United Australia Party Senator Ralph Babet recently introduced a bill that aims to remove vaccine indemnity from manufacturers. This bill would shift the responsibility for any vaccine-related issues from the government to the pharmaceutical companies themselves. Currently, if something goes wrong with a vaccine, the government is held accountable. Senator Babet argues that it’s common sense for the manufacturers to be accountable as they are the ones producing the vaccines. The proposed bill would ensure that if pharmaceutical companies produce a vaccine that causes harm, they would be liable.
During a candid interview, Senator Babet expressed his belief that this legislation would reveal who in Parliament House prioritizes the interests of the people over Big Pharma. When asked about the possibility of the bill passing, he remained optimistic. He emphasized that the voting process would truly show “who genuinely cares for Australians’ welfare”.
Some concerns were raised about whether removing indemnity might lead major pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer to stop selling their products in Australia. However, Senator Babet countered by comparing the situation to the automotive industry. If a car is faulty, the manufacturer should be responsible, which encourages them to invest in safer products. He believes that the same principle should apply to pharmaceutical companies.
Senator Babet argued that indemnity is a recent concept that primarily benefits big pharma. He asserted that companies like Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca would not pull their products from the market, as their main interest is making money. He stated, “If they produce safe and effective products, there should be no cause for concern.”
If the bill passes, it could signify a significant shift in how pharmaceutical companies operate in Australia. They would be held directly accountable for the safety and quality of their products. This move may also encourage them to prioritize the well-being of the public. The debate around this issue continues, and many are eagerly waiting to see how Parliament will respond.
In other news, Senator Babet is also promoting his new book, “Rebel from the Start.” The book discusses his political journey and his fight against the influence of large corporations in government. Interested readers can secure their copies of the book on Avi Yemini’s website.

In conclusion, Senator Ralph Babet’s bill aims to remove vaccine indemnity from manufacturers, making them accountable for any vaccine-related issues. The proposed legislation has the potential to shift the dynamics of the pharmaceutical industry in Australia and encourage companies to prioritize safety and quality. The debate surrounding this issue continues, and it remains to be seen how Parliament will respond.
