The Review team, led by Professor Bryant Stokes will prepare a report for
consideration by the Minister for Health.

The Review will:

• Analyse the systems in place for reporting vaccine side effects in WA and
nationally and the protocols in place to determine timing to alert the public
and health professionals of heightened risks;

• Assess the timeliness and adequacy of the response with respect to the
recent suspension of the seasonal influenza vaccine program for under 5’s
in WA;

• Interview key stakeholders in WA and those in other jurisdictions including
the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) and the
Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and assess all stakeholders’
roles and their ability to develop and act upon the outcomes;

• If necessary, make recommendations as to how the system could be
improved to benefit the WA public; including wider reposting of notifiable
diseases and food poisoning; and

• Make any further enquiries deemed necessary and advise the Minister of
any matters revealed during the investigation which warrant further
assessment.

• Provide an interim report to the Minister after 4 weeks and the final report
to the Minister after 8 weeks.

The Review will, wherever possible, benchmark the WA Health Public Health
Response to the responses in similar services in other jurisdictions within
Australia.
