NSW could be vaccinated sooner than expected
The NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says the whole state could be vaccinated against COVID-19 within months.
The rollout of the vaccine started yesterday with those who work in the hotel quarantine system and frontline healthcare workers at the front of the queue.
The Premier told ABC radio that even though October has been flagged as the deadline for everyone in the community to receive their jab, it could be much earlier than that.
“We’re hopeful that if some of the supplies that we hadn’t anticipated are coming in sooner than expected, it could be within months that large cohorts of the public are invited to have the vaccine.”
