Anti-vax families to lose benefits.

PIG-HEADED parents who refuse to vaccinate their children will have their family benefits docked every fortnight, as the Turnbull government ramps up its immunisation message.

Families who have not had their children vaccinated will lose $28 per child every fortnight in family tax benefits.

The government was pushed to close a loophole which would have meant families earning $80,000 would have escaped any penalty.

The current “No Jab, No Pay” policy fines families the one-off $726 supplement, but welfare reforms have cancelled that payment to 400,000 high-income families.

The new measure, which will begin next year, comes as the most recent Health Department statistics show immunisation rates remain low in many regions, particularly on the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast hinterland and far north Queensland.

Of children aged from 24 to 27 months, more than 23 per cent are not fully vaccinated in the Noosa region, 18 per cent in Maroochy and 17 per cent in Port Douglas.

About 14 per cent of children aged between 12 and 63 months in the Gold Coast hinterland are not fully vaccinated. The Whitsundays, Nambour, Buderim, Maryborough, parts of inner Brisbane and the suburbs of Kenmore and Springwood also have poor immunisation rates.

Social Services Minister Christian Porter, who will today announce the measure, told The Courier-Mail there was “no excuse for parents who, without a valid medical reason, choose not to immunise their children”.

“These parents are not only putting their own children’s health at risk, but the health of every other person’s children at risk, too,” he said.

“Reducing fortnightly payments rather than withholding the supplement at the end of the year as occurs at present, will serve as yet another constant reminder for parents to have their children’s immunisation requirements up to date.”

More than 210,000 families have immunised their children fully since the introduction of the ‘‘ No Jab, No Pay” policy in January last year.

Immunisation rates for one-year olds increased 1.35 per cent to 93.63 per cent across the country, while for two-year olds it rose 1.75 per cent to 90.06 per cent.

The ‘‘No Jab, No Pay” rule applies to about 1.5 million families, with 134,000 missing out on the supplementary payment for failing to vaccinate.

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
