    You'd never be able to collect that money.

    Just make it, if unvaxed , you get lowest priority for hospital beds .
    I would prefer no jab, no hospital admission for anything (even for visits) . But that will never happen.

    When the covid vax passport/app comes out, the anti vaxers will find they have less access to many things (incl jobs).

    then they stay home and will die.
    or you drag them to hospital and you never get the money out of them.

    that just gives them even more excuses not to get it.
    besides by dec, my wild guess is they will throw open the doors by then and let it run. if you don't get your first jab in the next couple of weeks your going to have a bad Christmas.

    So no treatment if you catch flu either?
    And pneumonia as well?

    The unvaxed can spread covid around in our hospitals.
    Thats actually an issue now, doctors & nurses having to self isolate at home because of suspected covid infected people coming into hospitals

    The unvaxxed will become a "disadvantaged minority". And we all know how powerful the "disadvantaged minority" are in this country.

    What they want, they get. On-trend is the "mental health" card, but that may change and get updated to a new type of 'card'.

    After reading some of the, shall we say less than kind, opinions expressed by some in this thread towards a lot of our fellow citizens regardless of whether they are right or wrong I now am starting to understand how different Governments and or some religious belief systems have been able to convince others to believe it is a correct behaviour to hate and to ostracise anyone that they disagree with.
    That is exactly the way the Governments of Germany, Japan, Cambodia, China et al where able to convince their citizens that it was a good idea to wipe out the classes of people they disliked. Jews and Gypsies in Germanys case Intellectuals in others.
    Some have very good health reasons to avoid the vaccine others I would agree are mentally challenged. Regardless nobody plans to become ill have an accident or any other misadventure that necessitates hospital treatment so unless you plan to ban anyone who does not take care of their own health, is obese, takes illicit drugs, drives too fast or any of the other stupid things that people do (and if you are honest you have all done some foolish things at some time in your past) then every person in this country is entitled to the same care as any other.
    The hospitals in Auckland have all had patients sick in beds in the corridors waiting for others to leave so they can be admitted to a ward every bad flue season for years I assume it is the same in other parts of the country.
    I cannot understand why you would be afraid of the unvaccinated they are no more likely to pass on the virus than the vaccinated are.
