Government has decided to fast track the vaccine rollout by allowing people in the 18-35 age group to register and be vaccinated. 

Covid-19 vaccine doses

The COVID-19 vaccine debate has never been hotter. Take it, say the medical professionals and the vaccine believers. No, say the vaccine debaters and naysayers, influenced by social media and complex healthcare concerns. It’s a debate that has broken up families and friendships, and is now posing a very real threat to the stability of the workplace. It’s also one that has slipped into a grey area where organisation and individual stand at an impasse as work from home becomes work from office and the vaccinated and the unvaccinated face a stand-off.

Good news, the vaccine rollout is on track and more of the population will be vaccinated within the next few months.
