From tomorrow, NDIS participants aged 16 and over and carers aged 16 and over are eligible to receive the coronavirus jab.
“National Cabinet has refined the national vaccination rollout plan to maximise opportunities for Australians to be vaccinated over the second half of the year, in line with increased supply,” Ms Reynolds said in a statement.
She labelled the move as “a very important step”.
As of June 6, more than 40,000 NDIS participants received at least one dose of the vaccine. This is an increase of 16 per cent, or about 9200 participants since 25 May this year.
