AUSTRALIA, March 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt was hospitalized with a severe case of cellulitis just two days after receiving his first dose of the abortion-tainted AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine.

While the definitive claim that his condition is “not considered to be related to the vaccine” was made almost immediately by Hunt’s office, medical research into cellulitis following various vaccines including Pneumococcal, Influenza, and DTaP is well-documented.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has sought to downplay concerns about Hunt’s health, telling the press, “He'll be fine by next week, he'll be back up on his feet.”

Further compounding Australians’ doubts in their government’s messaging around the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is a recent crackdown on doctors and other healthcare professionals who dissent from the $24 million campaign to convince all Australians to take the jab by October this year.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) released a joint statement warning healthcare practitioners that they risk regulatory action if they share supposedly false or deceptive information with patients – or on social media – that could undermine the national vaccination program as the AstraZeneca vaccine rollout begins.

The AHPRA is the Australian Government’s medical watchdog, encompassing 15 national healthcare boards including the medical, nursing and midwifery, pharmacy, dental, chiropractic, Chinese medicine, paramedicine, and osteopathy boards of Australia – all of whom supported this directive.

“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.

An AHPRA spokeswoman said in a statement to the Herald that practitioners who breached national boards’ codes of conduct might be subject to investigation and other action on a case-by-case basis.

100,000 Australians have now been vaccinated, mostly with the Pfizer/BioNTech shot, but as Melbourne-produced AstraZeneca vaccines begin their rollout on March 22 they will become the “workhorse” that most Aussies receive, according to chief health bureaucrat Professor Brendan Murphy.

At the same time several European countries are banning batches of AstraZeneca following a host of blood clot-related adverse events.

Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.

Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]

This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.

People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.

Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.

So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.

Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.

Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.

We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.
