I read yesterday that Melbs was on day 160 of lockdown since the pandemic began, wow! We have not had it easy compared to the rest of Australia but as always we have been grateful for a government that actually takes the measures to enact such restrictions. I know our family is willing to do whatever is necessary to keep everyone safe and most of my friends share this opinion.
Not everyone agrees:
Due to the rate of spread of this new outbreak, the government had just opened up our age group to be vaccinated. After a day of trying to phone for an appointment we decided to pop over to the walk-in vaccination site at Melbourne Showgrounds. We have a website that gives wait times for all of these facilities and the one closest to us also happened to be one with the shortest. It was a windy and cold day so we bundled up knowing we would be in for a couple of hours of wait time. I would say we stood about 90 minutes in a queue outside the building before we entered the queue inside. The indoor one was much shorter. By the time we made it to the check in, where our Medicare card and driver’s license information were taken, to being taken to a waiting area for a nurse to call you in, was another 45 minutes. It all moved along relatively quickly and we were out in 2.5 hours total. Easy!
Feeling good so far, a sore arm within 12 hours and a bit of a headache the next day.
