Concerned Australians who support parents’ rights to make decisions about their children’s vaccinations without coercion have organised rallies in many Australian cities against the proposed “No Jab, No Pay” policy.
The “No Jab, No Pay” proposals, would if instituted, mean that families who choose not to vaccinate (or choose for their children to have some vaccines, but not every vaccine specified by the legislation) lose eligibility for child care subsidies and a family tax credit worth up to $15,000 per child, per year.* (Please see the text below the event listings for further details.)
A website has been set up at which details of the different events have been posted. It is below:
Below is the information from nojabnopaynoway.weebly.com (as of June 13):
