Covid Jabs FYI

Going to visit my son over east soon, so thought I had better get the jab.  Was out at the airport waiting around the corner for a plane to arrive and saw a sign saying Covid, walked over and there was a big area with about 30 chairs, a couple of security guards and staff standing around but no-one else in there.  I asked what was going on and they said a Covid immunisation clinic, would I like a jab if I qualify.  I passed as I had to pick up someone from the plane.  Got home, rang the Federal Government and after that the State government Covid lines asking for the clinics phone number to make a booking.  They said it doesn't exist.  Couldn't find it on the internet at the government sites, and the State Government guy on the phone had a list of sites but no mass immunisation clinics listed.  My wife said" why don't you go to the showgrounds, there is one there".  Drove to the showgrounds, entered gate 8, walked up to a big building with about 20 or more staff, checked in with about 5 other people and got my jab.  Asked them about it, they have no phone number for bookings, are not listed anywhere and hope people find out by social media.  And no shortage of vaccine.  Its got me stuffed, if they want to inject people, why not inform them?

Wed, 2021-04-14 09:35

 Its a load of crap , my job involves visiting foreign ships in port .I would do approx 3 a week. Apparently i dont qualify for a jab until so called priority cases are finished. Part of my job was transporting sick or injured crew to the doctors, which ive cancelled until after my jab , so costing me shit loads. Go figure eh

 You are a Frontline Maritime worker, Phase 1B which the emails etc are already out for?
Your employer should be arranging it for you.

 Certainly makes you wonder where the priorities like. 

Anyone involved in aged care , patient transport or dealing with overseas people should by rights be eligible.

 I'm suprised that you haven't been offered the vaccine yet Willlo, what Port are you working at? I'm a Port User in Freo, Fremantle Ports contacted us mid-February to make a booking for a jab in the first round. I had my second dose of Pfizer a fortnight ago.

 As Sea Rescue Groups were part of the DFES intake.  Just by way of interest absolutely NO side effects.  And yes the priority list should be revisited urgently. 

Just an observation the blood clots have all occurred in sub 40's......I wonder if they aren't on cholesterol or heart medication as many over 50 are
