The government has only suspended the vaccine in children under 5 and only in Western Australia.

Surely the entire country gets the vaccine from the same source. Or are they making separate vaccines for each state?

It makes me wonder why they have not suspended the vaccine for children nation wide.

Will we see a further increase in adverse reactions to this untested rushed vaccine?

"update"

Doctors told not to give flu vaccine to under-5s

Austraia's chief medical officer Jim Bishop says parents should not have their children vaccinated at the moment

"We've asked the TGA to be in touch with all of the states and we've spoken to chief health officers of all of the states," he said.

The government has just responded to suspend vaccinations of under 5's nationally whilst holding talks with the manufacturers. It is suspected that there is a faulty batch, they say that there have been no adverse reactions in older age groups.

Lets see how long that lasts.
