Rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine

The Marshall Liberal Government took decisive action to protect the people of South Australia and ensure our economy was supported through the challenges COVID-19 has presented.

Now, we are focused on the next part of our plan to keep South Australians safe – rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is South Australia’s biggest ever peacetime operation with the first phase helping to protect South Australia’s most vulnerable and at risk, including medi-hotel workers, frontline health workers and those living or working in aged and disability care.

Over the coming days, weeks and months we will continue to work with the Federal Government to ramp up the vaccine rollout across metropolitan and regional areas to ensure every South Australian who wants to get vaccinated does.

Work with us to keep SA safe by rolling up when it’s your turn to get vaccinated
