You mentioned a friends son was refused a visit to the Optometrist, even though her son was no longer covid positive. Here , in Sydney, Optometrists are not taking routine check up appointments. Only urgent critical care appointments. Rather than deferring this boys appointment because he had covid previously, the Optometrist may have just screened the need for the appointment as non-critical.
@cat I think you need to be more open minded cat that others think differently to you. Also I don’t think that waiting a few more months to have the choice between having the Pfizer or Astra Zeneca vaccine equates to people being stranded overseas “ indefinitely “. Perhaps putting a bit more thought into your comments would be a good thing.
