Vaccinate to protect you, your family and community

Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Health

Anti-vax messaging being distributed by Clive Palmer is deeply irresponsible and dangerous, and goes against the expert advice of Public Health.

Fortunately, I expect most Tasmanians will see Clive Palmer on the pamphlet and throw it in the bin.

Vaccination is an important way to protect you, your family and the community against COVID-19, and I’m pleased Tasmanians have been so positive and eager to receive their jab.

As of yesterday, 197,389 doses have been administered across the state, with more than 35 per cent of eligible Tasmanians having had at least one dose.

Tasmanians across the state can access vaccinations through their local Tasmanian Government clinics or through a participating GP clinic.

The health, safety and wellbeing of all Tasmanians remains our number one priority, and I’d like to thank the community for rolling up their sleeve to get their jab.

Appointments can be booked by calling the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 or online at www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au/booking
