We recently reported on the Western Australia government’s intention to enact a ‘No Jab No Play’ law to prohibit incompletely vaccinated children being enrolled in childcare and early childhood education services. See WA ‘No Jab No Play’ law announced before COAG policy finalised…. [Read More]
The following posts feature discussions and information on the issue of medical freedom.
Pro-vaccine Victorian paediatrician, Dr. Jenny Royle, strongly criticised the Victorian No Jab No Play law during a panel discussion at the 2018 National Immunisation Conference held in Adelaide during June.
I vehemently oppose the Victorian law, No Jab No Play. […] I don’t want people to be disadvantaged by strategies to increase immunisation coverage, and the Victorian law, No Jab No Play, disadvantages children and their families. I think denying a child entry into kindergarten is wrong. I think it’s a disproportionate response to the risk that a fully immunised child has in being in a kindergarten with a very small number of children who aren’t 100% up-to-date with their immunisations, and that risk is disproportionate to the punishment.
Sydney University academic, Associate Professor Julie Leask, made a disturbing revelation at the 2018 National Immunisation Conference held in Adelaide during June.
She claimed that some medically-complex children will require sedation or even general anaesthesia in order to undergo catch-up vaccination, and that if their parents are unwilling to consent, they will be denied family assistance payments.
The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care reported in 2014 that 60 per cent of adult Australians have low health literacy, arguing that they may not be able to effectively exercise their choice or voice when making healthcare decisions.
The Commission defines individual health literacy as the skills, knowledge, motivation and capacity of a person to access, understand, appraise and apply information to make effective decisions about health and health care and take appropriate action…. [Read More]
Not vaccinating your child is not something you take lightly as a parent. The bombardment of vaccine propaganda is everywhere you look and some are scared to even let others know that they don’t vaccinate, because they don’t want their children to face the stigma of going against the crowd.
Going to the doctors can be a battleground where you are berated and belittled for not conforming to the status quo. The simple act of going to the emergency room because your child broke their arm always starts with the question “Is your child up to date on their immunisations?” and you think to yourself – here we go again!… [Read More]
Last week we took the unprecedented step of submitting a complaint of corruption to the Victorian Independent Broad-Based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC).
Our complaint raises serious concerns about the conduct – possibly extending to criminal conduct – of several parties holding high office in Victoria.
The conduct in question relates to certain false and/or misleading submissions made to the Children’s Court in September 2017, by Health Minister Jill Hennessy’s department, as well as public statements made by Families and Children’s Minister, Jenny Mikakos…. [Read More]
Today we have a guest post by Allona from Allona Fit To Parent Network – Allona is organising the Australian leg of the International Revolution for Choice Rally, which will be held in Brisbane on June 2. Welcome Allona!
I didn’t start the war … they did…
I always knew I was never going to vaccinate after having a Hepatitis B vaccine when I was 21 and within months was literally covered with eczema, had severe allergies, autoimmune issues and 7 years of health hell, I was never going to have another vaccine…. [Read More]
A recently published report called Annual Immunisation Coverage Report 2016 authored by the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS), reveals that medical exemption data will be analysed to look for geographical hotspots.
Exploration of children with at least one medical exemption for a vaccine by geographical area, looking for any ‘hotspots’, will be undertaken as part of a separate report. (page 29)

In 2009 in Australia, a citizens’ campaign was launched to silence public criticism of vaccination. This campaign involved an extraordinary variety of techniques to denigrate, harass and censor public vaccine critics. It was unlike anything seen in other scientific controversies, involving everything from alleging beliefs in conspiracy theories to rewriting Wikipedia entries…. [Read More]
