Questions about Pandemic H1N1 2009 influenza

Posted by bradfieldresident on 4 August 2009

On Friday 31 July 2009 I sent an email to Fay Gardner, Assistant Secretary of the Health Protection Policy Branch of the Department of Health and Ageing (of the Australian Federal Government). It contained a number of questions about the swine flu “pandemic”, what is in the vaccines, who makes it, and so on.

On Monday 03 August, following up on that email,  I made a phonecall to Ms Gardner’s office in Canberra to ask if it had been received and whether I would receive a response. I was informed by her assistant that the office receives hundreds of emails every day, and, upon searching for my message, was able to confirm that it had been received, and that it would be brought to Ms Gardner’s attention. Shortly thereafter a written confirmation was sent.

On Tuesday morning, Ms Gardner forwarded my questions on to “Health Ops” (apparently the National Incident Room for the Office of Health Protection).

Around lunchtime, Jamie Geysen provided an initial response, writing “I expect that a response to your questions will be provided within the next week.”
