Think we are at as a nation 83% first dose , Nsw and Victoria haven't got much left to give , but qld ,wa, and SA, are very low 70s by the time they hit just over 80% Australia will be just over 90% ( roughly ) which would make us 1 of if not the biggest vaccinated countries in the world, hopefully it has an impact and fucks this shit up, but who knows how this will all pan out few more weird years ahead
Regional still lagging behind though due to vaccine being taken from areas to give to Sydney, the fact that vaccine supply was not as good as Sydney and vaccine clinics run for only a few hours a week twice a week early on. Seems that the only stats that matter percentage wise is Sydney and a lot of regional people are nervous that rates are not as high in their areas but Sydney will be able to visit regional before regional rates are up over the 80%...regional cases are in fact going up whilst greater Sydney diminishing...

Walked into bcf yesterday and they never checked me or the guy after me but checked very other person (that I seen) afterwards.
Turned away 3 people and were very apolagetic and obviously ashamed at the policy.

Spoke to a guy outside who was refused entry because he didn't have the vaccine i.d but was fully vaxxed. He wasn't stressed about it because it's not the workers fault but dumbfounded about the direction Australia is headed with a 2 tiered society.

I wouldn't have bothered going in but I needed a last minute bday present and my local tackle shop is closed on Mondays
When did you get fully vaxxed...still waiting for my second one so just doing the essentials....

I’ve got my digital wallet now and yeah I went to the pub and they definitely checked it pretty closely so your going to need it I think. Having said that I hope that little picnic culture doesn’t vanish because I had fun the last two weeks. Heaps cheaper as well especially coming into summer.

Not quite right my old mans in regional and some friends too and if you wanted vaccine all you had to do was visit your doctor he was vaccinated 2 months before me and ive been double vaccinated for two months.

Good reason to continue not going there for me!

Perrottet confirmed today that 80% relaxing of restrictions will kick in from Monday excluding regional travel which is set back to November 1.

Also confirmed that from November 1, hotel quarantine will be scrapped for NSW. Anyone entering Sydney will need to be double vaxxed and do a PCR test before flying.

Hotel guarantine scrapped? Wow. OS visitors no quarantine and just PCR test? Geez could be a worry early on?

I guess no one will care if there's many thousands in the community tho...no control anyway?

Gonna happen eventually as we "learn to live with Covid" but you don't want the risk of being the early adopter of risky policies that seem to be more driven by economics now than even with Gladys.

Can see all other borders (Qld, WA, Tas, SA, NT) Vic? ACT? remaining closed to NSW even longer if thats NSW policy? All the other States are open to each other, (other than Level 1 areas) except NSW, ACT and Vic, so this could be a concern for them?

Sounds that way. Considering how prevelant it will be in the community, adding one more case from overseas isn't really going to affect us.

Hotel Quarantine was a terrible idea anyway. So many cases arose from people catching Covid-19 while in hotel quarantine.

Yep. Tourists too. He stated that it's open for all who are fully vaccinated.

Except for the impact of another introduced variant without much of a control procedure out and about in the community before detection?

Was eventually going to happen, the one thing I find in quite poor taste is that NSW was supplied with vaccines that were originally meant for other states. The annulling of quarantine, at the very least, should have waited until other states had reached, or had the timescale and supply to, the 80% (16+ years of age) fully vaccinated benchmark. Perrottet has scoffed at other states continuing to close their borders to NSW, without the allowance of this 80% benchmark to be achieved by other states, is really really poor.
