Morrison admitted on Thursday he didn’t order enough vaccines last year when they were distributed internationally – putting the lives of Australians at risk.   

‘I’m sorry that we haven’t been able to achieve the marks that we had hoped for at the beginning of this year. Of course I am.

‘But what’s more important is that we’re totally focused on ensuring that we’ve been turning this around,’ he said.

Australia has only jabbed 14.98 per cent of over 15s, one of the lowest rates in the OECD group of 38 rich nations.

With 14 million Australians in three states locked down due to outbreaks, Mr Morrison said he was sorry for not getting more jabs into arms.

The Minister for Health has also been criticised for the delayed vaccine rollout.
