As you probably are aware, Melbourne GP, Dr John Piesse, is facing prosecution and deregistration for the ‘crime’ of supporting parental vaccination choice and writing medical exemption forms for families whose children are at risk of serious reactions or death from vaccines. 

Below is an article Dr Piesse has submitted to the Melbourne Age. It is reprinted with his permission.

The writer has become embroiled in the controversy about whether or not it is wise to vaccinate.

I have been encountering cases of vaccine injury for over 40 years. In June it was a happy, healthy nearly 5-year-old whose parents were required to put her on a catch-up schedule, in order to get her into kindergarten. She won’t be going to kinder. She’s in a wheel-chair, brain-damaged. Her life ruined. Then came a friend’s father who died after a flu vaccine, and last week a 4 year old boy, made autistic by a catch-up schedule.

In 1988, the US National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created. It has paid out over US$3.5 billion to the vaccine-injured. The NVICP was set up to protect vaccine manufacturers from ruinous costs of litigation by vaccine-damaged people. It was deemed preferable to have ‘unavoidably unsafe’ vaccines than no vaccines. Unfortunately the protection provided to vaccine manufacturers also reduced incentives to develop safer vaccines in USA.

Politicians and doctors assure us that vaccinations are very safe although less than 5% of vaccine reactions are reported. Most are passed off as ‘just a coincidence’.

Vaccines contain health-damaging ingredients, not the least aluminium – a known neurotoxin implicated along with mercury, in brain damage as in autism, developmental delay, ADHD, and learning difficulties. Aluminium is also a powerful promoter of auto-immune diseases. Vaccines can claim to be mercury-free if their mercury content is below a still-toxic threshold. Most influenza vaccines contain mercury – also a neurotoxin. In addition, polysorbate 80 in vaccines increases the permeability of the blood brain barrier and potentiates the risks of these neurotoxins. The known presence of carcinogenic viruses in the MMR vaccine, has been covered-up. Vaccines also contain formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.

Proof of vaccine safety requires rigorously conducted clinical studies comparing vaccinated versus truly unvaccinated children for health outcomes. Are there any such studies that confirm that vaccinated children are not worse-off than those unvaccinated? No. There are none. Hence, child vaccines are unproven for safety – an inconvenient truth for a profession that prides itself on being scientific.

One analysis indicated that national infant mortality rates were proportional to the number of vaccine doses (Miller NZ 2011), contradictory to the claim that ‘vaccination saves lives’.

From mid-2015, parents who wished not to vaccinate their children, started to converge on my practice seeking assistance with gaining exemption from the penalties directed at non-vaccinators by the No Jab No Pay and No Jab No Play Legislation.

Analysis up to the end of 2016 of parent’s reasons for not vaccinating, indicated that 64% of 166 parents knew of vaccine-damaged individuals in their own family. The study of ‘Adversomics’ confirms polymorphic and genomic susceptibility factors common to vaccine–damaged individuals and their families. (Poland GA 2015). 40% of unvaccinated children had pre-existing health problems that parents considered would make them more at risk of harm from vaccines. 60% of unvaccinated children were very healthy, but only 6% of the vaccinated children. There were no cases of autism in 212 unvaccinated children, but 8 autism cases in the 50 vaccinated children (16%), and 36% with ASD, compared to 1.4% in the unvaccinated.

As yet there are no large-scale vaccinated versus truly unvaccinated studies of the sort needed prove that vaccines do or do not cause autism.

So where does the widespread belief that vaccines do not cause autism derive? In a nutshell: from an over-whelming quantity of ‘manufactured science’ of low quality, scientific fraud, and ignoring !1 evidence supporting causality. Few doctors and politicians are aware of the pivotal scientific fraud committed in the US Centers for Disease Control. A study of the MMR vaccine in black American babies showed a 2.5 fold higher level of autism in babies given the MMR vaccine at 12 months of age compared to 3 years. The CDC refused to publish these findings but manipulated the data to disguise the undeniable association found. The fraudulent data was then published (DeStefano F 2004 ) and promoted as the final statement on the question. Thereafter the official line was that vaccination did not cause autism. 5000 vaccine-damaged children had their applications in the Vaccine Court for compensation quashed after this deception. But whistle-blower William Thompson released the true unabridged data which was published briefly until pressure from the CDC forced its retraction (Hooker B 2014)

A recent study of home-school students showed a 6.6 fold increase in neurodevelopmental disorders in the vaccinated group over the unvaccinated. Autism spectrum disorders were 4.7 times more prevalent in the vaccinated children (Mawson AR 2017).

So long as doctors and governments continue to be hood-winked into believing that vaccines do not cause autism, no action will be taken to stop the alarming surge in the autism epidemic. A tragedy that need not happen if we demand good science. and safe vaccines.

    keep going and don’t give up and reach out and request support at each step of the way. You are not alone

  2. Elizabeth De Nardis says:

    Education, Information and individual assessment, not blinded mass hysteria sponsored by chemical pharmaceutical companies whose only interest is money. My son’s long term illness unable to be identified by many specialists was simply diagnosed and treated by Dr Piesse many years ago. Surely we must be allowed to investigate and make up our own minds about alternative opinions about what is best for our children. Stay true to your informed beliefs Dr Piesse.

  3. Glenn says:

    Dr Piesse helped me write a letter to the Authorities to get an exception for my children. My kids had terrible reactions to vaccinations and i won’t go near them. I feel lucky to have them safe and healthy after i thought for a time(2 days!), they were in real trouble.

    Of course the application was denied and as a struggling single parent the decision costs me around $10,000 a year in lost family tax help.

    They banned my kid from Kinda and the whip is “still cracking”. As time goes on things will get worse if choose to use your own judgment on the matter. School next? Jail after that? I have been called an irresponsible parent by politicians for choosing to not put poisons into my children’s arms that i know make them very sick.

    Dr Piesse is a good man and this is a “stitch up”.

    Please do watch the German docu translated into English ‘Wir impfen nicht’
    or the series ‘The truth about vaccines’ and ‘Vaccines revealed’!

  5. Mignon says:

    We live in times of medical fascism!!
    Please study this list of ingredients and ask yourself how any of these will contribute to immunity?!? My God, if this deliberate disinformation through the sponsored media only could be stopped and the sheeple would realise the degree of brainwashing they are exposed to daily… So far the internet is the only way to gain knowledge away from check-book science!
    I wrote several letters to this government begging to look into the science- they hide behind hollow phrases and an ignorance that beggars belief. Well paid by lobbyists I guess!?

  6. Ms Kern says:

    I truly applaude your courage, Dr. Piesse. Yes, this is now becoming the world wide trend, to criminalize those who demonstrate true concern for our planet and our health.
    Grade 4 girls are basically force-vaccinated with the HPV vaccine at schools and now Truvada is given to students as HIV prevention, willing guinea pigs for big pharma!

  7. David Champion says:

    Nothing is ever 100% safe, John, not even breathing! I’d like to ask you how many children you know of who have died from Diphtheria, Typhoid, Measles, Smallpox, Polio, whooping cough, or any other diseases immunisation have protected us from? Zero, I would guess. Look up childhood mortality in the times before immunisation for a reality check!

    • Markus says:

      Many of those diseases levelled out long before vaccines became the norm. Because of better hygiene, infrastructure and health care in western socities. I’ll refer to Humphries & Bystrianyks book “Dissolving illusions…” for data and graphs.

      I’m not antivaccine, but skeptical of Big Pharma, who lobbies and makes vaccines. Their bottom-line interest, as private enterprises, is revenue.

    • Crypto Tonic says:

      These where all in decline BEFORE vaccines where introduced.

      We can all thank better nutrition and sanitation for the decline, not the fraud of vaccines.

      First do no harm, remember that one? If the treatment kills and injures the healthy to save the sick, we have a very sick system.

    • A Strub says:

      This is not about truth, as I guess neither you or me can tell. We have opinions and gather facts that support our way to see the world.
      But it is essentially about that you are forced more and more through legislation and regulation into doing things that you wish not to do with your or your children’s body. Take a step back: if personal freedom and choice would disregarded like this anywhere else, e.g. China, north Korea, Russia etc, many would talk about injustice, lack of freedom, and unreasonable force.

  9. ILIJA Glisic says:

    What a true champion, Dr Piesse! It’s a shame that all doctors don’t have the real interests of their patients at heart, as Dr Piesse has, and ensure that they bring themselves across the scientific information that exists about the safety or otherwise of vaccinations. My own doctor has told me about similar experiences she has had with children becoming vegetable cases after receiving vaccines. And our politicians, what a collection of useless individuals we have in government and opposition who listen to medical eminence or medical dogma and act on that rather than medical evidence. And both lots treat those who seek the truth about vaccines as sceptics or vaccine deniers.
    Wish the Doc all the very, very best!!!

    • lesley333 says:

      Truth is the new “hate” speech. Unfortunately anyone who does their own research and gains knowledge is treated like a lunatic, whilst the ignorant, deceiving, corrupt take the high moral ground.
      We live in a sad absurd society today.
      People you need to take more interest in candidates wishing to represent you in the political arena. Check their credentials, make sure they bring something of value to the system, NOT ideologues, just looking for a job or career.

  10. Richard Nakane Emmerson says:

    Interesting. Could you possibly include a reference list?
    Are these figures all for Australia?
    Is the content of vaccines different between countries?
    Are the harmful ingredients necessary or could safe substitutes be used?
    If safe substitutes were used, would you then feel that vaccination is acceptable?

    • AVN admin says:

      The source of the figures are noted in the blog post. If you have an issue with any of them, please state your concerns and why you believe them not to be correct.

      Vaccines that are used in Australia are the same as the vaccines used in most developed countries and produced by the same multinational corporations. Most of them are now produced under contract in China where there are no controls and no independent oversight.

      The question about harmful ingredients should be asked of the regulators at the department of [sic] health and ATAGI. Since we KNOW these ingredients to be harmful, and vaccines, unlike most other drugs, target the healthy rather than those who are ill, shouldn’t the precautionary principle states that these products must be shown to be safe before they are used and most especially, before those who choose not to use them are discriminated against?

      For me personally, I would like to see some evidence or proof that vaccines actually work. The theory behind vaccination is that by causing the body to produce antibodies, we are also creating immunity to specific diseases. The problem is that it has been demonstrated conclusively since the 1930s and 1940s that this is not the case. High levels of so-called protective antibodies do not indicate immunity – they simply show that someone has been exposed to a pathogen.

      I will ask a question of you now:

      If vaccines have never been shown to be either safe or effective, is it moral, ethical or scientifically sound to discriminate against those who refuse to use them?

  11. Kel says:

    Well done Doctor Piesse. Hopefully Govts and the sheeple of the world will wake up before humanity destroys itself.

  12. Ms Ted says:

    Dr Piesse is a real Hero Those bad people (who try to set him up) will end up in Hell for suppressing real science and the truth about the impact of vaccines on our children How poison in vaccines can be good for babies, children, aged people or anyone else?
    Eg Acetone, alcohol, anhydrous lactose, castor oil, cellulose acetate phthalate, dextrose, D-fructose, D-mannose, FD&C Yellow #6 aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, human serum albumin, magnesium stearate, micro crystalline cellulose, plasdone C, Polacrilin potassium, potassium phosphate, sodium bicarbonate, sucrose…it’s only small part of it

  13. Theodore says:

    A wonderful person, who just happens to be an honest doctor! Thank you for all you do, dr Piesse! Hang in there!

  14. robert temple says:

    Vaxxers have a common pronouncement: anti-vaxxers put everyone at risk of acquiring a disease which COULD cause discomfort, suffering, or death. Then each of them list the stats, which do not make sense. If vaxxers vaccinate, then what is their problem? Since they are immune, they have no reason to worry.

    I propose they get off telling other people what to do.

    A year ago, I decided that vaxxers retain the right to refuse, based on the capacity to decide which medications are beneficial and which are not. No one has the right to force vaccines on any one else. Present mandates show clearly no respect for the individual rights of each man and woman. No State mandating vaccinations for children has standing where protection of life is an issue. Indeed, no vaxxer either.

    Vaxxers are the worst since they (1) refuse to allow this right to be discussed, (2) they condemn any one standing up for themselves and their children as paranoid phobics, and (3) they assume anti-vaxxers have not read all the relevant material, then (4) promote the smoke screen stats around autism. State workers and “yes” men are second in line.

    The issue does not depend on cases of autism, nor cases of infection caused by some outbreak at Disneyland. The main issue is the right to refuse forced medical injections. Vaxxers complain about becoming ill because others did not vaccinate. Certainly, if they are so concerned then they should take physical measures to protect themselves. As a poet wrote, “Avoid the reeking herd, Shun the polluted flock …”

    In CA, the problem persists. Children must be vaccinated to attend school. They are innocent to the deceptions involved with pharmaceutical corporations, scientific studies paid for by the companies producing the medications under study. FDA shuffles the paperwork, without independent study. So lawyers have to pull Corporate lawyers into court. Think Crestor, Xarelto, Pradaxa, Eliquis, Januvia, Lipitor, Vioxx, Paxil, Cipro, Levaquin, and Avelox … to name only a few.

    In one corner Billions in potential profit, while in another people who refuse injections against their will. Will science present a solution? No. Vaxxers march ahead.

    Dr. John Piesse – you honor your profession as a healer and honor yourself as a man willing to stand up for what is right – the life of children.

    God Bless You,
