Question Without Notice No. 940 asked in the Legislative Council on 10 November 2021 by Hon Martin Aldridge

Minister responding: Hon R.H. Cook
Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on

CORONAVIRUS — VACCINATIONS

940. Hon MARTIN ALDRIDGE to the minister representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to WA's safe transition plan.

(1) When is it predicted that Western Australia will reach 80 per cent of the eligible population having received two doses of a COVID vaccine?

(2) What other interstate or international jurisdictions have achieved a rate of 90 per cent of the eligible population having received two doses of a COVID vaccine?

(3) How has the modelling or the transition plan factored in the increasing number of people who will require, but may not access, a booster dose in coming weeks and months?

(4) Given that from 1 November 2021 the Therapeutic Goods Administration has approved 13 rapid antigen tests for use in Australia, when will the state government review the prohibition on their use?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided by the Minister for Health.

I have been advised that further time is required to answer this question. The information will be provided to the honourable member by 18 November 2021.
