  • OT How much does yours cost?

    The price of Covid 19 innoculations varies greatly from different manufacturers.

    In the UK, some revealing figures have just been published. This is what the NHS is being charged.

    Moderna £24- £28 per dose.
    Pfizer/Biontech £15 per dose.
    Oxford/Astra-Zenica £3 per dose.

      Get the ones that don't need refrigeration.
      They contain extra mercury to keep them fresh.

        In my county in southern Utah, USA, they're free to the public. They do say they 'may' collect insurance info, but the recipient isn't on the hook for anything.

          And are you spouting off from your lower sphincters, or do you have actual knowledge of this?

                  The general public do not pay for being vaccinated, taxes fund the NHS. I was trying to highlight the profiteering going on. Of course, the usual readiness to believe everything on the internet without questioning the "facts" seems to be the norm. Keep swigging the bleach as recommended by an expert.

                    You would not believe me no matter what I presented, so why should I waste my time?
                    The burden to verify the truth is on you sir, not me.

                        COVID testing and inoculation are funded by the US government. Cost? Don't know.

                          The testing in my area has always been charged to the patient or their insurance. Out of pocket can be over $100 depending on which test and test site you use. The antibody tests are pretty cheap now, or free if you donate blood to the red cross.

                              Is the NHS paying the same as they are being charged?

                              I went to get a prescription refilled recently. Pharmacist said nope, Insurance won't pay without "prior authorization". Great. How long will that take. Up to 7 days I'm told. Pharmacist will fill the prescription but I would need to pay out of pocket, and it's gonna be pricey. A week is a long time to go without much needed medication. I mumbled a few words, maybe audible, and stormed out. I just don't carry that amount of cash, and didn't have the credit card with me. Next day, after breaking open the piggy bank, I go to get the medication. Pharmacist says that by paying out of pocket he might be able to "find" me a discount. Turned out to be 82% off the price I was quoted the day before.

                              Where do the taxes come from that fund the NHS?
