GOVERNMENT CLUELESS ON VACCINATIONS FOR HOMELESS AUSTRALIANS

June 04, 2021

Today in Senate Estimates it was revealed the Morrison Government has no idea how many homeless Australians have been vaccinated. 
 
Instead, they said it was a matter for the states. 
 
The vaccination rollout is the responsibility of the Federal Government and Scott Morrison is failing miserably. 
 
After failing to answer how many aged care residents and workers have got their jab, it beggars belief the Morrison Government has no idea how many Australians sleeping rough have been vaccinated. 
 
Minister Ruston also refused to outline how homeless Australians would be vaccinated, instead fobbing that off to the states too. 
 
This is not good enough. 
 
Homeless Australians experience some of the worst health outcomes in Australia, leading to an average lifespan of twenty to thirty years younger than Australians who have a roof over their head. 
 
Scott Morrison doesn’t have a plan for the vaccine rollout.

The opening of our economy is dependent on people getting jabs in their arms. The longer the wait, the more lockdowns we’ll see.
