Essential Services & First Responders

As essential services workers and first responders, we have been at the frontline in the response to covid-19, putting ourselves and our families at risk to serve our country.

Being able to provide for ourselves and our families, and continue to work to serve our fellow Australians, should not depend on informed decision around taking the covid-19 vaccines. Remember, we are often the first to see the results of covid-19 vaccine injuries.

Regardless of how long we have served in our professions, now we are being threatened with the loss of our jobs.

The option to choose has been stripped from us, and our basic human rights removed, because we choose not to submit ourselves to a medical intervention that is still in clinical trials until 2023. This intervention uses novel technologies never before tested in humans, where no medium or long-term safety and efficacy data exists, as there has been no time allowed to ascertain it; and the manufacturers themselves admit their product does not stop transmission of the virus.

The Chief Health Officers and governments enforcing these directives, are making a grave mistake by mandating these vaccines as there are known adverse reactions, some of which are serious, including death. Not only is it morally and ethically reprehensible, it will cause significant disruption to emergency paramedic services across the country, as many will simply not submit.
