No Vaccination, No Rates

Michael from Trentham

There are 200,000-300,000 people in NZ who refuse to get vaccinated (to help prevent the spread of Covid and help lesson the effects of Covid if they themselves get it) who therefore are themselves prevented from going to certain places or attending certain events because they are not vaccinated or fully vaccinated.

As reported in the DomPost, some of these people are calling for a deduction in their local and regional council rates because of the council-owned or organised facilities they cannot attend.

This of course is nonsense as there are many, many people in NZ fully Covid vaccinated and in pre-Covid vaccination times who don't use or utilise many of the council facilities and amenities and yet must pay their full rates bill.

For a few years now I don't use in Upper Hutt, its libraries and swimming pool. Other people don't attend or use the civic centre, Expressions/Whirinaki Centre and the various parks, reserves and playgrounds and yet we all contribute fully to the greater good of the community.

Sorry anti-vaxxers - pay up.
