“The condition is you must be double vaccinated to come to Australia,” he said.
“That’s the rule. Everyone is expected to abide by it…”
Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews said unvaccinated travellers would still need to apply for a travel exemption to come to Australia and have to undergo hotel quarantine if they were granted permission to enter the country…
The expert panel on vaccines, ATAGI, has flagged though that it is considering whether to still use the term “fully vaccinated” or instead move to “up to date with vaccinations” like is used with childhood vaccines.
If the definition is changed, it could mean that booster shots are included when considering if someone is “up to date” or not.
Mr Morrison made it clear, with a reference to the recent Novak Djokovic saga, that even if people had the correct visa to enter Australia, if they were not fully vaccinated — or had an exemption — they would not be allowed to enter.
We know the ‘fully vaccinated’ spread the mostly harmless virus no less than the non-‘vaccinated.’ The government and its ‘expert’ panel are maintaining the lie that the latter are dangerous for one reason only: to protect themselves from ever admitting or acknowledging that their vaxxer mania was unnecessary, didn’t work, cannot be maintained and was a costly, dishonest sham. It doesn’t matter what the issue is – emissions, religious liberty, mandates or state border lock-outs – Scott Morrison always comes down on the side of the lumpen media-left orthodoxy.
