Everyone is talking about granting vaccine exemptions in Australia. As a General Practitioner, I get asked this question often, so in today’s episode I clear up some common misbeliefs and talk you through the official criteria for a vaccine exemption.
Vaccine exemptions are uncommon and are only given after much careful consideration by the patient’s medical team. All the information within this video has been taken from the Australian Government Department of Health and the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) and is current as of January 7th 2022. Please be sure to familiarise yourself with the references for any new changes to the criteria.

With an increasing number of confirmed cases of the novel virus at present in Australia, measures are being taken to help stop the propagation of the virus.
In today’s episode of Dr Nora I talk to you about my battle of finding protective measures to protect myself and my patients.
WHAT IS THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS?
Wuhan is a city in China where the virus originated from. It is not fully understood how the virus is transmitted but it is believe that it originated in a live seafood market and has so far affected many people in China and currently has a mortality rate of 2%. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
The virus causes symptoms pneumonia, including, fever, cough, shortness of breath and feeling unwell and tired. It is believed that there is an incubation period of around 14 days which means that someone may not know they have the virus immediately.
WHO IS AT RISK?
Those who have travelled to Wuhan or those who have close contacts with someone who has recently travelled or has a confirmed case.
HOW DO I PROTECT MYSELF?
Usual hygiene measures are crucial such as regular hand washing. It has currently not been recommended for the general public to use a mask outside of the health care setting.
I THINK I HAVE CORONAVIRUS WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If you have a suspicion you may be affected as perhaps you’ve recently travelled from there or know a close contact. You should maintain isolation and seek medical help. It is imperative that before you go to a doctor or the ED you must call ahead so that protective measures may be taken. You will need to be in isolation to protect others around you and hence stop the propagation of this virus.
