The ACT Party has launched an idea called “Vax Bucks”.

This is to reward those who have got double-vaccinated.

It is a $250 tax credit that can be paid on your vaccination day or in your next tax return.

ACT leader David Seymour told Andrew Dickens one of the issues to deal with is how we use taxes that saves the public money, similar to smoking and alcohol.

“The idea here is that if you get vaccinated, you’re 96 per cent reducing the probability that you will go to hospital. So if you’re actually saving the healthcare system money, you should get some tax back.”
