Groote vacccine rollout postponed

Notice text: 

The proposed COVID-19 vaccine rollout for Groote Eylandt on 27 April 2021 is being rescheduled due to changes in the National COVID-19 vaccine rollout. The COVID-19 vaccine rollout was planned to start between 27-30 April in Angurugu, Umbakumba and Alyangula. Milyakburra was scheduled for the following week. The NT Government is currently working closely with the Australian Government around the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine for Northern Territory, and this includes the Groote and Bickerton communities. Once the new schedule for the Groote Eylandt and Bickerton Island vaccinations are available, the NT Government will share these with the whole community. The Northern Territory Government will also continue to work closely with GEMCO on the planned joint vaccine rollout from Alyangula.
