PM: Lockdowns a thing of the past by Christmas as vaccine rollout ramps up
Wednesday, 28 July 2021, 06:06:24
Lockdowns could be a thing of the past by Christmas should the country reach its highest vaccination rates possible. Although only 13.9 per cent of Australians are fully vaccinated, the nation is administering over one million doses every week as the vaccine rollout ramps up. With more Pfizer doses expected in the coming weeks, Prime Minister Scott Morrison expects life will be different come summer break. With what we are seeing, bar any unforeseen events, then I believe by the end of the year we will be in that position, where everyone who has had the opportunity for a vaccine will have had it, and to ensure that Australians have joined that task in achieving the highest vaccination rates possible, he said. I would expect by Christmas we will be seeing a very different Australia to what we are seeing now. What we are seeing overseas is when countries do reach those much higher vaccination rates, then that does give their governments a lot more options in the suppression limitations they have to use to deal with the virus; lockdowns become a thing of the past when you are at that level.

Pfizer supplies to be redirected from the regions to year 12 students
Wednesday, 28 July 2021, 04:02:26
New South Wales Deputy Premier John Barilaro says the greatest threat to rural and regional New South Wales is a COVID-19 breach from Sydney as he urges all residents to get vaccinated. That is why vaccination is very, very important, and getting rates of vaccination especially in those eight LGAs up is going to be important in protecting regional and rural New South Wales, he said. Mr Barilaro said the regions supply of Pfizer would be redirected to the eight affected local government areas to be given to grade 12 students to support them in the most important part of their educational journey. This is about supporting year 12 students and those eight LGAs, students that are in their final year, and to redirect doses from the bush to those LGAs is appropriate and supported. The redirection of the Pfizer vaccine is important to make sure we give our year 12 students in those eight LGAs every opportunity.”
