Dear Ms Dorey,
The Science Party’s position on vaccines is outlined below and is also published here: https://www.scienceparty.org.au/children_deserve_vaccines.
The overwhelming scientific evidence indicates that vaccines are safe and effective. Vaccination has eradicated smallpox and rinderpest, and immensely reduced the burden of dozens of other diseases.
Anti-vaccination groups often point out that deaths from measles and polio were in decline when vaccines for these disease were introduced. Indeed, supportive care and technology such as the iron lung allowed many children to survive these diseases. Some of these survivors suffered permanent effects like sight or hearing loss, or paralysis. Vaccination protects children from these risks…. [Read More]
Dear Ms Dorey
I apologise on behalf of the Party for not responding to your email earlier.
Thank you for the inquiry regarding The Veterans Party policy regarding childhood immunisations. The Party recognizes that this is a divisive issue among broader communities across the nation.
The Party gives a clear indication of our stance as described in our Policy 11.23 –
Childhood Immunisations: ADVP believes that failing to immunise your child not only risks the child but also risks every other child within which they come in contact. ADVP supports policy that requires all children attending schooling or childcare be fully immunised. ADVP supports Government denying Carer’s Allowance to parents who decline to immunise their children without a valid reason as determined by a qualified medical practitioner.
The ADVP appreciate your contact requesting us to clarify our position. I am available for any further inquiries you or your group may have in the future.

Compulsory vaccinations is a divisive issue indeed. As your footnote states, “Every issue has two sides”. We have a number of our own candidates and staff with opposing views on this vex issue.
At this stage Australian Christians has not settled on a position on compulsory vaccinations. We recommend that people continue to make their own informed choices, weighing the benefits and costs carefully.
Thanks for including us in the discussion.

The Australian Country Party does not have a dedicated policy regarding vaccination, however if I were to provide feedback to my members I would have to advise them of how many diseases we have eliminated from our population as a result of vaccinations.
There is a risk/reward issue which may be your motivation but I would say that the overwhelming benefits outweigh risks.

Vaccinations are also an important pillar of preventative practice, with the available science clearly showing that compromised herd immunity represents a threat to the entire population. Efforts at harm prevention are reckoned to be particularly effective at reducing the likelihood of chronic illness, which often require highly complex treatment regimens.
Undertake measures which ensure best-value for money in the health system
- Provide financial encouragement for parents to vaccinate their children
Dear Ms Dorey,
The Citizens Electoral Council of Australia supports the principle of vaccination against preventable diseases. At the same time we are very aware of the influence by major pharmaceutical companies that may affect government decisions on the matter.
Political and moral decisions are being made under an overarching agenda driven by corporate greed to bring about population reduction–depopulation. Some might say vaccinations help that cause, while others, like the CEC, say we should know who is behind the depopulation agenda, and how they permeate the minds of the population with fear to drive it, and be very wary of opening the door to diseases that were once virtually eradicated.
Whilst parents should have the final say in regards to their own children they also have a responsibility to the wider community.
I have attached 2016 Senate Election flyer for the election which highlights the seven key issues that will determine the future for our children and grandchildren. We have to make sure our government acts (vaccinates) to protect the people and the economy, with bank separation as we outline, before the next crisis erupts.

We do not have a policy on this Vaccination issue as yet, however our stand is indicated below.
“our members and supporters believe that a parent must always have the final say in health and other parenting issues when it comes to their own children. this single issue will be a game-changer for many of them”.
WE AGREE WITH THIS.
“No Pay/No Play legislation” …………..
THIS IS BRIBERY AND INSULTING TO RESPONSIBLY CARING PARENTS- WE WOULD NOT SUPPORT IT
“the right of Australian citizens to make free and informed health choices for their families without financial penalty or discrimination.”
WE WOULD SUPPORT THIS VIEW.
We Are not anti vaccination as we believe they have a place in protecting us from harmful diseases. But the whole vaccination system needs investigation and [we] would support more reliable scientific information being accessible to the public and accountability from the medical profession to accept alternative natural measures as also being a viable source of protection for our children.
