    There is no phased approach to the vaccine roll out in Qld's Central West. It actually makes sense when thought about.

    "“There is no phased approach in the Central West,” the Longreach-based Central West Hospital and Health Service posted on Facebook.
    “The vaccine is safe, effective, free and available for everyone 18 years and over in the community who wants it.”
    The federal health department has now told The New Daily that, unlike in towns and cities, all residents of remote communities can get their COVID-19 jab."

    India crosses the threshhold for daily infections, 100,000. India is vaccinating more than 3 million people every day.

    India crosses the 100,000-case threshold for daily infections

    India recorded its highest tally of new coronavirus infections on Monday as officials in the hardest-hit state reimposed lockdowns and warned that hospitals even in smaller cities were running out of beds.

    More than half of the new infections were traced to the western state of Maharashtra, which includes Mumbai, India’s financial capital. It came even as India continues to vaccinate more than three million people every day, one of the largest efforts in the world.

    State officials ordered all shops, movie theaters, markets and restaurants to close starting Monday evening and imposed a nighttime curfew. Critics say Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has sent mixed signals, encouraging people to attend celebrations for Holi, a major religious festival where hundreds of new cases were traced to, and campaign rallies.

    Background: India’s vaccination drive has been a bright spot at home, but curtailing exports of vaccines has set back poorer countries that were counting on India for their doses.

    Details: Officials announced Monday morning that they had recorded 103,558 new cases in 24 hours. After several months of declines, daily infections have surged tenfold since mid-February.

    In the USA, problems with AstraZeneca makes the production of Johnson and Johnson more important

    WASHINGTON — A top federal pandemic official warned last June that Emergent BioSolutions, the government contractor that last month threw out millions of doses of Covid-19 vaccines because of contamination, lacked enough trained staff and had a record of problems with quality control.

    AstraZeneca was expected to fulfill the majority of the global need, but safety concerns have upended those plans. British officials said on Wednesday that people under 30 should not take the AstraZeneca vaccine, and authorities in the European Union said they had found a “possible link” between the vaccine and rare but worrisome blood clots. That makes Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine more important, experts say.

    Between October and January, Emergent threw away five lots of the AstraZeneca vaccine — each the equivalent of two million to three million doses — because of contamination or suspected contamination, The Times reported on Monday.

    The US debate on CoVID passports.

    Still, vaccine certification does pose some genuine ethical concerns. Most obvious is that there still isn’t nearly enough vaccine to go around, and access to it in the United States is sharply fractured along racial and class lines.

    What’s the point?
    Some businesses, especially cruise lines, airlines and entertainment venues, are eager for a more efficient and potentially more fraud-resistant tool for screening health status than paper documentation, whether to assuage the concerns of their workers or the concerns of potential customers who might be averse to gathering in large groups with unvaccinated or untested people.

    In New York, businesses have an additional economic incentive: Since April 2, entertainment venues there have been able to host up to 100 people indoors and up to 200 people outdoors. But if venues require proof of a negative coronavirus test or vaccination, those limits increase to 150 and 500. (Mask-wearing and social distancing are still required.)



    “With an unequal health care system, limited vaccine access, and class-driven technological disparities,” Jacob Silverman writes in The New Republic, “vaccine passports may end up being another tool for the rich to return to normal life while the people who are already being failed by our current systems of vaccine rollout find themselves left further out in the cold.”
