It's official – gifts for jabs gets government approval

Doctors, pharmacists and employers can offer incentives to encourage Australians to receive a COVID vaccine after the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) this week formally approved the use of "business-led incentives" to boost vaccination numbers.

"Such rewards can be monetary or, for example, include store vouchers, discounts or Frequent Flyer points," the TGA said.

Some restrictions apply. Firms cannot offer alcohol, tobacco or medicines, other than those listed by the TGA. In addition, participating firms must not discriminate between vaccines.

The decision comes as Australia's vaccination rollout struggles to reach the federal government's long-abandoned targets. Supply chain disruptions, changing health advice and hesitancy among some sectors of the community has left just 2.9 per cent of the eligible adult population fully vaccinated.

Qantas, which posted a $1.08 billion half-year loss in February after travel restrictions grounded planes worldwide, has revealed plans to hold a competition for vaccinated travellers.

The airline says it will offer prizes such as unlimited travel for a year, free hotel accommodation and Frequent Flyer points, to those who can demonstrate they've been fully vaccinated.

Other countries have made headlines for offering rewards. The US state of Ohio's Vax-a-Million lottery scheme, offering $US1 million to fully vaccinated residents, has already had several winners.

Do you think we should resort to incentives to boost vaccination rates?


Just do the right thing go get a jab I've had mine(first one)I'm 76 yrs of age doesn't hurt & I certainly  didn't need any reward to have it for God's sake  toughen up.

Nothing to do with toughen up, a ridiculous, brainless description, used by mindless people.
You and others of the "Do The Right Thing" brigade have volunteered to accept an unknown substance to be injected in your body with any knowledge of the Long-Term consequences.
Go and spread yourself among a group of people who have contracted the Covid-19 disease and find out if you vaccine is effective.


That won't work on the millions of people who refuse to be injected with an un-tested, unknown substance, millions of them do not have a 'flu' vaccine.
If all the various vaccines had been tested through Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 for a couple of years, and proved to be safe over an EXTENDED period of time,  as the 'flu' vaccine was, not just a few days after release when the millions of people locally and overseas rushed in straight away and volunteered to be part of the test programme.

More people may accept the vaccine after a few years when it is proved to be safe but will not be conned with cheap presents to put their lives at risk.


Totally agree Mak

Assuming they live long enough.

I am 81 years of age and in my life I have had numerous vaccinations such as smallpox, yellow fever, polio, T.B. flu and the biggest I faced over the Astra-Zeneca one was actually getting one as the roll out has been a joke. I have had my first one and have a few weeks to go for the second one.

I wonder if the world would say the same about vaccinations, like using cow pox for treating small pox or more closely to our times the Salk polio vaccines. There is always going to be a fool "Covidiot" who will listen to some other fool sprouting more misinformation so that they can say 'Someone is listening to me'. If you repeat misinformation enough someone will make an uninformed decision. Our media is the biggest problem making mountains out of molehills. The reactions to covid shots have been far less than even those to flu or some of the antibiotics. Fortunately with our modern medicines, we are not seeing another Spanish flu or plague. I am 73 and have had the Astra Zeneca with no problems.

You are lost in a dreamworld, learn how to use your browser to research all the SARS-CoV viruses which caused epidemics in the past.
All the vaccines created went through several phases of testing before being released the population.
You must be a "Covidiot' by expecting your opinion to be a fact, and one fact which should have been adhered to was the flu vaccine, created in 1939 and released for public vaccinations in 1959, many years of testing to prove the safety of the product.

I would rather be a live lab rat than a dead victim of Covid. I have had my first jab and will receive my second one next month. No reactions.

Lab rats are used for testing over a long test period, many die until the vaccine is adjusted to become safe for humans, a few days does not produce any results.

You can teach an old dog new tricks if the old dog is not a fool.

"Never be involved in a dispute with a fool who may hopefully learn something sensible from yourself."

You would have to be crazy to have the jab just for a reward, have it because you know it is right for you

Here is a good article to read if you are questioning:

Thank you, Incognito.

The truth as known to many people who refuse to be vaccinated in comparison to the volunteers who rushed to be injected with an unknown, untested substance because they were too gullible and believed the Bul-Sht.









The cookie crumbles


And so the cookie starts to crumble...

Daylight killers...

The masks begin to fall off!

"The Chinese biological laboratory in Wuhan is owned by Glaxosmithkline,

which (accidentally) owns Pfizer!" (the one who makes the vaccine against

the virus which was (accidentally) started at the Wuhan Biological Lab and

which was (accidentally) funded by Dr. Fauci, who (accidentally) promotes

the vaccine!

"GlaxoSmithKline is (accidentally) managed by the finance division of Black

Rock, which (accidentally) manages the finances of the Open Foundation

Company (Soros Foundation), which (accidentally) manages the French AXA!

"Soros (accidentally) owns the German company Winterthur, which

(accidentally) built a Chinese laboratory in Wuhan and was bought by the

German Allianz, which (coincidentally) has Vanguard as a shareholder, who

(coincidentally) is a shareholder of Black Rock," which (coincidentally)

controls central banks and manages about a third of global investment


"Black Rock" is also (coincidentally) a major shareholder of MICROSOFT,

owned by Bill Gates, who (coincidentally) is a shareholder of Pfizer (which

- remember? Sells a miracle vaccine) and (coincidentally) is now the first

sponsor of the 'WHO!

Now you understand how a dead bat sold in a wet market in China has infected






Fauci was known to be a f***wit over a year ago.

Dr. Fauci, his diminutive stature, gravelly voice or Napoleonic, tough guy attitude is the consummate phony. His actions have all but confirmed this to be true. 

When the pandemic first began in earnest, Fauci was packaged up and sold to the president and worried American populace as “the foremost epidemiologist in America” and innumerable other permutations of this outright falsehood.

Based on the past year, Anthony Fauci is nothing of the sort; he’s not even close to the “foremost,” “most prominent” or “most respected” epidemiologist that America or other countries that have believed him.
