Heggie to address councils


CHIEF health officer Hugh Heggie will address recently elected local government members as the Territory continues its push to vaccinate all Territoria­ns.

Dr Heggie will address an elected member symposium organised by local government peak body LGANT on Tuesday, with dozens of newly elected or re-elected councillor­s from across the Territory, many from remote regional councils.

The health officer has been touring regional communitie­s to reinforce the importance of Covid-19 vaccinatio­ns.

He has used his extensive experience and knowledge of remote communitie­s to encourage residents to have the jab.

The government hopes 80 per cent of Territoria­ns will be vaccinated by November, but a recent report indicated that target may not be achieved until January.

The address will take place at the DoubleTree Hilton.
