If so, I will drive to the Sydney showground one. I take it this a NATIONAL vaccination drive and you are not locked into state borders. The implication follows that $30 per shot fee will be collected by NSW health, plus some other money, while Calvary will miss out on easy revenue. Naturally when I drive to Sydney I spend $400 or so, thus ACT misses out on $40 GST tax as well. (and the employment aspect -restaurants , shops, supermarkets, and a buy-up at Flemmington fruit and veggie markets). As Canberra mechanics want $160-$240 per hour, I also take my car to Granville to get serviced, leaving Costco on a full tank. This is why little annoyances like not updating a booking announcement - lead to avoidable revenue loss. Or the time I dropped $5000 at RPA Private.I heard on the ABC last night that Calvary had been booked solid now until sometime in June. We registered online on 4 May and had the 'invitation to book' an hour later. At that time, slots were wide open this week and forward. I think we were very lucky to have got in early.
