Australia hot for COVID shots
COVID vaccines, news media laws, UK unemployment and the US economy are all in the spotlight in the Grafa week ahead.
The long-awaited rollout of a COVID-19 vaccine begins across Australia today, with 80,000 initial doses of the Pfizer jab to be given to frontline health and quarantine workers, as well as residents and staff at aged care and disability centres.
Last week’s approval of the AstraZeneca vaccine also clears the way for local manufacturing, with biotech company CSL expected to produce about 50 million doses at its Melbourne facility.
Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the Australian Government’s negotiations with Facebook following the tech giant’s gigantic dummy spit last week over paying for news content.
Showing Mark Zuckerberg who’s boss, the news media code could be passed by Parliament as early as Monday.
