Huge crowds are lining up in front of a regional medical clinic in hopes of getting a medical exemption for the Covid-19 vaccine – with police even clamoring to disperse the crowd.

Up to 300 people gathered outside a doctor’s office in the Victoria area on Wednesday, followed by another large crowd on Thursday.

Witnesses claimed that many in the crowd traveled to the small regional town amid rumors that a GP was granting waivers — something the doctor dismissed in a message published on his website.

The bizarre rush comes as about a million authorized workers in Victoria have an October 15 deadline to get a dose of the shot or a valid medical clearance.

The acting sergeant of the Victoria Police Department, Melissa Seach, said police received reports on Thursday of a large number of people “gathering outside the clinic for vaccination exemptions”.

Sergeant Seach told the… Geelong Advertiser traveling from the city to regional Victoria to get a vaccination waiver is not a valid reason to leave the house.

Rows of parked cars on either side of the road stretched hundreds of yards from the practice driveway, while others lined up outside the clinic doors.

One patient recalled seeing “people and cars everywhere” and said they should ask the woman behind them what was going on.

The woman replied ‘We are here for the Covid’.

The patient said they assumed the lines were people waiting to get a shot and was shocked to realize some in the crowd had the opposite intent.

‘I’m really, really p***ed off. “I did the right thing for 18 months and I was in a room with people who don’t care,” they said.
