AUSTRALIA - IMMUNISATION EXEMPTIONS (includes current statutes, letters & forms)
Current Statutes & Laws: see below Medical, Religious & Philosophical
Vaccination is NOT compulsory in Australia.
Note: 12 August 2021 Are COVID-19 vaccines mandatory in Australia?
Vaccination for COVID-19 is voluntary – as are all vaccinations in Australia – and people maintain the option to choose.
This will apply to any COVID-19 vaccination that may become available.
There may be circumstances in the future in which proof of vaccination will be required, such as border or re-entry requirements, or continued employment in particular areas. One example of this is the mandatory vaccination requirements for all residential aged care workers which will come into effect on 17 September 2021 in line with relevant state and territory directions.

Currently: Families with a Conscientious or Religious exemption or a partially vaccinated child will be denied Family Tax Benefit unless the child is:
* Enrolled in a "catch-up" program with NIPS. (ends January 2017)
* Is Medically Exempt.
* Has contracted a disease or diseases and thus has natural immunity.
* A vaccine is unavailable.
For those who are planning a hospital birth but want to evade invasive
routine post natal procedures such as a Hep B shot, vitamin K
injection, newborn screening, or the application of silver nitrate in
the newborn's eyes, a very specific birthing plan must be submitted to
the hospital in advance of the birth. Hospital staff must be informed,
in advance, of your needs, wants and desires where your baby and
birthing experience are concerned. The same applies to midwives.
Create the Birthplan. Or modify one of our ours to fit your state laws and any other personal circumstances. (see below)
Sign the birthplan in front of a Notary.
Submit the birth plan to your hospital or midwife. Keep a couple extra copies in case plans change.
Make sure affected parties (doctors, nurses, etc) understand your requirements and wishes.
Plan on having one or two trusted persons stay with the mother and
child to watch the child at all times while in the hospital, so no
unwanted injections are given the baby.
The birth plan arrangements and letter should be turned in before delivery date.
3. Know your options: Pre-Birth Diet, Oral Vitamin K, or synthetic Vitamin K Injection.
GENERAL INFORMATION Vitamin K
Vitamin K Injection...
The Question of Vitamin K for Newborns
"Essentially all human infants are born with very low blood levels of vitamin K and, since low amounts of vitamin K crosses into breast milk, levels remain low for several weeks after birth in breastfed babies. The purpose of this natural, universal experience of low vitamin K levels in newborns is not known. ..."
"Mouse and epidemiologic studies indicate that the neonatal “deficiency” of vitamin K, which promotes cell turnover, may actually protect the developing fetus from damaging substances that “escape the primary placental screen.”
Read the rest of the article here:
The prescribing information on Vitamin K shot states that fatalities are an adverse reaction according to the Merck pharmaceutical package insert.
"The injectable form of vitamin K can rarely cause severe (sometimes fatal) allergic reactions when given by injection into a muscle or vein.
Therefore, vitamin K should be injected into a muscle or vein only when it cannot be given by injection under the skin or taken by mouth, or when your doctor has judged
that the benefit is greater than the risk. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction such as rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, or trouble breathing."
Potential exists for the newborn to experience hypersensitivity to any component of this medication.
Each milliliter contains: Phytonadione .. 2 mg or 10 mg
Polyoxyethylated fatty acid derivative .... 70 mg
Dextrose................................... 37.5 mg
Water for Injection, q.s. .................. 1 mL
Added as preservative: Benzyl alcohol .... 0.9%
Although oral vitamin K is not licensed for use as a drug by the FDA,
drops for oral administration are available. Typically, one drop
contains 2 mg. of vitamin K. Contact a midwife in your area, or a
birthing supply company (such as
or Scientific Botanicals (206 527-5521) where your health care provider can order liquid vitamin K directly.
Here's another much safer alternative that your chiropractor or naturopath can order for you.

Hepatitis B Vaccine
Most states now require the Hepatitis B vaccine for newborns. Many parents are also cornered by emergency room
personnel during accident visits. Hospitals nationally are under
pressure to utilize every opportunity to score a "hit." If your
pediatrician understands your views, get him involved with the
hospital. As a last resort, protect your right to receive quality care
in by asking hospital personal to sign the following waiver. Usually,
you'll never find anybody in the hospital to sign this simple form, but
you well get relief from demands to vaccinate your child.
"I certify that the (Name of Vaccine)________ vaccine being
administered to (Name of Child)_________ is free from all known and yet
unknown zoonotic or human viruses or viral fragments and will not cause
acute or chronic illness in the recipient due to viral contamination or
as a reaction to the components of this vaccine. (Signature of
Physician and Date)_________."

Waivers - Take Care In Signing
If you take your new baby to an MD as opposed to a naturopath and/or
chiropractor, please be aware of and careful of any forms you sign.

this letter from our director, Ingri Cassel, before you consider
signing waiver forms.

We (here in Idaho) are hearing more reports of schools and daycares across our state not
honoring legal and valid vaccine exemptions.
The following article contains very important information as to why you
do NOT want to sign AAP's (state adopted) exemption form:
Older letter regarding exemptions in Idaho (similar to many states today)
Dear VacLib Members and Friends -
Wanted to give you all a heads up on state issued exemption forms. I
haven't had to deal with this personally for several years, and I
always crossed out sentences or clauses, and often adding some of my
own, before signing their exemption of medical release type of forms.
When Donna Carrillo began to diligently search out existing exemption
forms and posting them, I read over a couple of them and encouraged
people to make up their own whenever possible. After having a "closer
encounter" with such a form - a form provided to the state of Idaho by
the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention and used by licensed Idaho daycares, I was shocked into
the VERY REAL danger of signing these forms without changing them
Any form one affixes their initials to, dates and affixes their
signature to at the end is a LEGAL document. All statements prior to
your signature you must agree to fully OR restrict your signature to
say that you are signing under TDC - threat, duress, and coercion. The
form that my daughter was told she needed to fill out for this daycare
is posted here:
On this form, she crossed out all the "nots" and in her personal
statement she further clarified that she understands fully the risks of
vaccinating her child.
I have since found out that most public schools and daycares in other
states also use a similar form. Basically, by initialing and signing
this form as is, you are admitting to understanding that "vaccine
preventable" diseases are extremely deadly and ALSO admitting to
negligence for willfully denying your son/daughter the life saving
protection that vaccines offer. These forms are MEANT to not only be
intimidating but to catch the legally ignorant off guard. This is very
serious to me since all states have adopted the federally funded Child
Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act which gives states the right to
literally steal your children for up to 48 hours -- the time they have
to prove child neglect OR abuse.
If it were ME, I would insist that they accept a form that I provide
them since it satisfies the law. If there are any problems or they
insist on me using their form, I would cite the law and ask the school
or daycare provider where it actually says in state statute that this
particular form is the only form that will satisfy the law. Since your
parental rights are at stake here, it is best to be vigilant and err on
the side of being overly cautious.
A modified AAP form is posted here that you may wish to use with your doctor: AAPmodified.htm
Not all State employees are aware of the law and many exhibit the
Hitler Complex. Take a firm stand. Some individuals have had difficulty
getting the required forms. Such arrogance on the part of State
employees should be reported to the Director of your state Department

Childcare and School Immunization Requirements
Most states now require the Hepatitis B vaccine for newborns. Many parents are also cornered by emergency room personnel during accident visits. Hospitals nationally are under pressure to utilize every opportunity to score a "hit." If your pediatrician understands your views, get him involved with the hospital. As a last resort, protect your right to receive quality care in the following manner. (Usually, you'll never find anybody in the hospital to sign this simple form):
"I certify that the (Name of Vaccine)________ vaccine being administered to (Name of Child)_________ is free from all known and yet unknown zoonotic or human viruses or viral fragments and will not cause acute or chronic illness in the recipient due to viral contamination or as a reaction to the components of this vaccine. (Signature of Physician and Date)_________."
If you do get a signature, hold on to the form.
The ACCEPTANCE OF RESPONSIBILITY is imperative in exercising
your rights for legal exemptions from forced medical experimentation and legalized bioterrorism. DO be prepared to fight for your baby's rights!

See this web site for information on exemptions in "daycare" (Medical only) versus "compulsory" phase of school. https://avn.org.au/information/vaccine-laws/no-jab-no-school-not-true/
As there is no requirement for children to be vaccinated to be enrolled in the compulsory phases of school, there is also no requirement for the parents of unvaccinated children to formally conscientiously object to the vaccination of their children.
Your child may have an exemption from the immunisation requirements if:
a recognised immunisation provider (e.g. your doctor) signs a letter or form saying that:
they have told you about the benefits and risks of immunising your child and you have a conscientious objection to immunising your child (your provider should complete a Health Insurance Commission Immu-12 form),
immunising your child with a particular vaccine is medically contraindicated (your provider should use the Health Insurance Commission Immu-11 form),
the child has a natural immunity to the disease, or
the vaccine is not available,
you or your partner are a member of the Church of Christ, Scientist and you have a letter from an official of the Church advising that you are a practising member of the Church.
What are the exemptions?
To receive these benefits without being fully immunised your immunisation provider needs to certify that:
Your child has a medical reason not to have a particular vaccination;
Your child has had a disease and has a natural immunity;
A particular vaccine is unavailable.
Official Form Required: Use Vaccine Exemption due to Medical Contraindication
