We are a collective group of concerned Queensland Health (QHealth) Qld Ambulance Service (QAS) Allied Health and Midwife employees and their families who disagree with the recent COVID-19 vaccine mandate of our employer: QHealth, QAS and soon to be allied health.
We are not pro or anti-vaccine. This is not a pro or anti-vaccine matter. It is a question of whether our employers, on behalf of the government, can authorise civil conscription and interfere with the relationship between a patient and their doctor by mandating a vaccine. Our country has a representative democratic government structured to afford its citizens legal protection against the exercise of arbitrary political power.
The Australian Immunisation Handbook states vaccines ‘must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation’.
We consider it to be the case that a mandatory vaccination policy at the initiative of an employer is incompatible with our workplace rights as employees and that it infringes upon our rights to give free and informed consent to a medical procedure.
