    With limitations on the use of AstraZeneca ‘s vaccine in Australia and the bulk of the nation’s Pfizer orders not set to arrive until late in the year, timelines have blown out for the country’s vaccination campaign.

    States have been pushing for mass vaccination hubs to help deliver doses quickly and the Government’s signaled a new openness to the idea.

    They’ve been a success in countries like the US, but doctors aren’t sure they’ll help yet as there are not enough vaccines in the country.
