Andrews stated he might not state one method or another whether COVID-19 vaccinations would be mandated for kids under the age of 11. Basically, we do not

have public health guidance on those problems yet, so I can’t state one method or the

other, he stated throughout an interview on Tuesday. I would simply advise you that we have no-jab-no-play in actually hundreds and numerous early youth settings best throughout our state. That’s not brand-new. It’s not brand-new at all.

However we do not even understand when the pediatric vaccines are coming

. We do not understand who’s going to be qualified, [and in] what situations they’ll be eligible.

that makes it harder for kids to participate in school, he said. Meanwhile, the due date is approaching for authorised employees throughout Victoria to be totally vaccinated. In order to keep attending their work environments, they need to reveal evidence of a 2nd dosage, unless they have
