there's ample supply out there now.

The problem was that although CSL were putting out 1M per week of AZ since mid March they had a further six week approval time for each batch which was only recently explained.

There's now millions of doses of AZ in the system with 1M more being added every week.

Maybe the AFL can just give us the 4 points after initially taking it away from us last week.

Rabid dogs?

Which is why i refuse to take the contraceptive pill

Agreed. The vulnerable categories are pretty slack in getting it done, meanwhile the people not in those categories who are ready cannot. If it was opened to everyone, vaccination numbers would be much, much higher. I'm under 50 and not in health and everyone I know is waiting for the green light, just never seems to come

well days out from the game and it's looking more positive than yesterday at least.  I was sure a lockdown would be called today. Any unlinked cases come in overnight and we'll be locked down

But until that happens, I'm planning to go to the game. the capped capacity is not really an issue as I doubt we would get 20K people at the game given all the covid stuff going on.

Fingers crossed, no unlinked cases. and a big Melbourne win!

Only if you are over 50 or a health professional or have a medical condition.  Also a lot of people mistakenly think they will get a  clot if they get the AZ vaccine when the risk is lower than taking the contraceptive pill (why listen to doctors when you have facebook huh?)

my mum is a nurse in a aged care hospital and only got her first vaccine 3 weeks ago.

A shambles!

The under 40's brigade should be able to get a jab now if there is ample supply.

Agreed. There is no reason they can't allow it and just give preference via an express lane to over 50s who turn up.

That peanut really helped thinngs with one of those 10 million announcements.

Basically telling people over 50 to chill, no hurry to get the cheap, cask wine  blood clot vaccine. Just wait until the top shelf, grange one is available around Xmas. Or next year. Or mid next year.

Anyone would think they are quite happy to ride the whe're an island, we're ok, keep the borders closed, nationalistic sentiment all the way to the next election.

All the while bagging the states about border closures (bad for business apparently - but closing the national border isn't. Strange).

And doing sweet fa about sorting an effective national quarantine response.

Rhyming slang comes to mind.

There is no supply of Pfizer and they won’t give AZ to under 50s due to greater risk of clotting. The issue for under 50s not being vaccinated is supply rather than demand.

I thought you can still get az if you are under 50. If you want to. And really I don't understand why anyone wouldn't

Firstly you can’t because nobody under 50 can get vaccinated unless they fall into one of the A categories of being high risk or a specific worker like healthcare. 
They did make a ruling that under 50s tho are not meant to get the AZ. Those under 50 who had it done before the decision and had no side effects are eligible for their second dose. Again it’s mostly health care workers. 
The roll out for under 50s is meant to start when we get Pfizer or Moderna supplied.

As a health professional, I’m getting very f*****g angry about both the federal government’s half-arsed rollout, not to mention their incompetence at negating false information in the media, and some people’s utter selfishness and lack of community responsibility in ‘delaying’ their own vax for selfish or ignorant reasons. There is only ONE way to reduce the broader societal impact of this virus. ONE. Herd immunity through vaccination. If you can, GET VACCINATED!!!! It’s your civic duty, if nothing else. The Exhibition Building mass vax centre is populated by vaccinators doing sweet F A too much of the day.

Just to clarify - the risk of a clot is not greater in under 50s it is just that the chances of being impacted by Covid is greater for over 50's which tips the risk/benefit scale over.

The risk of a clot from the AZ vaccine for any age is less than that when taking the contraceptive pill

yep just a recommendation. Political (imo) in nature to distract the public as the vaccine roll out was so slow.  It is safe for all comers and if you ask you can receive if illegible

I am 41yo and hanging to get any covid vaccine

If you fall into 1a or 1b yes.

If not, the vic government is pushing to open availability to everyone.

As the federal government should have done from the start. A total joke.

So very, very soon you will have the opportunity to get an AZ vaccination shot.

This from health.gov.au - The COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine can be used in adults aged under 50 years where the benefits clearly outweigh the risk for that individual and the person has made an informed decision based on an understanding of the risks and benefits.

But I am not in any risk factor category so they won’t give me anything. AZ or otherwise.

I don't think that's the case actually. I think, but stand to be corrected, thst informed consent is a blanket statement that atm applies only to people under 50 AND eligible to get a vaccination (1a, 1b  frontline workers etc).

But under 50s will be able to get it here in a matter of weeks I reckon

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
