Disagree, it a very poor performer, means some of the supposedly vaccinated arrivals will have very low level protection.
Think we should stick with the vaccines that have proven effective against Delta, and Sinovac is not one of those. Countries who vaccinated their medical workers with Sinovac have had to give early Mrna boosters, because too many who were vaccinated with SInovac were dying. or ending up in ICU.
The concession is likely being made for the international student market from China, but better would be to require them to get a booster of another better vaccine on arrival (user pays of course and 14 days iso for them til it kicks in)
This is where mixed messaging starts to come home to roost Victoria is clear it only follows health advice. The Cth and NSW have said they follow a range of advice - advice that may not necessarily be in the best health interests of people. So I wonder whether the TGA's approval is just on economic grounds, or whether it really is valid in terms of protecting health?
