Vaccine update and wastewater testing in Tasmania

Sarah Courtney,Minister for Health

I am proud of the job Tasmanians have done in working together to keep on top of COVID.

It has been an exciting time in recent weeks as we’ve kicked off the COVID-19 vaccination rollout, with Phase 1B now well underway in our communities.

There have now been more than 10,000 vaccinations delivered through the State Government program, with new clinics online this week, and Phase 1A on track to be completed next month.

I recently detailed the State Government’s new community clinics as part of our vaccine program, and it was brilliant to visit the Kingston clinic which opened its doors on Monday.

The staff at the Kingston clinic have done an amazing job, as they have in so many locations around the State, putting the infrastructure and services in place to meet our needs during this pandemic.

I can advise that the Mowbray clinic, housed at the race track, will be getting underway tomorrow and is a very welcome addition to our vaccination campaign.
