Title
Exemptions from COVID-19 lockdowns for vaccinated persons
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that multiple safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines exist. Yet, those of the population who have been vaccinated against the virus are subject to the same restrictions as those who are un-vaccinated and vulnerable. Lockdowns should only be used as an emergency measure to protect the vulnerable where no other reasonable measures exist.

Additionally, there is exceptional and unwarranted vaccine hesitancy amongst the population. There is no incentive for the population to get vaccinated. Recent history has demonstrated that Victorians are likely to be subject to lockdowns and 14-day quarantine regardless of whether they are vaccinated or not.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to introduce exemptions for vaccinated Victorians from lockdowns and 14-day quarantine within the state.
