    Australia’s vaccine rollout and quarantine planning have been criticised by the Leader of the Opposition Anthony Albanese who said the Prime Minister had ‘failed to plan.’

    “Scott Morrison’s failure to plan has been a plan to fail. This new deal is just the old deal that has never been delivered. We’ve known from the very beginning that the key to removing restrictions and going back to our way of life is the rollout of the vaccine. But the truth is that Scott Morrison has failed to roll out the vaccine and has also failed to put in place national quarantine facilities. They’ve been the two big jobs that he’s had this year. And it’s extraordinary that 18 months into the pandemic he’s decided that we’re at stage one. For goodness sake. If we had got this right, we would have been in a position that other countries find themselves in today, able to move forward. In the UK, over 50s have been told that they’ll be offered their booster shot, their third vaccine, from October. And here we are in Australia, at the bottom of the OECD, something like six per cent of Australians being fully vaccinated. In spite of that, Australians still continue to do magnificent work, looking after each other. And the number of people who’ve come forward for testing is indeed a great tribute to the sense of solidarity and unity that is out there and the determination that Australians have to do the right thing. What they need is a government that is prepared to do the right thing. And the key issue here is that of supply. The truth is that so many Australians are still trying to get vaccinated but are unable to because of supply issues. And we know that that’s the case because the state governments, who are all doing magnificent work, have been telling us that that’s the cases” – Anthony Albanese – Leader of the Federal Opposition.
