United Australia Party Senator Ralph Babet is spearheading a bill that aims to remove vaccine indemnity from manufacturers, shifting responsibility for any vaccine-related issues from the government to the pharmaceutical companies themselves.
Currently, if something goes wrong with a vaccine, the government foots the bill. Senator Babet argues that it’s common sense for the manufacturers to be accountable. The proposed bill would ensure that if pharmaceutical companies produce a vaccine that causes harm, they would be liable.
In a candid interview, Senator Babet stated that this legislation would reveal who in Parliament House prioritises the interests of the people over Big Pharma.
When asked about the possibility of the bill passing, he expressed optimism, emphasizing that the voting process would disclose “who genuinely cares for Australians’ welfare”.
