Mandatory Vaccinations

I appreciate the time you’ve taken to seek my views on this matter.

I understand and acknowledge there are a range of views in our community about immunisation and the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

I have heard from and listened to people who are uncertain, hesitant or opposed.

Throughout the global pandemic and public health crisis I have been guided by the advice of the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

With respect to the legality of mandatory vaccinations for certain industries, it is important to respect the independence of the Fair Work Ombudsman.

Thank you again for sharing your concerns.
