AUSTRALIA CANCELS COVID VACCINE TRIAL OVER ‘UNEXPECTED’ FALSE POSITIVES FOR HIV
11 December, 2020
he Australian government has canceled further development of a COVID-19 vaccine after several trial participants had false positive tests for HIV. The vaccine was being developed by the University of Queensland, while Australian biotech company CSL Limited had been under contract to provide 51 million doses. The vaccine had been on schedule for mid-2021, with phase two and three clinical trials due to commence in December.
On Friday, however, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that the “University of Queensland vaccine will not be able to proceed based on the scientific advice, and that will no longer feature as part of Australia’s vaccine plan,” adding “I think the decision we’ve made today should give Australians great assurance that we are proceeding carefully, we are moving swiftly, but not with any undue haste here.”
“Our processes will not be compromised. At the end of the day, the Therapeutic Goods Administration – like with any vaccine in Australia – must give their tick-off. Without the tick, there’s no jab when it comes to vaccines in this country. That is true for the Covid-19 vaccine, as it is true for any other vaccine that is administered here in Australia,” Morrison added.
Professor Paul Young, co-lead researcher on the vaccine, said that it would be possible to re-engineer it to avoid false positives but there wasn’t enough time. “Doing so would set back development by another 12 or so months, and while this is a tough decision to take, the urgent need for a vaccine has to be everyone’s priority,” he said.
Health Minister Greg Hunt said that while the HIV test results were false, “the scientific advice is that the risk to vaccine confidence was the principal issue here.”
Australia, meanwhile, has secured contracts for 140 million doses of vaccine, “one of the highest ratios of vaccine purchases and availability to population in the world” according to Hunt, who added “What we can do is vaccinate our population twice over.”

The Australian Government has scrapped a billion dollar coronavirus vaccine agreement with Australian biotech company CSL Limited to supply 51 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine being developed by the University of Queensland after several trial participants returned
The University of Queensland has abruptly ended its trials for coronavirus vaccine the Australian government had ordered in a $1 billion deal for 51 million doses. The deal was terminated after participants returned positive HIV test results over fears that vaccine mishap would damage the public’s confidence in the COVID-19 vaccination program.
On Friday the Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, said:
“University of Queensland vaccine will not be able to proceed based on the scientific advice, and that will no longer feature as part of Australia’s vaccine plan.
Australian vaccine scientist Nikolai Petrovsky had warned the government about the risk ofmonths before the $1billion deal was signed.
Government is using the false-positive COVID test results as an excuse to shut down our businesses, put us all out of work, and wreck our finances. They are doing this because they want people to be so desperate for money, they can bring in a new, “Universal Basic Income” where everyone earns the exact same amount
