Imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates on teens and children may lead to many “paying a price” in mental health for the protection of  adults, a paediatrician has warned.

The message follows the Victorian Government’s ban on unvaccinated children aged 12 and older from entering most public venues, including shops, cafes and restaurants last month.
