Woodford Folk Festival criticised for one sided anti-vaccination promotion

Queensland’s Woodford Folk Festival has come under fire for promoting the discredited views of the Australian Vaccination Network’s founder and president Meryl Dorey.

In 2010 the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission issued a public health warning stating that the AVN provides information that is incorrect, misleading, and poses a risk to public health and safety.

AMA Queensland president Richard Kidd said the festival has a responsibility to add speakers who could provide the medically accurate side of the immunisation argument.
