The NSW Premier says an investigation is underway into how more than 280 Young Liberal members received the Pfizer jab, despite being under 40 years old and not eligible.
“These vaccinations happened by mistake,” says Gladys Berejiklian. “We thought we were injecting them with human growth hormone, but it turns out it was the Covid vaccine.”
The Premier says it’s “not a big deal” that Young Liberal members aged between 16 and 31 years old got the Pfizer jab, when millions of eligible over 40’s haven’t.
It follows more than 160 elite private school students also receiving the Pfizer vaccine, despite not being eligible.
“To be honest, we’re happy our future leaders are now protected from Covid,” Ms Berejiklian told reporters.
“But that’s enough about that. Has anyone got any decent questions to ask?”
