The federal government has been contemplating for some weeks now, enhancements to the compensation scheme in relation to the individuals who have had hostile reactions to the vaccine, Mr Speaker, and we’ve determined to make sure that that threshold is $1000, Mr Speaker.
Now, Mr Speaker, I don’t know why these reverse would assume that could be a dangerous concept. We’ve got been working a nationwide vaccine program that now has one of many highest charges of vaccination on this planet however, Mr Speaker, we additionally know that in any nationwide vaccine program, there are hostile reactions to vaccines and we put in place a scheme to supply confidence to the Australian individuals to allow them to go ahead and get these vaccines, Mr Speaker, and that is among the many explanation why below the nationwide vaccine program we’ve one of many highest vaccination charges on this planet.
If these reverse don’t assume we should always have a scheme for individuals who have had hostile response to the vaccine, in the event that they assume that’s some kind of pandering, Mr Speaker, to an anti-vaxxer motion, I disagree with them. We put this in place, Mr Speaker, to make sure that there was a correct scheme to offer confidence within the nationwide vaccine program. So what do these reverse do?
After we put it in place and we make sure that it’s honest and equitable with the identical tight restrictions concerning the proof of harm, Mr Speaker, and hurt, what do they do? They need to play politics with it like they’ve throughout the pandemic. I’m so happy we didn’t should depend on the opposition in the course of the pandemic, Mr Speaker as a result of he wouldn’t have had the outcomes.
