The Federal Government is prepared to give every Australian free access to the COVID-19 vaccine if it’s successfully developed by Oxford University scientists as a part of the government’s new COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment Strategy.
“The Oxford vaccine is one of the most advanced and promising in the world, and under this deal we have secured early access for every Australian,” said Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
“If this vaccine proves successful, we will manufacture and supply vaccines straight away under our own steam and make it free for 25 million Australians.” Said Mr Morrison.
The first vaccines could be available as early as the end of this year or early next, and if successful.
This is another reason making WA a safe place to live. Our economy is remaining relatively steadfast in the face of pandemic and the multiple government grants on offer are ensuring the property industry is remaining highly active and continuing to bolster the economy.
