Title
No mandatory vaccinations or vaccine passports
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the issue of COVID-19 vaccination being made mandatory and vaccination passports being introduced in Victoria.

The prolonged State of Emergency and the reduction of the standard checks and balances of power, inherent to our democracy, has allowed the Government to dangerously threaten human rights and liberties by enforcing mandatory vaccination and proposing the introduction of a proof of vaccination system.

Sovereignty over one’s body and freedom of health care choices are basic human rights that a democracy cannot afford to lose, even in the name of public health, as it sets a dangerous precedent.

Likewise, the introduction of a vaccination passport, or similarly mandated proof of vaccination, to allow or prevent an individual access to everyday activities such as work, healthcare, education or recreation, amounts to creating a two-tiered society and setting Victoria on a path to legalising segregation and discrimination.

It is crucial that the public be extensively educated, consulted and respected regarding their own health and rights, including individual liberties such as choice and privacy.

Vaccination is likely to be chosen by most of whom are given the choice.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to abandon mandatory vaccinations and the development of vaccination passports that would give agencies, businesses, organisations and individuals the right to limit access to goods and services according to COVID-19 vaccination status.
