Qantas CEO Alan Joyce has announced that Qantas will launch an incentives program from July to encourage people to get vaccinated. The program will also include anyone who has already received the vaccine.
In a recent interview, Mr Joyce said that “we are looking at giving 1000 points flight vouchers, credits and we are going to offer ten mega prizes, at least one for each state and territory, where a family of four get unlimited travel on the Qantas and Jetstar network, anywhere in the network for a year”.
“We are trying our best to help with this vaccine rollout – it will be retrospective and will include anyone who has already been vaccinated and will apply to anybody that is vaccinated until the end of 2021.”
This announcement comes after Mr Joyce’s comments in late 2020 that “future international travel will require compulsory vaccinations”, and that Qantas will be “changing terms and conditions for travel”.
It seems that Qantas isn’t the only company incentivising the experimental injection. In the US, New Jersey was offering a “shot and a beer” for those who received their first dose in May, whilst Detroit is giving out “$50 prepaid cards” to anyone who drives a resident to a vaccine site. Meanwhile in Maryland, state employees are being offered a “$100 payment” for being vaccinated.
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is offering a free doughnut a day for the rest of the year with proof of vaccination. Which is ironic given that people with comorbidities such as obesity are at far greater risk of dying from COVID-19 than those who are healthy.
In Cleveland, Chagrin Cinemas were offering free popcorn, whilst Market Garden Brewery were offering 10-cent beers. In gets worse. In Arizona, Mint Dispensary were offering free cannabis, whilst Greenhouse of Walled Lake were offering a free pre-rolled joint. If the vaccine doesn’t get you, the drugs most certainly will.
Some of the other companies offering incentives in the US include AT&T, Instacart, Target, Trader Joe’s, Chobani, Petco, Darden Restaurant, McDonald’s and Dollar General. This is despite the fact that there has been over 4,400 deaths reported to the VAERS database in the US following vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccine.
However, it appears that Ohio is the place to be. Governor Mike De Wine announced that there will be five lucky winners of a cash prize of $1 million. That’s right. You could win a million dollars for simply rolling up your sleeve and taking an injection that bypassed critical animal trials. Hopefully these lucky people will actually get to enjoy their prize money.
Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly has stated that Australia needs to look at “as many incentives as we can” to increase vaccination rates. Part of this plan is vaccine passports. Prime Minister Scott Morrison recently announced his intentions to develop vaccine passports to allow people to travel domestically without the need for quarantine if they come from a known ‘hotspot’. This was met with severe backlash, not just from the public, but also from state premiers and even his own colleagues.
The Australian Immunisation Handbook states that for consent to be legally valid, “it must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation”. Could incentives be considered as coercion?
It is difficult enough for people to find the truth amongst the government and media propaganda, let alone have incentives thrown their way to ‘push them over the line’.
If we were in the midst of a global pandemic so severe that we had to shut our international borders, quarantine every returning traveller for 14 days in a hotel, lockdown cities for days or weeks at a time, costing the economy billions of dollars and countless livelihoods (and lives), mandate masks in and outside, and force thousands, if not millions, of people to get tested, even when healthy, why do we need to incentivise the vaccine that is supposed to be our ‘ticket’ to freedom?
If this pandemic was a deadly as we are made to believe, and the vaccine was safe and effective as we have been repeatedly told, then wouldn’t people be rushing out to get it?
We have seen the effects of the recent lockdown in Victoria, and how there has been a surge in people receiving the vaccine. Was this done intentionally? Are our governments using draconian lockdown measures to pressure people into taking the vaccine?
Campaign Edge owner Dee Madigan claimed recently that “the only way to get through to people now is through a scare campaign… Or the other way to do it is to offer people incentives.” Why do people need to be scared into taking an injection with no long-term safety data for a virus with a 99.8% survival rate in those under the age of 70? This most certainly is pressuring, coercion and manipulating people into receiving the vaccine.
The fear campaign has been running wild since the beginning of the pandemic. According to German lawyer Reiner Fuellmich, the “sole reason the PCR test is used, and used in an incorrect way, is to create enough fear that no one will question the pandemic measures being put into place and simply do as they’re told”.
Dr Joseph Mercola refers to the pandemic as a “casedemic” due to the constant fear around the number of ‘cases’. Cases are not a measure of severity when it comes to a disease. The government and media have continuously created fear around people who are a ‘positive case’, regardless of whether they are infectious or not. This is especially true for Australians returning from overseas.
The TGA’s most recent report on the number of reactions post-vaccination is nothing short of horrifying. Since the beginning of this year, there has been 1 death due to COVID-19. However, during the same period of time, there has been 210 deaths reported after receiving the vaccine, along with 22,031 adverse events.
Given that Australia is on track to record more deaths post-vaccination than from COVID-19 itself, why should we be incentivised into taking an experimental injection that quite clearly does more harm than good?
The vaccine does not provide immunity or prevent transmission. There was no statistical significance in the clinical trials to show that it prevents severe illness, hospitalisation or death. Yet, there have been thousands of adverse events and deaths reported post-vaccine in countries all over the world.
The media needs to stop lying to us, and the government needs to stop the rollout of the vaccine immediately.
Where there is risk, there must be choice. Not incentives.
