yeah I thought that was strange, some results showed up to 90% effectiveness with the reduced dose for the AZ vax.

The Australian article mentions the possibility that it may not be possible to receive multiple vaccines. I would hate for a vaccine that provides inferior protection to exclude me from later getting a 'good' one.

The government has invested a lot of money on the Astra Zeneca, but first is not necessarily best. Need to slow down a bit and get this right. Ignore pressure from Labor to accelerate the process.

Professor Kelly has already cautioned about reading too much into preliminary results but it seems some people just can't help themselves

It's hardly surprising that an Australian should have shares in Australian company CSL.
I have shares in CSL.
Most people with a super fund probably do.
It is drawing a very long bow to suggest that, on the basis of that shareholding, they can influence the opinion of The Australasian Virology Society.

Hence why I said maybe. But he did buy at least some of the shares only 2 months before the agreement on AstraZeneca was announced.

chuckled at a Twitter tweet comparing the governments choice of vaccine as being the "fibre to the node" of vaccines.

According to someone on Twitter. I note there's no source quoted.

"you know who else has shares in CSL pretty much everyone via their superfund ..................... this is so absolutely stupid its not funny.

He declared CSL purchases in his register of members interests dated 30 June, he had none on his 30 March declaration. Proof is there if you look.
and as I said "It is drawing a very long bow to suggest that, on the basis of that shareholding, they can influence the opinion of The Australasian Virology Society" but carry on with your little conspiracy
If backbenchers buying a few shares influences an independent association of medical professionals then that association is neither independent, professional or worth taking note of

Already answered now we're just going around in circles.
