ACT to open vaccination appointments for age group 30-39 soon

The online registration for Canberrans aged between 30-39 years is now open

Canberrans aged between 30 and 39 are invited to register online  through MyDHR for their COVID-19 jab so they can be contacted when vaccine appointments open up “pretty soon”.

“If you’re in that 30-39-year-old age group, please go online and register, and we will be getting in contact with you pretty soon to let you know that appointments are becoming available,” ACT Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith said today.

“We know that vaccination is the way out of this pandemic, and we also know from the modeling that the Doherty Institute presented to National Cabinet last week that those younger age groups are really important in terms of reducing the transmission,” Ms Stephen-Smith said.

As National Cabinet continues to plan Australia’s emergence from the pandemic, Ms Stephen-Smith said the ACT would need to “have a conversation” about what the future would look like for the Territory, including how to navigate different restrictions or allowances for people who are vaccinated.

“We are on a pathway to having 70% of the adult population vaccinated but we’re still a little way from that,” she said.

“But I think it is really important that we start to have that conversation as a community in terms of the risk that we carry, in terms of what people can do if they’re vaccinated versus if they’re not vaccinated.”

She said while there will “certainly be conditions around international travel”, there may be further conditions in the Territory based on vaccination status.

“You can absolutely guarantee that there will be some businesses that will determine that they will allow people to do some things on the basis of a vaccination status and not other things.

“Particularly a human rights jurisdiction I think it’s really important for us to have a conversation about what that means for the freedoms of ACT residents but also how important it is to get vaccinated.”
