The Greens have called upon the Prime Minister to boot Craig Kelly from his role chairing a parliamentary committee, following weeks of disinformation intended to undermine the medical response to coronavirus.
The Greens say that decades of decline in Australian manufacturing puts the nation at risk of having fewer options when it comes to Covid-19 vaccines, and have called for a publicly-owned vaccine manufacturer.
Both Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are based on new technology (mRNA), and while CSL has capacity to manufacture the protein based vaccines it doesn’t at this time have the ability to produce mRNA.
Every Australian should have equal access to good healthcare. Where you live, or how much money you earn, shouldn’t affect the care you receive when you are sick. The Greens are working hard to protect Medicare from harsh government cuts, are champions of Denticare, and are leading calls for proper investment in mental health services, and for meaningful efforts to close the gap in health and life expectancy faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
