It looks like the delta variant is spreading around Sydney now. We’ve entered a pseudo-lockdown and I can see why. If the government closes all businesses, no one has any income. Federal-level support has dried up but we shouldn’t worry as they are working on something, soon. I hope they work it out because if they don’t – it will spread into every state and territory as people flee NSW.
Here is what happened to me after my first jab of AstraZeneca (alpha). I was curious to see how high my temperature would go without paracetamol – I was not disappointed, clocking in a serious fever of 40.9°C. Interestingly there was no headache until the day after, probably because my brain cooked overnight and forgot what pain was. However, I would recommend it, and will certainly be doing it again in 11 weeks!

Our governments are allowing us to halve our gap between AstraZeneca shots from 12 weeks to a mere 6 weeks! Past cool!
