Only half of residents and a third of the staff have been vaccinated in the aged care facility with a positive case. Thinking of all the families who lost loved ones last year in aged care. The federal government has learned nothing from your loss. This is on them. Unforgivable.
Under Australian law, the Federal Govt is 100% responsible for vaccines, quarantine and aged care.18 months into this crisis, the vaccine “plan” is a debacle; they refuse to build safe quarantine facilities; and nearly all deaths have occurred in aged care https://t.co/qNkXDRioC0
The one part of the vaccination rollout directly controlled by the Morrison government, to residential aged and disability care facilities, just had its worst week. Over 160,000 people are still to receive their first dose in a program that was supposed to be finished in March. pic.twitter.com/hnEKwR735m
Fed govt has a tender for nursing homes to vaccinate aged care staff that doesn't close until end of JUNE. Another for vax of vulnerable groups, which closed 3 weeks ago, is still "being evaluated." What on Earth has the Coalition been doing? My report: https://t.co/HSs4gt8nsp
Vic Gov saying they have no visibility on vaccine roll out in private aged care. Serious questions need to be asked about the bespoke private contractor program insisted on by the Fed Gov. Especially since it deliberately bypassed long standing national vaccine arrangements.
