Jabs should be made mandatory?

I refer to ‘Jabs should be made mandatory so measures can be eased for all’- Salma Khalik, page A4, ST 13 September 21.

To open up our economy even in an endemic is almost a ‘no choice decision’ because not doing so or even any further delay in so doing runs the risk of inflicting serious damages to our economy and among the many reasons for doing so, people need to earn a livelihood and people need to eat.

However, opening up our economy in an endemic entails clear, present and real dangers that everybody must understand enough and accept and to maximally mitigate the risks of serious illness and deaths among our people, vaccination even with its unknown future risks and experimental vaccine status is the lesser evil.

I ask if the MTF ever ponders deep enough to truly understand why do we still have so many people, about 500,000 people in our population who are eligible but continue to insist on a No to vaccination.

Apart from those hardcore anti-vax people, I believe that it is not unreasonable to believe that a very large number among them only prefer the traditional inactivated China vaccines, Sinovac and/or Sinopharm and unfortunately, those vaccines are totally out of stock now. I ask isn’t it the government’s job to ensure that it secures adequate supply for our people or could it be that it has other agendas?

Next, since our roadmap going forward is opening up our economy, then both the government and our people must be mentally and adequately prepared to accept sharp spikes in infection numbers, hospitalisation numbers, patients on oxygen support numbers and even death numbers from time to time and some of those numbers will be their loved ones including the old and the young at home. Your home! That will be the new reality.

Last but not least, ideally, our political leaders especially the MTF must make up of men of sterner stuff and not flinch or blink easily in the face of so called ‘exponential’ than expected spike numbers. Honestly and unfortunately, I don’t think we have such leaders. Being book-smart doesn’t necessarily makes one into more steady nerve and sterner stuff.

In case they forget, I want to remind them once again that we are no longer dealing with the original C19 variant but mutated C19 Delta and Delta Plus variants now and the viruses are still mutating and we could be faced with something new that maybe even more unpredictable, more transmissible and more dangerous than C19 Delta and Delta Plus going forward.

Think.

    Making a living is not essential?
    To live a normal life is not essential?
    Being prisoner in your home is justified?
    Starting, countries in Europe are getting tired of this fake ‘pandemic’. Govs are cracking and opening up.

    Response: Don’t THINK they are OUT OF STOCK! Given the Holee fact that our Coverment, particularly Mai Hum, have EARLIER SHOWN DISCRIMINATING ACTION AGAINST Chinese vaccine, Sinovac(arrived in SinKapore since Feb 2021 BUT WAS NOT GIVEN APPROVAL FOR POKING UNTIL JUN 2021, citing BS and Crap excuse that the Chinese Company didn’t SUBMIT ENOUGH DATA TO JUSTIFY THE APPROVAL)! MUST HAVE PROMPTED THE Chinese to RECIPROCATE by DELAYING(WAIT LOONG LOONG TAN CUCKOO)the request by the 4 medical groups NOW GIVEN APPROVAL BY HSA to bring in the NEXT AVAILABLE Chinese vaccine, Sinopharm to SinKapore. Another Holee REASON, is that HSA, under STRICT instruction of the Husband(Mai Hum)and Wifey(Holee Jinx)Tag Team, HAS TO RESTRICT AND CONTROL(BY DELAYING THE DELIVERY PROCEDURE)the AMOUNT OF Chinese vaccine, Sinopharm to be BROUGHT into SinKapore. That’s WHY the Tag Team is DESPERATE AND SWEATY UNDER THE ARMPIT WHEN NOT IF ALL the 500,000 UNVACCINATED FOLKS DECIDE TO WAIT LOONG LOONG TAN CUCKOO AND PAY $99 For the 2 doses of Sinopharm jab! WHICH MEAN THE HUGE STOCK OF THEIR HOLEE PFIZER VACCINE(Only 6 months shelf life)WILL START TO ROT OOPS TURN VERY BAD IN THEIR MINUS 70 degrees freezers! No wonder Mai Hum has Sooooooo generously donated their Holee Pfizer vaccines to Australia(500,000 doses)and Johore(100,000 doses)! Btw the Chinese has already DONATED MILLIONS and MILLIONS of their vaccines, Sinopharm and Sinovac to many POOR COUNTRIES ON PLANET EARTH as they KNOW WHO HAVE THE TOP PRIORITY TO GET THEM. Filthy RICH country like SINKAPORE can WAIT LOONG LOONG TAN CUCKOO!

    THE MANDATORY JAB crowd really got their an*ses found somewhere inside their skull. Yes, truly!

    Don’t believe me?

    Isn’t it the foundation of criminal law protection is found on “my body, my choice”? I am untouchable without my consent, even in hospital of a dead corpse!

    If not, yourself, your grandmother, mother, daughters, sons, nieces and all other siblings CAN ALL BE “LEGALLY RAPED” OR simply molested on the street/ public transports or anywhere else in broad daylight and the public watching “porn”.

    When law enforcement comes, the rapist/molester just tell the cops this – I have DONE NOTHING WRONG, ONLY BODILY VIOLATED my target, maybe he or she “enjoys” the drama theatre a lot more than me and SHOULD BE GRATEFUL!!

    The offender might as well “advise” the cops (and judge in the courtroom later) to “educate” the victim this – WHEN RAPE IS INEVITABLE, WHY NOT JUST LIE BACK AND AND ENJOY IT?

    mandatory job mobs ARE ALL IDIOTS!!!

    What is the point of making it mandatory when the vaccine cannot prevent infection or transmission? If people choose not to be vaccinated, we need to respect their decision. The argument that the unvaccinated can transmit the virus to others if infected no longer stands because the vaccinated can do the same.

    As is, from birth until age 12, there’re a host of mandatory jabs one needs to have.

    So mandatory vaccination is nothing new.

    But mandatory for adults, especially the elderly has never happened before, so it’s kind of hard to accept readily.

    I believe a large number of elderly who are not getting the jabs feel it unnecessary because they’re don’t venture out of their home much or they strongly believe if not sick; better not take medicine.

    TThis latest wave & the death of many mostly over 70, may change some minds.

    Bottom line is, everyone is free to make choices.
    So people like hossan leong should keep his criticism on this matter to himself.

    “including the old and the young at home. Your home! That will be the new reality.”

    Please stop referring to others. “Your home”. Start by saying “my home”. Say I am willing to sacrifice my family members, my parents, my siblings, my own children and I told this fact to them right in their faces.

  • Jabs and Not Vaccines:

    I refer to ‘Jabs should be made mandatory so measures can be eased for all’- Salma Khalik, page A4, ST 13 September 21

    Yes, they are simply jabs (not vaccines). They have all failed as vaccine all over the world. Why then still make it mandatory? This act is not going to make any difference to opening up. The situation is going to get worse even if 100% are jabbed.

    @ Smart Nation

    EXACTLY RIGHT there! Vaccine is NOT the HOLY GRAIL to a cure of covid infection. Let us not pretend otherwise.

    Smart Nation: What is the point of making it mandatory when the vaccine cannot prevent infection or transmission? If people choose not to be vaccinated, we need to respect their decision. The argument that the unvaccinated can transmit the virus to others if infected no longer stands because the vaccinated can do the same.

    There are some clear FACTS which vaccine fanatics would rather not acknowledge of reality or hear from the informed minds.

    Firstly, the lies of vaccine WEARS OUT FASTER on the road of truths include this irrefutable fact – its EFFICACY DIES WITH AGEING – not just the waning efficacy BUT ALSO THE INCREASING AGE of the vaccinated (because older ones’ immunity increasingly compromised as one ages – without vaccination they die and with vaccination they might die even faster of adverse effects).

    ‘Turbocharged’: High vaccination rates not enough to curb Covid

    https://au.news.yahoo.com/turbocharged-high-vaccination-rates-not-enough-curb-covid-053941061.html

    Turbo charged high vaccination rate is USELESS, even damaging of unknown proportion risks attached WHEN THE VIRUS KEEPS ON MUTATING to thwart its fast dwindling efficacy science & Pfizer acknowledge to last only a few months.

    Israel started its turbo-charged national vaccination last November – their vaccine efficacy HAS LONG VAPORISED TO ZERO EFFECTIVENESS.

    It is embarking on the “booster jab” of third dosage now, NOT YET IMPLEMENTED.

    But Israelis health authorities are ALREADY TALKING ABOUT BRINGING THE 4TH DOSE OF BOOSTER JABS.

    Israel weighing fourth round of coronavirus vaccines: report

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/israel-weighing-fourth-round-of-coronavirus-vaccines-report-2021-09-13?mod=mw_latestnews

    So with each cycle of “booster jabs” the efficacy declines faster and faster and each booster jab cycle in between progressively shrinking of effectiveness and safety/utility?

    COME ON, IT IS A STUPID PUPPY CHASING ITS OWN A*SE OF IDIOTIC FUTILITY, not tail.

    LEE-jiapore also wants to follow suit?

  • Harder Truths:

    simon, your belief is the belief of despots everywhere. The solution to any problme is the creation of the Police State. Adolph Hitler, Karl Marx, Mao, Idi Amin and now you – all want absolute power to do as you please, by whatever means necessary. Insisting you are right and everyone else is wrong, and that others must pay the price for your failures as a human being.

    The most important decision a person can make is that of life and death. You are saying the citizen has no choice for even his own life and is therefore a slave. We are lucky you are not in charge – you will be much worse than what is there now.

  • Make it available Sinopharm:

    The whole problem can be easily solved.
    Just make Sinovac and Sinopharm easily available on the same terms as Pifer etc
    The problem is not people do not want to vaccinated.
    The problem is why make it so difficult for people to get vaccinated with WHO approved Vaccine ?
    Respect people choice..it is their life.

  • Clear-minded:

    For those who believes the vaccine protects one from serious illness and death, and wants everyone to be vaccinated and the Govt making it mandatory, let me say this….just keep your opinion to yourself.

    Only time can tell if the mRNA vaccines have long term adverse side effects, and the clock is ticking closer to this time. For those unvaccinated, they do not need to worry over this ticking time-bomb.

    To proclaim that SG is moving into endemic stage is not just saying ‘endemic’. Govt must tell the population what the new norms are. Regretfully the only things in their mind is vaccination and SIA. Don’t be deceived that they want to open the economy by allowing local businesses (esp. F&B) to run like before. They just said so they are neither going to relax the restrictions nor call for another lockdown. What opening of the economy is that? Hokkien saying…”Mouth say, down there shiok”.

  • Lonely planet:

    Which organisation has a vested interest in the vaccine and which people have conflict of interest that they didn’t declare? You can easily check up who is a shareholder of Biontech.

    For every jab given, did they inform the person that the vaccine is not fully approved, long term data is not available, mild to serious side effects and deaths may occur, and the person will not be paid for the trial test? Furthermore, the person who went for the jab is considered to have taken his own responsibility, because he signed up / walk-in for the jabs voluntarily. The vaccine manufacturer is protected from being sued because the gahment has agreed to buy the vaccine and relief the manufacturer of liabilities.

    It’s no use for us to keep commenting when there are a lot of people who doesn’t read far and wide and will be misled by the gahment telling them that the vaccine is the cure. So they obediently went for the jabs and think that they will be free from Covid once and for all. That’s why you see a lot of people out in the streets mingling and some even without masks because they think that they are safe from Covid.

    People mingling is the problem, not because they are vaccinated or not. There are households who are 100% vaccinated and some have encountered Covid cases. On the contrary, some households are not fully 100% vaccinated and these people have no problem thus far.

    If they want to make the jabs mandatory, then every mother father must declare until their underwear, their interest in the vaccine. Laws must be in place so that the people must be able to claim compensation, yes, even for the pain the arm. Even for serious injuries and deaths within a time frame, regardless of whether the doctor says it’s because of vaccine or not.

    What protection do we have? We are injecting a foreign substance into our body and the study is not complete. Of course the vaccine is not a poison, so we won’t die from the vaccine. But the vaccine can cause other parts of the body to malfunction, so they declare deaths as other causes.

    They like to use the excuse that “the benefits outweigh the risks”. I will always ask “whose benefits and whose risks?”. The benefits may be for the country, but the risks are wholly our own. If the person unfortunately dies within a few days after the jab, then he has taken his ultimate risk unnecessarily. As for the gahmen, you think they care? I am not advising people against taking the vaccine, but we are all responsible for ourselves and our children. Do not force other people to do it. Do not force companies and establishments to do it on the gahmen’s behalf just because the gahmen doesn’t want to take up the responsibilities.
