Mandatory vaccines set for healthcare workers

Frontline health staff in Victoria will be forced to receive vaccinations in order to keep treating patients, according to new laws introduced to parliament.

All healthcare workers in public and private hospitals with direct patient contact will be required to be vaccinated under the new legislation, including doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners and more.

MANDATORY VACCINATIONS

The Victorian government is ‘stepping up the fight’ against the flu this season by making vaccinations compulsory for frontline doctors and nurses caring for the state’s most vulnerable patients.

According to an announcement by Premier Dan Andrews, legislation is currently being introduced to make it mandatory for frontline healthcare workers to be fully vaccinated.

The Health Services Amendment (Mandatory Vaccination of Healthcare Workers) Bill 2020 amends the Health Services Act 1988 and the Ambulance Services Act 1986 to provide the Secretary of Health powers to give vaccine directions to public and private hospitals, health services, health service establishments and ambulance services.

Currently tabled in the Legislative Council (at the time of publishing), the new bill specifies requirements for persons employed or engaged by those entities to be vaccinated or ‘prove immunity’ to specified diseases. 

According to the initial introduction print, the purpose of the new direction is to “ensure the health and safety of patients, employees and other persons working in or visiting health services, by limiting the risk of transmission of vaccine-preventable disease”. The bill explains:

The proposal notes that such consequences for refusal may include that the worker is redeployed to a different area of the hospital, or that the worker’s employment or engagement is terminated.

Furthermore, a failure for an institution to comply may result in the registration of the health service establishment being suspended or revoked in accordance with relevant legislative structures.

The new laws will mean healthcare workers must be fully vaccinated to ‘protect’ themselves and patients against the flu each year, as well as whooping cough, measles, chicken pox and hepatitis B.

If passed, the laws will represent the final step in an incremental creep of enforcement measures for healthcare workers over the last decade in Australia.

NO JAB, NO JOB

The move is the latest example in a trend that has seen both public and private sectors introduce policies requiring vaccinations for work, leaving many concerned that it was only a matter of time before proof of ‘immunisation’ may soon become a mandatory requirement for all employment.

Across the entire service of Victoria, 84 per cent of staff received the influenza vaccine last year, but among some sites — particularly aged care — it was up to 100 per cent of staff and residents.

However, according to BHS Chief Medical Officer and Associate Professor, Rosemary Aldric:

“The vaccination won’t necessarily protect a person from getting the flu but it will minimise or reduce the severity and length of the condition.”

It was announced in April 2018 that vaccination programs offered to all staff in residential aged-care homes in NSW would become compulsory, and it will now be required that every aged care provider offers the flu vaccine to every single worker.

Earlier that year, the Australian government released a directive requiring all staff in “high-risk workplaces” to provide information on their flu vaccination status, including restricting access to work in certain areas for those who refuse to comply.

At the time, many suspected this was a push towards mandatory restrictions across all areas in the near future, and now with this announcement, the concerns have become a reality.

Believe it or not, there is no universal requirement across Australia that staff in workplaces be vaccinated against infectious diseases, either for their own protection or those in their care.

Furthermore, despite numerous campaigns promoting the flu vaccine to Australian health workers over the last decade, uptake has been documented to range from only 16% onwards.

Could healthcare workers set the precedent for a wave to come across other industries? Is it only a matter of time before the coercion becomes open tyranny?

INCREASED PROPAGANDA

In recent years, Australia has seen increased programming from mainstream media and government authorities urging various changes across workplace private policy and public legislation.

The aim is to slowly coerce the population into receiving vaccinations – or miss out. For example, some roles within Queensland Health are now designated specifically as ‘Vaccination Preventable Disease (VPD) risk roles’.

Furthermore, most workplaces run intensive vaccination programs, which may include mass immunisation clinics, mobile carts, posters and email reminders, and some industries will not accept you as an employee or your child into care without updated vaccination documents.

To implement compulsory staff vaccination would not be hard. We are already here. Media propaganda surrounding vaccines remains strong enough to convince private sector employers that they simply need to develop a vaccination policy and then direct staff to comply with it.

Many civil liberty groups and pro-choice campaigners have expressed concerns in recent years that, while not openly mandatory just yet, subtle changes in vaccine perception and policy in Australia will lead the public to a system where vaccination will be a staple for essential activities in life.

This has already begun to occur overseas, where a requirement to serve the greater ‘social good’ has punished multiple employers and industries for not incorporating policies to help curve falling rates – because apparently discrimination is allowed if ‘it goes to a person’s ability to do the job’.

Hundreds of workers have been fired in other countries for opting out of the flu vaccination when their employer required inoculation. In 2012, TriHealth, the largest employer in Cincinnati, Ohio, terminated 150 employees who did not comply with their flu vaccine mandate.

The Australian government’s claims of safety and efficacy of vaccines are being underpinned by non-objective science provided by an oligarchy of pharmaceutical companies through industry-funded institutions and lobby groups.

Despite this, the pro-vaccine lobby continues to push the notion that herd immunity is required in order for society to protect itself from diseases of the modern world. Healthcare is the first step.

We have been contacted by groups opposing the bill on the ground. Stay tuned for a report on the reactions and responses from concerned citizens in Australia.

  1. Absolutely CRIMINAL & OUTRAGEOUS!!!

    Vaccines are not designed to boost the immune system, on the contrary they interfere + disable it.
    Not to mention the toxic cocktails that is in their ingredients. They also contain live viruses, foreign DNA, likely embedded microchips etc.

    What a cunning way to introduce & speed up viral outbreaks, allergies all via weaponized Vaccines, under the guise of health & protection. Those who are complicit & are pushing for this, rightly deserve to be locked up & be held accountable.

    So all the health workers who are injected, will more likely pass on these viruses directly onto their patients. No doubt, all by design.

    In reality, this has nothing to do with health, it’s the other way around, it’s to hinder & to prevent it.

    1. my family member will lose her job do you know of any groups that are fighting this legally – its very hard to find information on the web as its all so one sided – if you search for groups on facebook all you get is Bill Gates and the WHO

  2. COPIED
    The Government have now enacted detainment laws. Know your rights.

    From another page I am on – Under the human rights act 2004 ACT — it doesnt matter if your in NSW , QLD or VIC or anywhere else.. you simply quote section 118 of an act to constitute the commonwealth of Australia ) .. it says under section 10 sub section 2 …

    10 Protection from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment etc
    (1)No-one may be—(a)tortured; or(b)treated or punished in a cruel, inhuman or degrading way.
    (2)No-one may be subjected to medical or scientific experimentation or treatment without his or her free consent

    Further more… this is written in the helsinki code , the nuremberg trials verdict.

    Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986

    Schedule 2—International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
    Part 3
    Article 7

    No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In particular, no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.

    but we keep going…

    Universal Declaration of Human Rights
    Article 5.

    No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

    state of victoria… and will be also found in other states and territories…
    s 10(c) of the Charter [of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act2006 (Vic)] thus:

    “A person must not be— …

    (c) subjected to medical … treatment without his or her full, free and informed consent.”

    we are not done yet.. lets add more goodies to the pile…

    Based on this common law approach, four jurisdictions in Australia (New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria) have enacted legislation which adopts a functional test of competence.1 In Victoria (the location of this case), s 36(2) of the Guardianship and Administration Act 1986 states:

    a person is incapable of giving consent to the carrying out of a special procedure or medical or dental treatment if the person —

    (a) is incapable of understanding the general nature and effect of the proposed procedure or treatment; or

    (b) is incapable of indicating whether or not he or she consents or does not consent to the carrying out of the proposed procedure or treatment.

    Biosecurity act is a violation of the criminal code act 1995..

    268.13 Crime against humanity–torture

    A person (the perpetrator ) commits an offence if:

    (a) the perpetrator inflicts severe physical or mental pain or suffering upon one or more persons who are in the custody or under the control of the perpetrator; and

    (b) the pain or suffering does not arise only from, and is not inherent in or incidental to, lawful sanctions; and

    (c) the perpetrator’s conduct is committed intentionally or knowingly as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against a civilian population.

    Penalty: Imprisonment for 25 years..
    (C+P)… Copy, save & share…

  3. Please 🙏 please 🙏 sign this petition.

    We want a Vaccinated V Un-Vaccinated study.

    Pro- Vax or not wouldn’t you want to know that the vaccine schedule given to your babies is safe and in fact making them healthy?

    Wouldn’t you want to know if in fact they are being protected by deadly diseases?

    Wouldn’t you want to know if in fact it’s true that the chronic disease epidemic is only a vaccinated epidemic?
    https://www.aph.gov.au/petition_list?id=EN1356

  4. I will lose my job on 01 May as just heard that all aged care workers have to be vaccinated with the flu shot. I read the flu insert and it has not been tested for carcinogens etc. I have never had a flu and am not interested in putting chemicals in my body for the ‘greater good’ of others. If they have the flu jab they should be covered, so why do I need it then?

  5. I agree Krissy. Sorry for your loss of work but at t least you can choose another job. I can’t choose for my mother to not be in an aged care facility at the age of 91 but apparently I won’t be allowed to visit her if I don’t get the flue vaccine either. How dare they prevent me from visiting my mother. And if they are vaccinated how can they catch it from me anyway. grrrrrr

    1. I am very sad for all of us. I would say it’s because it does not work, Have a look at this insert, if I am understanding correctly, seroconversion is where the body creates antibodies (which is what they want for a vaccine) and the rates are only just over 50%. Which means that it does not work for almost half the people putting these toxins in their body?? https://www.fda.gov/media/119856/download

    2. And yes it is utterly devastating to not allow people to enter or work or visit an aged care facility without the flu shot. If the flu shot was 100% effective at stopping any flu then they might have a leg to stand on, but it is not! It only covers 3-4 strains of what they ‘think’ might be the ones that will be around that year. Evil will be avenged one day, if not in this life then in the next one.

    3. Hi Deborah could you get the facility to take your mum to the gates? Then you can take her out and visit. Or else get someone vaccinated to check her out the facility? I am refusing and the facility will need to fire me. I am worried about my future but can not go against my beliefs.

  6. Absolutely outrageous and a disgusting attempt at taking away freedom towards my own body. A few months ago there was massive protests over ‘rights to our own bodies’ (my body, my choice) but this goes completely against that.
    Aged care will loose great workers and they will be replaced by uneducated ones because of this and the ‘gov funded tafe aged care course)
    Last i heard we lived in a free country…guess not.

  7. There are over 270 new vaccines currently in the pipeline. Should this legislation pass, in the future, there is no upper limit for mandated vaccinations and no recourse for those who are harmed by these products. Healthcare professionals are not happy to give a blanket authority to the government which in turn will bear no responsibility for the harms caused by their policies.

    1. So I will lose my job by 01 May. I have outlined to the organisation my concerns regarding the health risks and lack of flu vaccine testing as per the flu vaccine package insert (not tested for pregnancy safety, lactation safety, genotoxicity, or carcinogenic effects) and the fact that there are flu vaccine caused illness, injury and death specified in the TGA adverse affects database. http://www.tga.gov.au/database-adverse-event-notifications-daen
      https://apps.tga.gov.au/PROD/DAEN/daen-entry.aspx , and that this goes against my faith and belief. The company I work for has responded that they will terminate my employment if I do not have one, and that they take no responsibility and will not compensate for illness, injury or death from a forced flu shot. There are lots of cases that have WON in court from flu shot illness, injury and death here: https://www.mctlaw.com/vaccine-injury/cases/

      1. Chrissy, like you my wife is also one of those that will lose their jobs because like you we believe in freedom to choose and God-given freedom and human rights and also because it goes against our faith and beliefs. However, those currently running the world, do not really care about anyone except their NWO and their agenda, which has been in the planning for many decades ( I recall hearing about all of these in the late 90s when I was still at University ;the change of constitutional laws, the NWO, the one world government, agenda21 and the one world currency, but did not know when it would eventuate. Now I do.).

        Obviously the world has now completely changed overnight and they are bringing about removal of all freedom under the pretense of COVID-19(84) very rapidly. Unfortunately many people are so scared out of their wits ( through monstruous lies ) that they are asking for the enforcement of a Police state and would rather lose their freedom for food and for the comfort they are used to, without knowingly understanding that this is not the end game and that things will get worse as time goes on and that they will eventually lose all their freedom and become nothing but mere servants to the 1%. I would rather lose my job than lose my freedom and will fight for it to the bitter end, but that is just me.

  8. Yes me too, I should not have to compromise my beliefs and risk my health and safety to keep my job. The ‘benefits’ do not outweigh the risks for us but we do not get that choice. My husband is a cook in aged care and i am a carer, we will both lose our jobs. The govt health websites say vaccines are tested and safe when the package insert for the flu jab clearly states it is not tested for pregancy safety, lactation safety, genotoxicity, and carcinogenic safety, it does not work for everyone, and there are no long term studies on health effects over time. Someone is lying here. The studies I could find in the flu jab insert are from trials by the company themselves (already suspicious seeing they make a lot of money from this) and seem to indicate at best that around 60% may get antibodies from the jab, the rest don’t. Basically we are the test study on safety over time. Just bad luck if you happen to be the healthy person that gets sick, injured or die from the flu jab. I wonder how many people read the insert before they get it? The biggest issue that I have seen in aged care is boredom, loneliness and depression, this law has just made that much worse. It is an abuse on the elderly. I absolutely love my job and the residents, I would love to stay.

    1. My wife also works in age care and has the same predicament as you do. She has also seen the increased abuse on the elderly as of late and always talks about it. The depression, the boredom, and the damage the flu vaccine has been doing to the elderly at the age care she works at, with a lot of them ending up in palliative care after the flu shots. I have been a little more fortunate so far but again, my company went from a Fortune 500 to a very small company within the past 2 years. When the company started to split and was being broken down into bits, I knew immediately that it was going to eventually disappear as the likes of many other Fortune 500. I do not give it past the end of the year or the beginning of next year as the company is not the “chosen” one to be part of the NWO, so I will more than likely lose my job. I believe that the vaccination will become mandatory for all and there is no way I will get vaccinated. I am not fearful and I intend to fight for my freedom to the end.

  9. I am a nurse in a nursing home and have been weekly reminded via SMS from my company that I will be removed from the roster on 1 May 2020 if I don’t get the flu shot. I will stand for my health and life and will not be the subject of medical experimentation. I would rather lose my job than allow any of these harmful DNA altering substances into my blood stream. Don’t let money dictate your life. They can keep their money if it comes with vaccines

    1. I am in the same boat and am not doing it either and not resigning.
      Please join this new FB site “solidinformation”, there are lots of things you can do and I just found out today that there is no legislation to force the flu jab, it is only a temporary legislation addition due to australia being in a state of emergency. So once this is over, technically you shoud not be forced to have the flu jab to keep your job.

      1. But even it’s a temporary legislation, once you are terminated, you may not be able to get the job back and entitlements you have now …
        I wish I can have some time off from my work till the legislation is lifted. I’m a kitchen hand at an aged care in WA and 4 months short to get long service leave…
        Just waiting for a termination letter from my work.

        I will keep working on this issue and spread it to people around me till we get our rights back!

      2. I know about this campaign. But I am not a qualified to vote because I am a permanent residence. So I cannot do it… I would love to know what I can do to change this country better, more medical freedom.
        I definitely tell all my work mates this campaign!
