“There is going to be a vaccinated economy, and you get to participate in that if you are vaccinated,” Mr Andrews said.
“We’re going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be,” Mr Andrews said.
The government says it is in the process of developing an industry pilot program to trial the viability of a vaccine economy, where more events, facilities and services are open to people who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
“The economy, as best it can, will operate as close to normal as possible to people who have had two doses,” Mr Andrews said.
No further details about the pilot program have as yet been revealed.
