- Australia’s expert immunisation panel says it didn’t recommend jab mandates
- Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation grilled a hearing this week
- Panel was asked the vaccine mandates still necessary if population vaccinated
- Chair said how jabs were rolled out was up to the states’ public health orders
Australia’s expert immunisation panel has distanced itself from state-enforced Covid-19 vaccine mandates and says it never recommended them.
The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) insists no recommendation was made at any time to the states regarding mandatory vaccine rules, which have sparked widespread protests across the country.
The advisory body was grilled at a parliamentary committee hearing on Wednesday, where it was asked the controversial mandates are still necessary if 90 per cent of the population are double jabbed.
