The inequality of Australia’s Pandemic Response

Richard Denniss, El Gibbs, Brendon Adams

Australia’s vaccine rollout was supposed to prioritise vulnerable communities, including older Australians, Aboriginal communities and people with disabilities, but that turned out to be a false promise. In the next issue of The Monthly, Dr Richard Denniss shows how the government’s pandemic response has exacerbated inequality and failed so many Australians. Please join Australia Institute chief economist Richard Denniss, Brendon Adams, manager of Wilcannia River Radio and El Gibbs, disability advocate and writer, for a discussion about how Australia’s pandemic response left so many people behind.
