Australia’s rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine begins

22 February 2021

Today marks the beginning of Australia’s rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. Nurses and aged care residents have started receiving their vaccinations along with other frontline workers and those at high-risk. We look forward to better protection for workers, safer workplaces and gradual return to our everyday lives as the vaccination gets taken up.

As professional leaders in this area, nurses and midwives can find the NMBA’s position statement on vaccination here.
