Public hearing 12: The experiences of people with disability, in the context of the Australian Government’s approach to the COVID 19 vaccine rollout

The Royal Commission will hold a public hearing in Sydney. The hearing will be closed to the public but will be live-streamed on the Royal Commission website.

On Monday 17 May 2021, starting at 10am (AEST), the Royal Commission will hold a hearing to examine the approach of the Australian Government and its agencies to the vaccination of people with disability and disability support workers. The hearing will focus in particular on the vaccination program, noting the reports of extremely low rates of vaccination for people with disability and disability support workforce, and the lack of information about the implementation of the rollout.

Anyone who believes they have a direct and substantial interest in the subject of this additional day of hearing, as outlined in Practice Guideline 6, are able to make an application for leave to appear by 5.00pm Friday 14 May 2020.
