Anti-Vaccine Nurses, Midwives Threatened With Punishment In Australia
Australia's industry regulatory organization has released it's cautionary advice last Thursday about the recent outbreaks of preventable disease. Thus, nurses and midwives promoting antivaccination messages all over Australia face the threat of being punished.
According to reports of Asia One Health, a"no job, no pay" policy has been reportedly carried out which will disable parents from availing some of the government's benefits who refuse to get their child be vaccinated. The said movement has been fulfilled as a response to the growing concern about anti-vaccination movements in Canberra last year.
The campaign was then followed by a massive outbreak of measles in Europe and as well as parts of the United States and local whooping cough and has also reported measle cases in Australia.
Although it was already clarified by a number of previous studies, those who had rejected the vaccination are still allegedly living in fear that a triple dose of vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella viruses could cause autism.
After the reports of having a "small number" of practitioners promoting the anti-vaccination statements to various patients and through social media, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) said that it has then issued its warning since it creates confusion against the best available scientific evidence.
As per Medical Express, in one of their statements, the regulator claims that when it comes to their responsibilities and public protection, the NMBA and Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) are very serious and will take whatever necessary actions on nurses and midwives if found guilty of promoting anti-vaccination to the public.
However, Belinda Henkel, an Australian midwife told Sydney's Daily Telegraph that despite the regulator's warning, she doesn't have any plans of removing the anti-vaccination messages that she has already posted before.
Additionally, Henkel said that although she is not going to remove anything that she has posted, she claims that she has agreed to be in a state of reluctantly being receptive to AHPRA's request.Furthermore, she will also give her undying support to the vaccination regime that they have.
