I'm ever the optimist, I have that airline credit again!

The upside is spending time with adult kids and now I'm an enrolled nurse, so I don't muck around!

It's mid September, may as well wait till after Xmas and new year, I would have gone to Oz for xmas anyway.

Nz isn't going anywhere, but hard on so many I know in NZ as well who can't see loved ones.

It's hard isn't it? I hope it's ok for you to go. So many of my friends are from the UK and being separated atm from families is hard.

Gubbermint seems to be angling to slow the border reopening and change proposed rules it announced a few weeks back. However they've been most insistant about the elimination strategy remaining in place.

I'll believe it'll work when I see it. It seems absolutely certain to me this will become endemic and then we'll all forget about it and move on with living our lives.

Its probably because so many people still need to be vaccinated in New Zealand, rather like here in Queensland. We'll only open up when we've exceeded the 80% vaccination rate, especially for our indigenous population; and older children are protected too.

I'm actually ok with that but I can understand the frustrations of those who need to leave for personal reasons.

So now we've had to plea with other countries for their Pfizer supply

But, the comedy circus said we had plenty for everyone?

Wait a minute, about the Astra Zeneca?

Makes sense, I'm glad you're getting Novavax too. It will be interesting to see how they're going to work out the timing of the combined influenza and Coronavirus vaccine, assuming that flu seems to have more seasonal peaks.

Shouldn't be any issues. We've delivered right around 4m vaccinations which is about on-plan for early-September. It's about now that the vaccination rate should be ramping up again actually and slowing into October as we do any stragglers:

The daily press conferences are the gift that keeps on giving - first we had Hipkins and the 'Spread your legs' faux pas and now we hear that sex between hospital visitors and patients is a 'high risk activity' , potentially.

It'd be a high risk activity if Matron caught them at it

I wish Oz's press conferences were as entertaining as yours!

I know. Brilliant.

I see Gladys has cancelled hers - I guess by now just lost for words and no idea what else to say or do.

indeed, indeed it’s just so sad the Govt here have been caught asleep at the wheel in this ‘year of the vaccine’ after last year’s success,

In the daily self congratulation and sneering podium sessions no mention that despite this supposedly ‘world leading vaccine roll out’ , we’ve only this month moved one off the bottom of the OECD standings in % double jabbed, above Costa Rica and in sight of Mexico, with Spain lending us some vaccines to ensure we don’t run out.

With the Aussies committed to opening up with 70/80% fully vaccinated, it’s difficult to see how we can hold out any different.
