The NSW Doctors Reform Society today supported the proposal to pay every Australian who is fully vaccinated by december 1st a $300 incentive as a vital lifesaver that will help end lockdowns.

“The proposal to pay every Australian who is vaccinated by 1st December a $300 incentive is a long overdue recognition that it is urgent that every Australian becomes vaccinated as soon as possible to save lives and livelihoods.”said Dr Con Costa President of NSW Doctors Reform Society.(DRS)
“The NSW lockdown is costing over one Billion dollars a week and an investment of $5 billion now to achieve 80% of vaccination by december 1st is an excellent proposal to save lives and livelihoods”said Dr Costa
‘Äustralia has the lowest vaccination rate in the developed world because of the federal governments attitude to the covid vaccine rollout of ” ïts not a race” resulting in confused messaging to the public about the urgency of vaccination. The $300 incentive for vaccination by 1st december tells Australians that it is urgent and important they get vaccinated. “said Dr Costa
“Äs Doctors we are seeing peoples physical ,mental and financial health being damaged every day as a result of the lockdowns and is a matter of life and death that governments give every incentive,including financial, to Australians to get vaccinated to end lockdowns.The $300 incentive for vaccination truely could be a life saver”Said Dr Robert Marr Vice president DRS(NSW)
