The Commonwealth Department of Health will be holding a briefing regarding the Australian Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccine strategy for representatives of Australia’s multicultural media next week and I would like to invite you to take part in it.
The briefing will be run via videoconference (Webex), 12.30pm to 1.30pm, Tuesday 16 February.
Two senior departmental officials – Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Professor Michael Kidd, and the head of the Primary Care Response and chair of the Department’s CALD Communities COVID-19 Health Advisory Group, Dr Lucas De Toca – will lead the discussions.
Michael and Lucas will make a few introductory comments before taking questions from the media.
This briefing will be a good opportunity for you to receive up-to-date information about the COVID-19 pandemic, including the rollout of vaccines, from two officials who have played an important role in the Government’s response.
If you can let me know if you are able to participate in the briefing, that would be greatly appreciated.
