The Australian government isn’t pinching any pennies when it comes to subverting anti-vaccine causes. In fact, they are reportedly now spending $5.5 million dollars to campaign against the anti-vaccine movement. A movement that’s already taken government hits, such as “no jab, no pay.” The country has also banned some individuals who have promoted anti-vaccine rhetoric and media.
The campaign, called “Get the Facts about Immunisation,” is a series of handouts and videos encouraging vaccination. The videos and handouts also feature parents who are grieving the losses of children.
Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Health Minister Greg Hunt explained “it is these areas of low coverage which pose risks to the community, especially to people who can’t be vaccinated, like newborns and those with medical reasons.” (Click to Site)
