The head of the nation's COVID Taskforce has contradicted the Prime Minister over the merits of cash payments to encourage people to get a vaccine.

The Prime Minister has described Labor's proposal of a $300 payment as an insult, but his military appointee says there's merit in offering dollars for jabs.
