    Aged care workers say the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is lacking clarity and speed and is failing to ensure vaccines are available for them.

    With at least three cases linked to an aged care home, Health Minister Greg Hunt has asked the federal and state chief health officers to reconsider compulsory vaccination for all aged care workers.

    Lisa Fitzpatrick from the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation says the sector has been let down by the federal rollout, with workforces given “leftovers” despite being in priority vaccination groups.
