CORONAVIRUS — CARERS — MANDATORY
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?
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.
