Premier: Vaccination of all Australians by October
Australia, which has so far gotten mildly through the epidemic with tough measures, has ambitious goals: the entire population is to be immunized in the autumn. The vaccination campaign has not even started yet. Vaccination is essentially emerging with discussion.
Australian authorities intend to vaccinate the entire population against coronaviruses by October. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that the country, with 25 million inhabitants, has received a total of 150 million vaccine doses from the manufacturer Biontech / Pfizer, after a dose of 10 million.
“We will start Pfizer at the end of the month and then go to AstraZeneca in March,” said Australian government chief medical officer Brendan Murphy. More than 50 million doses of the vaccine are also expected to go to Australia from US manufacturer Novavax.
Morrison announced last summer that the population needed to be vaccinated as soon as there was an active ingredient against the virus. Vaccination should be “as compulsory as possible” for all people in the country. But later he returned again. However, the government had emphasized that compulsory vaccinations may be in place for those who wish to travel to Australia in the future.
Australia has so far come through the epidemic very mild due to extremely stringent measures. About 28,800 cases have been reported in connection with Kovid-19, nearly 900 people have died.
