Seems deputy CMO just saying it's encouraging so far, rather than PM signing up like Oxford. I guess it's the more irons in the fire the better.Has the Australian Government had much to say about UQ? I may have missed that. I know that they are looking at Oxford.
Not everyone is keen on vaccination.Quite high levels of people not wanting it.

And apparently the Russian vaccine OK in Phase 2 trials.From this link you can access the full Lancet article.
Though longer-term study is still needed. Russia is hoping to have the vaccine in use on an emergency basis by early November...www.zerohedge.com
One of the leaders of Operation Warp speed thinks it unlikely for large numbers of vaccine doses being available by the end of the year.
One of the leaders of the Trump administration's “Operation Warp Speed” initiative said he would quit the effort if he suspected politics were affecting the development of a coronavirus vaccine.thehill.com
I’ll twist the response to the question. Yes I’ll get vaccinated when one is available (I cant get vaccinated before one is available )Regarding the initial, OP, question of taking a vaccine, my answer is even more "no" than before. I want to see what a vaccine does to thousands, before taking it myself. Too much politics and pressure right now. Isn't that what usual testing does??
Just to flag the TGA works hand in glove with the FDA, they have very strong bilateral agreements to basically report rubberstamp anything either of them vetts/ researches, approves etc. There are several countries in this agreement with AU and the US... it’s public info.I’ll twist the response to the question. Yes I’ll get vaccinated when one is available (I cant get vaccinated before one is available )
Caveat: it will have to be a vaccine that has been tested sufficiently that trustworthy admins of reputable health authorities advise it is safe and effective that is is both worthy of implementation and registered for use (the current US administration or Russian administration are not in the list of ones I would trust).
Isn't that exactly what you wanted? Everything to be forced open?The vaccine that comes out will only be partially effective, certainly the first generation - it’s just going to be a PR tool for governments to use to force everything open again anyway. The virus will continue to exist and infect, so it’s important we learn how to live with that.
