Vaccine now offered to anyone 70 or over. 98% of Victor Harbor to be inoculated by next week.

As the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out enters the next phase, any person over the age of 70 is eligible for the jab.

This has caused chaos at our State’s largest retirement village, Victor Harbor. With a whopping 98% of the town’s residents now meeting the criteria for vaccination, demand is high in the area.

‘I haven’t seen such mayhem since Hotel Victor offered the “Parmi and Pokies Dinner Special” from 3 to 4pm’ said local resident Elle Durley ‘The lineup for “Where’s the Gold?” stretched all the way to the buffet. I had to play “Dolphin Treasure” instead. What a nightmare, I was playing 20 lines for ages before I got the feat-‘ she then carried on about the pokies for at least half an hour. Seriously, how can old people operate an intricate complex computerised gaming device, but can’t figure where the power button is on a television remote?

However, not all residents are pleased with the vaccination rollout. Adelaide Mail spoke with one of the area’s youngest residents Franklin Paradé, 67 of Encounter Bay, who stated ‘I’m sick of Victor Harbor youths, like myself, always missing out on opportunities in this area. It’s discrimination, just last week I missed out on the “Senior’s Special” at The Crown, and now this’.

With queues at vaccination sites almost becoming as long as that of the Port Elliot Bakery, it seems the vast majority of the population will be fully vaccinated within weeks.
