“Immunisation Week” a “reminder of how fortunate we are in NZ”

Press release fropm  No Forced Vaccines

May 2, 2017

 

Immunisation Week is “a chance for New Zealanders to reflect on how lucky we are”, says Katherine Smith, the spokeswoman for No Forced Vaccines, a group that opposes forced or coerced vaccination.

“New Zealanders are fortunate in that parents who want their children to be vaccinated are able to access the vaccines recommended by the Ministry of Health for free, thus helping to ensure equitable access to this service, regardless of family income,” Smith says. Free vaccines and government promotion of vaccination have resulted in NZ having a record high vaccination rate for young children.

“On the other side of the equation,” Smith notes “New Zealand parents’ rights to make decisions about vaccination are respected by the government” and if “parents decide against vaccination, or for their children to have some, but not all recommended vaccinations, they are able to make this choice.”

“Powerful” film Vaxxed raises important questions about vaccine safety

New Zealand health advocate Allison Roe, who is an elected member of the Waitemata District Health Board, was one of the four hundred people who attended the premiere of the film Vaxxed:  From Cover-up to Catastrophe on Sunday, April 2.

 

“I am here to be informed and have no idea if other health board members are in attendance Roe said, “However, I would encourage all other DHB members to take advantage of the ongoing screenings and see Vaxxed themselves, or watch it online”.

 

The film, Roe, says is “not anti-vaccination”,  as has been widely reported.

 

However the film “does make a powerful case that MMR vaccination prior to the age of three years is a risk factor for previously normally developing children regressing into autism.”

 

According to Roe, the film suggests that making single measles, mumps and rubella shots available could provide parents who want to vaccinate with a safer alternative to the combined MMR shot.

 

The film was co-produced by British couple Polly and Jon Tommey (whose previously healthy son Billy suffered a seizure and regressed into autism following an MMR shot at the age of 12 months) and Del Bigtree who produced the popular medical talk show “The Doctors”.

 

The film is based on data provided by a whistle-blower scientist (Dr. William Thompson) from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) who in 2014, confessed that he and his colleagues had committed scientific fraud in a study of the MMR vaccine and autism.

 

Vaxxed is a powerful film,” Roe concludes, “and given the importance of the health of our children to the future of our country, I hope that parents, health professionals and people involved in healthcare management will take the opportunity to see the film for themselves and to think carefully about its implications”.

Proposal to Ban Unvaccinated Children from Childcare “Assault on Parents’ and Children’s Rights”

Proposal to Ban Unvaccinated Children from Childcare “Assault on Parents’ and Children’s Rights”

No Forced Vaccines, Press release March 14, 2017

 

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s support for banning unvaccinated children from childcare centres and preschools “shows a worrying lack of knowledge about the risks of vaccines and a lack of respects for the parents’ and children’s rights”, according to Katherine Smith, spokeswoman for No Forced Vaccines, a New Zealand based organisation that opposes forced or coerced vaccination.

“Parents have the right to choose whether or not to vaccinate their children,” Smith says, adding that Australia’s current childhood vaccination rate (95%) shows that most parents support vaccination.

Those parents who choose not to vaccinate, she says, are usually well educated middle class parents who have made this decision after carefully weighing up the risks and benefits of the procedure.

“Parents make vaccination decisions based on the best interests of their children,” Smith says, adding that vaccines were “well documented to cause a variety of side effects ranging from mild adverse effects to fatal adverse reactions” and while these risks were acceptable to some parents, others parents’ perception was that their children’s health was better served by avoiding the risks of vaccination.

“For a government to use any sort of coercive tactics to try to increase vaccination rates is not acceptable in a democracy where people have the right to make a free and informed decision about medical treatment.”

Australian parents who had made an informed decision not to vaccinate their children would no doubt be “extremely concerned about their Prime Minister’s proposal that their healthy children should be banned from childcare or preschool and the potential impact on their children’s education and family finances if such a discriminatory ban were to become a reality,” Smith added.

Smith said that she was “relieved” that the current NZ government, while a strong supporter of vaccination, did not consider denying unvaccinated children the opportunity to attend a childcare centre or preschool to be an appropriate way to increase vaccination rates.

She was concerned that a quote from Andrew Little suggested that he thought that the idea of banning unvaccinated children from childcare centres or preschools was worth considering.

“I hope that Mr. Little will reconsider this position once he gives the matter some thought. New Zealand parents deserve respect for the job that they are doing raising the next generation of New Zealanders and it is not the government’s place to interfere with the healthcare decisions that parents make in the best interests of their healthy babies and children by using coercive tactics to increase vaccination rates.

“I hope that Mr. Little will educate himself about New Zealand’s already very high vaccination rates, and how these have been achieved, as well as the reasons why some parents choose not to vaccinate their children” she added.

“I hope Mr. Little will attend the New Zealand premiere of the film Vaxxed:  From Cover-up to Catastrophe that details how evidence of a vaccine-autism link was covered up by scientists from the US Centers for Disease Control.  This will help him to understand why some parents prefer not to vaccinate their children – or to avoid the use of some vaccines that they consider to pose unacceptable risks to their children’s health”, Smith concluded.
