    We did, and he was told no it's all closed, go home and rebook.

    He tried. It says the site is down and no bookings can be done at all now and it will probably be September anyway.

    What is the govt doing???!!! It's beyond a joke.
    Was watching the stuff press conference today- issues with the booking system were mentioned but they sorta seemed to duck the question.

    Hope your brother can get his vaccine soon!

    Ok, Iím going to have to ask:

    Why, if I have No Symptoms, and Never been to an Infected Area, block the passage of those that have, and are waiting to get tested?

    I am told I am a Dinosaur and as such need help with these matters.
    Global Warming is Mann made.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.
    .
    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I have read that bereavement, isolation, loss of income and fear are triggering mental health conditions or exacerbating existing ones. Many people may be facing increased levels of alcohol and drug use, insomnia, and anxiety. All because of lockdowns and the virus.

    And instead of playing the mental health card, increasingly used to abrogate responsibility, maybe these people you refer to can use the coping mechanisms that everyone else uses to deal with challenges that get thrown up on a regular basis.

    It's called 'life'.
