Yeah and we dont like the Boss much either.

I must say though, on the note of 501s... they seem to be very unsavory people, that is hard to argue but some have lived in Australia all their lives and have mums, dads, wifes and kids there... but still get deported.... harsh.

1 guy moved there when he was like 3 months old with family or something.... out ya go.

they have a choice to take up Australian citizenship and chose not to, bad luck for them - and if they behaved themselves they wouldn't be deported.  We do deport criminals to other countries as well

I live in a regional area as well, but the trouble and strife has an immune issue and I work with a lot of people, some of who travel a lot

If you don’t like my comment, ignore it. If you don’t know how to ignore it, message me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate how.

ditto to that.

I did not know anyone personally who got the bug. 1 person I know lost his parents (in the UK).

Vax? 1 workmate lost his gran to a blood clot 4 days after the jab and a reli who works in aged care didn't lose anyone over the course of 2020 but lost 8 folk after they took the vaccine.

So my "personal experience" is that the vax is more deadly, at least in Australia, than cv19 ever was. Of course, we all have different connections so they will vary. Others will know people who got the bug and not know of anyone who died after the vax. But we all have to come to our own conclusions and decide what is best for ourselves and those around us.

That's why it is incredibly important to inform yourself of the facts and not rely on "personal experience".  While Australias roll out of the vacine is a complete shambles. More people have had the shot than infected with Covid19. That's 900 odd covid deaths v's a handfull of vacine deaths.  The AZ vacine, while not perfect is saving lives. If in doubt ask for the Pfizer or Moderna shot.

had a bit of an uncomfortable night, tender around the injection area, but just generally restless - my GP did warn of that, feel ok this morning other than a slight head ache - he did warn of that too - said it would be gone by days end.

New Zealand:
2645 covid cases. 26 deaths

400,000 vaccinations. 0 deaths.

Over 1000 vaccinated at my wife's work. 100 at mine. Including us of course. No reports of anything remotely resembling serious reactions.

It could happen but the vaccine is massively safer than the alternative.

It's a no-brainer.
