sinovac will be approved by the TGA which is massively good news.
States could choose to require boosters for the international students with vaccines that are authorised to be administered in Australia if they have had Sinovac to attend university and the universities may be willing to pay for those vaccinations and facilitate them.
Is Pfizer available in China for a fee? Wonder if people who can afford to study in Australia would pay to get it?States could choose to require boosters for the international students with vaccines that are authorised to be administered in Australia if they have had Sinovac to attend university and the universities may be willing to pay for those vaccinations and facilitate them.
Getting into the country is a very different thing to having freedoms to do things once in here.
Not sure it is. All evidence is showing that this vaccine doesn’t work.
Particularly as the WHO have approved it.Be careful with generalist statements like ‘all evidence’ and ‘doesn’t work’. They are untrue.
Of course it works how well it works is the question and that depends at what point you look at when. Even our vaccines fade, some faster as others as is increasingly being documented.
Certainly the peak effectiveness doesn’t look as high as the ones used locally here, but at the end of the day we are going to be highly immunised anyway ourselves. The anti vaxxers might be concerned but oh well
It was always going to be approved.
Particularly as the WHO have approved it.
I think that only leaves the Russian vaccines?
The Press Release is on the PM's website:
"States and territories will begin this program at different times given their varying vaccination rates but we expect the system to commence in November... We know it has been an extraordinarily difficult 18 months for Australians overseas trying to come home and for Australians with family and friends overseas."
So it's up to the states. November is good. Here's hoping that VIC starts by early December.
Some acknowledgment is nice, but I guess we'll never get them to admit that the border closure was wrong and get an apology.
At this point the universities are desperate to get students back. If they have to pay for things like a booster jab they would do it. Compared to the thousands upon thousands they get from each international student it’s a small cost.The international students should pay for the booster jab, not the university (aka the Australian tax payer).
Disagree, you could use stand alone AirBNB as I understand whish would be classified same as home, or even if you have a home, as long as you can isolate independently to rest of your family (my case) you can. You just need separate bedroom, toilet and bathroom, and not leave there or interact with family.Obviously more details will be released but the 7 day home quarantine obviously only applies if you have a home and I’m guessing only will be allowed if no one else at that home?
Those coming in would still need to do 14 days hotel quarantine?
