Commenting on the story: ‘Modest’ easing of SA restrictions amid interstate delta variant fears
We should praise the Highgate Park Clinic for opening up its Pfizer booking to younger people yesterday, even though the government later stated it was done by a “human error”.
The government (i.e. Steven Marshall) also cannot deny “any suggestion of waste whatsoever”. I have heard from many people in the past few weeks that some clinics, not just Highgate Park Clinic, indeed allowed people over 60 or under 40 to receive Pfizer towards the end of the day when they knew they would have thrown away the unused vaccines.
If you are willing to wait until the clinic is about to close, you might be lucky to get vaccinated that day even without a confirmed booking if the clinic has some unused vaccines. Looks like some if not many people had made bookings to be vaccinated but did not turn up, resulting in unused vaccines. So what’s wrong with making use of these vaccines that are indeed available and will be thrown away otherwise?
Worldwide data now show that it is the younger generation who contracted and spread the Delta strain – not the older people anymore. So, let the younger people be vaccinated as soon as possible. If eligible people (40+ etc) do not want to come forward to be vaccinated for whatever reason, why not let the clinics give the vaccines to everyone else? – Veronica Soebarto
Commenting on the opinion piece: Tourism industry needs help to survive emergency
We completely support CEO Shaun Debruin in his eloquent and well-reasoned appeal for the tourism industry to be saved from imminent administrations and bankruptcies about to take place in our State.
I would argue many state and council costs need to be reduced in this long lasting pandemic, otherwise small and medium size businesses will retract at an accelerating rate that will leave many citizens devoid of employment. I am amazed that it has taken so long to look why the fixed costs charged by governments to business have not decreased in line with revenue, whilst the bureaucrats administering these costs have not suffered the loss of one dollar in their pay packets.
The tourism industry is seemingly collateral damage caused by government edicts in saving the majority. – Rodney Twiss
Commenting on the story: Touch Of The Fumbles: The lowest moment
Well written, I love your sarcasm and humour. Coming from another long-suffering Crows supporter. – Daryl Bessell
Great article and so how I feel at the moment. Others have done things in this game, they have been forgiven. I’m sure people will forgive Tex for his moment.
It takes a good man to apologise and an even bigger man to accept that apology so well done Tex and Robbie. – Robert Orr
