Just this past June at the 2018 National Immunization Conference in Adelaide, Australia, Associate Professor Julie Leask of Sydney University made a disturbing announcement: some “medically-complex” children will require sedation or even general anesthesia in order to undergo catch-up vaccination. And as if that wasn’t shocking enough, she also announced that if parents don’t consent they will be denied family assistance payments.


Here’s a snippet of her presentation:

But please keep in mind, even general anesthesia has risks; in fact, a study done in 2015 linked it to a “reduction in IQ and changes in brain structure.”1


Here are some possible side effects of general anesthetic, courtesy of The Victorian Department of Health:2

  • Injury at the injection site
  • Infection
  • Breathing problems
  • Short term damage to nerves
  • Allergic reaction (like an asthma attack)
  • Having sensation (and pain) during the operation
  • Damage to the mouth, teeth, lips or tongue
  • Damage to vocal cords or larynx
  • Lung damage
  • Heart attack
  • Brain damage
  • Stroke
  • Kidney failure
  • Liver failure
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia

Now, if those are just the risks associated with general anesthesia, can you imagine what might happen when vaccines are given at the same time? Has this ever been studied for safety? And what doctor in their right mind is ok with vaccinating a child while they are under anesthesia? And perhaps the biggest question of all, why aren’t those medically complex children being given a medical exemption?


While Leask didn’t speak to what exactly a “medically-complex” child was, it feels safe to assume they are kids with “neurological disorders such as Autism, whose conditions may have been caused by vaccination in the first place.”3

Oh, the cruel and disgusting irony. Our hearts go out to the parents of those children who feel they have no choice. We cannot imagine.
