There is reasonable cash on offer for GPs to join the national COVID-19 vaccination program, even if it is no “financial windfall”, the AMA says.

Applications are now open for GP practices to join phase 1B of the rollout. It will cover six million people receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is yet to be approved by the TGA.
