Know-C19 Hub

The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global event caused by a novel virus.

As such, public health and policy responses are based on a limited, yet rapidly evolving knowledge and evidence base, including research findings, analysis and early experience from other countries.

The Know-C19 Hub

The Knowledge Hub for COVID-19 (Know-C19 Hub) is the gateway to our research findings, policy and technical reports, and also latest news about Burnet’s COVID-19 work. The Know C-19 Hub will actively seek to address gaps in knowledge and collate and provide novel strategic information on COVID-19 to inform the Australian and International response.

Burnet welcomes COVID-19 vaccine rollout – 22 February 2021

Burnet Institute acknowledges and welcomes the commencement of the COVID-19 vaccination rollout for Australia’s priority groups as an important initiative that will enable people to take action to protect themselves, their families and the community from the global pandemic.

Professor Mike Toole AM, Technical Advisor for Burnet’s Know-C19 Hub, said the robust review processes of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) mean that Australians can be confident that approved vaccines meet strict safety and efficacy criteria.

“It’s an exciting time – I don’t think many of us would have believed 12 months ago that we would be rolling out the first of a number of vaccines,” Professor Toole said.

“Most importantly, all the evidence suggests that it’s a very safe process.”
