Thanks for the positive post re Round1 DPositive and the Covid plan response from the Melbourne crowd. 
 

However as I Have pointed out the likelihood of flu catchment is much much less due to the general population adhering to the Covid safe practices. Try just had been proved by the stats from 2020.

As usual OD your comments re Covid Vaccine and the crowds at the footy Are  at  best Flippant and worst inaccurate and misleading.

1. The total  numbers in the crowd Or the % of Crowd allowed  in the ground are totally irrelevant to the ability of Each person to move about freely.

Your ticket  has your seat no. and you are in a Zone and restricted to that area to purchase food and/ or go to the bathroom.

You cannot waltz freely  into another Zone to speak to an Old crony Or even your Mother in Law!

2. Covid Vaccine 

The provision of Venues for Vaccine In Australia is a Specialised operation with mist GO's not able to handle the rollout in these initial stages.

You asking your GP When you can have the vaccine is basically irrelevant if he is not one of the designated venues for receiving  the jab. 
It is not a shambles that you can't have it at your local GP clinic if they are unable to or are not a Clinic  dispensing the vaccine.

The procedure is to go to the Aust Govt Health website and do the CHECKER test to ascertain what priority you are. Ie 1a, 1b or 2a etc.

Once you get this answer then you can put your postcode in The box and about 5/6 choices Of locations nearby will be on the screen where you may Book for the vaccine once that Category has commenced.

( 1 a and 1 b are priority so far but 2a is getting nearer ).
 

In the future the Covid Vaccine procedure May become like the flu vaccine but we don't know really at this stage.
 

So waiting forvthe vaccine rollout fir your clinic is probably in vain and frankly if you are in either 1a or 1 b category you should be considering getting the jab ASAP for your own safety and your families as well. There is also a second booster to get within 2/3 weeKs or  12 weeks Depending upon which Vaccine either Sfizer or Astra Veneca you received.

It is not the GP's  real role in this procedure to notify all their patients that the vaccine is available unless they belong to a Clinic  that is approved for dispensing the rollout.
 

Hopefully that updates  generally your knowledge on both Covid plans and vaccine availability. 

Yeah good outline.

Just a bit unfortunate that none of the procedures previous procedures advertised by the govt have worked out quite as planned.

Morrison and Hunt have indicated GP without providing enough support. I really hink they just don't get it.

The procedure you describe is fine but I want to see the front line and vulnerable vaccinated before I will worry about me.

i think the Australian population will sort it out for themselves.

I must say the posts nominating me as a president are a true reflection of my considerable abilities.

Since I lack any semblance of humility, I would encourage posters to keep up the good work

Unfortunately, your association with Biff has not helped your Presidency campaign. So we do need to do more work on your PR image. Maybe you can have your alpacas eat more bananas?

Wonder if we get more people at our Anzac game on Saturday night, than the other one during the day?

No chance Mr leg. They will increase the capacity from Sunday.

5 Bananas in a row eaten and consumed,   Refer back to 1965,  how many in a row, top I think then they sacked the head Banana bender,   Indeed what were they thinking !  Fair to say we fell back to earth with a thud. Not sure you should sack the main BB when you win 6 straight or perhaps only 5. It does feel good to walk around in rednblue. 
Richmond, they are cocky, three days more rest, wet night and a hard slog,  just a walk in the park.  Win this and Bananas are unbelievable.   Either way it’s gunna be a hard game.  Go Dees

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr
