14 Day Quarantine For Non-Immunised Travelers

April 28, 2021 | 83 Comments

“Effective June 6th, all non-immunised travelers, including Bermudians and local residents who travel abroad, will be subject to supervised quarantine for 14 days in a Government designated facility at their own expense,” Premier David Burt said, adding that “the Government will provide full details on the supervised quarantine on May 6th.”

Speaking at last night’s [April 27] press conference, Premier Burt said, “On Sunday I confirmed that we are currently in Phase 1 of 3 on our Roadmap to Reopening. Combined with the 7 day Stay at Home period, this phase and the regulations within it are envisioned to remain in place for at least the next three weeks.

“I also announced that effective immediately we would take steps regarding travellers originating from or who had visited Brazil, India or South Africa in the past 14 days ensuring that they will be subject to a mandatory 14 day quarantine and electronic monitoring to ensure compliance.

“In addition to this, we will also see further changes at our borders which will be implemented to protect our community from the variants of coronavirus continuing to originate in other countries.

“Effective Sunday, May 2nd, all non-immunised travelers entering Bermuda will be required to quarantine for 4 days, pending a negative Day 4 test. This is in line with the current policy for travellers arriving from the United Kingdom.

“June 6th will see the implementation of the additional changes at our borders, which has caused much conversation in our community. Effective June 6th, all non-immunised travelers, including Bermudians and local residents who travel abroad, will be subject to supervised quarantine for 14 days in a Government designated facility at their own expense. In addition to that, the following changes will occur:

  • “The time period for a pre-test required for visitors to obtain a travel authorisation will move from 5 days to 3 days, which is in line with the global standard.
  • “All immunised travellers who are entering Bermuda, with a negative pre-test, will not be required to quarantine after their negative arrival test, but they will still be required to be tested on days 4, 8 and 14.
  • “Immunised residents entering Bermuda without a negative pre-test will be required to quarantine until their day 4 negative test result.

“In regards to supervised quarantine, we are aware that there are many questions from the community as to how it will impact students returning home, families with children, how it will function and how much it will cost. The Government will provide full details on the supervised quarantine on May 6th, to give travellers at least 4 weeks’ notice prior to the changes going into effect.

“The purpose of this action is to again protect our Island from the continuing mutations of the coronavirus that are taking their toll in so many countries around the world. We have experienced the severity of the U.K variant ourselves over the last few months.

“Many will have seen the recent coverage of the double mutant variant which has had devastating effects on India, with world-record cases reported over the last week and their healthcare system teetering on collapse. The scale of that outbreak means there will undoubtedly be more variants that will emerge and that will spread around the world.”

During his national address, the Premier had said “There will be appropriate exceptions from supervised quarantine for minors and the medically vulnerable.”

  1. Immunised says:

    Has anyone given thought as to how this will effect tourism? Hasn’t that industry suffered enough?

    • ItllBeFine says:

      Tourism will be fine, as most of the world has a greater % of their population who are eager to get the vaccine and will have received it by then, or shortly thereafter.

      Only in Bermuda do we have the issue of having far more vaccine than people who want to get it. Other countries are fighting tooth and nail over the stuff (Canada) and their populace is desperate for it, but here we have conspiracy nuts and an alarming number of people who willingly believe them, despite all evidence objectively proving the contrary.

    • Geoff says:

      It shouldnt.. it does say BERMUDIANS and LOCAL RESIDENTS. NOT TOURISTS.

      • Gina Ingham says:

        Yes it does. People visiting the island who are vaccinated don’t have to quarantine after having a negative pre arrival test, they only Have to test on day 4, 8 and 14 of their stay. Piece of cake! This is good for tourism.

      • Coal says:

        Yes it does. People visiting the island who are vaccinated don’t have to quarantine after having a negative pre arrival test, they only Have to test on day 4, 8 and 14 of their stay. Piece of cake! This is good for tourism.

  2. Micro says:

    Fools should’ve done this from the beginning.

  3. Burt's Beard says:

    The view is great! My whiskers are all atwitter with sticking Bermudians and ex-pats with the cost of being housed in government-approved facilities (friends and family). There is no need to quarantine in your residence that you are already paying for when you can pay extra for government-approved facilities, PLUS meals of course. Anything to make people’s lives more expensive and miserable because we have the power.

    If you want to move out of Bermuda to somewhere with more freedoms, that is fine with us because we keep getting paid and can purchase your property at a rock-bottom price. BTW, all of these rules are subject to change because we, like governments worldwide, are winging this from day to day.

  4. Over reach says:

    To discriminate based on a vaccine that has only received “emergency use authorization” by the FDA and has not been fully approved is a massive over reach in my opinion and may well be successfully challenged legally.
    Additionally, it should by now be common knowledge , although not widely reported ,that there is zero legal liability for the pharmaceutical companies producing these vaccines. That was requested and enacted by Congress in the 1990’s.
    Lastly, fully vaccinated individuals can still carry and transmit the virus as can non vaccinated individuals. The constitutionality of this move is highly questionable in my view.

    • Fremi says:

      I totally agree. It boils down to vaccinated people given a free pass to transmit the virus while unvaccinated people have to held in a prison that they have to pay for .

      • Snobby says:

        Agree with you 100%. Please make it make sense.

      • sandgrownan says:

        No it doesn’t. The chance of infection and transmission of the virus by vaccinated people is extremely remote. Which is how ALL vaccines work numb nuts.

        • LOL (original) says:

          Ever notice that you have to insult people to get your point across and then when your point is researched you turn out to be wrong?

          LOL you always give off the feel of a supremacist

          • sandgrownan says:

            This is cross posted form another thread. The reality is, the anti-vax brigade can do their own research rather than repeat something they’ve read on someone’s FB feed. But they choose not to, it doens’ support their narrative. Ergo, they are stupid.

            “Clinical trials show that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has a very high efficacy — 95 percent — against symptomatic infection.

            Real-world studies show a similar high effectiveness against all infections, including asymptomatic ones.

            So, very few people fully vaccinated with this vaccine will contract the coronavirus. However, breakthrough infections can occur. This is true of all vaccines.

            “No vaccine is 100 percent effective for every recipient, so we will continue to see rare infections in people who have been vaccinated,” said Dr. S. Wesley Long, an associate professor of pathology and genomic medicine at Houston Methodist, who was not involved in the new study.

            “But many times these infections are mild, and the protection against severe disease and hospitalization is still very robust,” he said.

            In the new study, researchers at Tel Aviv University analyzed PCR samples collected from nearly 400 people who developed a coronavirus infection after receiving one or both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

            Researchers compared these PCR samples with samples taken from a similar group of unvaccinated people.

            They looked at whether vaccinated people were more likely to contract an infection with one of the coronavirus variants, compared with the original coronavirus.”

    • Rational Thinker says:

      All facts. This is punishment for those who follow the rules and do not wish to be experimented on. The drug is an experiment which requires a booster, more experimentation, and we act like it’s for our benefit. Meanwhile, the drug pushers/companies get unbelievably rich off this while we take on all the risk. We can’t sue them or their partners, the governments, if it adversely affects us. This is not right. It’s not fair. I can quarantine from home.

      • sandgrownan says:

        The WSJ has a really good, factual, article on how the pfizer vaccine was developed. Go read it before you post anymore stupidity.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      “it should by now be common knowledge , although not widely reported, that there is zero legal liability for the pharmaceutical companies producing these vaccines. That was requested and enacted by Congress in the 1990’s.”

      Assuming that statement to be true, such a legal liability exemption passed by the U.S. Government would not shield a pharmaceutical company from liability in Bermuda. American laws do not apply in Bermuda.

      “fully vaccinated individuals can still carry and transmit the virus as can non vaccinated individuals”

      Correct, as our Premier has reminded us

  5. Just plain stupid says:

    Vaccination or not you can still contract Covid-19. There is still a 14 day latency period once contracted and you can still pass it on during that time. So basically we are going to allow potential carriers to go into the public based on their vaccinations. They can become super spreaders as they will in many cases be tourists and want to see the island. Then they turn up positive and contact tracing becomes a nightmare. That said the protocols should be the same for both vaccinated and unvaccinated. Moreover to charge local residents to stay in a hotel for two weeks instead of electronic monitoring at their home is a ploy for money. You can not justify a $2000 plus bill for not being vaccinated and traveling, unless you are desperate to inject a failing economy with cash. We are still human and have the right to refuse any medical treatment that we do not agree with. Yet if we refuse the vaccine we will be subject to “island arrests” or a hefty economic sanction. That is bullying at its best and I for one will not stand for it. Mr. Premier and elected officials please take the time to reconsider this position because the fallout to come will not be good. This is not a threat but a careful consideration of the facts. You have to do better by the people who live here and those people who are visiting here. This pandemic is far from over and the new strains are more resistant and therefore deadly. The fact that this month is not over yet and the numbers have never been higher gives testament as to what is to come. So I will warn you as Moses warned pharaoh, “Let my people go!” Failing to comply will only anger The Lord of Host and the plagues will continue to devastate this national. Have a blessed day!!!

  6. BermyGal says:

    I WANT to get vaccinated and return home to Bermuda. However, I do not expect to be vaccinated in Europe (where I am currently working) until the end of summer, at least. Should I have to bear the cost of 14 nights quarantine in a hotel in Bermuda through no fault of my own? Why can’t I quarantine at my home in Bermuda in an apartment by myself ?!

    • Unfortunately says:

      Unfortunately you’ll have to either wait until you are able to get vaccinated in the area of the world you have made the choice to live in (made the choice, not been forced) or abide by the rules as they are set out.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Heard the identical tale of fate from someone today. Their 2 kids couldn’t get vaccinated here before they left to go back to the UK as we weren’t doing people in their age bracket back then.
      Now they’re the UK wanting to get vaccinated but that isn’t going to happen because of the demand (and their age). They want to return for the summer break and the parents will be forced to shell out big time through no real fault of their own if they want to get them back here badly enough.
      An unfortunate situation .

    • Burt's Beard says:

      Excellent points and logical. But your apartment is not on the list of govenrment-approved quarantine facilities. You have no power, we (The Government) do.

      Just remember, all of these rules are subject to change because we, like governments worldwide, are winging this from day to day.

    • Mina Williams says:

      I’ve got a great idea and solution to the covid antivaxers situation. Bermuda should take all the non-vacinnated and people against the vaccine, put them on one of Bermuda’s surrounding islands, let them all infect one another,let their immune systems do the work if they catch it.. The one’s who are strong may recover, the rest will die. Let the chips fall where they may. Don’t let them come back to the main land until they are fully vaccinated. Leave the vaccinated people the heck alone to live full promising lives. How about that. Problem solved.

  7. This is poorly thought out, if you think of the many business travelers that have to travel from Bermudian companies, or even persons that has to travel to Bermuda for business, and these persons are not vaccinated, we are creating a bigger problem then what we need.

    Bermuda in the last three weeks has seen three Bermudians that have been airlifted to overseas hospitals and each of these persons have had to be helped through Go Fund Me pages, so because of the severity of their medical crisis and not even have insurance or money to pay for medical treatment, to the extent that they had to be assisted by those who have been generous to help their plight, how are we now going to expect these same individuals to be faced with a 14 day quarantine at their expense.

    I say that to also say for all residents who have to travel for medical and cant afford to pay for a hotel for 14 days upon return. The same can be said for returning students. The Government wants this 14 day mandatory quarantine, then they should be the ones to pay for it, after all it is not going to be for a long period of time, or is this going to be a permanent fixture for non vaccinated persons.

    • Red Pill says:

      So they are basically punishing people who don’t get the shot. And trying to force them to get it. Totalitarian if you ask me

      • Sandgrownan says:

        They could just legislate that you have to have it for which there is precedent.

        This way, at least, you can choose not to have it but there are consequences.

        • LOL (original) says:

          After all that you’ve said and you want others to be afraid of consequences? Are you a serial abuser too?

          LOL

          • sandgrownan says:

            Look, if people don’t want to be vaccinated, fine. But the issue is, it affects me, my loved ones, my family if they don’t so it really does have an impact.

            Their selfishness affects me directly, and many others.

            So, there will be consequences. Vaccine passports, exclusion from restaurants or schools, aircraft, cruise ships etc etc.

            Take your choice. I don’t care if you’re afraid or not.

  8. Whatever they say says:

    Absolute disgrace, talk about being coerced into getting the vaccine. This sort of legislation would cause mass protests in other parts of the world.

    • sandgrownan says:

      Actually it wouldn’t. This is essentially what is currently in place in the UK, and the EU are working towards standards for immunisation passports.

      So you can be all mightier than though, but the reality is, you’ll need a vaccine to travel.

      • Whatever they say says:

        Get your facts right – residents of UK, EU, US, Canada, Brazil and every nation I can think off do not have to quarantine for 14 days in a Government facility at their own expense when they return un-vaccinated.

        From red list countries yes and this is whether vaccinated or not (UK).

        • sandgrownan says:

          Apologies, I was talking about the quarantine requirement as opposed as to who is “on the hook” for it.

    • YouAreDelusional says:

      This sort of legislation is being implemented in the rest of the world, to great applause.

      Much of America is now following the guideline of if you are vaccinated you may return to life, if you are not you still have restrictions.

    • Ssssbbbb says:

      Couldn’t agree more

    • Rational Thinker says:

      This sort of legislation would cause mass protests here if it was the OBA doing it.

      • Snobby says:

        I am a PLP support or well was… I say a protest should have been scheduled a few weeks ago due to the incompetent decisions and amateur news reports.

    • Sandgrownan says:

      No. It wouldn’t.

  9. Lara says:

    This is the right call, we have to incentivize immunizations. I fear it won’t be enough and we will have to restrict access to stores, restaurants, churches etc.

    It is absolutely a humans right to say no to this, but the world can’t be wrong and Bermuda right, they have accept the consequences.

    My friends overseas think it is astonishing that we have so many vaccinations that people don’t want. Only in Bermuda.

    • Mark says:

      I’m astonished you have friends. Only in Bermuda will zealots like you drink the Koolaid straight from Burt’s hand.

    • sandgrownan says:

      Make it law and be done with it.

    • Burt's Beard says:

      By my whiskers! There is no incentive – there is an oppressive cost for unvaccinated Bermudians and ex-pats to travel back to Bermuda. Who selected and who owns the government-approved quarantine facilities? This is one way to force people who do not want a vaccination for a variety of reasons, without specifically issuing an official fiat. People’s rights are being violated.

      Now, think about the millions of lost unvaccinated tourist opportunities. The cost to travel to Bermuda just when up big time!

      Do you not read the news? People in many countries do not want vaccinations.

      If you have not noticed, we (The Government) still refuse to provide you with the specific metrics to determine success. Why are YOU not demanding the metrics?

    • My Friends overseas... says:

      Differing but adding to your thought…..my fiends overseas are astonished that healthy people under 40 would even consider taking a non approved medicine when the survival rate for that age bracket mirrors the common flu at 99.97%.
      Why would anyone inject themselves with any drug, spike protein or vaccine when it’s not necessary?

      • Bermuda Sand says:

        Would your friends overseas be astonished to learn that Covid-19 is contagious? And that studies are beginning to show that vaccinated individuals are less likely to pass it on to others? I’d hazard a guess that that is why many in the younger age categories ARE signing up to be vaccinated, even if the risk to them personally is very very very low.

    • Fremi says:

      You chose to be vaccinated I choose not. Being vaccinated does not mean you cannot transmit nor catch . We are equal yet govt is being prejudicial and discriminatory in their legislstive approach

      • sandgrownan says:

        Correct, but it significantly reduces the risk. More importantly, your actions affect my risk. Do you understand that?

        All the anti-vaxers seem to forget that their “rights” affect mine.

    • Mark says:

      Go drop in a well. Vaccinated or not I’d not want to be anywhere near you in a store, restaurant or church; stupidity is also contagious.

      • Sandgrownan says:

        So. Much. Ignorance.

        Are you able to read without moving your lips?

        • Mark says:

          Are you able think for yourself? Or does the Government tell you what to type.

    • LOL (original) says:

      The world has been wrong many times before I mean do we need to show you the world’s track record………..

      LOL think the enslavement of others. Oh wait some supremacists on here think it is a good idea to always follow what others do in the world and because they have no knowledge of God anything is ok as long as others around the world do it???…… Carry on…

  10. Cathy says:

    I don’t have an issue being in quarantine for 14 days once I return to island. Excellent idea and should have been mandatory from the get go for all travelers whether vaccinated or not. However, I shouldn’t need to go into another facility to stay (Hugh expense) if I am traveling for health reasons and not vaccinated! Please really give this careful consideration!

  11. Science proves a point says:

    This restriction was put into place this time last year when we had returning residents and students who were brought in on the special charter flights as the airport was closed. They were put up at the Princess and let’s not forget the negative behaviour that happened with some of those who were there.

    The need to ensure that the island is kept from having another outbreak far outweighs the risks of allowing people to continue with the terrible ‘mobile quarantine’. That proved absolutely useless and the current outbreak was caused by those who blithely ignored the ‘rules’. Countries like New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong (I could go on….) have been using these restrictions to their advantage. AND IT WORKS!

    Immunization is a personal choice. I have been vaccinated as I have elderly parents with underlying conditions and I want to keep them safe. If you choose not to get vaccinated, that is your personal decision. But it is fully within the Government’s right to say that there are two sets of conditions if you choose to travel. This is one of the few decisions I agree with right now by this Government as they certainly didn’t do enough to protect us after they saw the flagrant abuse of the former quarantine rules.

  12. upset student says:

    Not fair to students in places such as the Uk who are not able to get the vaccine yet! and what is the difference between someone who is vaccinated and someone who isn’t ? they both can still get Covid so why are the rules different?
    Also as a student who is currently doing exams and final assignments i found it very stressful that this announcement was made with no following details maybe next time wait until you are prepared to give all information the public will want to know! lastly why would i be forced to pay for supervised quarantine when i have a place that i can stay isolated on my own for FREE! remember i’m a student the whole reason i come home for summer is to make money for the next academic year this not only delays when i can start work but also take money away that can go towards school related things. I hope there is a re think of this plan/rule case truthfully i don’t believe it has be thought through enough.

  13. Rational Thinker says:

    This is horrible leadership. Forcing residents to participate in a public experiment that may or may not help them is simply not right. The drug companies and the governments take no risk, make billions of dollars and force residents to participate and assume all the risk. I’m not a lab rat. The government is creating another demographic that will be discriminated against. Poor leadership and poor decision making. So typical.

    • Sandgrownan says:

      Well, if more people were willing to be vaccinated, then perhaps we wouldn’t need draconian quarantine rules.

  14. EU proposed passport says:

    The Proposed “vaccine passport” makes complete sense.
    By way of a unique QR code, individuals can travel freely within the EU if:
    1. They have had a vaccine
    2. They have recently recovered from Covid 19 and thereby have natural immunity.
    3. They have had a recent negative test for Covid
    What Premier Burt is instituting as of June 9th is no more or less than bullying to force the vaccine. If the government was actually concerned about safety and the virus, the EU’s new proposed protocol, which he must be aware of, makes complete sense while respecting people’s rights to choose and the right to free movement within their country.
    The government has lost my support in this endeavour .

    • Summer Skies says:

      The EU has those rules at its own risk. Bermuda’s recent lockdown and current lockdown exemplifies what can happen if you simply rely on a negative test result. Indeed Bermuda travellers are tested five times and even then it didn’t prevent an outbreak.

  15. Phil says:

    Does Zane DeSilva own the quarantine facility? Asking for a friend.

  16. Unbelievable says:

    I can’t even believe that we are even talking about “incentivizing” getting a vaccine. Who are you privileged people that you won’t get a vaccine without getting something for it? Are you kidding me? Grow the hell up. Where are those vaccine passports? Put those on your cry baby backsides and see how fast you get the vaccine. Dummies.

    • LOL (original) says:

      So when people’s doctors tell them they aren’t eligible due to existing health issues to get it then what. You’ve made a second class citizen out of them and it’s not their fault.

      Your are part of the supremacist crew? Must have been fine with things like apartheid then? Lay down your hood and bigotry or never let it slip that that’s you writing.

      • sandgrownan says:

        AH, there will always be a small subset who for some underlying medical condition shouldn’t take the vaccine. Previous vaccination program legislation has taken that into account.

        But if we have a small minority unvaccinated, then it becomes EVEN MORE important the rest of us do get vaccinated. It males those refusing to be vaccinated even more selfish.

      • Unbelievable says:

        You are deflecting from the point of my question but then again that’s what you do.
        It’s entirely reasonable that people follow their doctors directions if they have concerns. But we both know that not everyone needs to go to their doctor in the case of this vaccine and I’m willing to bet that there are more people who didn’t go to their doctor and still got the vaccine.
        I’m talking about people who believe they should get something for simply getting a vaccine that is part of the greater good.
        You don’t know anything about that except for your selfish needs.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      There are legitimate reasons for not trusting the vaccine and there are legitimate reasons for not getting the vaccine.

      I am not supporting the “anti-vaxers” or Q-Anon conspiracy theorists, I am simply making the point that there may be a valid reason for a person not to be immunised.

  17. Eyes says:

    Is it really right to ‘herd’ people into a facility and make them pay for two weeks when they are penny pinching a medical trip? What about all the children in the family. I thought we were a ‘community’? I will stay home and get sicker from my own condition . Thanks! We will see how kind Cabinet will be now. It is already to Darn expensive on this tiny rock, with too few options.

    • SandgrownAn says:

      Get vaccinated then. Don’t piss and moan about the consequences of your own actions.

    • Coming soon says:

      Easy don’t go away, hopefully soon President Biden will make it standard that if your not vaccinated you can’t enter the USA. Hopefully the airlines will do it even sooner.

  18. Rotter Dame says:

    We all know what this is all about and that is about making people have no choice but to take a vaccine. Our entire world is being ordered to follow a global plan to control us as written in the Holy Bible. All of a sudden people who support population control are at the forefront trying to get people vaccinated to “save” lives. Wake up Bermuda…these satanic freemasons are everywhere. Our Lord will strike them when they least expect it. I will be happy to spend 14-days anywhere, anytime.

  19. Upset student says:

    Not fair to students who are in places such as the UK who are not able to get the vaccine yet ! And what is the difference between someone who is vaccinated and someone who isn’t ? They can both get covid so why are the rules different ? Also as a student who is currently exams and final assignments I’m found it very stressful that this announcement was with no following details maybe next time wait until you are prepared to give all the information that the public will want to know ! Lastly why would I be forced to pay for supervised quarantine when I have a place I can isolate on my own for FREE? Remember I am a student the whole reason I come home for summer is to make money for the next academic year this not only delays when I can start work but also takes money away that can go towards school related things! I hope there is a re think of this plan/rule because I truly don’t believe it has been thought through enough.

  20. the government dont care about us uni students

    • sandgrownan says:

      Unfortunately, The Premier has had to announce these draconian measures because Bermudians cannot be trusted to behave.

      I’m no PLP / Burt fan, but he’s walking a tighrtope between public health and “opening up”. Sadly, when the regs were last relaxed, Bermudians acted like spring breakers in Floriduh.

      THat’s why we had a big spike and more deaths.

      • we can not hide from this virus forever at some point we are going to have to go back to normal. I should not be getting forced to pay anymore than my flight and pre test to return home it’s just not fair.

  22. Common Sense says:

    The incentive for me to get the vaccine was that now I have almost no chance of getting unwell if I were to contract the virus. I also have almost nil chance of passing it on to others. A very good upside for getting the vaccine when the adverse effects of the vaccine are so minimal. I believe that we all have the right to have or not have the vaccine; that is our choice, but I do have a problem with ‘anti vaxers’ posting so many untruths about the vaccine on this blog, and do wonder what the motives are for doing this.
    Unvaccinated people are not a threat to me. They risk their health and are a risk to other unvaccinated people including those who cannot get the vaccine for medical reasons

    OK, let’s just start with the definition of “immunised.”

    Dictionary: Immunised, VERB
    If people or animals are immunised, they are MADE IMMUNE to a particular disease, often by being given an injection.

    Now that we understand that, let’s move forward to state that the current injections that are being offered do NOT protect anyone from becoming infected with, or transmitting, the virus. This is what the “leaders” have admitted, the CDC, the WHO, Fauci, the “vaccine” manufacturers, even our government.

    WHERE is this immunisation they are talking about? Everyone in Bermuda and around the world is non-immunised when it comes to this covid virus, even the ones who have taken the injection. The term they should be using, is: Those who are Non-injected, by an experimental medical treatment, still in trials.

    Let’s call it what it is.

    So, given that we are all in the same boat, in other words, “non-immunised,” the new mandates are, not only an infringement on the people’s rights, but they make absolutely no sense.

    Dear Get Smart, I think that it is you that needs to get smart! The vaccine does a very good job of “immunizing” people against Covid. Yes some people can test +ve to the virus, but they have almost no chance of becoming ill even if they contract the virus and again almost no chance of spreading it to others. This compares extremely favourably with people who have not had the shot.
    Your definition of immunized is fatuous, and says nothing. Immune to a disease is defined as having a resistance to the disease. The evidence is overwhelming that the vaccine does confer resistance to Covid; therefore immunity. Perhaps you should confine your self to subjects that you know about! I will concede that no vaccine is 100%

    Perhaps the Govt should consider having a ‘Walk-in vaccine’ line after the Arrival COVID test at the airport, for people who want to get vaccinated but could not before returning eg Uni students. They can get their first dose. All staff are in full PPE already, so no need for 14 day Q (we don’t test at the vaccine centres now, despite community transmission – which has shown a few people testing +ve after vaccine, meaning they likely were +ve when they had their vaccination).
    Those who receive their vaccination can be released to home quarantine with an electronic tag. Just a thought.
