So whom exactly will Scotty be on the phone to and how exactly will they be conjuring up "those doses". Manufacturing a vaccine is not like bottling water or making dunny paper.

Pfizer takes a minimum of 60 days to produce a batch of vaccine, AstraZeneca takes a minimum of 90 days. And those timelines are only achievable if all elements of the supply chain fall exactly into place. Presently, one of the critical supply chain elements are the vials.

Add to that the annoying reality that production is pretty much at capacity currently due to the global demand and, in any event, you can only ramp up as fast as the weakest link in the supply chain will allow.

The vaccine then has to be shipped and there's a complication with shipment protocols - AstraZeneca is shipped chilled and must not be frozen; Pfizer on the other is shipped frozen and must not be thawed. In other words, co-shipping to maximise the efficiency of limited refrigerated shipping assets is problematic.

Of course, the other issue now is the fallout from the AstraZeneca pile-on. Thanks to the likes of Palaszczuk's and Young's politicisation of the AstraZeneca vaccine, there are now doses of that vaccine available that nobody wants. I don't know about other states but Queensland now has a growing surplus of AstraZeneca doses because people are eschewing it and waiting for the opportunity to get Pfizer shots.

So, is a phone call is likely to fix it - you could ask Kevin07, I guess.

Canada and Mexico had the initiative and called the Pfizer Global Ceo and increased supply, changed order dates.

That specific executive was actually asked if he had ever fielded a call from the Prime Minister of Australia. The answer was no.

Surely Rudd’s “Australia 2020 Summit” saw this coming?

Remember that?

Uh-huh. Are you talking about these calls, six months ago, about delivery delays against the previously agreed schedules? Or this arrangement, from three months ago, for Canada to get more Pfizer vaccines in two years time?

Rudd never negotiated. Just made a call and even shared with the PM. You know the PM who is currently underground and only emerges to sling shit at Labor politicians (Dan and Rudd). Couldn't find the time to call the head of Pfizer in a crisis.

Need to change this title to the Oz Politics thread. So much BS from all sides. It's more about the next Election than the Covid response!

I think their was a Covid thread early in March or talking Covid under a Virgin thread. I may have said in those
way back then, and most of you now that the scary thing about this virus is not the virus, itís how politicians react to it.
Dan enjoyed his 122 consecutive press conferences, the power in his body language and dower voice made sure
he was going to suppress this virus and everything else in its way like chemo.
Problem is he got on the beers and spiked Gladyís drink and now invited NSW to bat chasing a target of 123.

A pretty good example of what Buster just said.

Remember politicians face re-elections, their whole mantra is to groom enough followers in order for them to continue their lunacy!
upon election time reflect back on what they have done to destroy this nation.,

The US and UK have moved on and there's one giant reason why.

I had my 1st az shot in early june & had to wait 4 days for an appointment time even though it was a walk in centre however now 'walk in' means exactly that,there is no waiting time.
I think this is exactly what is happening across the country due to as you say the panic put into people by morons such as the chook & young.

1 big difference between us & nsw is that here in vic the % of people that comply is very high,i guess thats due to what we went through last year.

That's a very polite way of explaining the difference.

But similar here in W.A.
I went down to the local Coles/Woolies late Sunday afternoon just 8 hrs before the mask requirements were lifted.
Rough scan - 99.9% compliance.
That in an area with 3 cases 2 weeks ago.

I guess that most people can see that while wearing masks is massively unpopular and unpleasant, it's a burden that you just have to bear.
