It is unacceptable that there are still unvaccinated doctors and nurses in our public hospitals caring for Covid-19 or even potential Covid-19, patients,” Khorshid said. “We also know that our rural doctors in some parts of the country are struggling to access vaccinations for themselves as they often work hundreds of kilometres away from vaccination hubs.
All governments are accountable for the safe and timely delivery of a vaccine that will protect us from this rapid-moving, and very infectious virus.
The Commonwealth government needs to be transparent on the number of vaccines that have already been distributed, and what the projected quantities will be going forward.The government also needs to detail what contingency supply is being held so that the community has faith that there will be vaccine available when it comes time for their second dose.
Data showing how many vaccines have been administered by providers compared to what has been supplied should be available to the community.
