Is a Private Covid Vaccination Legit?

After a year of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s such great news that vaccines are now available. However, there is one issue: the shortage of Covid vaccines.

Gaps in Distribution

There are challenges with the production of the Covid vaccine. Researchers noted that it might take up to 4 years to produce enough vaccines to immunize the whole population.

There is a slow rollout plus a very long line waiting for their turn. As expected, people are anxious and

overwhelmed. A global pandemic is out here disrupting lives, vaccines are scarce, and a long queue is waiting; of course, everyone is nervous.

The emergence of Private Coronavirus Vaccine

Due to the scarcity of vaccines, people are looking for ways to jump the queue. The thing about low supply is that it stimulates demand. The more people on the queue, the more desperate people become to get the vaccine.

The scarcity event inspired the emergence of the vaccination-for-pay/private vaccination option. People now pay private centers or clubs for fast immunization against the coronavirus. This option is currently going rampant in the US and Dubai.

Is Vaccination for Pay Fake?

Vaccination-for-pay seems like a good alternative, but it’s worth stressing that there’s no way to tell if what’s being administered is fake or real.In the US, federal officials warned the public that some people would start to capitalize on the situation byoffering scam vaccines to steal people’s money.

Unlike vaccines administered in authorized vaccination centers, there’s no way to tell if private Covid vaccines are fake or not. It’ll be a pathetic situation if someone pays a massive amount of money only to get the fake vaccine.

The Fate of Low-income Countries

It’s important to note that while some countries are making progress with immunization, many nations are far behind in procuring the vaccine. Privileged People in these countries seek other alternatives such as buying their way abroad in quest of private coronavirus vaccination. It’s hard to blame them for choosing this route.

Is Vaccination for Pay Ethical?

People have an obligation to get the vaccine, protect themselves against the deadly virus, and help society combat it. So, does it matter how they get the vaccine?

It’s one thing to get the vaccine through a Government approved center; it’s another to choose the vaccination-for-pay option.

Like every other controversial issues, private Covid-19 vaccines moral accessibility can be debatable. While it poses a few challenges on one hand, on the other hand, it’s logical to argue that the affluent ones that can afford Covid-for-pay will contribute disproportionately. This has the possibility to boost economy at the long run, a win-win for everyone.

Economic Perspective

Many countries, including the UK, do not welcome the idea of private vaccination.

Meanwhile, according to Economics experts, the vaccine program will cost countries a lot. It seems like a

good approach to relieve the burden off the government through the private vaccination option.

In Pakistan, the cabinet permitted business sectors to start private vaccination for those who can pay while

the government arranges the vaccine for those who can’t.

Also, the COVID-19 vaccines have a limited shelf life, and vaccination-for-pay helps get the vaccine in someone’s arms rather than put it to waste.

Conclusion

While private Covid vaccination may fuel certain arguments and spur diverse opinions among people, we need to look at it from both the health and economy perspectives. Does it offer ultimate benefit? Can it alleviate the weight on government-monitored vaccine? Does it eliminate prejudice and selective vaccination? If the answer is yes, then why don’t we explore it as a sustainable alternative.
