    What is the lowest age of a child anyone here would, hypothetically, get vaccinated in the near future?

    I would put the line at about 13 years old, no younger.

    Most of the spread in the current SEQ outbreak is amongst children, more than half are under ten years old.



    We aim for complete contact tracing (including full viral genome sequencing) here, though the link between the index case in international arrival quarantine, and the first Indooroopilly SHS case (a 17 year old girl) remains a mystery. The genome sequencing gives us a clear indication of which international arrival is the index case.

    We have had a full lockdown since 4pm on Sunday 1st, since which time there have only been two potential exposure sites identified (both pharmacies). There are dozens of such sites for the days leading up to the start of lockdown though.

    Lockdown will continue until Sunday, but will be extended if there is the reasonable likelihood that someone was infectious but not isolated in the previous few days.

    Queensland is determined not to end up like NSW, where "Gold Standard" Gladys Binchicken still apparently thinks you can come to a compromise deal with the virus, that allows people to go out to work but not infect others.

    But due to vaccine mismanagement here, I may end up having peculiar technical questions. If I get one Sinovac (or Pfizer) jab, how long must I wait before getting a Moderna jab? I won't have control over the timing: if/when a Pfizer or Moderna jab is available, I must get it on a stipulated day or not at all.)

    I don't know. I've been searching for info, but couldn't find anything specifically about that. Now according to this, it looks like you can get Moderna not long after recovery from Covid. So, it would be like, what, 3 weeks, at most 4 since you got infected, for an average covid case? Probably less, but in any case, since Sinovac is a dead virus vaccine, I think 4 weeks should be fine (conservative estimate). But perhaps a conservative approach is not ideal in a situation like this.

    While there is disproportionate health care issues, a comparison between slavery and requiring proof of vaccination.

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/04/polit...nts/index.html

    CNN —
    After New York City announced people will need proof of Covid-19 vaccination to enter some indoor facilities, acting Boston Mayor Kim Janey likened the rule to the slavery-era freedom papers.

    “There’s a long history in this country of people needing to show their papers,” Janey told CNN affiliate WCVB on Tuesday when asked by reporters about New York City’s announcement.

    Janey then listed several examples of how people in the United States have been asked for documentation in the past, “during slavery, post-slavery, as recent as…what [the] immigrant population has to go through here. We heard Trump with the birth certificate nonsense,” she said.

    During slavery, freedom papers or certificates of freedom were documents that African Americans secured as proof they had a right to move and remain safe from enslavement.

    The media used video of large crowds at past events. The actual event reported on was not very big.

    Mainstream and left leaning media can be just as misleading as the right.
    In other words, the media didn't want to send reporters into danger.

    Hmm, maybe a business decision less than a health one for the other members, since he was at risk of getting infected while not in the higher safety profile of being vaccinated.

    He could be lying or telling the truth. Who knows.
    Almost certainly lying. "Side effect profile"--nope, that's not a reason to not get the vaccine. If there were a legit medical reason it would be an adverse reaction, not a side effect. I won't say it's certain he's lying because there is the possibility his doctor said it would be a bad idea and he misunderstood the why. However, I find that very unlikely.

    The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require a very high technical level to manufacture and are also limited by the supply of inputs. Letting any little outfit manufacture it would probably reduce the number of shots available.

    Do you mean Tourette's syndrome? The Guillain-Barré syndrome doesn't do what you seem to have in mind.

    I see no reason for there to be a lower limit other than for medical reasons--many vaccines have a lower limit because they don't take too well if given too early.

    How wonderfully arbitrary a number. I’ll go with (rolls Yahtzee dice), hmm looks like it adds up to 17.
