Minister hints at when international travel will return

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has hinted at when Australians are likely to see their next international holiday.

Mr Hunt was at the University of Queensland on Friday to announce that its coronavirus vaccine is on course to be rolled out by July next year, as the government aims to administer a vaccine to all those who wish to get it by the end of 2021.

He said if the vaccination strategy went as planned, Australians would be “very close to” widespread international travel by the end of next year.

Mr Hunt said that all of Australia’s contracted vaccinations were proving to be successful so far.

“[That] is beyond our wildest dreams,” he told reporters.

He said if there was a surplus of vaccines, the remainder would be used for “supporting our neighbours”.

The government has signed a deal to secure 51 million doses of the University of Queensland vaccine and will be produced in Melbourne’s CSL plant if approved.

More to come.
