NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian says the state government will look at “freedom” incentives rather than cash incentives for people who get the Covid-19 jab, rejecting federal Labor’s plan to have $300 paid to everyone who is fully vaccinated.
“Look, we’ve been looking at incentives for some time in the New South Wales government,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“We’re focusing on what we believe people want at this stage. They want peace of mind that they can move more freely, send their kids to school, work.
“Any incentives around those things we think are great motivators so we’re looking at those options.”
Ms Berejiklian said her government would “encourage people” to get vaccinated by providing them with additional freedoms, which she believes is “the best motivator of all.”
She said incentives would be “linked to our plan for what life looks like on August 29.”
