Bizarre moment when anti-vaxxers storm chemists and manual workers demand ridiculous strike letters demanding they stop administering Covid jabs
- Three night pharmacies in Canberra attacked
- Conspiracy theorists were then the target of ridicule
Three overnight pharmacies in Canberra have been targeted by anti-vaxxers who tried to hand them a three-page cease and desist letter for administering Covid vaccines.
Pharmacists in Charnwood, O’Connor and Civic were visited by the conspiracy theorists on Wednesday night, with a shop’s security throwing them out.
But the “cookers” – so called because they come up with conspiracy theories – have themselves been targeted, with derision, for their outlandish stunt.
In a video they made, one of them could be seen telling a guard that they were ‘doing a job for the Australian people’.
“We’re trying to protect them from the death shots you give them… you make the decision to deliver the shots,” a man on the video said.

The anti-vaxxer also lied by saying he didn’t record the employee after she asked him not to film her.
When she asked them to leave the store, a female anti-vaxxer said she “served” the pharmacy assistant with papers to quit.
“Basically what I’m going to do is I’m going to file this paperwork, it’s basically a cease and desist,” she said.
A copy of the newspapers, with the headline ‘WARNING’, has been posted online and roundly mocked.
“To all doctors, doctors, nurses and everyone administering the Covid-19 vaccine.
“This is a formal warning of your legal duty to clearly inform someone before receiving a Covid-19 vaccination about the following,” the nonsense document read.

It claims the Covid vaccine is “experimental” and that “scientists don’t know the long-term side effects,” before threatening “legal action.”
One commenter joked that those involved in the stunt should send themselves a cease and desist letter for spreading misinformation.
Another said the group is “Unemployed idlers tell skilled people their jobs.”
“I hope every pharmacist just rips it up in front of them,” a third commented.
The story of the attempted intervention in Canberra also comes on the same day a prominent Melbourne anti-vaxxer was reported to have begged ‘older’ Australians to give her their inheritance to save her conspiracy-based movement from bankruptcy.

WHY VACCINES ARE IMPORTANT
Vaccination is a simple, safe and effective way to protect people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them.
Vaccination not only protects individuals, but also others in the community, by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.
Research and testing are an essential part of developing safe and effective vaccines.
In Australia, vaccines must pass rigorous safety testing before the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) registers them for use. Vaccine approval can take up to 10 years.
Before vaccines become available to the public, they are tested in thousands of people in large clinical trials.
For many years, high-quality studies have compared the health of large numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Medical information from nearly 1.5 million children around the world has confirmed that vaccination does not cause autism.
People first became concerned about autism and immunization after the medical journal The Lancet published an article in 1998. This article claimed that there was a link between the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism.
Since then, scientists have completely discredited this article. The Lancet retracted it in 2010 and printed an apology. The British General Medical Council removed the author from the medical register for misconduct and dishonesty.
