Covid Vaccine Program Raises Community Concerns

Revelations that two Australians were ill following administration of the COVID vaccine were disturbing, Clive Palmer said in Brisbane today.

“While I support the use of vaccines which have approval for general use such as measles and other diseases, I am very concerned of the emergency use of this vaccine on the general population,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“My understanding is that emergency use of a medicine is only authorised if the person receiving the treatment is in immediate danger of dying. This is not the case with millions of Australians who are not ill.

“The simple fact is that we don’t have one-year safety data, three-year safety data or five-year safety data for the use of the COVID vaccine on humans or animals,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“I do not understand why it is that millions of Australians should be subject to a medical treatment that has not complied with normal usage under Australian Law.

“The Governments around Australia have done a great job in protecting all Australians from COVID and for healthy Australians to receive an emergency treatment is, as I understand it, unprecedented.

“I don’t understand why Australians needs to rush or take risks with their health.

“It is difficult to understand how there could be overdoses administered by registered practitioners,’’ Mr Palmer said.
