Being vaccinated does not open the Australian Borders.
Allowing Private Vaccination at this stage of the Pandemic would be Suicide for any Government world wide allowing that to happen which is exactly what the WHO is referring to.

Wow. Let me pay because I want to jump the queue to travel... either for business or to see family or just because I can. This just smacks of entitlement. No Tracie, the roll-out schedule is based on age, vulnerability and the necessity for frontline workers first. Put your purse away sit down and wait your turn.

Or you've drunk too much Kool-aid.

I doubt whether one will be a able to buy a vaccination.
However, if you have the right friends, or are a Liberal Party donor, you should be able to sail to the head of the line without any problems for the vaccine of your choice, free, I imagine.

Ah, no. Being vaccinated reduces the chance that you will get sick from the disease. It does not stop you from carrying it or at least there is insufficient evidence to say so. Until your destination has it close to eradicated, you won't be going anywhere except under the current exceptions. Otherwise you have a high risk of bringing it back to Australia.

Not sure how this discussion fell off the top viewed community discussion on the main page, considering the activities and posting over the last 72 hrs but just sharing the latest news that EU just officially commandeered/Shanghai-ed our vaccines supply as I suggested in my earlier post....
Edit oops I meant to say EU has given itself powers to commandeer our supply.

I doubt any vaccine manufacturers are selling to other than governments and governments are having trouble securing orders. Your chance of securing a private supply you could then import into Australia and then have administer would be zero. You would be better off getting a job in the hotel quarantine system. That you put you in front of the queue.
