15 Nov Dentists to be among first COVID vaccine recipients in Australia
Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt confirmed that the first tranche of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is on track to be released in Australia in the first half of 2021.
Among the first recipients of the vaccine, which will only reach about twenty per cent of the Australian population will include the elderly, aged care workers, and frontline workers including dentists, doctors, nurses and pharmacists.
This development is a direct result of the ADA working closely with Minister Hunt’s office and advocating on behalf of Australia’s dentists to ensure that they and the entire dental team are afforded the protection the vaccine provides.
