Dr Michael Clements, Rural Chair of RACGP, talking about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander vaccination rates a critical risk as holiday season approaches. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) says Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities are at increased risk as Australia opens up, due to dangerously lagging COVID-19 vaccination rates. As the holiday season approaches and people start moving around the country and mingling more, vaccine coverage among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities continues to lag behind non-Indigenous populations.
