Lieutenant General John Frewen – Operation COVID Shield – 4th August 2021 | 7NEWS

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Lieutenant General John Frewen – Operation COVID Shield – 4th August 2021 | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

Operation COVID Shield leader Lieutenant General John Frewen has not ruled-out case incentives to encourage people to get their coronavirus vaccines.

“Right now, I have said incentives is something we will consider, but right now Australians, in the last 7 days, we have had 1.2 million doses going into people’s arms. Demand is still exceeding supply right now so the time for incentives is maybe later when we’re getting into some of the more hesitant sort of groups. So I am really encouraged by the rate of Australians getting vaccinated.

“We will look at all positive alternatives. There is cash, there is the ideas of lotteries, all these things are being discussed. What is resonating with people right now really is being able to get back to the sort of lifestyle we used to enjoy, international travel, not having to do quarantine, not having to go into lockdown, and those sort of things. Getting vaccinated is the right thing to do for individuals and for the nation” – Lieutenant General John Frewen – Operation COVID Shield.
