Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Against Adverse Effects Of COVID Vaccine
A Whitsunday doctor is taking the lead on fighting for the rights of people who have suffered loss and damage as a result of being injected with one or more of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Dr Melissa McCann is launching a nation-wide Class Action lawsuit to fight what she believes to be a failing government compensation scheme and unsafe vaccine.
For the past 10 years Dr McCann has practiced as a GP in the Whitsundays and she now chooses not to administer COVID vaccinations since witnessing first hand serious adverse events after these vaccines; and also following the introduction of mandates which she believes interfere with informed consent and medical ethics.
Since the vaccination became available, Dr McCann has witnessed an unusually large amount of patients presenting with adverse effects such as chest pain, blood clots, miscarriages and strokes shortly after receiving a COVID vaccination.
Deciding to speak up and take the matter to the government, Dr McCann wrote a series of letters to Dr Brendan Murphy, Department of Health and Aged Care Secretary, and the Former Deputy Secretary of Health Products Regulation Group Adjunct Professor John Skerritt.
“I asked them to cease the program and review safety issues,” she explained.
“But I was told the ‘events were coincidental’ and that a certain amount of adverse effects were expected with the widespread rollout of a new vaccine.”
Dissatisfied with the response, Dr McCann began speaking to other doctors around the country and discovered that they had also witnessed a disproportionate amount of patients presenting with adverse effects.
“It’s difficult for doctors to talk openly about this,” said Dr McCann.
“Many are very afraid to speak up.”
Despite this, Dr McCann managed to gather 14 signatures from other GPs, specialists, and Emergency Department doctors from all around Australia, who all supported her claim.
She sent another letter, and in April received another dismissive response.
This prompted her to start legal action.
