Federal Minister for Indigenous Australians Ken Wyatt, who visited Newman last week, said the successful leadership shown by local elders and Aboriginal organisations has been brought to the fore during the vaccine roll-out.

“It’s been a great outcome and it’s a beautiful facility that caters for the health needs of people here in the region, particularly the Martu people.

“Here at PAMS they have vaccines, they have a mobile team, they are making sure that people are vaccinated and we’ve got 147 Aboriginal community controlled health organisations across the country rolling out the vaccines.

“They’re doing a tremendous job in having people vaccinated and the way in which they are doing it people (are) coming forward and they’re not afraid to have a vaccines because they want to be protected.”
