We already have had updates from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation [ATAGI], and the Therapeutic Goods Administration and the Chief Medical Officer… That’s been an ongoing process.
Now with the additional advice overseas from the European Medicines Agency, which is their equivalent of our Therapeutic Goods Administration… we have asked the [ATAGI] here in Australia to review and provide advice.
That advice will go to the chief health and medical officers of Australia, the body chaired by Professor Paul Kelly, the Chief Medical Officer, and also at the same time the TGA or the Therapeutic Goods Administration is considering the latest advice from overseas.
That will come through to government and as the prime minister indicated this morning, that will be discussed at a health ministers meeting this evening and National Cabinet with all of the states and territories and their leaders and the prime minister tomorrow.
So, that’s the process that we’re taking.
