Posted in: Australian state of NSW to end quarantine for vaccinated int'l travelers See in context

I would take being allowed to travel more than 5km from my home, and visiting friends/relatives in other prefectures, 

and that is exactly what is happening as their vaccination rates are approaching 75%

The Premier for Australia and the Prime Minister for New South Wales are not very wise but at least they haven't thrown the doors wide open yet although they would if they could.

its Premier of New South Wales and Prime Minister of Australia .

theyve saved thousand of lives, theyve recorded one of the lowest infection and deaths per capita in world, and their economy GDP growth has outperformed nearly all 1st world economies in 2020 & 2021.

Not wise? well Id hate to see what you think smart is.

Yes, a poor performance.

and yet Australia has a lower infection and deaths per capita than Japan, their economy has also had better GDP growth in both 2020 & 2021.

sucks when the facts prove you wrong

But I get the best of the best healthcare.

once the vaccine mandate push is found unlawful, the discharge can be upgraded anyway.

hundreds of thousands of military will just be released? I doubt it.

wrong it has already been proven constitutional in previous court cases, more than once.

https://miscellanynews.org/2021/09/22/opinions/is-the-federal-vaccine-mandate-constitutional-yes-and-history-says-so/

hundred of thousands!? you didn't read the article

The navy said that 98 percent of its 350,000 active duty members had begun or completed the vaccination process.

For the U.S. military overall, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Tuesday that 96.7 percent of the nearly 1.4 million active duty personnel had received at least one dose, and 83.7 percent two doses.

Got to love antivaxxers so easy to prove them wrong with facts and science lol

No, no adverse side effects that are off the charts in my case. Just slightly sore arm after the first one and a 0.4 degree higher temperature for an hour after the second one. So don't worry, your testicles will not become basketball size....

same here nothing 1st shot 2nd shot , no temperature , but felt a little down like the start of a cold, lasted about 4 yrs, good as gold after that. Ive actually had a more sore arm from the flu shot

These people are nuts! They’re going to lose more and more people and then when we really need them, we’re gonna be in trouble, this is going to backfire on the ministration so badly, just a few more months before 2022

there are already about 15 different disease that are mandatory to be vaccinated against to join the US military, whats 1 more !?

midterms still over a year away, not that will matter with the pandemic or being vaccinated, 3 or more long years as Biden is your president. lol

The economy in Australia will collapse as it’s bitten the very hand that used to feed them ( China )… Aussies will suffer in the long run!

actually theyve been in a tarriff war for the last 4yrs and even with these Chinese tarriffs Australia's economy is still producing growth apart from 2020. Funny how China is starting to talk to Australia again just after the nuke sub deal and they want to join the TPP. joining the TPP requires all states to remove tarriffs and all states agreeing China should join.

Liberals, the "empathetic" bunch, dont really have an empathetic answer here that I have heard.

Vaccinations do not mean immunity why do so many people think they do...

who does?

once again for those a bit slow

being vaccinated reduces your chances considerably of infection , hospitalisation and death. FACT

comparing infections of unvaccinated to vaccinated then then yes immunity (while not 100%) is far far higher.

vaccines have almost eradicated Polio、 Smallpox Tetanus Rubella etc etc over the last 100yrs.

We have a new virus & vaccines and suddenly some people think their personal opinions supersede the science, even when the science show their opinion are wrong

Posted in: Australia's Northern Territory makes vaccine mandatory for service workers See in context

you can still get and transmit COVID while vaccinated. You can also be unvaccinated and not have COVID.

which everybody know, once again for those a bit slow on the pandemic

being vaccinated reduces your chances considerably of infection , hospitalisation and death. FACT

by being vaccinated it reduces the chances of hospital being inundated with covid patients, gives people that requiring life saving medical treatment, car accident , heart attacks, cancer treatment access to beds when they need them.

There 2 ways out of a pandemic natural immunity or vaccine immunity both require herd immunity over 80% of the population to reach this. Its worked for Polio、 Smallpox Tetanus Rubella etc etc

Worldwide fatality rate of unvaccinated is around 2%, while vaccinated is about 600 times less.

Natural immunity in action!

oh so why are over 70% of the population vaccinated, far more people have been vaccinated compared to infected individuals.

the vaccinations are working and the case numbers are a reflection of that. that doesnt mean we should all let are guard down. millions still not vaccinated or refuse too so another wave is possible and opening Japan up during another wave is just stupidity

The Australian troops have always had problems with discipline. I hope they won’t think the new pact will give them a license to kill.

oh pleeease, youd have more chance of SDF personnel committing suicide from the stress than Australian troops intentionally killing people

Been hearing that since 1998….lol

already happened in Arizona, guess which state most of the population increase came from.

CA is 2/3 democrat they can afford to lose millions on democrats to red states. Just because a person changes state doesn't mean they change their political affiliation, just as Arizona has found out

They are tired of the DEMS hypocrisy and the human waste that litters the sidewalks. Businesses are moving to Republican states!

and yet Musk is still expanding CA giga factory by 50%. wait until TX gets inundated with new tech companies watch the price of living skyrocket. Republican states still have the highest homicides per capita TX is worse than CA.

Since the last batch didn't prevent infection or transmission, will this batch actually work?

more fake propaganda, over 90% of hospitalised and people dying on covid are unvaccinated, statistics shown in dozens of countries

Posted in: Japan secures 120 mil extra Pfizer vaccine doses for next year See in context

1 shot = 72.8%

2 shots = 63.1%

For a total of 172,127,058 shots having been administered.

its clear the vast majority of the adult population are for vaccines which makes the anti vaxxers a minority

in a democratic country

A vaccine so thoroughly tested that you now require a 3rd mandatory jab.

5 billion doses administered worldwide, the evidence is clear, theyre effective & safe , far far more so

than going the natural immunity route, Fact!

Posted in: Japan secures 120 mil extra Pfizer vaccine doses for next year See in context

Why the endless stream of boosters? What's wrong with just 2?

because no vaccines are 100% efficient.

the question you should be asking is .

Why are over 95% of people in ICU and dying on covid unvaccinated?

A fact backed by scientific evidence,

no your opinions dont supersede the facts, but the facts do supersede your opinions

California has successfully addressed all the minor problems like drug use, poverty, wildfires, and now focuses on what really matters.]

drug use well thats a nationwide problem, wildfires, well parks are maintained by the federal government.

when it come to poverty homicides, on a per capita basis CA is ranked in the lower half of the states in the US, states with the highest poverty , food stamps, homicides per capita are nearly all red states. stats easily confirmed on the FBI or .gov websites

“With vaccination, COVID is no longer a dangerous infection," Ho wrote.

and that is the key statement, backed with scientific evidence

“Those of us who are vaccinated can afford to be patient for a while more, and to have a heart for those who are still coming forward to be vaccinated.”

unfortunately no amount of pandering to the antivax will convince them otherwise,

no matter how much scientific evidence is available. recalcitrant pride trumps science everytime, well at least their imaginations.

antivax downvotes sustain me lol
