墨尔本北部的Macedon Ranges和Hume市政区的家庭信箱中留下的反疫苗传单引起了人们的关注。<br />
Federal member Rob Mitchell of the McEwen constituency said he has received several complaints about the flyers.The leaflet includes conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccine and 5G mobile towers.
He said: "I think the people who leave these pamphlets need to grow up, stop importing American conspiracy theories and try to spread them here."
"We need to make sure we stay on the right track and not allow these lies and conspiracy theories to spread."
Hume Regional City Hall includes Sunbury.On Wednesday, after another hotel worker tested positive for the coronavirus, multiple locations were deemed exposed by the Victorian Health Department.
This is the third case so far related to the Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport, after a returning traveller and an authorized official also tested positive for the coronavirus.
Mr. Mitchell appealed to those who received the flyer to throw it in the trash immediately.
He said: "We need to make sure that people don't look at this rubbish."
"And make sure that people get advice from health professionals instead of trying to emulate some people in the US organization."
Vaccine conspiracy theory
In the previous year, groups peddling conspiracy theories and anti-vaccine ideas tried to overwhelm the government’s health information.
In April last year, a Nazi flag and two Chinese national flags were posted on a mobile signal tower in Kyabram.The Nazi flag is painted with the hashtag #COVID4.
In August last year, other anti-vaccine pamphlets were distributed around the Coburg area.
The pamphlet placed in mailboxes around Macedon and Hume claimed that COVID-19 vaccination is more deadly than the virus, and that vaccination is for population control, not COVID-19.
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the first vaccine approved by the federal regulatory agency and will arrive in Australia in the next few weeks.
The interval between the two vaccinations is three weeks, and the vaccine must be stored and transported at minus 70 degrees Celsius.
The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine does not require refrigeration, but it has not yet been approved by federal regulators.
The federal government has purchased 5380 million doses of vaccine.
South Africa will suspend the launch of the AstraZeneca vaccine because trial data show that the vaccine provides limited protection against mild diseases caused by the variants that appear in the country.
Early data from an Oxford University study showed that the AstraZeneca vaccine provides only "minimal protection" against mild diseases caused by the South African COVID-19 variant.
But Australian experts and health authorities said that the samples were too small to draw any major conclusions.
