Vaccine related fraud and security risks 376.03 KB

This inquiry was established to to identify and address any vulnerabilities that had or potentially could emerge in relation to vaccine and vaccine related fraud and security and provide the Australian public with confidence in the integrity of the COVID-19 vaccination program.

In undertaking this inquiry, the committee considered concerns held, both within Australia and globally, regarding the security of COVID-19 vaccines themselves as well as the broader integrity of vaccination programs. Concerns raised during the inquiry included organised crime groups selling illicit or fake vaccines or undertaking fraud using peoples’ uncertainty or desire for vaccines as the ‘bait’, with additional concerns as to whether anti-vaccination (colloquially, ‘anti-vaxxer’) groups may seek to impact the rollout of a COVID-19 vaccination program.
