Medical professionals have pushed back on the Queensland Premier’s comments suggesting children’s lives will be at risk when the country reopens at 80 per cent double-vaccinated.

Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer Professor Alison McMillan confirmed to Ray Hadley there is no vaccine licensed in any country for children under 12.

“Let me just state the facts as they are.

“ATAGI … say based on their evidence, there’s no need for under 12s to be vaccinated.

“The expertise of the Doherty Institute, so independent of government, or me, or anybody else, is saying the same.

“Children are contracting COVID … but the hospitalisation rate is very low, and the ICU rate is tiny.”
