AUSTRALIA NEWS: Prisoners are among the first to receive the COVID vaccine in Australia

Prisoners and overweight people will be among the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine when the program is launched in Australia early next year.

They will join health workers and the elderly as the number of people who are at risk for the immune system is being investigated more than most.

Pregnant women will also be moved up the list.

Earlier today, Prime Minister Scott Morrison suggested that policies could begin sooner than expected.

The prime minister has told Ray Hadley of 2GB that he thinks the policies could start “earlier” than the planned March date.

However, March remains the first time officially scheduled yet.

The comments come after Health Minister Greg Hunt said last week that Australia was “ahead of schedule” in its five-step vaccine, the first vaccine to be approved by the end of January.

Health care providers and caregivers of the elderly and the elderly are expected to be the first to receive a jab with a full discharge which is expected to take about 12 months.

The UK began the mass release of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine earlier this week, which is also now approved in Canada.

However, British night officials issued a warning that those with a history of allergies should refrain from getting a gun after two NHS staff members protested after their vaccination.
