Starting July 1 of 2012, Australian parents will be stripped of family tax benefits if their child is not fully immunized. Once the immunization alterations take effect next year, families who refuse vaccinations will also be refusing up to $2,100 per child in benefits. It seems that this is just one attempt by the Australian government to force vaccinations on children before potentially making it a federal law.

Forced Vaccinations Should be Illegal

Vaccinations are surrounded with quite a bit of negative history. The flu vaccine alone has been tied to convulsions, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and a number of other negative health effects. Gardasil is also a heavy hitter when it comes to serious health problems, with the vaccine leading to many deaths and thousands of hospitalizations. With that being said, how can a government penalize your for not subjecting yourself to these potential dangers?

This tactic executed by the government is simply a way to push vaccines on the population without making full immunization mandatory by law. Being told you must be fully immunized to receive a benefit is not so different from being told you won’t receive any benefits if you have high cholesterol and don’t take Lipitor. The withholding of benefits tactic is pushed by the idea that not only will millions of kids be protected, but a massive amount of money will be saved in healthcare costs. So why not make pharmaceutical drugs mandatory to keep people “healthy”? The truth is the last thing that Australia and most other nations need is more government regulation.

What is Full Immunization?

You may be wondering what full immunization even is, especially if you are planning to have a child. Here is a schedule provided by the Australian government which shows the vaccination requirements for attaining the Family Tax Benefit Part A Supplement. In order for parents and families to experience various childcare benefits, this schedule should be followed – as far as the government is concerned. According to the schedule, 5-7 vaccines should be administered at the 2, 4, 6, and 12 month mark as well as at 4 years. One vaccine which is administered almost every immunization period is the hepatitis B vaccine. Unfortunately this vaccine has been tied to infant death, multiple sclerosis, and autoimmune disorders.

It is also important to note that the Cochrane Database Review, the gold standard within the evidence-based medical model for determining the effectiveness of common medical interventions, does not lend clear scientific support to the theory that flu vaccines are safe or effective.

Shockingly, these authoritative reviews reveal that there is actually a severe lack of evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of influenza vaccines in children under 2, healthy adults, the elderly, and healthcare workers who care for the elderly.

Some other changes should be known regarding future vaccine immunization changes. Starting July of next year, the immunization check will be changed from two and five years of age to one year of age. In addition, children will be required to be vaccinated against meningococcal C, pneumococcal, and chicken pox, all for the first time starting in July of 2013.

Taking a Stand

This government incentive to get vaccinated is only one small move in the game. It is only until enough people stand up and refuse injection for themselves and their children when the next move will be made. If injection becomes federal law, we will undoubtedly see great opposition. Just as no pharmaceutical drugs should be mandatory for the “health and safety” of the population, no vaccinations should be mandatory either. Everyone should always possess the freedom of choice.

    Thanks for all your efforts that you have put in this

    Australia is a land of extremes. It forces its population to vote. Now it will force them to be immunised, by the back door, but if they don't tow the line, the front door. Oh, and if one should think that by filling in a form as some sort of conscientious objector, all is forgiven – they have your name – you just gave it to them. They won't forget you.

    Australia treats its aboriginal community with disdain. There is a prison colony type attitude amongst those in power, whether it is the police force or the government. When you have sea snakes, salt-water crocodiles, hunting jellyfish, great white sharks, red-backed spiders and tiger snakes, along with this type of authoritative control over the person, what's not to like about the country?

    i see no where in the 1947 referendum which introduced the current health system where it said the Government is responsible for the people's health or were given permission to force people to have medication by what ever means, and to use tax payer money to be pretend doctors. But I do remember a clause that was forced into the question by the Labor party at the time before they would vote for the current health system to be put to referendum and that is "so as not to authorize any civil conscription" so the government cannot compel anyone to do anything to do so against their will is "Civil Conscription" and so unlawful for the servants of the people to either by blackmail or coercion,or force to do anything against their will including with holding payments this is all illegal and only needs to be challenged. The drug companies are very lucky that a majority of the people do not know about Colloidal Silver made by Mineral Health this 100% safe natural biotic, starts to kill in 4 minutes just about any disease you can think of I have it in my home all the time take it every morning not had a illness in 15 years including getting rid of cold sores I use to get, it is great for tooth ache the things I have seen this cure is amazing such as leukemia, bowel infections, stomach ulcers, eye infections does not sting, colds, flues,sinus problems, skin sores,really good on burns etc wouldn't leave home without it.I could not have a vaccine then use colloidal silver because it would kill the vaccine.

    There is a lot of ignorance out there and it is deliberately being encouraged by the government. Vaccinations are not compulsary. You can get all payments including the "immunisation allowance" by getting a "conscientious objector to vaccinations" form from the Medicare office. Just ask for it and make an appointment with a Dr. and ask them to sign it. They cannot refuse. You are not asking their permission, you will need to listen to their telling you the risks of not vaccinating. There has always been a deliberate minimizing of this info to try to trick people into thinking they have no choice.

  • Joe in Missouri

    Great reason to form government: to lord over you and terrorize you into doing what they want. You know what the Declaration of Independence says to do with these jack booted thugs. Oh but I forgot the dumb asses gave up their guns.

  • Nurse

    If you choose not to vaccinate your child don't receive money from our government, it is in their best interest as a government to protect the country and its residents from an outbreak of fatal diseases. Sign your conciseness objectives the truth is there are many people who do not vaccinate their children out of laziness this is the governments focus on this situation. Its your responsibility as parents to make the decision and you are not forced at all and i highly doubt that you ever will be. Stop being paranoid!

    I work in the health care industry i have seen a child suffer and die from a disease that he could have been vaccinated against, i saw the devastation in his parents and i would never wish that on anyone.

    • Jeff

      How sure are you that ALL these children that suffered these disease are not vaccinated? did you each and every history of these kids? Most probably, you're generalizing. You're putting too much faith in something that has no solid proof of it working 100% of the time.

      And talking about best interest, no matter how fascist a law is, the government would always have a reason that is in "the best interest" of everyone. I'm sure that if the government decides that they won't give you your pension when you get old due to everyone's best interest you'd readily agree to it as well.

    • ROBB

      VACCINES: the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System and came up with these surprising numbers linked to the flu vaccine:

      * 2,980 hospitalizations

      * 405 prolonged hospitalizations

      * 260 permanent disabilities

      * 797 life-threatening events

      * 203 deaths

      And those numbers cover just one year – 2007.

      As it stands, children are expected to get 48 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they’re just 6 years old – staring with the first vaccine usually given on the day of birth, By age 18, health officials say they should have gotten a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines. my view is .. once its in.. you can't get it out.. don't stick anything into your child thats not natural.. there are better alternatives like Homeopathy drops .. or getting a strong Immune system from eating natural foods (raw).. or letting your kids play in the dirt .. your body is the best Doctor it knows what to do.. all it needs is nutrients to work with.

      About Polio .. scientific researchers found that the SV40 virus found in those early polio vaccines ..( people who received polio vaccine during 1955-1963) was indeed responsible for higher cancer rates. and they found the virus in a steadily increasing number of rare brain, bone and lung-related tumors, the current polio vaccine is free of SV40 I believe but the Virus is still out there and can be spread other ways. The DPT vaccine is known to cause neurological and brain damage, as well as sudden infant death syndrome. numerous children have died as a result of getting the shot.. it is up to every parent to decide what is best for their family .. but I would do the research first ..not from business interests .. Big Pharma .. just follow the money trail. The Government is very bi-est forcing you by black mail to be part of their mass medication program .. like the Fluoride poison in your drinking water .. this is also poisoning our babies and disrupts them from growing to a healthy adult.

      About the (Bird Flu, Spanish Flu, etc) there are herbs and plants that will stop this pandemic, and it did ..I have it growing in my garden. Also the latest on the MMR vaccine this week says it can cause a blood disorder, an immune system malfunction that destroys the body's own blood platelets, as well .. it is proven that it does cause Autism in many children..

      As far as I am concerned medical doctors are drug pushers.. and are responsible for more deaths in the world than any other cause.. in the USA 198,000 died in one year from misdiagnosed and wrong prescriptions …etc they do not study health, nutrients and the natural healing processes .. and the cause for ALL DISEASEs .. "ACIDOSES"

        I used ctrl+f to see if the article menioned autism so I could give out and I found this. There is no evidence AT ALL that the MMR causes autism. The orignal study that suggested that was suggested it used fake and manipulated data and an overwhelming number of responses say otherwise. Big Pharma is evil, no doubt about it, but we have to be educated and read the research ourselves if we want to be taken seriously.

    • Randy

      Have you seen the devastation of the parents who lost a child because they gave gave their child vaccinations?

      Why do the drug companies continue to put mercury in vaccinations? Mercury may be the most toxic substance on the planet!

      I'm proud to say that my children have never had a vaccination and have been very healthy and are now adults – they lived and thrived without them.

      • Anonymous

        Have you heard of Botulinum toxin? Strongest neurotoxin on the planet. However, it is more commonly known as botox.

        Also, mister/miss, the only reason that you can avoid vaccinating children today without much danger is because diseases such as polio, measles and tetanus are almost completely extinct in developed countries. How? Thanks to vaccination efforts. You are a spoiled hypocrite.

        • Bugs

          Vaccines now and vaccines when they first came out were two entirely different animals. There were no greedy corporations trying to make profits at all costs, including the lives of children!

          Did you know that some of the vaccines today are still using the same bugs from the 50s and 60s? IF you know anything about this kind of science, you know that these bugs mutate rather rapidly, so to not change them in 50 years is absolute stupidity! And the vaccines back then did not have mercury and aluminum in them. They weren't poisonous!

          It was a very different world 50 years ago. I know, because I was alive back then and got my vaccines FREE. We stood in line at school and got them where I lived and no one paid for them out of pocket. It was all government sponsored, especially for polio, regardless of income.

          But to use those same bugs from 50 yrs ago is absolute insanity.

          And then there is the German study that proved that unvaccinated children were 500% more likely to develop disease or serious allergy problems.

          Of course, this study never made the US mainstream media.

          So your claims aren't all that you say they are.

  • Brad

    This government will get a warm welcome at the gates of he'll. They will force me to vaccinate my children over their dead body….. We have to make sure we vote these evil bastards out

  • Anonymous

    Vaccination is fraud. It does not work. Virus and bacteria do not cause disease > it's the other way around > disease .. causes virus and bacteria . Virus and bacteria are around us all the time waiting for the 'opportunity' to feed off of existing disease conditions .

    If virus and bacteria actually were the cause of disease we would all be DEAD !! People cause there own disease mainly through poor diet and lifestyle .

  • david

    This is what happens in countries where the people sit by and let their governments dictate. If the people of Australia, and the free world, want this bullying tactic to fail we had all better stick together and refuse this obscene law even if it means monetary loss and even arrest… bully only understands one thing, strength, and there is strength in numbers.

    • david

      In all fairness, after checking the govt. link provided…. as of today they are allowing consciencious objectors to opt out. Please read the wording carefully. Of course, the thin edge of the wedge is in the door and quite probably it's just a matter of time before it becomes fully manditory under law. Just want to keep things accurate on the matter.

      • Kelly

        Hi David, I havn't read the full article, are you saying that if you have signed the consciencious objection form you will be 'seen' by the government as exempt from losing your Family Tax benefits. My children are unimmunised, but we have signed the form – Still wouldn't make me vaccinate – I'd get another job, before I risked my children.

  • D. Mocracy

    At least Julia Gillard is saving us from carbon dioxide. And now she is going to save us from germs. We should be so pleased that the GOVERNMENT is going to save us from everything and we do not have to worry or think at all.

    lets line up the people responsible for this crap and give them the vaccines first and their families.

    • Anonymous

      Sure, why not?

  • rachel

    The elected leader over thrown and no one even whimpers, just shut up and take your vaccination.

  • Anonymous

    They can take there tax break and vaccines and shove them up there arse, then go to hell from where they are from.

    • char

      could not agree more!

  • Anonymous

    Let's see whether or not, as in the past, the nurses, airline officers, doctors, firefighters, police, etc who, in recent pushes, were in the front line of this will again rise up and out, resist and refuse to take the vaccination. So why would you wish it on someone else, contaminated shots? Let's not be hypocrites here folks. That was, worldwide estimated in the tens or hundreds of thousands of public servants, 75% or huge numbers first in line to lock, rather than take shots in, arms, if memory serves. Now slow death machines are targeting the early childhood. Kind of makes you think of something, tells you something about injections, doesn't it?
