    Yes, yet oddly enough, everyone is going for Pfizer. I wonder why - I mean Astrazenecas the one where the ex Liberal party staffer is getting the benefit - surely that means the Australian people are getting the benefit too...! Right, surely... It's not like's Slomos taking out own money, using it for his and his mates own purposes, and then saying "be grateful, and vote for me again, after I just put you into lockdown again, because I'm going to give you some of your own money back! Btw - you're not giving my old mate at Astra enough money, so you need to decide with your GP (what blameshifting??!) to take Astra not Pfizer - because that will work better... for you? Uh, no..."

    Admittedly, first dose of astra and pfizer seem to have the same efficacy - its the second dose where Pfizer splits itself as better. So surely... the better approach if we're short of vaccine, because Slomo decided to preference the less effective one.. (we won't forget that next election sunshine. You think we will, but we won't...) is to say "both are equally effective on the first shot, so get the first shot Astra, if you are worried and can't wait for Pfizer - and then have your second shot as Pfizer". Right? Where's the problem there though... Oh, that's right - if you got Astra, you're meant to wait 12 weeks (!!) before you get your second shot. Ah, but it turns out... for peak effectiveness, you should also wait 12 weeks before you get your second Pfizer shot....

    Wednesday's study found that two doses of Pfizer's shot was 88% effective at preventing symptomatic disease from the Delta variant, compared to 93.7% against the Alpha variant, broadly the same as previously reported.


    Two shots of AstraZeneca vaccine were 67% effective against the Delta variant, up from 60% originally reported, and 74.5% effective against the Alpha variant, compared to an original estimate of 66% effectiveness.

    I can't wait for the next federal election. Payback time for this messing up of our lives, coming, Slomo.
