Local doctors will be brought in for phase 1b of the rollout, which targets older people and those with certain underlying conditions, from March 22. Overall, more than 4500 accredited general practices will participate in phase 1b of Australia's Covid-19 vaccine rollout, which Hunt says is one of the greatest logistic challenges in the nation's history. To complement the phase 1b rollout, GP-led Respiratory Clinics and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services will also help to deliver vaccines. Nationally, there will be more than 130 Respiratory Clinics and more than 300 Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service sites supporting the rollout.
