The long lines at several health centres across the country on Wednesday should be cause of concern. There seemed to be chaos at some centres. There was lacklustre physical distancing, putting people at risk.

People could have been given appointments for the jabs on the two holidays last week, but this opportunity was wasted for a stricter 10 am to 5 am curfew.
The Government may have to go back to the appointment system, but a more organised and efficient one. In the meantime, while people await their appointments they must adhere to the basics of washing hands, watching their distance and wearing masks.
