UPDATE VICTORIA – COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination (Workers) Directions (No 3)

RDA now has in-house legal counsel so we’ll be able to review legislation in more depth to keep you all informed. This brings RDA to new heights and we’re very pleased to be able to offer legally sound clarification from now on.

A message from our counsel;

In the last 72 hours, the Victorian Government has issued two (2) directions under Section 200 of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 (Vic).

Each of these directions replaced the former direction that was in place that dealt with mandatory medical procedures being a condition of employment throughout the State of Victoria. As it currently stands as at 7pm, Saturday, 16 October 2021, COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination (Workers) Directions (No 3) commenced at 11:59:00pm on 15 October 2021 and end at 11:59:00pm on 21 October 2021.

RDA is working as quickly as possible to review these updated directions and provide clear and concise information on the contents of the most recent directions to both employers and employees across Victoria so they can navigate through these ever-changing workplace requirements. It is important to remember that prior to any discriminatory action being taken on the basis of these directions, the directions must be disseminated to relevant employers and employees and time must be given for the directions to be read, understood, and implemented.

Please stay tuned for our update and in the meantime, you can find the recently released directions at the following website:

  1. Australian National Review shows you just some of the extensive Conflicts of Interest
    Same problem here in Australia – allegedly systemic and widespread conflicts of interest – the extent is horrendous and once the Australian people learn the full extent and the truth you will be horrified remember mainstream media is also allegedly DEEPLY conflicted and the global governments hijacked the internet ‘to censor your researching’ to ensure you found what they wanted you to see and I am so sorry that many of you innocently believe the alleged filthy lying bastards – this is absolutely appalling and remember part of uniting to fight to get back our freedoms and democracy is join Reignite Democracy Australia, Australians say no (Australians against mandatory vaccination) and join Craig Kelly and Clive Palmer at United Australia Party to restore our democracy and freedoms and don’t ever fall for trusting liberals, labor and greens ever again – we never want to see
    Democracy Destroyers ever again (allegedly).

    1. Hi everyone, I can confirm what Mark is referring to is true I have downloaded a copy of The WA Public Health Act sec. 197&198 outlines what Mark is referring to.

  2. The new direction authorises (justifies) in my case, allowing me to work ,”IF” the staff shortages are as desperate as publicised in media. Quite telling really. Didn’t see direction 1 and 2 , this latest order cover most workers, with the exception of judges etc. Interesting. Thanks RDA.

  3. STUNNING ADMISSION: We’ll Scrap Vaccine Mandate If We Can’t Enforce It
    By David Hiscox
    From XYZ
    12 October, 2021
    Brett Sutton gives the distinct impression that he is just happy to be raking in a pay check. Officially he is the Chief Health Officer of Victoria whose “directions” have caused Melbourne to become the most locked down city in the world.
    In reality he is Bill Gates’ puppet via his sister in law.
    He says what he is told to say so that Daniel Andrews can use the excuse “We’re just following CHO directions” when really, that is what they wanted to do all along. This facade becomes apparent whenever Sutton has to answer a question or explain policy.
    Watch Video ……
    Journalist: “On the vaccine passport trial, a lot of businesses are starting to get a bit of pushback from patrons, there’s one in particular in Warnambool fielding calls from vaccinated haters, so what’s your advice on how businesses can better manage?”
    Sutton: “The trial in part is to see how this goes. Um, the message is clear (gives sheepish laugh), we want settings to open up safely and the increased caps for those settings are absolutely because there is an expectation that fully vaccinated people will be the ones attending.
    “That makes it safer and it makes it much more able to have a bigger patron cap in those settings. I think businesses want that increased patron cap and I think they’ll want to do whatever they can to ensure that there’s compliance so that they can safely operate with those greater caps.
    “There’ll be some tensions but let’s see how the trial plays out in terms of how compliance and enforcement works in those settings, and the ease with which those vaccine passports or vaccine certificates work in those settings.”
    He should have stopped one paragraph earlier but as I said, he’s stopped caring.
    The vaccine mandate is a trial.
    They are monitoring how people respond to the trial and will adjust settings accordingly.
    If people go along with it they will ramp up the “settings” because they can, ie they will experiment to see what else they can force us to do.
    However, if people don’t comply they will scale the “settings” back because they have to.
    Daniel Andrews has already backflipped on his vow to allow no exemptions to the vaccine mandate, because he needs enough people in law enforcement and the judicial system to be willing to enforce it. This means he has already backed down once when challenged.
    The government is making business owners responsible for enforcing the vaccine mandate as a way of deflecting responsibility for its own tyranny. In doing so it risks the possibility that the people it requires for its tyranny to work – business owners to enforce it and the public to accept it – won’t behave as they have calculated.
    It’s like the ferry scene from The Dark Knight where The Joker expects ordinary people to blow up criminals in a vain attempt to save their own skins. It’s a nationwide prisoner’s dilemma. If nobody complies with the vaccine mandate they can’t make it work.
    Psychopaths never expect simple humanity to win out.

    AHPRA malfeasant, arrogant, complacent
    MEAG May 3, 2018
    Australia’s own medical regulator AHPRA — Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
    A regulator that can’t even regulate itself.
    The true meaning of malfeasance is AHPRA — corrupt to the core | devious and inept | runs amok with power and self-importance | answerable to no one | operates in clandestine | lying is its modus operandi | run by staff sacked from Health Departments…

    AHPRA has not got a clue what investigation means. Evidence and facts? They don’t worry about that. They manufacture it and stick to it. Woe betide challenging it.
    Just take a look at the AHPRA state and territory branches and who they are run by.
    Yes, the old heads of state medical boards. They just slithered into positions with the new national medical board for further self-aggrandizement and same old misinformation and obfuscation aka cover-ups continue. A medical mafia.
    The old saying: Fish rots from the head down.
    AHPRA CEO is ex-FED Department of Health and ex-NHS.
    This is why AHPRA is as it is.
    Would not have a clue what safety and quality is for there is no safety and there is no quality when it comes to AHPRA.
    Hundreds of emails daily fill our inbox of AHPRA’s malfeasance from people across the nation who don’t know each other but they’re all saying the same thing.
    AHPRA is inept beyond belief.
    What is AHPRA for if it cannot investigate and regulate? Why aren’t bad apples weeded out? From AHPRA’s ranks as well.
    Nothing short of a royal commission is needed to look into AHPRA’s misconduct.
    You think the banks are bad? AHPRA is worse, truly.

    BHP – ‘Informed Consent’, Conflicts of Interest and Mandated Cov-19 Injections
    By Elizabeth Hart
    15 October, 2021
    For the attention of:
    Mr Edgar Basto
    President BHP Minerals Australia
    Mr Basto, The Australian reports that BHP has declared “it will shut off access to its mines and offices to staff that are not full vaccinated against Covid-19 by February”, with BHP telling its entire workforce to “get jabbed as soon as they can”. See: BHP to shut door on staff without Covid-19 vaccination, 8 October 2021.
    BHP is coercing its employees to submit to COVID-19 injections, denying them their right to valid informed consent before vaccination. The health practitioners undertaking this medical intervention must be aware of this fact and they are in a seriously conflicted position.
    Mr Basto, in my previous email to you, (1 September 2021), I note there is clearly a conflict with the Morrison and State Government’s aggressive COVID-19 injection rollout, and health practitioners’ ethical responsibility to obtain informed consent before this medical intervention, i.e. without coercion. I informed you that I’ve raised this matter with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), pursuing accountability for the failure to properly obtain valid informed consent before COVID-19 injections.
    I have now received a response from AHPRA, with Amanda Watson, the National Complaints Manager ofAHPRA, confirming:
    Practitioners have an obligation to obtain informed consent for treatment, including vaccination. Informed consent is a person’s voluntary decision about health care that is made with knowledge and understanding of the benefits and risks involved.
    (My emphasis) Copy of letter from AHPRA attached, dated 20 September 2021.
    Mr Basto, I suggest this confirmation from AHPRA casts a very big question mark over BHP’s coercive COVID-19 vaccination campaign against BHP staff, as BHP staff are not being allowed to make a ‘voluntary decision about health care that is made with knowledge and understanding of the benefits and risks involved’.
    It does not make sense that BHP insists its workers be injected with COVID-19 injections against this generally mild to moderate respiratory illness, with fast-tracked experimental ‘leaky vaccines’ which apparently don’t prevent infection nor transmission, and which therefore provide questionable ‘immunity’.
    Mr Basto, are you working in tandem with Michael Miller, Executive Chairman of News Corp Australia, who has personally called upon Australia’s business leaders and owners to champion the COVID-19 vaccination rollout, and for state and national leaders to commit to jab targets? News Corp Australia is seriously conflicted in this matter, e.g. via its corporate partnership with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and the Doherty Institute, which are involved in COVID-19 vaccine research. Like BHP, News Corp Australia is pressing COVID-19 injections upon its staff, with COVID-19 vaccination mandated for printing workers. See my email to Mr Miller, which includes reference to BHP’s coercive COVID-19 injection campaign: Mandated COVID-19 vaccination and News Corp Australia, 29 September 2021.
    BHP also has significant conflicts of interest which must be subject to scrutiny. For instance, it’s very interesting to discover that, along with the Australian Government, Victoria State Government and the University of Melbourne, BHP is a founding member of the Grattan Institute, which apparently backed a ‘zero covid’ strategy, and now recommends that National Cabinet set a goal for 80 per cent vaccination by the end of the year. This is a conflict of interest Mr Basto, BHP must clearly disclose its association with the Grattan Institute and the 80 percent vaccination target in regards to its insistence that all BHP staff be injected with COVID-19 injections.
    BHP is also associated with the Telethon Kids Institute, yet another institute which is involved with COVID-19 modelling. In October 2019 BHP announced a $20 million commitment to the Telethon Kids Institute – BHP commits $20 million to world-first research partnership with Aboriginal families – to “work one-on-one with up to 1,000 families to develop an unprecedented understanding of the cultural, environmental and policy settings that bring about the best outcomes for children under five”. Will BHP be dabbling in promotion of COVID-19 injections in Aboriginal communities?
    It’s also interesting that an ‘Edgar Basto’ is a PhD candidate at the Telethon Kids Institute, in the Systems Immunology Team. Is this Edgar Basto a relative of yours Mr Basto?
    And BHP invests in COVID-19 vaccine research – last year the BHP Foundation provided $2 million to support the University of Queensland develop a potential vaccine, one of eight vaccine candidates supported by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) rapid response program.
    BHP is also involved with funding COVID-19 interventions, i.e. the BHP Foundation, Anthony Pratt and the Pratt Foundation, and the Minderoo Foundation are funding the Doherty Institute’s Australasian COVID-19 (ASCOT) Trial “which is the only national trial of an intervention for hospitalised COVID-19 patients”. Meanwhile in Australia, other interventions that may reduce rates of hospitalisation, such as ivermectin, are being controversially suppressed.
    Here’s another interesting BHP connection, BHP linking up with Bill Gates-backed AI start-up to prospect for metals. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation dominates international vaccination policy via the World Health Organisation, the Gavi Alliance, CEPI, and many other entities. Is the Gates connection with BHP also influencing BHP’s stance on vaccination policy, e.g. mandating covid-19 injections for BHP staff?
    Are there any more conflicts of interest to disclose Mr Basto?
    There must be scrutiny of the involvement of corporate entities such as BHP in the COVID-19 response. Personally, I’m becoming more suspicious of the motives of ‘philanthropic’ organisations… What is really going on here? Interesting that people such as Larry Fink, CEO of global investment company BlackRock, are calling the shots on ‘corporate citizenship’ – in whose best interests is this power being wielded? See for example: Corporate philanthropy could keep the NFP sector above water.
    Mr Basto, I suggest there are major problems with the handling of the COVID-19 response and the rushed rollout of COVID-19 injections.
    As I’ve highlighted, it’s of particular concern that COVID-19 injections are being mandated for workers employed by companies with serious conflicts of interest, such as BHP and News Corp Australia.
    Apart from denying workers their right to voluntary informed consent before a medical intervention, this coerced mass vaccination denies people the opportunity to develop a robust and durable natural immunity (that is likely superior to temporary vaccine-induced ‘immunity’), with the apparent aim of hooking people on lucrative covid injections for life, stealing their natural immunity and developing multi-billion dollar covid injection markets in the process.
    Mr Basto, many of Australia’s nearly 26 million population have been pressed to have defective COVID-19 ‘leaky vaccines’, many under duress and government, medical and media fear-mongering.
    A vaccination apartheid is being imposed between the ‘vaccinated’ and the ‘unvaccinated’, with the unvaccinated having their freedom curtailed, as we are currently seeing evolve in New South Wales and Victoria. Ironically, ‘vaccine immunity’ may already be waning for the ‘vaccinated’. Much remains unknown in this global experiment, being undertaken without ‘informed consent’. In the meantime, millions of people who weren’t at serious risk of COVID-19 have potentially jeopardised their own natural immune response by having these ‘leaky vaccines’.
    What is unfolding is the worst act of treachery against the Australian people, i.e. the deliberate theft of their natural immune response, and imposed dependence upon the vaccine industry. Those who refuse to sacrifice their opportunity for natural immunity against SARS-CoV-2 are being ostracised, with even imprisonment and massive fines being a potential penalty via the draconian Biosecurity Act 2015.
    Mr Basto, you really need to think about BHP’s participation in this crime against the Australian people. This email will be forwarded to unions and others for consideration.
    Sincerely
    Elizabeth Hart
    Independent person investigating the over-use of vaccine products and conflicts of interest in vaccination policy.

    Mandated BS-19 Vazzination and News Corp Australia – Michael Miller, Executive Chairman
    30 September, 2021
    By Elizabeth Hart
    For the attention of:
    Mr Michael Miller
    Executive Chairman Australasia
    News Corp Australia
    Mr Miller, News Corp Australia is publishing a non-stop torrent of biased articles promoting the ‘vaccine solution’ to COVID-19 in its tabloids and The Australian etc, with little or nothing in the way of critical analysis of this unprecedented global vaccination rollout, and no disclosure of News Corp Australia’s conflicts of interest.
    News Corp Australia is controlling the narrative, denigrating people who question the COVID-19 vaccine rollout as ‘anti-vaxxers’, and censoring the comments of dissenting subscribers like me on publications such as The Australian. How many other Australians are similarly shut out of the conversation on important topics such as taxpayer-funded coercive COVID-19 vaccination?
    You have personally called upon Australia’s business leaders and owners to champion the COVID-19 vaccination rollout, and for state and national leaders to commit to jab targets, in your open letter reported in The Australian. Companies such as BHP Minerals Australia, Qantas, insurance company AAMI, Nine Entertainment, Coles and Woolworths, etc, have taken it upon themselves to interfere with the health decisions of millions of Australians by pressuring people to have the fast-tracked COVID-19 injections, about which so much remains unknown.
    Mr Miller, how many of these business leaders and owners, and News Corp Australia publication readers, know that News Corp Australia has a significant conflict of interest in promoting the rollout of COVID-19 vaccine products? Is the ‘Murdoch media beast’ serving its own best interests with its interference in taxpayer-funded COVID-19 vaccination policy?
    News Corp Australia is a corporate partner with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, which is involved in vaccine research and development, including COVID-19 vaccine research with the Doherty Institute. The modelling out of the Doherty Institute put Australia into lockdown last year, and Doherty modelling continues to restrict the free movement and association of Australians until a 70/80% vaccination target is reached, as discussed by Emma McArthur in her email to Jodie McVernon challenging the Doherty modelling. The Doherty modelling was influenced by the controversial modelling of Neil Ferguson et al from Imperial College London, that recommended ‘suppression’ of the virus (aka lockdown) “until a vaccine becomes available…” In their Report 9, Ferguson et al admit it is “not at all certain that suppression will succeed long term; no public health intervention with such disruptive effects on society has been previously attempted for such a long duration of time. How populations and societies will respond remains unclear”.
    In Australia, the Morrison Government has used the Ferguson influenced Doherty modelling to disrupt Australian society, and to crush the rights and freedoms of the Australian people over the past 19 months, with the opportunity for natural immunity being deliberately suppressed. Scott Morrison took the decision to close Australia off from the rest of the world – did he plan to deny Australians the opportunity to develop broad-based natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2, and instead endeavour to make the entire population dependent upon lucrative COVID-19 injections for life?
    I questioned the ethics of impeding the spread of natural immunity in my BMJ rapid response published in March 2020, see: Is it ethical to impede access to natural immunity? The case of SARS-CoV2. This unprecedented plan to vaccinate mass populations in the midst of a pandemic is unfolding into a disastrous situation, particularly the interference with the development of natural immunity. In this regard, see recent discussion with Geert Vanden Bossche and Robert Malone, and my email to Andrew Read in January this year: If Covid-19 vaccines don’t prevent transmission, can they facilitate the evolution of more virulent variants?
    Australians across age groups and health status are now being coerced to submit to fast-tracked experimental COVID-19 injections. The Sydney Morning Herald reports News Corp has mandated COVID-19
    vaccines for its printing workers, and that those who were unvaccinated by 19 September may have to take leave.
    On what basis is News Corp insisting employees submit to COVID-19 injections, without being allowed to consider their own health status, without coercion?
    The World Health Organisation acknowledges “Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment”. John Ioannidis et al report that “People <65 years old have very small risks of COVID-19 death even in pandemic epicenters and deaths for people <65 years without underlying conditions are remarkably uncommon.
    Strategies focusing on protecting high-risk individuals should be considered in managing the pandemic”.[9] (My emphasis.)
    Over the past 19 months 4.7 million deaths have been attributed to COVID-19 globally.[10] This is in a global population of 7.9 billion, where around 60 million deaths would be expected annually[11], so around 95 million deaths would be expected over 19 months. Seen in this context, 4.7 million deaths, most likely in elderly people with comorbidities, is not a great number, and even this figure is highly questionable in regards to deaths ‘of’ covid, or ‘with’ covid. Retrospective critical analysis is now required to investigate these figures, and the basis of this so-called ‘pandemic’.
    Mr Miller, are you aware the COVID-19 injections:
    apparently do not prevent infection nor transmission;
    only claim to reduce hospitalisations and deaths, which is not relevant to most people as most are not at serious risk of COVID-19;
    have unknown duration of ‘immunity’ – the Australian Government Department of Health website admits: “It is not yet known how long the protection of the COVID-19 vaccine will last. We will know more
    through ongoing research…” (See copy attached.) In other words the people having these injections are guinea pigs, and it’s likely most don’t realise they are participating in a global experiment;
    manufacturers and doctors have been protected from liability;
    future consequences of repeated covid injections throughout life are unknown; etc.
    Why are people of all ages and health status being deliberately alarmed about COVID-19, including via News Corp and other media? People in the vulnerable groups have been offered COVID-19 injections – why are people outside these vulnerable groups, e.g. perhaps many of News Corp’s employees, being pressured to submit to what could be lifelong COVID injections, against a disease which isn’t a serious risk for most people? Why is there apparently great reluctance to acknowledge treatments (e.g. Ivermectin) and preventatives (e.g. vitamin D) for COVID-19? It’s an extraordinary situation we’re in after 19 months. The situation is particularly serious for young people, who are being set up for a lifetime of COVID injections, despite the fact they are not at risk from COVID-19. It seems the plan is to steal young people’s, and others’, natural immunity.
    There is much that is unknown about the COVID-19 injections. It’s appalling that Australians are being coerced to submit to these medical interventions, and denied the right to properly consider the risks and benefits in their personal circumstances. We are now faced with ‘vaccine passports’, and a ‘vaccination apartheid’ is looming within our nation, aided and abetted by seriously conflicted News Corp Australia.
    Mr Miller, the Australian Immunisation Handbook notes:
    “For consent to be legally valid…It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation…It can only be given after the potential risks and benefits of the relevant vaccine, the risks of not having it, and any alternative options have been explained to the person”.
    I’ve raised this matter with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), as there is clearly a conflict with the Morrison and State Governments’ aggressive COVID-19 injection rollout, and health practitioners’ ethical responsibility to obtain informed consent before this medical intervention, see my emails:
    Is it ethical to insist on covid-19 injections for health staff? 7July 2021
    Is it ethical to inject mass populations with covid injections? Questioning the ethics evaluation process for covid vaccine clinical trials 5 July 2021.
    Is it ethical for doctors to inject children with covid-19 injections? 15 June 2021.
    Coercive covid-19 injections in Australia – email to the Medical Board of Australia, AHPRA, RACGP, RACP, AMA 8 June 2021.
    Amanda Watson, the National Complaints Manager of AHPRA, has now confirmed that:
    “Practitioners have an obligation to obtain informed consent for treatment, including vaccination. Informed consent is a person’s voluntary decision about health care that is made with knowledge and understanding of the benefits and risks involved. There is more information about informed consent in each National Board’s Code of Conduct or equivalent.
    I confirm that practitioners’ obligations to provide accurate information and advice about COVID-19 vaccination based on up to date and reputable sources of information about COVID-19 vaccines also apply when obtaining informed consent for COVID-19 vaccination.”
    News Corp’s mandating of COVID-19 vaccination for its printing staff is clearly interfering with their right to make a “voluntary decision about health care that is made with knowledge and understanding of the benefits and risks involved”. It appears News Corp is denying its employees their right to ‘informed consent’, without coercion.
    Mr Miller, you are also using your position at News Corp Australia to urge other employers to pressure their staff to have COVID-19 vaccination, via your open letter.
    You have very significantly crossed the line by seeking to interfere in the personal health decisions of Australians, coercing them to submit to COVID-19 injections.
    Who will be liable if these COVID-19 injections, that have been aggressively pressed upon Australians, cause problems, including their interference with the development of natural immunity?
    I request you reconsider your position in this matter, and the position of deeply conflicted News Corp Australia.
    Sincerely

  4. INTERESTING VIDEO ON YOUTUBE. TITLED:
    Interview with David Icke exposes the secret cult who controls the world. It is on Rob Moore’s channel.
    Well worth watching indeed! Conspiracy theory? Well YOU MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND but remember this, the difference between a conspiracy theory and a conspiracy can be as little as six month. Thank you and God bless.

  5. Thank you for the link for the file.
    Would you be able to say how can one find this file on DHHS website without using the link? I have friends that have a business to which I have sent the pdf file of these new directions, and they are asking where did I get the file, since they are unable to find it independently. Can someone please check and let me know?

  6. Thanks RDA for this amazing work. I am out of the working life but pretty horrified about the current state of play. All I can say is that you have my wholehearted support and I will do whatever I can to resist this evil.
