Discriminatory Covid-19 policies

Severe side effects from first vaccine jab: 3 months already – yet to approve her request to take Sinovac under the special access route?

(Today, Oct 11) “Some called the new measures extreme, discriminatory and more restrictive than the curbs imposed during the circuit breaker period from April to June last year, when dining in was banned for all.
Their reactions were similar to unvaccinated people whom TODAY approached. Those who were interviewed were either medically unfit to take the vaccine or had chosen not to be vaccinated.

Ms Siti Hamzah, who suffered from severe side effects from her first Pfizer vaccine jab in June, called the measures “really unfair”.

She said that MOH has yet to approve her request to take the Sinovac vaccine under the special access route. She submitted her request three months ago.

Under this route, those who have been rejected from taking mRNA vaccines due to severe allergies can receive the Sinovac vaccine for free at an approved private clinic.

“If you want to restrict unvaccinated people, that’s fine but vaccinate those who want (the vaccine) first before you implement these restrictions,” said Ms Siti.

Ms Siti said that after the announcement of the measures, she made arrangements to be vaccinated with Sinopharm for about S$100 at a private clinic on Tuesday.

Ms Daphne Koh, a 43-year-old homemaker, described the measures as “a really big interruption to family life”.
Ms Koh, who chose not to take the vaccine due to the lack of long-term data on its effects, said that she would be unable to run errands or take her children for tuition lessons. The tuition centre they attend is located in a mall.

She was also upset that she would not be able to accompany her children to attractions such as the zoo during the school holidays.

Ms Koh suggested that rather than segregating people based on their vaccination status alone, the Government should segregate based on their risk profiles such as a combination of the age and vaccination status instead.
Similarly, Ms Stephanie Choo, who chose not to get vaccinated as she is concerned about the risk of side effects, described the measures as “being put on house arrest”.

The 41-year-old homemaker said that while some errands such as grocery shopping can be done online, there are others such as purchasing assessment books or shoes for her children that are still better done at malls.
She added that she was still thinking about how she will adjust to the measures.

She is considering having her 13-year-old daughter, who is also unvaccinated, attend online tuition classes. She is also enquiring if her daughter’s piano teacher can conduct private lessons at home.

Her daughter currently attends these lessons at centres located in malls.”

    For those UNVACCINATED FOLKS who BADLY AFFECTED by this draconian rules imposed by the Husband(Mai Hum)and Wifey(Holee Jinx)Tag Team and by extension their mouthpiece, the World Class Ministerial Trash Force of the 3 STOOGES, please REMEMBER VIVIDLY WHO HAVE CAUSED YOU AND YOUR FAMILY THIS MISERY WHEN YOU MARK ON THE BALLOT PAPER IN THE NEXT GE!

    THIS IS THE END RESULT WHEN 62.14% HAVE CHOSEN TO GIVE THE PAPIGS AND BY EXTENSION MAI HUM A STRONG MANDATE “TO DO WHATEVER I WANT” WHEN HE UTTERED “FOR YOU, WITH YOU, FARK YOU”!

    Well, I hope those who are affected by the ruling, please wake up and vote for the opposition parties and get more into parliament. This is the only way to get opposition to voice them unfair treatment.

    If you have voted for the PAP in the last few election, then you have to blame yourself for being so stupid and blind.

    Just a quick point.

    If unvaccinated people are barred from entering malls, they will also be denied some essential services – or at the very least be hugely inconvenienced.

    For instance, if the unvaccinated person’s bank is in a mall they will not be able to peruse banking services there. As an example, OCBC, UOB and Maybank all have branches at NEX mall in Serangoon. So how?

  • illiterate pap voters:

    pap behavior is as expected.

    elites imposing elitist idea and rule on peasants.

    it is hoped, for once, the peasants realize it is now time to have a New Government in place of pap.

    otherwise, such elitist behavior shall affect not only the peasants but also their grandchildren.

    Good to know some people still have minds of their own.
    Not everyone in this red dot are sheep or are forced to become one due to discrimination of whatever kind.
    I bet the sgov didnt see this coming , ie resistence against being vaccinated and speaking out against this unfair treatment.
    The gov must have thought the sheeple would all be rushing to get shot!!

    This is clearly another form of sgporeans BASHING by the gahmen.
    These arrogant gahmen made the serious mistake of recklessly dumping DELTA Infected CECA-FTs n relatives to *quarantine* in TINY sg and integrate with sgs n causing DELTA SPREAD.
    Yet,the same daft gahmen want to DISCRIMINATE UNINFECTED UNVAXXED sgs?

    This is total nonsense!

    This is a very grave injustice done to all law-abiding citizens by the order-taker cum price-taker, Minister Lawrence Wong.

    Mr LKY mercilessly rebuked the Health Minister Lim Hng Khiang publicly on national TV when he noticed that hospital safety measures were lacking during the SAR endemic when his wife was admitted to hospital.

    Lim Hng Khiang had to convened a press conference to apologize for the hospital shortcoming.

    Coming back to the present.

    What is the PM going to do about all the mess-up and public disquiet these two, OYK and LW had caused to Singapore?

    The Father is strong. The Son is weak. Why? The Father is equally hard on his opponents and his ministers. The people appreciate his fairness, though he can be a cruel man. The Son can be equally or not more than cruel to his opponents but wants to be popular with the erroneous ministers at the expense of the country. The Father is steady. The Son is an insecure man.

    What do PRITAM N WP MPs think on this matter of letting in Delta-infected FTs into Sg that is probably the main reason for its wildfire spread in tiny Sg n the current mall-discrimination against unvaxxed sgs?

    Why casually allowed INFECTED CECA-FTs into Sg but bar unvaxxed sgs from even entering malls?

    Bashing of sgs must be stopped.

  • opposition dude:

    That’s the PAP for you, always doing things from the textbook. They don’t care about inconveniencing people and just lump all unvaccinated ones together irregardless of age. As far as they are concerned, if you are unvaccinated then you are devil spawn.

    As we all know from the daily reported deaths it’s the elderly passing on and not the younger generations. Common sense tells you that this group of unvaccinated seniors are the most at risk so the rules should be targeted at them instead. But we all know PAP are idiots anyway.

  • Muddle-headed Task Force:

    https://sg.news.yahoo.com/3190-new-covid-cases-in-singapore-9-more-deaths-151024688.html

    Singapore’s 184th through 192nd fatalities were all Singaporeans: six men and three women aged between 52 and 98.

    Among them, six had been unvaccinated against COVID-19, two had been partially vaccinated and one had been fully vaccinated.

    Eight of them had various underlying medical conditions, while an unvaccinated case had no known medical conditions. The 52-year-old fatality had been partially vaccinated and had multiple underlying medical conditions, said the MOH.

    MTF WITH NON-QUALIFIED MEDICAL BACKGROUND DIDN’T MANAGE THE MEASURES THE LATEST BANNING UNVACCINATED FROM MALLS & DINING-IN COFFEESHOPS & HAWKER CENTRES BASED ON SCIENCE BUT ON THEIR “WHIMS & FANTASIES”.

    BECAUSE FROM THE MOH DATA EVEN VACCINATED WITH UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS ARE VULNERABLE & DIED FROM COVID!

    WHETHER VACCINATED OR UNVACCINATED MTF SHOULD BAN THE VULNERABLES!

    IT IS HIGH TIME TO REPLACE THE MTF!

  • There’s no point harping on the daily infected figures anymore, vaxxed, unvaxxed, how many kenna, how many died, all meaningless now.

    Sinkieland has reached the point of no return because even though the clowns at MTF is silent and not willing to admit, there are hundreds of thousands that are infected by now, symptomatic or asymptomatic (estimated with with an R0 of 6).

    Should they do an abrupt u-turn in the policy and try to adopt a zero-c19 policy now, they will find hundreds of thousands that are infected (mild or otherwise), where can they quarantine these people, Pulau Ubin, St John’s Island or Tekong?

    There will be huge logistic consideration and more $$$ need be spent, you think those at MTF are authorised to utilise huge sums of $$$ to save the daft peasants meh?

    Since C19 vaccination offers NO immunity against the C19, naturally what remains now is to allow almost the entire populace (4 million and above) to be infected and pray for that elusive “herd immunity”, failing which, the island will be inhabited mostly with Sillyzens that are injured, if they are not already dead by then.

    Herd Immunity: resistance to the spread of an infectious disease within a population that is based on pre-existing immunity of a high proportion (83% to 94%) of individuals as a result of previous infection or vaccination.

    Such discrimination is driven by fear and not science. Based on statistical probability, the COVID spreaders are more likely from vaccinated. Discrimination should be made illegal.

    BTW, I didn’t know that one has to seek approval to use Sinovac, that is indeed news to me, while where I am, you just walk in, fill up a medical questionaire and then go through medical checks (BP, etc) and then see a doctor, who will advise you to take the jab or not.

    @TreTechie

    The Real Hard Truth about $G born. They do not care about anyone or anything other than their own backsides. You can talk about good and evil and death and how the regime screw up. Does not matter. They will believe the bullshit because they want to. Anything else is too hard for them.

    How are you going to reason with people who do not care about what you say, unless it puts a few dollars i ntheir pocket. Yes, the yare that dumb. And cowardly. And unforgiving.

    I have seen JB Jeyaratnam begging for people to buy his book at City Hall MRT. Yes, I bought two from him and I fought with him at Anson. No one else walking by cared. People he fought for, suffered for, and died for just did not care.

    For people that have no loyalty, no honour, no good in them, I realised ling ago there is no way they will change, and the only solution is for them to go down with the ship.

    Because at the end of the day – they deserve to.

    Tech: I couldn’t agree with you more. I do believe in karma and when it strikes, it doesn’t matter whether you are an aristocrat or a peasant. There is a Chinese saying “Heaven has eyes”, and I firmly believe in that too.

    Actually if you are vaccinated, you shoUld not be worried about the unvaccinated.
    It is the UNVACCINATED who should be worried about the UNVACCINATED because they are the one spreading the virus and falling sick and dying.
    Actually the UNVACCINATED should be segregated from the UNVACCINATED.
