I stumbled upon an interesting article posted by Australian Doctor about a new mobile service aimed at increasing vaccination rates amongst youth. The new service has proved effective so far at increasing vaccinations from around 50% up to nearly 100%.
Tracking down and vaccinating wayward youths at bus stops and skate parks could prove a solution to raising immunisation rates in rural Australia.
The approach has paid off at a high school in rural Queensland, where a drive-by vaccination squad has seen an increase from about 50% to up to 100% of 13-15-year-olds being immunised. –Australian Doctor
Of course this increased protection from lethal disease has greatly upset Meryl Dorey of the deceptively named Australian Vaccination Network.
Yes, Meryl Dorey has likened the application of life saving medicines to kidnapping. This shouldn’t come as any surprise given her history of calling vaccinations Child Rape, but I have to wonder how foolish someone would have to be in-order to take anything Meryl says seriously. Perhaps AVN supporters should take a good look at their beloved leader. She may be in need of psychiatric help, at least her past, present and possibly future actions seem to indicate a very disturbed individual.
Perhaps Meryl Dorey missed this vital clue.
“We’ve had parents contacting us and giving us permission to meet the children at the school bus … and we would have them immunised by the time they return to school,” said Gordon Luck, director of nursing at Mount Morgan Hospital, which runs the mobile service. –Australian Doctor
Then again, never let the truth get in the way of your lunatic fear mongering. That’s the anti-vax agenda.
