There are several other parent’s impact statements which were going to be published tonight, but we felt it important that this story, below, be on its own. It tells a very important tale – of what can happen when governments set out to abuse and discriminate against their own citizens.
Whilst vaccinations, in and of themselves, are known to cause death and permanent injury, the government, in conjunction with the media and the pharmaceutical industry, is leading to the deaths of an unknown number of children and the permanent injury of entire families through its policies. We MUST stand together for the sake of all Australians.
How this vaccination legislation has impacted me, both physically and psychologically.
“Women as oppressed people act out of necessity, not out of choice.”
Today, I buried the remains of my baby that never was, which had begun growing inside of me 7 short weeks ago…. [Read More]
Subject: How NJNP affects our family
We parent three young children – 7, 4 and 2 – all of whom are intentionally not up to date on their vaccinations. This is an educated and deliberate choice.
With this new law coming into play, our family is seriously considering taking my four year old out of Kindy as the full fees will be more than we could afford on our wages. (We could put her into a local private primary school for LESS than I would be paying!)
I would have to stop working and keep her home with me. Which would be less stimulating for her and would have less societal contribution from me. I don’t understand how this is beneficial to our country in the long term? I don’t see how this law benefits society in the big picture. I also believe this law is very discriminatory…. [Read More]

I am writing to share my story about how No Jab No Pay and No Jab No Play have affected the lives of my family.
In 2015 my family and I (husband, self and two daughters aged 3 and 4) lived in our family home on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. He worked full time as a teacher and I worked from home as a business mentor/wed designer.
Upon learning about the new legislation in late 2015 I attempted to find additional work in our local area (Sunshine Coast) to cover the increased cost of childcare for my two daughters who were in care 2-3 days per week. The only work I was able to find did not pay enough to cover Childcare fees, so we had to find an alternative solution…. [Read More]
Our family will lose 2 lots of $ 720 – $ 1440 Family Supplement
Our two girls are 16 and 18 and I was sent a letter from Centrelink, asking them to catch up on 18 years of shots to be up to date with the Immunisation Schedule.
Quote from Centrelink:
“ What you need to do. “
“If your children have missed vaccinations on the National Immunisation Program early childhood vaccination schedule, you will need to talk to your vaccination provider (including general Practitioners) and commence a suitable catch-up schedule for their age.
Children aged under 10 can be vaccinated for free by vaccination providers under the Australian Government’s Immunise Australia Program.
For a limited time, if Bethany and Melanie have missed vaccinations on the National Immunisation Program early childhood vaccination schedule, you can vaccinate them for free after consulting with your vaccination provider.
You need to take this letter with you and show it to your vaccination provider to be eligible.
To assist your vaccination provider in determining a suitable catch-up schedule for your child, please take a copy of your child’s immunisation history ( I do not have a history – as none of my 12 children were ever vaccinated ) statement with you as well.
You may incur a cost for the consultation with your vaccination provider.”
So Centrelink have been instructed to make this “No Jab, no Pay “ law retrospective by 18 years ! Is that legal? I have never heard of a new law being backdated 18 years – surely it should be from now on – the date they passed the legislation?… [Read More]
Hello, I emailed some of my story last year, but I just had to walk away from the whole mess of a situation and concentrate on Christmas, holidays and birthdays to keep my sanity. I’d like to share my story so far for you to pass on to barristers if you so wish. I’ll try to keep it short and to the facts.
Last year, I was struggling as a single parent with 2 kids. I was losing my patience with my youngest, now just turned 3. She was throwing tantrums all day every day. When I say all day it’s no exaggeration. From the time she woke up to the time she went to bed. She’s very sensitive and clingy. The tiniest thing sets her off.
I called Child First asking for help 3 times. (We are in Victoria) I wanted to put her in child care then and there. Wasn’t thinking of this year. Just then and there. I needed a break. She had only been away from me once her entire life…. [Read More]
Attn: Ms. Kym Peake and Mr. Martin Bowles
Dear Sir and Madam,
This letter pertains to the recent changes in legislation regarding vaccination. Writing to you is my last attempt at securing the future of my family. Current law states that you have the authority to grant exemptions, and so I appeal for your assistance.
This matter requires your urgent attention. Please, I request that you comprehend the weight of my circumstance, and I respectfully submit that you conscientiously acknowledge and regard my genuine appeal.
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is XXXXXXXXXXXX. I am a dedicated and loving mother to two boys, aged four and one. I only have my children’s best interests at heart. I have a nursing background, and used to be pro-vaccine until I was adversely affected. My stance is that I do not wish to harm my children as I was harmed. This is reasonable and responsible, given my duty of care. I would be negligent if I were to knowingly put my children at risk…. [Read More]
Please click here for update on legal challenge to No Jab No Pay
The AVN’s page about New South Wales No Jab No Play – which originally took effect from 01 January 2014 – has been updated to incorporate changes effective from 01 January 2016.
Conscientious objection to vaccination is still permitted for the purpose of enrolment in NSW childcare, however the procedures and form by which to access this right changed from January 01 2016. Details are available at the above link.
Note: The New South Wales government has indicated that it intends to conduct a review of the No Jab No Play law some time this year, so it’s possible that it may seek to abolish the right to conscientiously object to vaccination for the purpose of enrolment in NSW childcare.
The following 68 medical journal studies support the link between vaccination and autism. So the next time a doctor or government official tells you that this link is non-existent, please point them to this list of references.
[UPDATE 2018, PLEASE NOTE: many of the links below no longer go to the studies described. We’ll leave them here so you can see the titles and can search for them yourself if you wish (please understand we are volunteers and don’t have unlimited time to check that all links on old blog posts are working).]
