|For Immediate Release: June 2020
In under 2 weeks, nearly 1,200 Australian families have registered to tell their vaccine injury, vaccine death or unvaccinated story on the AVN’s Vaxxed Bus!
The Bus tour will be starting in mid July, 2020 in Southeast Queensland and is called The People’s Truth. It will enable parents who have ‘done the right thing’ by vaccinating their children according to government recommendations, only to see their precious children sicken or die as a result, to share their stories in a compassionate and sympathetic environment.
The Bus will also be a platform for those whose children are unvaccinated to tell their stories and to show Australians that good health does not necessarily come from a needle.
“The Australian Government, the mainstream media and medical authorities like the Australian Medical Association (AMA) are trying their hardest to prevent families from knowing the basic facts – listed in the prescribing information for each and every currently-licensed vaccine. These documents show that vaccines can and do cause a range of serious side effects including brain damage, anaphylaxis, paralysis and death amongst others.” Says AVN President, Aneeta Hafemeister.
The AVN sources its data from peer-reviewed science and believes that doctors should be abiding by the National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NH&MRC’s) requirements when it comes to providing patients with truly informed consent to vaccination:
For consent to be legally valid, the following elements must be present: 12,14
- It must be given by a person with legal capacity, and of sufficient intellectual capacity to understand the implications of receiving a vaccine.
- It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation.
- It must cover the specific procedure that is to be performed.
- 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.
The person must have the opportunity to seek more details or explanations about the vaccine or its administration.
“Nowhere in the NH&MRC or Australian Government requirements does it state or imply that vaccinations should be made mandatory without the ability to ask questions or ultimately refuse; should be administered with coercion; that those who want further information about this medical procedure should be bullied or ridiculed; or that they should lose their rights to informed choice and be labelled as ‘anti-vaxxers’ simply for asking questions.” Ms Hafemeister continued.
“The Bus will be our platform for informing, supporting and honouring those families whose children have paid the ultimate price for following government recommendations as well as being a place where data on the health status of the unvaccinated can be collected. We are doing what we have been asking the federal government to do since 1998 – comparing the health of the vaccinated vs that of the unvaccinated.”
