Premier Daniel Andrews is pushing for full vaccination to be redefined and says he hopes National Cabinet adopts three jabs as the new country-wide standard.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews will push for National Cabinet and Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) to declare full vaccination to be redefined as three doses of the coronavirus jab.

“International evidence, our own experience, reviews of experts and hopefully the confirmation of both ATAGI and National Cabinet today will mean that everyone knows and understands that this is a three-dose project,” Mr Andrews told reporters on Thursday.

FO DH 🖕 Sorry, you cannot redefine “full vaccination” on a symptom prevention drug drug that has failed all past human trials. Also, any person of government with shares in phizer or biotech should immediately be stood down and dismissed! He needs to go enough with this garbage he sucked everyone in the first time only to be told the vaccines don’t work. Leave it up to the people

The real dangerous virus. DanielAndrewsMP like if you not agree DanielAndrewsMP hahahahaha

😅🤣😂🤣😅 That's it Cheers 🍻 Good. Daniel Andrews is following WHO and other top health bodies recommendations. This Communist idiot will push for three, then four, then five. His CCP mates caused all this s**t for the World, and he, along with Xi, should be sent on a one-way space voyage. Is this the only Problem he has in his country? No inflation, No young psychological Problem because of self-made Pandemic, No-obesity Problem , No- Nothing?

Daniel Andrews needs to release details of shares and bonuses etc received from pharmaceuticals and affiliates. We know how pharmaceuticals like to bribe and reward governments for good behaviour. Let’s hope National Cabinet also approves the new redefined definition for all State and Federal leaders. Three fuckups and you immediately resign.

Aviation industry calls on governments to scrap testing, quarantine for travellersThe International Air Transport Association (IATA) has declared it is time to scrap quarantine and testing for fully vaccinated travellers as the world transitions through the next stage of the coronavirus pandemic.

Smart thinking Andrews, so you can put Victoria in lockdown until say 80% triple vax. Absolute dictator. Excellent, bring it on 👍 Let’s just destroy Australia’s tourism industry for no real health benefit. People will never be “fully vaccinated”. Jog on. That narrative is dead

‘Do not consent’: Wild $25 anti-vax letterAn anti-vax group is selling “legal” letters that experts say carry no more weight than a note scrawled on a piece of paper to parents concerned about their children being vaccinated. The letters are legally worthless and worried parents are being treated like cash cows with people happy to take their money over fear, uncertainty and doubt. It's a business model, follow the money. Another level up of stupidity. Sad and angry at everything anti vaxxers. By all means report the news, but to then publish the letter, enabling the nut bags in our community to copy or reproduce the letter is encouraging this behaviours. That is appalling journalism.

Mr Andrews said the vaccination program was “not a two-dose thing”, and added international and local evidence showed that a booster shot diminished serious illness and hospitalisation from COVID infection. “International evidence, our own experience, reviews of experts and hopefully the confirmation of both ATAGI and National Cabinet today will mean that everyone knows and understands that this is a three-dose project,” Mr Andrews told reporters on Thursday.

Three doses is critically important to that.” Mr Andrews said he “certainly hopes” National Cabinet would make the move, arguing “everyone can see” three-doses for full vaccination is the obvious next step. “I think this is where we’re heading, I think everyone can see that and understand that,” he said. “Whether it’s the international evidence, our own evidence, those statistics that are published today and in relation to those who are passing away.” He urged Victorians to roll up their sleeve for the booster as more than 1000 people are currently receiving hospital care for COVID-related illnesses in the state. We thank everyone who got vaccinated and tested yesterday. Our thoughts are with those in hospital, and the families of people who have lost their lives. More data soon:
