I got my first jab in May and the second one in June.

 

So far so good, still live and kicking, but with bigger balls (just kidding).

 

At first, I joined a local community waitlist, waited two weeks and heard back nothing, then got it from the grapevine that just go to any clinic in the rural county they'll immediate give you shots.

 

So I went. It worked. Queue for 2 hours, showed ID, signed a form, first jab done. They told me to wait there for 30 minutes before they let me leave, in case of any side effects.

 

Two days before the scheduled second jab, I got a text message reminder. I went 2 days later, this time it was more crowded and a bit less organized.

 

Guess more people heard about the go-to-a-rural-clinic thing.

 

A lot of elder people in the queue. Some young bully came out of nowhere trying to jump queue, people criticizing and taking video by phones, some guy punched him good so had to go back and queue. 

 

Same procedure, same efficiency and the same 30-min wait as the first visit.

 

No bullshit, no politics, no side effect.

 

I'm Chinese and I say, China, well done.

As Covid-19 variants seem to get the upper hand in the race against vaccines, 2 top scientists explain where the world went wrong

As Covid-19 variants seem to get the upper hand in the race against vaccines, 2 top scientists explain where the world went wrong

The initial hopes that vaccine development would be the remedy against Covid-19 are fading, blown up by the spread of the Delta variant. RT asks experts whether this outcome could have been foreseen and avoided.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/aug/02/millions-under-strict-lock...

 

On Sunday city officials called for residents not to leave Beijing “unless necessary”.

... The central city of Zhuzhou in Hunan province on Monday ordered more than 1.2 million residents to stay home under strict lockdown for three days as it rolled out a citywide testing and vaccination campaign, according to an official statement.

“The situation is still grim and complicated,” the Zhuzhou government said.

Beijing has previously boasted of its success in bringing domestic cases down to virtually zero after coronavirus first emerged in Wuhan in late 2019, allowing the economy to rebound. But the latest outbreak, which has been linked to a cluster in Nanjing where nine cleaners at an international airport tested positive on 20 July, is threatening that success with more than 360 domestic cases reported in the past two weeks.

In the tourist destination of Zhangjiajie, near Zhuzhou, an outbreak spread last month among theatre patrons who then brought the virus back to their homes around the country. Zhangjiajie locked down all 1.5 million residents on Friday.

Officials are urgently seeking people who have recently travelled from Nanjing or Zhangjiajie and have urged tourists not to travel to areas where cases have been found.

Aug 22, 2021 04:19Australian PM vows to keep lockdowns until 70% of population is vaccinated as more protesters hit streets despite police crackdown

Australian PM vows to keep lockdowns until 70% of population is vaccinated as more protesters hit streets despite police crackdown

A day after hundreds of protesters were arrested for breaching Covid restrictions, PM Scott Morrison has reiterated that Australia will keep battling the virus with lockdowns until the majority of citizens are fully vaccinated. angry

“You can't live with lockdowns forever and at some point, you need to make that gear change and that is done at 70%,” Morrison stated in an interview with ABC on Sunday.

Less than 30% of Australians over the age of 16 are currently fully vaccinated, and just over 51% have received their first dose, with figures fluctuating from state to state. Asked whether authorities are concerned if Australia's most populous state will be able to hit the mark any time soon, NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said on Sunday that he hopes “we may achieve a reasonable vaccination rate there.”

Lol people who are anti vaccines because they 'don't know what's in them', or 'they're unproven - I won't be a guinea pig' are overdosing on cattle de-worming medicines because they did their ...research... and some idiot politician or Youtube expert assures them it'll work.
