The COVID-19 vaccine roll-out is happening in stages, with our most at risk invited to go first.
Phase 1a of the vaccination started last month! (Did you see the news?) 1a allows everyone working in front line health care, aged and disability care, and quarantine and border control to be vaccinated right now. It is also offered to people living in aged and disability care.
From 22 March, Phase 1b will start. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are part of this phase. Also, all elderly adults over 70 and any adults with underlying medical conditions or disabilities will be able to come forward.
Phase 2a will include adults over the age of 50, and the rest of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults who haven’t received their vaccine yet. Finally, 2b will be for everyone left! If you miss your phase, no worries! You can receive your vaccination in all following phases.
