    Love them. Even when not mandated I wear them.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Government + those who have power of attorney are responsible.
    Government should make arrangements for vaccination available where required and those who are primary care takers need to make sure that they assist in arranging ones.
    Btw, is it Federal govrnment to decides on vaccination facilities in QLD or State one? In Victoria the Vax stations are established/run by state.

    The Morrison government is responsible for providing vaccinations to disabled people. It's also failed to provide boosters: "It comes as new figures, which have not been released publicly but have been obtained by Guardian Australia, reveal 20% of the approximately 25,000 people living in disability group homes have received a booster shot of Covid-19 vaccine."

    It's his fault if they can't get vaccinated due to supply constraints. Where's the nearest vax clinic to those communities? I live in suburban Brisbane and can't get an appointment less than months in advance. I hate to think what it's like for those in remote areas.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    Have the homes ordered those? All the vaccination matters that I have been dealing with appear to be dealt with at State level.

    So who is making decisions to set up vaccination centers? Federal government? I've been seeing releases by Vic Government ''happily'' informting that they are ''rolling out'' vaccination and testing stations.

    Well Vic is geographically much smaller, also they got extra supply early on as the infection numbers soared last year. In spite of this they are not much ahead of Qld overall.

    That's because you are not a resident of either an aged care or a disability care home. Those are controlled by the Federal government. For example, this announcement from the Morrison government refers to aged care homes being provided boosters some time in January 2022!
    The recommended dose interval between a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and a booster dose has now been reduced to 4 months. If your facility has not had a booster clinic, a Commonwealth vaccine provider will contact you to schedule a clinic for January. For those who have a clinic scheduled, your vaccine provider may also call you to discuss bringing the date forward.

    Along with AC, Sprout Never Leaves da Haus without a KN95 mask on at all times..... Luv da Mask n Everyone including Fully Vaxed People Must Wear a Mask in order to Curb da Spread of da Corona virus & the Influenza Virus.This measure along with social distancing are really da best Front/First Line of defense one could have in place & should be their mainline of defense against da spread of da plague. Corona Shots are a secondary line of defense one should have as well in order to fully protect themselves and da rest of their communities from this plague.

    Everyone must understand that da corona shots are secondary in defense cause if da virus get thru your First Line of defense aka da Front Line of defense (da mask n social distancing) then u meh friend be infected n then da secondary line of defense kicks in for u.... This is da main reason Why da US is failing in this war against da corona virus. People Think They Deserve to be able to go out in public without a mask cause they are Vaxed... WRONG !!!! All People Vaxed or un-Vaxed should be Masked up w da bestest mask possible whenever they leave they're homes n go out in public.

    Spending data analysed by ANZ last week indicated economic activity plummeting to levels lower than any other time during the pandemic. "We're now facing economic situations that are worse than if we'd had an actual lockdown," said economist Jim Stanford, director of the Centre for Future Work.
    How bad is it?
    Australiaís consumer sentiment dived this month as worries about the explosion in Omicron Covid cases sent confidence to its lowest January level since 1992, according to the latest ANZ-Roy Morgan survey.

    Believe Meh AC n All that are here at chesschats when meh say that over Half of America have come down with da corona(250 mil).... How Can This Be Sprout :? Its Because da Shots do Nothing on Preventing you From Catching da Plague... Its totally a Wives tale that da shots give u any protection from contracting da corona, just look around we are at 70% of all people statside whom had a shot or 2 or 3... Corona shots just gives u a better chance of surviving da crud not from catching it.

    Today in da Hospital We Are Flooded With Corona Patients on all Three Floors to da point where they are filling up da hallways worse than ever before in da past 2 1/4 yrs.. we Are At 156% over full with no ER/ICU Surgeries at all going on let alone elective surgery like you just got AC. We Got 182 deaths today in Arizona with over 16k new infections & Where is Mr.Prez w all da Help :? oh hes handing out 400 mil mask cause they know that this crud is spreading on da breathes of da vaccinated. oh He Encourages more n more shots but WHERES DA PILLS :?

    Obviously they (top officials stateside) don't want to stop da plague cause all da hospitals in da states are reporting record profits for 2020 n 2021 n 2022... Let Da Good Times Roll Huh :? ... Shots are not stopping this plague at all but they got da cure(pills) but WHERE IS IT :?
