    AstraZeneca banned for all under 60s in Italy due to teen death'https://www.theaustralian.com.au/world/the-times/astrazeneca-banned-for-under60s-after-teen-death/news-story/8222a97df30eeced9c668814c4928d90 Italy’s vaccination campaign has been thrown into chaos after experts banned the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine for the under-60s only days after young Italians were encouraged to take it. The restriction on the use of the vaccine followed the death last Thursday from blood clotting of an 18-year-old woman in Liguria who had her first jab on May 25. 1. The Canadian National Advisory Committee on Immunization recommended back in March that the AZ vaccine is not given to adults under 55. Belgium and France have completely banned AZ for under-55’s. 2. Germany, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Estonia have banned AZ for under-60’s. 3. Sweden, Finland and Lithuania have banned AZ for under-65’s. 4. Iceland has banned AZ for under-70’s. 5. Norway, the Netherlands and Denmark have banned AZ for all ages. 6. The USA FDA has also refused to approve AZ for emergency use based on the information currently before it, and whilst AZ has pivoted to now seeking full/non-emergency approval, it is telling that the US Government is rapidly jettisoning its AZ stockpiles.

    And that is what i posted, so i didn't misunderstand anything. I wonder if it only happens after taking AstraZeneca? or can happen with Pfizer also. I had never heard of Long Covid in Australia so not worried about it myself. But it could put people off as another risk with AZ. Who can say for sure they never had Covid and recovered without seeking medical attention. Would be terrible if they then caught Long Covid from the vaccine. This was Newjez warning to you anyway so take it up with him if you want to argue about it.
  4. Well luckily he is alive, so could have been a lot worse I assume it is a heart attack. This happens occasionally in club level football and sadly sometimes the player dies. Eriksen was very lucky in that he got very quick medical attention.

    Did you read his post where he stated that people are catching it from the vaccine ? How did i misunderstand that ?

    Newjez posted that anyone who has had covid previously and recovered, and later gets vaccinated against covid can end up with "long covid". Unless I misunderstood him, which is possible.

    Don't think anyone knows about that in Australia. Could scare people into avoiding vaccination even more.

    As I've pointed out before, what we do is only half of the puzzle. The other countries is the other half. As per discussions with Singapore, they advised the majority of our population need to be vaccinated, and we said the same to them before any new travel bubble is introduced. For our travel bubble with the UK it will be the same. High vaccination rates in both cases and low numbers of cases. Your utopia where we throw open the borders to all and sundry again is many years away. There will be a few years first of targetted bubbles with key low risk countries.

    My brother is in California. I think he said he got Moderna. Strictly speaking he was not eligible at the time he got it, but he said at their mass vaccination places you had to state you were in a high risk group but they didn't actually verify then. Now it is pretty much open to everyone over there. I think they have just approved teenagers to get vaccinated.

    Yes. I agree. And not a good idea to gamble with the family home.

    Interest rates will stay low for years. Quite risky to sell out of property and rent in the hope of buying back later for less money.

    You're not eligible to get Pfizer if you are over 50.

    I don't think it is a matter of not caring about it. But in the middle of a global pandemic it would be very foolish to rush to opening them too soon. The world needs to get on top of Covid first so I expect 18 months to 2 years is a reasonable timeframe to aim for.

    Victoria has managed it well. No new cases today. And the only covid related deaths are from the vaccine. The country will continue to manage outbreaks for the next year. In 6 months time there will be enough Pfizer for everyone. Catching covid does not mean you are going to die Marisa. As Scott Morrison said for most people it is a mild disease. For 2% it can be very serious
