Re: An interesting dichotomy
May depend on whether you are classed as 'vulnerable' or not. We may follow the Brazilian example but it doesn't come cheap either.
After our restrictions came off I got it despite being triple jabbed and hence being vulnerable I received a very expensive monoclonal antibody infusion in a London Teaching Hospital (inc private ambulance to/from) courtesy of the NHS and the taxpayer. Money and resources taken, presumably, from the non-covid waiting list. Protecting me might have made a life or death difference to someone else.
I don't know the real answer but I would trust a decision made on scientific and economic terms rather than just political.
