The Herald-Sun published an article today under the headline, “Andrews government won’t rule out jab mandates for kids”.
According to the article, “The Victorian government has left the door open to imposing vaccine mandates on kids aged from five to 11, despite backflipping on bans that would have stopped older children attending their own school graduations.
Authorities also appeared to wind back the mandate after thousands of unvaccinated kids were locked out of community sport at the weekend.”
PV Chief Executive Officer Gail McHardy is quoted in the article.
Gail’s comments, as supplied to the Herald-Sun, were: “Parents Victoria recommends parents and carers communicate directly with their school if they are unclear on any of arrangements if their unvaxxed 12- 15 year old child has any upcoming external school activities. At this point, PV’s understanding is that if it is a school arranged event, part of the educational program and with a supervising teacher the student will be permitted to attend. Covid school life is evolving and extremely important that families read and understand school communications at all times and if in doubt, ask!”
