Dear Mr. Maley,
Further to my previous communication (13 July 2016) I would like to present you with this conclusive evidence that mandatory vaccination policies in Australia’s social welfare policy represent a danger to public health. Here is a link to Peter McIntyre’s (director of the NCIRS) own admission that the government has never collected the empirical evidence needed to claim that the government’s childhood vaccination schedule is ‘safe and effective’.
The credibility of the ABC is at stake if you continue to ignore the academic arguments that myself and many others are providing to demonstrate the danger that mandatory vaccination policies represent to Australians. Here is Peter McIntyre’s admission of the inadequacy of the underpinning science of the No Jab No Pay/Play policy. Again I have copied Judy Raper, the UOW Vice-Chancellor of Research and Gillian Triggs, the Human Rights Commissioner into this email so there is documented evidence that the ABC has again ignored the academic research that I am presenting for public debate. I have also copied the concerned community into this email and we look forward to your prompt response that will be published on my website. Please read Newsletter 120 below:
Did you know that government’s globally are claiming that vaccines are safe and effective without doing the empirical studies that would prove or disprove this claim? Here is Professor Peter McIntyre, the director of Australia’s National Institute Centre for Research and Surveillance (NCIRS) of Infectious Diseases from 2004 – 2016 admitting that there are no long-term health studies investigating the combined schedule of childhood vaccines, in infants or animals, to determine the adverse health outcomes that are causally linked to vaccines.
Peter McIntyre has also stated (PHAA Newsletter April 2009) that “…like autism, allergy has been increasing of late, as has the use of vaccines, and it will always be tempting to draw the conclusion that the two are related, especially when there are no clear alternative explanations. But as public health practitioners we should resist unscientific conclusions in favour of rigorously designed epidemiology studies at the population level...”
Peter McIntyre’s conclusions that the Australian National schedule of 11 plus vaccines in the first year of life is ‘safe and effective’, without this empirical evidence of safety is unscientific. And the experts in science and politics (and many parents) that have assessed my thesis also agree that such a claim is unscientific. Further, there are many systemic studies that conclude there is a relationship between vaccines and autism/asthma/autoimmune diseases, allergies and other chronic illness, and it is not acceptable to promote the Australian schedule of vaccines as ‘safe and effective’ by ignoring these studies. Without this empirical evidence government vaccination policies are an experiment on the population.
In May 2009 whilst teaching at Murdoch University I presented a poster at the Australian National Health Promotion conference in Perth. This poster was titled ‘Coercive and Mandatory Immunisation: how ethical is this policy? This poster describes the correlation between the increased use of vaccines and chronic illness in the population. Whilst correlation is not causation, it is unscientific not to investigate this association with empirical studies.
This lack of evidence for the safety and efficacy of the National Immunisation Program (NIP) could explain why Peter McIntyre, Robert Booy (co-director NCIRS 2005-20015) and ~45 other doctors and public health / government authorities, were not prepared to debate the No Jab No Pay/Play social welfare policy before it was introduced in November 2015 (effective on 1 January 2016). Here is the video of the Question and Answer: No Jab No Pay/Play public forum that was held at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) that government representatives and doctors would not attend.
When governments do not have the evidence to support their policies it is necessary to select and control the information. This is what we are observing in Australia with the assistance of professional lobby groups such as the Australian Skeptics groups, Stop the Australian Vaccination Network (SAVN) and the Friends of Science in Medicine. All of these lobby groups are influential in the mainstream media and on government vaccine advisory boards and panels with the purpose of influencing public/professional opinion on vaccines. Here is the false and misleading information that has been provided by Dr. John Cunningham, a leader of the SAVN lobby group, in the vaccination debate http://vaccinationdecisions.net/correcting-the-information-provided-by-john-cunningham-in-the-vaccination-debate/
