I heard this on the news yesterday -- and have looked it up --

The vaccinations made the girls boobs bigger, and also her Lymph nodes -- if this is true then I would be very hesitant and aware, as the lymph nodes are the 1st thing to be checked when you have a breast examination for cancer

The Libs and Nats can say goodbye to votes from regional people in the next NSW State election. We in the regions are furious about the government redirecting our Pfizer to Sydney. People have been booked in for months to get their Pfizer vacc because we didn't have much available in rural areas. It only arrived into a handful of Doctors surgeries in late July in my region. Now it looks like there will be no more first doses available as it is redirected to Sydney by this Sydneycentric government which has messed everything from the beginning. We regional folk won't forget!

let's hope the regional folk don't forget but at the end of the day how many safe seats will be lost and how many marginals will flip? Gladys had to redirect the state's vaccine supply to where it was most needed so she could at least make the case for other states to redirect supplies and why the PM should release more fro his private stash.
