Additional emails from Pfizer released under FOI show when the country needed leadership, Scott Morrison was too slow to act.
Scott Morrison continues to lie to Australians and pretend ‘every effort’ was made to secure vaccine supplies. Australians know this wasn’t true.
You can’t trust the Prime Minister to be honest with Australians about the vaccine rollout.
While countries such as the UK and the US were busy signing vaccine supply deals with Pfizer in July 2020, the Morrison Government ignored Pfizer’s ‘enthusiastic’ request for urgent meetings.
Australians paid a high price for Scott Morrison’s rollout failures.
Millions of Australians languished in lockdown, kids weren’t able to go to school and workers weren’t able to go to work because Scott Morrison’s Government took a deliberate ‘wait and see’ approach to vaccine deals.
Australia was never at the ‘front of the queue’. Our vaccine supply deals with Pfizer weren’t signed until Christmas Eve last year.
