NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has called for the state to continue receiving its “fair share” of COVID-19 vaccines after the Victorian Government was allocated extra doses.
Victoria has been allocated extra vaccine doses in order to combat the latest outbreak – which has seen 11 new cases recorded over the last 24 hours.
Speaking to the media on Monday, Ms Berejiklian said she appreciates the “pain and angst” being felt by Victorians at the moment but maintained New South Wales should get its fair share of vaccines.
“I think, as the premier of New South Wales, the PM would expect me to say New South Wales should get its fair share during the course of the pandemic,” she said.
“We’re trying to the do the heavy lifting with bringing back 3,000 Aussies home every single week, we haven’t stopped.
“I can’t tell you the stress that puts on our system to keep everyone safe.
“So I think the PM would be disappointed if I didn’t speak up on behalf of my state.”
