Lovely postmarks, can I request a few examples from our Australian members :)
I will be happy to send a cover from Switzerland, in exchange.

Thanks for posting these Brad! :D

I had only seen this slogan on the 452 machine at DLC up to now.

Interesting that 454 only has the wavy lines cancel. I’ve previously seen the wavy lines on 451 and 453 but not at other centres. Is that only a DLC thing? :)

If you get others please post pictures here, I’m trying to track usage dates at all the machines. :)

A couple of more recent PMC "Be Safe and Vaccinate" postmarks. I hadn't received a 458 cover so I was pleased to get this one.

The 458 cover made it from the CFCP postmarker to my letterbox in less than 24 hours. That is a land speed record for Australia Post in Western Australia.

Thank you Laurence! That extends my dates for 462.

I have decided to try and get a clear example from every machine for this slogan, preferably on postage-paid covers like the ones shown by scrute above, so please save those for me, much appreciated! :D

Thank you very much Rob! I think the Christmas slogan "Spread the Merry" started appearing around this date at least at some mail centres.

Thanks for the update Rob! I'll post an update of dates when I get a chance. I think all the centres have switched now to the new Spread the Merry slogan, although DLC did it a bit later than the others. Have only seen Spread the Merry from one DLC machine so far. Will be interesting to see if 454 switches. :D

As promised, here is an update of the dates of the vaccination slogan I have seen:

DLC
451 05.10.21 to 15.11.21
452 24.09.21 to 09.11.21
453 30.09.21 to 16.11.21
454 Not seen yet
NMC
455 24.09.21 to 04.11.21
456 22.09.21 to 04.11.21
PMC
457 29.09.21 to 02.11.21
458 21.09.21 to 02.11.21
SWLF
459 01.10.21 to 25.10.21
460 26.09.21 to 02.11.21
461 27.09.21 to 05.11.21
462 23.09.21 to 04.11.21

The earliest dates I've seen for the Spread the Merry slogan at the different centres are:
SWLF 08.11.21

So DLC 454 has finally changed to "Spread the Merry".

Thanks for posting this Rob! Perhaps the 454 machine had trouble with the syringe picture for the vaccination postmark?
