Omg This Guy is Worse than Abbott, Beware! – ConspiracyOz

No jab, no play, no pay

Vaccine objectors will no longer be able to access a range of Federal Government payments from next year under new rules designed to reinforce the importance of immunisation and protecting public health.

From 1 January 2016, ‘conscientious objection’ will be removed as an exemption category for Child Care Benefits, the Child Care Rebate and the Family Tax Benefit Part A end of year supplement.

Immunisation requirements for the payment of FTB Part A end-of-year supplement will also be extended to include children of all ages. Currently vaccination status is only checked at ages 1, 2 and 5 years.

Existing exemptions on medical grounds will continue, however the exemption for religious objection has also been closed.

The Federal Government made this decision after discussions with the only religious organisation with an approved vaccination exemption, the Church of Christ, Scientist, which said that it was not advising members not to vaccinate their children.

In addition, the Government has also announced a $26 million package to help boost immunisation rates by reminding parents about overdue vaccinations, as well as the importance of immunisation.

It will:

  • increase incentive payments to GPs to identify and catch up children who are overdue for their vaccinations
  • establish an Australian School Vaccination Register to record adolescent vaccines, and
  • provide a range of communication activities, tools and resources to increase awareness and address parents’ concerns about immunisation.

Member for Wentworth Malcolm Turnbull has urged parents to ensure their children’s immunisations are up to date.

Immunisation rates in eastern Sydney are among the lowest in the country.

Vaccination rates in Australia have increased since the Childhood Immunisation Register was set up in 1996. But so have the rates of vaccination objection, which have climbed steadily for children under the age of seven.

“The Government is extremely concerned at the risk this poses to other young children and the broader community,” Mr Turnbull said.

Mr Turnbull said that parents who were unsure about vaccination should find out more by speaking to their GP. He said the choice not to immunise children was not supported by medical research or public policy.

“Parents who vaccinate their children should have confidence that they can take them to child care or into the community without worrying that they might get ill because of the conscientious objections of others.”

Australia now has childhood vaccination rates over 90 per cent, from one to five years of age, but further protection from preventable diseases is needed for our children and our community.

  1. This is worth a look – Mick Raven

    What’s on Malcolm Turnbull’s Register of Interests?

    First, there are the listed companies and funds*. Among them is the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust [NYSEARCA:SPY]. Over the last two years, SPY is up by nearly 40%. This ETF is relatively popular because it offers exposure to big-name stocks, whilst being balanced and accessible. The Trust’s top ten holdings are Apple Inc., Microsoft Corporation, Exxon Mobil, Johnson & Johnson, GE, Wells Fargo, Berkshire Hathaway (Class B), JPMorgan,, and Pfizer Inc. Apple is the most substantial holding, at 3.8%. To put that in context, Microsoft comes next at 2.03%. So it’s very tech heavy. But perhaps not as tech heavy as Vanguard Information Technology ETF [NYSEARCA:VGT], which Turnbull bought in July last year. VGT’s top five holdings are Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and IBM.

    Then there’s the iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF [NYSEARCA:HYG]. This Fund pays dividends of around US$0.40 every month or so. It has bonds from a variety of big corporations. Interestingly, most are from the US communications services market.

    There’s also the Deutsche X-trackers MSCI Japan Hedged Eq [NYSEARCA:DBJP]. This fund tracks the MSCI Japan US Dollar Hedged Index. It provides exposure to Japanese equities, plus a hedge for the yen/US dollar exchange rate. Its top holdings include Toyota, Mitsubishi and Honda.

    The takeaway from this? Malcolm Turnbull likes ETFs. Which, like he said, can be kind of boring. But Turnbull has also bought in to a number of actively managed funds. For example, there’s the 3G Natural Resources Offshore Fund. This Fund is run by multi-billion dollar global firm 3G Capital. 3G is based in Brazil. The Fund’s nominated jurisdiction is the Cayman Islands, because…reasons. There’s no public information on what it holds.
