I had been looking through the Fed Health Dept reports but only found this out from ABC Media Watch.With two more people having died today from Covid in NSW, it won’t be long until the number of deaths from Covid in the last month will be double the deaths from Astra Zeneca since the vaccination started in Australia. So sad
There has now been at least one confirmed death from the 3rd AZ side-effect - extreme blood thinning. Did anyone see anything official about it?
Also had an interesting morning talking with the press office for Federal Dept of Health:
R - Can you tell me why the weekly Vaccine Operations Centre - Weekly Operational Update - July 19th has not be released yet?
HD - Are you from the media?
R - No, the Federal Shadow minister for health told me to ring you.
HD - We only deal with media questions.
R - Is that what you want me to let the shadow minister & journalists know is your response?
HD - I don't know what report you are talking about, it's probably a NSW Govt report.
R - Actually, the military man in charge of the Federal Vaccine rollout called it the single most important source of information for the Australian Vaccine Rollout and should be used instead of any other source for transparent information on the rollout.
HD - Oh, that report.
R - So do you know why it has been delayed? Typically it has come out on the day or the following day.
HD - No, I have not heard anything about it.
R - What no media has called you?
HD - Not one question.
R - Can you find out when it will be released?
HD - Possibly, but as you are not media...
R - Can you perhaps follow-up?
HD - I'll put you through to the general information line.
R - Don't you want to find out the answer for future questioning as the July 26th report is due today?
HD - The number to ring is 02 6281 1555.
R - But you said you'd put me through to
HD - That's the number, is there anything else?
R No Thank you.
So rang that number and eventually spoke with a switchboard operator. 'The only people I can put through to the Vaccine Operations Centre switch are GPs. Are you a GP?
Some minutes later, after mentioning not a GP, & multiple periods on hold.
Try this email address....
Eight hours later and now both the July 19th & July 26th reports are missing in action.
Perhaps the trend established (and precedent) with 1st & 2nd AZ doses continued or worsened, who knows. The # of 2nd AZ doses was greater than 1st doses.
