Federal government did not support NSW decision to redirect vaccines: PM

The NSW government’s decision to redirect COVID-19 vaccines from the Hunter and Central Coast regions to hotspots in Sydney did not receive support from the federal government, says Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Residents, including frontline healthcare workers, were informed that their appointments to receive the vaccine had been canceled over the weekend to prioritize residents in Greater Sydney currently undergoing stringent lockdown measures.

Mr. Morrison said the Commonwealth had not taken jabs away from the regions as the vaccination program “must work everywhere”.

“The federal government did not support the initiative to redirect doses away from the Central Coast to Greater Sydney,” he said.

“The Commonwealth government has maintained the supply of doses to GPs on the Central Coast – that is coming directly from Operation COVID Shield.

“The state government has decided to redirect doses from the state clinics and state hubs on the Central Coast and put it in another part of the state.

“That is their decision, that is their process for making those calls, that is up to them, but the Commonwealth government has not taken one dose from the Central Coast to put it into other parts of the country because the national vaccination program must work everywhere.”
