Doctors Challenge Queensland’s COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates. https://www.mightycause.com/story/0hug6f
We are a group of Queensland (Australia)-based medical doctors compelled to legally challenge the Queensland State Government’s ongoing COVID-19 vaccine mandate. We have been prevented from openly discussing our concerns about vaccine effectiveness and safety due to the state of emergency, threats of job loss and de-registration. Recent COVID-19 infection rates show that the vaccines do not prevent COVID-19 transmission or infection. The vaccine mandates are discriminatory, unnecessary, have caused significant societal harm and need to be ended.
We are challenging the vaccine mandate issued by the Chief Health Officer on 12 March 2022 in the Queensland Supreme Court and need your financial assistance with this battle.
Help Doctors Challenge Queensland’s COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates
• Our group of doctors come from General Practice, Medical (Physician) specialties, Infectious Disease Medicine, Pathology, Surgical specialties, Anaesthetics, Paediatrics, Radiology and Psychiatry.
• We are not “anti-vaxxers”- we are anti-mandate. The majority of us are fully vaccinated against traditional vaccine-preventable diseases. In contrast, COVID-19 is not listed as a vaccine preventable disease according to the updated Public Health Act ( https://www.legislation.act.gov.au › DownloadFile › sl › 2000-1 › current › PDF › 2000-1.PDF) and neither has the Chief Health Officer (CHO) of Queensland, Dr John Gerrard, declared it as such under the Act.
• Mandatory COVID-19 vaccines do not prevent transmission or infection of COVID-19, particularly of the latest variants of SARS-CoV-2.
• COVID-19 vaccines continue to be associated with death and injury, as evidenced in global vaccine injury databases (VAERS, TGA DAEN, UK Yellow Card System, European EUDRAVigilance). The Australian Government has created a Covid vaccine death and injury compensation scheme.
• We are asking for QLD’s CHO Dr John Gerrard to articulate the medical and scientific rationale for the ongoing workplace COVID-19 vaccine mandates (https://www.health.qld.gov.au/system-governance/legislation/cho-public-health-directions-under-expanded-public-health-act-powers/workers-in-healthcare-setting) in light of their associated risk and the inability of the vaccines to prevent infection and transmission of COVID-19.
• We believe that by enforcing COVID-19 vaccinations on the public and healthcare workers, the QLD CHO has exceeded his authority and the human rights of Queenslanders may have been breached.
• We are endeavouring to engage in an open and honest debate between doctors and the Qld Government on the latest evidence regarding COVID-19 and the ongoing need for vaccine mandates.

• AHPRA in March 2022, now states that:
“The [AHPRA] Position Statement does not prohibit, restrict, or unduly influence health practitioners from making any statements in relation to concerns regarding the safety or efficacy of COVID-19 vaccinations. It simply requires that those statements be based in science and rely upon the best available evidence.” https://www.ahpra.gov.au/News/2022-03-29-Response-to-Senator-Rennick.aspx
