The ABC released an article on the 28th of February 2021 titled “Your COVID-19 vaccine safety questions, answered by experts”. The article was designed to answer the “questions you asked most” by leading experts in infectious diseases and immunisation. The experts include Professor Kristine Macartney, the director of the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS), Dr Christopher Blyth, the co-director of the Wesfarmers Centre of Vaccines and Infectious Diseases,
Isn’t it better to risk COVID than take a new vaccine?
Professor Macartney claims that “these vaccines have been so incredibly well studied” and that it is “amazing what we’ve been able to learn because of the mass participation of people in these trials and roll-out”. At least Professor Macartney and Health Minister Greg Hunt are on the same page, after Mr Hunt recently acknowledged that the “world is engaged in the largest clinical trial, the largest global vaccination trial ever”. The Pfizer clinical trial enrolled approximately 44,000 people in the Phase 2/3 study, of which 37,586 participants were followed for a median of just 60 days! Out of the 37,586 participants, only 170 ‘contracted’ COVID-19, which was enough participants to satisfy the criteria of ‘bad outcomes’. That’s right, two months! The Pfizer clinical trial is due for completion in January 2023. The “more than 200 million doses” that Professor Macartney is referring to are people who are unknowingly engaged in the ongoing clinical trials. The Australian Public Assessment Report clearly states that the long-term safety is “unknown”. Politicians, doctors and scientists have been spruiking the effectiveness and safety of these vaccines for months. How can the vaccines be considered safe when the long-term safety is unknown? To be considered safe, we must not only have data on short-term safety, we must also have data on long-term safety as well. How can Professor Macartney say that these vaccines have been “so incredibly well studied” when the follow up period was only two months? Given that the Pfizer vaccine is using new mRNA technology, it would seem even more imperative to conduct long-term studies to adequately assess the long-term effectiveness and safety of this particular vaccine.
Can I wait and see while others take it?
Professor Macartney explains that “we will only succeed in stopping this pandemic if most of the population is vaccinated”. The Australian Public Assessment Report states that “vaccine efficacy against asymptomatic infection and viral transmission” has not yet been addressed, a “correlate of protection has yet to be established”, and the “duration of protection is not yet known”. If the vaccine does not provide protection, and it does not stop transmission, how will it stop the pandemic Professor?
Professor Macartney continues by claiming that “we quite simply need to get a lot of people protected against serious disease through vaccination”. This may be true, if COVID-19 were in fact, a serious disease. At the time of writing, Australia has had 29,075 COVID-19 cases and 909 deaths. According to the Department of Health, 58 deaths occurred in people under the age of 70. That equates to 6% of the total deaths. 25,280 cases (87%) occurred in people below the age of 70. In Australia, if you are below the age of 70, your chance of survival is 99.8%. This does not account for those with co-morbidities, or for the fact that the majority of cases are mild or asymptomatic, and therefore, the number of people who would have already been infected with SARS-CoV-2 would be significantly higher. Of the 909 deaths, 685 (75%) occurred in aged care facilities out of a total of 2,051 cases. 33% of people that contracted SARS-CoV-2 in aged care passed away with COVID-19. This trend has occurred in many countries around the world. To put these numbers in perspective, 4,124 people died in Australia from influenza and pneumonia in 2019, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. We don’t vaccinate the entire population for influenza, and nor should we for COVID-19, which for the majority of people, is a mild disease.
On Saturday the 20th of March, freedom rallies were held around the world in protest against the tyrannical measures employed by governments to control the COVID-19 pandemic. People all throughout Europe, the U.S., Canada, South Africa and Australia stood up for the basic human rights of all mankind.
Closer to home, peaceful protests were held across the country in many cities. People came together in their thousands to show solidarity, standing as one in a fight for freedom. As mainstream media has a way of doing these days, they were quick to label it an “anti-vaccine movement”, if they in fact bothered to report on it at all.
An article in Perth Now began with the headline “Anti-vaxxers descend on Perth CBD”. Let’s be clear on one thing. People are not “anti-vaccine” for speaking out against a rushed-to-market vaccine, lockdowns, masks, social distancing, QR codes, hotel quarantine and border closers. Many of the people that attended the rallies are vaccinated, and many have decided to vaccinate their children. Some have even received the most recent flu shot, either by choice or as part of the conditions of their employment. However, it appears as though anyone who simply questions the government and mainstream media narrative are quickly slapped with the anti-vax/conspiracy theorist label. Perhaps it should be worn as a badge of honour. Maybe it means that a person has the ability to think for themselves and question the narrative. It certainly means that an individual is asking legitimate questions regarding a new vaccine that has no long-term efficacy or safety data.
At Vaccine Choice Australia, we aim to “gather like-minded people across our country and build a community of people that will Stand-Up together” as the article correctly explains. However, that is where the truth ends and the lies begin. We are not holding protests across Perth and regional Western Australia. We are conducting a series of seminars that aim to educate people on the experimental vaccine and the many risks associated with it. We are providing people with information, so that they can make an informed decision, rather than being manipulated and coerced in taking a vaccine that the pharmaceutical companies are indemnified against.
The article further attacked our keynote speaker, Dr Judy Wilyman, by claiming that her research has been described by medical professionals as a “conspiracy theory”. There were no links or quoted medical professionals to back up this claim. Dr Wilyman has over 25 years of experience on the topic of vaccination, completing her PhD at the University of Wollongong in 2015. Her thesis is titled, “A critical analysis of the Australian Government’s rationale for its vaccination policy”. She has presented her research nationally and internationally, running public seminars and being employed as an expert witness in court cases involving vaccinations. She has conducted talks and webinars on vaccination and informed consent, and has written a book titled, “Vaccination: Australia’s Loss of Health Freedom”. Dr Wilyman is highly sought after for her knowledge and expertise on informed decisions about vaccination.
Towards the end of the Perth Now article, the author states that “both the AstraZeneca vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine have been approved and deemed safe by the Therapeutic Goods Administration”. This is factually incorrect and we demand a retraction of this statement. This is the exact reason why Vaccine Choice Australia is conducting the Stand Up Australia Tour, to counter the misinformation in mainstream media.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration have provisionally approved the AstraZeneca vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine. Neither vaccine has been fully approved, and they cannot be fully approved until the completion of the clinical trials. In the case of the Pfizer vaccine, this happens to be in January of 2023. What’s more, the author actually used the same links as this article, which quite clearly states that both vaccines have received provisional approval only.
According to the TGA media releases, “Provisional approval of this vaccine is valid for two years and means it can now be legally supplied in Australia. The approval is subject to certain strict conditions, such as the requirement for (AstraZeneca and Pfizer) to continue providing information to the TGA on longer term efficacy and safety from ongoing clinical trials and post-market assessment.”
As the media releases state, the longer term efficacy and safety is unknown. The TGA’s Australian Public Assessment Reports (AusPAR) for the AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines supports this statement. In the case of the AstraZeneca vaccine, the AusPAR states that the long-term safety data is “missing information” and that there are “significant concerns about the robustness of the data”. The Pfizer AusPAR sums up the lack of data by stating that “in addition to the unknown longer term safety and unknown duration of vaccine protection, there are other limitations with the submitted data”.
These statements are directly from the TGA website. This is the information that we are sharing with the public. This is the information that is being hidden by the government, mainstream media and pharmaceutical companies. People need to know this information prior to making an ‘informed decision’, otherwise how can they truly make an ‘informed’ decision?
The article concludes by claiming that “last month, thousands of anti-vaxxers protested against ‘mandatory vaccination’ in Scarborough”. A march in February in Perth did attract thousands of protestors against mandatory vaccines, as it did in many cities across the country. However, once again, these ‘protestors’ were not “anti-vaxxers”. They were people marching for medical freedom.
At Vaccine Choice Australia, we exist to create an environment where vaccination choice is normal and coercive and divisive vaccination policy and legislation is seen as discriminatory.
We believe that where there is risk, there must be choice. Always.
We believe that every single Australian has the right to bodily integrity. Always.
We believe that you have the right to choose what you put into your body and the bodies of your children. Always.
We will continue to stand up for these rights. We will continue to fight for medical freedom. And we will continue to be a voice for the people of Australia.

A number of European countries have recently suspended the rollout out of the AstraZeneca vaccine due to fears that the vaccine may be linked to blood clots, some instances of which have resulted in death. Denmark, Iceland and Norway recently halted the use of the vaccine, with Austria and Italy also suspending the use of the vaccine due to concerns with certain batches. Germany, France and the Netherlands are other European countries to also stop the rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Nationals Senator Matt Canavan said that it is “clearly time” for Australia to do the same and halt the rollout of the vaccine until further investigations are carried out. In a recent interview, Mr Canavan said that we should “heed these concerns that European countries have”, and that they are “obviously doing it through legitimate concerns” given that case numbers are far greater in these countries than here in Australia.
The Senator discussed how Australia “does not face and imminent risk of coronavirus spread, and surely the prudent approach here is to suspend our rollout and take heed of the evidence that will emerge in coming months”.
When asked about the TGA, he said that he doesn’t believe that they are “infallible”. Mr Canavan rightly pointed out that the “European health regulators… view should be heeded and listened to in our country as well”. After all, the AstraZeneca vaccine that is being rolled out in Europe is the same vaccine that is being rolled out in Australia. He went on to say that he doesn’t “think that the issues that face Europe are fundamentally different to ourselves, at least in terms of the impact of giving it to human beings”.
Mr Canavan stated that Europe are saying that they have “serious concerns” and that “we’re not just talking about a few countries now, we’re talking about Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Netherlands, Iceland, Ireland… all suspending their rollout”.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) is “urging countries not to panic as Europe’s biggest nations suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine”. When questioned on the WHO’s position, Mr Canavan responded by saying that he doesn’t “have a lot of faith in the WHO. They were saying there was no human-to-human transmission about a year ago, and got it clearly wrong.” This isn’t the first thing that the WHO have gotten wrong. In January 2020, the WHO recommended that the cycle threshold be set at 45 cycles for the RT-PCR test. However, 12 months later, they admitted that the cycle threshold has been set too high and that “careful interpretation of weak positive results is needed”.
Mr Canavan finished by saying that the “UK and Australia are about the only health authorities now saying that there’s not a concern with the AstraZeneca” vaccine. The U.S. have “yet to approve AstraZeneca as well”.
Despite Mr Canavan’s call for the AstraZeneca vaccine to be suspended, Australia’s Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly maintains that the vaccine is safe and effective. Mr Kelly stated that “as noted by the European Medicines Agency, the action taken by several European countries is a precautionary measure so that a full investigation can be rapidly conducted”. Dr Margaret Harris, a spokeswoman for the WHO, said that the “panel had taken the position that the jab should continue to be administered, while an investigation of cases of these thrombo-embolic events is ongoing”. If the investigation finds that the AstraZeneca vaccine is indeed causing blood clotting disorders, will it finally be suspended or even ceased permanently? Or will there be another excuse to continue rolling out a vaccine that has been developed in 6-12 months with no long-term safety data?
We are only experiencing a handful of cases of COVID-19 a day in Australia. There has not been a COVID-19 death in Australia for months. Yet, there are grave concerns with a rushed-to-market vaccine. We are in the unenviable position whereby we can take an even more cautious approach with the vaccine. Member for Hughes Craig Kelly stated on Twitter that “it’s reckless & unconscionable for our health officials to continue to push the AstraZeneca vaccine after Germany, France & Spain suspended its use. Whatever happened to the precautionary principle ‘first do no harm’? Safety first!”
The Australian Public Assessment Report for the AstraZeneca vaccine clearly states that the long-term safety data is “missing information”, and that there are “significant concerns about the robustness of the data. The study design was not entirely fit for purpose to evaluate efficacy in high risk groups, there is insufficient data about dosing, and there were a number of patients lost to efficacy analysis.” Alarm bells were ringing loud and clear, even before the vaccine was rolled out to the general population. How many more warning signs have to appear for our government to stand up and take notice? How many adverse events, and potentially deaths, have to occur before we say enough is enough?
The Swiss Medical Regulator decided not to approve the AstraZeneca vaccine for use due to a lack of data. The list of countries suspending the AstraZeneca vaccine is growing, and now includes smaller European countries Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Luxembourg, as well as Asian countries Indonesia and Thailand.
It is time for Australia to suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine until conclusive evidence proves a link between the vaccine and blood clots does not exist. We are not guinea pigs. We do not consent to taking part in the “largest vaccination trial ever”, as Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt stated recently. These mass vaccination trials must cease immediately, and our government needs to start looking after the health and wellbeing of its citizens properly.
The New Daily published an article recently criticising Clive Palmer’s COVID-19 vaccine newspaper advertisements that appeared in The Australian and The Western Australian newspapers. The article titled, “Fact-checking Clive Palmer’s ‘dangerous’ vaccine ads”, takes issue with Mr Palmer being “very concerned by the emergency use of this vaccine on the general population”. The author states that “this is an incorrect claim, with Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration running a full approval process on both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca – not an emergency use authorisation, as other nations around the world have enacted”.
The article states that the ad “contains factual inaccuracies” and that the “TGA does not have an ‘Emergency Use Authorisation’ pathway for COVID-19 vaccines. Australia has issued a formal regulatory approval for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.”
The author is correct in pointing out that the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is running an approval process. However, the crucial point to note here, which leads to Mr Palmer’s concerns, is that this approval process is currently ongoing. The TGA have only granted PROVISIONAL approval for both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines. Full approval has NOT yet been granted.
In their official media release regarding the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines, the TGA states: “Provisional approval of this vaccine is valid for two years and means it can now be legally supplied in Australia. The approval is subject to certain strict conditions, such as the requirement for (Pfizer and AstraZeneca) to continue providing information to the TGA on longer term efficacy and safety from ongoing clinical trials and post-market assessment.”
Granting provisional approval confirms that the safety and efficacy of the vaccines is still under investigation, particularly in the longer term. This reasonably validates Mr Palmer’s concern that the vaccine rollout has been rushed, and that there is the same inherent risk to Australians receiving the jab, as there would be for any patient participating in an ongoing clinical trial. This notion was reaffirmed by Australian Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt, who stated recently in an interview with ABC news that the “world is engaged in the largest clinical trial, the largest global vaccination trial ever”.
Mr Palmer did not claim that the vaccines have been granted ‘emergency use authorisation’, as they have been in the U.S. This would be an incorrect statement, as they have been granted provisional approval. Mr Palmer also states that the “simple fact is that we don’t have one-year safety data, three-year safety data or five-year safety data for the use of the COVID-19 vaccine”. Mr Palmer is correct. We do not have this data. The Australian Public Assessment Report for the Pfizer vaccine states that the long-term safety is “unknown”. Normal vaccine development takes 10-12 years, whilst these vaccines have been rushed to market in 6-12 months. The Pfizer vaccine uses mRNA technology, which has never been used in a vaccine for humans previously. Mr Palmer, along with every other Australian, should be questioning whether these vaccines are indeed safe, not just in the short-term, but also in the long-term.
The article also takes issue with an advertisement Mr Palmer placed specifically in The West Australian newspaper, requesting readers to “ask Mark McGowan” why the government had “provided pharmaceutical companies with an indemnity from injury or death”. The article claims Mr Palmer is “wrong” to request the Western Australian constituency to question their state Premier, because it was the “Federal Government that inked deals with vaccine manufacturers and provided the indemnity”. Surely the question of who inked the indemnity deal is insignificant compared to the fact that pharmaceutical companies are indemnified against liabilities that could result from the use of this experimental treatment that is still currently undergoing clinical trials?
Mr Palmer should be applauded for having the courage to publicly question these rushed-to-market vaccines, and he should be congratulated for requesting long-term safety data before the vaccine is rolled out to the general population. Like Mr Palmer, we should all be demanding long-term safety data before we choose whether or not to receive the vaccine. We should be made aware of the risks of taking the vaccine, and it should be acknowledged that we will not be able to pursue legal action against the pharmaceutical companies should we or a family member suffer from a serious adverse event or death as a result of the vaccine. These ads are far from dangerous. They are merely asking simple questions that the government is unable to answer. Where there is risk, there must be choice.
“We are going to pay a huge price for this. And I’m becoming emotional because I’m thinking of my children, of the younger generation. I mean, it’s just impossible what we are doing. We don’t understand the pandemic.”
This was Geert Vanden Bossche during a recent interview with Dr Phillip McMillan. Bossche is one of the pre-eminent minds in the world when it comes to vaccines. He is an independent virologist who has worked with pharmaceutical companies GSK Biologicals, Novartis Vaccines & Diagnostics and Solvay Biologicals. He has also worked with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI) and the German Centre for Infection Research (DZIF). He is currently the Managing Director of VARECO. There is no one more highly credentialed than Geert Vanden Bossche.
During his interview with Dr McMillan, Bossche explains that “prophylactic vaccines should typically not be administered to people who are exposed to high infectious pressure”. He continues by saying that “if you have high infectious pressure, it’s so easy for the virus to jump from one person to the other”. Is Bossche saying that rolling out the vaccine during a pandemic will potentially do more harm than good?
In a recent letter to the World Health Organisation, and all of the stakeholders involved, Bossche discusses a “public health emergency of international concern”. In his letter, he outlines “why mass vaccination amidst a pandemic creates an irrepressible monster”. He then asks the key question: “Why does nobody seem to bother about viral immune escape?” These statements are highly concerning, especially from someone of Bossche’s reputation and standing within the vaccine industry.
What exactly is viral immune escape? Immune escape “occurs when the immune system of a human begin (“host”) is unable to respond to an infectious agent, or in other words that the host’s immune system is no longer able to recognise and eliminate a virus or pathogen… While vaccines are created to strengthen the immune response to pathogens, in many cases these vaccines are not able to cover the wide variety of strains a pathogen may have. Instead they may only protect against one or two strains, leading to the escape of strains not covered by the vaccine. This results in the pathogens being able to attack targets of the immune system different than those intended to be targeted by the vaccination.”
According to Bossche, immune escape can occur between the first and second doses of the vaccine. “If your immune response, however, is just mounting, as we see right now with the number of people who get their first dose, they get the first dose, the antibodies are not fully mature, the titres are maybe not very high. So their immune response is suboptimal, but they are in the midst of this war while they are mounting an immune response, they’re fully attacked by the virus and every single time… you have an immune response that is suboptimal in the presence of an infection, in the presence of a virus, that infected person, you are at risk for immune escape.”
Bossche explains that this is a “very, very, very dangerous thing” and that if “you do this in the midst of a pandemic, that is an enormous problem”.
Remember that Geert Vanden Bossche is a virologist who has worked with a number of pharmaceutical companies and organisations in the discovery and development of vaccines. When it comes to vaccines, his knowledge is unrivalled. This is a man whom the authorities should be listening to, not ignoring, as the WHO have done so far. When are governments and pharmaceutical companies going to take notice of these frightening warnings?
During the interview, Dr McMillan asked the simple question, “What do we do?” Geert Vanden Bossche had a very simple answer. “The virus needs to rely on a living cell. So you kill that cell. It’s gone, it’s all over. So we have the solution in the pathogenesis because some people eliminate it.”
How exactly do we kill that cell? Our own innate immune system. “NK (natural killer) cells get activated and they will kill… the cell… in which the virus tries to replicate.” Bossche explains that there is “increasing evidence that what in fact is happening is the NK cells are taking care of the virus”. This predominantly occurs in younger, healthier people that are asymptomatic or only suffer mild symptoms. “They eliminate the virus, they don’t transmit it”. There is increasing evidence that asymptomatic carriers don’t transmit the virus, which brings into question the testing of asymptomatic individuals. There is also increasing evidence that lockdowns have prevented the virus from spreading amongst young, healthy people, which in turn is creating more deadly variants of the virus.
This is where things get really interesting. The vaccines are designed to produce an antibody response to the virus. However, Bossche explains that many people who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms will shed the virus and then eliminate it. He says that there will be a “moderate and short-lived raise of antibodies… So the antibodies cannot be responsible for elimination of the virus” because the antibodies come later. This poses the question of why the general population should be encouraged to take the vaccine when our own innate immune system is capable of eliminating the virus, in most cases, on its own.
Our immune system is comprised of two parts: the non-specific (innate) immune system and the specific (acquired) immune system. The non-specific immune system attacks all pathogens equally, whilst the specific immune system is tailored to the individual pathogen. The vaccine induces specific immunity, as it is designed to produce antibodies to the spike protein of the virus. The enormous problem here is that these specific antibodies “out-compete” our natural antibodies. When they do this, they suppress our innate immune system against not only this virus, but all other viruses.
Bossche likens immunisation to “installing a new software on your computer”. The problem is “you cannot just erase this. So this is very serious. This is very serious.”
“When we vaccinate somebody, we are turning this person into a potential asymptomatic carrier that is shedding the virus.” However, this is not the major problem. “The problem I’m talking about is a global problem. It’s not an individual getting an adverse event. It’s a global problem of… making this virus increasingly infectious.” Bossche continues by saying that “we are very close to vaccine resistance right now”. This could have catastrophic consequences for humanity itself.
Bossche continues to discuss the dangers of “losing the most precious part of your immune system that you could ever imagine” – your innate immune system. He explains that the antigen-specific antibodies will out-compete the natural antibodies, resulting in “long lived suppression” of your immune system. “You may lose every protection against any viral variant or coronavirus variant… Your immunity has become nil. It’s all gone. The antibodies don’t work anymore.” This could be disastrous, as it may lead to a myriad of illnesses and potentially even death in the worst cases.
Bossche is pleading with authorities to “please use the right vaccine at the right place. And don’t use it in the heat of a pandemic on millions and millions of people.” This is exactly what governments the world over are currently doing. Are they making the biggest mistake of all?
In previous pandemics, we relied on natural herd immunity, rather than artificial vaccine-induced immunity. Bossche warns that this is a problem because “what we are now doing is that we are really chasing this virus and it becomes… increasingly infectious… This is a situation that is completely, completely, completely out of control.”
Geert Vanden Bossche concludes by saying that “it is about humanity… it’s about your children. It’s your family. It’s my family. It’s everyone.”
Governments, world leaders, pharmaceutical companies, big tech companies, mainstream media, doctors, scientists and anyone else involved has a responsibility to take note of Geert Vanden Bossche’s warnings. We must pay attention, and we must investigate these claims.
Is it possible that people who are vaccinated are not only inadvertently putting their own health at risk, but the health of everyone else at risk as well?
It is time to stop these mass vaccination trials. We are potentially creating variants of the virus through vaccinations. We are potentially destroying our own immune systems in the process.
The potential effects of these vaccines are irreversible. It will be too late in 1, 2 or 5 years time. We need to answer these questions now. These questions should have already been answered. This is why vaccine trials are conducted thoroughly prior to rolling out a vaccine to general population.
All of these questions need to be answered before it is too late. Let’s hope that it isn’t already too late.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) recently released the Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) summary for the Pfizer COMIRNATY COVID-19 vaccine. The CMI summary starts by stating that “this vaccine is new or is being used differently”. The Pfizer vaccine uses mRNA technology, which has never been used in human beings previously. This would render it as “new”. What is concerning, however, is that the CMI states that it is being used “differently”. What exactly does this mean, and how is it being used differently? Health Minister Greg Hunt stated in a recent interview that the “world is engaged in the largest clinical trial, the largest global vaccination trial ever”. Is this what they mean by being used “differently”? Do they mean that anyone who receives the vaccine prior to January 2023, which is the estimated completion date for the Pfizer clinical trial, will be a human guinea pig? We certainly deserve an explanation as to how the vaccine is being used differently.
The CMI summary continues by stating that “this approval has been granted on the basis of short term safety and efficacy data. Evidence of longer term efficacy and safety from ongoing clinical trials and vaccination in the community continues to be gathered and assessed.” As mentioned previously, the Pfizer clinical trial is due for completion in January 2023. In his interview, Greg Hunt outlined that “above all else, safety, safety, safety” was the government’s primary concern, as it should be. We have heard many prominent government officials, include Prime Minister Scott Morrison, categorically state that the vaccine is effective and safe. How can one say that the vaccine is safe, without long-term safety data? The vaccine may well be safe in the short term, but we have no long term data to definitely classify it as safe. Ruud Dobber, a member of (AstraZeneca’s) senior executive team, stated that “this is a unique situation where we as a company simply cannot take the risk if in… four years the vaccine is showing side effects”. Although this is a different vaccine, it has also been provisionally approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, and has a similar lack of data compared to the Pfizer vaccine. If the vaccine is showing side effects in four years, will the government then deem it unsafe? It will be too late by then, and the damage would have already been done.
Under the heading “Why am I being given COMIRNATY?”, the CMI states that “COMIRNATY is a vaccine given to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in adults and adolescents from 16 years of age and older… COMIRNATY works by triggering your immune system to produce antibodies and blood cells that work against the virus, to protect against COVID-19 disease.” This is in direct contrast to the TGA’s Australian Public Assessment Report, which states that a “correlate of protection has yet to be established. The vaccine immunogenicity cannot be considered and used as a surrogate for vaccine protective efficacy at this stage.” The TGA is a government organisation that has produced the Australian Public Assessment Report and the Consumer Medicine Information. One report states that the Pfizer vaccine does not provide protection, yet the other one says that it does. In fact, the Pfizer clinical trials “specify that they do not even test for immunity”. This would indicate that the vaccine does not provide immunity, and that the TGA and the Australian government are misleading the Australian public.
Following this, the CMI states that “you should not be given COMIRNATY if you have had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in COMIRNATY”. One of the ingredients in the vaccine is polyethylene glycol (PEG), which is used to transport mRNA into the cell. It is estimated that up to 70% of Americans are allergic to PEG. How would someone know if they are allergic to PEG, given that most people would never have heard of it? Should we all get tested before we receive the vaccine to assess for an allergy to PEG? There have been a number of severe allergic reactions to the vaccine around the world, and it would appear that PEG is the culprit. No studies have been done on this, despite our repeated calls for such studies prior to the roll out of the vaccine.
According to the CMI, you should check with your doctor if you have had “a severe allergic reaction or breathing problems after any other vaccine or after being given COMIRNATY in the past, fainted following any needle injection, a severe illness or infection with high fever, a weakened immune system or are on a medicine that affects your immune system, a bleeding disorder, bruise easily or are on a blood thinning medicine”. The Australian Public Assessment Report states that the following information is missing: “Use in immunocompromised patients… Use in frail patients with co-morbidities (for example, COPD, diabetes, chronic neurological disease, cardiovascular disease)… Use in patients with autoimmune or inflammatory disorders… Interactions with other vaccines”. There is absolutely no data on these groups of people. Should people that fall into these categories be advised not to take the vaccine until further data is collected? What will the side effects be for these people? Where is the short and long-term safety data? This is highly dangerous, incredibly unethical and medically negligent.
The CMI initially stated that the vaccine will be administered to “protect against COVID-19 disease”. Further into the summary, it now states that “as with any vaccine, COMIRNATY may not fully protect all those who receive it and it is not known how long you will be protected”. Does it protect us or not? Now the CMI is contradicting itself.
Furthermore, the CMI summary explains that you must “talk to your doctor if you have any other medical conditions, take any other medicines, or are pregnant or plan to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.” The Australian Public Assessment Report clearly states that the “use in pregnancy and while breast feeding” is also considered “missing information”. In the UK, those that are planning to conceived within two months, those who are pregnant, or lactating mothers are advised not to have the vaccine. However, Health Minister Greg Hunt has stated that “for women who are considering being pregnant, they should feel free to take the vaccine”. There is no data on this group of women. COVID-19 has affected such a miniscule minority of pregnant women worldwide, that the risk of taking the vaccine outweighs the risk of developing COVID-19 during pregnancy.
“Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure about what medicines, vitamins or supplements you are taking and if these affect, or are affected by, COMIRNATY.” The Australian Product Information states that “no interaction studies have been performed” when it comes to interactions with other medicines. Once again, how can the Australian government, the TGA, the Prime Minister and the Health Minister claim that this vaccine is safe when these studies have yet to be conducted? A large portion of the Australian population take some form of medication, and many of these people have co-morbidities. These vital studies need to be conducted before you can label this vaccine as safe.
Finally, the CMI summary states that “other side effects not listed here may occur in some people”. Other side effects? What are the other side effects? Are they mild or severe side effects? Are they short or long term side effects? Are they neurological or cardiovascular? We simply don’t know as they are not listed. Informed consent requires that all known side effects be made available to the patient, so that they can make an informed decision on the benefits versus the risks prior to consenting to treatment. This is clearly not being done as it should be, and is a gross breach of best medical practices.
It is time that the Australian government came clean and owned up to their lies and deception. The vaccine may be proven to be safe, however, one cannot definitively state that it is currently safe with so much data unavailable. It is little wonder that more and more Australians are refusing the COVID-19 vaccine. We have the right to decide what we inject into our bodies and the bodies of our children. The government do not have the right to coerce or manipulate people into taking an unproven and experimental vaccine.
Medical freedom is one of our basic human rights, and where there is risk, there must be choice.
On the 23rd of February 2021, Alan Jones hosted a segment on Sky News titled: “Government at risk of undermining its vaccination program.”
In this 8-minute clip, he addressed the “stack of” lethal comments provoked by a prior segment where he interviewed anti-vaxxers ahead of airing the now infamous documentary by Jane Hansen, which was on its way to the screen. Alan goes on to explain that “this is why we must sensibly address those who have concerns of vaccinations”.
The voices of those opposed are becoming louder. At the presentation ceremony for the Australian Open Tennis, Jane Hrdlicka, the President of Tennis Australia, was booed for a long time when she talked about the world entering a new phase of positivity because of vaccination. This was broadcast live across the globe, removing any ability for a media coverup. It is becoming evident that the majority are not aligned with the government and media rhetoric.
Alan Jones advised that he is pro-vax, stating that he rolls his sleeve up for the flu shot every year and “will be rolling it up for this one”. However, he admitted that we cannot ignore the powerful sentiments of people who are suspicious of the propaganda in relation to these vaccines. He states that “the government have turned a blind eye to contrary opinion, they have in fact tried to silence those who express such opinions. People have been banned from social media from arguing well researched views on vaccination.”
He states that the text-in line was “on fire” following the interview with Jane Hansen last Thursday night. People wanting more debate, and angry that reservations about the vaccines are being dismissed as simply “anti-vaxxers”.
Mr Jones states very clearly, “I am saying the government is at risk of undermining the whole vaccination program by conducting a one-sided government edict saying, ‘everyone must roll up their sleeve and get the jab otherwise no travel unless you’ve had the vaccine, or you’re not welcome in your place of work unless you’ve had the jab’. I have said all along, as have others, the only way through this is via debate. We’ve had none. When you seek to shut down every opposing view, it only raises suspicions.”
He goes on to read some of the comments that were written in, one of which said, “Come on Alan, there’s a vast difference between an anti-vaxxer and a regular person who is questioning the validity and safety of a rushed vaccine for a spurious illness, that we are being coerced into getting if we want to maintain our God given freedoms.”
The vaccines are being touted as the only way out for Investment and Jobs, pointing out that there are only 39 cases of coronavirus in Australia. Last year when Alan Jones mentioned herd immunity may be the best way out of the pandemic – “all hell broke loose. Coronavirus cases in America have fallen by 77% over the past six weeks, you don’t need to be a cynic to suggest that no medication would slash cases by that figure. Experts are saying that natural immunity from prior infection might be more common than is measured by testing.”
“Professor Marty Makary, an American surgeon, a New York Times Best Selling Author, and John Hopkins Health Policy Expert, argues today that vaccines don’t explain the steep decline in coronavirus cases over the past six weeks because vaccination rates were then low, and that they take weeks to kick in. He is predicting actually that Covid-19 will be mostly gone by April and that 55% of Americans would now have natural immunity from prior infections, that is herd immunity.”
Alan goes on to state, “Now remember I’ve said all along that 99% of all cases were mild, so even though someone wasn’t tested (and of course millions haven’t been who have had it), that triggers natural immunity. Professor Makary acknowledges that people are now getting vaccinated and that 15% of Americans so far have received the vaccine. He makes the point and I quote, ‘Many experts, politicians and journalists are afraid to talk about herd immunity. Herd immunity is the inevitable result of viral spread and vaccination.’”
Alan closes with, “To all my viewers from last Thursday night who were very critical, your texts were welcome, and generally your criticisms were valid. It’s a pity government doesn’t listen to legitimate criticism but instead, want to silence it”.
One can log onto any government social media page and see that the silent majority is now making the most noise. People are standing up. There is power in numbers, and the pro-choice movement have the numbers, even though the TV and newspapers are spurting a very different narrative.
“In a world of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a critical act.” – George Orwell.
We must not be afraid to disagree. Where there is risk, there must be choice. Always.

Today Nine News reported that a Gold Coast Health Worker has suffered anaphylaxis after receiving their first dose of the Pfizer Covid 19 vaccine. The unidentified health worker was still in intensive care at the time of writing.
This is not ok.
The very short article goes on to explain “Anaphylaxis has been identified as a possible side effect from any vaccination.”
Yes – you read that right. Anaphylaxis is a listed side effect of any vaccine. If you read the vaccine inserts, you will note anaphylaxis listed under adverse events. We encourage our readers to go click on these (perhaps the very common MMRII for example, which is given to infants), do a word search (ctrl+f) for anaphylaxis, it is right there for all to see.
Why is it acceptable to have a death-inducing reaction to a vaccine, when the risk of death from the disease the vaccine is trying to protect you from is so minimal. In the case of Covid19 we are talking about a fatality rate of less than 0.05%.
The answer is, it is NOT acceptable. Not for a Covid-19 vaccine, not for any vaccine.
The harsh reality is that there is no long-term safety data for any Covid 19 vaccine. We simply do not know that it is safe – that is the bottom line.
The article also goes on to state that “Gold Coast Health advise that you must not get a COVID-19 vaccine if you have had a severe allergic reaction to a previous dose of the same COVID-19 vaccine or any kind of anaphylaxis after exposure to any ingredient of the vaccine”.
So let’s take a look at the ingredients in the Pfizer vaccine, you know, just to check and see if we are allergic to any of them:
The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine includes the following ingredients: mRNA, lipids ((4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate), 2 [(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide, 1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine, and cholesterol), potassium chloride, monobasic potassium phosphate, sodium chloride, dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate, and sucrose.
It is safe to assume that most human beings have never tried mRNA DNA by injection seeing as though it has never before been approved for human use until now under “emergency authorisation”. A quick research into the rest of the ingredients would leave even the most scientific laymen among us absolutely horrified.
Does our government really think Australians are a bunch of simpletons who will just blindly line up for this type of untested, unapproved, and as we see now, potentially fatal product? All to simply reduce the severity of symptoms for a virus which most people don’t even know they have had until they get a PCR test? Shame on anyone who underestimates the grit of an Aussie.
Let’s circle back to the MMRII vaccine as an example that has gone through the extended and proper development process for an approved, on-the-market product. Below is the complete list of adverse reactions detailed in the MMRII vaccine insert by Merck & Co. Worth noting this vaccine is administered to infants and toddlers in multiple doses, often before any allergens to the child are discovered, and long before that child can even speak.
“The following adverse reactions include those identified during clinical trials or reported during postapproval use of M-M-R II vaccine or its individual components.
Body as a Whole:
Panniculitis; atypical measles; fever; syncope; headache; dizziness; malaise; irritability.
Pancreatitis; diarrhea; vomiting; parotitis; nausea.

We share this list in full to demonstrate that we simply do not have this long-term safety data for any Covid 19 vaccines.
Here at VCA we encourage our readers to research for themselves and are happy to provide support and links to information.
