Well Pfizer started their trial in March, September is 6 months from then, so it seems like their September figure might hold up to a 4-6 month data requirement.So I'm not in the know about this by any means, but the way I understand it is that the FDA is requiring a longer period of follow-up data for kids and it's likely that Pfizer didn't know about it initially. It kind of continues with the idea that Pfizer and the government just aren't communicating with one another very well.
Honestly, I would rather Pfizer publish their findings then let me decide whether or not to vaccinate my kid or wait. If the data showed that there were minimal side effects within a two month time frame, I'd likely go ahead with the vaccine.
Oh, we need luck anyway! Over 50,000 cases today, and the timing of this surge from ~30,000... I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the footie was a week ago. Then there's 140,000 attending Silverstone this weekend.2 days left before the UK goes full send into T1 @ Monza with regards to Covid.
Wish us luck.
I really hope this holds up because have the vaccine made available to kids at the beginning of the school year is going to be way more effective than making it available around winter break. I suspect the government will drag its feet though since there's already tension between the feds and Pfizer.
I don't think he was appointed on merit or suitability for the position. Perhaps everybody else who was available for the post crossed their fingers and said "not it" before Saj could.So Sajid Javid, the man who knows everything about Covid, has got Covid.
Fills me with confidence for Monday.
Bacchus Marsh?I know it was bound to happen sooner or later, but somebody from my hometown in regional Victoria contracted Covid from Melbourne. Now there's a growing amount of exposure sites in the area. We'd had a small handful of cases in the past, but never any spread in the community.
Apparently said person had been in isolation until they received a negative test, though a few days later they got quite sick and tested positive.
Low vaccine supplies/vaccination rates + a generally lax attitude to restrictions due to complacency has gotten me worried, though hopefully this has been a bit of a wake-up call and people will start taking this more seriously.
Or Mildura.Bacchus Marsh?
I think Gladys needs to take a fair bit of responsibility for this with her political point scoring, oh look at us managing it without needing to lockdown like Melbourne.
Yep, Mildura. Keeping a close eye on the exposure sights, I heard from a few friends that the infected person would've been everywhere around town whilst potentially infectious.Or Mildura.
Edit: SA have just changed the restrictions to that region.

Indeed. I just wasn't sure if the post I quoted was celebratory in nature as it said thisThe virus is already spreading in the so called safe haven of the Olympic village. They're testing people positive every day.
and opened with a "lol".Let the spreading of Covid sperad amongst the horny Olympic players
