Health Minister Greg Hunt has asked the government’s expert immunisation panel to review the time frame for COVID-19 booster shots, after the detection of the Omicron “variant of concern” in Australia…
Mr Hunt said Australian vaccine supplies were ready if [the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation] recommended a shorter booster time frame.
“We will, as ever, allow them (ATAGI) to act independently and continue to follow their advice,” Mr Hunt said.
“But we’re prepared with supplies. We are already one of the earliest nations in the world, after Israel, to have a whole-of-nation booster program.
“If they recommend changes, we will follow those changes…”
He also urged calm…
Given that the new “variant” was brought into Australia by the increasingly dirty “fully vaccinated” and that the four Botswana cases were also “fully vaccinated” – as were the initial cases in Israel – and that three “fully vaccinated” Wallabies have now tested positive in England, I can understand why smack addict vaxxers are begging for booster. Embarrassment.
