People for Safe Vaccines

Shaping The Future

of Vaccine Safety




There is a concerted push by drug companies and governments worldwide to develop, manufacture and roll out COVID-19 vaccines.


In Australia, the federal government has granted AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Janssen-Cilag (a Johnson and Johnson subsidiary) fast-track approval to develop experimental vaccines, allowing those drug companies to defer many steps key to ensuring vaccine safety and efficacy. Numerous medical experts are warning about unorthodox and biased trials, unreleased results data, unknown long-term effects and the distinct possibility of death and serious injury from these new vaccines.

Many people are concerned about the speed with which these vaccines are being brought to market. In the government’s rush to rollout and potentially mandate the experimental vaccines, many people have been motivated to take action to bring about honesty, transparency and accountability with this vaccine program. It is from this background that we were inspired to form People for Safe Vaccines Ltd, to address these issues head-on.

Government coercion tactics cause many to submit to taking vaccines when it is not their preference. Tactics such as 'no jab, no play', 'no jab, no pay', 'no jab, no fly' and the like, together with statements from the top about "making them as mandatory as we can" are a real cause for concern. Now there is unfair pressure anticipated from employers and businesses who are suggesting ‘no jab, no job’ policies.

The influenza vaccine mandates rolled out in 2020 created a series of wide-spread problems in the aged-care sector, which included many violations of human rights, resulting in significant confusion and trauma for many. Exemptions based only on medical grounds and narrowing the parameters further put many at risk of injury. We oppose mandatory vaccination, particularly with experimental vaccines, and support freedom of choice and the resumption of exemptions. 


It cannot be assumed that any individual won't suffer adverse effects, particularly from an experimental vaccine, yet the government's COVID vaccination plan may affect all Australians. People suffering from auto-immune diseases seem to be more likely to react badly to vaccines, yet no screening tests are done to see if a side-effect is likely. This is insufficient, as injuries have occurred; the implication being exemptions will only be granted AFTER you become injured.

With the UK and US emergency approvals, these experimental vaccines are being administered by the millions and very serious adverse reactions being reported, including death and Bell’s Palsy. The reality is there has not been enough time to ascertain true long-term safety.

In relation to the COVID-19 experimental vaccines, the government has granted immunity to several drug companies, which is no incentive to develop safe or effective products.

Who We Are

We are a not-for-profit company with the following objectives:

  • To promote and encourage safe development, supply and use of human vaccines.

  • To inform, educate and raise public awareness in relation to vaccine safety and efficacy.

  • To take legal action to promote positive vaccine safety outcomes.

  • To do any other thing related to promoting vaccine safety, efficacy and quality.


This includes standing up for the individual’s right to choose whether or not to take the COVID vaccines.


We are a growing number of people and associations from the health and law enforcement sectors and the wider community, namely doctors, nurses, lawyers, police, vaccine-injured and ordinary people with a sincere interest in these issues.


We only ask that our members’ interests align with those of the Company.  More details are available via the Membership page.


Our Board of Directors consists of:

  • A retired lawyer whose son died from vaccine injury.

  • A health practitioner with 30 years of experience as a clinician, mentor, presenter and manager.

  • A multi-disciplinary holistic general medical practitioner.

  • A PhD researcher and academic who has focused on vaccines since 2004.


The Company Secretary and CEO is Serene Teffaha, an experienced lawyer committed to justice, and curbing the excesses of government power.

New Arbiter In Town 

Everyone knows how stringent vehicle safety regulations are, and that any report of a malfunction in a car manufacturer's model can initiate a world-wide recall. Similarly, cyber security providers must ensure the highest level of security at all times, and protecting the private data of its users is one of the most critical functions in business and government today.


With cyber security, penetration testing and auditing are required, and can never be performed by the company itself. This is unacceptable and would never pass compliance. It must be shown during audits that proper processes have been followed, including thorough testing.


​Car manufacturers are forced to perform significant crash testing, completely destroying their own product over and over, learning from its weaknesses, and forced to make improvements repeatedly, at their own expense, until they meet these stringent minimum safety requirements. Their crash test dummies show them how a human would be affected by the accident.


Safety is at the core of these. In fact, it is the driver of everything else in the entire process. And when things go wrong, liability doesn't end with compensation for damage caused, but can include prosecution and even personal liability for Company Directors.


Living in the western world of bureaucracy, with red tape designed to protect us from corruption, and failures in due diligence, is it really such a stretch to question the speed with which our department of health is looking to approve a COVID-19 vaccine, when we are clearly in the crash test dummy stage?


If we take the same standards that cyber security and vehicle safety are held up to, with the same implications for failures, and apply them to vaccine manufacturing, would they stack up?


The answer, we say, is a resounding no.


In fact, vaccine manufacturers can still manage to do business at the highest levels with governments, while having extensive contravention records, and apparently they do it without being questioned. How can this be?


Our department of health and its therapeutic goods administration are approving vaccines, made by organisations who have;


  • been charged with multiple offences​​​​​​​​

  • extremely poor safety studies they often perform themselves

  • done no long-term safety and efficacy trials

  • been granted indemnity from any liability if injuries occur


Where are the proper checks and measures for vaccine safety? Who is the arbiter to ensure due diligence is performed, and people are put above profits?

​What must these car manufacturers and cyber security tech giants think of this preferential treatment? And what do you think of being crash test dummies for the pharmaceutical industry?


If there is no arbiter, then it must be us, the people.


To achieve this we created People for Safe Vaccines Ltd, which aims to facilitate dialogue examining the facts, with a view to ensuring proper science and accountability are applied to this critical matter.​

About Us



Book of French Laws

Legal Action

Our legal team has issued a request for Statement of Reasons to the Department of Health in relation to the government’s decision to fast-track development of the COVID-19 vaccines. See letter here and the response here. This gives us more material to progress with legal action. Our legal team has also issued a further letter to the department of health requesting complete and accurate consumer information and confirmation of the right to decline vaccination.


We support the right of individuals to give informed consent to any vaccine and are doing our best to ensure that safety and efficacy is properly addressed. We will also work to ensure that people are free to decline vaccination and not be subjected to undue pressure to take the vaccine.

Our Commitment

Deep Knowledge

The key stake-holders are well versed in the area of vaccine science. They have;

  • first-hand experience with vaccine injury

  • an award-winning PhD in vaccine policy, and

  • are health professionals, and

  • experts in Law.

Our dynamic team, with all the skills and knowledge needed to mount the appropriate challenges, using non-biased, science-based evidence, and we have the legal expertise to contest, through the correct channels, to get results.

Vast Experience

Our legal team play a critical role in this undertaking, because they understand the legal manner in which to challenge government decisions. They have a combined 40 years experience in law and litigation. Our award winning PhD team member brings vast knowledge in the science and policy rationale for vaccination, but also having front-line health professionals and a parent of a severely vaccine injured child, dovetails the professional with the personal experience, which brings a unique comprehension of the true human significance of the issue, and has created a remarkable force to be reckoned with.

Court House


The concept that these COVID-19 vaccines are our only hope of returning to normal life is rooted in ideology, not evidence. And if there is no arbiter for this, then it must be us, the people. People for Safe Vaccines aims to examine the facts, then facilitate dialogue with the government, with a view to ensuring proper science and accountability are applied to this critical matter. It is our company that will take this challenge to Court, should it be required.

The Facts

The Facts
  • Human vaccines are not all created equal and each vaccine must be looked at critically in terms of safety and efficacy. Vaccines that have been rushed in the past have been known to cause serious injury and even death.

  • This is why pre-market development will normally take up to 10 years and in many cases more than 12 years, involving rigorous trials and regulatory scrutiny.

  • The leading COVID-19 vaccines are completely new and use mRNA to stimulate an immune response. They are technically experimental.

  • The federal government has nonetheless approved the new breed of vaccines from drug company Pfizer, as well as more traditional-type vaccines from AstraZeneca and Janssen-Cilag (a Johnson and Johnson subsidiary) for fast-track development.

  • Fast-tracking these experimental vaccines means that substantial proof of safety and efficacy is not required until after market.

  • Fast-tracking also means that all Australians will be the guinea-pigs in a high-risk experiment.

  • When the government announced its vaccine rollout in early January 2021, only 909 COVID-related deaths were recorded, most in aged care with serious preconditions and frailties.

  • Figures for influenza and pneumonia reported were well below average in 2020.  Last winter only 2 influenza deaths were reported across Australia.

  • The protocols around codifying COVID-19 cases and certifying deaths have been changed to allow for a significant discretion and conflation of the statistics. 

  • The ‘gold standard’ PCR test which targets ‘surrogate markers’ associated with protein DNA comprising less than 5% of a viral genome, is incapable of distinguishing a ‘live’ from non-infectious virus. The results are subject to interpretation, and the technique is at the mercy of errors from contamination, sample degradation and various technical issues.

  • The risk associated with COVID-19 has been overestimated due to misrepresentation of data and misuse of RT PCR tests, which cannot diagnose infection and produce false positive results in low prevalence settings.

  • The main government advisory committee has emphatically advised against asymptomatic PCR testing, referring to false positive results increasing.

  • Up to 80 percent of positive tests are in asymptomatic people.

  • The survival rate for those diagnosed with COVID-19 is over 99% for those below the age of 70.

  • The federal government has pre-purchased over 134M doses of vaccine. The federal and state governments are committed to inoculating the Australian public.

  • Big businesses like airlines and events agencies have also indicated they will require COVID-19 vaccinations in order to supply services.

  • Once these experimental vaccines are rolled out, it will become increasingly difficult to protect your family and loved ones from any harmful effects.

  • In the U.S. the CDC reported over 3,000 serious health reports in the first 5 days of inoculations for the Pfizer m-RNA vaccine. This was a stark contrast to the data collected during the studies for the Pfizer vaccine which showed negligible serious adverse events following immunisation. See CDC report on adverse and serious adverse events here.

  • Almost 2.7% of people receiving the Pfizer vaccine, in the first five days after approval in the US, have experienced health impacts that were characterised as “unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work, required care from doctor or health care professional”.

  • Reports of COVID-related deaths and severe adverse reactions are surfacing, specifically for the Pfizer vaccine. Experts are warning of risks of stroke, paralysis, convulsions/seizures, anaphylaxis, encephalitis, birth defects and others.

  • In Australia, the government has announced its rollout plan, listing priority groups for vaccination, which include those at high-risk, such as the elderly and frontline health workers. However, it is the elderly that appear to be mostly exposed to the risk of death from the Pfizer vaccine.

  • The drug companies’ trials meanwhile exclude some of these groups, and many others.

  • Do we need quasi-mandatory/high-risk/fast-track/new breed experimental vaccines pushed on us, when the recovery rate for most normal healthy people is over 99% and the real risks are as yet undetermined?

  • WE SAY NO!

  • The COVID-19 vaccines are not proven to be safe or effective.

  • No vaccine has ever been approved for the use against previous forms of coronavirus.

  • Some of these new experimental and untested vaccines use mRNA and lipid nanotechnology.

  • There has never been a licensed RNA vaccine because of the significant adverse effects in animal trials. Every animal study resulted in immune response accelerating infection, and by transduction (the process by which foreign RNA is introduced into a cell by a virus or viral vector) which alters their DNA.

  • Animal trials for these vaccines have not been conducted – we are the guinea pigs.

  • Based on the animal trials for previous vaccines, recipients may well become more susceptible to viral infection and suffer dangerous chemical reactions, severe allergic reaction, hyperinflammatory response and autoimmunity issues.

  • The results include infertility, various severe illnesses and death, and irreversible and irreparable alteration of DNA for future generations.

  • The regulatory authorities are anticipating a high volume of serious adverse reactions.

  • In the first days of inoculations in the UK, reports are emerging of serious allergic reactions.

  • The drug companies are immune from financial liability.

  • There is absolutely no long-term safety data.

  • Patients are not being adequately informed of the risks.

  • Doctors are being pressured to stay silent and/or to accept financial incentives.

  • There is no evidence these vaccines will reduce transmission of any disease, nor how long any protection might last.

  • COVID-19 symptoms are nonspecific and can be treated with vitamins and zinc and long-standing, low cost treatments, many either banned or restricted by the government.

  • The vaccine trials exclude certain groups prioritised by the government for vaccination, including elderly people with serious pre-existing conditions such as cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, prior history of allergic reactions, angioedema or anaphylaxis, and those with immune deficiencies.

  • The Australian Bureau of Statistics has reported that 73% of COVID-related deaths had pre-existing chronic conditions.

  • Pfizer's claim their vaccine is more than 90% effective has not been accompanied by sufficient data for review.

  • Pfizer's claims are, in any case, based only on 0.2% of the total trial group.

  • Pfizer's claims aren't showing their vaccine stops the spread of the disease, only lessening symptoms, and only in those who have COVID-19 already.

  • On the day Pfizer released its human trial results, its stock price increased by 15% and CEO Albert Bourla cashed in 60% of his shares, making USD$5million that day.

  • AstraZeneca have in the past been found guilty of multiple criminal offences relating to off-label or unapproved promotion of medical products, making false claims, offering kickbacks, bribery, consumer protection violation, healthcare offences, government-contracting violations and more.

  • AstraZeneca have been fined over US$1.1billion dollars for these offences and violations​ since 2000.

  • Both companies have been granted exemptions by the Australian government from future product liability claims from their COVID-19 vaccines.

Has our government been wrong on safety before? You bet they have. Remember;

  • Agent Orange

  • DDT

  • Asbestos

  • Glyphosate

  • Plastics

  • Formaldehyde

  • Thalidomide

  • Cigarettes 

  • Vioxx

  • Gardasil


After being promised these were safe, it turned out, in fact, they are responsible for horrendous injuries, death, genetic mutations and causing environmental damage. It also warrants a mention that "medical error" is the third leading cause of death, behind heart disease and cancer.

We must take the lessons of the past and apply them here, for the safety of the population and our future generations.

The Vaccines
Past Failures
What You Can Do

It is very easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless, being swept up in the frenzy that has followed the COVID-19 pandemic. The mainstream thought fed to us by media wants us to put our faith in their rushed, blanket approach where an experimental vaccine is the only option.

Because most vaccines have taken 10+ years to be granted approval, many of us sense the danger in their speedy authorisation, and are asking if the risks they pose are greater than benefits they cannot yet claim definitively. We feel a personal and social responsibility to do something positive to stop it. Now you can join your voice to a chorus of others by becoming a member of People for Safe Vaccines. Your membership contribution funds our fight to push back against the rush, and stem the tide.

The Facts

Their Statements, Our Concerns

Relating to the vaccines

"When we are used to five-year time frames, to see something go into human testing on March 17 is really a remarkable thing…Does this guarantee success? Not necessarily. Vaccine development is characterised by a high failure rate – often 93% between animal studies and registration of a product.” Dr Jerome Kim, Director-General of the International Vaccine Institute."

Natalie Dean, a biostatistician and expert in vaccine trial design at University of Florida

"Astrazeneca and Oxford get a poor grade for transparency and rigor when it comes to vaccine trial results they have reported."

"Over the years, AstraZeneca has had its share of legal trouble, paying more than $1 billion in federal fines and legal settlements for corrupting clinical trials and illegally promoting antipsychotics. It has also had to deal with several lawsuits filed by patients who say the drugmaker’s products injured them."

Dr Drew Weissman, MD, PhD, of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and an early pioneer of mRNA technology

"A possible concern could be that some mRNA-based vaccine platforms induce potent type I interferon responses, which have been associated not only with inflammation but also potentially with autoimmunity…Thus, identification of individuals at an increased risk of autoimmune reactions before mRNA vaccination may allow reasonable precautions to be taken.”

Dr James Lyons-Weiler PhD and Senior Research Scientist at the University of Pittsburgh

“In SARS, a type of “priming” of the immune system was observed during animal studies of SARS spike protein-based vaccines leading to increased morbidity and mortality in vaccinated animals who were subsequently exposed to wild SARS virus... of course no vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 has yet been tested in animals and therefore we do not yet know if pathogenic priming is in fact expected. Such studies should be undertaken before use of any vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 is used in humans.”

Relating to the PCR-Testing

Public Health Laboratory Network is an advisory committee of the AHPPC, the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (the principal advisory group to the Australian Government on COVID-19).

“PHLN is of the strong view that testing is targeted toward population cohorts where the maximum value is derived, and emphatically discourage non-clinically indicated asymptomatic testing. PHLN further advises that States and Territories with low COVID-19 prevalence should build up supplies of testing reagents and provide laboratory staff with leave. Rather than consuming both staffing and testing resources in an environment with low levels of COVID-19 infection…

As community prevalence of COVID-19 falls and the rate of asymptomatic testing increases, the proportion of false positive results may increase.”

a recent study sponsored by the Australian Government, Department of Health and Medibank Better Health Foundation including the author Dr Nick Coatsworth, being the Deputy Chief Medical Officer

“Here we report results from the first large-scale seroprevalence survey in Australia and estimate a seroprevalence of 0.28% (95% CI, 0–1.15%)…Overall, however, these data suggest that the low case number seen in Australia was reflective of low community transmission, not inadequate testing.”

Relating to prevalence of the virus in Australia

Relating to lethality and survival

Communicable Diseases Network is an advisory committee of the AHPPC (the principal advisory group to the Australian Government on COVID-19)

“COVID-19 presents as a mild illness for approximately 80% of cases, with fever and cough being the most commonly reported symptoms. Other symptoms include headache, sore throat, fatigue, shortness of breath, myalgia, anosmia, dysgeusia, rhinorrhoea, chills and vomiting. Atypical symptoms of COVID-19 may also occur including chest pain, diarrhoea and conjunctivitis. Preliminary evidence suggests that children experience milder clinical symptoms and potentially fewer infections than adults (similar to SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV infections). Severe or fatal outcomes occur more frequently in the elderly and those with comorbid conditions. Some individuals remain asymptomatic. Studies estimate that the asymptomatic proportion of cases ranges from 18% to 42%.”

Relating to data integrity

Peter Doshi, Associate Editor, British Medical Journal

"With 20 times more suspected than confirmed cases, this category of disease cannot be ignored simply because there was no positive PCR test result. Indeed this makes it all the more urgent to understand. A rough estimate of vaccine efficacy against developing covid-19 symptoms, with or without a positive PCR test result, would be a relative risk reduction of 19% —far below the 50% effectiveness threshold for authorization set by regulators. Even after removing cases occurring within 7 days of vaccination (409 on Pfizer’s vaccine vs. 287 on placebo), which should include the majority of symptoms due to short-term vaccine reactogenicity, vaccine efficacy remains low: 29%."
