will our tax be raised to fund the covid vaccine in South Africa

A blog article discussing the measure proposed by South Africa to fund their vaccination. The author of the article expresses mixed feelings about it because it makes them feel like they could help in any way, but that doesn’t mean that they are all for it.

will our tax be raised to fund the covid vaccine in South Africa

Our tax will be raised to fund the covid vaccine in South Africa. If we do not raise our taxes, a lot of people in the world will die from diseases that could easily be prevented. There are a lot of great causes out there and this is one that we should help with because it’s going to save a lot of lives.

Who may benefit from the new vaccine?

The Covid vaccine will be available for free to all children and pregnant and nursing mothers in South Africa. The government expects that over 400,000 kids will get the free vaccine during its first year of administration.

Is it safe for everyone?

It is a misconception that South Africa is currently free from HIV/AIDS. In fact, it has the highest number of new cases in the world with over 100,000 now being newly infected every year. This high risk of infection is primarily due to the low levels of knowledge about sexual health and an increase in unprotected sex without condoms. This means that there is pressure on the government to provide vaccination services to prevent the further spread of this virus.

Why is South Africa taking such a risk?

South Africa recently approved the Covid vaccine, which will help prevent cervical cancer in women under age 30. The vaccine has not yet been approved by the FDA, so South Africa – which is already struggling to fund healthcare – is taking a risk by funding this expensive vaccine.

What if we don’t get the funds needed to vaccinate all children?

The covid vaccine has been created to prevent a common strain of meningitis, which is estimated to kill 20,000 people each year. In order to take the vaccine out of the hands of parents and doctors who have been administering it since 2009, government officials have added this new drug to their list of essential drugs. The South African government has committed itself to vaccinating 100% of children under five by December 2017. If they don’t get the funds soon enough then they could be put in a tight spot.

How does this affect healthcare for those who live in South Africa and how do we fight for this?

The Covid vaccine is a potential cure for Covisyl which is a deadly virus spreading across Africa that mainly affects women and children. This vaccine could be life-changing for those living in South Africa as well as the rest of the world. Just like other vaccines, this one costs a lot of money to create and develop. So, should our taxes go up to support the development of this vaccine?

The best solution for this is the Covid vaccine, which has been approved and will be mandatory. The bill will allow the government to raise taxes to fund this vaccine and other measures that will not require people to pay more tax or pay for private health care.
