COVID vaccination rollout underway after Scott Morrison receives jab.
Australia on vaccination drive from today all preparations on full swing.
Hubs have been set up across the country so that health and border control workers, and aged care residents and their carers can get the Pfizer vaccine, starting Monday.
Australia’s largest-ever vaccine rollout has begun in what NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has described as a “game-changer”.
Vaccinations across the country started after Scott Morrison led a small band of people to get the nation’s first COVID-19 jabs on Sunday.
“It is the beginning of time when all of us can think about going back to life as normal as possible,” Berejiklian told reporters on Monday.
The prime minister was one of 20 people to get the jab at a Sydney medical centre on Sunday, in what Morrison described as the “curtain raiser” to the full rollout.
He joined Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly and Chief Nursing Officer Alison McMillan getting vaccinated, along with two aged-care residents, aged carers, health workers and defence personnel.
