  1. AZ's initial testing was done on a short interval for second dose. Subsequent testing was conducted with the 12 week interval producing a superior immune response, hence the current recommendation.
  2. Well done on getting out there and giving it a go, Ian. I know I'm not telling you anything you don't know, but 100 milers are such a different beast to something like ironman. It's all too "easy" when having a bad day in ironman to just back off and cruise it home within the 17 hours. Walk most or all of the marathon, avoiding injury, collecting a medal and throwing it in the bottom of your sock drawer. There's a much larger potential for big problems in a 'miler', and those problems are way more likely to materialise much further from home. You can't just walk it in for 80 or 100km
  3. ATAGI begs to differ regarding the benefits of reduction in transmission and weighting of risk management with AZ. Weighing up the potential benefits against risk of harm from COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca (health.gov.au) Individual and societal benefits of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca.... Broader benefits that are not shown in these simplified scenarios include: • protection against non-severe COVID-19 and complications such as ‘long COVID’ • protection of unvaccinated close contacts of vaccinated individuals • protection of family and community from preventin
  4. Peter, you both truncated my quote to remove context and totally failed to understand what I wrote. Go back and read what I wrote and give it some considered thought re the lag time with second doses. You should find I'm correct.
  5. Chris, what's your band's name and when are you playing? I'd be interested in coming to hear you play.
  6. You're making a very large assumption there. All those guitars wouldn't come cheap.
  7. Not the one, but thanks for posting. Worth a listen, for me anyway.
  8. Not everyone's opinion is equally sound. You only have to look at this forum. There was an excellent interview on ABC radio with an Australian bat virologist about a year ago. Unfortunately I can't recall his name, but I'm keen to track the interview down. He had spent considerable time conducting his field work in China and had either visited or worked for a period at Wuhan Institute of Virology, (can't recall which). He was sure of the covid's original zoonotic transmission occurring outside the lab and was considered and cogent in his reasoning. Most people have no con
  9. I don't see any value with setting a firm figure (either vaccination rate or date) and giving false hope if it's possible it will be changed later. Particularly since reopening it's likely to be vary from country to country. I think the primary message should be vaccination (safety, efficacy, necessity, speed, benefits, etc). And yes, among those benefits is easing of international travel restrictions. It should certainly be heavily promoted as it's a great incentive for many, but not with a promise that mightn't be delivered. It would be, after all, a promise contingent on what happens
  10. Published in Nature in 2015. A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence | Nature Medicine Collaboration of 15 authors, including scientists from the US, Switzerland and China, (both affiliated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology). And yes, international research teams do, (or at least have up until early last year), work out of the Wuhan lab. 30 March 2020 Editors’ note, March 2020: We are aware that this article is being used as the basis for unverified theories that the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19 was engineered. There is n
  11. Simple hypothetical question for anyone on this forum. With the benefit of hindsight and all else being equal, (eg. comparable job/income, family with you, no relocation costs or effort, etc), if you could have spent the last 18 months in other country in the world, which would you have chosen? Similarly, if you could choose for the next 18 months?
  12. I I think it's too early yet to predict how well a post-vaccine society can function with covid circulating. As much as as you like to trumpet the ideal of visiting Disneyland without a mask, we're still to see how well (or not) the US, the UK or similar countries are functioning or suppressing covid in their unvaccinated populous. Covid case, death and hospitalization rates adjusted for unvaccinated people - Washington Post The governments' (Federal and states), should be heavily prioritising and promoting vaccination programs to ensure we maximise the number of Austra
  13. No, Peter, the 2023 date isn't a projection from our current vaccination rate. It is a projection from our AZ vaccination rate in late March, (when we were only vaccinating around 5000 people total each day), combined with Pfizer rates from two to three weeks ago (prior to Pfizer rollout being opened up to new cohorts in many states). Hence the predictor doesn't take into account any increases in levels of either vaccine we've seen since then, let alone any which are likely to happen in the future. The locally manufactured AZ has been the principle vaccine supplied in Aust, so that s
  14. Actually, don't even bother posting the link. Even the slightest bit of thought will tell you why that date is bullshit. Just don't post crap.
