Possible lifesaver vaccine mandate a ‘storm in a teacup’
Sky News Queensland Editor Peter Gleeson claims a discussion about a likely Palaszczuk government vaccine mandate for lifesavers is a “storm in a teacup”.
There is considerable concern amid the public and lifesaving group about a absence of stance from the condition surf lifesaving system on COVID-19 vaccination.
Mr Gleeson claimed a vaccine mandate would coincide “with this obligatory regime that Queensland Wellbeing have introduced in, expressing that if you are a nurse and you’re not entirely vaccinated, you won’t have a occupation unless of course you are granted a specific exemption”.
“The lifesavers are there to do a work, they do a fantastic job, and they’re exceptional at what they do,” he said.
“I’d instead get the possibility, if I was washed out and concerning the flags – and a lifesaver arrived alongside, I’m not likely to be asking that lifesaver if he’s double vaxxed or if he’s been analyzed for COVID.”
