Plan for vaccine rollout unveiled
Frontline health and aged care workers, quarantine staff and disability workers will be the first in line for any COVID-19 vaccine under National Cabinet’s rollout strategy.
Every vaccine dose will be recorded in a patient’s personal immunisation record to guard against theft and ensure people can be contacted in the event of future adverse outcomes.
Asked about potential for fraud, Dr Moy said any doctor who accepts a bribe to fast track a patient’s access risks deregistration and would be unable to continue to practice.
“That would be completely unethical, outside of professional standards as a doctor,” Dr Moy told News Corp.
There is as yet no plan for how the general population will get access to the vaccines.
