Australian Vaccination Network (AVN)
The AVN came about primarily due to a demand for adequate information on vaccination, to address concerns regarding discrimination and to uphold the right of freedom of choice on this issue. We aim to provide a centre of information for the purposes of assisting people to make informed choices and health professionals to better advise their clients. We recognise that there are differences of opinion between health professionals with respect to the relative merits of vaccination and therefore consider that any regulation in this area is not in the public interest. Our aim is to remove any such regulation, as well as any restrictive or discriminatory practices relating to this issue, and to ensure that no further regulations or restrictions are applied. The AVN will lobby in the appropriate areas for the preservation of the individuals right to choose.
