    Scomo over 60years age get Pfizer in arm & tell people over 60 years to get Astrazeneca jab . hypocrisy

    It’s such a disgrace that under 50’s in Lake Macquarie can not have Pfizer, all we hear is ‘Get vaccinated, get vaccinated’ then things will improve. Meanwhile it’s impossible to get Pfizer. Shame how this has been handled right from the first week of the Sydney 2nd outbreak.

  4. About time government announced the truth. This now a deliberate act. People need to be jailed. The premier has lied through her teeth throughout this latest outbreak and should be held to account.

  5. Mate, I’ve had 2 shots of Astazeneca and all is great no issues. They believe now that the Astazeneca is the best one as it gives you more immunity so I believe that I got the better deal not Scomo. Go figure.

    It seems we ARENT…IN THIS ALL TOGETHER. For the common good means we do what we can OURSELVES to prevent exposure to ourselves, family AND all others. The Premiers of each State ARENT WORKING TOGETHER or with the Federal Government. The opposition Labor Party are spending their time trying to create uncertainty, distrust in Scott Morrison, its political. We should all be doing OUR BEST in this crisis to concentrate on the immediate problem… encourage vaccination, to protect ourselves, reduce the risk. Get back to a new normal, if required, wearing masks, practising good hygeine, distancing where possible and co-operating with police, health workers, staff in stores anyone providing a service to the community. If you choose not to THEN SHAME ON YOU.

    • Yes we should be ALL endeavoring to ensure the safety of others.
      I would suggest that the stores who are not ensuring all people are registering their presence on entry and instead waiting to check at the checkout are more worried about their profits than the welfare of their customers and staff.

  7. How do u know what Scomo was vaccinated with?

  8. There just trying to save our lives, I am over 50, and had the Astra-Veneca shot as there was no supplies for Pfizer, which buy the way, Pfizer owns Astra-Veneca, I am still alive and have not had Covid. Cheers everyone, I’m alive, I’m alive,

  9. Still to this day 9th Sept 2021 I can not get a Pfizer appointment ANYWHERE on the coast I am 37 and won’t be able to return to work when everything opens up. What a joke central coast have also done the TIME in lockdown the same as Sydney but we are all forgotten on the coast when it cones to Pfizer!

  10. I’m starting to feel as though Australia is becoming 7 individual countries, definitely not United as one country

  11. What is happening is the same as it has always been…over 60 (and I am 68) only have the one vaccine while under 60 have a choice of three…no matter what you would like us to
    think and believe..we are not in this together(Team Australia BS)..with the out-right untruths, fake speaches,half truths and lies from our glorious leaders…the fact is the vulnerable always get screwed.The Labour party is only doing what the Liberals gave done before..Slowmo..late to the fires..late to the vacinnes..late to quarantine..late to have a plan for us and late to support Australians… think carefully next year when you can all decide.

  12. Hi I’m 61 do want the vaccine but only a phyzer or Moderna seen a close friend die from Astrazeneca and another one with horrendous side affects for 2weeks it’s just not Australian that I and half a million others are denied the safest and highest immunity vaccine these people are dictating who lives and who dies

  13. I’m 50 on 20 October & had the AZ vaccine with zero side effects. Looks like I’m going out for dinner & drink after all on my 50th…I’m no wanna be prisoner

    Astrazeneca is own by Both a British and Swedlsh companies. Note:mRNA deliver RNA information to cell to enabled the.manufacturer of antibodies AZ uses a modified virus to the body with a coroner spike molecule that the body can see and create antibodies. The carrier virus is commonly used to carry other vaccine to the body all over the world. And has been the standard model for 45 years with little issues

    Peter, loved your (1037 this am) comment re Slomo….late for everything except Father’s Day flight from Canberra to Sydney! I wonder what his kids thought.
    He has to slow-go

  16. If planning to open up whilst cases are rising really does not make any sense. So all this time we have had these restrictions in place was a waste of time and resources when we could have carried on with life, learn to live with the virus which I am sure no one wants to catch. Absolutely pointless what we have been through, and even though double dosed as they say will not stop us from being restricted as we will now be living in a yoyo society.

    Got my gab and nothing happened to me I’m all good fit as a fiddle

  18. I had Pfizer at gosford hosptial.the one thing that isn’t mentioned in regard to vaccination is the sheer relief. I didn’t realise the weight of fear I was carrying around since covid came to town. It is completely lifted now. I feel so much happier, freer, and back to my pre covid frame if mind. The threat of pain suffering and death isn’t awaiting me around every corner. The people I pass in the shopping isles are no longer my potential executioners. To me they are now just people again not covid assassin’s. Getting the vaccination is the one of smartest things I have done. I would happily get az or Pfizer if I had my time again. Now we just need to tighten boarders until the jury comes in on whether they are effective against MU.

  19. It would have been Phizer because at the time AZ was only available for over 70s

  20. I like eggs!

  21. Wake up Labor. We are crying out for some decent leadership. You have the opportunity to take some proper policies to the next election. Instead you seem to have chosen to be Clayton’s Liberal. I will be surprised if the Libs do not win. A bit of ticker needed by Labor. This appalling Government will be foisted on us again with Morrison (how this bloke is so popular is beyond me) approaching Tony Abbott’s incompetence our Prime Minister again.
