A drastic shortage in COVID-19 vaccine supplies nationwide is behind the Commonwealth government’s reluctance to address vaccine hesitancy amongst Australians, says former Labor senator Stephen Conroy. “It continues to be extraordinary that the government has been so slow, and so poor, in its advertising campaign,” he told Sky News. “A cynic in me says the real reason they haven’t wanted to encourage people to vaccinate because there’s not enough vaccines. “This is a government that failed its job last year, and now the country is going to be in repetitive lockdowns because it didn’t do its job last year, it was utterly incompetent, promising that we’re front of the queue and then, of course, the famous it’s not a race.” Mr Conroy urged the government to lead the “campaign” to protect children from the virus. “I think we have to at least include children between 12 and 18 in the calculations that we’re doing because they are contracting it,” he continued. “The government needs to be leading this campaign in the same way that governments have led the campaign in other jurisdictions.”
