Martin Foley: Authorities working to meet ‘extraordinary demand’ for vaccinations

Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley says authorities are working to meet the “extraordinary demand” for vaccinations after there were reportedly issues with bookings through the hotline system.

He said they are now “calibrating the system, having started so strongly”.

“The hotline now has 1,000 plus people working on it … every piece that I've got shows that increasingly those capacity issues are being dealt with,” Mr Foley said.

He said these issues might require those trying to book vaccines to be “a bit flexible”.

“But there is a window of space that the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation sets, and we want to make sure that having started so well … that we now calibrate our efforts so as to make sure that we have a sustained effort going forward.”
