[by video link] I deliver this speech on behalf of Senator Roberts. I'll discuss parliament's shoddy governance on COVID—the lack of learning, lack of planning and lack of oversight. Vaccine proponents claim COVID injections are as safe as the polio vaccine. Here's real data. In the polio vaccine's early days, it caused deaths. The Cutter incident in 1955 was called one of the worst pharmaceutical disasters in US history, with 164 permanent paralysis cases and 10 deaths among vaccinated individuals and contacts. Many Australians fear the government has only one COVID solution: experimental gene-therapy injections.
Already vaccine efficiency is plummeting. The Lancet last month showed that vaccine efficiency is falling twofold, between 21 to 41 days and 70 days after the second dose. Sixty-three per cent of Israelis have had both Pfizer doses, yet Israel recorded 3,372 new cases on Monday, 10 times what it was a month ago. Deaths are increasing. Studies by Israel's health ministry show the Pfizer vaccine is now only 39 per cent effective against infection. Pfizer recently admitted that immunity from its two-dose vaccine is waning, and it will seek FDA authorisation for a third booster shot.
Randomised control trials show no evidence that the provisionally approved vaccines have any prolonged efficacy. The experimental vaccine manufacturers demanded and got indemnity from the Australian government, demonstrating a lack of faith in their own product. We do know that vaccinated Australians have been harmed or have died.
This government, Labor and the unions, who supported compulsory injections without workers informed consent, have lost people's trust. Australians deserve to know the significant short-term risks and unknown long-term side effects of injections— (Time expired)
