Decision to redirect Pfizer doses from rural NSW to Sydney schools meets criticism

A national organization representing local doctors has criticized the decision to redirect the Pfizer vaccine from a rural town in New South Wales to a high school student in Sydney.

The Rural Doctors Association of Australia has said it puts important medical services in these communities at risk.

RDAA President John Hall said it would be “totally rude” to redirect up to 40,000 vaccinations from the state to the city when there are healthcare workers in areas that have not yet been vaccinated.

Dr. Hall said there was volume frontline, geriatric care, and GP work in the region’s New South Wales where vaccines were not available.
