CORONAVIRUS — CARERS — MANDATORY VACCINATION

1079. Hon SOPHIA MOERMOND to the minister representing the Minister for Health:

There are many people who care for a loved one who receive a carer's pension.

(1) Will these people be required to be vaccinated or show proof of vaccination to continue receiving their carer's pension?

(2) If not, could an exemption arrangement be agreed upon for such people?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(2) Carer payments are a matter for the commonwealth government.
