Covid: booster vaccines for the rich

Post by lpm » Thu Aug 17, 2023 9:45 pm

Looks like the govt is going ahead with paid-for booster vaccinations. Pharmacies will sell and administer, same as currently for the flu jab.

On the one hand, it's another nail in the free healthcare coffin.

On the other hand, this already happens with the 2 tiers for flu, free for the vulnerable, paid for everyone else.

On the other hand, getting some boosters and immunity into the population will help everyone.

On the other hand, large employers will probably offer free vouchers, like with flu vaccines.

On the final hand, this policy could look spectacularly stupid in a big wave.

And with that many hands, there's going to be a big wave.
