Vaccine rollout


Tasmania is the best performing State in the nation for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in State run clinics.

We remain on track to achieve our targets under the first phase of the ongoing rollout.

However, I am concerned with the delays and lack of communication from the Federal Government about their rollout for residents and staff at disability and aged care residential facilities.

We are in a good place but we cannot afford to go backwards, and with the world’s death toll from COVID-19 now over 3 million, it is absolutely imperative we get this right so we can return to a more normal way of living.

I will be raising these concerns at National Cabinet tomorrow as a matter of priority, including that the State is prepared to step in and assist the Federal Government with their rollout.
