Sticking points

Morrison Government Accepted Advice from Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization Pfizer should be the preferred COVID-19 vaccine for people under the age of 50 (who have not yet safely received the first AstraZeneca shot). Guardian Australia Explains that the AstraZeneca vaccine displays a warning that people under the age of 50 may face a very rare but deadly blood clot.

Chief Medical Officer at an evening press conference Paul Kelly The incidence of blood clots from AstraZeneca is very rare, averaging 4-6 cases per million vaccinated people, but emphasized that complications can result in up to 25% mortality. ..

AstraZeneca is offered to people under the age of 50 only when it is clear that the benefits outweigh the risks. Kelly adds that given that ATAGI’s advice is based on the current situation in Australia, it could change if another outbreak occurs in Australia.

PS: In the UK BBC explainsOnly Astra Zenaca, limited to those under the age of 30.In this article, the incidence of blood clots is similar to that of contraceptives, but even more “Much bigger” on the pill — The current data does not create a “like for like” comparison.

Vaccine Mile Off

The government is still working on how ATAGI’s advice will affect Australia’s expansion, Scott Morrison We could not guarantee that all Australians would be vaccinated by the end of the year. The 50 million AstraZeneca produced at CSL’s Melbourne plant was the center of supply in Australia. The advice also stated that safety concerns would increase vaccine hesitation and delay deployment.

So ABC Pfizer vaccines cannot be produced locally, as explained in the guide on how the announcement will affect Australian deployment. That is, all doses need to be imported. The Morrison government has only secured enough 20 million doses for 10 million people.Minister of Health Brendan Murphy However, keep in mind that once the elderly care vaccination is complete, it will be easier to bias the remaining doses to people under the age of 50 in Category 1B, such as those with underlying medical conditions.

Currently, only AstraZeneca and Pfizer are approving and supplying in Australia, but Murphy said the third candidate, Novabacs, is in the process of approval, with Australia signing 51 million dosing contracts. I said there is. However, Sydney Morning Herald columnist Rob Harris Please note that it will take at least 4 months for Novavax to arrive in Australia.

In response to last night’s press conference, Dr. Andrew Robertson Presentation State rollouts will change soon In addition, the AstraZeneca vaccine will only be given to people over the age of 50, and reservations for everyone else will be cancelled.

PS: Following the federal state’s return to the states and territories hoarding the assigned drugs, Age Report Victoria had to immerse itself in AstraZeneca’s backup supply to ensure that people with reservations weren’t rejected because federal deliveries arrived consistently late.

PPS: Harris’s work also notes that critics and workers warned the government last year that “there are too many eggs in a basket.” Anthony Albanese Repeated this discussion In his response to last night’s news..

Hearing the death of indigenous people with custody

Finally, ABC report Inquests in North Queensland have heard that an indigenous man who died in police detention on February 10, 2018, received “second-best” treatment from an emergency medical personnel.

Specifically, the man was allegedly not properly evaluated because he was handcuffed on the ground and unconscious in the dark, and rescue personnel instructed police police officers to perform CPR.

The news follows the news that a fifth indigenous people died in custody within four weeks on Monday. Junky Point out tomorrow’s planned public protest days in the countries of Eora (Sydney) and Naam (Melbourne).
