Riverland Flood Response

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (15:04): Supplementary: what proactive measures have been taken to ensure that those involved in the rescue and relief operations, who will be outside for more than four hours each day, will be vaccinated for Japanese encephalitis in time to undertake this rescue and recovery operation?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:05): I thank the honourable member for her question. The vaccination against Japanese encephalitis is something that we have been promoting now for some weeks, as members may recall. I have spoken about that in this place previously. I am advised that promotion of the opportunities for vaccination is continuing.
