Greg Foran. CEO Air NZ.
I would like to make you aware there are a lot of New Zealanders who will not be bullied, put their lives on the line or be used as pawns to promote vaccination and to boost profits for the pharmaceutical industry. Air New Zealand is ‘flying blind’ if it thinks that it can bully travellers into an experimental medical procedure. We call on all New Zealanders to stand together to boycott the “Health Passport”.
Air New Zealand and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) is on dangerous ground with its announcement to trial its “Health Passport” for proof of negative covid test or covid vaccine status for travellers. Airlines cannot put themselves in the position of making public health decisions that have serious consequences and subtly intimidating travellers into experimental medical procedures. Any of the vaccines that ANZ and IATA is wanting its passengers to have, will essentially be experimental with no research into long term safety or side effects.
The WHO adverse reaction monitoring website has already recorded 1225 deaths and over 100,000 reactions so vaccination is not without serious risk. The medical safety data sheet states that the vaccine may not prevent Covid infection, and the Government admits it may not even prevent transmission which makes it all the more pointless.
The passport creates a misleading impression that the vaccine protects against Covid and is safe. It doesn't help when our politicians and public health officials wilfully withhold information on reported side effects. The public of New Zealand should not be coerced into being guinea pigs and must not be discriminated against if they decline a vaccine.
The legislation around The NZ Bill of Rights and The Health and Disability Commission Act is very clear that the government cannot enforce mandatory or experimental medication. Holding a nation hostage so citizens can’t travel or go to work without a medical procedure is extortion and criminal confinement.
Mandatory vaccination for international travel has raises so many concerns for medical freedom and the right to choose one’s own health care.
The covid passport discriminates against specific sectors of the community. Already the vaccine is associated with foetal deaths, plus questions have been raised about effects on fertility that are still unanswered. This 'passport' discriminates against those who have underlying health conditions, such as a history of allergies, for whom the vaccine is even more dangerous. And it discriminates against those of us who would prefer to develop natural immunity and would decline a vaccine for holistic health reasons.
COVID vaccines utilise new technology, by which mRNA is injected into the body causing human cells to become factories of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein in order to stimulate the production of antibodies. This so called vaccine is literally changing the function of human cells in ways that have never been assessed. Since there is no guarantee that they do not prevent the transfer of infection, what is the point of a covid passport to ‘prove’ that an individual has had a vaccine?
Since polls show between half and a third of New Zealanders have declared their intention to decline a Sars-Cov2 vaccine, discriminating against non-vaccinating individuals means that hundreds of thousands of people will choose not to fly at all. We understand that Air New Zealand just wants to get people flying again, but enforcing discrimination against those us who do not wish to risk a medical procedure is unethical and illegal.
We have concerns that your policy starts the process of turning our society into a two class system of vaccinating and non-vaccinating with an electronic “gold star” for the compliant. ANZ are going down the dangerous road of the Chinese ‘social credit’ system of rewards for the compliant and punishment for the non-compliant.
Researchers are already saying that vaccine antibody protection may only last a year, whereas immunity gained by experiencing and recovering from SARS-COV2 (and its relative corona viruses) infection probably lasts a lifetime. We still do not know if having the vaccine prevents an individual from developing natural immunity to SAR-COV2. If it doesn’t, that means that enforcing a Health Passport policy may ensure that population immunity takes much longer to achieve and is a wasted opportunity for individuals to build robust, long lasting immunity.
The idiotic part of the whole “covid passport, is that most of us already have natural immunity to SARS-COV2. Italian researchers have established that Italy had SARS-COV2 far earlier than they realised and others researchers have found more than half their test subjects had already acquired immunity to SARS-CoV2 proteins. There is little doubt that New Zealand, with its massive tourism numbers, had also been experiencing a novel infectious agent for many months before closing the borders. If the government allowed antibody tests into New Zealand, it’s likely that at least half of us would show acquired immunity, in which case neither the vaccine nor the health passport are needed and the borders can be safely opened.
We are not unsympathetic to the struggles of the airlines with the down turn in international travel but forcing travellers into a covid health passport is not the answer to getting people back into international travel. Instead the government should be providing those treatments that have been found to be effective as well as figuring out who is already immune, and use that information to not just save lives but save airlines.
It is already well known that flying increases your risk of colds and flu symptoms, so protecting passengers health has rationale. The way to do that is to encourage travellers to use what has been proven effective – high dose vitamin C (one tablet hourly while flying), optimising vit D and Zinc levels before flying, getting adequate sleep, herbal immune boosters such as Echinacea and elderberry.
It’s important to reassure New Zealanders that the legislation around our Bill of Rights and The Health and Disability Commission Act is very clear that the government cannot enforce mandatory or experimental medication on its population. Any medical treatment must always be with individual consent otherwise it is assault and coercion.
