FOI reveals Morrison slow on vaccine

For those attempting to defend Scott Morrison’s vaccine rollout bungle, documents obtained under FOI reveal that Pfizer was keen to engage with the Australian federal government as early as July 2020, asking that “this meeting occur at the earliest opportunity.”

In that same month several nations including the US and the UK began announcing vaccine deals with Pfizer. It took until November for our government to announce an initial agreement with Pfizer to purchase 10 million doses to be delivered by mid-2021.
