Official Australian Vaccine Information

If you have concerns about getting vaccinated, consult an accredited, practising physician (your doctor). But keep your mind open and listen to their advice carefully.

There is a great deal on contradictory information circulating about COVID-19 treatments and vaccines. While researching the topic is strongly suggested, the source of the information and the intent of the information source needs to be carefully considered. Some of the information being supplied via social media and on issue-motivated websites has been craftily manipulated to engrain doubt or it is blatantly false.

Certainly, some vaccines may present a level of risk. However, any opinion on risk needs to consider factual short-term and long-term effects, including the potential for death, caused by the disease across the whole community.
Maintaining Situational Awareness

The COVID-19 situation is constantly changing, and it is essential you stay up to date on the response to the pandemic.

To maintain accurate situational awareness, you must actively seek, consistently monitor, and cross-reference information from multiple sources. Situational awareness is simply knowing what is going on around you, but it needs to be planned, systematic and maintained. Without those key actions, it is very easy to lose your situational awareness.

However, it does not have to be obsessive or excessive. Vigilance is a good strategy, but hyper-vigilance can be harmful by causing you to become unnecessarily stressed and distressed.
Caution on Rumour & Fake News

Rumour, speculation, misinformation, disinformation (including conspiracy theories) will only generate unnecessary concern, fear and stress. These types of informational corruptions will detract from rational measures being taken, or that will be taken for your own protection and everybody else's.

Be keenly aware of your information sources, their knowledge (authoritative and informed as opposed to simply casual or uninformed opinion), and their intent in providing information.

Refer to the fact check links above or make your own investigations using a wide range of reputable sources.
How to Protect Yourself & Others

You should only follow instructions and directions given by official and competent agencies.

Comply fully with those instructions or directions. If unsure about an issue, seek further information or clarification from a competent source.
