In Australia there is a bill in Parliament the No Domestic Covid Vaccine Passports Bill 2021.

 

If passed the bill will prohibit the Commonwealth, state and territory governments and other non-government entities from issuing domestic COVID-19 vaccine passports; and discrimination on the basis of whether a person has had a COVID 19 vaccination in the provision of goods, services and facilities; and in relation to employment, education, accommodation and sport.

 

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced on Friday 20 August 2021 that childcare workers and disability support workers who live or work in the LGAs of concern must have their first vaccination dose by 30 August 2021. On 28 June 2021, the Australian Government announced that COVID-19 vaccinations would be made mandatory for residential aged care workers. All workers in aged care will be required to receive their first dose of the vaccine by September this year. Queensland has a public health order in place mandating vaccination for health service employees who are likely to encounter and treat people with COVID-19.

 

What this means is that any workers in a vaccine mandated industry, who choose not to be vaccinated and who are not medically exempt, will not be able to work and will lose their capacity to earn an income.

 

There is nothing in law that currently protects individuals against discrimination based on your vaccine status, it is not a protected attribute. Since COVID-19 is novel we need to ensure that the community are protected against this kind of discrimination.

 

People deserve to have the choice and retain individual sovereignty over their bodies and the medical treatment they receive without coercion. That is why this bill needs to be supported and we need Parliament to see where the community stands.

 

You can be fully vaccinated, unvaccinated, pro-vaccine, or anti-vaccine, and still sign this petition as it only regards to the mandate.
