LAD Asks: Overwhelming Majority Of Aussies Will Get The Covid-19 Vaccine

Australia is on the cusp of embarking on its coronavirus vaccine schedule and the majority of us are waiting with open arms.

While there has been a bit of distrust in the development and rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, the Australian government is confident that enough of the country will get the jab to create herd immunity.

After polling LADbible Australia readers, it's clear an overwhelming majority of you are keen to see the day where your coronavirus vaccination appointment arrives.

Nearly 70 per cent of the hundreds of people that were surveyed said they will get the vaccine when it's their turn, compared to the 31 per cent who are hesitant for now.

Those who are in favour of the jab said it's necessary to give Covid-19 the boot once and for all.

One person wrote: "I will as I work I'm aged care and want to protect my residents and family at home."

Another added: "Had every other vaccine I've needed in my life and still alive to tell the tale. This is just another I will be getting.

A third summed it up pretty well, saying: "Yes, because I'm not dumb as fu**k, I'm not smarter than epidemiologists."

It's expected Aussies on the frontline and in vulnerable situations will be the first to get the jab at the end of the month and it will slowly filter down from age and level of concern.

Aussies Will Get ‘Vaccination Passports’ When They Get Covid-19 Jab

published at19 days ago

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine are being made in Melbourne at a manufacturing plant for biotech firm CSL.

"We are doing it here, in Australia, right here in Melbourne," Mr Morrison said.

"When you go to your GP clinic or the place that you will go to get your vaccination, you can have great confidence, not just in the vaccine itself but the Australian production process."

There is some concern that the growing threat of the South African and UK mutations of the virus will cause there to be issues with the effectiveness of the vaccine.

CSL is confident it will be able to produce a new vaccine to counteract the more contagious strains.

Dr Andrew Nash, CSL's chief scientific officer, told The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald that switching up the vaccine to eliminate the mutations would be 'quick and easy'.
