See thread. #Typhoid vaccination #Manus
1. Australia's recommendations re #Typhoid: PNG is known as a region with a high incidence of typhoid.
Aus govt recommends typhoid revaccination
3 years after a 3-dose course, or 5 years after a 4-dose course.
2. Why are refugees & asylum seekers who #Australia forcibly sent to #Manus becoming infected with #Typhoid?
Australia knows that in PNG 'Typhoid fever has moderate to high incidence, and high mortality'.
Are refugees & asylum seekers revaccinated as recommended by Australia?
3. Whether men were vaccinated with 2x3 yearly doses or 1x5 yearly dose, #typhoid revaccination fell due during #PIH tenure.
Did PIH revaccinate the men in #Manus camps?
PIH received $21.5m over 10 months to provide healthcare in the #Manus camp small clinic.
PIH Negligence?
4. Please #auspol media, ask the question.
Did #PIH revaccinate the men in the #Manus refugee camps against #typhoid during the last 12 months?
Friends, please ask politicians to follow up with Home Affairs regarding PIH contract & revaccination.
5. #PIH has been responsible for #Manus refugee & asylum seeker health care, including preventative health care measures, since the new camps were opened at the end of 2017.
Did PIH fulfil their contractual obligations & revaccinate the men against #typhoid when vaccinations due?
unroll please @threadreaderapp
6. #Manus #Typhoid #Vaccination update.
I have seen evidence that on 28/10/13 men given the typhoid vaccination form that must be repeated every 2 years. So revaccination was due on 28/10/15, 28/10/17 & next on 28/10/19.
Let's assume vaccinations were done when due on 28/10/15.
7. Someone said the #Manus men were offered #typhoid vaccination in Oct 17. I haven't heard of anyone being vaccinated then.
It would not be a surprised none or only a few were done by date 28/10/17. The men were under threat of forced removal from Lombrum camp on 31/10/17.
8. If most or all men were not revaccinated by #IHMS or #PIH by the due date of 28/10/17, then this would explain why there is now an outbreak of #typhoid amongst the #Manus refugees & asylum seekers - especially given their living conditions.
Correction: It would not be surprising if none or only a few were done by due date 28/10/17. The men were under threat of forced removal from the Lombrum camp (#Manus) on 31/10/17.
