Australian workers could receive the vaccine in the office by September, the head of Australia‘s Covid vaccination rollout says.
In a press conference on Tuesday, Lieutenant General John Frewen said GPs, qualified nurses, and pharmacists could administer the vaccines in the workplace.
Administration by medical students and paramedics is also on the table.
“Around September and October, when we have greater access to the vaccines, that’s when workplace vaccination can open up” Lieutenant Frewen told reporters.
“It takes burden off both the primary healthcare system and some of the state mechanisms.”
