Cost to the taxpayer
Firstly, the vaccines were secured we done so a a minimal cost. This does not have to impact anyone's pocket further to have this done, as we are paying our taxes, as well as businesses every month. It is funny how only in SA our Govt sees fit to increase taxes in a time where almost 50% of our population is unemployed. If we look to the source nobody in Govt. is able to account for the 527billion. and the people must suffer for their blatant corruptions. Secondly GOVT is incapable of doing this rollout they have proved this to us the nation during the Covid rescue operation.... which went totally array. ONLY private sector can oversee this competently... but if Govt. insists they are the best people for the job then you know CORRUPTION IS KNOCKING ON THE DOOR AGAIN!!!

Cost to the taxpayer
There are so many concerns that it's hard to choose just one!
I am concerned that the roll-out will not be done effectively, resulting in a half-baked roll-out that will end up causing more harm than good.
I am concerned that corruption will rear its ugly head (as we have already witnessed with the PPE scandal) and that the cadres are already lining up and licking their lips in anticipation of a nice contract and inflated pricing of the vaccines.
I am concerned that there is a suggestion by the finance minister that taxes will be raised to pay for the vaccines, while failed SOEs like Eskom and SAA continue to be bailed out.
Finally, I'm very concerned about the idea of a Covid passport - the Department of Home Affairs already cannot fulfil its mandate to the citizens of South Africa so how does government expect to be able to competently issue Covid passports?? I foresee a situation where an individual has had the required vaccine doses and desperately needs the Covid passport in order to be able to travel or go to work, but has to wait weeks or months before it is issued.

Ek hou nie van die bestandele wat in die entstof is nie.
Ek vertrou nie entstof nie, want dit is gans te vinnag uit gerol.
Die dood syfer word deur die media op geblaas, en dus voel ek nie die entstof is nodig nie.
Ek voel daar is duistere moviewe agter die entstof en paspoort/ID

Mandatory vaccination
At the beginning of Lockdown all the experts and media said that it take at least 7 years to make a safe vaccine. Now, suddenly we have it in less than a year. All the science says it cannot be safe.

Yes I do
Roll-out by government
We have lost faith in the government and I don't believe that they will be able to manage the roll out effectively. I also don't believe that prisoners should be some of the first citizens to receive the vaccine. The vaccine would be better served on tax paying, law abiding citizens who make a positive contribution to society

Effectiveness of the vaccine
Covid is a type of influenza that is already mutating. How can a vaccine based on the first covid virus be effective against the new mutations? This vaccination should be mandatory until its efficacy has been fully tested, worldwide.

Roll-out by government
For any vaccine roll-out to be effective, the government has to partner with the private sector. Their unwillingness to do so reflects their narrow minded short-sightedness we have become familiar with. They are intent on disregarding good policy and good advice and instead blunder forward at immense cost to ordinary South Africans.
