Medicines Australia’s Statement on Anti-vax Protests
20 February 2021: Medicines Australia is aware of the anti-vaccinations protests held across the country today. We encourage Australians to be mindful of COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation that can lead to harmful and unsafe decisions.
Patient safety is our top priority at Medicines Australia, for our Members and the Government. Medicines Australia urges the community to remain secure in the rigorous and robust processes governing the approval and rollout of vaccination programs across the country, including the role of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) as regulator.
Medicines Australia also wants to reinforce the Government’s position that all COVID-19 vaccines rolled-out across our nation will be voluntary and free.
