And what about the people who can't get vaccinated, or are told by their doctors that the vaccination may be risky to them? Or is it a case of F#ck you Jack, I'll be OK?



This is part of the problem..Wifes specialist " Under no circumstances do not get vaxxed / not safe for you " for months and months > Year later  ..recent Phone only check up [ due to QLD health cancelling our border passes ] , the nurse practitioner says get vaxxed asap .
" Ahh but the specialist has said xxxx " NP "  no its now all changed and you need to be vaxxed asap " ..
Can we speak to the specialist  " He isnt here today "  .
And they wonder why some people get worried .

If they can't get vaxxed that will never change will it?
Same if its risky - that wont change.

So what is the solution?  Stay locked down for ever?

Believe it or not, there are certain social groups who are enjoying not getting vaxxed "because we are being forced" for no reason not to just keeping required numbers down as long as they can as its holding up the X% required for others to enjoy life again.  The lady here at work is one of them as are her family and 'social media' groups she is on.

What do you do with those people? They have no intention of ever getting vaxxed for what ever reason - they could right now.

About time they dropped the mandate.
A terrible word that invites rejection.
Let employers make it a condition of employment, just like working with children checks etc.

Nothing compared to what you guys have, and are still going through in Vic :(
Monday NSW opened up, cases in Grafton went through the roof overnight.
Mayors of councils in the northern rivers have asked the premier that Sydney/greater Sydney people not travel here.
I doubt we can stop it spreading, it will become(as some of you have mentoned) apart of life. Our health/hospital services are at breaking point.
Hmmm, take care.

Hi,
   Some twit, who had been refused twice, came in on the day's last flight, so no return flight to put him on. He then scarpers from overnight quarantine to the suburbs and was found hiding in his mates garage.
The moat mostly works.

Got your wish. Now just a case of working out how to enforce it. From ABC News app -

‘This morning Deputy Premier Paul Toole announced the restart of regional travel for Greater Sydney residents had been pushed back to November 1.’
We've waited 45 years to do this. Now our life will be complete!!

I have no idea how they can enforce it. :(

Crazy the amount of requests in local FB groups where people are asking for properties for sale, they don't want go through agents, cash waiting, can inspect NOW.

We may have been a day too late  in shutting down - due to lack of knowledge.

The thing that is really pi33ing locals off is that the offender hasnt engaged with authorities/contact tracers.  Any information about his whereabouts in the community has been provided by members of the public (who spotted him in said Woolworths).....

SHMBO gave up on shopping, and she was in the supermarket when the flag went up.  She reckons it was packed out within 15 minutes....

Unfortunately the offender will no doubt just get a few fines that he can’t afford to pay anyway and that’s about it. Put his picture up on social media I say, then maybe he may think twice about being such a twat again.

Have heard on the grapevine that he has several interstate warrants in place......  He and his mate also apparently went to a Pub in the suburbs...  His mate was put into home quarantine, which he apparently left for a time yesterday....

This pic is readily available on the Net...

‘This morning Deputy Premier Paul Toole announced the restart of regional travel for Greater Sydney residents had been pushed back to November 1.’

So, the people of greater Sydney get punished because some regional areas are not up to speed with vaccination numbers, which just happens to be the places with the most antivax numbers.

I can see the hesitation of people not wanting an influx of people into their communities, but when those same people refuse the vax, who is supposed to feel sorry for them ?

We(country folk) had vaccines redistributed to sydney for y12 students, that had a huge impact on those wanting to get vaxed.
The Clarence Valley has done a good job of vaccinations, we've also been swamped with Sydney siders migrating here to get out of the S#$% hole.
Sure, Lismore, Mullumbimby, have there anti vaxers, you can't put us in the same boat as them. The majority of us in small villages have been double vaccinated.

Exactly, and most of the time when we have had a covid case is because someone form Sydney has come up here looking for houses/property to buy instead of staying put

It's amazing the number of people crying this as why they are not vaccinated, either one shot or two.   When they cancelled our appointments we made alternate arrangements and before that appointment came up, we were contacted to say our original vaccine shots are back on.   If people wanted to get vaccinated they would have made arrangements to get at least one shot or both.
