A group of specialist doctors and GPs have become the first medical practitioners in Queensland to launch a legal challenge to the Chief Health Officer’s Covid-19 vaccination mandate. The 11 doctors will ask a judge to reverse the direction requiring them to be fully vaccinated to work in hospitals and other healthcare settings. Their Supreme Court judicial review application follows court challenges to vaccination mandates by police, nurses, ambulance officers, teachers, childcare centre workers and prison officers, still before the court. The group includes gastroenterologist Dr Andrew McIntyre.
