Victoria plans to deliver 300,000 coronavirus vaccines by mid-May

April 9, 2021 by med1clinic0

The Victorian government has set a goal of administering 300,000 vaccines by May 16, and so far, it says things are on track.

The state government has even offered to expand its vaccination program and help administer jabs to people the federal government is currently responsible for vaccinating.

The Commonwealth is responsible for sourcing vaccine doses and distributing them to the states and territories.

Then, the state and federal governments are responsible for different cohorts under different phases of the roll-out.

In Victoria, the state government is responsible for administering vaccines to workers in critical industries like health and emergency services, as well as public-sector aged care.

Hotel quarantine and port workers are also the responsibility of the state government.

Under phase 1B of the rollout, the Victorian government has also been allocated vulnerable groups such as people experiencing homelessness and public housing tenants, Health Minister Martin Foley said.

The Federal government is responsible for providing the vaccine to residents and workers in private-sector aged care and disability care.

Last week, Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud criticised the states for being slow to deliver vaccines, and said they “just need to pull their finger out”.

“The fact is they’ve left these on the rack when they could’ve put them into people’s arms,” Mr Littleproud told Nine’s Today show.

But Victoria’s Acting Premier James Merlino said the state had met or exceeded every state vaccination target set by the Commonwealth.

The Victorian government says the state is on track to deliver a total of 300,000 vaccine doses by May 16.

That total will include family and household members of hotel quarantine workers under phase 1B of the rollout.

The state says it is expanding its vaccine hubs and services in order to meet that goal.

Two new high-volume sites will be established at the Melbourne Showgrounds and at the Mercure convention centre in Ballarat.

Community vaccination centres are also getting established in Melbourne suburbs like Prahran, Lilydale, Broadmeadows, West Melbourne and Deer Park, the state government said.

Mobile vaccination vans will also partner with local health organisations and workplaces across the state.
