Vaccine inclusion reversal on the table at Mundaring

VACCINE mandates are back on the Shire of Mundaring’s council agenda next week after one councillor signalled her intent to reverse part of a highly contentious anti-mandate motion passed last month.

The original motion, presented in two parts, was to write to WA premier Mark McGowan to drop COVID vaccine mandates and for council to actively promote an inclusive community and plan events and activities for everyone regardless of vaccination status.

Both parts were moved and carried separately 5/4 with Crs Paige McNeil, James Martin, Trish Cook and Neridah Zlatnik against.

However, deputy president McNeil’s revocation motion, supported by Crs Zlatnik, Cook and Karen Beale, proposes to withdraw part two of the motion with a report to be presented prior to next week’s May 10 meeting.

Other motions from the electors’ meeting discussed by council in April, included the Shire of Mundaring declaring itself a ‘Vax Pro Choice Council’ and adoption of a ‘COVID-19 Vaccination Pro-Choice Advocacy Statement’.

Both failed to gain the support of council, as did two others concerning council’s role in the implication of vaccine mandates and a review into COVID vaccination injury, which were noted with no further actions.

Two more were noted for further investigation.

Those above two motions directed the Shire to research and review the impacts of mandatory vaccinations on the functions of local government and the community and local businesses and to report back to council.
