我今天刚接种了第二次疫苗, the nurse said there might be side effects from the second Pfizer vaccine I got today but I haven’t noticed any yet.
I know this is a bit of a running gag, but it’s probably worth pointing out that you’re not actually using any equipment from Chinese or Asian companies in the 5G network.

Huawei got banned so it’s all Ericsson (Sweden / Telstra & Optus) and Nokia (Finland / Voda) gear…

Maybe at best your side effect would be a bit of a Scandinavian accent…

FMD, was half expecting the correct answer of Yarra Junction or Warburton.
Wonder if the Swagman restaurant still exists around up in them sticks.

I hope Cook gets well soon, but also hope the players haven't caught it. Cook was on the boundary during the first day back at training and if I'm not mistaken, was standing next to Doc at one point.
Doc def doesn’t need that in his immune system now as well, fingers crossed the fresh air kept it away from him. There was also a photo of BC having a laugh with Fogarty in close proximity.

Lets hope most of his chats were outside but it doesn’t bode well for admin staff one would think.

Just have to see how it plays out.

On a personal level, I got a phone call from my elderly parents in Vic. My father came into contact with someone who had COVID, but who had been vaxxed. Obviously didn't know at the time. That person has since had milder symptoms.

Both my parents are fully vaxxed, and my dad really cannot afford to get anything that will affect his respiratory system as his lungs are stuffed due to his work environment. My dad spent an evening with his mate, taking him in his car to a function, sitting together, then taking him home. Obviously, my parents were subsequently tested, but no COVID.

Regarding the situation at CFC, if people were doing the right thing (including proper ventilation indoors), things might happen, but risks should be lower. Thinking of everyone, and praying for the best.

Its the transmition thats killing people not the symptoms.

Losing taste and smell for 2-3 days is weak.
Sorry mate but the transmission is just catching the virus. Developing the disease and the complications that result are what kills people.

Most common symptoms:
  • fever
  • cough
  • tiredness
  • loss of taste or smell

Less common symptoms:
  • sore throat
  • headache
  • aches and pains
  • diarrhoea
  • a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
  • red or irritated eyes

Serious symptoms:
  • difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • loss of speech or mobility, or confusion
  • chest pain
