    DR we need to be mindful of whether using individual anecdotal experiences to explain macro health issues is a great idea. I'm glad your friend who's surviving cancer is surviving cancer, and I hope your mother is going OK.

    Yes it's nothing new, the challenge was keeping it in the body as it was ejected pretty quickly (my memory from talking to a scientist at ACDP).

    Edit : And what your thing says

    AstraZeneca was recommended for 60+ only as younger people have stronger immune systems and are more likely to overreact. The Queensland Uni vaccine bit the dust only because vaccinated people falsely tested positive for aids, but it didn't make anyone sick

    Immune responses are short term, the articles below explain that no vaccine in human history has produced side effects beyond the first two months. It is of course a good throwaway line for anyone not wanting to be vaccinated as no-one can fast forward time to prove them wrong

    So many experts on WOOF. I am 70 yo with a number of health issues. My various drs advised me to get the jab. I did. I feel very comfortable with my decision.

    If you don't like the policy, don't play

    The AFL has released its Covid-19 vaccination policy, which, “in general terms”, will require all AFL and AFLW players and football program staff to be vaccinated before the start of their respective seasons.

    Outlined in the policy, formed in conjunction with the AFL Players’ Association, is the requirement of all AFL players and football program staff to be fully vaccinated by February 18, 2022.


    Those who, without good reason, do not comply with the policy will not be able to attend their club or any AFL premises to either train or play.
    FFC: Established 1877

    Premierships: AFL 1954, 2016 VFA - 1898,99,1900, 1908, 1913, 1919-20, 1923-24, VFL: 2014, 2016 . Champions of Victoria 1924. AFLW - 2018.

    Exactly. Think I will leave it to those with knowledge, including my BIL, who is a viral disease specialist rather than some random people on a forum. I am comfortable getting vaccinated and also comfortable getting further jabs where necessary. If I wasn’t comfortable getting vaccines that have been scientifically developed and tested how the hell do I explain my desire to pop a pill or two in my younger days that could have been manufactured by anyone.

    I have no issue if people don’t get the jab and I certainly don’t have any issue with any organisation, business, community group etc refusing entry or not allowing participation for those whom are unvaccinated.

    Superstar?

    AFL: West Coast Eagles superstar Jack Darling banned from training

    West Coast Eagles star Jack Darling’s playing future is in doubt after his failure to comply with the AFL’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate led him to be banned from training with his teammates.

    Regardless of the government regulations in their club’s home state, AFL players are required to have had two doses of an approved vaccine in order to train and take the field this season.

    The Eagles said on Friday morning they were “optimistic” the premiership-winning forward would soon return to pre-season training but confirmed he would be forced to train away from his teammates until he became vaccinated.

    “While Jack will take some time to assess his future he will train independently of the remainder of the squad,” the Eagles said.

    “The club will continue to support Jack as he contemplates his options and is optimistic that he will return to build on his outstanding career to date.

    “While the club does respect the right to personal choice it also supports the protocols put in place by the AFL and Governments – both Federal and State – as they navigate their way through this persistent and challenging pandemic.”

    Darling has played 236 games for West Coast since making his senior debut in 2011 and was a member of the 2018 premiership-winning side.

    Also imagine tearing up a $500-700K salary because you don't want a couple of needles.

    That's the weird thing about some of these non vaxers is what other chemicals have they put into their bodies not directed at footballers but in general.

    Did they tell him it would be delivered by way of a floating high ball?

    Edit: please don't like this post I use the same joke every time Jack Darling comes up. I am undeserving of your love.

    Bit of a contrast to our very publicly fully vaccinated AFLM squad.
