Mr Morrison is managing Australia’s border with a blindfold during this pandemic. Asked at Senate Estimates about the collection of vaccination information, Prof. Brendan Murphy said that: “At the moment we are not collecting that information. Some of the states and territories are asking people as they are coming into hotel quarantine whether they’ve been vaccinated.” The startling admission shows that the Morrison Government’s complacency on the vaccine rollout is matched by their lack of interest to manage our borders. Outbreaks from quarantine are the biggest risk to our health and our economy. It’s bad enough there have been 21 leaks from quarantine. It’s bad enough that Mr Morrison refuses to take responsibility for building fit-for-purpose quarantine across Australia. Why can’t Scott Morrison just do his job? Australia needs a system to track which returning Aussies have been vaccinated or not, we also need to know which vaccines people have been vaccinated with. This is basic information that the Federal Government should be collecting – that it refuses to do so - is a disgrace. Just like the disastrous vaccination rollout in aged care and disability care, the Morrison Government can’t say how many returning Australians have been vaccinated. More than 35,000 Australians are still stranded overseas by the Morrison Government – Australians deserve so much better.
