Company says TGA regulations prevented it from responding to incorrect claims about its vaccine in 2021

AstraZeneca has called for reforms to Australia’s rules around discussion of medicines, saying public confusion over its Covid vaccine was created because the company was restricted in explaining health warnings by the nation’s medicines regulator.

The call is contained in more than 2,000 submissions to the federal government’s inquiry into Australia’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

State governments in New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia have also been critical of the federal response to the pandemic, raising concerns about the former Coalition government’s decision-making, access to crucial data and poor coordination across jurisdictions.
