AstraZeneca and Pfizer doses from overseas are being given to frontline health and hotel quarantine workers, as well as aged and disability care residents and staff, as part of phase 1a.

The federal government has put more than $6 billion towards Australia’s coronavirus vaccine rollout, with contracts for more than 150 million doses in total and one third to be made by pharmaceutical giant CSL in Victoria.

The home-made doses are expected to be available in time for phase 1b.

He said over 81,000 Australians have so far been vaccinated.

Two weeks ago Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly were among the first to be vaccinated with the Pfizer jab.

  1. Maybe a little Karma for both these political scumbags.
    Hoping their recovery stress equals the stress they have applied to the people namely mental, physical and economical.
