It depends what you're trying to do with "the rules".
Risking posting something you know already, the idea of vaccination is it stimulates the vaccinated body's immune system to produce antibodies to a given disease, which could be preferable to catching the actual disease if that's fatal.
Otoh, actually catching the disease also stimulates a body's immune system to produce antibodies to the disease, that's how said body survives the disease.
Aiui, the reason both the Oz tennis organisation and the Victorian state government granted Djokovic exemption is he's had the actual disease?
Aiui (several medics in the family), there isn't any medical reason for vaccinating anyone (not just Djokovic) against any disease they've had recently (Djokovic has had it in the last month?). Moreover, empirically, it's known vaccination in such circumstances can cause an unwanted reaction, although apparently little research has been done specifically into giving someone a Covid-19 vaccine when said someone has had the actual disease recently.
So, if there isn't any medical reason for vaccination, what'd be the reason for enforcing "the rules" regardless?
>Australians have suffered severe lockdown restrictions.
True but, as at least one of the Oz contributors has posted in the past, that's at least in part because:-
. Some Richard Cranium let loads of infected passengers and crew disembark from several ships without ensuring they couldn't mix with then-uninfected Australians ...
. Certain communities long-resident in Australia have ignored "the rules" long before Djokovic arrived there ...
