People 60 years old and over living in the Barton electorate should expect a call soon from Labor MP Linda Burney.
Ms Burney says her electorate office has been inundated with phone calls and emails from people in her electorate complaining about the federal government's handling of the COVID pandemic.
Members of her team started calling constituents weeks ago, but due to a lull in parliamentary commitments, the Shadow Minister for Indigenous Australians will personally be picking up the phone to try and help locals.
"We are ringing people to check in on them and see if they are travelling okay and to see if they need anything," she said.
"The response to this so far has been very warm, particularly from people who live on their own."
Ms Burney said she would make inquiries for those she calls and get the information they need.
"People are confused about what the rules are and what type of support they can get and how to get it. So that's what I'll be trying to help with the phone calls I'll be making," she said.
"People are waking up to the inaction of the federal government on so many levels, particularly on the availability of vaccines.
"The people in my electorate are over the tricky language the government is using when they are held to account over their failures in vaccine supply and quarantine and a whole range of other things.
"People are so confused by the nonsense spoken by the PM at his press conferences, one day it is okay to get Astra Zeneca, one day it is not.
"I will be calling people in the same cohort as me, and that is an extra incentive to encourage people not to be afraid to get the vaccine and isolate, as tricky as that is.
"I'd also encourage people to give themselves an active task each day. That's what I do. I also am a big list maker. So it is little things like that I'll be talking with people about.
"It'll be a friendly chat, but I will try and get clear answers for people because that's what they want and they are not getting from the federal government."
