The NSW Office of Fair Trading doorstopped the home of Australian Vaccination Network president Meryl Dorey yesterday with a letter of action, labelling the network's name misleading and a detriment to the community.

Wow interesting. I'd say being called the "vaccination network" when you are against vaccinations is misleading but it is surprising to order them to change their name. I guess Australia takes their public health seriously.
i think that is really awesome. his argument makes total sense and it is wildly misleading if they give parents information which the parents think is objective.
i have a really hard time understanding being against all vaccinations. sure, there are vaccinations that you can avoid without endangering others. but there are a LOT of vaccines that are basically the reason for us not being wiped out by epidemics. and really, if your child has no health issues that makes it dangerous to give them a vaccine, not only are you endangering your own child, you are also endangering other children that are not vaccinated - and some children literally can't be vaccinated because of health issues.
