RMIT University Associate Professor Victor Gekara says the most effective way to roll out a coronavirus vaccine would be to have two hubs for the vaccine, with one in a city and the other rurally.
“The set up should be a hub in the central location, like Perth, and a regional distribution centre in a place like Broken Hill, and you’ve got the distribution channels close to that centre,” Mr Gekara told Sky News.
“It is absolutely essential that we’ve got distribution centres that are located very close to the end distribution and administration centres.”
Mr Gekara said communities had to be aware the vaccine is two doses and the the second jab was essential for the vaccine to be effective.
“The people themselves have to be aware they have to be receive the next dose for the entire vaccination process to be effective.”
