You've got questions with Dr Karl

We know there are some questions out there about the COVID-19 vaccines.

To help answer some of those common questions, the WA Government has teamed up with Dr Karl for this You’ve Got Questions series, to address the myths about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Dr Karl is a knowledgeable and trusted voice of the Australian medical and science community, most known for his ‘Science with Dr Karl’ segment on Triple J radio.

Vaccination is a critical issue for Dr Karl – he said that a drop in the number of people getting vaccinated against whooping cough years ago was what motivated him to become a media personality.

“That’s why I got into media – I felt I could do better for the Australian population by telling people to get vaccinated,” he said.

“Getting vaccinated saves lives.”
