Australians could need FIVE doses of the Covid vaccine to be considered fully vaccinated as the immunisation regulator could not rule out five doses of COVID-19 vaccine being mandated for Australians to be considered ‘up to date’ in their protection against the virus.
This should surprise no one, as the Federal government has ordered enough Covid vaccines to inject our entire population seven times over.
Appearing before a Senate estimates committee on Wednesday, Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) chairman Nigel Crawford said his organisation would continue to monitor data from countries already administering their fourth doses. Liberal senator Alex Antic asked Professor Crawford if he could assure Australians would not be required to get four or even five doses to be considered up to date. Professor Crawford could offer no such guarantee. ‘Countries like Israel have already recommended a fourth dose and we need to look at that international data and see the impact, and what the new variant vaccines look like,’ he said. Only last week Health Minister Greg Hunt announced three doses are now required to be considered up to date, with immunocompromised patients recommended four.
This single focus on mandatory Covid vaccination across all ages continues despite a report released on the 15th of February 2022 by the Australian Bureau of Statistics titled “Covid 19 Mortality in Australia” which showed the median age for those who died from COVID-19 was 83.7 years (81.2 years for males, 86.0 years for females). It is important to note that in 2019, the median age for all deaths in Australia was 78 for males and 84 for females. This data, coupled with the co-morbidity status of those that passed away “WITH” Covid as well as the recent “confession” from State Chief Health Officers about how Covid deaths were recorded in hospitals highlights the need for a Royal Commission into Australia’s handling of the Covid pandemic across all areas including media, government, “Experts” and the role the United Nations, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum influenced the management of the pandemic in Australia.
