‘Concerning’ states might not ‘play ball’ when vaccine targets reached

Liberal MP Dave Sharma says it’s concerning that some states might still decide not to play ball even when vaccination targets are met.

Premier Mark McGowan said on Sunday he did not want to risk reopening Western Australia to Victoria and New South Wales once it hit 70 per cent vaccinations in the eligible population.

“We have heard some state premiers say even when those targets are met they might still decide not to play ball,” Mr Sharma told Sky News Australia.

“I don’t see why we need to be held back if other states are reneging on the agreement they made at National Cabinet.”
