GOVERNMENT ADMITS THEIR FIRST NATIONS' VACCINE BLITZ HAS FAILED FIRST NATIONS AUSTRALIANS

October 28, 2021

COVID vaccination rate for First Nations Australians have continued to fall further behind the rest of the country.
 
Health officials yesterday admitted the second dose gap for First Nations Australians has only reached 25.5 per cent.
 
The Government’s much-vaunted blitz has seen the double dose vaccination gap widen by 6.3 per cent since 12 September, not shrink.
 
As always, Scott Morrison’s government put all its effort into the announcement, and none into delivering.
 
The Prime Minister promised First Nations Australians they would be vaccinated by winter. In reality, First Nations Australians won’t be fully vaccinated until almost next winter.
 
The Government has to start living up to its vaccination promises instead of putting all its effort into the announcement and then hiding its failings.
