Clive Palmer anti-vaccination flyers described by the Therapeutic Goods Administration as "misleading" and posing an "unacceptable threat" should be ignored, Bass Liberal MHR Bridget Archer says.
The flyers started landing in letterboxes in Launceston this week.

They have been distributed in various parts of Australia, including Tasmania, after Mr Palmer initially tried to run a radio advertisement campaign that was subsequently discontinued by the broadcasting company.
Reports have already been received of flyers appearing in letterboxes in Invermay.
His campaign claims 210 deaths from the COVID-19 vaccine, but this figure included anyone who had died from any cause after receiving the vaccine.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration stated that 3000 Australians die per week, so it was expected that some deaths would have occurred within days or weeks post-vaccination based on average numbers.
The TGA has found one case of vaccine-related thrombosis - or any other related condition - had resulted in a death in Australia.
Ms Archer said she had received queries from her constituents about the flyers.
"I have already responded to constituents who have raised concerns about these flyers," she said.
"I encourage people to ignore unsolicited and unqualified medical advice such as this and seek advice from official sources.
"If people have any concerns around vaccinations they should seek specific advice from a medical practitioner."
The TGA previously condemned similar radio advertisements promoting misleading information.
"Such misinformation, in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, poses an unacceptable threat to the health of Australians. COVID-19 has resulted in the deaths of over 3.7 million people worldwide including over 900 deaths in Australia," the TGA said in a statement earlier this month.
"Public figures have a responsibility to be factual and to not to undermine our health through spreading misleading information."
