughts;

TBB, we’re you serious in your Ten Commandments of Covid bit, or was that all meant to be facetious. Couldn’t tell, your writing style can be hard to pin a voice to.

If you were serious, can I put to bed the one about there being higher rates of death in aged care in country’s that have higher death taxes. Please. I assume that was a joke but I just couldn’t say.

Ivermectin trials are going on, why do we need to do them here? Locality isn’t really important in science. Perhaps Dan Andrews was busy with other things when Vic was in lockdown and just couldn’t find the time to organise a randomised control trial of ivermectin efficacy as a treatment. Let it go Supafreak. We’ve all been pretty busy.

It seems we have established that the theory is that ivermectin is a treatment, not a vaccine, as discussed way back, good to clear that up. Not a vaccine, no value in taking before infection.

Ivermectin 100% effective in preventing serious illness or death not supported by their supporters own website, which states a 58%, or was it 68% reduction in mortality.

Issuing Ivermectin now without trials is not science. That is called anecdote.

If I get river blindness, or perhaps one of those ringwormy parasites, I’ll probably be asking for treatment with ivermectin, or anything effective against those conditions.

TBB amounting significant number of links to support theory that giving the vaccine leads to rise in Covid numbers. Possible if people getting jabbed are then not practicing good health hygiene anymore, or if free riding non-vaxed people are assuming all is good now and they aren’t practicing good hygiene, including distancing.

Likelihood that any of the vaccines gives you Covid is so close to zero as to be laughable, however nurse or doctor injecting you could become a super-spreader if they didn’t follow protocols. Don’t be too worried about that, they’re pretty damned good at their jobs.

Physical distancing and masks do provide supportive protection but are not complete on their own. People suggesting that distancing has no effect on transmission really don’t know what they are talking about.

Australia has not spent trillions on this. Australia’s annual GDP is about half a trillion. We’ve spent a few billion on vaccinations, which is effectively petty cash for the government. Most expenditure has been on keeping very large companies suitably cashed up and able to pay execs and shareholders bonuses and dividends. Don’t sweat the cost of the vaccine.

If you get a vaccine you may get some side effects. Don’t whinge, just take it, or don’t. On current figures the likelihood of getting a clot is about half of the likelihood of you getting a clot without the vaccine. Interesting that one.

Try to chill a little. We’re still in a good place, comparatively. Recognising that this has more significant implications for TBB than others as he has other treatments going on, which he can’t get to now.

WHO do not have a research lab in Wuhan, that’s a Chinese govt lab.

Blowin, long Covid is real and is affecting very large numbers of people. I’d have them queue up outside your front door, but you know, they’re pretty tired, and scattered all over Australia. Why would you think someone was making that up?

Realistically, there is no secret world government overlordy thing going on. That conspiracy has been going round the world since Roman days, when there was a one world government. It was called Rome. Ever since then, there hasn’t been, but the conspiracies remain.

Good luck out there.

And I am yet to here from anyone about the coincidence of outbreaks occurring before Xmas 2020 and Easter 2021! Is it all a plan to end all long holiday weekends, and therefore penalty rates? Surprised that nobody seems to have made the connection. Is this part of a plan to eliminate public holidays, or religious festivals?

Ah, correlation, my deceptive friend.

And no mention so far, that I could see, that people who experience long Covid are finding relief after getting a vaccine. I’ve read mentions of it on other sites. Anyone hearing about that?

Virtually meaningless in any real sense. If the problem is so genuine why the need for a confected narrative via this study? Note the article you linked never mentioned the size of the study as it would prejudice the reader towards justified cynicism.

Supafreak Friday, 2 Apr 2021 at 8:57pm

Also batfink you may want to check your figures on mortality as maybe the 58% to 68 % your looking at is people with full blown covid which is actually pretty good considering most die when that far gone . All the leading professional doctors that are using ivermectin as treatment recommend early treatment as in first 2 weeks, going home and waiting to see how sick you get is madness. Ivermectin trials aren’t possible in Australia batfink , you need hundreds of cases.

Firstly thanks to batfink for caring enough to notice tbb's hangup....
One reason tbb aligned to Long Haulers was thinking if they could be cured then so to tbb.
tbb revisited Long Haulers & now they're claiming this Fucked up Vax is a miracle cure!

Oh No! Please tbb, do not joke about this....chill & it's too late anyhow...gonna do it!
Let's see...if Healthy Folk get sick on Vax then sick people must get cured by Vax! (Sounds Right?)
Gonna share a better use for this sheer dumb luck the Vax reboots wayward immune systems.
Listen to this.....
"If the Vaccine drives up the antiviral response in a "Non specific way", that would be very good for a lot of Patients, not just long haulers, but also "Cancer Patients" and people whose "Immune Systems" have been "Dinged" in some way."
They're already talking up treatment for Auto immune & Viral Medicated Conditions.
Could help science in ways beyond Pandemic.(We're talking Clinical Studies for weak to take-up Vax!)
(Pretty sure he included tbb in there!) tbb joked that the monkey Juice would be a basher'z cure!
OMG Far out tbb ...can't you see, you're being played...durr! don't care...tbb wants a bash.

Random Hauler'z inhouse Study of [ 68 ] 53% No Change / 32% Improved / 15% Felt Worse.

After typing my shite above, I went down for dinner to watch the news, ABCs Norman Swan reporting an Australian man in his 40s, I think, develops a blood clot, as far as I understand it the first one here.

Then he recommends that AZ vaccine should temporarily not be given to under 40s, if I recall correctly. Counterintuitive, but there you go.

I think those AZ vaccines would be from overseas, I don’t think the locally produced CSL vaccines have got out yet, but I’m sure someone can confirm that. Wonder if it’s a batch control thingy.

Here is an interesting link on long COVID, studies obviously ongoing, but this was for hospitalised patients and the associated lung damage.
Just the tip of the iceberg, Blowin.
Anecdotally, I know 5 people (all non-hospitalised in the acute stage) who have long COVID, that is ongoing symptoms (chronic fatigue, shortness of breath, tachycardia and difficulties concentrating) 8-10 months later, directly related to getting the virus.

On a personal note, 2 days post my second vax, nil symptoms.

I think you’re missing the salient point here. I’m not disputing that long Covid exists, but the fact the way it is always brought up as justification for shutting down the planet when it’s rightly pointed out that the fatality rate of Covid is so small and so demographically specific that there no real reason there why younger and healthier people can’t just go about there lives with Covid no more risky than anything else.

I keep hearing things like “just the tip of the iceberg”but this sounds like wishful thinking as there is no surge of long Covid. There’s articles and studies based on the tiny minority of people that endure it but where is this epidemic that would destroy humanity to the point that we should hide in fear? It doesn’t exist and if it did the evidence of it would be splashed over the headlines instead of the fear-mongering MSM’s need to exaggerate and extrapolate from studies so small that they present no real clinical value.

Long Covid exists and it’s an issue for those who get it but the incidence of it is so small that it’s no reason to close down life as we know it. As I’ve said previously, plenty of people deal with malaria long after they’ve contradicted it but this doesn’t cause humanity to hide in their basement.

I’m open minded here. Show me that long Covid is devastating humanity worse than anything since the Black Death and I’ll join you in being scared shitless. Not like I’m immune to fear, I just don’t feel afraid cause I see no reason to be afraid.

Note that there is mention of long term effects from pneumonia in the article. The planet doesn’t go into lockdown over pneumonia. People aren’t ordered by the government to endure curfew when it gets cold outside. It’s all a matter of assessing risk.

Just went shopping at tweed city , 99.999 % of people wearing masks , amazing to see the results of one positive case , at least it should be a record low flu season again if outbtreaks continue. Don’t know how san G puts up with a mask all shift .

yeah I reckon over 90% mask wearing in the shops I've seen in the Lennox-Ballina area in the last few days.

What is it that you’re railing for Blowin. The roll back of travel/movement restrictions, not wearing a mask, not trusting the vaccination, possibly something else?
There is some pretty strong evidence thrown up above that support the argument that we are not out of the woods yet and long term COVID is affecting a reasonable percentage of people who catch Covid.
I think comparing Covid to say pneumonia falls on deaf ears a lot of the time. Mainly because pneumonia is not transmissible like Covid, rather it is a possible symptom of catching Covid with long term consequences. The concern I would guess with Covid is you or I may take all precautions to lead a healthy lifestyle yet contract a transmissible disease because someone else doesn’t agree with public health advice, much like other public health advice in regard to not smoking, eating healthy and exercise?

The pneumonia one is a bit like the malaria argument. There are precautions that an individual can take to prevent catching malaria. There is public health advice and numerous public health initiatives to reduce the contraction of malaria.
We are just in one that is new, evolving, largely unknown and worldwide. A public health initiative....... I think.

I do think that the Covid passport will be a Trojan horse used to bring in mandatory digital ID which will then be used to coerce and control individual behaviour in society.

Historically, volunteers who trial new drugs and vaccines are monitored for 7 or so years, as to assess any LONG TERM effects of the new drug/vaccine BEFORE the substance is released for community usage. With these covid vaccines , this was NOT DONE. No one can deny this. Pro covid vaxxers when asked about this get their shackles up, and usually start abusing.
But facts are facts. These vaccines are not vaccines for people. They are vaccines for the economy.

These vaccines don't stop people carrying the disease. Why should carriers be alowed to travel?

Only a vaccine passport will stop you carrying the virus :-)

There has actually been some quite positive news recently on some of these vaccines now looking like they prevent transmission even up to 90%
