AUSTRALIA: Directive issued warning healthcare practitioners they risk regulatory action if spout false or deceptive misinformation undermining the national vaccination rollout

From the C-o-v-1-9 V@cc Reacts and News New Zealand Facebook page

Australian Doctors, nurses and pharmacists who spread COVID anti-vaccination claims will face harsh penalties, including being stripped of their ability to practise, by the medical watchdog. The national medical boards and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) released a joint directive warning healthcare practitioners that they risk regulatory action if they spout false or deceptive misinformation to patients or on social media that could undermine the national vaccination program as the AstraZeneca vaccine rollout begins.There is no place for anti-vaccination messages in professional health practice, and any promotion of anti-vaccination claims including on social media, and advertising may be subject to regulatory action,” spokesman for the medical boards and Pharmacy Board chairman Brett Simmonds said.I ask myself, “what constitutes anti vaccine messages”? Does this law prevent medical personnel from participating in a genuine “informed consent” process in their practice? If they have concerns about the vaccine and their patient asks them questions….does this law prohibit them from sharing their medical concerns? Can they discuss with patients anything relating to…

*there is no long term safety data
*clinical trials are continuing until 2023…but vaccines are being administered globally “in the meantime”.
*serious injuries and deaths occurring within hours or a few days of receiving the vaccination are mounting.
*the mRNA delivery platform has never been used in human vaccination before.
*there are questions and concerns about the potential for Antibody Dependent Enhancement (a worsening of disease when you are exposed to the wild virus having had the vaccine).
*there is NO SAFETY data for use during pregnancy, auto immune disease, breast feeding.
*there is NO SAFETY data looking at any potential risk of vaccination in combination with pre existing pharmaceuticals being taken.
*there is NO DATA confirming that this vaccine will stop you from contracting Covid 19, OR TRANSMITTING it to someone else.

How do you do your job to “first do no harm”, and remain open, honest and able to discuss and advise on an individual “risk/benefit” basis, when you are gagged and your medical license is threatened, for doing so. This is serious and dangerous.

Vaccine Skepticism In Australia is Now Punishable By 10 Years In Jail! With your right to choose gone, how more police-state can you get?

Comment: if you think NZ won’t do this read this ‘thin end of the wedge’ from Labour last year:

“One of the freedoms enjoyed by “extremist” religious people in New Zealand may be curtailed under a Labour-led Government.Health spokesman and Dunedin North MP David Clark said he would support New Zealand following Australia and banning unvaccinated children from child care centres and preschools.”

Australia is saying folk will be prosecuted even for  … expressing doubt about the effectiveness of vaccinations or urging further studies into vaccine safety.” That should ring loud warning bells.. a nation that does not allow further safety studies is blind indeed. A slippery slope to be on.

Australian nurses and midwives who dare to speak out against the dangers of vaccinations on social media or in person will be prosecuted, the Australian government has warned, urging members of the public to report vaccine skeptics to the authorities.

Medical professional face a jail sentence of 10 years for expressing doubt about the effectiveness of vaccinations or urging further studies into vaccine safety. Opponents of the new law claim free speech and scientific integrity is under attack in Australia by a government that has been bought and paid for by Big Pharma.

With no exceptions we expect all registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives to use the best available evidence in making practice decisions. This includes providing information to the public about public health issues,” Chair of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Dr. Lynette Cusack said in a statement.

The NMBA has called on Australians to report nurses or midwives promoting anti-vaccination – ‘anti-vaxxers’, as they’re known colloquially.

The board will consider whether the nurse or midwife has breached their professional obligations and will treat these matters seriously,” the statement said.

Any published anti-vaccination material and/or advice which is false, misleading or deceptive which is being distributed by a registered nurse, enrolled nurse or midwife (including via social media) may also constitute a summary offence under the National Law and could result in prosecution by AHPRA [Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.]”

One of the strongest supporters of vaccination, Victoria’s Health Minister Jill Hennessy, has no time for parents who believe vaccine safety requires further study in order to ensure they are safe for our children.

Describing vaccine skeptics as “brain dead sheep“, the politician said:

They are an organized movement, largely stemming from the United State of America that are hell bent on misleading parents that vaccinations are unsafe.

“That’s a dangerous message and one I’m going to continue to fight. Vaccinations save lives,” the minister concluded.  READ MORE
