Many employers have the right to mandate the health status of their employees. Having had to do many physical examinations, get Hep vaxs, and pass drug tests in order to perform my roles safely (as directed by my employer). Failing to do so would make me ineligible to do that role. Getting a flu vax so the company is able to keep its staff safe and keep its doors open is no different. Harry of Darwin shoots his own letter down in flames by saying the vaccinated are infecting the unvaccinated. Does he think we should all remain unvaccinated and continue with lockdowns? Get vaccinated! If the unemployed arent vaccinated and can travel around freely, while us who work cant work unless vaccinated, arent the unemployed now a danger to the health of the public and themselves? If an unemployed person gets sick, do they lose their benefits? Dave in Katherine The protest against everything to do with vaccine people are a danger to us Pelting coppers with rocks? Lock them up. 3 months. Not at work to be abused or assaulted, isnt that what the ads say on telly? Lindsay, Leanyer Good work Police, its a shame these unvaxxed fools are tying up poorly needed emergency services. D These muppets need to just get with the program and get the shot. its that easy. Daniel We can only hope while they were tying up valuable police resources their homes were being broken into. Darwinite Good work NT police how funny listening to that protester shout you work for us. Did they forget they dont pay tax on their welfare payments!!! Jack If all those protesters are not vaccinated they should be locked down otherwise cop a 5k fine. Richard JACK HENDERSON, LARRAKEYAH I have heard about the people who are against the vaccine. I have had a double vaccine and had no effects from it. I am 73 years old. It is better to take it than do nothing. It might even save your life. all, these people wouldnt feel bad if they infect others, in fact they say its their freedom, they have already proven themselves to be liars and conspiracy theorist with a contempt for the law of the land, these are the people that will wreck it for everyone trying there hardest to do the right thing, these people will be the reason for bad things to come. Why didnt police arrest each of the attention seeking protesters yesterday? Pretty sure they hadnt had both shots and being in public without a mask. Mark, Wulagi Until people actually get fined they will continue these protests.
