The disgraceful hypocrisy of the TGA

The TGA has approved a variety of vaccines including ONE DOSE of J&J all for the purposes of TRAVEL into Australia. Therefore, international arrivals will be considered FULLY VACCINATED and do not have to quarantine with a vaccine the TGA has not included in their own National Vaccination Program WITHIN AUSTRALIA.

Whilst Australians are forced to get one of 3 and are not considered fully vaccinated unless it’s two doses. Can you see the hypocrisy?

  1. Not an independent body of course funded by the alleged big pharma pirates. Just a rubber stamper. The entire Australian government and USA government et Al vaccination policies are totally corrupted with massive systematic and widespread conflicts of interest. Who is going to stop these criminal bastards? They better do it soon.

  2. Some information see this of course is only the tip of the poisoned needle. See other info on imop website for more atrocious conflicts of interest. There is so much more info from independent researchers such as Dr Judy wilyman and Elizabeth Hart and many more investigative journalists nothing of course from the corrupted and deeply conflicted mainstream media.
    Why have they never been stopped? Someone start doing it now before our country is in ashes.

    1. Apologies second last sentence should read tga funded by industry !

      As we have said previously, you don’t employ a gang of armed robbers to be security guards for financial institutions…………
